Giants | Frisco bullpen not getting it done

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 18:10:41 -0700

San Francisco Giants RPs Santiago Casilla and Sergio Romo have been struggling lately, particularly against left-handed hitters. Over the past 20 at-bats, lefties are hitting .328 against Casilla, and .450 off of Romo. RP Javier Lopez was used Monday, Aug. 3, against a lefty to start the ninth inning, but manager Bruce Bochy plans to stick with Romo setting up Casilla for now.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners in standard formats have been frustrated with the duo, but for now it appears to be status quo in San Francisco as Bochy lets each pitcher work through their problems rather than demote them to less stressful situations to iron out their issues.

Giants | Santiago Casilla to remain closer?

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 11:45:27 -0700

San Francisco Giants RP Santiago Casilla blew the save against the Atlanta Braves Monday, Aug. 3, which led to a loss for the Giants in the 12th inning. It was his fifth blown save of the year, but Giants TV announcer Duane Kuiper doesn't think manager Bruce Bochy will make a change in the ninth inning. Casilla is 4-2 this year with a 3.32 ERA and 27 saves, and he had converted seven straight saves before his blown save Monday. Kuiper doesn't think RP Hunter Strickland is a candidate to replace Casilla.

Fantasy Tip: If Casilla were to be demoted from ninth-inning duties, it'd likely be Sergio Romo, and not Strickland, moving into the role. Romo has experience closing with the Giants. If you're looking for saves and weren't able to land a reliever that moved into the role at the trade deadline, Romo might be your ticket for saves down the stretch if Casilla comes unraveled.

Giants | Santiago Casilla gets save No. 27

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 05:26:36 -0700

San Francisco Giants RP Santiago Casilla picked up his 27th save of the season Saturday, Aug. 1, against the Texas Rangers.

Fantasy Tip: Casilla has 27 saves in 31 chances this season, with a 2.89 ERA and a 9.40 K/9. Casilla has blown just two saves since the beginning of June, and he's an extremely safe fantasy commodity.

Giants | Santiago Casilla avoids disabled list

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 12:46:48 -0700

San Francisco Giants RP Santiago Casilla (arm) will not be placed on the disabled list, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Sergei Romo projects to receive the majority of save opportunities while Casilla is recovering from arm fatigue. Although, Javier Lopez is also in the equation. Saves chasers will want to target Romo first, as he has more fleeting value. Continue to check back for updates on Casilla.

Giants | Santiago Casilla out a few days

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 08:23:06 -0700

San Francisco Giants RP Santiago Casilla (arm) will be given a few days off due to arm fatigue, according to manager Bruce Bochy. RPs Sergio Romo and Javier Lopez will close out games based on matchups.

Fantasy Tip: Romo is the righty, has the experience and will probably see the bulk of the opportunities with Casilla out. He's likely gone in NL-only leagues, but if you're fetching for saves in mixed leagues, grab him.

Giants | Santiago Casilla implodes

Sun, 31 May 2015 17:20:41 -0700

San Francisco Giants RP Santiago Casilla blew his third save of the year, allowing four runs and three hits in 2/3 of an inning against the Atlanta Braves Sunday, May 31.

Fantasy Tip: Casilla has had back-to-back shaky outings, and his 1.48 WHIP is a little concerning. He isn't on the hot seat just yet, but another rough outing or two could change that in a hurry.

Giants | Santiago Casilla off to fast start

Fri, 10 Apr 2015 06:59:05 -0700

San Francisco Giants RP Santiago Casilla has allowed one hit and struck out three in three scoreless innings thus far. He is 3-for-3 in save chances.

Fantasy Tip: So much for the banter that Sergio Romo could steal some save chances. Romo and Casilla have pitched in three games over the last four days, including the last two days. Jeremy Affeldt could get the call in a save chance Friday if the team is reluctant for either of those two pitching three straight days so early.

Giants | Sergio Romo to see save chances?

Sat, 04 Apr 2015 12:22:40 -0700

San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy said RP Sergio Romo could be used in certain ninth-inning situations this season based on matchups, although he reiterated that RP Santiago Casilla is still the team's closer.

Fantasy Tip: This appears to be good news for owners who selected Romo as a handcuff option in fantasy baseball drafts. If Casilla gets off to a slow start this season while Romo thrives, he could easily regain San Francisco's closing job.

Giants | Santiago Casilla has foot contusion

Thu, 26 Feb 2015 11:13:40 -0800

San Francisco Giants RP Santiago Casilla (foot) suffered a foot contusion during workouts Thursday, Feb. 26, according to manager Bruce Bochy. Casilla will be fine.

Fantasy Tip: Casilla is a cheap saves gamble later in mixed drafts, but there's a good chance he'll be looking over his shoulder all year at Sergio Romo. In a best-case scenario, you would handcuff the two Gigantes relievers to each other.

Giants | Santiago Casilla the closer

Mon, 23 Feb 2015 10:58:11 -0800

San Francisco Giants RP Santiago Casilla will be the team's closer heading into the season, according to manager Bruce Bochy.

Fantasy Tip: This was expected to be the case all along. Casilla had a sparkling 1.70 ERA and 0.86 WHIP last year while recording 19 saves for the Gigantes last year. Sergio Romo, when healthy, is a threat to Casilla in the ninth, though, so it's best to handcuff the two if you can.
