Fantasy Tip: Kemp ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) has been successful this season with a .266-17-85 line, and he is coming off a .304 batting average in August. As long as he is warming up like this, he makes for a strong FantasyScore option.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) had been in a 4-for-26 slump prior to this game. He's still a bit too streaky to rely on him every day in FantasyScore, even though his numbers (.261-11-53) are comparable to a year ago. He's best used against right-handers, so analyze his matchups daily.

San Diego Padres OF Wil Myers (wrist) is expected to spend most of his minor league rehab assignment playing center field, although he could also see action at first base and one of the corner outfield positions, according to assistant general manager Josh Stein. He began the rehab assignment at Class A Lake Elsinore Tuesday, Sept. 1, and could move to Class AA San Antonio within the next few days. It is uncertain whether Myers will join Class AAA El Paso after that.
Fantasy Tip: The Padres were hoping that Myers ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) could receive 30-40 at-bats during a rehab assignment in order to allow him to get his timing back at the plate. He should continue to be stashed in deeper fantasy leagues if you can afford the roster space.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson just hasn't been able to stay healthy; he hasn't exceeded 200 innings since 2009 with the then Florida Marlins. Yeah... he's not worth drafting next year until he proves he can remain in a starting rotation for a long period of time.

San Diego Padres OF Matt Kemp is hitting .150 in 20 career plate appearances against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Mat Latos. OF Justin Upton is hitting .500 against Latos with two home runs in 20 plate appearances, as well. The Padres face Latos and the Dodgers Thursday, Sept. 3.
Fantasy Tip: While Kemp's ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) numbers against Latos are iffy, he's not a bad FantasyScore pick tonight against the struggling pitcher, and Kemp has been one of the best run-producers in all of baseball since the All-Star break. Upton ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) is obviously attractive because of how he's owned Latos over the years.

Fantasy Tip: Norris ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) hasn't been nearly as consistent against right-handers this year as he has against southpaws, but he does has 11 of his 13 long balls against righties. He'll certainly be an under-the-radar catcher on FantasyScore against a pitcher that has been shaky with his new team.
Thu, 03 Sep 2015 16:03:31 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Wallace ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has hit righties well in limited at-bats this year (.395-3-9 in 38 at-bats). Still, he's more of a low-end first base option at Petco Park tonight.
Wed, 02 Sep 2015 15:36:20 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has only 18 hits in 99 at-bats this year (.182 average) with two home runs and 10 RBI. He's a very weak option on FantasyScore, especially against an elite pitcher like Hamels.
Wed, 02 Sep 2015 15:34:45 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Choosing Wallace ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) on FantasyScore is usually a sketchy proposition, let alone when he's facing a left-hander. Avoid him against Hamels this evening.
Wed, 02 Sep 2015 15:27:14 -0700
Fantasy Tip: While the leadoff spot is intriguing for Spangenberg's ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) daily outlook, a matchup against a tough lefty like Hamels is not. Spangenberg also has little power to take advantage of.
Tue, 01 Sep 2015 21:47:07 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Avoid Alonso ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) in FantasyScore until he can officially return and prove his health. Prospect Alex Dickerson might be on his way up from the minors to help out.
Mon, 31 Aug 2015 15:27:52 -0700
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.

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.

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.
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.
