Giants | Gregor Blanco back in lineup

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 17:05:58 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Gregor Blanco (hip) will bat seventh and play center field against St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha Friday, Aug. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is batting .268 during the month of August and is hitting .365 at home this season, making him a productive source of cap relief for FantasyScore owners.

Giants | Gregor Blanco still out vs. Cubs

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 11:10:40 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Gregor Blanco (hip) is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Aug. 27. OF Juan Perez is starting in center field and batting seventh against Chicago Cubs SP Dan Haren Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has been a sneaky low-end value at FantasyScore and in deep seasonal leagues. Avoid him in all formats until he returns to the lineup. Perez ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has just 13 plate appearances this season, so he is nothing but a dice roll in daily contests Thursday.

Giants | Gregor Blanco scratched

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 18:45:45 -0700

The San Francisco Giants scratched OF Gregor Blanco (hip) from the lineup Wednesday, Aug. 26, against the Chicago Cubs due to a strained left hip.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) should be avoided in FantasyScore until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any lingering effects of his injury. Juan Perez ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) replaced him in the lineup.

Giants | Gregor Blanco dropped in batting order

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 13:40:29 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Gregor Blanco is hitting eighth against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jeff Locke Friday, Aug. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Now that Nori Aoki is back from the DL, expect Blanco ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) to hit lower in the order until Angel Pagan is back from injury. The drop in the lineup isn't as nice for his daily value, and he's not a strong play against a lefty tonight on FantasyScore. None of Blanco's three homers this year were off left-handers.

Giants | Gregor Blanco out of the lineup

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 15:39:43 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Gregor Blanco is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 19. 2B Kelby Tomlinson is batting leadoff, and OF Juan Perez is starting in center field and batting eighth against St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Blanco ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) in all fantasy formats Wednesday. He has gained fleeting value in cavernous mixed and NL-only formats, as he has leadoff and played center field each of the past five games. Still, he is a low-end option. It isn't out of the question to bump Tomlinson ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) up a notch on your FantasyScore priority list Wednesday. He owns a .333/.357/.519 slash line over 12 games since being recalled to the Giants. Perez ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) owns a .567 OPS over 210 plate appearances for his career, so you'll want to aim higher in daily contests.

Giants | Hunter Pence placed on DL

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 22:58:10 -0700

The San Francisco Giants placed OF Hunter Pence (oblique) on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, Aug. 18, due to a strained oblique. The team is hopeful he can return by early September. With Pence sidelined, the Giants outfield consisted of OFs Gregor Blanco, Ryan Lollis and Justin Maxwell.

Fantasy Tip: With Pence back on the shelf Ryan Lollis ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) and Justin Maxwell ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) are likely to see an increase in at-bats over the next couple of weeks.

Giants | Nori Aoki out against Nationals

Thu, 13 Aug 2015 14:47:49 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Nori Aoki (concussion) is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Aug. 13. OF Gregor Blanco is starting in center field and leading off against Washington Nationals SP Stephen Strasburg Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: It isn't overly surprising to see Aoki ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) out of the lineup, and a stint on the disabled list looms for the outfielder, as he was suffering from concussion-like symptoms Wednesday, Aug. 12. Blanco ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) should be viewed as a low-priced flier for FantasyScore players Thursday.

Giants | Angel Pagan sitting out

Sun, 09 Aug 2015 09:26:34 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Angel Pagan is not in the starting lineup against Chicago Cubs SP Jake Arrieta Sunday, Aug. 9. OF Gregor Blanco will start in center field and is batting second in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Pagan ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) likely is receiving a rest and should return to the lineup soon. Blanco ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is hitting only .211 in seven games this month and may not be the best option for owners on FantasyScore.

Giants | Angel Pagan remains out of the lineup

Wed, 05 Aug 2015 14:41:40 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Angel Pagan (knee) is not in the starting lineup against the Atlanta Braves Wednesday, Aug. 5. OF Gregor Blanco is starting in center field and batting second against Braves SP Williams Perez Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Pagan ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) was questionable for the game Wednesday, so he should return soon. Blanco ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has started the past three games in center and batted second. During the span, he has gone 2-for-10 and stands as potential budget play for FantasyScore players.

Giants | Gregor Blanco starts in center field

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 18:10:07 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Gregor Blanco made the start in center field Tuesday, Aug. 4, against the Atlanta Braves in place of the injured OF Angel Pagan (back).

Fantasy Tip: Blanco ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) could make another start in the outfield, saving FantasyScore owners plenty of money to load up at other positions, although manager Bruce Bochy did say there is a chance Pagan returns Wednesday.
