Padres | Derek Norris on the bench

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 10:42:45 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris (shoulder) is not in the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals SP Lance Lynn Sunday, July 5. C Austin Hedges will start at catcher and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Norris ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) has been dealing with an injury and is receiving a day off. Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is hitting only .119 on the season and should not be a starting option for owners on FantasyScore.

Padres | Will Middlebrooks remains out

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 10:34:30 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Will Middlebrooks (ankle) is not in the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals SP Lance Lynn Sunday, July 5. 2B Yangervis Solarte will start at third base and is batting second in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Middlebrooks ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) continues to be sidelined with an ankle injury and his return date is uncertain. Solarte ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) has picked at least one hit in seven of his last eight games with two home runs and four RBI in that span. He could be a solid starting option for owners on FantasyScore.

Padres | Justin Upton sitting Sunday

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 10:20:49 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton is not in the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals SP Lance Lynn Sunday, July 5. OF Melvin Upton Jr. will start in center field and is batting first in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Upton ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) is receiving a day off and should return soon. Melvin Upton ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) has struggled since coming off the bench and is hitting .163 this season. Owners on FantasyScore should be able to find better options to use.

Padres | Brandon Morrow rehab update

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 12:06:56 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Brandon Morrow (shoulder) threw a 40-pitch bullpen session Saturday, July 4, and could throw a simulated game next week in Pittsburgh.

Fantasy Tip: Morrow ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) could begin a minor league rehab assignment not long after throwing a simulated game. He remains a candidate to be stashed in NL-only and deep mixed fantasy baseball leagues. FantasyScore owners should wait one or two starts after he is activated from the disabled list before considering him for their lineups.

Padres | Derek Norris playing through pain

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 11:41:40 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris (shoulder) is in the lineup against the St. Louis Cardinals Saturday, July 4, despite having an AC sprain of his left shoulder, according to manager Pat Murphy.

Fantasy Tip: Entering play Saturday, Norris ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) was batting .238 with 11 homers and 45 RBIs. Even though his injury appears minor enough where he's able to play through it, FantasyScore owners should be aware that he is not at 100 percent.

Padres | Melvin Upton Jr. in lineup

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 10:23:20 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Melvin Upton Jr. will bat leadoff and play center field against St. Louis Cardinals SP Carlos Martinez Saturday, July 4.

Fantasy Tip: Upton ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) is only batting .175 through 40 at-bats this season and should be avoided in FantasyScore, despite hitting at the top of the batting order this afternoon.

Padres | Jedd Gyorko comes up big

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 20:30:11 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Jedd Gyorko hit a game-tying home run in the seventh and a go-ahead single in ninth in a 2-1 win over the St. Louis Cardinals Friday, July 3.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the big game, Gyorko is still hitting just .216 with three homers in 50 games. After showing a ton of potential as a rookie, he continues to regress, and Gyorko isn't worth considering at FantasyScore right now.

Padres | Justin Upton snaps skid

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 20:23:56 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton broke an 0-for-17 skid with a single in the sixth inning against the St. Louis Cardinals Friday, July 3. He also stole a base.

Fantasy Tip: Upton ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) had been in a slight funk, but he is still on pace for 28 homers, 91 RBI and 32 steals. He won't come cheap, but Upton has the type of upside that can put a FantasyScore lineup over the top and into the money.

Padres | Yonder Alonso leading off vs. Cards

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 15:17:53 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Yonder Alonso is leading off against St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha Friday, July 3.

Fantasy Tip: With minimal pop potential, Alonso's ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) .310 batting average and .399 on-base percentage profile nicely atop the San Diego lineup. He is a low-end first base option in all formats, and he likely isn't worth targeting in FantasyScore contests Friday against Wacha.

Cardinals | Xavier Scruggs starting vs. Padres

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 14:34:54 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Xavier Scruggs is starting at first base and batting seventh against San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner Friday, July 3.

Fantasy Tip: Scruggs ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is 10-for-25 to start the season, and he stands as a solid low-priced flier for FantasyScore contests Friday. However, you'll be passing up on a lot of talent and upside by utilizing him as your first basemen.

Padres | Will Middlebrooks close to returning

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 14:43:57 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Will Middlebrooks (ankle) participated in on-field agility drills Thursday, July 2, and he could return to the lineup Friday, July 3.

Fantasy Tip: Middlebrooks ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has a .221/.249/.383 slash line this season, and he is nothing more than a low-priced flier for FantasyScore players going forward. In seasonal formats, he should be left on waivers outside of cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues.

Padres | Brandon Morrow tosses bullpen session

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 14:27:53 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Brandon Morrow (shoulder) threw 30 pitches in a bullpen session Thursday, July 2. He is expected to throw another bullpen session Saturday, July 4.

Fantasy Tip: Morrow ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) remains a stash candidate in cavernous mixed and NL-only formats, but FantayScore players will want to see Morrow prove himself on the mound before utilizing him in contests. Continue to check back for updates on Morrow's return timeline and progress.

Padres | Jedd Gyorko batting fifth vs. St. Louis

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 13:44:40 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Jedd Gyorko is batting fifth against St. Louis Cardinals SP Tim Cooney Thursday, July 2.

Fantasy Tip: Gyorko ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has a .900 OPS, .179 ISO and .388 wOBA against southpaws this season, so if there was ever a time to take a speculative flier on him at FantasyScore, Thursday is the night. Still, he is a dice roll.

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 | Yonder Alonso sitting out vs. Cards

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 13:26:20 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Yonder Alonso is not in the starting lineup Thursday, July 2. C Austin Hedges draws into the lineup behind the plate with C Derek Norris playing first base. Norris is batting second, and Hedges is batting seventh against St. Louis Cardinals SP Tim Cooney Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Alonso ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) in all fantasy formats Thursday. He is having one of the best runs of his career and sports a respectable .310/.396/.402 slash line this season. Just don't count on much help in the home run or stolen base columns. Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has a .305 OPS this season, so FantasyScore players should look elsewhere. Norris ($4,800, 9.6% of cap), on the other hand, has a career .374 wOBA and .857 OPS against southpaws and is an excellent option for daily players Thursday.
