San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton is not in the starting lineup Thursday, April 23. OF Will Venable receives the start in left field and is hitting sixth in the batting order against Colorado Rockies SP Jordan Lyles.
Fantasy Tip: Venable ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a low-end outfield option at FantasyScore today, but he does have two home runs this season and has speed to boot. He has one home run in nine career at-bats against Lyles, for what it's worth.

San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton (quadriceps) is not in the starting lineup Sunday, April 19. OF Will Venable will start in left field.
Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor Upton's ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) injury over the next few days to see when he will play again. Venable ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has gone 2-for-9 at the plate in 2015 and may not be a great option on FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Will Venable, Jeff Francoeur and Chris Denorfia could receive more playing time with Maybin suspended, but there have been reports that Denorfia could be moved by the trade deadline. Owners in deep leagues could consider adding Venable to their team, while Francoeur and Denforia should only be considered in NL-only leagues for now.
