Padres | Cory Spangenberg back in leadoff spot

Thu, 21 May 2015 14:33:33 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Cory Spangenberg is starting at second base and hitting leadoff against Chicago Cubs SP Kyle Hendricks Thursday, May 21. 2B Jedd Gyorko will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Spangenberg ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is only hitting .233 (17-for-73) with two home runs and four stolen bases on the year. He's not a power hitter at all, but he can make things happen with his legs. Consider him a midrange second base option at FantasyScore while he continues to lead off.

Padres | Jedd Gyorko at 2B Wednesday

Wed, 20 May 2015 15:44:13 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Jedd Gyorko draws the start at second base and is hitting sixth in the batting order against Chicago Cubs SP Tsuyoshi Wada Wednesday, May 20. 2B Cory Spangenberg is sitting out against a lefty pitcher.

Fantasy Tip: Gyorko ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) will be ignored by most at FantasyScore, because he's hitting just .217 (20-for-92) with two home runs and nine RBI this year. However, he has a slash line of .375/.500/.667 with a home run against southpaws, and Wada will be making his first start of the year Wednesday. Gyorko is a cheap sleeper candidate that could return some huge value.

Padres | Cory Spangenberg continues to lead off

Tue, 19 May 2015 16:36:04 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Cory Spangenberg is starting at third base and hitting leadoff against Chicago Cubs SP Jason Hammel Tuesday, May 19. 3B Will Middlebrooks will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: With Wil Myers (wrist) on the DL, expect Spangenberg ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) to continue to lead off for the Friars. He doesn't boast much power at all, but he has 20-stolen base potential over a full season. Remember, stolen bases are worth two points at FantasyScore. His spot atop the lineup on an everyday basis should make him at least worth a consideration as a cheaper second base play on a daily basis.

Padres | Cory Spangenberg blasts two homers

Fri, 15 May 2015 04:41:32 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Cory Spangenberg hit two home runs Thursday, May 14, as the Padres topped the Washington Nationals 8-3. They were his first homers of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Spangenberg ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) hasn't done much up to now, but if he continues showing a little pop in the bat he could eat into 2B Jedd Gyorko's playing time. He bears watching, but don't rush to put Spangenberg in your lineups just yet.

Padres | Cory Spangenberg leading off Thursday

Thu, 14 May 2015 15:36:07 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Cory Spangenberg is starting at third base and hitting leadoff against Washington Nationals SP Doug Fister Thursday, May 14. 3B Will Middlebrooks has shifted across the diamond to start at first base.

Fantasy Tip: Spangenberg ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has slowly raised his average to .283 (15-for-53) this year as his playing time increases thanks due to injuries. His value increases while hitting atop the Friars' order, but he remains nothing more than a sleeper play at FantasyScore against Fister and the Nats.

Padres | Cory Spangenberg starting at 2B

Wed, 13 May 2015 16:36:15 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Cory Spangenberg is starting at second base and hitting second in the batting order against Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker Wednesday, May 13. 2B Jedd Gyorko will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Spangenberg ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is a very mediocre weapon for FantasyScore lineups, as he has no home runs and just one RBI for the Friars this year. He can take a walk, which is just as good as a hit at FantasyScore, but he produces too many empty statistics to tip the scales.

Padres | Cory Spangenberg starting again

Fri, 08 May 2015 16:53:43 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Cory Spangenberg is starting at second base and hitting second in the batting order again against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Jeremy Hellickson Friday, May 8. 2B Jedd Gyorko remains on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Spangenberg ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has now started the last three games at second base and four of the team's last five games, relegating Gyorko to more of a bench role. Spangenberg is a pesky contact hitter without much power, but he does possess good speed. Consider him a deep sleeper at FantasyScore against a pitcher that has been hit hard early in the season.

Padres | Jedd Gyorko sitting vs. Arizona

Thu, 07 May 2015 14:30:44 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Jedd Gyorko is not in the starting lineup against the Arizona Diamondbacks Thursday, May 7. 2B Cory Spangenberg is starting at second base and batting second Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: While Gyorko ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has gone 5-for-14 of late, he is still batting just .182 on the season and is starting to lose his luster in all fantasy formats. It would be wise to move on outside of deep mixed and NL-only formats. Spengenberg ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is 6-for-16 in May, and this will be his third consecutive start. The 2011 first-round selection is a nice source of cap relief for FantasyScore players.

Padres | Cory Spangenberg has three singles

Wed, 06 May 2015 21:41:17 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Cory Spangenberg went 3-for-5 with a walk and a run scored Wednesday, May 6, against the San Francisco Giants. He also chipped in with his first stolen base of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Spangenberg ($1,600; 3.2% of cap) has hit safely in three straight, and four of the past five games, making him a decent low-end start when the left-handed hitter is in the starting nine.

Padres | Will Middlebrooks sitting Wednesday

Wed, 06 May 2015 09:53:07 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Will Middlebrooks is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 6. 2B Cory Spangenberg is starting at third base and hitting second against San Francisco Giants SP Chris Heston.

Fantasy Tip: Middlebrooks last recorded a hit on April 27, and his average has fallen to .191 on the year. He could begin to lose playing time regularly to Spangenberg ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) or Yangervis Solarte. Spangenberg has eight hits in 33 at-bats this year but only one RBI, making him a low-end second base option at FantasyScore.
