Eric Stults was knocked around at home by the Phillies Wednesday, allowing four earned runs over 4.1 innings on six hits while striking out just two. 

Stults is usually money in the bank at home, but not lately. He faces the Rockies at home Tuesday, and fantasy players should resist the urge to start him.

Cameron Maybin plans to play in the Dominican Republic this winter.

Injuries and a suspension have limited Maybin to just 267 at-bats over the past two seasons. The 27 year-old will try to rack up some at-bats in winter ball to prepare for next season. He has the raw tools to be valuable for fantasy, but There does not seem to be much of a chance of him putting it all together.

Rymer Liriano went 3-for-4 with a run scored and a stolen base in the Padres win against the Phillies on Tuesday. 

Liriano hasn't been much of an asset to the Padres when in the starting lineup in his first year in the big leagues, slashing .228/.294/.283 with one home run and five RBI through 92 at-bats. With only just over 10 games left in the season there is little chance he gains enough momentum to make him a fantasy consideration the rest of the way.

Alexi Amarista went 3-for-4 with a home run, double and two RBI in the Padres win against the Phillies on Tuesday. 

Amarista is now slashing .245/.273/.321 with one home run, seven RBI and five runs scored in the month of September as he continues to earn regular playing time at shortstop for the Padres. However, unless he starts to provide more in either the runs scored or RBI department, he is best served on the waiver wire outside of desperate situations.

Kevin Quackenbush allowed one run on a hit and a walk with a strikeout but finished the inning to earn his fourth save of the season for the Padres on Tuesday.

Quackenbush has now converted four of his five save chances since taking over the closer role while owning a 2.68 ERA and 1.07 WHIP through 50.1 innings out of the Padres bullpen. To add to his success, the Padres closer is maintaining a 53:18 K:BB rate in that stretch, which makes him worth owning over the final one and a half weeks of the regular season.

Ian Kennedy moved to 11-13 after allowing three runs on three hits and four walks with seven strikeouts over six innings in a win against the Phillies on Tuesday. 

Kennedy has now been on top of his game of late, but managed to out-pitch A.J. Burnett for his 11th win of the season He is now sitting on a 3.80 ERA and 1.32 WHIP through 31 starts this season while maintaining a solid 196:67 K:BB rate over 187.1 innings. As long as he continues to strikeouts batters at a high rate, even a few rough outings won't stop him from warranting a start every time he takes the mound. He will look to try and inch back to .500 when he takes on the Rockies on Monday.

Abraham Almonte said his ankle is improving and expects to be in the lineup Wednesday.

Almonte provides very little fantasy help and should only be rostered in NL-Only leagues.
