Giants | Gregor Blanco out vs. lefty

Fri, 17 Jul 2015 16:34:28 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Gregor Blanco is not in the lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks left-handed SP Robbie Ray Friday, July 17. OF Justin Maxwell is starting in left field and hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Maxwell ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) continues to be a very weak outfield option on FantasyScore. That trend continues tonight against the lefty Ray, as Maxwell has hit just .220 (13-for-59) with none of his six home runs against southpaws in 2015.

Giants | Brandon Belt starting in left field

Sun, 12 Jul 2015 11:31:22 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B/OF Brandon Belt will bat sixth and start in left field against Philadelphia Phillies SP Chad Billingsley Sunday, July 12. OF Gregor Blanco will get the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Belt ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) is making his 10th start of the year in left field and is 2-for-9 versus Billingsley in his career. He is hitting .307 versus righties and .333 during day games this season, making him a sensible starting option for FantasyScore owners who would rather not spend top dollar at the position.

Giants | Gregor Blanco not in Saturday lineup

Sat, 11 Jul 2015 15:30:07 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Gregor Blanco is not in the lineup Saturday, July 11, against the Philadelphia Phillies. OF Angel Pagan is hitting leadoff.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is likely out due to his slump in the past week. He does hit .327 against right-handers but with a .188 mark in the past week that's a prime reason to put him aside in FantasyScore.

Giants | Gregor Blanco resting Friday

Fri, 10 Jul 2015 16:30:45 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Gregor Blanco is not in the lineup against Philadelphia Phillies left-handed SP Cole Hamels Friday, July 10. OF Justin Maxwell is starting in left field and hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Maxwell ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has been pretty bad offensively all year, not to mention a .207/.258/.293 slash line with none of his six home runs against lefties in 2015. Avoid Maxwell on FantasyScore against Hamels this evening.

Giants | Gregor Blanco leading off

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 16:45:06 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Gregor Blanco is hitting leadoff against New York Mets left-handed SP Jon Niese Monday, July 6. As a result, OF Angel Pagan was dropped to fifth in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) would typically be a great value play while hitting leadoff, but he's facing a left-hander tonight, which makes him a big risk. He's slashing .240/.296/.320 with no home runs and just two RBI against southpaws this year. Pagan ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is even riskier further down the lineup despite a .378/.416/.402 line against lefties in 2015.

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 | Angel Pagan sitting vs. Nationals

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 06:26:23 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Angel Pagan is not in the starting lineup Saturday, July 4. OF Gregor Blanco is playing center field and batting first against Washington Nationals SP Stephen Strasburg Saturday.

Fantasy Tip: Over his past 21 games, Pagan ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is batting just .205 with a .491 OPS. It is likely just a routine day off, but seeing as he would have to face Strasburg, Pagan wasn't a viable FantasyScore option anyway. Blanco ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) shouldn't be viewed as anything more than a desperation source of cap relief, either.

Giants | Gregor Blanco homers in loss

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 16:34:38 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Gregor Blanco homered Thursday, July 2, against the Miami Marlins.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) hadn't hit a home run since May 16, but he's been able to contribute via a high batting average and scoring runs. Blanco can be considered whenever he starts against a right-handed pitcher.

Giants | Angel Pagan resting

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 08:33:34 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Angel Pagan is out of the lineup Thursday, July 2, with OF Gregor Blanco in his place at leadoff.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is having a nice season with a .314-1-15 clip, but he draws Jose Fernandez in his season debut. The upside isn't there, but the price and spot in the lineup is right if you need a low-priced outfield option on FantasyScore.

Giants | Gregor Blanco in left field Saturday

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 12:48:32 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Gregor Blanco is starting in left field and batting eighth against the Colorado Rockies Saturday, Sept. 27. OF/1B Brandon Belt is getting the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is hitting .368 over the last seven days and is batting .352 at home this season. He is worth considering in FantasyScore as a low-cost outfield option. Belt ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) has had a June he'd like to forget, batting just .195 with two homers and 10 RBIs.
