Padres | Alex Dickerson goes deep again

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 21:18:48 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Alex Dickerson was 2-for-5 with a three-run home run against the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday, July 26. It was his third straight game with a homer and the club's 24th in a row, which makes it the longest such streak since 2002 when the Texas Rangers set the MLB record by homering in 27 consecutive games.

Fantasy Tip: With Melvin Upton being traded to Toronto, Dickerson should see plenty of ABs the rest of the way. He has posted a .306-4-12 line in 62 at-bats this month to go with a pair of stolen bases. Dickerson has value in NL-only leagues and should be on your radar in deeper mixed formats.

Padres | Andrew Cashner solid again

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 21:13:42 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner allowed three runs on four hits, including two homers, in six innings against the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday, July 26. He walked three and struck out six.

Fantasy Tip: Cashner got a no-decision when Brad Hand couldn't hold the lead, but this was the fourth time in five starts since returning from the DL where the righty pitched well enough to earn the "W." Cashner is trending in the right direction and is an interesting stash candidate based on the likelihood of being traded.

Padres | Brett Wallace will be DH

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 13:00:59 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Brett Wallace will serve as the designated hitter against Toronto Blue Jays SP Marcus Stroman Tuesday, July 26, and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Wallace has only three hits in his 18 at-bats this month and will be entering the game with .207 batting average. Owners in most leagues should be able to find better players to use in their lineup and can avoid Wallace.

Padres | Hansel Rodriguez coming to Friars

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 07:34:20 -0700

Updating earlier reports, Toronto Blue Jays SP Hansel Rodriguez is the player headed to the San Diego Padres in the deal for OF Melvin Upton Jr.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez, 19, is 2-1 with a 3.06 ERA in six starts at Rookie League Bluefield. He has 26 K's in 32 1/3 innings. It'll be a couple of years before he's on the fantasy radar.

Padres | SD to pay much of Melvin Upton's salary

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 06:34:58 -0700

Updating an earlier report, San Diego Padres OF Melvin Upton Jr. is part of an agreement to the Toronto Blue Jays, and the Padres will pay much of the $22 million owed to Upton.

Fantasy Tip: Alex Dickerson will benefit most from the move initially. Jon Jay (forearm) is due back in a few weeks, but he, too, has been rumored to be on the trade block. Manuel Margot could factor into the equation in September. The 21-year-old has a .306-4-37 line with 24 steals at Class AAA El Paso. He's worth watching for NL-only usage. Dickerson is hitting .280 with four homers in 75 at-bats, and he's worth grabbing in NL-only formats. Upton's value will be predicated on the amount of playing time he has in a loaded Blue Jays lineup. If he snatches the majority of time in center, he'll have a lot of upside in a better lineup and ballpark. He's a low-end mixed leaguer, but his 20 steals may not grow too much in that lineup.

Padres | Colin Rea logs quality start in loss

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 19:05:47 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Colin Rea dropped to 5-5 after losing Monday, July 25, opposite the Toronto Blue Jays, but did manage to log a quality start. He went six innings, allowing three runs on five hits and four walks. Rea also struck out four.

Fantasy Tip: In the process, Rea was able to bring down his ERA below 5.00 for the first time since early June, as it now sits at 4.98 on the season. Anyone crazy enough to deploy Rea in tonight's assignment should be happy with this performance, considering the opponent and that it came on the road, but he really should only be an option in the deepest leagues when he's starting at home.

Padres | Alex Dickerson heating up

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 18:52:58 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Alex Dickerson logged his second straight three-hit game Monday, July 25, against the Toronto Blue Jays. He was 3-for-4 with his fourth home run of the season, which produced his two RBI and lone run scored for the contest. He also laced a double.

Fantasy Tip: Dickerson doesn't really get consistent playing time at the moment, but that may change with his recent hit barrage. Plus, there's also a good chance San Diego ships out one or two of their offensive players, which could pave the way for Dickerson to get regular at-bats. He'll be on the radar if he can get into the lineup more consistently.

