Padres | Abraham Almonte in lineup

Mon, 25 May 2015 15:09:25 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Abraham Almonte will start in right field and bat eighth in the order Monday, May 25, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. OF Matt Kemp will serve as the designated hitter in the American League park.

Fantasy Tip: Almonte ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) is just 2-for-his-last 13 at-bats, spanning seven games. A switch-hitter, Almonte fairs much worse against right-handed pitchers. FantasyScore owners will need to look elsewhere for a bargain play.

Padres | Abraham Almonte leading off vs. Cubs

Wed, 20 May 2015 15:26:42 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Abraham Almonte is starting in center field and hitting leadoff against Chicago Cubs SP Tsuyoshi Wada Wednesday, May 20. OF Will Venable will start on the bench against a lefty.

Fantasy Tip: Almonte ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) and Venable ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) are effectively in a platoon situation in center field with Wil Myers (wrist) on the DL. Venable offers more speed and power upside as a sleeper play at FantasyScore.

Padres | Wil Myers remains sidelined

Sun, 17 May 2015 11:32:25 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Wil Myers (wrist) remains out of the lineup Sunday, May 17, against the Washington Nationals. OF Abraham Almonte will play center field and bat second.

Fantasy Tip: Myers ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) is a possibility to return to the starting lineup in the next few days. Almonte ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) provides salary cap relief in FantasyScore but not much else.

Padres | Abraham Almonte leading off for SD

Wed, 13 May 2015 16:33:01 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Abraham Almonte is starting in left field and hitting leadoff against Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker Wednesday, May 13. OF Justin Upton is serving as the designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Almonte ($1,700, 3.4% of cap), a switch hitter, hits just .234 with four of his five career home runs against right-handers from the left side of the plate. While Walker has struggled with consistency this year, Almonte shouldn't excite FantasyScore owners looking for a deep sleeper, even while hitting leadoff.

Padres | Abraham Almonte starting in CF

Tue, 12 May 2015 16:37:54 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Abraham Almonte is starting in center field and hitting seventh in the batting order against Seattle Mariners SP James Paxton Tuesday, May 12.

Fantasy Tip: Almonte ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) is a switch hitter that only hits .236 (25-for-106) in his career from the right side while facing lefties. It's hard to recommend him at FantasyScore.

Padres | Yonder Alonso headed to DL

Fri, 08 May 2015 16:24:48 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Yonder Alonso (shoulder) was placed on the disabled list with a deep bone bruise in his right shoulder Friday, May 8. OF Abraham Almonte is being called up from the minors in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: The Padres can get creative now, as both Wil Myers ($4,300, 8.6% of cap), who is playing first base Friday night, and Derek Norris ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) can fill in for Alonso. That could mean more playing time for Will Venable ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) in center field and Austin Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) behind the plate.

Padres | Show off new-look outfield

Fri, 01 Aug 2014 17:07:00 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Yangervis Solarte made his first start in left field Friday, Aug. 1, against the Atlanta Braves, while OF Abraham Almonte made his team debut in center field while batting in the eighth position of manager Bud Black's lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte can be valuable in NL-only fantasy leagues for his versatility from an eligibility perspective, and Almonte will be worth a $1 waiver claim in all NL formats, especially if he gets semi-regular at-bats.
