The Seattle Mariners acquired RP Nick Vincent from the San Diego Padres Wednesday, March 30, in exchange for a player to be named. Vincent was 0-1 with a 2.35 ERA for San Diego last year in 26 games. Righties have hit just .195 (64-for-329) with a .493 OPS against Vincent in his career, and he has a 9.42 strikeout-to-walk ratio against them.
Fantasy Tip: Vincent had been a reliable reliever for the Friars, but he had just one career save in four seasons and isn't immediately in a position to possibly handle ninth-inning duties if Steve Cishek stumbles. Vincent doesn't have any fantasy value for now.

San Diego Padres 2B Jedd Gyorko was demoted to Class AAA El Paso Wednesday, June 10, and RP Nick Vincent was recalled in a corresponding move. Gyorko was hitting .210 with two home runs and 11 RBI and had lost his starting job at second base to 2B Cory Spangenberg.
Fantasy Tip: You can safely dump Gyorko in all leagues except for the deepest of NL-only formats. Spangenberg ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has speed but limited power capabilities at the keystone for the Friars. He's a low-end sleeper selection on FantasyScore in the right matchups, like tonight against Atlanta Braves starter Williams Perez while hitting second in the order.
