Padres | Jedd Gyorko in lineup

Sat, 23 May 2015 16:01:21 -0700

San Deigo Padres 2B Jedd Gyorko will start at second base and bat fifth in the order Saturday, May 23, against the Los Angeles Dodgers. 3B Will Middlebrooks will make his first career start at shortstop, while SS Alexi Amarista has the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Gyorko ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is drawing a rare start against a right-handed pitcher. Hitting just .157 off righties this season, Gyorko can be avoided on FantasyScore.

Padres | Derek Norris off Saturday

Sat, 23 May 2015 16:00:48 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris has the day off Saturday, May 23, against the Los Angeles Dodgers. C Austin Hedges will start behind the plate and bat eighth in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) doesn't require much consideration on FantasyScore due to his position in the order. Hedges has just two major league hits this season, and he is yet to draw a walk.

Padres | Andrew Cashner gives up unearned run

Sat, 23 May 2015 00:18:15 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner gave up an unearned run Friday, May 22, against the Los Angeles Dodgers. His 12 unearned runs lead the major leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Cashner ($7,300, 14.6% of cap) has pitched very well, and this statistic suggests some of the runs he has given up have not been Cashner's fault. He is still worth starting.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte leading off

Fri, 22 May 2015 15:13:54 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Yangervis Solarte is starting at first base and batting leadoff against the Los Angeles Dodgers Friday, May 22.

Fantasy Tip: While typically Solarte ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) leading off would make him a plus-option, opposing pitcher Zack Greinke has been stingy. Plus, Solarte is just 6-for-30 with a .506 OPS dating back to Sunday, May 10. FantasyScore players should view Solarte as a contrarian flier Friday.

Padres | Cory Spangenberg back in leadoff spot

Thu, 21 May 2015 14:33:33 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Cory Spangenberg is starting at second base and hitting leadoff against Chicago Cubs SP Kyle Hendricks Thursday, May 21. 2B Jedd Gyorko will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Spangenberg ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is only hitting .233 (17-for-73) with two home runs and four stolen bases on the year. He's not a power hitter at all, but he can make things happen with his legs. Consider him a midrange second base option at FantasyScore while he continues to lead off.

Padres | Matt Kemp mired in bad slump

Thu, 21 May 2015 10:04:28 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Matt Kemp is 12-for-69 in the month of May after hitting .326 in April. He stranded six base runners in the team's loss Wednesday, May 20. On the season, Kemp is hitting only .259 with one home run, and his .649 OPS is lower than SS Clint Barmes'.

Fantasy Tip: Right now, Kemp ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) is doing nothing to justify his FantasyScore price. Until he shows signs of life and busts out of his ugly funk, you should stay away from him.

Padres | Brandon Morrow to throw

Wed, 20 May 2015 17:18:16 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Brandon Morrow (shoulder) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Thursday, May 21.

Fantasy Tip: Morrow ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) is working his way back from his shoulder injury but likely will need at least one rehab start before returning. Owners on FantasyScore should avoid Morrow until he is able to make at least one start for the Padres.

Padres | Alexi Amarista out vs. lefty

Wed, 20 May 2015 15:47:31 -0700

San Diego Padres SS Alexi Amarista is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 20. SS Clint Barmes is starting at shortstop and hitting eighth in the batting order against Chicago Cubs SP Tsuyoshi Wada.

Fantasy Tip: Barmes' ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) .185 average (5-for-27) against left-handed pitchers this year says to avoid him at FantasyScore tonight.

Padres | Jedd Gyorko at 2B Wednesday

Wed, 20 May 2015 15:44:13 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Jedd Gyorko draws the start at second base and is hitting sixth in the batting order against Chicago Cubs SP Tsuyoshi Wada Wednesday, May 20. 2B Cory Spangenberg is sitting out against a lefty pitcher.

Fantasy Tip: Gyorko ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) will be ignored by most at FantasyScore, because he's hitting just .217 (20-for-92) with two home runs and nine RBI this year. However, he has a slash line of .375/.500/.667 with a home run against southpaws, and Wada will be making his first start of the year Wednesday. Gyorko is a cheap sleeper candidate that could return some huge value.

Padres | Yonder Alonso not close to return

Tue, 19 May 2015 16:41:52 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Yonder Alonso (shoulder) is "still a ways away" from a return, according to manager Bud Black Tuesday, May 19. Alonso's rotator cuff muscle is preventing him from participating in any baseball activities.

Fantasy Tip: Alonso ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) owned a batting average of .333 and an on-base percentage of .427 before being sidelined. Alonso has been regularly sidelined by injuries over the last couple seasons, but when he is healthy, he could have 10 home run, 10 stolen base potential.

Padres | Cory Spangenberg continues to lead off

Tue, 19 May 2015 16:36:04 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Cory Spangenberg is starting at third base and hitting leadoff against Chicago Cubs SP Jason Hammel Tuesday, May 19. 3B Will Middlebrooks will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: With Wil Myers (wrist) on the DL, expect Spangenberg ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) to continue to lead off for the Friars. He doesn't boast much power at all, but he has 20-stolen base potential over a full season. Remember, stolen bases are worth two points at FantasyScore. His spot atop the lineup on an everyday basis should make him at least worth a consideration as a cheaper second base play on a daily basis.

Padres | Wil Myers lands on DL

Tue, 19 May 2015 15:29:09 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Wil Myers (wrist) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, May 19, with left wrist tendinitis. The DL move is retroactive to May 11. RP Cory Mazzoni was recalled from Class AAA El Paso (Texas) in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Myers' wrist injury wasn't thought to be all that serious, there's a realistic chance that he'll be ready to go when he's eligible to be activated. In his absence, the Padres will go with some combination of Will Venable ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) and Abraham Almonte ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) in center field. Neither player is very intriguing for FantasyScore players, but Venable offers more speed and offensive upside for your money.

Padres | Melvin Upton begins rehab assignment

Mon, 18 May 2015 15:17:58 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Melvin Upton Jr. (foot) is beginning his 20-game rehab stint with Class AAA El Paso (Texas) Monday, May 18.

Fantasy Tip: Upton ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) projects as a reserve outfielder, so his seasonal value is tied to NL-only and cavernous mixed leagues. Even there, he is nothing more than a desperation flier. In FantasyScore contests, he slots in as a high-risk, low-investment flier when in the lineup.

Padres | Justin Upton hits pair of homers

Mon, 18 May 2015 04:16:15 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton hit two home runs Sunday, May 17, against the Washington Nationals to raise his season total to 10.

Fantasy Tip: Upton ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) had a .277-8-29 line entering the game, and he appears to have adjusted to his new surroundings quite nicely. Upton did have 29 homers last year while with the Atlanta Braves, but changing teams and going to pitcher-friendly Petco Park can stifle homer totals. Upton is a great start in daily leagues as long as he keeps up this pace.

Padres | Wil Myers remains sidelined

Sun, 17 May 2015 11:32:25 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Wil Myers (wrist) remains out of the lineup Sunday, May 17, against the Washington Nationals. OF Abraham Almonte will play center field and bat second.

Fantasy Tip: Myers ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) is a possibility to return to the starting lineup in the next few days. Almonte ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) provides salary cap relief in FantasyScore but not much else.
