San Diego Padres

NL West

Fantasy Impact: The deal will be completed, pending physicals. Pham has belted at least 21 homers in his last three seasons and stole a career-high 25 bases in 2019. He slashed .273/.369/.450 with 21 home runs, 68 RBI, 77 runs and 25 stolen bases across 654 plate appearances. Pham will replace Hunter Renfroe in the outfield and figures to see everyday at-bats for a solid Padres lineup.

Fantasy Impact: The deal will be completed, pending physicals. Renfroe had minor foot surgery to remove a bone spur in September, but should be ready to go for spring training. He slashed .216/.298/.489 with 33 home runs, 64 RBI, 64 runs scored and five stolen bases across 494 plate appearances last season. Renfroe has some serious power, as he has belted at least 26 home runs the last three years. He should see everyday at-bats and flirt with 30-plus homers again in 2020.

Per Ken Rosenthal, Drew Pomeranz will receive $34 million from the Padres over the next four years, with a majority of that salary being paid in the final two years of the contract. Pomeranz will also receive an $8 million signing bonus. (Source: Ken Rosenthal on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Pomeranz had an excellent second half of 2019, posting a 1.96 ERA with 57 strikeouts and 10 walks over 36 2/3 innings of work. He will join a bullpen lead by elite closer Kirby Yates, meaning the road to fantasy relevance is a little unclear for Pomeranz. He is currently projected for a setup role, leaving him as an option in hold leagues with potential for saves if Yates misses any time in 2020.

The Brewers acquired pitcher Eric Lauer and infielder Luis Urias from the Padres in exchange for pitcher Zach Davies and outfielder Trent Grisham. (Source: Ken Rosenthal on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Lauer moves from pitcher-friendly Petco Park to hitter-friendly Miller Park. He owns a 8-10 record, 4.45 ERA, 1.40 WHIP with 138 strikeouts across 149 2/3 innings in 2019. Lauer's fantasy value will take a hit with the move to Milwaukee, he owned a 5.99 ERA, 1.49 WHIP and a 9.4 K/9 away from Petco Park. He will slot in at the back end of Milwaukee's rotation in 2020.

Fantasy Impact: Urias is a high-contact player not necessarily known for his power, but he is moving to a more hitter-friendly ballpark in Milwaukee and should have a clear path to playing time, with the Brewers expected to make him their everyday shortstop.

Fernando Tatis Jr. (back) is scheduled to resume baseball activities in December. (Source: Dennis Lin on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Tatis' rookie season ended in August due to a stress reaction in his lower back. The good news is his rehab is on the right track and he should be a full-go for spring training. It's possible Tatis and the Padres start discussing a long-term contract this winter as well.

Garrett Richards received a no-decision on Saturday against the Diamondbacks, allowing one run on one hit over 3 1/3 innings.

Fantasy Impact: The only hit he allowed was a solo homer to Christian Walker. Richards also struck out four and walked four as he struggled with his control. The 31-year-old made three starts this year in his return from injury and will hopefully have a normal off-season to get ready for 2020.

Joey Lucchesi fell to 10-10 on Thursday versus the Dodgers, spinning six innings of one-run ball while striking out six.

Fantasy Impact: Lucchesi allowed three hits and two walks as the Padres went on to lose 1-0. The lefty finishes the 2019 campaign with a 10-10 record, a 4.18 ERA, a 1.22 WHIP, and 158 strikeouts in 163 2/3 innings. The 26-year-old will be an interesting late-round starter come 2020 fantasy drafts.

Wil Myers was removed from Wednesday's game against the Dodgers since he was feeling light-headed. (Source: Jeff Sanders on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Myers also fainted over the weekend at Kirby Yates' charity event so it's possible the Padres shut him down for the year. The 28-year-old has hit .236 with 18 homers and 15 steals this season.

Francisco Mejia went 1-for-4 with a double, an RBI, and a run scored in the Padres' 6-4 loss to the Dodgers on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Mejia is now 5-for-14 since being activated off the injured list on September 17th. He has had a fantastic second half of the season and will be a top-10 fantasy catcher entering 2020.

Category: Game Recaps


Dinelson Lamet received a no-decision on Wednesday against the Dodgers, striking out 10 while giving up four runs on six hits over five innings pitched.

Fantasy Impact: He also issued two walks. Lamet's final start of the season was a lot like the rest of his, displaying a ton of strikeout upside despite giving up some runs. The 27-year-old started 14 games this year, posting a 4.07 ERA with 105 strikeouts in 73 innings. He's a name to remember for the end of 2020 fantasy drafts.

Eric Hosmer went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in the Padres' loss to the Dodgers on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Hosmer has been a bit better in his second year with the Padres but still isn't a fantasy difference-maker. The 97 RBI are likely a little fluky and he hasn't stolen a single base this year. He'll enter 2020 fantasy drafts as a depth option at first base.

Manny Machado went 1-for-3 with a walk in the Padres' 6-3 loss to the Dodgers on Tuesday night.

Fantasy Impact: Machado has had a disappointing finish to his first year in San Diego, hitting just two homers this month as his average has dropped about 15 points. Overall he's batting .252 with a .783 OPS this year.

Category: Game Recaps


Manuel Margot went 1-for-4 with a triple, an RBI, and a run scored in Tuesday's 6-3 loss to the Dodgers.

Fantasy Impact: Margot has had a decent second half, totaling nine homers and 10 steals since the beginning of July. He'll enter 2020 fantasy drafts as a sleeper for categories leagues.

Ronald Bolanos fell to 0-2 on Tuesday versus the Dodgers, giving up four runs on three hits over 3 2/3 innings pitched.

Fantasy Impact: Bolanos struck out four but also walked five in the outing. The 23-year-old now has a 6.62 ERA through four games this month and isn't really a fantasy option.

Ty France went 2-for-3 with a homer, a double, two RBI, and two runs scored in the Padres' 6-4 win over the D'Backs on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: France had a great season with Triple-A El Paso but hasn't had the same kind of success in the big leagues. Still, he has had some moments like today's performance. Overall he's batting .238 with seven homers in 65 games with the Padres.

Chris Paddack received a no-decision on Tuesday versus the Brewers, tossing five innings of one-run ball while striking out nine.

Fantasy Impact: Paddack allowed just one hit and one walk in what was his final start of the year. The 23-year-old finishes his rookie season with a 9-7 record and a 3.33 ERA in 140 2/3 innings pitched. Paddack also compiled a 153/31 K/BB ratio and will be an easy top-20 starter entering 2020 fantasy drafts.

Austin Hedges went 1-for-2 with a homer, two walks, two RBI, and two runs scored in the Padres' 10-8 loss to the Rockies on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: It was a nice game for Hedges, who might've lost his starting catching job this season. Francisco Mejia was on a tear at the plate before going down with an injury a couple of weeks ago. Hedges is still a great defender but Mejia will likely get the majority of starts in 2020, at least right away.

Cal Quantrill took the loss on Monday versus the Cubs, giving up eight runs on 10 hits over 4 1/3 innings.

Fantasy Impact: Qunatrill has now given up exactly eight runs in three straight starts. Obviously, he can't be trusted as a streaming option moving forward.

Taylor Trammell went 3-for-5 with an RBI as Double-A Amarillo beat Midland 6-2 in Game 3 of the Texas League semis.

Fantasy Impact: Trammell began the year as one of the best prospects in baseball but struggled for most of the season, batting .234 without much power. He landed in San Diego back in July as part of the three-team Trevor Bauer trade. We expect Trammell to make his big league debut at some point in 2020.
