Fantasy Tip: Crawford ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has six homers and 24 RBIs on the year, and thanks to some surprising power, he has emerged as a solid mid-range option at shortstop at FantasyScore this year.

Giants | Brandon Crawford adjusting to offspeed

Thu, 07 May 2015 11:51:03 -0700

San Francisco Giants SS Brandon Crawford said he has been seeing much more offspeed pitches than fastballs as pitchers adjust to him this season. As a result, he has worked on seeing and hitting offspeed pitches during batting practice, and it has paid off.

Fantasy Tip: Crawford ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has raised his average to .253 (22-for-87) with a team-high five home runs and 15 RBI. So far in the month of May, he's hitting .316 (6-for-19) with a homer and four RBI. He's surprisingly hitting lefties better than righties this year, too. If he's on the waiver wire in a shallow mixed league and you're hurting at shortstop or middle infield, you could do much worse than Crawford.

San Francisco Giants OF Brandon Crawford is not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Tyler Matzek Wednesday, April 15. SS Joaquin Arias is starting at shortstop and hitting seventh in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Arias ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should never really be a recommendation for FantasyScore lineups, other than to save you considerable money for the rest of your lineup.
