Padres | Wil Myers back after a day off

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 12:27:39 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Wil Myers is in the starting lineup batting second against Washington Nationals SP Max Scherzer on Saturday, July 23. OF Travis Jankowski is also back after a rest day and will hit leadoff. However, C Derek Norris will sit in favor of C Christian Bethancourt, who will fill in behind the plate and bat seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Myers sat out Friday after getting hit by a pitch for the first time all season Thursday, but the absence was not believed to be injury-related and this proves it. A bigger concern for fantasy owners is his 2-for-22 slump - something that doesn't figure to get much better with Scherzer on the mound, although he is 4-for-6 lifetime against the right-hander. Myers has been too good this season to bench, so non-DFS owners should keep starting him in hopes he can get back on track soon.

Padres | Travis Jankowski leads off Tuesday

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 14:44:27 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Travis Jankowski leads off Tuesday, July 19, against St. Louis Cardinals SP Carlos Martinez.

Fantasy Tip: With Jon Jay sidelined due to a broken right forearm until at least the first week of August, Jankowski has become a low-cost DFS option and a credible replacement for Jay. Jankowski has a .252-1-6 line, so the power isn't there, but he has 16 stolen bases. That makes him a decent threat atop the lineup.

Padres | Melvin Upton back in lineup

Mon, 18 Jul 2016 13:44:13 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Melvin Upton Jr. is back in the starting lineup and is hitting leadoff against St. Louis Cardinals SP Mike Leake Monday, July 18. OF Travis Jankowski returns to the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Upton missed the last few games while on the bereavement list. Get him back into your starting lineups immediately. He's had a resurgence in SD this year with a .262/.311/.454 slash line, 16 home runs, 45 runs, 44 RBI and 20 steals. Any 20-30 candidate is a must-own and must-start in all leagues.

Padres | Travis Jankowski leading off

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 15:31:55 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Travis Jankowski is leading off Saturday, July 16.

Fantasy Tip: Jankowski is hitting just .252, but he has 15 steals on the year. He's worth the low-end flyer against Jeff Samardzija in the leadoff spot.

Padres | Derek Norris leading off

Fri, 15 Jul 2016 16:00:54 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris is batting first in the starting lineup against San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner Friday, July 15. OF Travis Jankowski is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Norris has been a bit inconsistent at the plate this month and is hitting .222 during that span. He should still be a decent option in two-catcher leagues. Jankowski has had some success at the plate over the last few weeks, but owners probably will be able to find better options.

Padres | Travis Jankowski shows off wheels

Sat, 09 Jul 2016 19:57:13 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Travis Jankowski went 1-for-3 with a run scored, RBI and walk with two strikeouts Saturday, July 9, against the Los Angeles Dodgers. He also picked up his 14th steal of the season, and ninth in the past 16 games since June 21. That's the most in the majors during that stretch.

Fantasy Tip: Jankowski has emerged as a decent NL-only fantasy option and friend of rotisserie owners for his help in the stolen bases category.

Padres | Travis Jankowski gets the nod

Sat, 09 Jul 2016 15:19:42 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Travis Jankowski will make his first start in three games in center field and bat leadoff against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Brandon McCarthy on Saturday, July 9. OF Melvin Upton Jr. will move from first to fifth in the batting order as a result and play in left field.

Fantasy Tip: With Jon Jay sidelined, Jankowski has been seeing a lot of work against right-handers and batted .278 against them. He is a low-cost play any time the Padres face a right-hander and a legitimate stolen base threat (13 in 97 at-bats this season). Upton is locked in and coming off 4-for-5, two-homer outburst against the Dodgers on Friday. He's hitting .344 with four home runs in July so far and is a top-10 fantasy outfielder this season.

Padres | Alex Dickerson in LF Thursday

Thu, 07 Jul 2016 16:04:34 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Alex Dickerson is starting in left field and is hitting sixth against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Hyun-Jin Ryu Thursday, July 7. OF Travis Jankowski will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Dickerson has limited exposure to major league pitching and is hitting just .233 (7-for-30) with the Friars with two home runs and seven RBI. He's one to avoid as a deep sleeper in DFS against a left-handed starter, too.

Padres | Melvin Upton, Derek Norris out

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 14:57:18 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Melvin Upton Jr. and C Derek Norris (elbow) are not in the starting lineup Tuesday, July 5. OF Travis Jankowski is starting in center field and is leading off, while C Christian Bethancourt is doing the catching and batting sixth against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Zack Godley.

Fantasy Tip: Norris left the game with an elbow injury last night, so he might be forced to miss more time. Stay tuned for updates. Jankowski has speed and Bethancourt can supply power, but both are low-end daily considerations against Arizona.
