Giants | Gregor Blanco not starting

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 12:03:52 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Gregor Blanco is not in the starting lineup against Philadelphia Phillies SP Aaron Nola Sunday, June 26. OF Jarrett Parker will start in right field and is batting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Parker has at least one hit in six of his last eight games and is hitting .302 in June. He is not the best option available but should be considered by some daily fantasy league owners.

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 | Jarrett Parker will be DH

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 13:06:59 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Jarrett Parker will serve as the designated hitter against Tampa Bay Rays SP Chris Archer and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Parker has only one hit in his last five games and is hitting only .200 this season. Owners in most leagues should be able to find better options to use in their lineups.

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 | Jarrett Parker homers again

Mon, 06 Jun 2016 05:06:45 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Jarrett Parker hit his second home run of the year Sunday, June 5, in a 6-3 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: Parker is one of the fill-ins for the injured Hunter Pence, and his power display could earn Parker more playing time. Monitor how much time the Giants give him, as Parker could be an effective player in DFS leagues. Whether he is worth a pickup for other leagues depends on his usage.

Giants | Hunter Pence leaves early

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 16:58:04 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence (hamstring) had to leave the game Wednesday, June 1, against the Atlanta Braves after appearing to reinjure his right hamstring. With two outs in the fourth inning, Pence hit a slow roller to third. He pulled up about two-thirds of the way to first base and grabbed the back of his right leg. He would be escorted off the field and replaced by OF Jarrett Parker.

Fantasy Tip: This isn't good, as Pence previously missed five games in the latter half of May with a right hamstring strain. With that in mind, it wouldn't be a surprise at all if the veteran went on the disabled list as a result of the ailment. Parker would get the biggest boost, but hasn't really done anything just yet to warrant being picked up in most leagues.

Giants | Gregor Blanco receives day off

Mon, 30 May 2016 08:16:23 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Gregor Blanco is not in the starting lineup against Atlanta Braves SP Mike Foltynewicz Monday, May 30. OF Jarrett Parker will start in left field and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Parker has recorded four hits in his last five games and has one RBI during that span. Parker could be a sleeper option in some daily fantasy leagues, but owners should be able to find better options to use.

Giants | Denard Span has hip injury

Sat, 28 May 2016 12:01:02 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Denard Span (hip) has been scratched from the starting lineup against the Colorado Rockies Saturday, May 28, because of a bruised right hip. OF Gregor Blanco will bat leadoff and play center field in his place, with OF Jarrett Parker batting seventh and playing left field.

Fantasy Tip: Span is experiencing some residual soreness after crashing into the outfield wall earlier this week but the injury is considered minor. Blanco is 3-for-8 with a pair of doubles in his career versus Rockies SP Eddie Butler, so DFS players may want to consider taking a flier on him this afternoon. Parker is just 3-for-14 this season and is nothing more than a source of desperation cap relief.

Giants | Brandon Belt, Hunter Pence remain out

Fri, 27 May 2016 14:33:58 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt (ankle) and OF Hunter Pence (hamstring) remain out of the starting lineup Friday, May 27. C Trevor Brown is starting at first base and hitting eighth, while OF Jarrett Parker is in right field and batting seventh against Colorado Rockies SP Tyler Chatwood.

Fantasy Tip: Both Belt and Pence are considered day-to-day and could return to the lineup as soon as tomorrow. Get them both back into starting lineups everywhere when they're ready. The young Parker has serious power upside (23 homers last year in minors), so he's worth a cheap flier in DFS. Brown has surprised with four home runs in 56 at-bats as the backup catcher. His upside is limited low in the order, but you can do worse as a low-end catcher to save salary cap space tonight.

Giants | Angel Pagan to DL

Tue, 24 May 2016 14:07:54 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Angel Pagan (hamstring) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, May 24, with a left hamstring strain. OF Jarrett Parker was recalled from Class AAA Sacramento in a corresponding roster move.

Fantasy Tip: Pagan missed 11 games earlier this season with the same injury, and Pagan's hamstring could be balky enough to cause him issues through the rest of the year. For now, go ahead and clear a roster spot because Pagan's numbers don't merit keeping him around until his bat heats up. OF Gregor Blanco will likely benefit the most from Pagan's injury status.
