Padres | James Shields has solid outing Wednesday

Wed, 25 May 2016 18:43:39 -0700

San Diego Padres SP James Shields allowed two runs on five hits over six innings in a no-decision against the San Francisco Giants Wednesday, May 25, with one walk and six strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Shields is 2-2 with a respectable 2.33 ERA during the month of May, with 35 strikeouts over 31 2/3 innings. He will make his next start against the Seattle Mariners Tuesday, May 31.

Padres | James Shields likes facing Giants

Wed, 25 May 2016 12:36:43 -0700

San Diego Padres SP James Shields has a 2.56 ERA and 1.11 WHIP in six career starts against the San Francisco Giants, the team he faces Wednesday, May 25. Shields has allowed three earned runs against them in 13 2/3 innings this season.

Fantasy Tip: Shields has been pretty good this year with a 3.07 ERA in nine starts but has been hurt by a lack of run support (2-6 record). He can be susceptible to the long ball, but pitching in San Fran will limit that today. He's also facing a lineup without Buster Posey and Hunter Pence, so he's attractive as a midrange daily play.

Padres | Wil Myers due back Friday

Wed, 25 May 2016 11:27:58 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Wil Myers (forearm, wrist) will return to the lineup Friday, May 27, according to manager Andy Green.

Fantasy Tip: Myers figures to face Robbie Ray in Arizona Friday. He'll be a midrange consideration in the desert.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte in two-hole

Wed, 25 May 2016 10:40:08 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Yangervis Solarte is starting at third base and is hitting second against San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy Wednesday, May 25.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte had a career year with San Diego last year with 14 home runs, 63 RBI and a .270 average. His year got off to a bad start when he hit the DL early in April, but he should play frequently for San Diego and offers those in deeper leagues a steady presence in the middle infield with multiposition eligibility.

Padres | Wil Myers out again

Wed, 25 May 2016 10:32:15 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Wil Myers (forearm, wrist) is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 25. 1B Brett Wallace is starting at first base and is hitting fifth against San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy.

Fantasy Tip: Peavy has certainly had his share of struggles this year, so Wallace could return excellent value Wednesday afternoon. Wallace is hitting just .209 on the year, though, including .195 against right-handers. However, all three of his homers this year came against righties. He's a contrarian deep sleeper.

Padres | Wil Myers to sit again

Tue, 24 May 2016 23:42:20 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Wil Myers (forearm) is not expected to start Wednesday, May 25, according to manager Andy Green. With the team having Thursday off, Green wants to give Myers three full days of rest to recuperate.

Fantasy Tip: Myers was swinging the bat better in the Dodgers series (6-for-17, 3 RBI) but has struggled in May (.227-2-7 in 87 ABs). The injury doesn't sound serious -- Green even noted Myers was available for late-game action as needed -- so maybe a few days of rest will get Myers back on track.

Padres | Andrew Cashner activated from 15-day DL

Tue, 24 May 2016 23:16:35 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner was activated from the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday, May 24, and started that evening's game against the San Francisco Giants. He allowed three runs on four hits in six innings of work. RP Kevin Quackenbush was demoted to Class AAA El Paso in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Cashner's stay on the DL didn't fundamentally change how he has been pitching this season. His control remains spotty, and he still hasn't worked more than six innings in a start. Until something changes for the better, Cashner isn't worth starting in most fantasy leagues.

Padres | Andrew Cashner not limited

Tue, 24 May 2016 15:59:38 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner (hamstring) will not be on a pitch count in his first start off the disabled list against the San Francisco Giants Tuesday, May 24. "No limitations whatsoever," manager Andy Green said of Cashner, who owns a 4.93 ERA in seven starts this season. "No pitch-count limitations, he feels great, he's been throwing some extended bullpens. He's ready to go."

Fantasy Tip: Cashner has been shaky (3.6 BB/9) in his seven starts this year, and he also has an ugly 1.47 WHIP. He's a contrarian player in daily games in a pitcher's park Tuesday night. In standard leagues, avoiding Cashner in his first start off the DL is wise. In most cases in mixed leagues, owners should take a wait-and-see approach before adding Cashner off the waiver wire.

