From -- thru  --


Padres | Melvin Upton finished strong

Tue, 26 Jan 2016 14:44:14 -0800

San Diego Padres OF Melvin Upton Jr. hit .306/.379/.529 with a .908 OPS in his final 85 at-bats of the 2015 season. "I still think I've got a lot left in the tank," Upton said. He'll be fighting for the starting center field job in spring training with OF Travis Jankowski. He's owed $16 million this year and $17 million in 2017.

Fantasy Tip: Neither Upton nor Jankowski provide much pop for fantasy owners, although they can both run and contribute to your stolen base numbers in deep mixed and NL-only universes.

Fantasy Tip: Remove Myers ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) from your fantasy lineups. Jankowski ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is batting just .188 during the month of September and is not a great outfield option in FantasyScore.

Padres | No Matt Kemp against Phillies

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 14:17:42 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Matt Kemp (shoulder) is not in the starting lineup Friday, Aug. 28. OF Travis Jankowski is playing right field and batting ninth against Philadelphia Phillies SP Aaron Nola Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Kemp ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) has been on a tear since the All-Star break, and don't forget he finished 2014 strong, too. Make sure to avoid him in all fantasy formats Friday, though, as he is dealing with a sore shoulder. Expect him back sooner than later. FantasyScore players have no reason to target Jankowski ($2,600, 5.2% of cap), either.

Padres | Matt Kemp sitting vs. Nats

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 13:48:12 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Matt Kemp is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Aug. 27. OF Travis Jankowski is playing right field and batting first against Washington Nationals SP Joe Ross Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Kemp ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) in all fantasy formats Thursday. The veteran has turned it on with seven home runs, 31 RBI and a .306/.366/.522 slash line over 36 games since the All-Star break. Jankowski ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is 5-for-13 to start his career, and hitting first in the lineup makes him a potential low-priced flier for FantasyScore players Thursday.

Padres | Melvin Upton in two-hole

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 14:10:08 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Melvin Upton Jr. is starting in center field and hitting second against Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez Wednesday, Aug. 26. OF Travis Jankowski will start on the bench against a lefty.

Fantasy Tip: Upton ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) and Jankowski ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) are basically locked into a platoon in center field now, with Jankowski gaining the strong side of the platoon against righties. Both outfielders have plenty of speed but not much power, and Jankowski's upside is brighter for fantasy owners. Upton remains a low-end outfield option on FantasyScore against a lefty tonight. He's hitting just .217 (10-for-46) with two home runs against them this year.
