San Diego Padres 3B Will Middlebrooks (ankle) is sitting out his second straight game Wednesday, July 1. 2B Yangervis Solarte will start at the hot corner again and is hitting fifth against Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker.
Fantasy Tip: Solarte ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) recorded the team's only hit last night, but he has come back down to earth after a hot start to the season and hit only .206 (13-for-63) with no home runs and four RBI in June. He's one to avoid against the hot Walker.

San Diego Padres OF Melvin Upton Jr. will start in center field and hit seventh in the order Tuesday, June 30, against the Seattle Mariners and LHP Mike Montgomery. OF Will Venable comes out of the lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Upton Jr. ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) has just one hit in 18 plate appearances against lefties this season, providing FantasyScore owners with yet another reason to ignore him.

San Diego Padres 2B Cory Spangenberg (knee) was put on the 15-day disabled list with a left knee contusion Tuesday, June 30. The DL move is retroactive to June 28. 2B Jedd Gyorko was recalled from Class AAA El Paso in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Spangenberg can probably be dropped if he was on your roster in shallow mixed leagues. Hang onto him elsewhere. Some combination of Yangervis Solarte ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) and Gyorko will likely split time at the keystone. However, Solarte has cooled off considerably since earlier in the season and Gyorko has continued to disappoint. Solarte is the more attractive fantasy option in deeper mixed leagues, but Gyorko could provide more power if he sees enough playing time.

Fantasy Tip: Give Gyorko a few games to prove he can be efficient again at this big-league level before trusting him again for FantasyScore purposes.

Fantasy Tip: Kemp ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) was hitting just .192 in the 13 games before the move, so at the very least, it has woken him up a bit. He could be worth taking a chance on at FantasyScore in his new role.
Sun, 28 Jun 2015 20:29:08 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Middlebrooks ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) status going forward is unclear, but he is a fringe option at best at FantasyScore anyway.
Sun, 28 Jun 2015 12:50:16 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Solarte ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is starting at the keystone position because INF Cory Spangenberg (knee) is sidelined due to a sprained left knee. He is 2-for-8 against Anderson in his career and is worthy of consideration in FantasyScore because he is faring much better against righties.
Sun, 28 Jun 2015 12:47:57 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Middlebrooks ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) is 1-for-3 against Anderson in his career but he is only batting .194 this month and .083 against Arizona this season, so he should be avoided in FantasyScore.
Sun, 28 Jun 2015 12:45:50 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Barmes ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is batting .348 this month and is hitting .375 against Arizona pitching this season, making him one of the better sources of productive cap relief available in FantasyScore this afternoon.

San Diego Padres 2B Cory Spangenberg (knee) left the game Saturday, June 27, against the Arizona Diamondbacks in the fourth inning due to a sprained left knee. 2B Yangervis Solarte would be in line for increased playing time if Spangenberg is forced to miss time.
Fantasy Tip: Solarte ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) went 5-for-7 in his last two games. He'll be worth FantasyScore consideration against right-handed pitching, as he's hitting .267 for the season, with both of his home runs coming from the left-hand side of the plate.
Sun, 28 Jun 2015 05:09:05 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Upton ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) extended his hitting streak to six games, with a total of eight hits in that span. Strikeouts are an issue for Upton, but he does have the upside to compensate.
Sun, 28 Jun 2015 05:08:02 -0700
Fantasy Tip: It was Cashner's ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) first win since May 27, and he had piled up an ERA of 7.62 over his previous five starts. FantasyScore owners will want to see a few more starts like this before investing in Cashner. He should be avoided when he takes the mound Friday, July 3, in St. Louis.
Sat, 27 Jun 2015 04:56:52 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Ross ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) is a pitcher to consider for your FantasyScore lineups as long as he is putting up solid results like this.
Fri, 26 Jun 2015 17:01:39 -0700
Fantasy Tip: This could be the final step before Morrow ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) begins a minor league rehab assignment. He should be stashed in NL-only and deep mixed fantasy leagues but FantasyScore owners should avoid using him in his first start or two immediately after he's activated from the disabled list.
Fri, 26 Jun 2015 15:48:47 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Norris ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) has done solid work in the counting stat department with 38 runs, nine home runs and 41 RBI. However, seasonal owners would love to see a little improvement to his .246 batting average and .294 on-base percentage. Regarding his weight loss, Norris's statistics have progressively dwindled monthly. Though, there may not be any correlation to his playing weight. Facing a left-handed hurler Friday, Norris is a high-end catcher option at FantasyScore.
