Padres | Cory Spangenberg unlikely to return

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 22:49:21 -0700

San Diego Padres INF Cory Spangenberg (quadriceps) isn't likely to return this season, manager Andy Green said Saturday, July 16. The infield tore his left quadriceps for the second time this year.

Fantasy Tip: Spangenberg can be dropped in all deeper NL-only fantasy formats if you normally rely upon him.

Padres | Cory Spangenberg tears quad again

Fri, 15 Jul 2016 18:33:02 -0700

San Diego Padres INF Cory Spangenberg (quadriceps) said he has torn his left quadriceps again. He has already received one platelet-rich plasma injection and is scheduled to get another one soon.

Fantasy Tip: For now, Spangenberg is expected to receive plenty of rest. No timetable has been established for his return but he is not worth stashing outside of deep NL-only fantasy leagues.

Padres | Cory Spangenberg suffers setback

Fri, 08 Jul 2016 18:24:53 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Cory Spangenberg (quadriceps) was hoping to begin running at 75% intensity during pregame warmups Friday, July 8, but had to stop midway through.

Fantasy Tip: Spangenberg has been on the disabled list since April 20 because of a strained left quadriceps muscle, and could still return shortly after the All-Star break despite Friday's setback. He was batting .229 with one home run and eight RBI through 14 games prior to getting injured and should be viewed as infield depth in NL-only and cavernous mixed fantasy leagues.

Padres | Cory Spangenberg takes BP

Sat, 02 Jul 2016 22:09:28 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Cory Spangenberg (quadriceps) took batting practice on the field Saturday, July 2, for the first time since hitting the 15-day disabled list. It appears he will head out on a minor-league rehab stint with the team's Arizona Rookie League team during the team's upcoming road trip.

Fantasy Tip: Spangenberg might be back shortly after the All-Star break, but when he is healthy he is only worth using in the deepest of NL-only fantasy leagues and as a salary saver in DFS when starting.

Padres | Rehab updates for Friars

Tue, 17 May 2016 17:11:40 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Alexi Amarista (hamstring) is playing second base and leading off for Class AA San Antonio to start his rehab assignment Tuesday, May 17. 3B Yangervis Solarte (hamstring) played seven innings in an extended spring training game Monday, May 16, and he's slightly behind Amarista. 2B Cory Spangenberg (quadriceps) had a setback while trying to run two weeks ago for the first time. He hasn't run since or participated in any baseball activities.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds like none of this trio will be ready to return for at least another week or two. Amarista is more of a utility player at the big league level. Solarte and Spangenberg were in starting roles when they were injured. Solarte can contribute modestly across the board but doesn't have much upside, while Spangenberg is mainly attractive in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues for his wheels.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte, Spangenberg progressing

Wed, 04 May 2016 15:36:36 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Yangervis Solarte (hamstring) and 2B Cory Spangenberg (quadriceps) took the day off Wednesday, May 4, after running and taking batting practice two days previously. However, there remains no timetable for when they will begin rehab assignments.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte and Spangy have a ways to go before returning to the Friars lineup. Solarte played in only five games before he was injury, while Spangenberg was underwhelming with a .229/.302/.354 slash line with one homer and one stolen base in 48 at-bats. Both players should return as starters when they're ready, but neither has much fantasy value other than in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues.

Padres | Cory Spangenberg resumes running

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 21:37:21 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Cory Spangenberg (quadriceps) has started running on an anti-gravity treadmill, as he makes his way back from a strained quadriceps muscle.

Fantasy Tip: With Spangenberg on the shelf it is Alexi Amarista, Adam Rosales and Jemile Weeks each seeing more at-bats. Spangenberg is only worth a look in deeper NL-only fantasy formats when healthy.

Padres | Cory Spangenberg placed on disabled list

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 14:14:04 -0700

Updating a previous report, San Diego Padres 2B Cory Spangenberg (quadriceps) was officially placed on the disabled list Wednesday, April 20. In a corresponding move, 2B Jemile Weeks had his contract purchased from Class AAA El Paso.

Fantasy Tip: Weeks posted a .306/.405/.500 slash line through 10 games in the minors and will likely see enough work to warrant an add in NL-only leagues. However, his upside is limited, as Weeks hasn't been a regular in the league since 2012 when he returned a .221/.305/.304 line. Adam Rosales and Alexi Amarista should also be in the mix at the keystone, too. Stay tuned for updates on Spangenberg's recovery and return timeline.

Padres | Cory Spangenberg likely to DL

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 12:07:43 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Cory Spangenberg (quadriceps) is likely to land on the disabled list, and 2B Jemile Weeks could soon be added to the 40-man roster to take Spangenberg's place.

Fantasy Tip: Either Adam Rosales or Alexi Amarista are likely to take over at the keystone, with Weeks possibly seeing starts here and there. The other will take over at third base with Yangervis Solarte on the DL. All three of the options to replace Spangenberg at second are light-hitting options that shouldn't attract much interest outside of NL-only affairs.
