Giants | Chris Heston struggles in day games

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 11:43:56 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Chris Heston is 1-3 with a 6.93 ERA in five starts during the day this year, as opposed to 6-2 with a 2.55 ERA at night.

Fantasy Tip: Heston ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) profiles as a great value play today on FantasyScore. The Padres rank second with 491 punchouts against right-handed starters this season, and has pitched better in the pitcher-friendly confines in San Fran in 2015.

Giants | Chris Heston has little luck with SD

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 04:31:34 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Chris Heston pitches against the San Diego Padres on Thursday, June 25. Heston has an 8.00 ERA in two previous starts against the Padres.

Fantasy Tip: Heston ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) has had a decent season with a 7-5 overall record, but this is an example of those matchups you need to watch in FantasyScore formats. Heston may find a way to break through, but consider San Diego is pitching James Shields (7-1). Shields is one of the most reliable pitchers in the majors, so Heston may not find any traction on Thursday. Look elsewhere.

Giants | Chris Heston notches seventh win

Sat, 20 Jun 2015 05:18:37 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Chris Heston allowed three earned runs on seven hits over 5 2/3 innings with a strikeout to record his seventh win of the season against the Los Angeles Dodgers Friday, June 19.

Fantasy Tip: Heston ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) has followed up his no-hitter with two respectable outings, but he shouldn't be confused with anything more than a low-end starter in mixed leagues. Outside of deep mixed and NL-only formats, his starts should likely be combed over, too. Seven of his 14 starts this season have returned fewer than five strikeouts, too, which limits his upside, especially in FantasyScore contests.

Giants | Chris Heston throws no-hitter

Tue, 09 Jun 2015 19:18:32 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Chris Heston threw a no-hitter Tuesday, June 9, against the New York Mets. He also did not walk any batters, but missed the perfect game due to three hit batsmen.

Fantasy Tip: Heston ($6,200; or 12.4% of cap) has been so-so for FantasyScore players most of the season, but he was masterful in this one. He’ll try to join Johnny Vander Meer as the only player in MLB history with back-to-back no-hitters when he works Sunday against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Giants | Chris Heston has short outing

Wed, 03 Jun 2015 04:19:25 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Chris Heston had his shortest outing at home and second shortest outing of the season with five runs and seven hits surrendered in 3 2/3 innings Tuesday, June 2. The Giants lost 7-4 to the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Fantasy Tip: Heston ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) might be on a short leash in terms of being a starter. What has saved him so far are injury woes with Matt Cain and Jake Peavy. Still, he has to do better than this to keep a starting job, and you may want to consider matchups before putting Heston in your lineup.

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.
