Padres | Friars could still deal pending FAs

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 13:39:16 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Ian Kennedy, RP Joaquin Benoit and OF Will Venable will not be extended contract extension offers, if they are not dealt in August.

Fantasy Tip: The Padres have a favorable upcoming schedule and playoff aspirations, so they stood pat at the deadline. However, they could still deal a few pending free agents, if they prove to be out of contention next month. It is a fluid situation, but at this point, it seems likely Kennedy, Benoit and Venable will stick with the Friars for a playoff race.

Padres | Ian Kennedy, Will Venable all but dealt

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 14:43:17 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Ian Kennedy and OF Will Venable are considered all but traded, as the Padres are expected to make a number of moves before the trade deadline Friday, July 31, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Kennedy ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) will likely be dealt to a contender, and he has the upside to return handsomely through the end of the season, especially if he lands in the right situation. After all, Kennedy has 52 strikeouts with a 2.83 ERA through 57 1/3 innings over his past 10 starts. Venable ($3,900, 7.8% of cap), on the other hand, projects to be a platoon player -- at best -- in his new digs. His value is likely to decline alongside his at-bats.

Cubs | Will Venable eyed by Cubbies

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 15:38:37 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Will Venable is drawing interest from the Chicago Cubs.

Fantasy Tip: A trade of Venable ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) wouldn't be an earth-shattering move, and he'd likely be a fourth outfielder in Chicago. Even though Venable's playing time wouldn't be affected all that much, it would have to be seen as a positive for his fantasy value in deeper leagues, as he's hitting much better on the road (.284) than at Petco Park (.196) this year.

Padres | Will Venable sitting vs. Fish

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 15:26:37 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Will Venable is not in the starting lineup against the Miami Marlins Friday, July 24. OF Melvin Upton Jr. is starting in center field and batting seventh against Marlins SP Dan Haren Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Venable ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) in all fantasy formats Friday, and Upton ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) doesn't stand out as a great FantasyScore option, either. Upton owns an underwhelming .198/.279/.317 slash line through 1111 plate appearances over his past three seasons.

Padres | Justin Upton remains out

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 16:11:36 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton (oblique) is not in the starting lineup against San Francisco Giants SP Chris Heston Tuesday, July 21. OF Will Venable will start in left field and is batting seventh, while OF Melvin Upton Jr. will start in center field and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Upton ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) remains out of the lineup and there is no timetable for his return, so owners should monitor the situation. Melvin Upton ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) is hitting a solid .265 this month with three RBI, but owners should be able to find a better option to use.

Padres | Melvin Upton in CF Friday

Fri, 10 Jul 2015 14:35:04 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Melvin Upton Jr. is starting in center field and hitting ninth against Texas Rangers SP Wandy Rodriguez Friday, July 10. OF Will Venable is sitting out against the left-handed pitcher.

Fantasy Tip: Upton ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) hasn't been much of an offensive force for the Friars in his time with them, and he has only two hits in 24 at-bats (.083) against left-handed pitchers with nine strikeouts. Avoid him on FantasyScore tonight.

Padres | Will Venable starting in center field

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 12:21:38 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Will Venable is starting in center field and batting seventh against Pittsburgh Pirates SP A.J. Burnett Monday, July 6.

Fantasy Tip: Venable ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has entered a near timeshare with Melvin Upton Jr. ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) who has been relegated to the bench Monday. Venable is nothing more than a flier for FantasyScore players Monday, as Burnett has been dominate at PNC Park this season.

San Diego Padres OF Melvin Upton Jr. will start in center field and hit seventh in the order Tuesday, June 30, against the Seattle Mariners and LHP Mike Montgomery. OF Will Venable comes out of the lineup.

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 12:05:38 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Will Venable is hitting second against San Francisco Giants SP Chris Heston Thursday, June 25.

Fantasy Tip: Venable ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) gains more FantasyScore value hitting atop the Friars' order this afternoon. All five of his home runs this year have come against right-handed pitchers, too, and four of them have come on the road.

Fantasy Tip: Venable ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) has been playing well with hits in four of his six games. Venable could still be a starting option on FantasyScore even though he was dropped from first to sixth in the lineup.
