Padres | Ian Kennedy looks good

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 20:31:16 -0700

Updating a previous report, San Diego Padres SP Ian Kennedy (hamstring) threw 81 pitches over six innings in an extended spring training appearance Monday, April 20. Manager Bud Black was happy with the result. "He looked good, (threw) all his pitches," Black said. "He had a few strikeouts. They nicked him for a couple of runs, but overall he's throwing the ball good, no issues with the hamstring."

Fantasy Tip: Kennedy is eligible to come off the 15-day disabled list April 25. FantasyScore owners will want to wait to see him officially return and pitch a full game without any setbacks before trusting him at $5,600 (or 11.2% of the cap).

Padres | Justin Upton leaves game

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 20:30:37 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton (quadriceps) left the game Monday, April 20, against the Colorado Rockies in the middle of the fourth inning after three at-bats. He had been nursing a strained left quadriceps, and might have simply been lifted due to the lopsided score of the game.

Fantasy Tip: All indications are that Uptonís removal from the game was precautionary, but this is one of those instances where FantasyScore owners need to be careful and wait to see a guy make it through a full game before trusting him in the lineup after an injury.

Padres | Justin Upton returns Monday

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 14:57:29 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton (quadriceps) is back in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Jorge De La Rosa Monday, April 20.

Fantasy Tip: Upton ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) has started the season off hot with three home runs and a .326 average in 46 at-bats. Last year, Upton hit .286 (34-for-119) with 11 of his 29 home runs off southpaws. He's a strong play at FantasyScore this evening while swinging at hitter-friendly Coors Field, too.

Padres | Ian Kennedy tosses six innings

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 14:56:43 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Ian Kennedy (hamstring) threw 81 pitches through six innings during his extended spring training start Monday, April 20.

Fantasy Tip: Barring a setback, it would appear Kennedy ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) is set to return to the rotation sooner than later. It might be wise to avoid him in his first start back from the disabled list while he works out any kinks. He has great upside at his cap hit for FantasyScore players, though, and especially at home in pitcher-friendly PETCO Park.

Padres | Alexi Amarista out against lefty

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 14:51:17 -0700

San Diego Padres SS Alexi Amarista is not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Jorge De La Rosa Monday, April 20. SS Clint Barmes is starting at shortstop and hitting eighth in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Barmes ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) isn't much of an offensive force, and hitting at the bottom of the lineup isn't all that attractive for FantasyScore users. However, the matchup against De La Rosa is intriguing, and he'll be playing at hitter-friendly Coors Field. Barmes is a low-priced dice roll tonight at shortstop.

Padres | Yonder Alonso sitting out

Sun, 19 Apr 2015 11:09:57 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Yonder Alonso is not in the starting lineup Sunday, April 19. 3B Yangervis Solarte is starting at first base Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is off to a strong start with a .375 batting average and five RBI. Owners on FantasyScore could consider him as a cheaper starting option. Alonso ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) likely will return to the lineup in the next game.

Padres | Justin Upton not in lineup

Sun, 19 Apr 2015 11:01:38 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton (quadriceps) is not in the starting lineup Sunday, April 19. OF Will Venable will start in left field.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor Upton's ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) injury over the next few days to see when he will play again. Venable ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has gone 2-for-9 at the plate in 2015 and may not be a great option on FantasyScore.

Padres | Justin Upton exits

Sat, 18 Apr 2015 15:44:41 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton (quadriceps) left the game Saturday, April 18, with a quadriceps strain. He's day to day.

Fantasy Tip: Will Venable ($1,600, 3.2% of your cap) has flashed 30-steal potential in the past and would be a nice flyer on FantasyScore if Upton misses time.

Padres | James Shields delivering for new team

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 19:03:02 -0700

San Diego Padres SP James Shields improved to 2-0 with a win over the Chicago Cubs Friday, April 17, allowing three earned runs and striking out nine over six innings.

Fantasy Tip: Shields ($7,000, 14.0% of cap) has struck out at least seven batters in all three starts this year, and he owns a 2.84 ERA and 1.00 WHIP. It is safe to say that Shields is enjoying life with the Padres, and he is a great option at FantasyScore right now.

Padres | Ian Kennedy throws another 'pen session

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 09:05:52 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Ian Kennedy (hamstring) threw another bullpen session Friday, April 17, without issues. He'll throw 75-90 pitches in an appearance at extended spring training Monday, April 27.

Fantasy Tip: At that pitch count, Kennedy should be stretched out enough to return barring setbacks. At $5,600 (11.2% of your cap), Kennedy is one of those second starters on FantasyScore that can deliver SP1 production.

Padres | Ian Kennedy's rehab schedule

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 15:14:01 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Ian Kennedy (hamstring) will pitch a bullpen session Wednesday, April 15, and Friday, April 17. Then he will pitch in a minor league game Monday, April 20.

Fantasy Tip: Continue to stash Kennedy in all formats. He is a nice source of strikeouts, and he pitches in a favorably home environment. Make sure to check back for updates on his recovery and an official announcement on when he'll rejoin the rotation. Given it isn't an arm injury, there is less risk returning Kennedy to your lineups immediately upon his return, too.

Padres | Jedd Gyorko back in starting lineup

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 14:56:48 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Jedd Gyorko is back in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Chase Anderson Wednesday, April 15. Gyorko is starting at second base and hitting seventh in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Gyorko ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has just three hits in his first 21 at-bats this year. He spent the last two games sitting the bench to work on his swing with coaches. Gyorko will have a shot to show that some changes made a difference Wednesday, but you should be skeptical at FantasyScore until we see real progress.

Padres | Jedd Gyorko sitting again Tuesday

Tue, 14 Apr 2015 15:42:24 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Jedd Gyorko remains out of the starting lineup Tuesday, April 14. 3B Yangervis Solarte is starting at second base and hitting second in the batting order for the second straight night.

Fantasy Tip: Gyorko ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is quickly fizzling after a very disappointing 2014 season. He has just three hits in 21 at-bats (.143) so far with five strikeouts and three double plays. On the flip side, Solarte ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has made the most of his opportunities. His ability to put the ball in play often gives him a chance to be productive at FantasyScore with regular playing time in this upgraded offense. You should consider him in your daily lineups tonight to save money elsewhere against Arizona Diamondbacks starter Jeremy Hellickson.

Padres | Josh Johnson moving closer

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 16:23:49 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Josh Johnson (elbow) had another successful bullpen session Monday, April 13, in which he threw all of his pitches. He will pitch in minor league games next month.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson could be a rotation option for the Padres in a couple months, depending on how Ian Kennedy (hamstring) comes back from his injury. He's a stash option right now for NL-only owners. Keep him on your radar in deep mixed leagues and monitor his progress.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte starting at 2B

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 15:39:26 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Yangervis Solarte is starting at second base and hitting second in the lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Rubby De La Rosa Monday, April 13.

Fantasy Tip: With Jedd Gyorko starting the season slow at second, Solarte ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) could see more playing time. Solarte fared much better against lefties (.291) than righties (.243) in 2014, but he did have seven of his 10 homers against right-handers last year. You could do worse than Solarte at FantasyScore as a cheap sleeper option for your infield.
