San Francisco Giants RP Jeremy Affeldt (shoulder) is scheduled to throw a few simulated games this weekend and could be activated from the disabled list as soon as Monday, July 20.
Fantasy Tip: It is uncertain if Affeldt will be used in low-leverage situations or if he will be thrown immediately into a setup role once he returns to action. He was 0-2 with a 5.96 ERA and seven holds in 33 games prior to landing on the DL.

San Francisco Giants RP Jeremy Affeldt (shoulder) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Friday, June 26, with a left shoulder sprain.
Fantasy Tip: Affeldt could have had chances to close games or work in key set-up situations had he stayed healthy, but it's hard to tell now if he'll be back prior to the All-Star break. If you have him in an annual league, the best bet is simply to bench him and find a better alternative.

San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner was credited with the save, and not the win, in Game 7 of the World Series against the Kansas City Royals Wednesday, Oct. 29. He threw five shutout innings of relief after RP Jeremy Affeldt was credited with the win after going 2 1/3 innings of relief. Bumgarner's save became the longest in World Series history, with the previous longest coming in Game 6 for the Los Angeles Dodgers in 1981.

San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy said RP Santiago Casilla will be the team's closer for now. Bochy likes to use RP Jeremy Affeldt in the sixth and seventh inning because he can pitch multiple innings.
Fantasy Tip: Owners should look to add Casilla if he is still available in their leagues, but it is not known how long he will hold onto that job.

San Francisco Giants RP Sergio Romo has been removed from the closer role, according to manager Bruce Bochy. RPs Santiago Casilla and Jeremy Affeldt will share closing duties for the immediate future. Romo is expected to pitch in the seventh and eighth innings for the time being, and there is a possibility he could regain his old job down the line.
Fantasy Tip: Casilla and Affeldt should be added immediately in all fantasy leagues. Romo is 0-3 with a 10.64 ERA in his last 12 appearances and has blown five saves this season. He has allowed six home runs this year (tying a career high) and opponents were hitting .455 against him in his last five games, taking advantage of an ineffective slider. That being said, it might be worth it to hang on to Romo if he proves he can turn things around and reclaim the closer's job.
