Padres | Manuel Margot attracting interest

Tue, 24 Nov 2015 10:10:30 -0800

San Diego Padres OF Manuel Margot is drawing trading interest, but the Padres would only move him for a player or players with similar upside, according to sources. General manager A.J. Preller is "unlikely" to trade Margot, and a source said the odds were 80-20 against it.

Fantasy Tip: Margot is billed as the Padres center fielder of the future after they acquired him in a package for Craig Kimbrel a few weeks ago. It may be another year or two before we see him surface in the major leagues, but keeper and dynasty owners should have him on their radars soon.

Padres | Friars use Kimbrel to acquire prospects

Fri, 13 Nov 2015 16:54:34 -0800

The San Diego Padres traded RP Craig Kimbrel to the Boston Red Sox Friday, Nov. 13, in exchange for OF Manuel Margot, SS Javier Guerra, INF Carlos Asuaje and P Logan Allen, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: The Padres are looking for more pieces for the future, and Margot and Guerra headline this deal for San Diego as their potential starting center field and shortstop in a year or two. Keep those names tucked away in dynasty leagues. With Kimbrel and Joaquin Benoit dealt in recent days, who closes for San Diego now? They could add outside bodies, but as it stands right now, Kevin Quackenbush would be the favorite, with Brandon Maurer another possibility if he doesn't move to the starting rotation.

Padres | Ian Kennedy rejects qualifying offer

Fri, 13 Nov 2015 15:24:43 -0800

San Diego Padres SP Ian Kennedy rejected the San Diego Padres' one-year, $15.8 million qualifying offer Friday, Nov. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Kennedy's landing spot will have a significant impact on his fantasy value leading into the 2016 season. He has shown well in stretches, but cannot be started with confidence in all matchups, so make sure to be selective with who you start him against. Leaving PETCO Park is a hit to his fantasy stock, too.

Padres | Justin Upton headed to free agency

Fri, 13 Nov 2015 15:16:15 -0800

San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton rejected the San Diego Padres' one-year, $15.8 million qualifying offer Friday, Nov. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Coming off his third straight 20-home run season, Upton also scored 85 runs and posted 81 RBI. Just be careful not to overvalue the 28-year-old outfielder on draft day, as he projects as a mid-round contributor and not a top-tier option.

Padres | Ian Kennedy rejects offer

Fri, 13 Nov 2015 11:15:47 -0800

Free-agent SP Ian Kennedy (Padres) rejected the San Diego Padres' one-year, $15.8 million qualifying offer Friday, Nov. 13, according to a source. He will remain a free agent.

Fantasy Tip: Kennedy posted a 4.28 ERA and went 9-15 with a 1.29 WHIP and 174 strikeouts in 168 1/3 innings for the Padres in 2015. Much of his fantasy value for next season will depend on where he lands in free agency. Leaving the pitching-friendly environment of Petco Park might make him unattractive in all shallow mixed leagues.

Padres | San Diego interested in Ian Desmond

Wed, 11 Nov 2015 13:17:54 -0800

Free-agent SS Ian Desmond (Nationals) is of interest to the San Diego Padres, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Desmond has experienced a regression in batting average and OPS in four consecutive season, and he enters his age-30 campaign in 2016. He also failed to hit the 20-stolen base mark for the first time since 2010 last year. With his offensive prime likely in the rear-view mirror, be careful not to over value Desmond next spring.

Padres | Jose Pirela sent to Padres

Wed, 11 Nov 2015 09:16:43 -0800

New York Yankees 2B Jose Pirela was traded to the San Diego Padres in exchange for SP Ronald Herrera Wednesday, Nov. 11.

Fantasy Tip: Pirela was a sleeper entering the season and could fit into the second base mix with Cory Spangenberg and Jedd Gyoko. Pirela hit .325 at Class AAA last season and just .230 in 74 at-bats with the Yankees. He's more of an NL-only option, but he's one to watch in spring training.

