Padres | Wil Myers takes a seat

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 13:44:09 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Wil Myers is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 22. 1B Brett Wallace is starting at first base and is hitting seventh against Washington Nationals SP Tanner Roark.

Fantasy Tip: Myers, a first-time All-Star this year, has gone just 4-for-25 (.160) with a homer and RBI since the break. It makes sense for him to take a breather tonight. He must remain in all starting lineups from here on out when playing, though. Wallace is barely over the Mendoza Line (.209) and has just five homers and 15 RBI on the season. Ignore him in DFS.

Padres | Melvin Upton back from bereavement list

Mon, 18 Jul 2016 12:39:14 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Melvin Upton Jr. was reinstated from the bereavement list Monday, July 18. In a corresponding move, 3B Brett Wallace was placed on the paternity list.

Fantasy Tip: Upton is having an excellent season and is tipping the scales across the counting stats with 45 runs, 16 home runs, 44 RBI and 20 stolen bases. His .262/.311/.454 slash line isn't an anchor, either. He should be universally owned and started. Wallace hasn't received a start in July, so he's not worth rostering in any fantasy format at this stage.

Padres | Brett Wallace draws into lineup

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 10:23:56 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Brett Wallace is starting at third base and is hitting fifth against Baltimore Orioles SP Yovani Gallardo Wednesday, June 29. 3B Yangervis Solarte moves over to second base.

Fantasy Tip: Wallace does have some pop in his lumber, but he's hitting just .211 on the season with four home runs and 11 RBI in 142 at-bats. However, Wallace is hitting .429 (9-for-21) with a home run and RBI in 21 career at-bats against Gallardo. Every way you slice it, Wallace is a deep sleeper pick in daily setups.

Padres | Brett Wallace cleaning up

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 16:17:49 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Brett Wallace is hitting cleanup Saturday, June 18, in place of 3B Yangervis Solarte.

Fantasy Tip: Wallace is hitting just .154 and has done very little this year. He's still worth consideration in the cleanup spot, but he's facing Max Scherzer. He's a shot in the dark in DFS.

Padres | Ryan Schimpf with another start

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 10:26:50 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Ryan Schimpf is starting again at third base and is hitting eighth against Miami Marlins SP Justin Nicolino Wednesday, June 15. 1B Brett Wallace is out against the left-hander.

Fantasy Tip: Schimpf was tearing it up in the minors before his call-up yesterday, and he went 1-for-4 with a double in his major league debut. He could see decent playing time at least in the short term as the Padres give him a shot to prove he belongs at the big league level. For now he's a cheap flier in deep NL-only leagues if you're hurting for corner infield depth.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte, Brett Wallace out

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 16:18:05 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Yangervis Solarte (thumb) and 3B Brett Wallace are not in the starting lineup against Miami Marlins SP Tom Koehler Tuesday, June 14. 3B Ryan Schimpf will start at third base and is batting sixth, while SS Alexi Amarista will start at second base and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Schimpf was hitting .355 with 15 home runs and 48 RBI with Class AAA El Paso when he was recalled by the Padres. He should be an option in NL-only leagues if he receives solid playing time. Owners in deeper mixed leagues and daily fantasy leagues should keep an eye on him. Amarista should be a decent option in NL-only leagues but is not a strong option in most leagues.

Padres | Brett Wallace out vs. lefty

Mon, 13 Jun 2016 13:48:01 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Brett Wallace is not in the starting lineup against Miami Marlins left-handed SP Wei-Yin Chen Monday, June 13. 3B Adam Rosales draws into the lineup at second base and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Rosales is a super-utility player that doesn't offer up much for fantasy purposes. He has a .188/.274/.347 slash line with three home runs and 10 RBI on the year. Consider him a desperation daily selection Monday night.

Padres | Brett Wallace not in lineup Saturday

Sat, 11 Jun 2016 10:43:10 -0700

San Diego Padres INF Brett Wallace is not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Tyler Chatwood Saturday, June 11. INF Yangervis Solarte will bat cleanup and play the hot corner, while INF Alexi Amarista will bat eighth and start at second base.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte has just three hits in 17 at-bats over the past week but is batting .371 on the road this season and .313 versus Colorado pitching, so he's worth considering as a flier in daily fantasy games this afternoon. Amarista is 5-for-12 at the plate in June but should only be used if you're in desperate need of salary cap relief.

Padres | Derek Norris, Brett Wallace sitting

Wed, 08 Jun 2016 10:32:01 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris and 1B Brett Wallace are not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 8. C Christian Bethancourt is doing the catching and is hitting sixth against Atlanta Braves SP Julio Teheran. 2B Alexi Amarista draws into the lineup at second base and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Bethacourt does have some pop (four home runs) but is a low-end boom-or-bust DFS option. Amarista has zero power and very little speed, so he's a desperation daily selection.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte out Sunday

Sun, 05 Jun 2016 15:05:35 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Yangervis Solarte is not in the starting lineup Sunday, June 5, against the Colorado Rockies. 3B Brett Wallace will bat fourth against Rockies SP Jon Gray.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte is on a hot streak, hitting safely in four of his last five games, but he will get a seat Sunday. Wallace has a .364 average against the Rockies, and he is hitting in a more advantageous position, but a .167 mark over the last week should scare you off from activating Wallace.
