Padres | Matt Kemp blasts 12th homer

Sun, 29 May 2016 05:47:20 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Matt Kemp went 1-for-4 with a solo home run during the Padres' 8-7 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks Saturday, May 28.

Fantasy Tip: While improvement in the batting average (.235) would be nice, it is tough to complain about Kemp's counting stats. He has 23 runs, 12 home runs and 32 RBI for the year, and remains a viable outfielder in all fantasy formats. There could be a buy-low window, too, as Kemp has improved significantly in the second half in each of the past two seasons with 32 of his 48 home runs coming after the All-Star break.

Padres | Christian Friedrich throws seven scoreless

Fri, 27 May 2016 23:14:19 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Christian Friedrich scattered three hits over seven shutout innings against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday, May 27. It was his first major-league win since July 13, 2012.

Fantasy Tip: Friedrich has pitched well in two of his three outings and even managed to minimize the damage in his third, a sloppy turn against the Los Angeles Dodgers. His 1.1 K/BB ratio is a concern, but Friedrich should have some NL-only appeal, at least in the short term.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte heating up

Fri, 27 May 2016 23:01:57 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Yangervis Solarte clubbed a pair of two-run home runs in the team's 10-3 shellacking of the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday, May 27. He now has four extra-base hits, including three homers, in his last two games.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte, who returned last Saturday after six weeks on the DL due to a hamstring injury, is 5-for-12 with three home runs and six RBI in the last two-plus games after an initial 0-for-10 stretch following his activation. He's a capable hitter that brings additional value to fantasy rosters by being able to cover multiple positions. Scoop him up for depth.

Padres | Matt Thornton to return this weekend

Fri, 27 May 2016 22:50:00 -0700

San Diego Padres RP Matt Thornton (Achilles') is expected to be activated during the team's weekend series with the Arizona Diamondbacks. The lefty hasn't taken the hill this season due to tendinitis in his Achilles.

Fantasy Tip: Thronton was signed as a setup man for Fernando Rodney, but Ryan Buchter has been lights out in the role with Thornton sidelined. His only real value was going to be in leagues that count holds. Now even that seems uncertain. Leave him on waivers until it becomes clearer how he'll be used.

Padres | Tyson Ross close to throwing

Fri, 27 May 2016 16:26:44 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Tyson Ross (shoulder) is doing weighted-ball drills in San Diego. Manager Andy Green said Ross could resume throwing within the next week.

Fantasy Tip: What a disappointment Ross has been to owners this year. After allowing seven earned runs in 5 1/3 innings in his season debut he landed on the DL and hasn't been back since. He has a ways to go, too, and will likely need to go on a rehab assignment. He's probably not worth stashing in the majority of mixed leagues right now, and he's a high-risk, high-reward starter with an career 8.5 K/9 but also a dangerous career 3.6 BB/9.

Padres | Wil Myers enjoys playing in desert

Fri, 27 May 2016 15:42:18 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Wil Myers has an on-base percentage of .500 and is 12-for-32 with two home runs, four doubles and eight walks in 40 career plate appearances at Chase Field, the home of the Arizona Diamondbacks. The Padres are playing a three-game series in Arizona this weekend.

Fantasy Tip: Myers is returning after a few games off due to forearm soreness. He's struggled a bit in May but should be returned to all seasonal lineups because of his success hitting at Chase Field.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte at second base

Fri, 27 May 2016 15:33:40 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Yangervis Solarte is starting at second base and is hitting cleanup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Robbie Ray Friday, May 27. 2B Alexi Amarista will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte should be a lineup regular for SD now that he's healthy, and his multipositional eligibility makes him a decent depth piece in deep mixed and NL-only universes. Hitting cleanup tonight against a lefty also makes him an attractive value pick in daily games.

Padres | Wil Myers back in lineup

Fri, 27 May 2016 15:26:46 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Wil Myers (forearm) is back in the starting lineup and is facing Arizona Diamondbacks SP Robbie Ray in the two-hole Friday, May 27.

Fantasy Tip: It's a welcome return for his owners, but he's hitting only .218 with two home runs and seven RBI with 17 strikeouts in 87 at-bats this month. The matchup against Ray is a decent one, though, so he should be returned to all seasonal lineups. It's understandable if you try to avoid him in DFS.

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.
