Padres | Cory Spangenberg has an opening

Tue, 08 Dec 2015 08:05:58 -0800

San Diego Padres 2B Cory Spangenberg could have an inside track to the second base job after the Padres dealt SS/2B Jedd Gyorko Tuesday, Dec. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Spangenberg hit .271 with four dingers, 21 RBIs and nine steals in 303 at-bats last season. He has some room to grow, but he could be a MI consideration with a hot spring.

Padres | Cory Spangenberg sitting out

Thu, 24 Sep 2015 15:19:48 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Cory Spangenberg is not in the starting lineup against San Francisco Giants left-handed SP Madison Bumgarner Thursday, Sept. 24. SS Jedd Gyorko moves over to second base and is hitting fifth, while SS Clint Barmes draws the start at shortstop and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Against the tough lefty Bumgarner, both Gyorko ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) and Barmes ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) are players to avoid on FantasyScore in a pitcher-friendly environment.

Padres | Cory Spangenberg not starting Friday

Fri, 11 Sep 2015 17:03:43 -0700

San Diego Padres INF Cory Spangenberg is not in the starting lineup against San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy Friday, Sept. 11. INF Alexi Amarista will play second base and bat seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Remove Spangenberg ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) from all fantasy lineups. Amarista ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is batting just .216 on the season and is hitless in three career at-bats versus Peavy, making him a poor FantasyScore starting option tonight.

Sun, 06 Sep 2015 11:46:53 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Spangenberg ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is batting .304 with three doubles and a triple over the past week and merits consideration as a value play in FantasyScore this afternoon.

San Diego Padres 2B Cory Spangenberg is not in the lineup against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Alex Wood Saturday, Sept. 5. SS Clint Barmes is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Barmes ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is hitting just .251 with three homers in 88 games this year, and you should look elsewhere for cap relief at FantasyScore.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte rested Wednesday

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 15:27:14 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Yangervis Solarte is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Sept. 2. 2B Cory Spangenberg is starting at third base and is batting leadoff against Texas Rangers SP Cole Hamels.

Fantasy Tip: While the leadoff spot is intriguing for Spangenberg's ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) daily outlook, a matchup against a tough lefty like Hamels is not. Spangenberg also has little power to take advantage of.

Padres | Cory Spangenberg sitting out

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 13:09:19 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Cory Spangenberg is not in the starting lineup against Philadelphia Phillies SP Adam Morgan. 2B Jedd Gyorko will start at second base, while SS Clint Barmes will start at shortstop and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Spangenberg ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) should return to the lineup in the near future. Barmes ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is hitting only .161 this month and should be avoided by owners on FantasyScore.

Padres | No Jedd Gyorko vs. Braves

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 15:49:56 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Jedd Gyorko is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 18. 2B Cory Spangenberg is playing second base and batting second, and SS Alexi Amarista is starting at shortstop and batting eighth against Atlanta Braves SP Matt Wisler Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: In a prime spot in the lineup, Spangenberg ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) boasts some upside as a source of cap relief at FantasyScore Tuesday. Amarista ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) and Gyorko ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) can be avoided. With Spangenberg back, there could be some timeshares developing in the infield for the Padres, so continue to check back for updates on who will receive the majority of playing time.