Padres | Wil Myers sitting out

Tue, 24 May 2016 15:51:07 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Wil Myers (wrist, forearm) is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 24. He clutched his left wrist/forearm in the game Monday, May 23. 1B Brett Wallace is starting at first base and hitting sixth against San Francisco Giants SP Jeff Samardzija. 3B Yangervis Solarte is at third base and is batting cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: Myers owners need to play close attention to this, as wrist issues ended his season prematurely in 2015. He's only hit .218 with two home runs and seven RBI in May, too, so perhaps there's more to his struggles. Wallace and Solarte are rather weak four and five hitters but could have an opportunity to drive in runs. At best, though, they're midrange daily picks against Samardzija in a pitcher-friendly park.

Padres | Drew Pomeranz solid in no-decision

Mon, 23 May 2016 23:35:39 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Drew Pomeranz allowed two hits and four walks while fanning four in seven shutout innings of his no-decision against the San Francisco Giants Monday, May 23.

Fantasy Tip: Pomeranz is 2-2 with a 0.87 ERA, a 0.84 WHIP and 29 K's in 31 innings this month. Pomeranz is a post-hype prospect that has emerged this year. There's no track record for him at this level. If you can sell high and acquire a reliable chip for him, now would be the time to pull the trigger.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte not playing

Mon, 23 May 2016 15:53:33 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Yangervis Solarte is not in the starting lineup Monday, May 23. 1B Brett Wallace is starting at third base and is batting cleanup against San Francisco Giants SP Johnny Cueto.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte likely will move back and forth between second and third base now that he's back from the DL. He can contribute modestly across several categories after a solid season in San Diego in 2015. His multipositional eligibility plays well as depth in cavernous mixed and NL-only universes, too. Wallace has a .333 career average in 15 at-bats against Cueto and is a deep sleeper pick this evening.

Padres | Jon Jay has good history against Cueto

Mon, 23 May 2016 15:44:55 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Jon Jay is hitting .346 with two home runs and five RBI in 26 at-bats in the last five years against San Francisco Giants SP Johnny Cueto, who faces the Padres Monday, May 23.

Fantasy Tip: Jay makes good contact and gets on base at a solid clip for the Friars, but he doesn't have much power and rarely runs. That gives him a low ceiling for daily gamers, despite his good numbers against Cueto in recent history. Jay is a lukewarm option in DFS tonight.

Padres | Colin Rea sent down

Mon, 23 May 2016 15:24:57 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Colin Rea was optioned to Class AAA El Paso. The team needed a reliever, so they recalled RP Keith Hessler.

Fantasy Tip: The Padres played a 17-inning game on Sunday night, not to mention an 11-inning affair the night before, so some extra depth for the bullpen was sorely needed. This move has nothing to do with Rea's efforts thus far, as he's actually been pretty solid following his rough first start of the year at Coors Field. In fact, he's gone at least five innings in all eight of his starts since then, while yielding three runs or fewer in all but one of them. He's a fine option in deep leagues.

Padres | Melvin Upton collects three hits

Mon, 23 May 2016 04:23:52 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Melvin Upton Jr. went 3-for-7 in a 9-5 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday, May 22.

Fantasy Tip: While his brother, Justin Upton, struggles mightily in Detroit, Melvin Upton is quietly putting together a decent season for San Diego. He currently has a .266 batting average to go with an on-base mark of .341 and a slugging percentage of .442. Melvin is worth owning in NL and mixed leagues and is a decent DFS play when the matchup is favorable.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte batting cleanup

Sun, 22 May 2016 12:57:45 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B/3B Yangervis Solarte will make his first start since April 9 against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Kenta Maeda on Sunday, May 22, starting at second base and batting fourth. His return to the lineup will bump OF Melvin Upton to fifth in the order, while 3B Brett Wallace drops down to sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte drew a walk-off walk in the 11th inning of Saturday's win after missing more than a month with a strained hamstring. The Padres like batting the 28-year-old Venezuelan in the heart of the order, and he is eligible at second base in most leagues, making him a worthy waiver-wire add in all leagues in which he isn't already owned. Solarte isn't a great DFS play today given the matchup, but he will be down the road if he continues to bat cleanup.
