Fantasy Tip: Norris ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has really struggled this season, and he has been a major disappointment for fantasy owners. He carried a .233 batting average with a respectable 11 home runs and 45 RBI into the All-Star break, but he has emerged with just two home runs and nine RBI since. Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) owns a .197/.240/.283 slash line and is nothing more than a desperation play at FantasyScore Thursday.

San Diego Padres 2B Jedd Gyorko is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Aug. 27. 2B Spangenberg is starting at the keystone position and batting second against Washington Nationals SP Joe Ross Thursday.
Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Gyorko ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) in all fantasy formats Thursday. He is having a better second half with seven home runs and 23 RBI over his last 34 games. Owners in deep mixed leagues looking for help in those two categories could take a risk on Gyorko. Spangenberg ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is a potential low-priced flier for FantasyScore contests Thursday, but his upside is limited.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Kemp ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) in all fantasy formats Thursday. The veteran has turned it on with seven home runs, 31 RBI and a .306/.366/.522 slash line over 36 games since the All-Star break. Jankowski ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is 5-for-13 to start his career, and hitting first in the lineup makes him a potential low-priced flier for FantasyScore players Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Since the All-Star break, Ross ($7,900, 15.8% of cap) is 3-2 with a 3.59 ERA through eight starts. He will make his next appearance Monday, Aug. 31, against the Texas Rangers.
Wed, 26 Aug 2015 21:27:56 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Even after tonight's performance, Upton ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) is batting just .213 with seven home runs away from Petco Park this season. At home, he is hitting .306 with 15 home runs and 40 RBIs.
Wed, 26 Aug 2015 20:57:02 -0700
Fantasy Tip: If all goes well, Myers ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) could return to the San Diego lineup next month. He should continue to be stashed in deeper fantasy leagues.

San Diego Padres 1B Yonder Alonso is not in the lineup against Washington Nationals left-handed SP Gio Gonzalez Wednesday, Aug. 26. C Derek Norris moves to first base, while C Austin Hedges is behind the plate and is batting seventh.
Fantasy Tip: Norris ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) isn't a bad FantasyScore click against the lefty tonight. He's hitting .289 (28-for-97) against southpaws this season. You should avoid Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap), who has really struggled at the plate all season in his rookie year.
Wed, 26 Aug 2015 14:10:08 -0700
San Diego Padres OF Melvin Upton Jr. is starting in center field and hitting second against Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez Wednesday, Aug. 26. OF Travis Jankowski will start on the bench against a lefty.
Fantasy Tip: Upton ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) and Jankowski ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) are basically locked into a platoon in center field now, with Jankowski gaining the strong side of the platoon against righties. Both outfielders have plenty of speed but not much power, and Jankowski's upside is brighter for fantasy owners. Upton remains a low-end outfield option on FantasyScore against a lefty tonight. He's hitting just .217 (10-for-46) with two home runs against them this year.
Wed, 26 Aug 2015 11:43:56 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Will Myers ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) ever return to the Friars lineup again this year? The Padres are holding out hope he'll return next month, but if you don't have the room on your shallow mixed roster, don't feel bad cutting him. He hasn't played since June 13, and he's unlikely to make much of a fantasy impact in any format with the regular season winding down.
Tue, 25 Aug 2015 22:38:51 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Gyorko ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has powered up with three doubles, four homers and 13 RBIs over the past 11 games since Aug. 10, raising his batting average 10 points. At this price level he is worth a look in FantasyScore until he cools off.
Tue, 25 Aug 2015 13:31:22 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Jankowski ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) has a .556 mark with three RBIs in his first week of action, but he largely hits against right-handed pitching. This will likely stay the same even if Jankowski's bat stays hot, but it's worth keeping an eye on this to see how much time Jankowski takes away from OF Melvin Upton.
Tue, 25 Aug 2015 13:29:04 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Norris ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) may need a game or two to get his bat back in line, especially with a wrist injury. Don't go after him on FantasyScore until later in the week, if you can help it.
Tue, 25 Aug 2015 13:23:43 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Gyorko ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) actually has a fairly warm bat over the past week (.308) and against Nationals SP Stephen Strasburg (.286), which likely accounts for his inclusion in the lineup.
Mon, 24 Aug 2015 06:28:09 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Norris ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is a matchup play on FantasyScore with big power in a spacious park.
Sun, 23 Aug 2015 20:03:15 -0700
Fantasy Tip: With Norris ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) sidelined, Austin Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) should continue to start and could be worth a look if you are willing to accept minimal production at FantasyScore in exchange for substantial cap relief.
