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.
