Giants | Jeff Samardzija knocked around

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 23:00:37 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Jeff Samardzija was bounced around for six runs, eight hits and two walks with two strikeouts over six innings in a loss Monday, June 27, against the Oakland Athletics.

Fantasy Tip: Samardzija has managed just one win over his past six starts, and he has allowed six or more earned runs in three of his five June starts, as his ERA has ballooned from 2.84 to 3.91. Despite the rough patch he remains a must-start in all fantasy leagues, as he'll get it turned around.

Giants | Jeff Samardzija shaky of late

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 15:33:33 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Jeff Samardzija is 1-2 with a 6.41 ERA and has allowed eight home runs in 26 2/3 innings in his last five starts after starting the year 7-3 with a 2.54 ERA in his first 10 starts.

Fantasy Tip: Samardzija has a history of being inconsistent, and his fantasy owners haven't been thrilled with his performance of late. However, a matchup against the A's tonight at home looks nice for him to rebound as a contrarian play in daily formats. After all it is Shark Week, so Samardzija should be focused and ready to go.

Giants | Jeff Samardzija blasted in loss

Sat, 04 Jun 2016 22:20:58 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Jeff Samardzija gave up four home runs in the span of nine at-bats Saturday, June 4, in a 7-4 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals. Samardzija gave up back-to-back blasts to OF Stephen Piscotty and 1B Matt Adams in the sixth inning.

Fantasy Tip: One bad performance isn't going to worry Samardzija supporters. His record is still a respectable 7-4, and you can still trust him in all fantasy formats. About the only thing to add is analyze the matchups. St. Louis has a formidable hitting lineup, which could give Samardzija fits down the road if the Cardinals see him again.

Giants | Jeff Samardzija loses to Braves

Mon, 30 May 2016 16:10:16 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Jeff Samardzija had his first off outing in awhile Monday, May 30, opposite the Atlanta Braves. He worked five innings, yielding five runs (four earned) on six hits and two walks, while striking out four.

Fantasy Tip: Coming into Monday, Samardzija was 4-1 in five starts for the month with a 1.41 ERA and 0.89 ERA, so this outcome certainly wasn't expected against the worst team in the majors. However, he's been so good lately that his owners will just have to forgive him and hope he can get back on track this weekend in his next assignment.

Giants | Jeff Samardzija sharp again

Tue, 24 May 2016 23:31:46 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Jeff Samardzija pushed his May record to 4-1 with a win over the San Diego Padres on Tuesday, May 24. Samardzija allowed one run in 6 2/3 innings, making it the fourth time this month he has yielded a single run in a start.

Fantasy Tip: Coming off a tough season with the White Sox, Samardzija suddenly looks like a top-of-the-rotation workhorse for the Giants. His strikeout numbers are coming along as well, as he has now struck out at least a hitter per inning in five of his last six starts. It's looking like a potential breakout year for Samardzija.

Giants | Jeff Samardzija was tipping pitches

Tue, 24 May 2016 11:06:08 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Jeff Samardzija discovered late last September that he had been tipping his pitches with the Chicago White Sox based on the time he stayed set in the stretch. "I'm over fighting myself, I'm going to go with what feels natural," Samardzija recalled thinking. "Sometimes, you've got to hit the wall to realize that you've got to let go a little bit."

Fantasy Tip: The Shark's last two stellar outings with Chicago paved the way for his turnaround with the Giants in 2016. He's currently sporting a 6-2 record, 2.66 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 7.7 strikeouts per nine innings. Samardzija has been an incredible value so far for those that took the chance on him as their third or fourth starter.

Giants | Jeff Samardzija effective in win

Fri, 20 May 2016 05:42:49 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Jeff Samardzija held the San Diego Padres to three hits and one run, struck out eight and walked none in eight innings of work Thursday, May 19. He retired his final 19 batters as the Giants cruised to a 3-1 win.

Fantasy Tip: Samardzija has been lights-out effective in his starts this year. He improved to 6-2 overall and just missed becoming the third Giants pitcher in as many days to toss a complete game. Play Samardzija in all formats as long as he is pitching dominantly like this.
