  • Norris (shoulder, elbow) gets three hits
    Derek Norris (shoulder, elbow) went 3-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored in his return to the lineup Thursday.

    Advice: Norris missed a game with a hyperextended left shoulder and elbow, but clearly it's not affecting him at the plate. He should be fine moving forward. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:39 am
  • Solarte goes supernova on Dodgers
    Yangervis Solarte finished with a huge game in Thursday's 10-7 win over the Dodgers, going 4-for-5 with a solo home run, two doubles and three runs scored.

    Advice: Tight effort by Solarte, who played a key role in the Padres' come-from-behind win. He cracked a solo homer in the seventh to draw his team to within 7-6, then finished off the night's scoring with an RBI double in a four-run eighth. The strong performance boosted the 28-year-old infielder's season triple-slash to .267/.321/.428. He's also hit 12 homers and driven in 55. This is the first season in which Solarte's seen more than 252 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:52 pm

    Advice: Blanks has been bothered by Achilles issues for the past couple of seasons now. He attempted to make it back late last week by going out on a minor league rehab assignment, but apparently the pain is too much. The 28-year-old has appeared in just 44 games at the major league level dating back to the start of 2014. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:19 pm
