San Diego Padres SS Alexei Ramirez (hamstring), OF Jon Jay and OF Melvin Upton Jr. are out of the lineup Wednesday, May 11, in the first game of a doubleheader. OF Travis Jankowski is leading off, OF Alex Dickerson is hitting sixth and SS Adam Rosales is hitting eighth.
Fantasy Tip: Dickerson has a homer and four RBI in six at-bats this season, and he's worth a basement flyer against Kyle Hendricks. Jankowski and Rosales aren't worth consideration.

San Diego Padres OF Will Venable was placed on the paternity leave list Thursday, Aug. 6. OF Alex Dickerson was recalled from Class AAA El Paso.
Fantasy Tip: Melvin Upton Jr. ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) will get the start and bat eighth. Upton has two home runs, six stolen bases and is batting .237 this season. He is cheap and playing in a good hitter's park against a mediocre pitcher in Matt Garza, but you should be able to find better options today.