Padres | Brandon Maurer will have chance to start

Tue, 10 Nov 2015 11:36:29 -0800

San Diego Padres RP Brandon Maurer will be given a chance to crack the starting rotation next season.

Fantasy Tip: Maurer was very useful out of the San Diego bullpen in 2015 and has some nasty stuff that could really translate well to a starting role. If he wins a rotation spot in spring training, he's certainly attractive in the late rounds as a flier to round out your starting fake staff.

Padres | Craig Kimbrel up for trade

Tue, 10 Nov 2015 09:42:26 -0800

San Diego Padres RP Craig Kimbrel is available via trade this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Kimbrel had his worst season as a pro with San Diego in 2015, sporting a 2.58 ERA and recording a career-low 39 saves in 59 1/3 innings. His cost might come down a smidge in fantasy drafts next season, but he should still be regarded as an elite closing option, even if he stays with the Friars.

Padres | Justin Upton, Ian Kennedy receive offers

Fri, 06 Nov 2015 14:46:03 -0800

San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton and SP Ian Kennedy were extended $15.8 million qualifying offers from the team.

Fantasy Tip: Upton posted his third consecutive 20-home run season, and he also scored 85 runs and drove in 81 RBI. Still, entering his age-28 season, Upton's name value might inflate his fantasy stock, and he should be viewed as a mid-round pick and not a top-35 selection. Since his breakout 2011 season, Kennedy owns a 4.19 ERA, a 4.06 FIP, a 1.32 and a 8.7 K/9, and he isn't an arm to trust outside of favorable matchups.

Padres | Ian Kennedy could receive offer

Wed, 04 Nov 2015 19:49:35 -0800

The San Diego Padres are reportedly leaning towards offering SP Ian Kennedy a qualifying offer, according to a club source. The offer would be a one-year deal worth $15.8 million. If he declines the offer, Kennedy would become a free agent and the team would receive a draft pick as compensation if he signs elsewhere.

Fantasy Tip: Kennedy went 9-15 with a 4.28 ERA over 30 starts in 2015, although it should be noted that he posted a 7.15 ERA during the first two months of the year before improving as the season progressed. He averaged more than a strikeout an inning and could be a back-of-the-rotation option in NL-only and deep mixed fantasy leagues next year.

Padres | Justin Upton to receive offer

Wed, 04 Nov 2015 19:30:30 -0800

The San Diego Padres will give OF Justin Upton a qualifying offer. However, he is expected to decline the one-year, $15.8 million offer and file for free agency. If he does not return to the team, the Padres will receive a compensatory pick in next year's draft.

Fantasy Tip: The 28-year-old Upton hit .251 with 26 home runs, 81 RBIs and 19 stolen bases in 150 regular-season games during the 2015 season. He is expected to be one of the most heavily pursued players in the free-agent market and will be one of the first outfielders selected in universal fantasy baseball drafts next spring.

Padres | Joaquin Benoit on the trade block

Wed, 04 Nov 2015 14:27:20 -0800

San Diego Padres RP Joaquin Benoit is available in the trade market, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Benoit's fantasy value depends on his role in the bullpen. He has a 1.98 ERA, a 0.91 WHIP and a 9.6 K/9 over the past three seasons, and he has 37 saves during the span. If Benoit lands in the closer role, he'll check out as a mid-tier reliever. As it stands, Benoit is a ratio stabilizer in deep mixed leagues who can vulture the odd win and save to roster.

Padres | Joaquin Benoit's option picked up

Tue, 03 Nov 2015 16:02:27 -0800

San Diego Padres RP Joaquin Benoit's $8 million option for the 2016 season was picked up Tuesday, Nov. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Benoit is the primary eighth-inning setup man and fantasy handcuff to Craig Kimbrel. There's really no reason to roster Benoit in a shallow mixed league unless Kimbrel is traded or injured before the 2016 season.

Thu, 29 Oct 2015 10:02:47 -0700
