Padres | Abraham Almonte leading off vs. Cubs

Wed, 20 May 2015 15:26:42 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Abraham Almonte is starting in center field and hitting leadoff against Chicago Cubs SP Tsuyoshi Wada Wednesday, May 20. OF Will Venable will start on the bench against a lefty.

Fantasy Tip: Almonte ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) and Venable ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) are effectively in a platoon situation in center field with Wil Myers (wrist) on the DL. Venable offers more speed and power upside as a sleeper play at FantasyScore.

Padres | Wil Myers still out

Sat, 16 May 2015 14:10:58 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Wil Myers (wrist) is out of the lineup Saturday, May 16, in favor of OF Will Venable.

Fantasy Tip: Venable ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has five hits in 15 at-bats the last week, but they were all singles. He has just one steal this year, and he's not an attractive option on FantasyScore.

Padres | Wil Myers still sitting

Thu, 14 May 2015 15:56:41 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Wil Myers (wrist) remains out of the starting lineup Thursday, May 14. OF Will Venable is starting in center field and hitting second in the batting order against Washington Nationals SP Doug Fister.

Fantasy Tip: Venable ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has just 46 at-bats in a reserve role this year, and he's hitting .261 with three home runs and six RBI. His value slightly increases while hitting in the two-hole, but he's still more of a low-end outfield option in FantasyScore contests.

Padres | Will Venable producing

Sun, 10 May 2015 17:39:34 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Will Venable has started three straight games, posting a .500 batting average with a home run, two RBIs, three runs scored, three walks and a stolen base.

Fantasy Tip: Venable ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has been starting since Yonder Alonso (shoulder) went on the DL, and he is off to a fast start. He could make a nice short-term source of cap relief at FantasyScore.

Padres | Will Venable earns another start

Sat, 09 May 2015 15:13:56 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Will Venable is starting in center field Saturday, May 9, shifting OF Wil Myers to first base.

Fantasy Tip: Venable went 3-for-5 with a homer last night. This could be a regular arrangement if he continues hitting. He's worth the speculative flyer at $1,600 (3.2% of your cap) on FantasyScore.

Padres | Will Venable starting in CF

Fri, 08 May 2015 16:49:02 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Will Venable is starting in center field and hitting eighth in the batting order against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Jeremy Hellickson Friday, May 8. OF Wil Myers has moved to first base with 1B Yonder Alonso (shoulder) on the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Venable ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) could see an increase in playing time with Alonso on the DL if the Friars elect to use Myers at first base often. Venable is hitting only .133 (4-for-30) this year, though, and he was only able to put up a slash line of .228/.298/.332 against righties in 2014. Venable is a weak play at FantasyScore tonight, but a name to watch if he gets hot with more consistent playing time in the short term.

Padres | No Justin Upton Thursday

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 10:15:14 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton is not in the starting lineup Thursday, April 23. OF Will Venable receives the start in left field and is hitting sixth in the batting order against Colorado Rockies SP Jordan Lyles.

Fantasy Tip: Venable ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a low-end outfield option at FantasyScore today, but he does have two home runs this season and has speed to boot. He has one home run in nine career at-bats against Lyles, for what it's worth.

Padres | Justin Upton not in lineup

Sun, 19 Apr 2015 11:01:38 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton (quadriceps) is not in the starting lineup Sunday, April 19. OF Will Venable will start in left field.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor Upton's ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) injury over the next few days to see when he will play again. Venable ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has gone 2-for-9 at the plate in 2015 and may not be a great option on FantasyScore.
