San Diego Padres

NL West

Manny Machado was 1-for-3 with a single and a run scored on Wednesday. He also struck out once.

Fantasy Impact: Machado was taken out of the game due to the large deficit the Padres were facing so no need to worry about that. He and the Padres open a series against Colorado on Thursday.

Fernando Tatis was hitless with two strikeouts prior to his removal from Wednesday's game.

Fantasy Impact: Not to worry, the removal was likely due to how far behind the Padres were and not injury related. Tatis remains the top fantasy asset moving forward.

Blake Snell managed to go just four innings on Wednesday, allowing seven earned runs on seven hits and four walks while striking out just one batter.

Fantasy Impact: Snell continued to struggle with his command in this one. He often put himself in tough counts which simply made it harder for him to get going. Snell's ERA is now at 5.44 on the year and is no longer a player that needs to be rostered.

Jake Cronenworth finished the day 2-for-4. While his two hits were just singles, he did tally two huge RBIs and a run scored in the fifth inning.

Fantasy Impact: Cronenworth is now hitting .277 on the year and remains a solid fantasy asset although he has cooled off as of late.

Adam Frazier went 2-for-5 on Tuesday, singling twice and scoring twice.

Fantasy Impact: These are the type of numbers you expect with Frazier. He isn't going to hit the ball out of the park but his ability to consistently get on base in front of an elite lineup in San Diego make him super valuable.

Mark Melancon had an easy 1-2-3 ninth on Tuesday, striking out one batter and getting through the three batters in just nine pitches.

Fantasy Impact: Melancon now has 31 saves on the year with a respectable 2.05 ERA.

Chris Paddack went six innings on Tuesday, allowing three earned runs on nine hits and one walk while striking out six.

Fantasy Impact: Paddack earned his seventh win of the year while lowering his ERA to 5.13 on the year with this performance. His next start will come against Colorado this weekend.

Yu Darvish went five innings on Sunday, allowing four earned runs on five hits and a walk. He also struck out six batters.

Fantasy Impact: Darvish now has an ERA of 3.27 on the year, and has seemingly just not been the same pitcher since the "sticky stuff" crackdown in mid-June. Darvish owners shouldn't panic just yet, but expectations have to be lowered.

Ken Rosenthal and Dennis Lin of the Athletic reports that San Diego Padres first baseman Eric Hosmer has resurfaced in recent trade discussions. (Source: Ken Rosenthal on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Hosmer is owed $59 million over the next four seasons and has limited no-trade protection this year. The Padres have other first-base options, including Jake Cronenworth and Jurickson Profar. San Diego traded for All-Star second baseman Adam Frazier and would shift Cronenworth from second to first if Hosmer is dealt. “To trade Hosmer, the Padres likely would have to attach significant prospect value,” per The Athletic. The 31-year-old has struggled this season, slashing .265/.327/.378 with eight home runs, 49 RBI, 34 runs scored, and five stolen bases over 93 games. Stay tuned.

Ryan Weathers was great on the mound. Through his four shutout innings he allowed just two hits and three walks while striking out four.

Fantasy Impact: Weathers added to his impressive showing on the mound by also launching a ball over the fence to give the Padres a 2-0 lead. Weathers may have just been making a spot start, but he certainly made his case for more starting work moving forward.

Trent Grisham tallies two hits

By Ethan Biddle

Trent Grisham went 2-for-5 on Friday while also tallying an RBI on the day. He also struck out twice.

Fantasy Impact: Since moving into the leadoff spot, Grisham has found a rhythm and has become that much more valuable in fantasy. He should remain in lineups in this high value spot.

Tommy Pham was just 1-for-5 on the day, but his sole hit was a big one. Pham's homer opened the scoring for the Padres in the first inning.

Fantasy Impact: Pham is now hitting .266 on the year and will look to continue rolling on Saturday against Miami.

Joe Musgrove went six innings on Friday, allowing two earned runs on six hits and one walk. He also struck out four batters.

Fantasy Impact: Musgrove's ERA is now at 3.13 on the year and earned his sixth win. His next start will likely come against Colorado next weekend.

Austin Nola (knee) went 0-for-3 with two walks in his return from the injured list on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: Nola has been out since late May but is worth picking up if any fantasy managers are desperate for catching help. He was off to a slow start before going down this year, but his 2020 was noticeably better.

Jurickson Profar was 2-for-4 on Thursday with two RBIs while getting on base three times with two hits and a walk.

Fantasy Impact: Profar is now hitting .239 on the year and has begun to find a rhythm as of late. He'll look to keep rolling and secure a more consistent spot in the Padres lineup.

San Diego pitcher Dinelson Lamet (forearm) is scheduled to throw live batting practice in the next couple of days. (Source: Jim Duquette on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Lamet (forearm) was placed on the 10-day injured list on June 27 and continues to make progress in his recovery from right forearm tightness. He will throw live batting practice in the upcoming days. “He (Lamet) has a live BP session in the next day or two and then likely a rehab stint,” said manager Jayce Tingler. Barring a setback, the Padres are hoping to have Lamet back by the beginning of August. The 29-year-old will be used in “shorter stints” once he returns to the rotation. Fantasy managers should continue to stash Lamet as he could have an impact in the final two months of the season. The Padres right-hander owns a 3.67 ERA, 1.40 WHIP, and a 38:11 K: BB across 34 1/3 innings in 2021.

Fantasy Impact: The lefty reliever didn't wind up missing much time due to forearm inflammation. He'll return to a high-leverage setup role in front of Mark Melancon.

Jorge Mateo went 1-for-3 after replacing teammate Manny Machado in the Padres' blowout win. Mateo would total one run scored and one RBI on his solo home run in the ninth inning.

Fantasy Impact: It was a nice day for Mateo, but a crowded infield makes it hard to have him anywhere near fantasy lineups. He could carry some value if Machado or anyone else in the Padres' infield went down.

Wil Myers went 3-for-6 on the day, with his biggest hit of the day being a grand slam in the second inning of the ball game. Myers would total 7 RBIs, three runs scored, and two strikeouts on the day as well.

Fantasy Impact: Myers is now hitting .259 on the year, and while this day is great it's still hard to trust a guy who's been up and down this entire season. He can be started if you really need it.

CJ Abrams suffered a fractured left tibia as well as a sprained left MCL. He's been out since June 30 and was officially diagnosed with the injuries on Sunday. (Source: Jon Heyman on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Abrams, the Padres No. 2 prospect, has had a very solid year in Double-A, hitting .296 while playing both shortstop and second base at an elite level. He'll hope for a speedy recovery and will likely return in time for Spring Training next season.
