Padres | Melvin Upton leading off

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 13:39:43 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Melvin Upton Jr. is batting leadoff against St. Louis Cardinals SP Tim Cooney Thursday, July 2.

Fantasy Tip: Upton Jr. ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) sports a .147/.256/.294 slash line with a .251 wOBA this season, so FantasyScore players should view him as nothing more than a high-risk flier. Upton Jr. is a desperation source of stolen bases in deep seasonal leagues. Batting leadoff does increase his value, though.

Padres | Will Venable not in lineup Tuesday

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 12:22:04 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Will Venable is not in the lineup Tuesday, June 16, against the Oakland Athletics. OF Melvin Upton Jr. is in the lineup and leading off.

Fantasy Tip: Venable ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) does not hit well against left-handed pitching (.188), and his home batting average of .227 does not do any favors either. Upton ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is batting .100 in the past week and carries little fantasy value.

Padres | Melvin Upton Jr. leading off

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 11:25:36 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Melvin Upton Jr. is leading off and playing center field Tuesday, June 16.

Fantasy Tip: This should be the start of an uptick in playing time with Wil Myers' absence. Upton is a surer bet to start against southpaws, as he is against Oakland's Scott Kazmir today. On FantasyScore ($2,900, 5.8% of cap), he could be a sneaky play today.
