Padres | Three San Diego regulars resting

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 14:57:16 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Jon Jay, C Derek Norris and SS Alexei Ramirez are not in the starting lineup Thursday, June 16. OF Travis Jankowski is starting in center field and hitting leadoff, C Christian Bethancourt is catching and batting seventh and 2B Alexi Amarista is at the 6 and is hitting eighth against Washington Nationals SP Tanner Roark.

Fantasy Tip: Jankowski has the favorable lineup spot setting the table, but he's a light hitter and hasn't translated his speed to much success on the base paths (five steals in eight attempts). He's still more of a low-end outfield pick as a deep sleeper. Bethancourt has some power but remains inconsistent offensively, and Amarista carries very little fantasy allure because of limited power and speed.

Padres | Wil Myers hits walk-off single

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 22:19:49 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Wil Myers drove in SS Alexei Ramirez with a base hit in the ninth inning to give the Padres a 4-3 win over the Atlanta Braves on Tuesday, June 7. Myers went 2-for-4 with an RBI, a run scored and a stolen base.

Fantasy Tip: Myers continued his recent hot streak, posting his fourth consecutive multi-hit game and seventh in nine games. Over that stretch, Myers is 17-for-38 (.447) with 3 HRs, 9 RBI and 9 runs scored to raise his average from .259 to .290 on the year. He's suddenly helping out in all five major fantasy categories and is worth owning in all leagues.

Padres | Alexei Ramirez drives in five

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 23:27:08 -0700

San Diego Padres SS Alexei Ramirez went 3-for-5 with two home runs, three runs scored and five RBI against the Seattle Mariners on Wednesday, June 1.

Fantasy Tip: Ramirez has now hit safely in seven of his last eight games, going 11-for-30 (.367) with three home runs, eight RBI and five runs scored in that time. On the downside, he hasn't stolen a base since May 6. If he's not running, Ramirez's fantasy appeal is limited to NL-only setups.

Padres | Wil Myers out of lineup

Fri, 13 May 2016 14:56:46 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Wil Myers is not in the starting lineup Friday, May 13. 1B Brett Wallace is playing first base and is hitting cleanup against Milwaukee Brewers SP Junior Guerra. Also, SS Alexei Ramirez moves up into the two-hole.

Fantasy Tip: Wallace's production has improved lately while playing every day (two home runs, five RBI this month), but he's still only hitting .226 this month. The matchup tonight isn't overwhelming, so Wallace has a decent shot to return value in daily formats again. Ramirez gains minimal value in daily games, too, but he has almost no power to speak of.

Padres | Alexei Ramirez returns for nightcap

Wed, 11 May 2016 15:11:10 -0700

San Diego Padres SS Alexei Ramirez (hamstring) is back in the starting lineup for Game 2 of a doubleheader against Chicago Cubs SP John Lackey Wednesday, May 11. Ramirez is hitting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Ramirez has no home runs on the year and has limited upside in all fantasy formats, especially coming off a hammy cramp last night in cold weather. To add to it, he's hitting just .154 with no homers or RBI against Lackey in his career in 15 plate appearances. Look elsewhere.

Padres | Three Padres sit Game 1

Wed, 11 May 2016 08:09:08 -0700

San Diego Padres SS Alexei Ramirez (hamstring), OF Jon Jay and OF Melvin Upton Jr. are out of the lineup Wednesday, May 11, in the first game of a doubleheader. OF Travis Jankowski is leading off, OF Alex Dickerson is hitting sixth and SS Adam Rosales is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Dickerson has a homer and four RBI in six at-bats this season, and he's worth a basement flyer against Kyle Hendricks. Jankowski and Rosales aren't worth consideration.

Padres | Alexei Ramirez exits

Tue, 10 May 2016 23:12:52 -0700

San Diego Padres SS Alexei Ramirez (hamstring) left the game Tuesday, May 10, with a hamstring cramp. He expects to play Wednesday, May 11.

Fantasy Tip: Ramirez is hitting .261 with 11 RBI and three steals this season. He's a so-so option in DFS if he's good to go.

Padres | Derek Norris, Alexei Ramirez sitting

Wed, 13 Apr 2016 12:42:55 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris and SS Alexei Ramirez are not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 13. C Christian Bethancourt is catching and hitting sixth, while SS Alexi Amarista is at shortstop and is hitting eighth against Philadelphia Phillies SP Jerad Eickhoff. Also, 3B Adam Rosales gets a start at third base and is hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Eickhoff is an impressive young pitcher for the Phils, so the Padres could have trouble with him in the series finale. Bethancourt, Amarista and Rosales are all low-end options in daily formats today.

Padres | Alexei Ramirez contract details

Fri, 22 Jan 2016 17:27:03 -0800

Updating a previous report, San Diego Padres SS Alexei Ramirez signed a one-year contract worth $3 million. The deal also includes a $4 million mutual option for the 2017 season.

Fantasy Tip: The 34-year-old Ramirez hit .249 with 10 home runs and 62 RBIs in 154 games last season and could experience a dip in those numbers while playing his home games at the pitcher-friendly Petco Park. On the other hand, he did walk more frequently and strike out less often in 2015 than he had in other recent seasons, according to FanGraphs.com. He is a low-end middle infield option who should be selected in the later rounds of NL-only and cavernous mixed leagues.

Padres | Alexei Ramirez signs with San Diego

Thu, 14 Jan 2016 12:11:34 -0800

Free-agent SS Alexei Ramirez (White Sox) signed a one-year contract with the San Diego Padres Thursday, Jan. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Ramirez is coming off the worst season of his career and heading to pitcher-friendly PETCO Park doesn't bode well for the 34-year-old shortstop turning it around. At best, Ramirez is a low-end middle infielder in cavernous mixed and NL-only formats.
