Giants | Matt Cain back from DL

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 11:27:29 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Matt Cain (hamstring) was activated from the disabled list Wednesday, July 20, and SS Ruben Tejada was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Cain isn't of much use to fantasy owners in the right matchups outside of NL-only leagues, and he has an unsightly 5.34 ERA, 1.51 WHIP and is fanning just 6.4 hitters per nine innings. Leave him alone in mixed universes.

Giants | Conor Gillaspie not in the lineup

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 12:25:36 -0700

San Francisco Giants 3B Conor Gillaspie is not in the starting lineup against San Diego Padres SP Edwin Jackson Sunday, July 17. SS Ruben Tejada will start at third base and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Tejada is hitting only .200 so far this month and probably can be avoided in most fantasy leagues.

Giants | Four Giants out of the lineup

Sun, 03 Jul 2016 13:01:09 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Denard Span (neck), OF Angel Pagan (undisclosed), 2B Ramiro Pena (ankle) and 3B Conor Gillaspie are not in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Robbie Ray Sunday, July 3. SS Ruben Tejada will start at third base and is batting first. 2B Grant Green will start at second base and is batting second. OF Mac Williamson will start in right field and is batting sixth. C Trevor Brown will start at catcher and is batting eight. C Buster Posey will start at first base, while 1B Brandon Belt will start in left field.

Fantasy Tip: Tejada, Green, Williamson and Brown are not strong fantasy options and owners should be able to find better options to use.

Giants | Ruben Tejada to see time versus lefties

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 17:25:49 -0700

San Francisco Giants INF Ruben Tejada is expected to serve as the club's primary option at third base versus left-handed pitching, according to manager Bruce Bochy. He can also be used to back up SS Brandon Crawford.

Fantasy Tip: Tejada hit just .176 in 34 at-bats for the St. Louis Cardinals this season but was 4-for-12 versus southpaws and is a career .282 hitter against lefties. He's worth rostering in deep NL-only fantasy leagues and can be used as a productive source of cap relief in DFS whenever the Giants are facing a lefty.

Giants | Joe Panik put on 7-day DL

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 16:16:58 -0700

San Francisco Giants 2B Joe Panik (concussion) was placed on the 7-day concussion disabled list Wednesday, June 29, and SS Ruben Tejada was recalled from the minors in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Panik doesn't do anything particular well in any fantasy category that makes him valuable in mixed leagues. In his absence, Ramiro Pena or Tejada could see starts at the keystone, but neither have much offensive upside and can be ignored in most fantasy formats.

Giants | San Fran adds Ruben Tejada

Mon, 13 Jun 2016 18:58:15 -0700

The San Francisco Giants signed free-agent SS Ruben Tejada (Cardinals) to a minor-league contract, pending his physical Monday, June 13.

Fantasy Tip: Tejada would be added for depth, and he is not expected to come up to the big club to see meaningful playing time. As such, take a wait-and-see approach with him and if he gets a chance in San Francisco later give him a shot in deeper NL-only fantasy leagues.

Cardinals | Matt Carpenter activated

Sat, 28 May 2016 09:20:43 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 3B Matt Carpenter was activated from the paternity list Saturday, May 28. The team also designated SS Ruben Tejada for assignment.

Fantasy Tip: Carpenter should continue to receive most of the starts at third base and should be a starting option in all leagues. Greg Garcia could receive a little more playing time with Tejada leaving but is still not a great fantasy option.

Cardinals | Matt Carpenter sits

Wed, 25 May 2016 09:13:18 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 3B Matt Carpenter is out of the lineup Wednesday, May 25, with 2B Kolten Wong hitting leadoff. SS Ruben Tejada is playing third and hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Wong has a .265-1-3 line this month and will be greeted by Jake Arrieta today. The leadoff spot gives Wong some luster, but the matchup is terrible. Tejada doesn't hit enough to use in DFS today.

Cardinals | No Brandon Moss, Matt Adams

Fri, 20 May 2016 14:45:19 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1Bs Brandon Moss and Matt Adams are not in the starting lineup Friday, May 20. 3B Matt Carpenter is starting at first base, and SS Ruben Tejada is starting at third base and batting eighth against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Patrick Corbin Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Moss and Adams have been splitting time at first base, but the left-handed hitters will receive the night off against the southpaw, so sub them out where you can in seasonal leagues. Adams has swung the better bat of late with a .314/.368/.429 slash line and 11 RBI through 38 plate appearances in May. Tejada is nothing more than a desperation flier in all fantasy formats Friday.
