Padres' Matt Szczur: Starts in center Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Szczur started in center field and went 0-for-4 in Thursday's win over the Giants.

With Manuel Margot on paternity leave, Szczur got the nod against the left-handed Madison Bumgarner. The 28-year-old is slashing a meager .202/.343/.349 in 136 plate appearances, so he isn't more than a punt play in daily formats when he is penciled in the lineup. Franchy Cordero should get the start in center Friday against Jeff Samardzija, but Szczur should see one more start Saturday against Matt Moore before Margot returns to the team.

Padres' Matt Szczur: Seeing little playing time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Szczur is slashing .182/.351/.325 with two home runs in 98 plate appearances since joining the Padres in early May.

The lone bright spot for the 27-year-old is his 19.4 percent walk rate, which is more than double his career average. Even with Yangervis Solarte (oblique) on the disabled list since June 21, Szczur has not seen an increase in playing time, and has also struggled mightily this season as a pinch hitter (.582 OPS in 21 at-bats).

Padres' Matt Szczur: Could see playing time as fill-in
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Szczur is starting in right field and batting seventh in Wednesday's lineup against the Cubs, Bob Scanlan of Fox Sports San Diego reports.

Yangervis Solarte (oblique) was placed on the disabled list Wednesday, so Jose Pirela has moved to the infield to cover the keystone, opening up a spot in the outfield for Szczur. If this configuration sticks for the duration of Solarte's stay on the disabled list, then the 28-year-old would gain short-term NL-only value for some light pop.

Padres' Matt Szczur: Takes seat Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Szczur is out of the lineup Sunday against the Nationals.

Szczur had started the previous three games in center field following Manuel Margot's (calf) move to the disabled list, contributing one hit in nine at-bats. Though Franchy Cordero will receive the nod in center Sunday, Szczur still looks like the primary option at the position until Margot is able to come off the disabled list.

Padres' Matt Szczur: Returns to lineup Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Szczur (ankle) is in the lineup Saturday against the Diamondbacks.

Szczur was held out of the starting lineup for three days due to ankle soreness, but is set to return to action Saturday. Szczur will head into Saturday's matchup against an Arizona squad being led by the left-handed Robbie Ray with a .233 batting average and a .664 OPS.
