San Diego Padres

NL West

Garrett Richards threw 3.1 innings against the Dodgers on Monday, allowing one unearned run on four hits and one walk, while striking out four.

Fantasy Impact: Richards has now tallied 5.1 innings this spring without allowing an earned run. He's also struck out six while touching high-90s with his fastball. He has sleeper potential if he is able to stay healthy in 2020.

Brian Dozier singled in Cactus League action on Monday.

Fantasy Impact: Dozier is battling for the second base role in Padres camp this spring after signing a minor league deal in February. The 32-year-old has five hits -- all singles -- so far in 19 at-bats. He'll need to tap into that power that made him a fantasy asset earlier in his career to be worth a late-round flier in 2020.

Jason Vosler continued his hot start to spring training, singling in his only at-bat in the Padres' 14-2 loss to the Dodgers.

Fantasy Impact: Vosler is leading the Padres in OPS with a healthy 1.272 through 22 plate appearances thus far in spring. Overall, he is 9-for-20 with one homer, one steal, three doubles, and six RBI. His walk-to-strikeout ratio is a healthy 3:2. The 26-year-old posted an .890 OPS in 116 games in Triple-A last season so he's a story worth watching.

Eric Hosmer hitless on Monday

Tue, Mar 10th 2:59am EDT
By Steven Boysko

Eric Hosmer went 0-for-3 out of the cleanup spot in Cactus League action on Monday.

Fantasy Impact: Hosmer's OPS sits at an uninspiring .541 through 23 at-bats. He is seeing the ball well though as he's only struck out twice. The veteran could provide some power but he likely is only a depth option in deeper fantasy formats.

Manny Machado singled on Monday in the Padres' 14-2 drubbing at the hands of the Dodgers.

Fantasy Impact: This was Machado's second hit of the spring in 23 at-bats. Owners are surely hoping that .087 spring average is just an aberration and he can find his groove before Opening Day.

Category: Game Recaps

Tommy Pham went 0-for-3 with a strikeout as the DH in Monday's 14-2 loss to the Dodgers.

Fantasy Impact: Pham's spring batting average has dropped to .190 in 21 at-bats. He's struck out eight of those 21 at-bats, so clearly he's still working getting his timing going.

Fantasy Impact: Tatis participated in a full workout on Sunday, and is set to return to game action. Assuming he'll build up normally from here, he should be set to go for Opening Day.

Category: Injury Updates

Austin Hedges was hitless in three at-bats in Sunday's 6-0 loss to the White Sox, dropping his spring training batting average to .176.

Fantasy Impact: Ironically, Hedges' spring average of .176 actually matches his 2019 output in 102 games. Even if his elite defense earns him the starting catching gig in San Diego, he should be avoided for fantasy purposes.

Category: Game Recaps

Kirby Yates pitched a scoreless fifth inning in Sunday's 6-0 loss to the White Sox.

Fantasy Impact: Yates has only pitched two innings so far in spring training, but hasn't lost a step since leading the league in saves last year. He has yet to allow a hit while walking one and striking out four. He will be the first closer off the board in many leagues in 2020.

Chris Paddack allowed four earned runs on six hits in four innings of work in Sunday's 6-0 loss to Chicago

Fantasy Impact: Paddack had enjoyed a nice spring through two starts, but came back to Earth on Sunday. The White Sox tagged him for four earned runs including two homers. The good news is he faced 18 batters and did not issue a walk while striking out two. Paddack owns a 4.00 ERA through nine innings so far in spring.

Taylor Trammell tripled and scored in Saturday's 10-5 loss to the Diamondbacks

Fantasy Impact: Trammell entered as a defensive substitute in the sixth inning. He tripled and scored on Francisco Mejia's RBI flyout. So far through 22 at bats this spring, he sports a blistering 1.095 OPS.

Category: Game Recaps

Trent Grisham singled twice in Sunday's Cactus League loss to the White Sox.

Fantasy Impact: The two hits raised Grisham's spring training batting average to .360. He is undoubtedly starting to draw attention in fantasy circles. Early in spring as it is, Grisham's minor league record makes him an intriguing late-round flier.

Wil Myers triples in win

Sat, Mar 7th 6:13am EST
By Steven Boysko

Wil Myers went 1-for-3 with a triple in Friday's Cactus League action.

Fantasy Impact: Trade rumors have been swirling around Myers all winter and into the spring but it doesn't seem to be bothering him. He's leading the Padres in hits so far in spring training, going 9-for-22 (.409) with three HR.

Category: Game Recaps

Jurickson Profar singled twice and scored a run in the Padres' 4-3 win against Texas.

Fantasy Impact: Profar raised his spring average to .263 with the multi-hit effort. He is battling for the second base job, and at worst will provide some nice versatility options for new manager Jayce Tingler.

Category: Game Recaps

MacKenzie Gore pitched a clean inning in Thursday's Cactus League win over Seattle. He allowed no hits, no walks, and did not record a strikeout.

Fantasy Impact: Gore looked sharp in his spring debut with the big club. The delay in him debuting is likely a result of the Padres wanting to limit his workload. In all likelihood, Gore will not break camp with the Padres, but will instead start the season in Double-A.

Category: Game Recaps

Dinelson Lamet tossed three scoreless innings Thursday against the Mariners, striking out five and allowing one hit.

Fantasy Impact: Lamet was in complete control on the mound Thursday, mixing his pitches well. The knock on Lamet is his lack of pitch differentiation, but you can't argue with the results he's put up so far this spring.

Category: Game Recaps

Craig Stammen pitched a scoreless fourth inning in the Padres' 3-1 victory against the White Sox.

Fantasy Impact: Stammen has not allowed a run in three innings thus far in spring. The veteran is once again poised to contribute holds to fantasy owners this season after tallying 31 last year. He posted a 3.29 ERA in 82 innings in 2019, boasting an impressive 73:15 strikeout-to-walk ratio.

Category: Game Recaps

Edward Olivares got his seventh hit of the spring on Monday versus the White Sox.

Fantasy Impact: After going 6-for-8 and getting a hit in six straight games, Olivares went 0-for-3 in two games over the weekend, but was back at it Monday by going 1-for-1, while also chipping in his first stolen base of the spring for the Cactus League's first place team.

Category: Game Recaps

Adrian Morejon blanked the Nationals for 1 1/3 innings on his 21st birthday on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: Morejon looked sharp in his brief Thursday afternoon start, striking out both Anthony Rendon and Shohei Ohtani. While Morejon doesn't get the hype of fellow Padres pitching prospects MacKenzie Gore and Luis Patino, he is another young San Diego pitcher to keep on fantasy radars as he progresses through the system.

Luis Campusano was listed by as the Padres top power prospect entering the 2020 season. (Source: )

Fantasy Impact: Campusano swatted 15 homers and 31 doubles en route to posting a .509 slugging percentage at High-A Lake Elsinore last season. The catching prospect won the circuit batting title with a .325 batting average, displaying excellent plate discipline in taking 52 walks against 57 strikeouts. Given the sparse landscape of impact fantasy catchers currently in the big leagues, Campusano is an attractive option to stash in dynasty leagues as part of the next wave of offensive backstops.
