Padres | Colin Rea's innings to be limited

Fri, 01 Jul 2016 15:15:49 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Colin Rea will have his innings limited going into the second half of the season, according to manager Andy Green. He logged 139 innings as a career high with Class A Lake Elsinore in 2014.

Fantasy Tip: Rea has shown flashes this year but has a 5.05 ERA and 1.42 WHIP in 14 starts (76 2/3 innings). Those kind of numbers don't play well in mixed leagues, so he's strictly a matchup play in NL-only leagues, and his value is dropping with him expected to be limited in the second half.

Padres | Travis Jankowski leading off Friday

Fri, 01 Jul 2016 15:10:25 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Travis Jankowski is starting in center field and is hitting leadoff against New York Yankees SP Nathan Eovaldi Friday, July 1.

Fantasy Tip: Jankowski and Alex Dickerson are likely to split time in center with Jon Jay (forearm) out about a month. Jankowski has appeal in deep mixed and NL-only leagues because of his speed if he sees enough playing time. He's not a real intriguing daily pickup.

Padres | Erik Johnson placed on DL

Fri, 01 Jul 2016 14:54:04 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Erik Johnson (elbow) was placed on the disabled list with a right elbow sprain Friday, July 1. In a corresponding move, RP Jose Dominguez was recalled from Class AAA El Paso.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson remains a highly regarded young pitcher, but he hasn't been able to produce in the majors yet with a 5.28 ERA, 1.62 WHIP and 6.7 K/9 through 22 career starts. He's a potential stash in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues, but you should aim higher in the majority of seasonal leagues.

Padres | Ryan Buchter next man up for saves?

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 12:04:22 -0700

San Diego Padres RP Ryan Buchter is the likely closer if RP Fernando Rodney is traded, in the opinion of the San Diego Union-Tribune's Dennis Lin.

Fantasy Tip: A speculative grab of Buchter is advised immediately. He has a 2.91 ERA and a 1.18 WHIP with 50 strikeouts through 34 innings this season. Stay tuned for updates, but Rodney is expected to be dealt at some point this season, and Buchter looks the part of a solid closer.

Padres | Andrew Cashner to return Sunday

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 19:59:36 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner (neck) is expected to come off the 15-day disabled list to start Sunday, July 2, against the New York Yankees.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners will want to avoid Cashner until he can officially return and prove his health in a full start without any setbacks.

Padres | Wil Myers having fine month

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 14:35:04 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Wil Myers has more walks (18) than home runs (11) in June.

Fantasy Tip: Myers has matured as a hitter in 2016 and is having a breakout year with a .284/.343/.530 slash line, 18 home runs, 53 RBI and 11 stolen bases. He's been an All-Star for the Padres and is a no-brainer must-start in all fantasy formats.

Padres | Matt Kemp likes facing Gallardo

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 11:10:35 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Matt Kemp is hitting .360 (9-for-25) with two home runs, seven RBI, seven runs and three walks in 28 career plate appearances against Baltimore Orioles SP Yovani Gallardo, who he faces Wednesday, June 29.

Fantasy Tip: Kemp has 16 home runs and 53 RBI on the year, but he's disappointed some with a .262 average and bad .278 on-base percentage. He remains valuable in all fantasy leagues for his power, though, and he's a fine addition to DFS lineups against Gallardo today.

Padres | Brett Wallace draws into lineup

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 10:23:56 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Brett Wallace is starting at third base and is hitting fifth against Baltimore Orioles SP Yovani Gallardo Wednesday, June 29. 3B Yangervis Solarte moves over to second base.

Fantasy Tip: Wallace does have some pop in his lumber, but he's hitting just .211 on the season with four home runs and 11 RBI in 142 at-bats. However, Wallace is hitting .429 (9-for-21) with a home run and RBI in 21 career at-bats against Gallardo. Every way you slice it, Wallace is a deep sleeper pick in daily setups.

