San Diego Padres news, rumors and injuries
Tue, 28 Jul 2015 13:54:34 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Continue stashing Myers ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) in all formats. He's expected to immediately return to the leadoff role for the Padres when he's healthy and off the DL.
Tue, 28 Jul 2015 09:05:37 -0700
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.

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.

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.
Mon, 27 Jul 2015 08:19:04 -0700
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.
Sun, 26 Jul 2015 16:39:09 -0700
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.
Sun, 26 Jul 2015 12:59:40 -0700
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.
Sat, 25 Jul 2015 05:17:35 -0700
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.
Sat, 25 Jul 2015 05:12:44 -0700
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.
Sat, 25 Jul 2015 05:06:02 -0700
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.

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.
Fri, 24 Jul 2015 15:22:25 -0700
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.
Fri, 24 Jul 2015 15:10:57 -0700
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.
Fri, 24 Jul 2015 14:59:05 -0700
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.
Fri, 24 Jul 2015 10:09:32 -0700
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.
