From -- thru  --


Padres | Justin Upton out again vs. Dodgers

Fri, 02 Oct 2015 14:32:09 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton (neck) is not in the starting lineup Friday, Oct. 2. SS Alexi Amarista is starting in left field and batting sixth against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Alex Wood Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Upton ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) in all fantasy formats Friday, and he is a risky own through the end of the season with his status unknown. FantasyScore players should fade Amarista ($2,900, 5.8% of cap), too, as he owns a .595 OPS over the past three seasons.

Padres | Cory Spangenberg not starting Friday

Fri, 11 Sep 2015 17:03:43 -0700

San Diego Padres INF Cory Spangenberg is not in the starting lineup against San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy Friday, Sept. 11. INF Alexi Amarista will play second base and bat seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Remove Spangenberg ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) from all fantasy lineups. Amarista ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is batting just .216 on the season and is hitless in three career at-bats versus Peavy, making him a poor FantasyScore starting option tonight.

Padres | Jedd Gyorko playing shortstop

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 13:23:43 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Jedd Gyorko is at shortstop Tuesday, Aug. 25, against the Washington Nationals. SS Alexi Amarista is seated.

Fantasy Tip: Gyorko ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) actually has a fairly warm bat over the past week (.308) and against Nationals SP Stephen Strasburg (.286), which likely accounts for his inclusion in the lineup.

Padres | No Jedd Gyorko vs. Braves

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 15:49:56 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Jedd Gyorko is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 18. 2B Cory Spangenberg is playing second base and batting second, and SS Alexi Amarista is starting at shortstop and batting eighth against Atlanta Braves SP Matt Wisler Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: In a prime spot in the lineup, Spangenberg ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) boasts some upside as a source of cap relief at FantasyScore Tuesday. Amarista ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) and Gyorko ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) can be avoided. With Spangenberg back, there could be some timeshares developing in the infield for the Padres, so continue to check back for updates on who will receive the majority of playing time.

Padres | Alexi Amarista sitting Monday

Mon, 17 Aug 2015 15:31:46 -0700

San Diego Padres SS Alexi Amarista is not in the starting lineup Monday, Aug. 17. 2B Jedd Gyorko will move to shortstop, and 2B Cory Spangenberg will start at the keystone and hit second against Atlanta Braves SP Williams Perez.

Fantasy Tip: Spangenberg ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) just returned from the DL at the end of last week, and he's batting .257 (47-for-183) with two home runs, 11 RBI and seven stolen bases this year. He's a cheap, affordable sleeper play on FantasyScore tonight with an agreeable lineup placement against a hittable pitcher.

Padres | Will Venable off Monday

Mon, 03 Aug 2015 15:14:39 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Will Venable isn't in the starting lineup Monday, Aug. 3, against the Milwaukee Brewers. OF Melvin Upton Jr. will start in center field and hit eighth in the order, while SS Alexi Amarista will slide into the two-hole in the order against RHP Wily Peralta.

Fantasy Tip: Upton Jr. ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) had his last multi-hit game July 10. While Upton Jr. doesn't offer much cap relief, he represents too much risk on FantasyScore, and he can be avoided by owners.
