Padres OF Will Venable heading in wrong direction at the plate
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(6/29/15) Much of the season for Padres platoon outfielder Will Venable has been marked by short hot streaks followed by short cold ones.
He is currently experiencing the latter.
Venable has just two hits in his last 13 at-bats and none in four of the last five games in which he has a plate appearance. He still boasts a decent slash line of .263/.325/.409 on the year.
Padres OF Will Venable gets three hits in loss to Braves
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(6/10/15) Padres outfielder Will Venable collected three hits during Tuesday night's 6-5 loss against the Braves.
Venable hit a home run, double and single during the game. His homer gave him five for the season and came on a 0-1 pitch in the third inning. Venable finished the game 3 for 5 and totaled two RBI and scored two runs for the Padres.
Venable had been in a bit of a slump before his stellar night, batting just .211 over his previous 10 games.
Venable is now hitting .273/.333/.447 for the season.
Padres CF Will Venable slugs fourth home run in win on Friday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(6/5/15) Padres center fielder Will Venable hit the first of his team's three home runs in the 6-2 win over the Reds on Friday. Venable launched his solo shot in the second inning to give the Padres an early 3-0 lead. He now has four home runs and 15 RBI on the season.
Venable, who also singled on Friday, now has three straight two-hit performances and is batting .272 on the season.
|2014 summary: Will Venable entered the season on the upswing created by the 20-20 campaign he had in 2013, but a glacially slow start wore out his welcome with his Fantasy owners. The Padres weren't enamored of his play either, as manager Bud Black sat him more frequently by midseason, and the August promotion of Rymer Liriano further ate into Venable's playing time. Though he played more sparingly in the second half, Venable did recover some of his productivity, hitting .261 with six home runs and seven stolen bases in 177 post-break plate appearances. |
Playing time status: With Matt Kemp, Justin Upton and Wil Myers entering the outfield picture, Venable will probably need a trade to get playing time.
2015 outlook: Though Venable's late-season rebound was encouraging, the crowded outfield situation certainly means a further reduction in playing time. His power/speed combination still makes him a compelling play in NL-only leagues, but even in those deep formats, he can probably be acquired via waivers.
