Description: San Diego left fielder Mark Kotsay has decided to retire at the end of the season. SOURCE: San Diego Union-Tribune
Insight: While never a star, Kotsay enjoyed a productive career as a role player for several teams including the Marlins, Padres, Red Sox and A's. His best season was probably in 2004 when he hit .314 with 15 homers for Oakland. In his prime, Kotsay was also an excellent defensive player with a penchant for gunning down runners at home plate.
 
6/28/2013 10:35:00 AM
Description: Padres outfielder Mark Kotsay only gets a spot start every now and then, but Friday would be the spot as he's a career .615 hitter (8-for-13) versus Miami hurler Ricky Nolasco.
Insight: Kotsay only has 82 at-bats all season, mainly in a pinch hitting role, but could find himself in Wednesday's starting lineup because of the favorable matchup. If he is, he could be worth a flier.

Description: Padres outfielder Mark Kotsay only gets a spot start every now and then, but Wednesday would be the spot as he's a career .615 hitter (8-for-13) versus Miami hurler Ricky Nolasco.
Insight: Kotsay only has 26 at-bats all season, mainly in a pinch hitting role, but he is batting .308 and could find himself in Wednesday's starting lineup because of the favorable matchup. If he is, he could be worth a flier.
 
4/14/2013 10:11:00 AM
Description: Scott Bair from the Associated Press is reporting that Padres outfielder Mark Kotsay has been battling a strained hamstring.
Insight: For now, it doesn't look like Kotsay will have to go on the DL. He's mostly been limited to pinch-hitting duty this season and shouldn't warrant any real fantast consideration at this point.
 
4/17/2012 3:05:00 PM
Description: Mark Kotsay (strained calf) is questionable for Tuesday's game against Colorado.
Insight: Kotsay "owns" Rockies starting pitcher Jamie Moyer, so if he does return he'd be a great play. In 33 at-bats against Moyer, Kotsay has collected 19 hits (.576) with a 1.462 OPS.
 
4/16/2012 8:14:00 PM
Description: Mark Kotsay (strained calf) has been activated from the disabled list.
Insight: Kotsay (.270, 3 HRs, 31 RBIs in 2011) could see some fairly regular playing time in the outfield while Carlos Quentin is out, but once Quentin's knee heals, Kotsay's fantasy value should be pretty minimal.
 
4/4/2012 11:30:00 AM
Description: Padres outfielder Mark Kotsay has a strained calf and will start the season on the disabled list.
Insight: The Padres have lost both Kotsay and Carlos Quentin and it has opened up an opportunity for Jeremy Hermida to make the San Diego Opening Day roster and start some games. It appears that the Padres outfield will consist of Cameron Maybin, Will Venable, Chris Denorfia and Hermida.
 
4/1/2012 2:24:00 PM
Description: Mark Kotsay has a strained calf. No decision has been made, but it's possible that he could start the season on the DL.
Insight: The Padres have certainly had trouble keeping their outfielders healthy this spring with Carlos Quentin going down with a knee injury and now Kotsay on the shelf with a bad calf. Kyle Blanks (.229, 7 HRs, 26 RBIs in 55 games last season) should get a shot in left field until Kotsay and Quentin are fully healed.
 
2/3/2011 6:43:00 PM
Description: The Brewers have signed Mark Kotsay to a major league contract. SOURCE: JON HEYMAN
Insight: The Brewers likely like his ability to play OF and 1B. He isn't expected to play a lot and NL-Only owners can do better.
 
2/2/2011 12:01:00 AM
Description: Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports.com reports the Brewers will sign Kotsay to a major league contract.
Insight: Kotsay hit .239 for the White Sox last season, and could be a left-handed bat off the bench for Milwaukee. (RapidDraft.com)
 
1/25/2011 11:01:00 AM
Description: Fox Sports.com reports the Brewers are looking into Kotsay.
Insight: Kotsay could be a fit as a left-handed bat off the bench for Milwaukee. He hit .239 with eight home runs over 359 at-bats for the White Sox in 2010. (RapidDraft.com)
 
9/27/2010 12:03:00 PM
Description: The Chicago Sun Times reports Kotsay does not anticipate returning to the White Sox next season.
Insight: Kotsay is hitting .238 for the White Sox this season, and his career as a major leaguer could easily be over. (RapidDraft.com)
 
8/18/2010 12:42:00 PM
Description: Kotsay went 3-for-5 with a home run, a double and two RBI against the Twins on Tuesday night.
Insight: Kotsay is hitting .237 with eight home runs and 28 RBI this season. (SportsBuff.com)
 
6/9/2010 9:46:00 AM
Description: Kotsay went 1-for-4 with a home run and two RBI against the Tigers on Tuesday night.
Insight: Kotsay is hitting .197 with six home runs and 15 RBI this season, and could be traded to a contender who needs a left-handed bat off the bench. (SportsBuff.com)
 
5/27/2010 11:58:00 AM
Description: Kotsay went 1-for-3 with a home run and two RBI against the Indians on Wednesday.
Insight: Kotsay has served as the White Sox DH in five of the past seven games, and has gone 8-for-25 since May 20 with two home runs, three doubles and five RBI. He is hitting .223 with five home runs and 11 RBI this season. (SportsBuff.com)
 
5/25/2010 2:14:00 PM
Description: Kotsay went 1-for-5 with a double against Cleveland on Monday night.
Insight: Kotsay served as the White Sox DH as Andruw Jones played RF and Carlos Quentin got the night off. Kotsay may begin to see a little bit more playing time if the team wants to trade him before the July deadline. (SportsBuff.com)
 
3/30/2010 10:50:00 AM
Description: Kotsay went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer and three RBI on Monday against the Angels.
Insight: Kotsay is hitting .426 this spring, and is expected to share DH duties with Andruw Jones this season. (SportsBuff.com)
 
12/29/2008 11:19:00 PM
Description: Mark Kotsay may return to the Red Sox, according to the Boston Globe.
Insight: Kotsay hit .276 with six homers and 49 RBI last season with the Red Sox and Braves. (SportsBuff.com)
