San Diego Padres news, rumors and injuries
Sat, 04 Jul 2015 12:06:56 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Morrow ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) could begin a minor league rehab assignment not long after throwing a simulated game. He remains a candidate to be stashed in NL-only and deep mixed fantasy baseball leagues. FantasyScore owners should wait one or two starts after he is activated from the disabled list before considering him for their lineups.

Fantasy Tip: Entering play Saturday, Norris ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) was batting .238 with 11 homers and 45 RBIs. Even though his injury appears minor enough where he's able to play through it, FantasyScore owners should be aware that he is not at 100 percent.
Sat, 04 Jul 2015 10:23:20 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Upton ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) is only batting .175 through 40 at-bats this season and should be avoided in FantasyScore, despite hitting at the top of the batting order this afternoon.
Fri, 03 Jul 2015 20:30:11 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Despite the big game, Gyorko is still hitting just .216 with three homers in 50 games. After showing a ton of potential as a rookie, he continues to regress, and Gyorko isn't worth considering at FantasyScore right now.
Fri, 03 Jul 2015 20:23:56 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Upton ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) had been in a slight funk, but he is still on pace for 28 homers, 91 RBI and 32 steals. He won't come cheap, but Upton has the type of upside that can put a FantasyScore lineup over the top and into the money.
Fri, 03 Jul 2015 15:17:53 -0700
Fantasy Tip: With minimal pop potential, Alonso's ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) .310 batting average and .399 on-base percentage profile nicely atop the San Diego lineup. He is a low-end first base option in all formats, and he likely isn't worth targeting in FantasyScore contests Friday against Wacha.
Fri, 03 Jul 2015 14:34:54 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Scruggs ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is 10-for-25 to start the season, and he stands as a solid low-priced flier for FantasyScore contests Friday. However, you'll be passing up on a lot of talent and upside by utilizing him as your first basemen.
Thu, 02 Jul 2015 14:43:57 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Middlebrooks ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has a .221/.249/.383 slash line this season, and he is nothing more than a low-priced flier for FantasyScore players going forward. In seasonal formats, he should be left on waivers outside of cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues.
Thu, 02 Jul 2015 14:27:53 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Morrow ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) remains a stash candidate in cavernous mixed and NL-only formats, but FantayScore players will want to see Morrow prove himself on the mound before utilizing him in contests. Continue to check back for updates on Morrow's return timeline and progress.
Thu, 02 Jul 2015 13:44:40 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Gyorko ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has a .900 OPS, .179 ISO and .388 wOBA against southpaws this season, so if there was ever a time to take a speculative flier on him at FantasyScore, Thursday is the night. Still, he is a dice roll.
Thu, 02 Jul 2015 13:39:43 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Upton Jr. ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) sports a .147/.256/.294 slash line with a .251 wOBA this season, so FantasyScore players should view him as nothing more than a high-risk flier. Upton Jr. is a desperation source of stolen bases in deep seasonal leagues. Batting leadoff does increase his value, though.
Thu, 02 Jul 2015 13:26:20 -0700
San Diego Padres 1B Yonder Alonso is not in the starting lineup Thursday, July 2. C Austin Hedges draws into the lineup behind the plate with C Derek Norris playing first base. Norris is batting second, and Hedges is batting seventh against St. Louis Cardinals SP Tim Cooney Thursday.
Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Alonso ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) in all fantasy formats Thursday. He is having one of the best runs of his career and sports a respectable .310/.396/.402 slash line this season. Just don't count on much help in the home run or stolen base columns. Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has a .305 OPS this season, so FantasyScore players should look elsewhere. Norris ($4,800, 9.6% of cap), on the other hand, has a career .374 wOBA and .857 OPS against southpaws and is an excellent option for daily players Thursday.
Thu, 02 Jul 2015 13:16:16 -0700
Fantasy Tip: 24-year-old Cooney is making his major league debut, so boosting up Kemp's ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) value Thursday isn't out of the question. Still, Kemp has an underwhelming .645 OPS which is low relative to his cap hit. He had been batting leadoff the past seven games, and the move to the three-hole should be viewed as a positive for his fantasy value.

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.
Tue, 30 Jun 2015 17:56:39 -0700
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.
