Padres | Derek Norris out of the lineup vs. Texas

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 15:27:52 -0700

San Diego Pares C Derek Norris is not in the starting lineup Monday, Aug. 31. C Austin Hedges is starting behind the plate and batting seventh against Texas Rangers SP Colby Lewis Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Norris ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) in all fantasy formats Monday. Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief at FantasyScore Monday, as he boasts an uninspiring .189/.240/.274 slash line for the season.

Padres | James Shields earns road win

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 15:48:06 -0700

San Diego Padres SP James Shields earned his first road victory since May when he beat the Philadelphia Phillies 9-4 on Sunday, Aug. 30. Shields allowed one run and six hits with eight strikeouts and one walk. He was 0-4 with a 5.63 ERA in his previous eight road starts.

Fantasy Tip: Shields ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) has had no luck away from Petco Park, and you still may want to be skittish in games outside of San Diego. The Phillies are a decent-hitting team but definitely not a murderer's row of hitters.

Padres | Matt Kemp back in the lineup

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 13:25:20 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Matt Kemp (shoulder) will start in right field against Philadelphia Phillies SP Adam Morgan Saturday, Aug. 29, and is batting third in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Kemp ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) is back after missing a few games because a shoulder injury. He is hitting .315 with four home runs and 22 RBI in August and could be a solid starting option in FantasyScore.

Padres | Cory Spangenberg sitting out

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 13:09:19 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Cory Spangenberg is not in the starting lineup against Philadelphia Phillies SP Adam Morgan. 2B Jedd Gyorko will start at second base, while SS Clint Barmes will start at shortstop and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Spangenberg ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) should return to the lineup in the near future. Barmes ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is hitting only .161 this month and should be avoided by owners on FantasyScore.

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 19:25:51 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Kennedy ($8,100, 16.2% of cap) finished the month of August with a 2-3 record despite a 2.30 ERA through five outings. He is scheduled to make his next start against the Texas Rangers Wednesday, Sept. 2.

Padres | Craig Kimbrel won't be dealt

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 10:47:53 -0700

San Diego Padres RP Craig Kimbrel was claimed on revocable waivers by an unknown team, but the Padres have no intentions of trading him.

Fantasy Tip: Kimbrel is one of the best relievers in the game, but his 12.24 K/9 is the lowest of his career. He'll be 28 next season, so it's something to consider when drafting next season.

Padres | Derek Norris sitting against Nats

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 14:05:56 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Aug. 27. C Austin Hedges is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Washington Nationals SP Joe Ross Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Norris ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has really struggled this season, and he has been a major disappointment for fantasy owners. He carried a .233 batting average with a respectable 11 home runs and 45 RBI into the All-Star break, but he has emerged with just two home runs and nine RBI since. Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) owns a .197/.240/.283 slash line and is nothing more than a desperation play at FantasyScore Thursday.

Padres | No Jedd Gyorko vs. Washington

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 13:55:10 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Jedd Gyorko is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Aug. 27. 2B Spangenberg is starting at the keystone position and batting second against Washington Nationals SP Joe Ross Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Gyorko ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) in all fantasy formats Thursday. He is having a better second half with seven home runs and 23 RBI over his last 34 games. Owners in deep mixed leagues looking for help in those two categories could take a risk on Gyorko. Spangenberg ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is a potential low-priced flier for FantasyScore contests Thursday, but his upside is limited.

Padres | Matt Kemp sitting vs. Nats

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 13:48:12 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Matt Kemp is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Aug. 27. OF Travis Jankowski is playing right field and batting first against Washington Nationals SP Joe Ross Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Kemp ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) in all fantasy formats Thursday. The veteran has turned it on with seven home runs, 31 RBI and a .306/.366/.522 slash line over 36 games since the All-Star break. Jankowski ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is 5-for-13 to start his career, and hitting first in the lineup makes him a potential low-priced flier for FantasyScore players Thursday.

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 21:48:38 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Since the All-Star break, Ross ($7,900, 15.8% of cap) is 3-2 with a 3.59 ERA through eight starts. He will make his next appearance Monday, Aug. 31, against the Texas Rangers.

Padres | Justin Upton homers twice Wednesday

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 21:27:56 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Even after tonight's performance, Upton ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) is batting just .213 with seven home runs away from Petco Park this season. At home, he is hitting .306 with 15 home runs and 40 RBIs.

Padres | Wil Myers rehab update

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 20:57:02 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Wil Myers (wrist) hit in the batting cage Wednesday, Aug. 26, and could take live batting practice soon, according to interim manager Pat Murphy.

Fantasy Tip: If all goes well, Myers ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) could return to the San Diego lineup next month. He should continue to be stashed in deeper fantasy leagues.

Padres | Yonder Alonso out vs. lefty

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 14:15:45 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Yonder Alonso is not in the lineup against Washington Nationals left-handed SP Gio Gonzalez Wednesday, Aug. 26. C Derek Norris moves to first base, while C Austin Hedges is behind the plate and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Norris ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) isn't a bad FantasyScore click against the lefty tonight. He's hitting .289 (28-for-97) against southpaws this season. You should avoid Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap), who has really struggled at the plate all season in his rookie year.

Padres | Melvin Upton in two-hole

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 14:10:08 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Melvin Upton Jr. is starting in center field and hitting second against Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez Wednesday, Aug. 26. OF Travis Jankowski will start on the bench against a lefty.

Fantasy Tip: Upton ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) and Jankowski ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) are basically locked into a platoon in center field now, with Jankowski gaining the strong side of the platoon against righties. Both outfielders have plenty of speed but not much power, and Jankowski's upside is brighter for fantasy owners. Upton remains a low-end outfield option on FantasyScore against a lefty tonight. He's hitting just .217 (10-for-46) with two home runs against them this year.

Padres | Wil Myers taking grounders

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 11:43:56 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Wil Myers (wrist) still hasn't been cleared for batting practice, but he is taking ground balls at first base Wednesday, Aug. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Will Myers ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) ever return to the Friars lineup again this year? The Padres are holding out hope he'll return next month, but if you don't have the room on your shallow mixed roster, don't feel bad cutting him. He hasn't played since June 13, and he's unlikely to make much of a fantasy impact in any format with the regular season winding down.
