Padres | Will Middlebrooks sent down

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 10:34:58 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B/SS Will Middlebrooks was optioned to Class AAA El Paso Wednesday, July 22, with OF Abraham Almonte coming up from El Paso.

Fantasy Tip: Almonte failed to impress in a cup of coffee earlier this season, but he's leading off today. If he can carve a niche, he could be worth a low-end FantasyScore flyer.

Padres | Will Middlebrooks sitting vs. Giants

Mon, 20 Jul 2015 15:31:37 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Will Middlebrooks is not in the starting lineup Monday, July 20. SS Alexi Amarista draws into the lineup, and he is playing shortstop and batting second against San Francisco Giants SP Tim Hudson Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Middlebrooks ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) in all fantasy formats Monday. Interestingly, he has been receiving starts at shortstop, which could potentially be a huge boon to his fantasy stock if he lands eligibility there. Keep an eye on that situation. Amarista ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is a low-priced flier for FantasyScore contests Monday, but you'll want to keep your expectations in check. He has a .207/.276/.290 slash line for the season.

Sun, 19 Jul 2015 11:02:50 -0700

San Diego Padres INF Will Middlebrooks will start at shortstop and bat eighth against Colorado Rockies SP Eddie Butler Sunday, July 19.

Fantasy Tip: Middlebrooks ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is just 2-for-25 (.080) over his last 10 games and is hitting .191 during day games this season. Avoid using him in FantasyScore.

Padres | Will Middlebrooks out again

Wed, 08 Jul 2015 14:26:24 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Will Middlebrooks is out of the starting lineup Wednesday, July 8. 2B Yangervis Solarte is starting at the hot corner and batting cleanup against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Charlie Morton.

Fantasy Tip: As long as Middlebrooks continues to struggle at the plate, Solarte ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) could continue to see regular playing time at third base. Solarte could be a sneaky sleeper/value pick on FantasyScore tonight. He's hitting much better against righties (.260/.310/.383 with three of his four home runs) than against southpaws. Being in a run-producing spot in the lineup makes him more attractive for daily users.

Padres | Will Middlebrooks returns

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 15:20:39 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Will Middlebrooks (ankle) is back in the starting lineup against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano Tuesday, July 7. Middlebrooks is hitting sixth in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Middlebrooks ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) last started a game June 28. His average is down to .220 (52-for-236) on the season, and he last recorded a knock on June 25. It's safe to say that Middlebrooks is a weak option tonight on FantasyScore against Liriano.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte not starting Tuesday

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 12:42:10 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Yangervis Solarte is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, July 7, against the Pittsburgh Pirates. 3B Will Middlebrooks is starting in Solarte's place.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) has two homers and a .292 average in the last seven days, but he is likely sitting due to his .167 average against Pirates starter Francisco Liriano. Middlebrooks ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is hitting .357 against Pittsburgh but his average against Liriano isn't much better. Look elsewhere for FantasyScore help.

Padres | Will Middlebrooks remains out

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 13:10:47 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Will Middlebrooks (ankle) is not in the starting lineup Monday, July 6, and 2B Yangervis Solarte is starting at third base. Solarte is batting second against Pittsburgh Pirates SP A.J. Burnett Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is 11-for-31 over his past nine games with five runs, seven extra-base hits, four RBI and a 1.136 OPS. Still, he is a risky start against Burnett. Middlebrooks ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has been limited to pinch-hit duty since leaving the game early Friday, June 26.

Padres | Will Middlebrooks remains out

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 10:34:30 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Will Middlebrooks (ankle) is not in the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals SP Lance Lynn Sunday, July 5. 2B Yangervis Solarte will start at third base and is batting second in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Middlebrooks ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) continues to be sidelined with an ankle injury and his return date is uncertain. Solarte ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) has picked at least one hit in seven of his last eight games with two home runs and four RBI in that span. He could be a solid starting option for owners on FantasyScore.

Padres | Will Middlebrooks close to returning

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 14:43:57 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Will Middlebrooks (ankle) participated in on-field agility drills Thursday, July 2, and he could return to the lineup Friday, July 3.

Fantasy Tip: Middlebrooks ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has a .221/.249/.383 slash line this season, and he is nothing more than a low-priced flier for FantasyScore players going forward. In seasonal formats, he should be left on waivers outside of cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues.

Padres | Will Middlebrooks remains out

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 10:43:44 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Will Middlebrooks (ankle) is sitting out his second straight game Wednesday, July 1. 2B Yangervis Solarte will start at the hot corner again and is hitting fifth against Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) recorded the team's only hit last night, but he has come back down to earth after a hot start to the season and hit only .206 (13-for-63) with no home runs and four RBI in June. He's one to avoid against the hot Walker.
