Fantasy Tip: Kelley could become a realistic option for NL-only managers in the second half of the season. However, expect the Friars to be very careful with his comeback.

Padres | Casey Kelly close to rehab assignment

Fri, 18 Apr 2014 15:56:37 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Casey Kelly (elbow) will throw in an extended spring game Monday, April 21, and he could start a rehab assignment in the minors if everything checks out after that.

Fantasy Tip: Kelly could become an option for the Friars' rotation this summer, especially if Josh Johnson (forearm) needs a second Tommy John surgery. Keep tabs on him if you're in an NL-only league, at least.

Padres | Josh Johnson to see doctor Tuesday

Thu, 17 Apr 2014 14:55:46 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Josh Johnson (forearm) will meet with Dr. James Andrews Tuesday, April 22, according to manager Bud Black. Andrews will check Johnson's ligaments, forearm flexor tendons and the back of his elbow.

Fantasy Tip: Many have likely moved on from Johnson at this point because of his injury history. If you're waiting, you'll have to wait a little longer. There looks like a decent chance he'll have to undergo Tommy John surgery for the second time in his career.

Padres | Chase Headley out again

Thu, 17 Apr 2014 12:32:20 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Chase Headley (biceps) remains out of the lineup Thursday, April 17, with a sore right biceps. 2B Alexi Amarista is starting at third base again.

Fantasy Tip: Amarista will be the main beneficiary at third base if Headley needs to go on the disabled list. Yonder Alonso has been taking grounders at the hot corner, too.

Padres | Huston Street perfect

Thu, 17 Apr 2014 06:03:17 -0700

San Diego Padres CL Huston Street is a perfect 5-for-5 in save opportunities this year and has yet to allow an earned run.

Fantasy Tip: He may be questionable for the game Thursday, April 17, after pitching three of the past four days and throwing 21 pitches yesterday.

Padres | Carlos Quentin takes live BP

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 18:31:21 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Carlos Quentin (knee) took batting practice for a third straight day Wednesday, April 16. However, he has yet to run due to the bone bruise in his left knee. Manager Bud Black has ruled out the possibility that Quentin will be ready for a minor-league rehab assignment this weekend.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners of Quentin wait and wait and wait. If you've had him before, you should be used to this. Quentin has so much talent, but he also has a propensity for injury which makes fantasy owners pull their hair out. It appears Quentin will not be back in San Diego until at least May now, so be patient.
