Padres | Austin Hedges to start Wednesday

Tue, 05 May 2015 20:21:57 -0700

San Diego Padres C Austin Hedges will make his first career start Wednesday, May 6, against the San Francisco Giants.

Fantasy Tip: Hedges is one of the top catching prospects in the majors, and he could emerge as a strong FantasyScore play in future weeks if he continues to get a chance to play and if he can hit like he did in the minors.

Padres | Josh Johnson to play catch soon

Tue, 05 May 2015 20:17:22 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Josh Johnson (triceps) said Tuesday, May 5, that he had some triceps tightness after his simulated game a week ago. He said the pain is now gone, and he will play catch later this week.

Fantasy Tip: It's uncertain when Johnson will be able to return to the big club, but FantasyScore players will have another solid pitching option to use when Johnson finally is able to return.

Padres | Brandon Morrow heading to DL

Tue, 05 May 2015 15:54:37 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Brandon Morrow (shoulder) was put on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, May 5, with right shoulder inflammation. The move is retroactive to May 3. RP Frank Garces was recalled from Triple-A El Paso in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Morrow was pitching very well this year and deserves to be stashed in a DL slot in all fantasy formats. Odrisamer Despaigne ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) was successful in his lone spot start this year and is likely to enter the starting rotation once again. He's a waiver wire target for rotation-needy fantasy owners and will make for a nice matchup play at FantasyScore.

Padres | Alexi Amarista resting

Mon, 04 May 2015 16:49:35 -0700

San Diego Padres SS Alexi Amarista is not in the starting lineup Monday, May 4. SS Clint Barmes draws the starting nod and is hitting eighth in the batting order against San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner.

Fantasy Tip: Barmes ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should be avoided at FantasyScore tonight against MadBum.

Padres | Jedd Gyorko starting Monday

Mon, 04 May 2015 16:46:59 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Jedd Gyorko is starting at second base and hitting sixth in the batting order against San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner Monday, May 4.

Fantasy Tip: Gyorko ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) came through with a pinch-hit home run, his first of the year, yesterday. He's still only hitting .161 (9-for-56) on the season, though, and he should be avoided at FantasyScore while facing Bumgarner.

Padres | Yonder Alonso off vs. tough lefty

Mon, 04 May 2015 16:41:06 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Yonder Alonso is not in the starting lineup Monday, May 4. 2B Yangervis Solarte is starting at first base and hitting fifth in the batting order against San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has had a fine season early in 2015. However, you'll likely want to avoid him at FantasyScore against Bumgarner. Solarte has done most of his damage this year hitting left-handed, which he won't do tonight. Right-handed, he's hitting only .118 (2-for-17) with one RBI.

Padres | Derek Norris hitting second

Mon, 04 May 2015 16:32:11 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris is hitting second in the batting order against San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner.

Fantasy Tip: While it's a positive that Norris ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is hitting higher up in the lineup tonight, the fact that he's facing tough lefty Bumgarner likely cancels that out. Norris profiles as a bit of a weak play tonight, even though he's had a great 2015 season up to this point.

Padres | Austin Hedges being recalled to San Diego

Mon, 04 May 2015 13:19:15 -0700

San Diego Padres C Austin Hedges was recalled from Triple-A El Paso Monday, May 4.

Fantasy Tip: Hedges posted a .324/.392/.521 slash line with two homers, eight doubles, 15 RBI, eight walks and eight strikeouts in 21 games at Triple-A El Paso. However, Derek Norris has started 22 of 26 games behind the dish and has hit extremely well. Expect Hedges to be eased into action, and therefore, his fantasy value lies more in spot starting in FantasyScore contests and not seasonal leagues.

Padres | Jedd Gyorko making progress at plate?

Sun, 03 May 2015 19:43:27 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Jedd Gyorko hit a pinch-hit, two-run home run in an 8-6 win over the Colorado Rockies Sunday, May 3, and he said after the game that he feels his swing continues to improve as the year goes on.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the homer, Gyorko ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is still hitting just .161 this season and is a brutal 3-for-40 against right-handed pitchers. He needs to show a lot more consistency at the plate before he is worth considering at FantasyScore.

Padres | Brandon Morrow earns second victory

Sun, 03 May 2015 06:17:42 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Brandon Morrow allowed two earned runs while striking out four batters over six innings against the Colorado Rockies to record his second win of the season Saturday, May 2.

Fantasy Tip: Outside of a poor showing in Coors Field, Morrow ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) has limited opponents to two earned runs or fewer in each of his four starts. On the season, he has a 2.73 ERA, a 1.09 WHIP and 23 strikeouts through 33 innings. He is a great low-priced pitching option for FantasyScore players, especially when starting in pitcher-friendly PETCO Park and against favorable matchups. Seasonal owners can turn to Morrow in deep mixed leagues, too.

Padres | Clint Barmes gets start

Sat, 02 May 2015 16:42:15 -0700

San Diego Padres SS Clint Barmes will be in the starting lineup Saturday, May 2, against the Colorado Rockies and SP Jorge De La Rosa. Padres SS Alexi Amarista will be used off the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Barmes ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is benefiting from a .389 BABIP and is hitting .296 so far this season. Unfortunately for FantasyScore owners, Barmes only has one home run, one RBI and six runs to show for his high average. Batting eighth Saturday, Barmes should be avoided on FantasyScore.

Padres | Jedd Gyorko in lineup

Sat, 02 May 2015 16:23:14 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Jedd Gyorko is in the lineup Saturday, May 2, against the Colorado Rockies and SP Jorge De La Rosa. Gyorko will play second base with 3B Yangervis Solarte going to first base and 1B Yonder Alonso out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Gyorko ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has started 2015 with a pitiful .135 batting average but will get the start against a lefty due to his career .255 average against southpaws. Until Gyorko starts showing some signs of promise in 2015, he should be avoided on FantasyScore.

Padres | Derek Norris hitting second

Sat, 02 May 2015 16:17:33 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris will bat second in the order Saturday, May 2, against the Colorado Rockies. The right-handed hitting Norris will face Rockies LHP Jorge De La Rosa.

Fantasy Tip: Norris ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is crushing lefties to the tune of a .611 batting average through 18 plate appearances this season. That number may be sure to regress, but Norris needs to be in lineups whenever the Padres face a southpaw. The premium spot in the batting order only helps Norris' case on FantasyScore.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte starting again

Fri, 01 May 2015 15:20:12 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Yangervis Solarte is starting at second base again and hitting second in the batting order against Colorado Rockies SP Eddie Butler Friday, May 1. 2B Jedd Gyorko is on the bench yet again.

Fantasy Tip: At this point, Solarte ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has become the Padres' starting second baseman over the struggling Gyorko. Gyorko shouldn't be held in shallow mixed leagues, and Solarte is worth an addition in those same formats. In daily games such as FantasyScore, Solarte continues to be an acceptable second base play, especially while hitting at the top of the lineup.

Padres | Derek Norris pounding southpaws

Thu, 30 Apr 2015 15:54:03 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris is 11-for-18 (.611 batting average) against left-handed pitchers with seven runs and four RBI so far this season.

Fantasy Tip: This is nothing new for Norris ($3,900, 7.8% of cap), as he has a career .306/.383/.504 slash line against lefties. At his current rate, Norris is a near must-start backstop with a southpaw on the hill for FantasyScore players.
