Giants | Angel Pagan could lead off against lefties

Wed, 20 May 2015 16:36:59 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Angel Pagan is likely to hit leadoff more often against left-handed pitchers, according to manager Bruce Bochy. In those instances, OF Justin Maxwell would fill in in left field for OF Nori Aoki.

Fantasy Tip: Such a move would essentially make Aoki ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) a platoon player in left field and kill much of his value in traditional leagues. Pagan ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has fared well against southpaws this year, but a move to leadoff some of the time won't drastically affect his outlook at FantasyScore.

Giants | Nori Aoki out vs. southpaw

Wed, 20 May 2015 16:05:56 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Nori Aoki is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 20. OF Justin Maxwell is starting in left field and hitting fifth in the batting order against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Brett Anderson.

Fantasy Tip: All three of Maxwell's ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) home runs this year have come against right-handed pitchers, and he doesn't really move the needle all that much at FantasyScore. He's a very mediocre option tonight and shouldn't garner nearly as much attention as he's relegated to a fourth-outfield role.

Giants | Nori Aoki on the bench

Fri, 15 May 2015 12:04:00 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Nori Aoki is not in the starting lineup Friday, May 15. OF Gregor Blanco will start in left field for the Giants.

Fantasy Tip: Aoki ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is receiving his second straight day off but should return soon. Blanco ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has picked up five hits in his last three games, but owners on FantasyScore may be able to find better options to use in their lineups.

Giants | Nori Aoki resting Thursday

Thu, 14 May 2015 11:58:58 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Nori Aoki is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 14. OF Gregor Blanco is starting in left field and hitting leadoff against Cincinnati Reds SP Johnny Cueto.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is hitting just .219 (14-for-64) with no home runs and an RBI on the season, and he's a very weak FantasyScore play tonight against Cueto, who is one of the most dominant pitchers in the league.

Giants | Justin Maxwell hot of late

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 11:46:33 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Justin Maxwell homered in each of the two games over the weekend and is batting .308 with a 1.015 OPS in 39 at-bats this season, and manager Bruce Bochy said he'll keep playing Maxwell in right field until OF Hunter Pence (arm) returns. Maxwell could knock OF Norichika Aoki out of the lineup once Pence returns on occasion.

Fantasy Tip: It's hard not to want to sneak Maxwell ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) into your FantasyScore lineups while he's on fire. Tonight is another one of those occasions, as he's facing Los Angeles Dodgers left-handed starter Brett Anderson.

Giants | Norichika Aoki resting Friday

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 14:02:42 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Norichika Aoki is not in the starting lineup Friday, April 24. OF Gregor Blanco is starting in left field and hitting leadoff against Colorado Rockies SP Eddie Butler.

Fantasy Tip: Stacking your FantasyScore lineups with Giants while in Coors Field against Butler isn't a bad idea. That continues with Blanco ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) at the top of the order, even though he's hitting just .220 (9-for-41) to start the year. Blanco could give you a nice opportunity to change it up on your opponents.

Giants | Norichika Aoki to hit leadoff Thursday

Thu, 02 Apr 2015 16:48:51 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Norichika Aoki will hit leadoff Thursday, April 2.

Fantasy Tip: Manager Bruce Bochy has voiced a desire for Aoki ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) to lead off for the club while Hunter Pence recovers from a broken forearm. An early-season assignment as the leadoff hitter will provide Aoki a short-term boost in value in season long leagues and FantasyScore games.

Giants | Norichika Aoki could hit leadoff for SF

Wed, 25 Mar 2015 17:14:18 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Norichika Aoki is a candidate to hit leadoff. Manager Bruce Bochy voiced a desire for Aoki to work as the leadoff hitter so OF Angel Pagan (back) can be dropped to third in the order. Aoki has hit leadoff in 336 of his 384 big leagues starts. He hopes to be more aggressive now that he's back in the National League. Aoki stole 50 bases in two season with the Milwaukee Brewers before stealing only 17 with the Kansas City Royals last year.

Fantasy Tip: A move to the top of the order for Aoki ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) would be helpful to his fantasy value since it would award him greater run-scoring potential. Furthermore, if he's given the green light to steal bases more frequently, he'll be a solid late-round selection for speed-starved drafters.

Giants | Gregor Blanco likely to open in RF

Thu, 19 Mar 2015 09:58:40 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Gregor Blanco appears ticketed to start the season as the starting right fielder with OF Hunter Pence (arm) out. Blanco has played between 141 and 146 games in each of his three years with the Giants. The team is discussing using OF Norichika Aoki in left field. Blanco has been shagging balls at all three outfield positions this spring, as usual.

Fantasy Tip: The combination of Pence's injury and Angel Pagan's back issues should assure that Blanco will open the season with everyday at-bats somewhere in the outfield. He has late-round intrigue in very deep mixed leagues, but he'll be more beneficial to owners in NL-only formats to start 2015.

Giants | Norichika Aoki to have first crack at RF

Fri, 06 Mar 2015 16:31:58 -0800

San Francisco Giants OF Norichika Aoki will be given the first chance to win the right field job while OF Hunter Pence (forearm) is out of the lineup, according to manager Bruce Bochy.

Fantasy Tip: Aoki was expected to be one of the starting outfielders before Pence's injury, and he will take over right field if he plays well during spring training. Aoki could be an option in later rounds of drafts because of his batting average and stolen base potential.
