Padres | Cory Spangenberg continues to lead off

Tue, 19 May 2015 16:36:04 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Cory Spangenberg is starting at third base and hitting leadoff against Chicago Cubs SP Jason Hammel Tuesday, May 19. 3B Will Middlebrooks will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: With Wil Myers (wrist) on the DL, expect Spangenberg ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) to continue to lead off for the Friars. He doesn't boast much power at all, but he has 20-stolen base potential over a full season. Remember, stolen bases are worth two points at FantasyScore. His spot atop the lineup on an everyday basis should make him at least worth a consideration as a cheaper second base play on a daily basis.

Padres | Cory Spangenberg leading off Thursday

Thu, 14 May 2015 15:36:07 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Cory Spangenberg is starting at third base and hitting leadoff against Washington Nationals SP Doug Fister Thursday, May 14. 3B Will Middlebrooks has shifted across the diamond to start at first base.

Fantasy Tip: Spangenberg ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has slowly raised his average to .283 (15-for-53) this year as his playing time increases thanks due to injuries. His value increases while hitting atop the Friars' order, but he remains nothing more than a sleeper play at FantasyScore against Fister and the Nats.

Padres | Will Middlebrooks breaks homer drought

Thu, 14 May 2015 04:38:11 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Will Middlebrooks hit a solo home run Wednesday, May 13, against the Seattle Mariners. It was his first since April 19.

Fantasy Tip: Middlebrooks ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) has struggled with the longball this season, which has made him a bit less attractive in terms of fantasy value. He's still an inexpensive option to the high-cost third basemen when you're putting together a lineup.

Padres | Will Middlebrooks back in at 3B

Tue, 12 May 2015 16:42:43 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Will Middlebrooks is starting at third base and hitting eighth in the batting order against Seattle Mariners SP James Paxton Tuesday, May 12.

Fantasy Tip: Middlebrooks ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) hasn't started a game since May 5, and he remains without a hit in May to drop his average to .189 (18-for-95) on the season. He could break through for his first knock of the month tonight, but counting on him for your FantasyScore lineup isn't advised, especially while hitting at the bottom of the lineup.

Padres | Will Middlebrooks continues to sit

Fri, 08 May 2015 17:00:13 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Will Middlebrooks remains out of the lineup Friday, May 8. 2B Yangervis Solarte is starting at third base and hitting fifth in the batting order against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Jeremy Hellickson.

Fantasy Tip: Middlebrooks last started on Tuesday, but he has gone hitless in his last 21 plate appearances with three strikeouts to drop his season average to below .200. He's quickly losing playing time to Solarte ($3,300, 6.6% of cap), who is off to a good start and makes much more contact. Solarte has a slash line of .350/.409/.533 with both of his home runs and 16 RBI against righties this year, making him a great value play at FantasyScore Friday night.

Padres | Will Middlebrooks out again

Thu, 07 May 2015 14:39:57 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Will Middlebrooks is not in the starting lineup against the Arizona Diamondbacks Thursday, May 7. 2B Yangervis Solarte is batting fifth and playing third base Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Middlebrooks' ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) average has dipped below .200, as he is currently in a 1-for-27 slide. Fantasy players in all formats will want to avoid him until he shows some life at the plate. Solarte ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) has 17 RBI on the season with a .299/.357/.429 slash line, and he is an upside source of cap relief for FantasyScore players. Solarte is also garnering more value in deep mixed and NL-only leagues, especially with his eligibility at multiple positions.

Padres | Will Middlebrooks sitting Wednesday

Wed, 06 May 2015 09:53:07 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Will Middlebrooks is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 6. 2B Cory Spangenberg is starting at third base and hitting second against San Francisco Giants SP Chris Heston.

Fantasy Tip: Middlebrooks last recorded a hit on April 27, and his average has fallen to .191 on the year. He could begin to lose playing time regularly to Spangenberg ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) or Yangervis Solarte. Spangenberg has eight hits in 33 at-bats this year but only one RBI, making him a low-end second base option at FantasyScore.

Padres | Will Middlebrooks resting

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 10:07:56 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Will Middlebrooks is not in the starting lineup against the Colorado Rockies Thursday, April 23.

Fantasy Tip: Yangervis Solarte ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) draws the start at third base. The switch hitter homered last night to give him two homers on the season and a .343 (12-for-35) batting average in the early going. Stick with him at a cheap price on FantasyScore, especially while he's hitting cleanup today.

Padres | Will Middlebrooks out vs. Giants

Fri, 10 Apr 2015 15:20:04 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Will Middlebrooks is not in the starting lineup against the San Francisco Giants Friday, April 10. 2B/3B Cory Spangenberg is starting at third base and batting second.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to remove Middlebrooks from all your lineups Friday. At his cap hit, there is upside for Spangenberg ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) in daily contests, especially with him hitting out of the two hole. Still, it would be a risky start.

Padres | Will Middlebrooks set to start at 3B

Mon, 30 Mar 2015 15:48:33 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Will Middlebrooks has played very well this spring and is lined up to start at third base on opening day next week. Middlebrooks has hit .333 (15-for-45) with two home runs, two doubles and eight RBI, and he has just one error on defense.

Fantasy Tip: Middlebrooks' injury-plagued last two seasons likely have him off many fantasy owner's radars heading into the 2015 season. For that reason, he's mainly an NL-only commodity to start, but he could be a popular waiver wire addition in deep mixed leagues if he can stay healthy in San Diego. Middlebrooks likely won't do your team batting average any favors, but he has plus power that could make a difference.
