Padres | Jedd Gyorko starting Monday

Mon, 04 May 2015 16:46:59 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Jedd Gyorko is starting at second base and hitting sixth in the batting order against San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner Monday, May 4.

Fantasy Tip: Gyorko ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) came through with a pinch-hit home run, his first of the year, yesterday. He's still only hitting .161 (9-for-56) on the season, though, and he should be avoided at FantasyScore while facing Bumgarner.

Padres | Jedd Gyorko making progress at plate?

Sun, 03 May 2015 19:43:27 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Jedd Gyorko hit a pinch-hit, two-run home run in an 8-6 win over the Colorado Rockies Sunday, May 3, and he said after the game that he feels his swing continues to improve as the year goes on.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the homer, Gyorko ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is still hitting just .161 this season and is a brutal 3-for-40 against right-handed pitchers. He needs to show a lot more consistency at the plate before he is worth considering at FantasyScore.

Padres | Jedd Gyorko in lineup

Sat, 02 May 2015 16:23:14 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Jedd Gyorko is in the lineup Saturday, May 2, against the Colorado Rockies and SP Jorge De La Rosa. Gyorko will play second base with 3B Yangervis Solarte going to first base and 1B Yonder Alonso out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Gyorko ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has started 2015 with a pitiful .135 batting average but will get the start against a lefty due to his career .255 average against southpaws. Until Gyorko starts showing some signs of promise in 2015, he should be avoided on FantasyScore.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte starting again

Fri, 01 May 2015 15:20:12 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Yangervis Solarte is starting at second base again and hitting second in the batting order against Colorado Rockies SP Eddie Butler Friday, May 1. 2B Jedd Gyorko is on the bench yet again.

Fantasy Tip: At this point, Solarte ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has become the Padres' starting second baseman over the struggling Gyorko. Gyorko shouldn't be held in shallow mixed leagues, and Solarte is worth an addition in those same formats. In daily games such as FantasyScore, Solarte continues to be an acceptable second base play, especially while hitting at the top of the lineup.

Padres | Jedd Gyorko starting Wednesday

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 11:20:50 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Jedd Gyorko is receiving the start against Houston Astros SP Dallas Keuchel Wednesday, April 29. Gyorko is hitting sixth in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Gyorko ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has become a bench option for the Padres with the elevated play of Yangervis Solarte and Gyorko's early-season slump (.143-0-3). Until Gyorko provides some glimpse of production at the plate, you should look to avoid him at FantasyScore.

Padres | Jedd Gyorko won't be sent to minors

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 16:48:16 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Jedd Gyorko won't be sent to the minors, according to manager Bud Black, Tuesday, April 28. Gyorko is hitting just .054 off right-handed pitchers so far this season.

Fantasy Tip: Gyorko ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) hit 23 home runs in 2013, but hit just 10 homers in 2014. The patient owners, who've hung onto Gyorko so far, should wait it out a little while longer as the Padres will face a slew of left-handed pitchers in their upcoming games. Gyorko has hit .260 off lefties in 261 career plate appearances.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte starting again

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 16:29:37 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Yangervis Solarte is starting again at second base and is hitting second in the batting order against Houston Astros SP Roberto Hernandez Tuesday, April 28. 2B Jedd Gyorko remains on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) continues to steal playing time from the slumping Gyorko. Solarte has proved valuable for the Friars in 2015, hitting .320 (16-for-50) with two home runs and 11 RBI. He's done most of his damage hitting from the left side, too (.350, two homers, 10 RBI), making him a great value play at FantasyScore tonight.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte staying hot

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 13:49:45 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Yangervis Solarte was 3-for-4 with a double and two RBI Monday, April 27, and he's batting .326 (14-for-43) when he's starting this year with four doubles, two home runs and nine RBI. Seven of his starts have come at second base against right-handers. However, he's also hitting .350 (14-for-40) against lefties. 2B Jedd Gyorko is batting only .054 (2-for-37) against righties with nine strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) continues to steal playing time from the struggling Gyorko, and if he continues to play often, he'll have mixed league utility. He's even more valuable with multi-position eligibility in fantasy leagues. If he starts tonight against Houston Astros starter Roberto Hernandez, he should be considered a fine value play at FantasyScore.

Padres | Cory Spangenberg starting again

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 15:11:57 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Cory Spangenberg is starting at second base again and hitting second in the batting order against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Zack Greinke Friday, April 24. 2B Jedd Gyorko remains on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Spangenberg ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a scrappy hitter for the Padres at the top of a potent batting lineup. However, he should be considered a low-end keystone start tonight at FantasyScore against Greinke, who has owned the Padres in his career.

Padres | Cory Spangenberg draws start

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 10:01:43 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Cory Spangenberg is starting at second base and hitting second in the batting order against Colorado Rockies SP Jordan Lyles Thursday, April 23. 2B Jedd Gyorko is sitting the bench yet again.

Fantasy Tip: Gyorko ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is quickly losing playing time to Spangenberg and Yangervis Solarte after another slow start (.163-0-3). At this point, it's not worth holding him in shallow mixed leagues. Spangenberg is a pesky lefty stick that has some appeal at FantasyScore at the top of the Friars lineup in a hitter's park. He's 3-for-12 on the year and is worth a low-priced flyer today against Lyles.
