Padres | Andrew Cashner stays consistent

Sat, 25 Apr 2015 00:31:52 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner has thrown 20 straight home starts where he has allowed two earned runs or less.

Fantasy Tip: Cashner ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) has been a solid pitcher this season, and this is something to keep in mind when he makes home starts. The Petco Park pitching advantage makes Cashner stronger.

Padres | Cory Spangenberg starting again

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 15:11:57 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Cory Spangenberg is starting at second base again and hitting second in the batting order against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Zack Greinke Friday, April 24. 2B Jedd Gyorko remains on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Spangenberg ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a scrappy hitter for the Padres at the top of a potent batting lineup. However, he should be considered a low-end keystone start tonight at FantasyScore against Greinke, who has owned the Padres in his career.

Padres | Justin Upton should be fine in park

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 08:38:01 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton hit 29 home runs in 2014, and all would have left the spacious confines of Petco Park, according to a study that was done. The Padres view him as a one-year rental, but that could change as the season progresses.

Fantasy Tip: Upton has a .288-3-8 line in his first 59 at-bats. Two of those homers were at PETCO. At $4,900 (9.8% of your cap), you can use him with confidence on FantasyScore despite his park factors.

Padres | Derek Norris taking day off

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 10:18:57 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris is receiving the day off Thursday, April 23. C Wil Nieves is starting behind the plate and hitting eighth in the batting order against Colorado Rockies SP Jordan Lyles.

Fantasy Tip: Nieves ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a dice roll at FantasyScore as a low-end catching option Thursday, even at hitter-friendly Coors Field. His one hit in seven at-bats this year was a grand slam.

Padres | No Justin Upton Thursday

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 10:15:14 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton is not in the starting lineup Thursday, April 23. OF Will Venable receives the start in left field and is hitting sixth in the batting order against Colorado Rockies SP Jordan Lyles.

Fantasy Tip: Venable ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a low-end outfield option at FantasyScore today, but he does have two home runs this season and has speed to boot. He has one home run in nine career at-bats against Lyles, for what it's worth.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte hitting cleanup

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 10:12:00 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Yangervis Solarte is starting at third base and hitting cleanup against Colorado Rockies SP Jordan Lyles Thursday, April 23. 3B Will Middlebrooks is taking the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is a very attractive flyer at FantasyScore today in the hear of the San Diego order. The switch hitter is off to a fast start to the season in a utility role, and he hit his second home run of the season last night in a loss. Definitely consider him if you're looking to save money elsewhere.

Padres | Will Middlebrooks resting

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 10:07:56 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Will Middlebrooks is not in the starting lineup against the Colorado Rockies Thursday, April 23.

Fantasy Tip: Yangervis Solarte ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) draws the start at third base. The switch hitter homered last night to give him two homers on the season and a .343 (12-for-35) batting average in the early going. Stick with him at a cheap price on FantasyScore, especially while he's hitting cleanup today.

Padres | Cory Spangenberg draws start

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 10:01:43 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Cory Spangenberg is starting at second base and hitting second in the batting order against Colorado Rockies SP Jordan Lyles Thursday, April 23. 2B Jedd Gyorko is sitting the bench yet again.

Fantasy Tip: Gyorko ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is quickly losing playing time to Spangenberg and Yangervis Solarte after another slow start (.163-0-3). At this point, it's not worth holding him in shallow mixed leagues. Spangenberg is a pesky lefty stick that has some appeal at FantasyScore at the top of the Friars lineup in a hitter's park. He's 3-for-12 on the year and is worth a low-priced flyer today against Lyles.

Padres | Ian Kennedy to start Saturday

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 09:53:33 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Ian Kennedy (hamstring) will come off the disabled list to start against the Los Angeles Dodgers Saturday, April 25.

Fantasy Tip: Kennedy ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) wasn't dealing with a serious hamstring ailment, so he should be good to use for FantasyScore users Saturday. However, you may want to avoid him in his first start back against one of the better overall teams in the league. Odrisamer Despaigne ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) will move back to a long relief role out of the bullpen, and that kills his short-term fantasy appeal in standard leagues.

Padres | Jedd Gyorko on the bench

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 14:13:32 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Jedd Gyorko is not in the starting lineup against the Colorado Rockies Wednesday, April 22.

Fantasy Tip: Gyorko ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is one of the few San Diego regulars in a rut in the season's first month. If he continues to struggle, he could lose more playing time to Yangervis Solarte ($2,000, 4.0% of cap), who is replacing him at the keystone Wednesday. Solarte is a fine value play at FantasyScore this evening.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte hitting second Wednesday

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 14:11:07 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Yangervis Solarte is starting at second base and hitting second in the batting order against Colorado Rockies SP Kyle Kendrick Wednesday, April 22.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has been a spark plug for the Padres in the early going, hitting .355 (11-for-31) with one home run and eight RBI. He's a versatile player, too, and hitting atop the Friars' hot lineup makes him very relevant while facing Kendrick in hitter-friendly Coors Field. He should be a solid daily play tonight at a great price.

Padres | Justin Upton back in action

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 18:56:49 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton (quadriceps) returned to the lineup Tuesday, April 21, against the Colorado Rockies.

Fantasy Tip: Upton returned to action, then left early, Monday. However, due to the lopsided nature of the score it appears it was simply a precautionary measure to keep him healthy. FantasyScore owners can feel confident using him at $4,900 (or 9.8% of cap).

Padres | Matt Kemp stays hot Monday

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 21:31:07 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Matt Kemp had three hits and drove in four runs in the team's shellacking of the Colorado Rockies Monday, April 20.

Fantasy Tip: Kemp ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) is off to a great start with his new club in 2015, going 21-for-57 (.368) with one home run and 13 RBI. He makes for another great play at FantasyScore this evening against Rockies lefty starter Tyler Matzek.

Padres | Ian Kennedy looks good

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 20:31:16 -0700

Updating a previous report, San Diego Padres SP Ian Kennedy (hamstring) threw 81 pitches over six innings in an extended spring training appearance Monday, April 20. Manager Bud Black was happy with the result. "He looked good, (threw) all his pitches," Black said. "He had a few strikeouts. They nicked him for a couple of runs, but overall he's throwing the ball good, no issues with the hamstring."

Fantasy Tip: Kennedy is eligible to come off the 15-day disabled list April 25. FantasyScore owners will want to wait to see him officially return and pitch a full game without any setbacks before trusting him at $5,600 (or 11.2% of the cap).

Padres | Justin Upton leaves game

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 20:30:37 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton (quadriceps) left the game Monday, April 20, against the Colorado Rockies in the middle of the fourth inning after three at-bats. He had been nursing a strained left quadriceps, and might have simply been lifted due to the lopsided score of the game.

Fantasy Tip: All indications are that Uptonís removal from the game was precautionary, but this is one of those instances where FantasyScore owners need to be careful and wait to see a guy make it through a full game before trusting him in the lineup after an injury.
