Padres | Wil Myers out of lineup

Fri, 13 May 2016 14:56:46 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Wil Myers is not in the starting lineup Friday, May 13. 1B Brett Wallace is playing first base and is hitting cleanup against Milwaukee Brewers SP Junior Guerra. Also, SS Alexei Ramirez moves up into the two-hole.

Fantasy Tip: Wallace's production has improved lately while playing every day (two home runs, five RBI this month), but he's still only hitting .226 this month. The matchup tonight isn't overwhelming, so Wallace has a decent shot to return value in daily formats again. Ramirez gains minimal value in daily games, too, but he has almost no power to speak of.

Padres | Alexei Ramirez returns for nightcap

Wed, 11 May 2016 15:11:10 -0700

San Diego Padres SS Alexei Ramirez (hamstring) is back in the starting lineup for Game 2 of a doubleheader against Chicago Cubs SP John Lackey Wednesday, May 11. Ramirez is hitting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Ramirez has no home runs on the year and has limited upside in all fantasy formats, especially coming off a hammy cramp last night in cold weather. To add to it, he's hitting just .154 with no homers or RBI against Lackey in his career in 15 plate appearances. Look elsewhere.

Padres | Three Padres sit Game 1

Wed, 11 May 2016 08:09:08 -0700

San Diego Padres SS Alexei Ramirez (hamstring), OF Jon Jay and OF Melvin Upton Jr. are out of the lineup Wednesday, May 11, in the first game of a doubleheader. OF Travis Jankowski is leading off, OF Alex Dickerson is hitting sixth and SS Adam Rosales is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Dickerson has a homer and four RBI in six at-bats this season, and he's worth a basement flyer against Kyle Hendricks. Jankowski and Rosales aren't worth consideration.

Padres | Alexei Ramirez exits

Tue, 10 May 2016 23:12:52 -0700

San Diego Padres SS Alexei Ramirez (hamstring) left the game Tuesday, May 10, with a hamstring cramp. He expects to play Wednesday, May 11.

Fantasy Tip: Ramirez is hitting .261 with 11 RBI and three steals this season. He's a so-so option in DFS if he's good to go.

Padres | Derek Norris, Alexei Ramirez sitting

Wed, 13 Apr 2016 12:42:55 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris and SS Alexei Ramirez are not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 13. C Christian Bethancourt is catching and hitting sixth, while SS Alexi Amarista is at shortstop and is hitting eighth against Philadelphia Phillies SP Jerad Eickhoff. Also, 3B Adam Rosales gets a start at third base and is hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Eickhoff is an impressive young pitcher for the Phils, so the Padres could have trouble with him in the series finale. Bethancourt, Amarista and Rosales are all low-end options in daily formats today.

Padres | Alexei Ramirez contract details

Fri, 22 Jan 2016 17:27:03 -0800

Updating a previous report, San Diego Padres SS Alexei Ramirez signed a one-year contract worth $3 million. The deal also includes a $4 million mutual option for the 2017 season.

Fantasy Tip: The 34-year-old Ramirez hit .249 with 10 home runs and 62 RBIs in 154 games last season and could experience a dip in those numbers while playing his home games at the pitcher-friendly Petco Park. On the other hand, he did walk more frequently and strike out less often in 2015 than he had in other recent seasons, according to FanGraphs.com. He is a low-end middle infield option who should be selected in the later rounds of NL-only and cavernous mixed leagues.

Padres | Alexei Ramirez signs with San Diego

Thu, 14 Jan 2016 12:11:34 -0800

Free-agent SS Alexei Ramirez (White Sox) signed a one-year contract with the San Diego Padres Thursday, Jan. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Ramirez is coming off the worst season of his career and heading to pitcher-friendly PETCO Park doesn't bode well for the 34-year-old shortstop turning it around. At best, Ramirez is a low-end middle infielder in cavernous mixed and NL-only formats.

Padres | San Diego close to signing SS

Thu, 14 Jan 2016 09:44:15 -0800

The San Diego Padres are close to signing a shortstop not free-agent SS Ian Desmond (Nationals), according to sources. Free-agent SS Alexei Ramirez (White Sox) appears to be their choice, barring a surprise.

Fantasy Tip: The fantasy appeal of Ramirez is very low right now, especially after he posted a .249 average with 10 home runs and 17 stolen bases in his final season with the Chicago White Sox. Moving to pitcher-friendly Petco Park will further reduce his appeal, although he can run a bit. He's a low-end middle infield option in deep mixed formats.

Padres | SD talking to Alexei Ramirez

Fri, 08 Jan 2016 09:33:45 -0800

The San Diego Padres are still talking with free-agent SS Alexei Ramirez (White Sox), and he would require a shorter deal than free-agent SS Ian Desmond (Nationals).

Fantasy Tip: Ramirez's final season with the White Sox was a disappointing one, as he hit a career-low .249 (145-for-583) with 10 home runs and 62 RBI. We all know he doesn't have much pop, and a move to Petco Park would further limit his ability to drive the baseball. Ramirez would be an unattractive low-end shortstop in mixed leagues in San Diego.

White Sox | Alexei Ramirez's option nixed

Wed, 04 Nov 2015 10:11:43 -0800

Chicago White Sox SS Alexei Ramirez's option for the 2016 season was declined Wednesday, Nov. 4. He'll receive a $1 million buyout.

Fantasy Tip: Ramirez is just a year removed from a .273-15-74 season with 21 steals. He can be a midrange option at a thin position, despite him being 34 years old.
