Giants | Jake Peavy solid in return

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 18:29:30 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy (back) took the loss in his first start since being activated from the disabled list, allowing two runs on three hits and striking out in 6 1/3 innings against the Washington Nationals Friday, July 3.

Fantasy Tip: Peavy ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) had struggled in his first two starts of the year before landing on the DL, but he turned in his best performance of the year Friday. He was actually solid with the Giants at the end of last season, but with his best years well behind him, Peavy is likely to be inconsistent from one start to the next and a risky option at FantasyScore.

Giants | Jake Peavy activated from DL

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 10:58:33 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy (back) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Friday, July 3. SP Tim Hudson (shoulder) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right shoulder strain.

Fantasy Tip: Peavy ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) faces a talented Washington Nationals lineup and doesn't have a lot of upside on FantasyScore. Hudson isn't worth stashing except maybe in NL-only leagues if you have the space.

Giants | Matt Cain, Jake Peavy returning this week

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 14:38:50 -0700

San Francisco Giants SPs Matt Cain (elbow) and Jake Peavy (back) will return from the disabled list later this week and re-enter the starting rotation. Manager Bruce Bochy confirmed that Cain will start Thursday, July 2, while Peavy will go Friday, July 3.

Fantasy Tip: The return of Cain ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) and Peavy ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) will push Tim Hudson and Tim Lincecum out of the rotation. Lincecum is headed for the DL, while Hudson is likely to pitch out of the bullpen. Cain will face the Miami Marlins Thursday, making him a risk/reward option on FantasyScore despite it being his first start back. Peavy should be avoided on FantasyScore against the Washington Nationals Friday. Both Cain and Peavy could be successfully used in shallow mixed leagues as matchup plays, with Cain having more fantasy upside. Hudson and Lincecum should be dropped in traditional formats.

Giants | Jake Peavy could return Tuesday

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 09:48:00 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy (back) completed his final scheduled rehab start Friday, June 26, when he allowed five earned runs in the first inning. He has been sidelined since April 17 with a strained lower back. Peavy, along with SP Matt Cain (elbow), could be activated before their game Tuesday, June 30, against the Miami Marlins.

Fantasy Tip: Peavy ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) struggled in two 2015 starts before the injury and in what is expected to be his final rehab start Friday. He pitched well enough to be fantasy viable in deeper mixed leagues in 2014 (3.73 ERA, 1.28 WHIP, 158 K's) and pitching primarily in San Francisco's Pac bell park should help him again this season. Peavy can be an affordable, low-end sleeper play on FantasyScore in the right matchups.

Giants | Jake Peavy will make one more start

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 16:57:14 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy (back) will make one more rehab start at Class AAA, and he is tentatively scheduled to rejoin the Giants' rotation July 3. SP Tim Lincecum would be normally slotted for that start, based on the current rotation.

Fantasy Tip: Peavy ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) doesn't have much value beyond NL-only leagues. Mixed-league owners will need to see some strong performances from the veteran before streaming him for ideal matchups.

Giants | Jake Peavy ready

Mon, 22 Jun 2015 05:52:16 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy (back) threw six innings in his final rehab start at Class AAA Sacramento, and manager Bruce Bochy said Peavy's next start could be next weekend against the Colorado Rockies.

Fantasy Tip: Peavy ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) was awful in his first two starts of the year, and it's really a roll of the FantasyScore dice in his first start back.

Giants | Jake Peavy could be activated when needed

Wed, 17 Jun 2015 17:51:29 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy (back) could be activated at any point, according to manager Bruce Bochy, but he will make one more rehab start before returning to the Giants rotation. Bochy has no plan for a six-man rotation at this point.

Fantasy Tip: Peavy ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) should be added in NL-only leagues, but mixed-league owners should wait it out to see what Peavy is capable of upon his return. Peavy holds a 9.39 ERA through two major league starts this season, although his strikeout rate was his highest at the major league level since the 2009 season.

Giants | Jake Peavy close

Tue, 09 Jun 2015 16:44:44 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy (back) is set to make his third rehab start for Class AAA Sacramento this week, and manager Bruce Bochy said Peavy will need at least one more rehab start before returning to the team.

Fantasy Tip: Peavy ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is much closer to returning to the rotation than Matt Cain, but it's unclear how the Giants will rearrange their staff to accomodate them. Peavy had a 9.39 ERA in his two starts this season before being injured, so it's unlikely he'll be anything more than a low-priced sleeper pick in the right matchup on FantasyScore.

Giants | Jake Peavy set for rehab start

Wed, 03 Jun 2015 11:12:19 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy (back) threw a 40-pitch bullpen session Wednesday, June 3, and used all of his pitches. He's slated to make a rehab start for Class AAA Sacramento Saturday, June 6, and he's expecting to throw 75 pitches.

Fantasy Tip: The Giants are being cautious with Peavy's ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) return, mainly because they don't have an obvious opening in the rotation when he's completely healthy. If he is given a rotation spot soon, Peavy is likely nothing more than a matchup play for a low daily price on FantasyScore. Owning Peavy in shallow mixed leagues would be for nothing more than a stream play.

Giants | Setback for Jake Peavy

Sun, 31 May 2015 04:34:26 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy (back) experienced back discomfort and will be slowed down in his rehab progress for a few days.

Fantasy Tip: Peavy ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is a pitcher that you need to watch. If he isn't totally healthy, then you should leave him alone. Still, don't drop him outright. Once he is recovered, it may take a little time but Peavy should rebound from these injuries.
