Padres | Matt Kemp breaks slump

Tue, 26 May 2015 23:45:52 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Matt Kemp, who was mired in a 16-for-91 slump this month, had a three-run double in the 10th inning Tuesday, May 26. The Padres beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 4-0.

Fantasy Tip: Kemp ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) could have some more success as the month continues, thanks to one dramatic hit. Keep an eye on his progress and don't be afraid to use him if he shows more signs of snapping out of it.

Padres | Wil Myers improving, no timeline

Tue, 26 May 2015 17:16:51 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Wil Myers (wrist) underwent a scan Tuesay, May 26, in which his left wrist showed tendon improvement. Myers is still sore and he remains without a timetable to resume hitting.

Fantasy Tip: Myers ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) should remain owned in all leagues, but owners are right to be growing impatient. With the scans showing improvements, it will soon be about whether Myers can play through the pain.

Padres | Jedd Gyorko in as DH

Tue, 26 May 2015 16:53:37 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Jedd Gyorko will serves as the designated hitter and hit eighth in the lineup Tuesday, May 26, against the Los Angeles Angels.

Fantasy Tip: Gyorko ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is hitless in his last 13 at-bats, and he shouldn't be considered on FantasyScore.

Padres | Brandon Morrow to throw simulated game

Mon, 25 May 2015 18:17:30 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Brandon Morrow (shoulder) will throw a simulated game Thursday, May 28. Morrow was encouraged after throwing a 42-pitch bullpen session Sunday, May 24.

Fantasy Tip: Morrow ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) should be stashed in NL-only leagues and even very deep mixed leagues. Morrow had a 2.73 ERA through five starts before going on the disabled list, and even his 3.64 xFIP would make him worthy of a roster spot.

Padres | Josh Johnson stops throwing

Mon, 25 May 2015 18:16:41 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Josh Johnson (neck) had to stop throwing because of a "nerve situation" in his neck, according to manager Bud Black. Johnson is working his way back from Tommy John surgery, and he also reported tightness in his triceps after throwing a simulated game April 28.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson is quickly becoming irrelevant in fantasy circles. There's no reason to be stashing Johnson in any type of league at this point.

Padres | Yonder Alonso going through activities

Mon, 25 May 2015 17:46:23 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Yonder Alonso (shoulder) will go through full baseball activities Monday, May 25, and Tuesday, May 26. The activities will include pregame ground balls and batting practice on the field. Alonso will start a rehab assignment Wednesday, May 27, at Class High-A Lake Elsinore.

Fantasy Tip: Alonso ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) can be stashed by owners in NL-only leagues, but he won't have much value in mixed leagues until he proves himself upon a return.

Padres | Wil Myers still without timetable

Mon, 25 May 2015 17:45:35 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Wil Myers (wrist) will return to San Diego Tuesday, May 26, to undergo a new scan on his injured left wrist. The scan will also check the rate of healing with the tendinitis in Myers wrist, according to manager Bud Black.

Fantasy Tip: Myers ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) is technically eligible to be activated Tuesday, but he is yet to resume swinging. Season-long owners will need to check back for the results of the scan.

Padres | Abraham Almonte in lineup

Mon, 25 May 2015 15:09:25 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Abraham Almonte will start in right field and bat eighth in the order Monday, May 25, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. OF Matt Kemp will serve as the designated hitter in the American League park.

Fantasy Tip: Almonte ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) is just 2-for-his-last 13 at-bats, spanning seven games. A switch-hitter, Almonte fairs much worse against right-handed pitchers. FantasyScore owners will need to look elsewhere for a bargain play.

Padres | Will Venable hitting second

Mon, 25 May 2015 15:08:17 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Will Venable will hit second in the order and start in center field Monday, May 25, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. 2B Cory Spangenberg will bat sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Venable ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) will have an advantage as a left-handed hitter going up against RHP Jered Weaver of the Angels. Venable has two multi-hit games in his last three outings, going a cumulative 6-for-13 at the plate. Venable will be an under-used GPP player with a .303 average against righties.

Padres | Big night for Justin Upton

Sun, 24 May 2015 20:40:07 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton went 2-for-4 with a grand slam, six RBIs and two runs scored in an 11-3 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers Sunday, May 24.

Fantasy Tip: After three quiet games, Upton ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) was back to driving in runs Sunday. He has 12 homers and 35 RBIs on the year, and he makes a strong option at FantasyScore, especially against right-handed pitching.

Padres | Justin Upton finding Petco paradise

Sun, 24 May 2015 13:40:26 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton has hit nine of his 11 home runs in Petco Park.

Fantasy Tip: So much for Upton ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) losing his power with a move to San Diego. Because he has hit so many of his home runs at home, you may want to configure your lineup so that Upton starts during a homestand.

Padres | Alexi Amarista playing Sunday

Sun, 24 May 2015 12:34:02 -0700

San Diego Padres SS Alexi Amarista is in the starting lineup against the Los Angeles Dodgers Sunday, May 24, batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Amarista ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is batting .160 during the month of May and .186 overall this season. Avoid using him in FantasyScore today.

Padres | Cory Spangenberg playing second

Sun, 24 May 2015 12:31:41 -0700

San Diego Padres INF Cory Spangenberg is starting at second base and batting sixth against the Los Angeles Dodgers Sunday, May 24. 2B Jedd Gyorko is not in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Spangenberg ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) carries a 1-for-19 slump into this afternoon's contest. Better options can be had in FantasyScore for a comparable price.

Padres | Ian Kennedy loses third straight

Sun, 24 May 2015 05:50:09 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Ian Kennedy lost for the third consecutive start Saturday, May 23, against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Kennedy held the Dodgers to two runs off six hits and zero walks through six innings, but he didn't get any run support. Kennedy struck out six hitters.

Fantasy Tip: Kennedy ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) rebounded from rough starts in his last two outings, in which he allowed a combined 11 earned runs. Kennedy's strikeout rates have risen since his first two appearances of the season, and he can be considered for GPP tournaments Thursday, April 28, against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Padres | Josh Johnson moved to 60-day DL

Sun, 24 May 2015 05:45:50 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Josh Johnson (elbow) was moved from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day DL Saturday, May 23. Johnson continues to recover from Tommy John surgery.

Fantasy Tip: Once an elite strikeout pitcher, Johnson's career has been derailed by a plethora of injuries. FantasyScore owners will need to allow for a few starts after an eventual return to the major leagues in order to judge what Johnson has left in the tank.
