News: Venable is not in the Padres' lineup Wednesday, the Padres' official Twitter feed reports. Impact: The team is resting several regulars Wednesday, Venable among them. After getting off to a slow start, he has five hits in his previous three games, although he has yet to notch a home run or a steal this season after going 20/20 in 2013.(RotoWire, )

News: Venable went 2-for-3 for the second straight game against the Rockies on Tuesday. He scored a run and was also caught stealing in the 3-2 loss. Impact: The 31-year-old outfielder hasn't done much by way of fantasy contribution this season, batting .224 with no homers, two RBI, four runs and no stolen bases. While the lack of swipes is frustrating in intself, Venable has also struck out at least once in 11 of 13 games this season. If your bench is in need of warming, he makes for a great candidate right about now.(RotoWire, )

Impact: Fantasy owners won't benefit from a double dose of Venable, as Alexi Amarista gets the start in center field for Game 2.

News: Venable went 1-for-4 with a run scored during Sunday's victory at Miami. Impact: Venable has produced little after one week of the season, and perhaps his shuffle about the lineup is to blame. Through six games, he's occupied the seven, sixth, and second spots in the order, while manning both center and right fields. The most common iteration is batting sixth and starting in center, with the former not conducive to racking up runs. However, owners are relying upon him for stolen base production at the very least, and with four hits and one walk in 21 at-bats, no opportunities to swipe bases have come his way to date.(RotoWire, )
