Padres | Cory Spangenberg to DL

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 11:52:22 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Cory Spangenberg (knee) was put on the 15-day disabled list with a left knee contusion Tuesday, June 30. The DL move is retroactive to June 28. 2B Jedd Gyorko was recalled from Class AAA El Paso in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Spangenberg can probably be dropped if he was on your roster in shallow mixed leagues. Hang onto him elsewhere. Some combination of Yangervis Solarte ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) and Gyorko will likely split time at the keystone. However, Solarte has cooled off considerably since earlier in the season and Gyorko has continued to disappoint. Solarte is the more attractive fantasy option in deeper mixed leagues, but Gyorko could provide more power if he sees enough playing time.

Padres | Cory Spangenberg left game Saturday

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 05:13:46 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Cory Spangenberg (knee) left the game Saturday, June 27, against the Arizona Diamondbacks in the fourth inning due to a sprained left knee. 2B Yangervis Solarte would be in line for increased playing time if Spangenberg is forced to miss time.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) went 5-for-7 in his last two games. He'll be worth FantasyScore consideration against right-handed pitching, as he's hitting .267 for the season, with both of his home runs coming from the left-hand side of the plate.

Padres | Cory Spangenberg leading off

Sun, 21 Jun 2015 13:05:32 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Cory Spangenberg is back in the lineup Sunday, June 21, and leading off.

Fantasy Tip: Spangenberg ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) may be a mystery at this leadoff spot. He is batting .097 with just three hits in 31 at-bats. He does have two home runs and two RBIs, however, so the team may be trying for a little bit of power at the top of the lineup. He has a .242 average this season, so Spangenberg ranks as a decent play at this price.

Padres | Cory Spangenberg moves up in lineup

Mon, 15 Jun 2015 16:49:34 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Cory Spangenberg is batting second in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics SP Jesse Hahn Monday, June 15.

Fantasy Tip: Spangenberg ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has been on a bit of a hot streak with 14 hits in his last 12 games and five RBI during that span. Owners may be able to find better options, but Spangenberg could be a cheaper option to consider.

Padres | Cory Spangenberg resting vs. lefty

Fri, 12 Jun 2015 15:12:46 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Cory Spangenberg is not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw Friday, June 12. 2B Yangervis Solarte is starting at the keystone and hitting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) has cooled off quite a bit since a hot start to the season, and he's hitting .179 (5-for-28) in the last two weeks. He's also poor from the right side of the plate (.162-0-2) and is facing last year's Cy Young award winner in Kershaw. Don't click on Solarte on FantasyScore.

Padres | Cory Spangenberg hitting well on road

Thu, 11 Jun 2015 09:49:29 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Cory Spangenberg is 6-for-12 with three doubles and three RBI in the first three games of the series against the Atlanta Braves, and he's hitting .325 with seven doubles, a triple and five RBI in 28 road games this year. Spangenberg has hit .333 with four doubles and three RBI in his last 10 road games.

Fantasy Tip: Spangenberg ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has picked it up with the stick lately, and he's officially secured the starting second base job after the Friars demoted Jedd Gyorko to the minors yesterday. He should be owned in all deep mixed and NL-only leagues, but he's still nothing more than a sleeper play on FantasyScore due to his lack of power.

Padres | Jedd Gyorko demoted to minors

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 15:08:00 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Jedd Gyorko was demoted to Class AAA El Paso Wednesday, June 10, and RP Nick Vincent was recalled in a corresponding move. Gyorko was hitting .210 with two home runs and 11 RBI and had lost his starting job at second base to 2B Cory Spangenberg.

Fantasy Tip: You can safely dump Gyorko in all leagues except for the deepest of NL-only formats. Spangenberg ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has speed but limited power capabilities at the keystone for the Friars. He's a low-end sleeper selection on FantasyScore in the right matchups, like tonight against Atlanta Braves starter Williams Perez while hitting second in the order.

Padres | Cory Spangenberg in two-hole

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 13:38:15 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Cory Spangenberg is hitting second in the batting order against Atlanta Braves SP Williams Perez Wednesday, June 10.

Fantasy Tip: Spangenberg ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) gains some value in daily contests with the move to the top of the lineup, but he remains more of a sleeper play on FantasyScore without much power to speak of. Despite hitting just .237 (28-for-118) against righties, he does have both of his home runs and all eight of his RBI against them in 2015.

Padres | Cory Spangenberg not starting

Sat, 06 Jun 2015 12:45:16 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Cory Spangenberg is not in the starting lineup against the Cincinnati Reds Saturday, June 6. INF Yangervis Solarte will play second base and bat sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is only batting .208 with six RBIs over the last four weeks. Avoid using him in FantasyScore, as better options at comparable prices can easily be found.
