San Diego Padres OF Matt Kemp is not in the starting lineup Sunday, June 26. INF Ryan Schimpf draws into the lineup at the keystone at is batting sixth against Cincinnati Reds SP Anthony DeSclafani Sunday.
Fantasy Tip: Kemp is quietly having a huge season and sits with 16 home runs and 53 RBI already. He isn't stealing bases this season, but as far as middle-round picks go, he's been a gem thus far. Remember, too, Kemp has a history of heating up in the second half. Schimpf owns a .130/.300/.217 slash line through his 30 plate appearances this season and cannot be started with confidence in any fantasy formats Sunday.

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 17:50:03 -0700
Fantasy Tip: With 102 strikeouts in 88 innings and a 2.76 ERA, Pomeranz should be owned in all formats at this point.

San Diego Padres OF Jon Jay (forearm) is not in the starting lineup against Cincinnati Reds SP Brandon Finnegan Saturday, June 25. OF Travis Jankowski will start in center field and is batting first in the lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Jankowski is hitting .263 with two RBI over the last seven days and should continue to start as long as Jay is sidelined. He could be a sleeper option in some daily fantasy leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Travis Jankowski should continue to start in place of Jay, and he makes a decent DFS flier as long as he occupies the leadoff spot.

Fantasy Tip: Upton has been streaky this year, but with six multi-hit efforts in his last nine games, it is a good time to take a chance on him in DFS formats.

San Diego Padres 1B Wil Myers went 3-for-5 with a double, a home run, five RBI and two runs scored in a 13-4 win over the Cincinnati Reds Friday, June 24, and he is hitting .349 with 10 home runs and 28 RBI in 22 games this month.
Fantasy Tip: Myers has emerged as a must-own option in mixed leagues this year, and should be a staple of DFS lineups during his current hot streak.
Fri, 24 Jun 2016 10:30:04 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Jankowski is hitting .296 in 27 June at-bats. He's facing lefty Cody Reed, but he still has some upside in the leadoff spot.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson has posted an ERA of 8.54 through five starts this season between the White Sox and the Padres and has allowed 12 home runs over 26 1/3 innings. The 26-year-old right-hander is not a recommended option in any fantasy format.

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 22. C Christian Bethancourt is starting behind the plate and batting seventh against Baltimore Orioles SP Ubaldo Jimenez Wednesday.
Fantasy Tip: Norris is a fringe starter in the majority of seasonal leagues with 29 runs, nine home runs and 22 RBI for the season. Bethancourt is hot recently with an active 5-for-14 stretch at the dish, so he checks out as a low-priced flier for daily contests Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Perdomo has allowed six earned runs in three of his last five appearances, none of which lasted longer than five innings. He's only in the rotation because of injuries and doesn't deserve consideration even in NL-only setups.
Tue, 21 Jun 2016 21:26:17 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Rodney went 26 1/3 innings without allowing an earned run before the A's scored with two down in the ninth to cut the lead to 10-7. Rodney came on in the eighth when it was 7-6, however, so he still got his 15th save in 15 chances. There's a good chance San Diego will move him before the deadline, and he could slot into a setup role in that scenario. Don't hesitate to pull the trigger on a deal of your own if the offer is reasonable.

Fantasy Tip: With four hits today, Kemp now has 10 games with two or more hits this month and six in his last 10. He's hitting .364 (28-for-77) in June, raising his seasonal average nearly 30 points in the process, and while his dip in power (two HRs) is a bummer, he has remained productive in driving runners in (16 RBI). Find a spot for Kemp in your everyday lineup.

San Diego Padres SP Tyson Ross (shoulder) and SP Andrew Cashner (neck) threw bullpen sessions Tuesday, June 21. Ross is not expected to be activated from the 15-day disabled list until after the All-Star break, while Cashner may not be ready when he is first eligible to be activated.
Fantasy Tip: It appears that Cashner is closer to returning than Ross, but both are probably a few weeks away from pitching for the Padres again. Owners should continue to hold onto them if they have to roster space.

San Diego Padres OF Jon Jay (forearm) is considered day-to-day because of a forearm bruise and will be reevaluated Wednesday, June 22, according to manager Andy Green. Jay underwent X-rays on his forearm, but they came back negative.
Fantasy Tip: It appears that Jay probably will only miss a few days because of the injury, but owners should monitor the situation. Travis Jankowski probably will be in the lineup while Jay is sidelined but is not a strong fantasy option.
