The San Diego Padres will place SS Everth Cabrera (hamstring) on the disabled list Wednesday, July 2, and will bring up INF Brooks Conrad from the minors in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Cabrera has had a pretty dismal season, as he's hitting only .218 with 13 stolen bases around the halfway point. Don't feel the need to hang onto him in mixed leagues. Conrad will provide infield depth. Alexi Amarista is expected to start at shortstop for the time being, with Irving Falu at the keystone. Amarista's best asset is his speed, so look to add him if you seek stolen bases in deep mixed and NL-only leagues.

Updating a previous report, San Diego SS Everth Cabrera (hamstring) was scratched from the starting lineup Tuesday, July 1, due to a strained left hamstring. Whether the injury will cause Cabrera to land on the disabled list is unknown at this point.
Fantasy Tip: Cabrera is having a dreadful season and is only worth holding onto in NL-only formats if he lands on the disabled list. If you have a DL slot, he is worth a speculative stash in deep mixed leagues. However, given speed is his biggest asset, his stolen base potential could suffer now that he is dealing with a strained hamstring. Irving Falu should be the beneficiary of additional playing time and adds NL-only value, if Cabrera does miss any significant time.