Padres | Melvin Upton out of lineup again

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 13:30:19 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Melvin Upton Jr. is not in the starting lineup Monday, July 25. OF Alex Dickerson is starting in left field and is hitting fifth against Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez. Also, 1B Brett Wallace is serving as the designated hitter and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: That's two straight days out for Upton, so check back to see if he's 100% physically. Dickerson and Wallace both have some pop in their lumber but are far too inconsistent to be anything more than low-end deep sleeper picks for daily owners.

Padres | SD pushing hard to trade batterymates

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 15:46:21 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner and C Derek Norris are among the players the team is reportedly "pushing hard" to move ahead of the trade deadline on Sunday, July 31.

Fantasy Tip: It should come as no surprise either player is available. Cashner has been on the block for some time, while Norris brings a little pop to a position that is lacking it across the league. It helps the Padres are comfortable with backup Christian Bethancourt and also have prospect Austin Hedges waiting in the wings. Hedges is tearing it up at Class AAA El Paso, batting .367 with 17 homers and 61 RBI in 47 games. Both Bethancourt and Hedges should be on fantasy rosters should Norris get dealt.

Padres | Ryan Schimpf ties team record

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 15:44:11 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Ryan Schimpf hit his ninth home run of July, which ties a team record for most homers by a rookie in a calendar month.

Fantasy Tip: Schimpf may be playing himself into a regular roster job before you know it. With Cory Spangenberg and Jemile Weeks out due to injury, Schimpf is producing on a regular basis and should be picked up in DFS formats and deeper NL and mixed leagues.

Padres | Melvin Upton not in lineup Sunday

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 09:47:03 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Melvin Upton Jr. is not in the starting lineup against Washington Nationals SP Lucas Giolito Sunday, July 24. OF Alex Dickerson will play left field and bat fifth. In addition, C Derek Norris is back in the lineup, batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Upton has been the subject of numerous trade rumors recently, although it does not appear as though a deal is imminent. Dickerson is batting .227 with two home runs and 10 RBI through 66 at-bats but daily fantasy owners should be able to find better options this afternoon.

Padres | San Diego interested in Josh Naylor

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 08:25:08 -0700

The Miami Marlins have reportedly discussed sending 1B Josh Naylor to the San Diego Padres in a potential deal involving SP Andrew Cashner.

Fantasy Tip: Naylor is a 19-year-old left-handed-hitting prospect currently playing for Class A Greensboro. He is batting .365 with nine home runs, 53 RBI and 10 steals through 84 games and is unlikely to have a fantasy impact in the next two or three years, although he should be on the radar of owners in dynasty leagues.

Padres | Multiple teams eyeing Andrew Cashner

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 08:08:47 -0700

According to multiple sources, nearly 10 MLB teams have expressed interest in trading for San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner. The Baltimore Orioles, Detroit Tigers, Houston Astros, Miami Marlins, San Francisco Giants, Texas Rangers and Toronto Blue Jays are among the clubs that have talked to the Padres in recent days about the 29-year-old right-hander.

Fantasy Tip: Cashner is 4-7 with a 4.79 ERA this season but he has allowed just two runs on seven hits over his last two outings, with no walks and 17 strikeouts. He will become a free agent after the season, making it almost certain that he will be traded to a contender within the next few days. Cashner should be viewed as a decent fantasy option regardless of the uniform he's wearing.

Padres | Tyson Ross improving

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 19:47:14 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Tyson Ross (shoulder) recently threw from 250 feet, and manager Andy Green said Ross' arm is feeling "really good."

Fantasy Tip: Ross is inching closer to his return, and if he happens to be on waivers in your league, grab him and stash him.

Padres | Edwin Jackson solid again

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 19:18:44 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Edwin Jackson allowed two runs on six hits while walking three and striking out one in a no-decision against the Washington Nationals Saturday, July 23, and he has allowed two runs in each of his first two starts with San Diego.

Fantasy Tip: Although Jackson has been stingy with his new team, he has also walked eight batters while striking out just five. Don't expect him to have much value going forward.
