(9/12/14) Padres outfielder Will Venable was held out of the starting lineup Friday night against the Diamondbacks. Venable suffered a back strain on Wednesday. He is hitting .222/.287/.318 line with six home runs, 27 RBI and nine stolen bases in 365 at-bats.
|Will Venable leaves game Wednesday with back strain |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(9/11/14) Padres outfielder Will Venable was removed from Wednesday's game due to a back strain, the team announced.
Venable was 0 for 1 and drew a walk before being removed. He hasn't delivered a multi-hit game since recording four of them in a row at the beginning of August. Venable owns a .222/.287/.318 line with six home runs, 27 RBI and nine stolen bases in 365 at-bats.
|Will Venable was a surprising second-half star in 2013. After batting .224 with 11 home runs and 32 RBI in 89 first-half games, Venable caught fire in the second half, hitting .315 with a .549 slugging percentage, .906 OPS, four triples, 11 home runs, 14 doubles, 21 RBI and 34 runs in 62 games. He added 13 stolen bases in the second half for good measure. Venable finished the season with career highs in batting average (.268), slugging percentage (.484), OPS (.796), home runs (22), RBI (53), runs (64) and tied a career high with eight triples. He also had 20-plus stolen bases for the fourth straight season. The main question beckons, however, was Venable's second-half surge a sign of things to come or an aberration? Venable could be the next Justin Ruggiano, who also enjoyed a breakout campaign at 30 years old but then regressed the following season. Fantasy owners are hoping for the opposite. Venable has more Fantasy value in Rotisserie formats, where he can be a mid-round selection, but leave him for the late rounds in Head-to-Head leagues.
