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 | Jedd Gyorko starting at the keystone

Fri, 29 May 2015 15:25:13 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Jedd Gyorko is starting at second base and batting sixth against the Pittsburgh Pirates Friday, May 29.

Fantasy Tip: After looking like there may be signs of life, Gyorko ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has gone 1-for-16 since Tuesday, May 19. He is a risky start in all fantasy formats, and at this point, FantasyScore players should aim higher.

Padres | James Shields giving up homers

Fri, 29 May 2015 11:37:13 -0700

San Diego Padres SP James Shields has allowed 15 home runs this season, the most by a starting pitcher in the National League, but he also has 11.8 strikeouts per nine innings pitched.

Fantasy Tip: Shields ($7,400, 14.8% of cap) hasn't been hurt this season by his tendency to give up home runs. As long as it doesn't hurt his ability to win games, this shouldn't prevent you from putting Shields in your starting lineup every time he pitches.

Padres | Brandon Morrow to throw again

Thu, 28 May 2015 23:43:25 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Brandon Morrow (shoulder) threw 45 pitches in a simulated game Thursday, May 28. Morrow will throw again this weekend and could go out on a rehab stint if there are no complications.

Fantasy Tip: Morrow ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) may be close to a return, but as with any injury you may want to wait for a start or two before evaluating whether Morrow is ready to go in your lineup.

Padres | Ian Kennedy rocked by longball

Thu, 28 May 2015 23:39:28 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Ian Kennedy has allowed seven home runs and 20 earned runs in his last four starts combined.

Fantasy Tip: Kennedy ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) has definitely struggled in recent outings, which should alarm you enough to leave the Padres pitcher on your bench for now. Certain matchups may be intriguing, but he is giving up too much for Kennedy to make a difference in your lineup.

Padres | Wil Myers could swing this weekend

Thu, 28 May 2015 16:41:04 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Wil Myers (wrist) is improving, but he has yet to test his wrist by swinging. He could take some swings in the cages over the weekend.

Fantasy Tip: There remains no timetable for Myers' ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) return, although he's already eligible to come off the DL. Stay patient. In the meantime, Will Venable ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) should continue to see the majority of starts in center field, and he's not a bad value pick on FantasyScore when he's facing right-handed pitchers, especially while hitting at the top of the lineup.

Padres | Will Middlebrooks drives in three

Wed, 27 May 2015 22:39:32 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Will Middlebrooks went 2-for-4 with one home run and three RBI against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Wednesday, May 27.

Fantasy Tip: Middlebrooks ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has 10 hits over his last eight games but is still hitting only .227 on the season. Owners on FantastyScore likely will be able find better options on most nights, so Middlebrooks is not a great option.

Padres | Matt Kemp hopes slump is over

Wed, 27 May 2015 12:22:34 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Matt Kemp's bases-clearing double helped his team beat the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, 4-0, on Tuesday, May 26. Kemp was hitting from the fourth spot instead of the third, which is now occupied by OF Justin Upton. Kemp was hitting .185 (17-for-92) in May.

Fantasy Tip: Manager Bud Black made this move to get Upton ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) up in the first inning and give Kemp ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) a bit of time to relax. It appears to have worked this week, but you may want to wait and see for one or two games if Kemp has found his bat again.

Padres | Matt Kemp breaks slump

Tue, 26 May 2015 23:45:52 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Matt Kemp, who was mired in a 16-for-91 slump this month, had a three-run double in the 10th inning Tuesday, May 26. The Padres beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 4-0.

Fantasy Tip: Kemp ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) could have some more success as the month continues, thanks to one dramatic hit. Keep an eye on his progress and don't be afraid to use him if he shows more signs of snapping out of it.

Padres | Wil Myers improving, no timeline

Tue, 26 May 2015 17:16:51 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Wil Myers (wrist) underwent a scan Tuesay, May 26, in which his left wrist showed tendon improvement. Myers is still sore and he remains without a timetable to resume hitting.

Fantasy Tip: Myers ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) should remain owned in all leagues, but owners are right to be growing impatient. With the scans showing improvements, it will soon be about whether Myers can play through the pain.

Padres | Jedd Gyorko in as DH

Tue, 26 May 2015 16:53:37 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Jedd Gyorko will serves as the designated hitter and hit eighth in the lineup Tuesday, May 26, against the Los Angeles Angels.

Fantasy Tip: Gyorko ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is hitless in his last 13 at-bats, and he shouldn't be considered on FantasyScore.

Padres | Brandon Morrow to throw simulated game

Mon, 25 May 2015 18:17:30 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Brandon Morrow (shoulder) will throw a simulated game Thursday, May 28. Morrow was encouraged after throwing a 42-pitch bullpen session Sunday, May 24.

Fantasy Tip: Morrow ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) should be stashed in NL-only leagues and even very deep mixed leagues. Morrow had a 2.73 ERA through five starts before going on the disabled list, and even his 3.64 xFIP would make him worthy of a roster spot.

Padres | Josh Johnson stops throwing

Mon, 25 May 2015 18:16:41 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Josh Johnson (neck) had to stop throwing because of a "nerve situation" in his neck, according to manager Bud Black. Johnson is working his way back from Tommy John surgery, and he also reported tightness in his triceps after throwing a simulated game April 28.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson is quickly becoming irrelevant in fantasy circles. There's no reason to be stashing Johnson in any type of league at this point.

Padres | Yonder Alonso going through activities

Mon, 25 May 2015 17:46:23 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Yonder Alonso (shoulder) will go through full baseball activities Monday, May 25, and Tuesday, May 26. The activities will include pregame ground balls and batting practice on the field. Alonso will start a rehab assignment Wednesday, May 27, at Class High-A Lake Elsinore.

Fantasy Tip: Alonso ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) can be stashed by owners in NL-only leagues, but he won't have much value in mixed leagues until he proves himself upon a return.

Padres | Wil Myers still without timetable

Mon, 25 May 2015 17:45:35 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Wil Myers (wrist) will return to San Diego Tuesday, May 26, to undergo a new scan on his injured left wrist. The scan will also check the rate of healing with the tendinitis in Myers wrist, according to manager Bud Black.

Fantasy Tip: Myers ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) is technically eligible to be activated Tuesday, but he is yet to resume swinging. Season-long owners will need to check back for the results of the scan.
