Giants | Justin Maxwell remains in lineup

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 14:10:47 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Justin Maxwell is starting in right field and hitting sixth in the batting order against Colorado Rockies SP Eddie Butler Friday, April 24.

Fantasy Tip: Maxwell ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has provided a spark for this offense in the last week, and he's started the last three games. He'll be an under-the-radar option at FantasyScore tonight, but it could pay off while starting at hitter-friendly Coors Field.

Giants | Justin Maxwell with third straight start

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 10:43:48 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Justin Maxwell is starting in right field Thursday, April 23, against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Fantasy Tip: Maxwell ($1,600, 3.2% of your cap) is making his third straight start over OF Gregor Blanco. Maxwell has an average .280-1-4 line leaves a bit to be desired in a low-end flyer on FantasyScore. Blanco is losing playing time and should be avoided altogether.

Giants | Gregor Blanco sitting vs. lefty

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 15:57:58 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Gregor Blanco is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 22. OF Justin Maxwell is starting in right field and hitting fifth in the batting order against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw.

Fantasy Tip: Maxwell ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) broke through with a home run and triple in the team's win Tuesday night. He's a mediocre FantasyScore choice, at best, against Kershaw, though. Maxwell has hit just .236 (78-for-331) in his career against lefties.

Giants | Justin Maxwell batting seventh

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 17:30:07 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Justin Maxwell is starting in right field and batting seventh for manager Bruce Bochy Tuesday, April 21, against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Fantasy Tip: Maxwell ($1,600; 3.2% of cap) could be a cheap source of offense in FantasyScore, as it won’t take a lot of production to meet salary expectations. Plus, his inclusion in the lineup will allow you to load up on studs at other positions.

Giants | Gregor Blanco not playing

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 15:38:04 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Gregor Blanco is not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies left-handed SP Tyler Matzek Wednesday, April 15. OF Justin Maxwell is starting in right field and hitting fifth in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Maxwell ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is in a favorable lineup position Wednesday night, but he's a low-end outfield option at FantasyScore. For his career, Maxwell is batting just .231 in 325 at-bats against southpaws.

Giants | Brandon Belt to play some outfield?

Fri, 20 Mar 2015 16:27:05 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt is being discussed as an option to play the outfield in the absence of OF Hunter Pence (arm) and OF Angel Pagan (back), according to manager Bruce Bochy. If Belt plays in the outfield, it opens the possibility for C Buster Posey to play more first base. Backup Cs Hector Sanchez and Andrew Susac would get more time with Posey at first. Other outfield options include 1B Travis Ishikawa, OF Juan Perez, OF Justin Maxwell, INF Matt Duffy and 3B Adam Duvall.

Fantasy Tip: Belt is already a middle-round breakout candidate, and adding outfield eligibility would only further enhance his fantasy value.

Giants | Travis Ishikawa unlikely to play OF

Fri, 06 Mar 2015 09:09:37 -0800

San Francisco Giants 1B Travis Ishikawa is unlikely to play the outfield to start the season with OF Hunter Pence (forearm) sidelined. Ishikawa has just three regular season starts in left field, and the Giants have OFs Norichika Aoki, Gregor Blanco, Juan Perez and Justin Maxwell that they can mix and match with.

Fantasy Tip: Aoki is virtually locked into an everyday role in the outfield now with Pence slated to start the year on the disabled list. Blanco probably will benefit the most with regular playing time for the first month of the season or so, but that'll make him the most valuable in NL-only leagues.
