Padres | Matt Kemp productive at plate

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 06:07:43 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Matt Kemp went 2-for-4 with one home run and three RBI against the Los Angeles Dodgers Friday, April 29.

Fantasy Tip: Kemp has been playing well recently with 10 hits, two home runs and five RBI over the last six games. Kemp should be used in all fantasy leagues as long as he is producing at the plate.

Padres | Derek Norris not bothered by rumors

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 19:33:57 -0700

Entering play Thursday, April 28, San Diego Padres C Derek Norris was batting just .145 with 20 strikeouts through his first 69 at-bats of the season. However, he is not willing to blame his slump on swirling trade rumors. "For me, it's just control what's controllable," Norris said. "You can't control trades. You can't control action or promotions, demotions. I think just focus on what's in front of you, competing each and every day, going out there and doing your job to the best of your ability."

Fantasy Tip: Despite occasional struggles on defense, combined with his slow start at the plate, it appears as though Norris is not in danger of losing playing time in the immediate future, especially with C Austin Hedges (hand) sidelined for at least one month due to hand surgery. Norris could have some value in NL-only and two-catcher leagues but should be avoided in most other formats for now.

Padres | Andrew Cashner struggles Wednesday

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 17:30:23 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner (1-2) allowed six runs (three earned) on four hits over 2 2/3 innings in a loss to the San Francisco Giants Wednesday, April 27, with four walks and two strikeouts. It was his shortest outing since July 5, 2013.

Fantasy Tip: Cashner continues to be a pitcher who is difficult to rely on in daily fantasy contests. He has not pitched beyond the sixth inning in any of his five outings this season and has only registered two quality starts. Cashner is scheduled to make his next start versus the Colorado Rockies Tuesday, May 3.

Padres | Wil Myers extends hitting streak

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 17:17:43 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Wil Myers extended his hitting streak to 12 games by homering against the San Francisco Giants Wednesday, April 27. He went 1-for-4 with three RBI and scored two runs.

Fantasy Tip: Myers is batting .303 with five home runs and 10 RBI through his first 89 at-bats this season. He is hitting .373 over the course of the streak and makes a decent value option at first base for daily fantasy games.

Padres | Robbie Erlin has throwing halted

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 12:04:11 -0700

San Deigo Padres SP Robbie Erlin (elbow) has been backed off from throwing, and the organization could require him to undergo further evaluations on the muscular strain in his left arm. Erlin might still begin throwing again during the series against the Los Angeles Dodgers that starts Friday, April 29, though.

Fantasy Tip: At this point, Erlin doesn't have value outside of cavernous mixed and NL-only formats, but these potential complications are still concerning. Continue to check back for updates, but it looks like Erlin could miss more than the minimal stay on the 15-day disabled list.

Padres | Austin Hedges out 4-6 weeks

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 11:31:40 -0700

San Diego Padres C Austin Hedges (hand) will have surgery to fix a fractured hamate bone in his hand Wednesday, April 27, and he's estimated to miss four to six weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Hedges is more of a defensive-minded catcher, and he backed up Derek Norris for most of the 2015 season. He showed some improvement with his bat this spring, but this is a notable setback for him, and he's unlikely to have any fantasy value at all this year.

Padres | Wil Myers nears career mark

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 21:38:27 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Wil Myers posted a single in the fourth inning of the game Tuesday, April 26, against the San Francisco Giants to push his hitting streak to 11 games. His career high streak is 12 games.

Fantasy Tip: Myers is off to a nice start this season for fantasy owners, and he is a valuable contributor in all formats and DFS play.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte running on treadmill

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 21:37:53 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Yangervis Solarte (hamstring) has started to run on an anti-gravity treadmill, as he makes his way back from a hamstring injury.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte can be helpful in NL-only fantasy leagues and deeper mixed formats when healthy, but once he returns you should give him a handful of games to prove his health and knock the rust off.

Padres | Cory Spangenberg resumes running

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 21:37:21 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Cory Spangenberg (quadriceps) has started running on an anti-gravity treadmill, as he makes his way back from a strained quadriceps muscle.

Fantasy Tip: With Spangenberg on the shelf it is Alexi Amarista, Adam Rosales and Jemile Weeks each seeing more at-bats. Spangenberg is only worth a look in deeper NL-only fantasy formats when healthy.

Padres | Manuel Margot hitting well

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 11:06:37 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Manuel Margot went 2-for-5 with a run scored for Class AAA El Paso Monday, April 25, and extended his hitting streak to nine games (15-for-36) to raise his average to .302.

Fantasy Tip: Margot was one of the headlining prospect names that came over to San Diego in the Craig Kimbrel trade. He hit .276 with six home runs and 39 stolen bases in two minor league stops last year and profiles as the Friars' future leadoff hitter. More power could develop with age. Margot could see a September call-up, but plan for him to make a much bigger fantasy impact in 2017.

Padres | Hunter Renfroe wearing out PCL pitchers

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 12:03:34 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Hunter Renfroe was named the Pacific Coast League Player of the Week Monday, April 25, after hitting a home run in each of his past four games. There are also scouts who believe he is ready for the majors.

Fantasy Tip: The 24-year-old outfielder has a .339/.381/.661 slash line to start the season with Class AAA El Paso with 12 runs, four home runs and 10 RBI. Cavernous mixed and NL-only owners should take note of Renfroe and monitor his potential promotion to San Deigo. A speculative add now isn't out of the question if you have room to stash him, either.

Padres | Two starters sitting for Padres

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 12:58:33 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris and 3B Adam Rosales are not in the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals SP Mike Leake Sunday, April 24. Brett Wallace will start at third base and is batting fifth, while C Christian Bethancourt will start at catcher and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Wallace has only one hit in 16 at-bats this season and should be avoided in all leagues. Bethancourt has gone 3-for-16 in limited playing time this season and is not a strong fantasy option.

Padres | Alexi Amarista to DL

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 04:44:14 -0700

San Diego Padres SS Alexi Amarista (hamstring) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Saturday, April 23, with a strained right hamstring.

Fantasy Tip: Amarista was a .333 hitter this season through eight games, but he has lost a starting job with the acquisition of Alexei Ramirez from the Chicago White Sox. Adam Rosales should get some at-bats with Amarista on the bench.

Padres | Cesar Vargas effective in debut

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 04:38:08 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Cesar Vargas allowed just one run and five hits in five-plus innings, with three strikeouts and three walks, in a 11-2 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals on Saturday, April 23. Vargas left the game with the score tied at 1-1.

Fantasy Tip: This loss was all on the bullpen and not on Vargas, who produced a solid outing. Vargas, who came from Double-A San Antonio, will probably see a few more turns with Robbie Erlin's strained elbow landing him on the DL. He merits time on your fantasy roster based on this performance, although you might want to be cautious of that weak-hitting Padres lineup.

Padres | Fernando Rodney picks up save

Sat, 23 Apr 2016 06:20:12 -0700

San Diego Padres RP Fernando Rodney pitched a scoreless ninth inning against the St. Louis Cardinals Friday, April 22, to pick up his third save of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Rodney has not allowed an earned run in any of his six appearances this season and has struck out seven batters in 6 1/3 innings. Rodney should have a solid amount of save opportunities moving forward and should be owned in all leagues.
