Padres | Melvin Upton Jr. hitting seventh

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 17:56:39 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Melvin Upton Jr. will start in center field and hit seventh in the order Tuesday, June 30, against the Seattle Mariners and LHP Mike Montgomery. OF Will Venable comes out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Upton Jr. ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) has just one hit in 18 plate appearances against lefties this season, providing FantasyScore owners with yet another reason to ignore him.

Padres | Cory Spangenberg to DL

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 11:52:22 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Cory Spangenberg (knee) was put on the 15-day disabled list with a left knee contusion Tuesday, June 30. The DL move is retroactive to June 28. 2B Jedd Gyorko was recalled from Class AAA El Paso in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Spangenberg can probably be dropped if he was on your roster in shallow mixed leagues. Hang onto him elsewhere. Some combination of Yangervis Solarte ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) and Gyorko will likely split time at the keystone. However, Solarte has cooled off considerably since earlier in the season and Gyorko has continued to disappoint. Solarte is the more attractive fantasy option in deeper mixed leagues, but Gyorko could provide more power if he sees enough playing time.

Padres | Jedd Gyorko coming up Tuesday

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 22:19:22 -0700

The San Diego Padres will promote 2B Jedd Gyorko from Class AAA El Paso Tuesday, June 30.

Fantasy Tip: Give Gyorko a few games to prove he can be efficient again at this big-league level before trusting him again for FantasyScore purposes.

Padres | Matt Kemp loving leadoff spot

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 20:48:05 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Matt Kemp is hitting .350 with two doubles, two homers and five RBI in five games since being moved to the leadoff spot.

Fantasy Tip: Kemp ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) was hitting just .192 in the 13 games before the move, so at the very least, it has woken him up a bit. He could be worth taking a chance on at FantasyScore in his new role.

Padres | Will Middlebrooks injures ankle

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 20:29:08 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Will Middlebrooks (ankle) left the game in the seventh inning after he rolled his ankle while trying to catch a foul popup against the Arizona Diamondbacks Sunday, June 28.

Fantasy Tip: Middlebrooks ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) status going forward is unclear, but he is a fringe option at best at FantasyScore anyway.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte playing second

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 12:50:16 -0700

San Diego Padres INF Yangervis Solarte will start at second base against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Chase Anderson Sunday, June 28.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is starting at the keystone position because INF Cory Spangenberg (knee) is sidelined due to a sprained left knee. He is 2-for-8 against Anderson in his career and is worthy of consideration in FantasyScore because he is faring much better against righties.

Padres | Will Middlebrooks starting Sunday

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 12:47:57 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Will Middlebrooks is in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Chase Anderson Sunday, June 28, batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Middlebrooks ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) is 1-for-3 against Anderson in his career but he is only batting .194 this month and .083 against Arizona this season, so he should be avoided in FantasyScore.

Padres | Clint Barmes returns to lineup

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 12:45:50 -0700

San Diego Padres SS Clint Barmes is back in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Chase Anderson Sunday, June 28, batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Barmes ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is batting .348 this month and is hitting .375 against Arizona pitching this season, making him one of the better sources of productive cap relief available in FantasyScore this afternoon.

Padres | Cory Spangenberg left game Saturday

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 05:13:46 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Cory Spangenberg (knee) left the game Saturday, June 27, against the Arizona Diamondbacks in the fourth inning due to a sprained left knee. 2B Yangervis Solarte would be in line for increased playing time if Spangenberg is forced to miss time.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) went 5-for-7 in his last two games. He'll be worth FantasyScore consideration against right-handed pitching, as he's hitting .267 for the season, with both of his home runs coming from the left-hand side of the plate.

Padres | Justin Upton snaps drought

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 05:09:05 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton hit his first home run since June 13, Saturday, June 27, against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Upton's 14th homer of the season was his 11th at Petco Park.

Fantasy Tip: Upton ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) extended his hitting streak to six games, with a total of eight hits in that span. Strikeouts are an issue for Upton, but he does have the upside to compensate.

Padres | Andrew Cashner goes seven strong

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 05:08:02 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner allowed eight hits and two runs over seven innings Saturday, June 27, against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Cashner struck out six and didn't walk a single batter.

Fantasy Tip: It was Cashner's ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) first win since May 27, and he had piled up an ERA of 7.62 over his previous five starts. FantasyScore owners will want to see a few more starts like this before investing in Cashner. He should be avoided when he takes the mound Friday, July 3, in St. Louis.

Padres | Tyson Ross stingy with homers

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 04:56:52 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Tyson Ross has not allowed a home run in his last 11 starts, which span 72 innings total. Ross allowed only three homers all year.

Fantasy Tip: Ross ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) is a pitcher to consider for your FantasyScore lineups as long as he is putting up solid results like this.

Padres | Brandon Morrow to throw this weekend

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 17:01:39 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Brandon Morrow (shoulder) is expected to throw a simulated game Saturday, June 27, or Sunday, June 28.

Fantasy Tip: This could be the final step before Morrow ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) begins a minor league rehab assignment. He should be stashed in NL-only and deep mixed fantasy leagues but FantasyScore owners should avoid using him in his first start or two immediately after he's activated from the disabled list.

Padres | Derek Norris shedding weight

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 15:48:47 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris began the season weighing 232 pounds. He said he currently weighs 220 pounds Friday, June 26, which is the lowest he has weighed since he was in high school.

Fantasy Tip: Norris ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) has done solid work in the counting stat department with 38 runs, nine home runs and 41 RBI. However, seasonal owners would love to see a little improvement to his .246 batting average and .294 on-base percentage. Regarding his weight loss, Norris's statistics have progressively dwindled monthly. Though, there may not be any correlation to his playing weight. Facing a left-handed hurler Friday, Norris is a high-end catcher option at FantasyScore.

Padres | Melvin Upton batting seventh vs. Arizona

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 15:20:51 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Melvin Upton Jr. is playing center field and batting seventh against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Robbie Ray Friday, June 26.

Fantasy Tip: Upton Jr. ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) is just 5-for-28 this season, and he is tough to rely on for fantasy purposes. His power-speed combo always presents upside, but he is nothing more than a high-risk flier for FantasyScore players Friday.
