San Diego Padres OF Carlos Quentin (knee) is likely to be put on the disabled list Friday, Aug. 9.
Fantasy Tip: With Quentin out, Jesus Guzman should continue to see consistent playing in left field. Guzman is worth owning in cavernous mixed leagues with extra outfield slots.

San Diego Padres manager Bud Black said there's a good chance 1B Yonder Alonso (hand) will return to the big club Friday, July 12.
Fantasy Tip: This'll mean a drop in playing time for Kyle Blanks, who's been cold lately. Jesus Guzman will probably stick on roster instead.

San Diego Padres 1B Yonder Alonso (hand) could be out four-plus weeks with a fractured bone in his right hand, but he's hoping more for only three weeks.
Fantasy Tip: You can probably get away with dumping Alonso in shallow mixed leagues since he'll be out at least a month. In his stead, look for the Friars to mix and match at first base with Jesus Guzman and Kyle Blanks. It's unclear which player will receive more time, and they'll probably eat into each other's time. Neither are very attractive pieces in mixed formats unless it's a cavernous league.

The San Diego Padres will place 1B Yonder Alonso (hand) on the 15-day disabled list with a right hand contusion Thursday, June 6, to make room for the return of OF Cameron Maybin (wrist) from the DL. 1B Kyle Blanks will remain on the roster.
Fantasy Tip: Jesus Guzman and Blanks could split duties at first base with Alonso out, although both hit from the right side. They're both worthy of looking at in deep mixed leagues. Alonso hasn't played since last Friday, so the Padres can back date his DL stint to allow him to return soon.

San Diego Padres OF Kyle Blanks is likely to see his playing time reduced when OF Cameron Maybin (wrist) returns from the 15-day disabled list. Blanks is also a candidate to be demoted to Triple-A Tucson, as he has an option remaining. OF Jesus Guzman also has an option remaining, and he is a candidate for demotion, too.

San Diego Padres OF Cameron Maybin (wrist), who is dealing with a right wrist impingement, is in a split that he'll wear for the next week.
Fantasy Tip: Maybin's injury could take a while for him to recover from. Chris Denorfia has moved over to center field, and Kyle Blanks, along with Jesus Guzman will benefit from increased playing time. The oft-injured Blanks has teased with his power profile before but hasn't been able to stay healthy to deliver. He's had trouble with breaking pitches in the past, too, but should be owned in NL-only formats now that he's back in the bigs and healthy.

San Diego Padres 1B Jesus Guzman is hitting .438 with four RBIs and three multi-hit games in his last five contests to raise his average to .277 on the year. "I think now we are seeing more of Guzy, a little more loose, little bit more relaxed in the box, swinging at strikes, taking balls, bat speed has picked up a little bit, much better," manager Bud Black said.
