Giants | Justin Maxwell out of Sunday lineup

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 14:12:33 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Justin Maxwell is not starting Sunday, July 5, against the Washington Nationals. OF Gregor Blanco is playing instead.

Fantasy Tip: Maxwell ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) looks like he's getting a regular night off because of Blanco's hot bat. Blanco ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has a .444 average and a .333 mark against right-handed pitchers, and the Nationals have Jordan Zimmermann going Sunday. Give Blanco a try in FantasyScore.

Giants | Nori Aoki scratched late

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 18:19:36 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Nori Aoki (undisclosed) was scratched from the lineup Tuesday, June 23, in advance of the game against the San Diego Padres. Aoki had missed time with a leg injury, but it's unclear if that's the cause of Tuesday's problem. OF Gregor Blanco will start in left field and lead off, OF Justin Maxwell will play right field and bat eighth against RHP Odrisamer Despaigne.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) will be a strong option due to his .345 on-base percentage, and his .299 batting average against right-handed pitchers. Maxwell ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) hits just .222 against righties, and he should be avoided.

Giants | Nori Aoki out Sunday

Sun, 21 Jun 2015 14:22:48 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Nori Aoki (ankle) is not in the starting lineup Sunday, June 21. OF Justin Maxwell is in the lineup and batting sixth. Aoki's injury also has moved 1B Brandon Belt to left field and C Buster Posey to first base. C Andrew Susac is catching.

Fantasy Tip: Aoki ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) should be removed from your lineup until his ankle has healed. Maxwell ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) hit a two-run homer Saturday so he has demonstrated some pop and could make a cheaper replacement for your lineup.

Giants | Justin Maxwell batting ninth

Wed, 17 Jun 2015 15:36:05 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Justin Maxwell is batting ninth and playing right field against Seattle Mariners SP Felix Hernandez Wednesday, June 17.

Fantasy Tip: Maxwell ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is riding a 6-for-40 run dating back to mid-May with a .490 OPS. Facing Hernandez isn't exactly an ideal matchup, either. Maxwell is a low-end option in NL-only formats, but he can be avoided without fear in all other leagues.

Giants | Angel Pagan not in lineup Sunday

Sun, 14 Jun 2015 13:03:02 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Angel Pagan is not in the starting lineup Sunday, June 14, against the Arizona Diamonbacks. OF Justin Maxwell is batting sixth and playing center.

Fantasy Tip: Pagan ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) has played in 16 straight games so he is getting a day off, according to manager Bruce Bochy. Maxwell ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is 2-for-15 in the last week and carries little if any fantasy value.

Giants | Justin Maxwell batting fifth

Thu, 11 Jun 2015 14:13:46 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Justin Maxwell is batting fifth and starting in right field against New York Mets SP Jon Niese Thursday, June 11.

Fantasy Tip: Maxwell ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) should be viewed as a risky source of cap relief by FantasyScore players Thursday. He has a .216/.275/.324 slash line over 40 palte appearances against southpaws this season, and he is currently riding an underwhelming 9-for-41 run. Still, there is upside in the lineup spot, so he is within flier territory for daily players.

Giants | Hunter Pence remains out

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 14:05:36 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence (wrist) remains out of the starting lineup Wednesday, June 10. OF Justin Maxwell is starting in right field and hitting eighth against New York Mets SP Matt Harvey.

Fantasy Tip: The longer Pence is out, the better the chances are that he goes back on the DL. Stay tuned and plan for the worst-case scenario if you own him. With Gregor Blanco (concussion) likely going to the DL, too, Maxwell ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) could return to a starting role in right field for the foreseeable future. He's merely a weak matchup play on FantasyScore, and you should avoid him at all costs against Harvey.

Giants | Justin Maxwell getting the start

Tue, 09 Jun 2015 15:41:50 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Justin Maxwell will start Tuesday, June 9, against the New York Mets. OF Gregor Blanco (undisclosed) was a late scratch.

Fantasy Tip: Maxwell ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) will get the call against RHP Noah Syndergaard, and he's likely to hit somewhere near the bottom of the order as Blanco was slotted for the eighth spot. Maxwell is hitting .247 against righties, with four home runs in 94 plate appearances, but he shouldn't be considered as anything more than a cheap flier.

Giants | Hunter Pence still out

Fri, 05 Jun 2015 12:48:01 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence (wrist) is not in the starting lineup against the Philadelphia Phillies Friday, June 5. OF Justin Maxwell is starting in right field and batting eighth Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Pence in all fantasy formats Friday, and continue to check back for updates on the severity of his injury and a return timeline. Maxwell ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) lands in flier territory due to his favorable matchup against opposing hurler Jerome Williams. Still, keep your expectations in check with Maxwell.

Giants | Hunter Pence not in lineup

Wed, 03 Jun 2015 10:49:28 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 3. OF Justin Maxwell is starting in right field and hitting seventh in the batting order against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano.

Fantasy Tip: Maxwell ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has very little fantasy appeal or upside, especially when facing a sometimes dominant Liriano. Look elsewhere on FantasyScore.
