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.

Padres | Cory Spangenberg leaves game

Tue, 19 Apr 2016 23:51:47 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Cory Spangenberg (quadriceps) left the game Tuesday, April 19, against the Pittsburgh Pirates due to a strained left quadriceps muscle.

Fantasy Tip: Avoid Spangenberg in NL-only fantasy leagues which allow daily moves and DFS play until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks. Adam Rosales could see more at-bats if Spangenberg is forced to miss time.

Padres | Brett Wallace hitting cleanup

Sat, 16 Apr 2016 15:45:28 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Brett Wallace is hitting cleanup and playing third base Saturday, April 16, with 2B Cory Spangenberg out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Wallace is just 1-for-10 (.100) on the season. The spot in the lineup is nice, but he doesn't have much upside against Shelby Miller right now.

Padres | Brett Wallace playing third base Saturday

Sat, 16 Apr 2016 11:27:55 -0700

San Diego Padres INF Brett Wallace will bat cleanup and start at third base against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Shelby Miller Saturday, April 16. INF Alexi Amarista, who played the hot corner Friday, April 15, will start at second base Saturday, with 2B Cory Spangenberg receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Wallace is 1-for-10 with five strikeouts and should be avoided in daily fantasy leagues during his ice-cold stretch at the plate, despite the fact that he's hitting in a favorable spot in the batting order.

Padres | Cory Spangenberg dropped in order

Fri, 15 Apr 2016 14:54:15 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Cory Spangenberg is batting sixth against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Zack Greinke Friday, April 15.

Fantasy Tip: Spangenberg is a low-end option at second base or middle infield in deep mixed leagues with upside to help in the stolen base and batting average column. And while hitting down the lineup hurts his overall fantasy value, it could provide a few more RBI opportunities. Spangenberg is an extremely risky daily option Friday with San Diego facing Greinke.

Padres | Jon Jay, Spangenberg leadoff options

Wed, 24 Feb 2016 10:33:35 -0800

San Diego Padres OF Jon Jay and 2B Cory Spangenberg are two potential options to hit leadoff this year, according to manager Andy Green.

Fantasy Tip: Spangengerg probably profiles better here and is more attractive in deep mixed and NL-only leagues for his wheels. Jay isn't a guarantee anymore to hit for a healthy average, and he has plenty of injury concerns.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte to open at 3B

Mon, 08 Feb 2016 16:08:34 -0800

San Diego Padres 3B Yangervis Solarte spent spring training last year preparing for a super-utility role, but he spent most of the 2015 season at third base while hitting .270/.320/.428 with 14 home runs and 63 RBI. Solarte also hit .292 after the All-Star break. As a result, he's expected to be the starting third baseman in 2016. 2B Cory Spangenberg can also play there, and 1B Brett Wallace can spell him, too.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte is useful mainly in deep mixed leagues because of his positional versatility, and he can provide power in spurts. He had 11 of his 14 home runs from the left side, so he's also a sneaky daily play against certain right-handers.

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.
