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.

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt (concussion) is headed to the disabled list with a concussion, but it's unknown if it will be the 7-day DL or the 15-day DL. Tests confirmed he has a concussion. 3B Adam Duvall is expected to come up in his place.
Fantasy Tip: Belt could miss a couple weeks or more depending on the severity of the concussion. Tyler Colvin is the benefactor as he'll likely see more time in the outfield and at first with Michael Morse. Colvin and Duvall have NL-only value as roster depth.

The San Francisco Giants placed OF Angel Pagan (back) on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday, June 25, and recalled 3B Adam Duvall from Triple-A Fresno.
Fantasy Tip: This will give Tyler Colvin more playing time. He may creep into short-term deep-mixed utility, but don't count on it. Duvall clubbed 23 homers at Fresno but will struggle to find playing time barring an injury.

San Francisco Giants OF Angel Pagan (back) is out of the lineup again Tuesday, June 24, his eighth straight game on the pine.

San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy said OFs Gregor Blanco and Tyler Colvin will compete for playing time in left field.
Fantasy Tip: Neither Blanco nor Colvin is a viable fantasy option at this point because of the timeshare.
