Giants | Chris Heston gets the nod Saturday

Fri, 22 May 2015 06:02:47 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Chris Heston will start Game 1 of the doubleheader at the Colorado Rockies Saturday, May 23.

Fantasy Tip: Heston ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) is a mid-priced starting pitcher with poor road splits this year. He offers strikeout potential but is a risky proposition for fantasy owners at Coors Field.

Giants | Chris Heston comes up with 10K outing

Wed, 13 May 2015 00:37:55 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Chris Heston allowed two hits and struck out 10 batters Tuesday, May 12, as the Giants defeated the Houston Astros 8-1. The last time a Giants rookie threw a complete game with 10 strikeouts was Roger Mason, who pitched against the Atlanta Braves in October 1985.

Fantasy Tip: Heston ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) may be a Rookie of the Year candidate if this keeps up. Houston has a pretty potent lineup, so for Heston to do what he did is amazing. Keep an eye on Heston's progress.

Giants | Chris Heston tosses another tidy outing

Sun, 19 Apr 2015 05:52:16 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Chris Heston struck out six batters through 7 2/3 innings to win his second game of the season over the Arizona Diamondbacks Saturday, April 18. Heston allowed one earned run on five hits and a walk.

Fantasy Tip: Heston ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) now owns a 0.87 ERA, a 0.97 WHIP and a 7.0 K/9 for the season. He projects to make his next start at hitter-friendly Coors Field, so it might be best to take another look at Heston against the Colorado Rockies Friday, April 24, before adding him to your fake team. FantasyScore owners should view Heston as a high-risk, high-reward play for his next start.

Giants | Chris Heston to start Wednesday

Tue, 07 Apr 2015 22:33:02 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Chris Heston was recalled from Triple-A Fresno to start the game Wednesday, April 8, against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Fantasy Tip: Heston is attempting to fill the void with Matt Cain (forearm) on the 15-day disabled list. The prospect Heston could be worth using in FantasyScore down the road if he shows well against the Snakes in the series finale.

Giants | Ryan Vogelsong starting Tuesday

Tue, 07 Apr 2015 09:06:16 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Ryan Vogelsong will receive the start against the Arizona Diamondbacks Tuesday, April 7, after both SPs Matt Cain (forearm) and Jake Peavy (back) were scratched due to injuries. SPs Tim Lincecum and Chris Heston are both options to face the Snakes Wednesday, April 8.

Fantasy Tip: Vogelsong ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) went 8-13 for the Giants last year with a 4.00 ERA and 1.28 WHIP while striking out 151 batters in 184 2/3 innings over 32 starts. Last year against Arizona, he went 1-2 with a 4.40 ERA. Vogelsong also fared much better at home in 2014. He's a cheap option at FantasyScore and worth considering against a D-backs squad that is a bit offensively challenged.
