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.

Giants | Angel Pagan remains out

Tue, 10 May 2016 15:41:37 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Angel Pagan (hamstring) remains out of the starting lineup Tuesday, May 10. OF Jarrett Parker is starting in left field and is hitting seventh against Toronto Blue Jays SP J.A. Happ.

Fantasy Tip: Parker has nice power and can hit homers in bunches, evidenced by his nine home runs in 102 at-bats for Class AAA Sacramento this year. However, he was batting just .216, and he's a desperation dart throw in daily setups tonight against the left-hander. If Pagan misses much more time, he could be put on the disabled list. Stay tuned.

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 | Marlon Byrd out of lineup Friday

Fri, 02 Oct 2015 17:45:03 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Marlon Byrd is not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Kyle Kendrick Friday, Oct. 2. OF Jarrett Parker will bat sixth and play right field.

Fantasy Tip: The Giants do not want Byrd ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) to receive 15 plate appearances between now and the end of the regular season, in order to avoid having to pay his $8 million option for next year, so he is a risky FantasyScore play this weekend. Parker ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) is batting .364 with four home runs and nine RBIs in 22 at-bats over the past week and is an excellent value option in FantasyScore.

Giants | Angel Pagan, Brandon Crawford sitting

Thu, 01 Oct 2015 10:48:20 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Angel Pagan and SS Brandon Crawford are not in the lineup against Los Angeles Dodgers left-handed SP Brett Anderson Thursday, Oct. 1. OF Jarrett Parker is starting in center field and batting sixth, while SS Nick Noonan is at shortstop and is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Parker ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) is a worth a look as a value pick on FantasyScore, but the fact that he's facing a lefty makes him even more shaky. He has six home runs and 13 RBI in just 38 at-bats for the Giants. Ignore Noonan ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) everywhere.

Giants | Alejandro De Aza out of Sunday lineup

Sun, 27 Sep 2015 11:13:47 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Alejandro De Aza is not starting Sunday, Sept. 27, against the Oakland Athletics. OF Jarrett Parker is in left field and hitting seventh against Athletics SP Sean Nolin.

Fantasy Tip: This is the second day in a row De Aza ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) is sitting, both times because a lefty was on the hill for Oakland. Parker ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) is blazing at bat with a .462-5-10 line in the last week and the team may be looking at him as an option for 2016.

Giants | Jarrett Parker in elite company

Sat, 26 Sep 2015 19:12:21 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Jarrett Parker went 3-for-5 with three home runs and seven RBI in a 14-10 win over the Oakland Athletics Saturday, Sept. 26, becoming the first Giants player since Willie Mays to have at least three home runs and seven RBI in a game.

Fantasy Tip: Parker ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has now homered in three straight games and has six homers in 14 career games. He won't keep up his current pace forever, but he makes a great source of cap relief at FantasyScore until he cools off.

Giants | Angel Pagan returns to lineup

Sat, 26 Sep 2015 11:10:34 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Angel Pagan will bat leadoff and play center field against Oakland Athletics SP Barry Zito Saturday, Sept. 26. OF Jarrett Parker, who played center field Friday, Sept. 25, will play left field Saturday, while OF Alejandro De Aza receives the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Pagan ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) is 2-for-6 with a solo home run in his career versus Zito and is hitting .305 with three home runs and eight RBIs during the month of September. He is a solid value play in FantasyScore today.

Giants | Angel Pagan out of lineup Friday

Fri, 25 Sep 2015 17:24:17 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Angel Pagan is not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray Friday, Sept. 25. OF Jarrett Parker will bat seventh and play center field.

Fantasy Tip: Remove Pagan ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) from your fantasy lineups. Parker ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has played well in very limited action, going 5-for-10 with a pair of home runs and four RBIs since being recalled earlier this month. He might be worth a flier in FantasyScore tonight.

Giants | Marlon Byrd out of lineup Sunday

Sun, 20 Sep 2015 11:30:49 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Marlon Byrd is not in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Jeremy Hellickson Sunday, Sept. 20. OF Jarrett Parker will bat fifth and play right field.

Fantasy Tip: Parker ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) is 3-for-5 with a double, a home run and two RBIs since being recalled earlier this month. FantasyScore owners in desperate need of cap relief might want to consider taking a flier on him.
