Michael King delivered a strong performance, allowing just one earned run on three hits and a walk while striking out nine over six innings in Wednesday's 2-0 loss to the Mariners.

Fantasy Impact: Despite the solid outing, King's effort wasn't enough to secure a win, as the Padres' offense failed to provide run support. This season, King has maintained a commendable 3.41 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP across 19 starts, showcasing his ability to consistently challenge hitters, evidenced by his 10.5 K/9 rate. His latest performance reinforces his reliability as a fantasy option, particularly in leagues valuing strikeouts and ERA. However, his win potential may be hampered by the Padres' sporadic run support, as seen in this outing.

Fantasy Impact: Campusano is back after being activated from the injured list Saturday, starting behind the plate at catcher and batting ninth against the Diamondbacks Sunday.


Matt Waldron turned in a middling performance in Saturday's 7-5 loss to the Diamondbacks.

Fantasy Impact: He allowed three earned runs on five hits and two walks while striking out six over six innings. Despite this outing, Waldron's season ERA slightly increased, but his overall metrics like a 3.61 ERA and 1.18 WHIP still paint the picture of a reliable starter in most fantasy formats. His 8.4 K/9 ratio continues to offer decent strikeout potential, though his win-loss record remains unimpressive. Fantasy managers should view Waldron as a solid middle-of-the-rotation option, particularly in formats that reward innings pitched and strikeouts, but temper expectations on his impact in the wins column.

Ha-Seong Kim went 3-for-5 with two doubles and an RBI in the Padres' 7-5 loss to the Diamondbacks.

Fantasy Impact: His performance marked a bright spot in an otherwise disappointing game for San Diego. Despite a season batting average of just .228, Kim's multi-hit effort shows he still has the potential to contribute significantly in fantasy lineups, especially in formats that value extra-base hits. However, his inconsistent production this year suggests he remains a risky play. Fantasy managers should consider him a matchup-dependent option, leveraging his ability to contribute across multiple categories when the conditions are favorable.

Luis Arraez went 2-for-5 with two runs scored in the Padres' 7-5 defeat to the Diamondbacks.

Fantasy Impact: While Arraez didn't contribute any RBIs or extra-base hits, his ability to get on base and score remains a bright spot. Maintaining a .315 average over 88 games, Arraez continues to be a reliable source of batting average and runs for fantasy teams, though his lack of power and modest RBI totals limit his ceiling in standard formats. His excellent strikeout rate and consistent hitting make him a valuable asset in points leagues and formats that reward contact hitting.

Randy Vasquez delivered a solid performance, allowing two earned runs on six hits and one walk while striking out six over 6 1/3 innings in Friday's 10-8 victory over the Diamondbacks.

Fantasy Impact: Despite the Padres' high-scoring win, Vasquez's season-long stats—highlighted by a 4.66 ERA and a 1.60 WHIP—continue to paint the picture of a pitcher struggling with consistency. His 5.9 K/9 rate and high BABIP (.358) suggest that he's not missing many bats and might be experiencing some bad luck on balls in play. Fantasy managers should view Vasquez as a risky play, primarily in deeper leagues or as a streaming option, given his current form and underlying metrics.

Jackson Merrill played a key role in the Padres' 10-8 victory over the Diamondbacks, contributing significantly with his bat.

Fantasy Impact: Merrill went 1-for-4 with a triple and three RBI. This performance underlines his growing importance in the Padres' lineup, especially in clutch situations. With a season batting average of .289 and 46 RBI through 88 games, Merrill continues to show promising development. His ability to drive in runs and hit for extra bases, evidenced by his 12 homers and now two triples, makes him a valuable asset in fantasy lineups, particularly in formats that reward extra-base hits and RBI. While his strikeout rate remains a concern, his consistent run production and improving power numbers suggest a positive trajectory for the rest of the season.

Jurickson Profar went 1-for-4 with a home run and an RBI in the Padres' 10-8 victory over the Diamondbacks.

Fantasy Impact: His solo shot contributed to the high-scoring affair, marking his 13th homer of the season. Profar's performance this year has been robust, boasting a .316 batting average and a .389 wOBA, indicating his consistent ability to get on base and drive in runs. With 57 RBI and 51 runs scored over 90 games, he remains a valuable asset in fantasy lineups, especially given his power and on-base skills. His walk and strikeout rates show a disciplined approach at the plate, enhancing his reliability as a fantasy option.

Manny Machado went 4-for-5 with a home run, a double, three runs scored, and two RBI in the Padres' 10-8 win over the Diamondbacks.

Fantasy Impact: This standout performance underscores a season where Machado has been trying to boost his .270 average and add to his totals of 12 homers and 49 RBI. His multi-hit game, including key extra-base hits, should reassure fantasy managers about his potential to contribute significantly in power categories and run production. While his strikeout rate remains a concern, nights like this highlight his ability to impact games and should keep him firmly in fantasy lineups.
