Major League Baseball announced that San Diego Padres SS Everth Cabrera will accept a 50-game suspension for his involvement in the Biogenesis scandal.
Fantasy Tip: Alexi Amarista is likely to take over the majority of playing time at shortstop with Cabrera done for the season. Logan Forsythe can probably fill in there, too, when needed, although he doesn't have the speed and quickness to play the position like Amarista does. Amarista's speed will make him a stolen base asset in deep mixed leagues.

San Diego Padres OFs Kyle Blanks and Will Venable, along with INF Logan Forsythe, have drawn interest from other teams in trade talks.

San Diego Padres 2B Logan Forsythe (knee) left the game Saturday, July 13, against the San Francisco Giants due to soreness in his right knee. Manager Bud Black doesn't think Forsythe will need a stint on the 15-day disabled list, and he'll have plenty of time off to rest during the upcoming All-Star break. Play resumes for the Padres Friday, July 19, on the road against the St. Louis Cardinals.

San Diego Padres 2B Jedd Gyorko (groin) ran during batting practice on Monday, July 1, but manager Bud Black said the infielder is still without a timetable to return. "We're hoping, by the end of the week at least, he's back to moving around, running and getting closer to going back out to play a few more games," Black said. He added that increased baseball activities isn't an imminent step.
Fantasy Tip: Gyorko sounded a little optimistic, but the progress has been agonizingly slow. It seems unlikely that he'll be ready before the All-Star break, at this rate, leaving Logan Forsythe with replacement value in deep leagues until then.

The San Diego Padres have options to play shortstop with SS Everth Cabrera (hamstring) headed to the disabled list. INFs Alexi Amarista, Pedro Ciriaco and Logan Forsythe can all fill in. Amarista struggled defensive at shortstop Tuesday, June 18. Forsythe has been filling in at second base with 2B Jedd Gyorko (groin) on the DL.
Fantasy Tip: Amarista and Forsythe will likely see the most playing time in the middle infield with Cabrera and Gyorko on the DL, with Ciriaco providing depth. Amarista and Forsythe will be short-term options for NL-only leaguers.

San Diego Padres 2B Jedd Gyorko (groin) was placed on the 15-day DL with a strained right groin. INF Logan Forsythe (foot) was activated from the DL and is playing second base Monday, June 10.
Fantasy Tip: Stash Gyorko wherever possible. Forsythe could prove quite useful in deep leagues as an MI fill-in.

San Diego Padres 2B Logan Forsythe (foot) started a minor-league rehab assignment with Triple-A Tucson Wednesday, May 29.

San Diego Padres OF Cameron Maybin (wrist) and 2B Logan Forsythe (foot) will play in rehab games Friday, May 24, in Arizona.
Fantasy Tip: Forsythe probably won't get much playing time in San Diego when he's healthy since he's blocked at third base and second base. Maybin, on the other hand, should return to starting duties in center field, pushing Chris Denorfia back to a platoon in right field. Maybin, although he's disappointed with the bat since moving to San Diego, will remain a decent source of steals in deep mixed leagues.
