Padres | Matt Kemp taking day off

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 13:32:00 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Matt Kemp is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 10. OF Will Venable is starting in right field and hitting leadoff against Atlanta Braves SP Williams Perez.

Fantasy Tip: Venable ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) has been pretty useful to fantasy owners and has seen consistent playing time with Wil Myers (wrist) out for weeks. At the top of the lineup, he presents a nice speed presence for those looking for a value play on FantasyScore tonight. All five of Venable's home runs have come off right-handed pitchers this year, too, and he owns an .825 OPS in 2015 against righties.

Padres | Will Venable in leadoff spot

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 15:18:28 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Will Venable is starting in center field and hitting leadoff against New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom Monday, June 1.

Fantasy Tip: Venable ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) looks much more attractive to FantasyScore users while hitting leadoff, but he's still more of a low-end outfield play. For what it's worth, deGrom has been much more hittable on the road (6.75 ERA, 1.69 WHIP) than at home (1.34 ERA, 0.87 WHIP) in 2015.
