Padres | Big day for Derek Norris

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 18:46:33 -0700

San Diego Padres went 5-for-5 with a grand slam, four RBI and two runs scored in an 8-7 win over the New York Mets Thursday, July 30.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the big game, Norris ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) has seen his batting average steadily slip since a solid April, and he is hitting below .200 over the past two months. Unless he strings together a few more big performances, you can continue to avoid him at FantasyScore.

Padres | Justin Upton comes up big

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 18:31:45 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton went 1-for-5 with a go-ahead, three-run home run in an 8-7 win over the New York Mets Thursday, July 30.

Fantasy Tip: Upton ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) has three home runs and seven RBI in his last four games, but for the price, he remains a high-risk, high-reward play at FantasyScore.

Padres | Ian Kennedy, Will Venable all but dealt

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 14:43:17 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Ian Kennedy and OF Will Venable are considered all but traded, as the Padres are expected to make a number of moves before the trade deadline Friday, July 31, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Kennedy ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) will likely be dealt to a contender, and he has the upside to return handsomely through the end of the season, especially if he lands in the right situation. After all, Kennedy has six wins, 52 strikeouts with a 2.83 ERA trhough 57 1/3 innings over his past 10 starts. Venable ($3,900, 7.8% of cap), on the other hand, projects to be a platoon player -- at best -- in his new digs. His value is likely to decline alongside his at-bats.

Padres | Brandon Morrow with another setback

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 09:33:33 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Brandon Morrow (shoulder) won't make his next scheduled rehab start because of shoulder soreness. He is headed to San Diego to visit with a team doctor.

Fantasy Tip: Morrow made just five starts for the Friars before going on the DL this season, and he hasn't pitched in the majors since. Another setback could mean we won't see him at least until September, if at all. There's little chance that Morrow contributes significantly for the Padres or fantasy owners in 2015.

Padres | Yonder Alonso sitting out

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 07:23:36 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Yonder Alonso is out of the lineup Thursday, July 30, with C Derek Norris filling in at first base.

Fantasy Tip: Norris ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is hitting second against left-hander Jon Niese. He's hitting just .154 this month and hasn't overwhelmed against lefties with a .257-1-5 clip. He's not a good option on FantasyScore today.

Padres | SD asking about Javier Baez

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 12:10:51 -0700

Chicago Cubs 2B Javier Baez has received a trade inquiry from the San Diego Padres, who are looking for infielders and lefty bats. SP Andrew Cashner could fit the Cubs in a potential deal, and Cashner was previously with Chicago before being traded to the Padres in the deal that included 1B Anthony Rizzo. SP Tyson Ross is also a popular trade target.

Fantasy Tip: Baez has had a rough year after losing out on a roster spot out of spring training with the Cubs. He also has dealt with injuries and a death in the family, but he has rebounded to hit .325/.399/.567 with 10 home runs and 32 RBI in two minor league stops. Baez still has plenty of upside, especially in the power department for a middle infielder. A move to pitcher-friendly Petco Park would likely make him a little less attractive for speculative owners in all leagues.

Padres | Justin Upton not helping trade value

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 11:31:22 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton has a .455 OPS in the month of July after sporting a .608 OPS in June.

Fantasy Tip: Upton ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) isn't endearing himself to interested parties as the trade deadline approaches. He's hitting .145 (8-for-55) with two home runs and only four RBI. Although he's hitting better at pitcher-friendly Petco Park this year, a move to a new venue would likely boost his fantasy value for the remainder of 2015.

Padres | Wil Myers receiving therapy

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 13:54:34 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Wil Myers (wrist) is dealing with expected soreness in his wrist. He'll continue doing therapy and won't swing a bat for the next five to six days before being re-evaluated.

Fantasy Tip: Continue stashing Myers ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) in all formats. He's expected to immediately return to the leadoff role for the Padres when he's healthy and off the DL.

Padres | James Shields could be hard to trade

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 09:05:37 -0700

San Diego Padres SP James Shields might go unclaimed on trade waivers because he has three years and $65 million left on his current contract.

Fantasy Tip: It seems like the Padres are more likely to trade Andrew Cashner or Tyson Ross at the deadline than Shields ($7,400, 14.8% of cap). The wins have been hard to come by for Shields of late, but he remains a solid fantasy pitcher with an elite 10.2 K/9 rate.

Padres | Friars discussing Starlin Castro

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 15:31:50 -0700

Chicago Cubs SS Starlin Castro has been discussed by the San Diego Padres, according to sources. The Cubs are inquiring about the Padres' starting pitchers.

Fantasy Tip: Castro ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) has faded quickly and is hitting .139 (11-for-79) with no home runs and five RBI in July to drop his season average to .233. A move to pitching-friendly Petco Park would only further drop his fantasy value moving forward. If Castro were to be traded, it would allow the Cubbies to move Addison Russell to shortstop - his natural position - and create room for Javier Baez at second base.

Padres | Wil Myers to have wrist examined

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 12:34:20 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Wil Myers (wrist) is scheduled to have his wrist examined Monday, July 27, after he experienced some soreness in his wrist this past weekend. Myers felt good after swinging a bat Friday, July 24, but experienced the soreness after swinging Saturday, July 25.

Fantasy Tip: Myers ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) does not have a timetable for his return and could be out longer if the soreness lingers. Owners should continue to watch his progress over the next few days to receive a better idea of his status.

Padres | Jedd Gyorko being shopped

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 08:19:04 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Jedd Gyorko is being shopped heavily by the team, according to sources. Gyorko is owed $32 million from 2016-19 with a $1 million buyout.

Fantasy Tip: Gyorko ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has a .215-5-18 and has really fallen off a cliff since his 23-homer rookie season in 2013. Pass on FantasyScore until he shows signs of life.

Padres | Justin Upton ends drought

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 16:39:09 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in a 3-2 win over the Miami Marlins Sunday, July 26, recording his first multi-hit effort since June 27.

Fantasy Tip: It has been a rough month of July for Upton ($6,000, 12.0% of cap), and he is hitting just .154 with four RBI. He still has plenty of upside thanks to his combination of power and speed, but he is struggling too much right now to justify his price tag at FantasyScore.

Padres | Alexi Amarista starting Sunday

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 12:59:40 -0700

San Diego Padres SS Alexi Amarista is batting eighth against Miami Marlins SP Mat Latos Sunday, July 26. SS Clint Barmes is receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Amarista ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) only has five hits in 28 at-bats this month and is 1-for-8 versus Latos in his career. You can find better middle infield options in FantasyScore.

Padres | Brett Wallace hits solo shot

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 05:17:35 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Brett Wallace went 2-for-3 with a solo home run during San Diego's 3-1 win over the Miami Marlins Friday, July 24.

Fantasy Tip: Wallace ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) sits at 9-for-28 with two doubles and a home run for the season, and if he can maintain some consistency at the dish, there is an outside shot for semi-regular at-bats. The Padres' lineup could look extremely different next week, so NL-only owners could have a nice find. FantasyScore players should view Wallace as a low-end source of cap relief at his point.
