Padres | James Shields could be hard to trade

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 09:05:37 -0700

San Diego Padres SP James Shields might go unclaimed on trade waivers because he has three years and $65 million left on his current contract.

Fantasy Tip: It seems like the Padres are more likely to trade Andrew Cashner or Tyson Ross at the deadline than Shields ($7,400, 14.8% of cap). The wins have been hard to come by for Shields of late, but he remains a solid fantasy pitcher with an elite 10.2 K/9 rate.

Padres | Friars discussing Starlin Castro

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 15:31:50 -0700

Chicago Cubs SS Starlin Castro has been discussed by the San Diego Padres, according to sources. The Cubs are inquiring about the Padres' starting pitchers.

Fantasy Tip: Castro ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) has faded quickly and is hitting .139 (11-for-79) with no home runs and five RBI in July to drop his season average to .233. A move to pitching-friendly Petco Park would only further drop his fantasy value moving forward. If Castro were to be traded, it would allow the Cubbies to move Addison Russell to shortstop - his natural position - and create room for Javier Baez at second base.

Padres | Wil Myers to have wrist examined

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 12:34:20 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Wil Myers (wrist) is scheduled to have his wrist examined Monday, July 27, after he experienced some soreness in his wrist this past weekend. Myers felt good after swinging a bat Friday, July 24, but experienced the soreness after swinging Saturday, July 25.

Fantasy Tip: Myers ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) does not have a timetable for his return and could be out longer if the soreness lingers. Owners should continue to watch his progress over the next few days to receive a better idea of his status.

Padres | Jedd Gyorko being shopped

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 08:19:04 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Jedd Gyorko is being shopped heavily by the team, according to sources. Gyorko is owed $32 million from 2016-19 with a $1 million buyout.

Fantasy Tip: Gyorko ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has a .215-5-18 and has really fallen off a cliff since his 23-homer rookie season in 2013. Pass on FantasyScore until he shows signs of life.

Padres | Justin Upton ends drought

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 16:39:09 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in a 3-2 win over the Miami Marlins Sunday, July 26, recording his first multi-hit effort since June 27.

Fantasy Tip: It has been a rough month of July for Upton ($6,000, 12.0% of cap), and he is hitting just .154 with four RBI. He still has plenty of upside thanks to his combination of power and speed, but he is struggling too much right now to justify his price tag at FantasyScore.

Padres | Alexi Amarista starting Sunday

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 12:59:40 -0700

San Diego Padres SS Alexi Amarista is batting eighth against Miami Marlins SP Mat Latos Sunday, July 26. SS Clint Barmes is receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Amarista ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) only has five hits in 28 at-bats this month and is 1-for-8 versus Latos in his career. You can find better middle infield options in FantasyScore.

Padres | Brett Wallace hits solo shot

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 05:17:35 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Brett Wallace went 2-for-3 with a solo home run during San Diego's 3-1 win over the Miami Marlins Friday, July 24.

Fantasy Tip: Wallace ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) sits at 9-for-28 with two doubles and a home run for the season, and if he can maintain some consistency at the dish, there is an outside shot for semi-regular at-bats. The Padres' lineup could look extremely different next week, so NL-only owners could have a nice find. FantasyScore players should view Wallace as a low-end source of cap relief at his point.

Padres | Another long fly for Matt Kemp

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 05:12:44 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Matt Kemp went 2-for-4 with a double and a solo home run during the Padres' 3-1 win over the Miami Marlins Friday, July 24.

Fantasy Tip: The extra-base hits upped Kemp's ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) year-long totals to 22 doubles and 11 home runs with a .256/.302/.415 slash line. Of late, the 30-year-old outfielder has a .313/.383/.663 line with 10 runs, seven home runs and 17 RBI over his past 22 games. Kemp also heated up to finish the 2014 campaign, so another strong finish isn't out of the question.

Padres | Andrew Cashner fans five during victory

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 05:06:02 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner struck out five batters while allowing a single run on five hits and a walk through seven innings during San Diego's 3-1 win over the Miami Marlins Friday, July 24.

Fantasy Tip: It was just the fourth win of the season for Cashner ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) who is also the subject of trade rumors. This was a plus-matchup for the righty, so it is nice to see him capitalize, as it has been an otherwise forgettable campaign. He currently sports a 3.93 ERA, a 3.77 FIP, a 1.31 WHIP and a 7.9 K/9.

Padres | Will Venable sitting vs. Fish

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 15:26:37 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Will Venable is not in the starting lineup against the Miami Marlins Friday, July 24. OF Melvin Upton Jr. is starting in center field and batting seventh against Marlins SP Dan Haren Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Venable ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) in all fantasy formats Friday, and Upton ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) doesn't stand out as a great FantasyScore option, either. Upton owns an underwhelming .198/.279/.317 slash line through 1111 plate appearances over his past three seasons.

Padres | Brett Wallace slots into five-hole

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 15:22:25 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Brett Wallace is playing third base and batting fifth against Miami Marlins SP Dan Haren Friday, July 24.

Fantasy Tip: While he may be a tempting source of cap relief at FantasyScore, Wallace ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has just 27 plate appearances this season, and it is likely wise to aim higher. After all, you would be passing up a lot of offensive upside at the first base position. Wallace could be worth a desperation flier in NL-only and cavernous mixed leagues, but you'll want to keep your expectations in check.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte out of the lineup

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 15:10:57 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Yangervis Solarte is not in the starting lineup against the Miami Marlins Friday, July 24.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) plays nearly everyday as a utility man, but he hasn't done much at the dish with a .246/.302/.372 slash line through 308 plate appearances. He should be left to the waiver wire outside NL-only and cavernous mixed leagues.

Padres | Justin Upton returns to the lineup

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 14:59:05 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton (oblique) is playing left field and batting seventh against Miami Marlins SP Dan Haren Friday, July 24.

Fantasy Tip: While you can slide Upton ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) back into your seasonal league lineups, he likely isn't the best FantasyScore option Friday. It is a so-so matchup against Haren ($5,700, 11.4% of cap), and Marlins Park is spacious. Plus, Upton will need a top-tier showing to return a profit on his cap hit.

Padres | Andrew Cashner on the block

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 10:09:32 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner is a player the Padres really want to move before the trade deadline.

Fantasy Tip: Cashner ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) has been equally as average at home as on the road with 4-plus ERAs in both settings. He's a midrange starting option on FantasyScore.

Padres | Friars looking to move James Shields

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 10:09:12 -0700

San Diego Padres SP James Shields is a player the Padres really want to move before the trade deadline.

Fantasy Tip: Shields ($7,500, 15.0% of cap) has struggled a bit in his transition to the National League, but his home/road splits are drastic. He has a 5.01 ERA on the road with a 2.47 ERA at home. His FantasyScore value would take a dip if dealt.