Padres | Wil Myers homers again

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 22:30:37 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Wil Myers went 1-for-2 with a three-run home run against the Baltimore Orioles on Tuesday, June 28. He also drew three walks, scored twice and stole a base.

Fantasy Tip: That's 18 home runs this season for Myers and 11 this month. In addition to the 11 jacks, he's batting .326 to go with 24 runs scored, 31 RBI and five steals -- in fact, Myers is one of just 10 players with double-digits homers and stolen bases on the season. He's a must start in all formats.

Padres | Erik Johnson drops another one

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 22:00:46 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Erik Johnson surrendered four runs on seven hits in five innings against the Baltimore Orioles on Tuesday, June 28. He walked none and struck out two.

Fantasy Tip: Same old, same old for Johnson, who is now a combined 0-6 on the year (0-2 with the ChiSox, 0-4 with the Friars) and was beaten for the second time in a week by the Orioles. Johnson just hasn't been good this year, allowing multiple home runs in all six of his starts, even in the heavy air of Petco Park. Johnson shouldn't have a home on anyone's fantasy roster right now.

Padres | Tyson Ross making progress

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 17:22:51 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Tyson Ross (shoulder) will throw another bullpen session and could progress to live batting practice by the weekend. The Padres are hoping Ross can return around the All-Star break.

Fantasy Tip: Ross has been a huge disappointment to fantasy owners this year and hasn't pitched since his season debut back on April 4. He's likely on the waiver wire in most formats, and for good reason. Ross has strikeout upside but has struggled with walks in his career, so those in mixed leagues will want to see him prove his health before reinvesting in him in the second half.

Padres | Jon Jay out 4-6 weeks

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 16:46:18 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Jon Jay (forearm) is expected to be out four to six weeks, and he could return in the first week of August if he doesn't have any setbacks.

Fantasy Tip: Jay was a fringe fantasy commodity in deep mixed leagues because of his lack of power (two home runs, 23 RBI), but he was one of San Diego's better hitters with a .296 average atop the order. You can likely part with him for now in deep mixed leagues. Alex Dickerson and Travis Jankowski are likely to split time in the outfield in the meantime, with Dickerson slightly more appealing to those in NL leagues because of his bat. Prospects Manuel Margot or Hunter Renfroe could become options further down the road if the Padres choose to go that route.

Padres | Derek Norris takes a seat

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 15:13:11 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, June 28. C Christian Bethancourt is doing the catching and is hitting sixth against Baltimore Orioles SP Ubaldo Jimenez.

Fantasy Tip: Bethancourt has some pop with four home runs in 86 at-bats. Even in a nice matchup, though, he doesn't have a ton of appeal to fantasy owners and is more of a low-end catching pick in DFS.

Padres | Melvin Upton leading off

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 15:08:03 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Melvin Upton Jr. is starting in center field and is leading off against Baltimore Orioles SP Ubaldo Jimenez Tuesday, June 28. OF Alex Dickerson is starting in left field and is batting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: This could be a regular occurrence for a while with Jon Jay out with a broken forearm. Upton has had a revival this year, hitting .261 with 11 home runs, 36 RBI and 17 stolen bases. Hitting leadoff hurts his RBI chances, but Upton has plenty of speed to burn and is useful in all fantasy leagues the way he's played. Dickerson should split time in the outfield with Travis Jankowski, but Dickerson's bat is more appealing to those in need of depth in NL-only leagues.

Padres | Andrew Cashner making rehab start

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 14:11:10 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner (neck) will make a rehab start for Class A Lake Elsinore Tuesday, June 28.

Fantasy Tip: Cashner could be close to rejoining the starting rotation, but he could be part of a six-man rotation when he returns. He's sporting a 4.75 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and only 6.1 strikeouts per nine innings, too, so he hasn't been attractive to owners in mixed leagues this season. You'll want to take a wait-and-see approach before turning to him again in those setups.
