Tommy Pham News
San Diego Padres outfielder Tommy Pham and catcher Victor Caratini are getting the day off on Thursday. Pham has been slumping to start the season, though he's picked up a hit in three of his last four games. Caratini has caught five of the team's last six games and will get a breather. Jurickson Profar will get the start in left, with Luis Campusano behind the plate.
San Diego Padres outfielder/first baseman Wil Myers (knee) will make his return to the lineup for Friday's game against the Dodgers. Fellow outfielder Tommy Pham is taking a seat on the bench for the opening game of the series. Myers missed three games due to patellar tendinitis in his right knee- though fantasy managers will be able to get him back into their own lineups, a great development considering his 1.071 OPS and 11 RBI in 13 games to start the season. Pham-on the other hand- is in the midst of a slump and will cede the left-field duties to Jurickson Profar.
San Diego Padres outfielder Tommy Pham is not in the starting lineup for Thursday's game against Mitch Keller and the Pittsburgh Pirates. Jurickson Profar is shifting over to cover left field in the game while Tucupita Marcano is getting the start in right field. Pham is off to a slow start to the year. Through 13 games, he's slashing .143/.302/.143. He's yet to hit an extra-base hit and has just two RBI. His plate discipline has remained strong as he has eight walks and only six strikeouts. Expect to see him back in the lineup on Friday against Walker Buehler and the Los Angeles Dodgers.
In his first year with the Padres, outfielder Tommy Pham had a brutal season primarily due to a broken hamate bone which kept him out from mid-August until the last week of the season. In just 125 plate appearances, Pham posted a mediocre .211/.312/.312 line with three home runs and 12 RBI. Despite the results, other than a large launch angle decline, Pham's power and plate discipline metrics essentially remained consistent with his solid 2017-2019 campaigns. In addition, prior to 2020, for three straight seasons, Pham hit at least 21 home runs while also stealing at least 15 bases. Further, he was one of only nine players to hit more than 20 HR and steal more than 20 bases in 2019, despite battling a number of injuries that year also. Given the hamate injury, the very small sample size, and the fact that Pham also tested positive for COVID-19 prior to the season, it would be hard to put much stock in his 2020 performance. In light of consistent production in his three prior seasons and underlying hitting metrics, a rebound for Pham is likely. With an ADP of 120, Pham makes for a great value pick in 2021. If healthy, Pham should reward managers with a 20-20 season and a batting average above .270 (in line with his 2017-2019 campaigns) hitting in a potent Padres lineup.
