Giants | Santiago Casilla struggles in non-save situation

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 23:51:11 -0700

San Francisco Giants RP Santiago Casilla surrendered three runs on three hits in one inning of work against the Oakland Athletics on Tuesday, June 28. He also walked two and struck out one.

Fantasy Tip: Casilla, who hadn't worked since Friday, entered the game with the Giants trailing 10-9 and let the A's build a four-run lead; the Giants would lose, 13-11. That broke a string of six straight scoreless outings, during which Casilla was 5-for-5 on save opportunities. He's obviously not an airtight option as a closer, but the Giants seem willing to work through these hiccups.

Giants | Cory Gearrin notches save

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 19:37:58 -0700

San Francisco Giants RP Cory Gearrin picked up his second save of the season, allowing one run on one hit over an inning against the Tampa Bay Rays Saturday, June 18. Gearrin filled in for RP Santiago Casilla, who was placed on the paternity list Friday, June 17.

Fantasy Tip: Gearrin isn't a must-add player with Casilla due back in a few days, but file his name away in case Casilla falters or suffers an injury.

Giants | San Fran bullpen will play the matchups

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 15:06:26 -0700

The San Francisco Giants will play the matchups with their bullpen with RP Santiago Casilla on the paternity list, manager Bruce Bochy said Friday, June 17.

Fantasy Tip: Look for Cory Gearrin and Hunter Strickland to see the save chances, and they're both worth ownership for saves starved teams. It's a fleeting opportunity, though.

Giants | Santiago Casilla notches save

Sun, 12 Jun 2016 23:26:02 -0700

San Francisco Giants RP Santiago Casilla pitched two-thirds of an inning Sunday, June 12, for his 13th save of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Casilla came under fire after manager Bruce Bochy said he'd use matchups in save situations more often. However, Casilla should still see most of them. His owners can breathe a little easier, but Hunter Strickland should be handcuffed to him.

Giants | Santiago Casilla still best closing option

Sat, 11 Jun 2016 14:47:47 -0700

San Francisco Giants RP Santiago Casilla is still the best option to close games, according to manager Bruce Bochy. However, Bochy said that he will go with matchups when the opportunity is there.

Fantasy Tip: Casilla is starting to lose his grip on the closer gig as he has allowed four runs in 3 2/3 innings this month. Earlier this week, Casilla and Javier Lopez were called upon for one out each in the ninth inning before Hunter Strickland nailed down the final out for the save. Casilla is 12-for-16 in saves, and Strickland is coming on strong. We're not closing the door on Casilla yet, but if Strickland is available in your league, you should handcuff the two.

Giants | Santiago Casilla picks up another L

Fri, 10 Jun 2016 23:19:21 -0700

San Francisco Giants RP Santiago Casilla allowed a ninth-inning home run to Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner to break a 2-2 tie. It was his second loss in the team's last three games.

Fantasy Tip: More trouble for Casilla, who now has a blown save and two losses in his last four appearances. Manager Bruce Bochy gave Casilla a vote of confidence after the game, indicating he's their closer, but the veteran has made six outings since last recording a save. It might be time to get a little nervous.

Giants | Santiago Casilla loses in extras

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 23:05:04 -0700

San Francisco Giants RP Santiago Casilla gave up two runs on three hits in 1 1/3 innings against the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday, June 7. He was saddled with his first loss of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Casilla pitched a clean ninth but could only retire one of the five batters he faced in the 10th, departing after allowing a two-run single to Xander Bogaerts. It hasn't been a great stretch for Casilla, whose ERA has jumped from 1.74 to 2.74 in his last two outings while picking up a blown save and a loss, but there's no sign Bruce Bochy is considering a change at this stage.

Giants | Santiago Casilla unable to keep lead

Thu, 02 Jun 2016 05:16:09 -0700

San Francisco Giants RP Santiago Casilla allowed one run on one hit in one inning against the Atlanta Braves Wednesday, June 1, to suffer his fourth blown save of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Casilla has pitched over the last month but has allowed an earned run in two of his last five appearances. He should keep his closer job for the time being, but a change could be made if he struggles in a few more games. Hunter Strickland likely would be next in line if Casilla loses the job.

Giants | Cory Gearrin grabs save in rare chance

Sun, 15 May 2016 05:03:09 -0700

San Francisco Giants RP Cory Gearrin pitched a scoreless ninth inning to record his first save of the season during the Giants' 5-3 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks Saturday, May 14. RP Santiago Casilla needed a rest day, which opened the door for Gearrin.

Fantasy Tip: Casilla doesn't have a rock-solid hold on the closer role, as he has blown three saves already this season, and Javier Lopez collected a save for the Giants Thursday, May 12. With Casilla picking up the save Friday, May 13, three different relievers have registered a save in three consecutive games for San Francisco. For now, continue to hold Casilla and view him as the No. 1 saves candidate in the bullpen, but this could become a committee at some point, if it hasn't already. Gearrin, Lopez and Hunter Strickland are all potential grabs in deep leagues for save chasers.

Giants | Santiago Casilla available to close Friday

Fri, 13 May 2016 17:32:49 -0700

San Francisco Giants RP Santiago Casilla is available to close against the Arizona Diamondbacks Friday, May 13, even though he was pulled during a save situation versus the St. Louis Cardinals Thursday, May 12, according to manager Bruce Bochy.

Fantasy Tip: Casilla's grasp on the ninth-inning role was shaky entering the 2016 season, so it wouldn't be surprising to see the Giants turn to Hunter Strickland to close games down the line. Strickland should be rostered in NL-only and deep mixed fantasy leagues and by owners who are desperate for saves. Sergio Romo (forearm) could also be considered for the closer's role but he is currently on the disabled list.
