Padres | Still no Justin Upton

Thu, 23 Jul 2015 15:41:30 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton (oblique) remains out of the lineup Thursday, July 23, against the Miami Marlins. OF Abraham Almonte will start in left field and bat leadoff against RHP Tom Koehler.

Fantasy Tip: Almonte went 2-for-4 Wednesday, in his first start since May 30. Even as Upton's absence drags on, Almonte shouldn't be considered for fantasy purposes.

Padres | Justin Upton out again Wednesday

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 10:37:21 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton (oblique) is out of the lineup Wednesday, July 22, with OF Abraham Almonte in at leadoff.

Fantasy Tip: Almonte had a 43 at-bat cup of coffee earlier this season and hit just .186. Give him a game or two to show what he can do before considering him on FantasyScore.

Padres | Will Middlebrooks sent down

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 10:34:58 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B/SS Will Middlebrooks was optioned to Class AAA El Paso Wednesday, July 22, with OF Abraham Almonte coming up from El Paso.

Fantasy Tip: Almonte failed to impress in a cup of coffee earlier this season, but he's leading off today. If he can carve a niche, he could be worth a low-end FantasyScore flyer.

Padres | Abraham Almonte starting in center field

Fri, 29 May 2015 15:29:13 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Abraham Almonte is starting in center field and batting eighth against the Pittsburgh Pirates Friday, May 29.

Fantasy Tip: Almonte ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) has a .223/.273/.311 slash line over his last 75 games and 259 plate appearances dating back to the beginning of 2014. Batting eighth doesn't help, either. Until he proves otherwise, FantasyScore players shouldn't view Almonte as anything more than a desperation source of cap relief.

Padres | Abraham Almonte in lineup

Mon, 25 May 2015 15:09:25 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Abraham Almonte will start in right field and bat eighth in the order Monday, May 25, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. OF Matt Kemp will serve as the designated hitter in the American League park.

Fantasy Tip: Almonte ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) is just 2-for-his-last 13 at-bats, spanning seven games. A switch-hitter, Almonte fairs much worse against right-handed pitchers. FantasyScore owners will need to look elsewhere for a bargain play.

Padres | Abraham Almonte leading off vs. Cubs

Wed, 20 May 2015 15:26:42 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Abraham Almonte is starting in center field and hitting leadoff against Chicago Cubs SP Tsuyoshi Wada Wednesday, May 20. OF Will Venable will start on the bench against a lefty.

Fantasy Tip: Almonte ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) and Venable ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) are effectively in a platoon situation in center field with Wil Myers (wrist) on the DL. Venable offers more speed and power upside as a sleeper play at FantasyScore.

Padres | Wil Myers remains sidelined

Sun, 17 May 2015 11:32:25 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Wil Myers (wrist) remains out of the lineup Sunday, May 17, against the Washington Nationals. OF Abraham Almonte will play center field and bat second.

Fantasy Tip: Myers ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) is a possibility to return to the starting lineup in the next few days. Almonte ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) provides salary cap relief in FantasyScore but not much else.

Padres | Abraham Almonte leading off for SD

Wed, 13 May 2015 16:33:01 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Abraham Almonte is starting in left field and hitting leadoff against Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker Wednesday, May 13. OF Justin Upton is serving as the designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Almonte ($1,700, 3.4% of cap), a switch hitter, hits just .234 with four of his five career home runs against right-handers from the left side of the plate. While Walker has struggled with consistency this year, Almonte shouldn't excite FantasyScore owners looking for a deep sleeper, even while hitting leadoff.

Padres | Abraham Almonte starting in CF

Tue, 12 May 2015 16:37:54 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Abraham Almonte is starting in center field and hitting seventh in the batting order against Seattle Mariners SP James Paxton Tuesday, May 12.

Fantasy Tip: Almonte ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) is a switch hitter that only hits .236 (25-for-106) in his career from the right side while facing lefties. It's hard to recommend him at FantasyScore.

Padres | Yonder Alonso headed to DL

Fri, 08 May 2015 16:24:48 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Yonder Alonso (shoulder) was placed on the disabled list with a deep bone bruise in his right shoulder Friday, May 8. OF Abraham Almonte is being called up from the minors in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: The Padres can get creative now, as both Wil Myers ($4,300, 8.6% of cap), who is playing first base Friday night, and Derek Norris ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) can fill in for Alonso. That could mean more playing time for Will Venable ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) in center field and Austin Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) behind the plate.
