San Francisco Giants INF Matt Duffy and OF Jarrett Parker had their contracts purchased from Double-A Richmond Friday, August 1. The transactions correspond with OF Tyler Colvin and 2B Dan Uggla being designated for assignment.
Fantasy Tip: Take a wait-and-see approach with Duffy and Parker. They could gain NL-only value, if they can get semi-regular playing time. Duffy has shown solid contact skills with Richmond, whereas Parker has more pop. Colvin and Uggla are only worth a roster spot in the deepest NL-only formats.

Updating a previous report, the San Francisco Giants have not released 2B Dan Uggla. It was reported by multiple sources that Uggla had been released after a five-day stint with the club.
Fantasy Tip: The team might be hanging onto him in the event they cannot make a deal for an upgrade before the non-waiver trade deadline. There have been multiple reports that the team is interested in Cleveland Indians SS Asdrubal Cabrera, who can also play second base. Stay tuned.

San Francisco Giants 2B Dan Uggla was recalled from Triple-A Fresno Friday, July 24. Uggla is starting at second base and hitting eighth against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Fantasy Tip: Uggla has NL-only value. Desperate deep-mixed-league owners could take a flier, if you need home run help and can afford a potential batting average anchor.

San Francisco Giants 2B Dan Uggla went 1-for-4 with an RBI single in his debut for Triple-A Fresno on Wednesday, July 24.
Fantasy Tip: Uggla may be ready to come up sometime in August if he acquits himself well at Fresno. MAYBE he'll be worth deep-mixed consideration then.

The San Francisco Giants have signed free-agent 2B Dan Uggla (Braves). Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Fantasy Tip: It is not known at this point if Uggla will get start every day or be part of a platoon. Owners in deeper leagues can consider picking Uggla up if they need help at second base or middle infield, but he probably will not improve his numbers much as a member of the team.
