Padres | Alexi Amarista not in Tuesday lineup

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 12:32:06 -0700

San Diego Padres SS Alexi Amarista is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, June 16, against the Oakland Athletics. SS Clint Barmes is hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: It appears Amarista ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is getting a simple night off. His splits against lefty pitchers and at Petco Park are good (.278, .229) and his home average is 24 points better than on the road. Barmes ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) carries a .385 average in the past week, so he may be worth a low-cost purchase.

Fri, 12 Jun 2015 15:23:31 -0700

San Diego Padres SS Alexi Amarista is not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw Friday, June 12. SS Clint Barmes is starting at the 6 and hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Barmes ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) doesn't offer much offensive hope for FantasyScore users, and he has the most daunting pitching matchup of the evening, too. Ignore him.

Padres | Clint Barmes starting again

Tue, 09 Jun 2015 15:37:13 -0700

San Diego Padres SS Clint Barmes will make his third consecutive start at shortstop Tuesday, June 9, against the Atlanta Braves. SS Alexi Amarista will sit out once again.

Fantasy Tip: Barmes ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) will go up against RHP Mike Foltynewicz of the Braves, and he'll hit eighth in the order. Barmes is hitting .289 against righties this season, but he also has 10 strikeouts in just 39 plate appearances. FantasyScore owners could find better options.

Padres | Alexi Amarista sitting vs. Braves

Mon, 08 Jun 2015 13:30:11 -0700

San Diego Padres SS Alexi Amarista is not in the starting lineup Monday, June 8. SS Clint Barmes is batting eighth and starting against Atlanta Braves SP Shelby Miller.

Fantasy Tip: Amarista ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is barely holding onto his title as starting shortstop, but don't expect Barmes ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) to force the issue with his bat anytime soon, either. While Barmes has a respectable .265 batting average through 68 at-bats this season, he has just two RBI. Against Miller, Barmes should be viewed as nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief by FantasyScore players. Although, Barmes could be worth a flier in NL-only formats.

Sun, 07 Jun 2015 07:17:03 -0700

San Diego Padres SS Clint Barmes is in the starting lineup Sunday, June 7, with SS Alexi Amarista receiving the off day against RHP Johnny Cueto.

Fantasy Tip: Barmes ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) can typically be avoided on FantasyScore and that is especially true with an extremely tough matchup against Cueto.

Padres | Clint Barmes starting at SS

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 15:30:26 -0700

San Diego Padres SS Clint Barmes is starting at shortstop and hitting seventh in the batting order against New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom Monday, June 1. SS Alexi Amarista will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: With Amarista slumping, Barmes ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) could start seeing more playing time. He had a season-high three hits yesterday, but he's still hitting just .258 on the year and is a weak FantasyScore pick against deGrom.

Sun, 31 May 2015 15:42:29 -0700

San Diego Padres SS Alexi Amarista is not in the starting lineup Sunday, May 31, against the Pittsburgh Pirates. SS Clint Barmes is playing instead.

Fantasy Tip: Amarista ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is getting the night off even though it is a lefty vs. lefty matchup. Barmes ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should be left alone as he only has a .167 average in the past week.

Padres | Jedd Gyorko in lineup

Sat, 23 May 2015 16:01:21 -0700

San Deigo Padres 2B Jedd Gyorko will start at second base and bat fifth in the order Saturday, May 23, against the Los Angeles Dodgers. 3B Will Middlebrooks will make his first career start at shortstop, while SS Alexi Amarista has the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Gyorko ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is drawing a rare start against a right-handed pitcher. Hitting just .157 off righties this season, Gyorko can be avoided on FantasyScore.

Wed, 20 May 2015 15:47:31 -0700

San Diego Padres SS Alexi Amarista is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 20. SS Clint Barmes is starting at shortstop and hitting eighth in the batting order against Chicago Cubs SP Tsuyoshi Wada.

Fantasy Tip: Barmes' ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) .185 average (5-for-27) against left-handed pitchers this year says to avoid him at FantasyScore tonight.
