Giants | Mac Williamson logs three hits, HR

Thu, 23 Jun 2016 15:25:32 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Mac Williamson recorded the first three-hit day of his career Thursday, June 23, opposite the Pittsburgh Pirates. He went 3-for-4 on the day, including blasting his second home run of the season, finishing with one run scored and two RBI.

Fantasy Tip: In a rarity, Williamson got to hit in the No. 3 hole and the second-year outfielder responded with the best game of his still-young career. At the same time, he had three hits all month entering this afternoon's affair, so owners shouldn't be rushing to the waiver wire after this one performance. For the year, Williamson has a .243/.317/.432 line in limited action.

Giants | Three Giants take a seat

Thu, 23 Jun 2016 08:02:51 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt, OF Angel Pagan and OF Gregor Blanco are out of the lineup Thursday, June 23. OF Mac Williamson is hitting third, C Trevor Brown hits fifth and OF Jarrett Parker hits seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Williamson is hitting .182 on the year, but he's a stud of a basement play today hitting ahead of Buster Posey, who shifted to first base. Brown is hitting .238 this month, but he has some upside for his place in the lineup against Jonathon Niese. Parker doesn't deserve much consideration against the lefty.

Giants | Mac Williamson reaches four times

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 21:51:46 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Mac Williamson, recalled from Class AAA Sacramento this week when 3B Matt Duffy (Achilles') hit the 15-day disabled list, went 1-for-2 with three walks and a strikeout Wednesday, June 22, against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Fantasy Tip: Williamson might see an occasional start, but he is only worth a look in the deepest of NL fantasy leagues and as a low-priced salary saver in DFS play when he starts.

Giants | Mac Williamson starting in right field

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 12:41:37 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Mac Williamson is starting in right field against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano Wednesday, June 22. OF Gregor Blanco is not in the starting lineup Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Williamson enters flier territory for daily contests Wednesday, but at this point, he doesn't warrant attention in seasonal leagues. Blanco has been seeing more at-bats of late with Hunter Pence out, and Blanco is a low-end option in cavernous mixed and NL-only formats because of his playing time. Just don't overvalue Blanco, as his .681 OPS in June leaves a lot to be desired.

Giants | Angel Pagan activated

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 16:19:07 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Angel Pagan (hamstring) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Wednesday, June 14, and will start in left field against Milwaukee Brewers SP Matt Garza and is batting seventh. OF Jarrod Parker is no longer in the lineup. OF Mac Williamson was optioned to Class AAA Sacramento.

Fantasy Tip: Pagan should be a regular in the starting lineup moving forward. He posted decent numbers before he suffered his injury and should be a solid starting option in most fantasy leagues.

Giants | Gregor Blanco on bench vs. lefty

Wed, 08 Jun 2016 15:34:36 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Gregor Blanco (rest) is not in the lineup Wednesday, June 8, versus Boston Red Sox SP David Price. OF Mac Williamson gets the start in his place and will play left field, batting eighth, while OF Jarrett Parker will slide over to right field.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco has actually been pretty good against left-handed pitching, but he'll take a seat on the pine anyway for this matchup with the former AL Cy Young award winner. With Price toeing the rubber, it's difficult getting behind Williamson or Parker in daily games for tonight. Owners can do better with potential sleeper picks.

Giants | Hunter Pence placed on DL

Thu, 02 Jun 2016 08:16:02 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence (hamstring) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Thursday, June 2, because of a left hamstring strain. The team also recalled OF Mac Williamson from Class AAA Sacramento.

Fantasy Tip: Jarrett Parker is the leading candidate to start in right field for now. He can be a short-term option in NL-only leagues as well as some deeper mixed leagues because of his power potential. Angel Pagan is making progress from his injury and probably will rejoin the starting lineup as a possible replacement for Pence. He should be a solid starting candidate in most leagues. Williamson probably will receive some playing time over the next few weeks but is not a strong fantasy option.

Giants | Jarrett Parker called up by Giants

Mon, 09 May 2016 15:04:42 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Jarrett Parker was called up from the minors Monday, May 9, and OF Mac Williamson was sent to the minors in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Parker, a left-handed hitter, was off to a slow start at Class AAA Sacramento (.216), but he had nine home runs in 102 at-bats. He hit .283 with 23 bombs in the minors in 2015. Parker may not stick in the majors for long, but his presence could also signal that Angel Pagan may be out longer. In the short term, Parker can be useful in cavernous mixed, NL-only and keeper leagues.

Giants | Denard Span not starting

Sun, 08 May 2016 12:21:04 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Denard Span is not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Eddie Butler Sunday, May 8. OF Gregor Blanco will start in center field, while OF Mac Williamson will start in left field and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Williamson has recorded three hits and one RBI over the last three games but has not received a lot of playing time this season. Williamson may not be the best option for owners to consider.

Giants | Angel Pagan to avoid DL

Mon, 02 May 2016 14:47:00 -0700

Updating a previous report, San Francisco Giants OF Angel Pagan (hamstring) was diagnosed with a Grade 1 strain of his left hamstring, and he'll miss a minimum of four to five days. Pagan will avoid the disabled list for now, and OFs Gregor Blanco and Mac Williamson will platoon in left field in the meantime.

Fantasy Tip: Pagan has been hitting very well out of the ninth spot and can help your team batting average in deeper mixed and NL-only leagues. Hang onto him there if he serves that need. Blanco and Williamson are nothing more than daily sleepers in the right matchup until Pagan returns.
