Fantasy Tip: Panik ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) has missed three of the last six games, and it sounds like his back issue is a lingering problem. He has been one of the steadier options at second base, but you will have to monitor his status one game-to-game basis if you plan on using him at FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Panik ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) has missed two of the past four games due to back issues, so keep an eye on how this plays out in the future. Adrianza ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) does not have fantasy value thanks to his .136 average.

Fantasy Tip: Aoki ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) does not have a hit in three appearances at the No. 2 slot, but he does hit .343 against lefties like Rangers starter Martin Perez. He is worth the start thanks to the favorable FantasyScore matchup.

Fantasy Tip: Lincecum ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has been on the disabled list since getting hit in the arm, but he's also dealing with deterioration of his hips. It is unclear when he'll be able to return to the mound this season, and he should only be stashed in deeper NL-only leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Casilla has 27 saves in 31 chances this season, with a 2.89 ERA and a 9.40 K/9. Casilla has blown just two saves since the beginning of June, and he's an extremely safe fantasy commodity.

Fantasy Tip: Belt ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) has 12 home runs for the season, after hitting just one homer in July. Owners will want to see this power surge continue in order to get some upside out of Belt.

San Francisco Giants C Hector Sanchez will start behind the plate and hit ninth in the order Saturday, Aug. 1, against the Texas Rangers and LHP Cole Hamels. C Buster Posey will hit fourth in the order and serve as the designated hitter.
Fantasy Tip: Sanchez ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) won't be worth looking at on FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Maxwell ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is hitting a meager .212 against southpaws this season, and he should be avoided for FantasyScore contests.

Fantasy Tip: Panik ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) has been very consistent this year and is in a great lineup position for daily success. Facing struggling starter Martinez is just another reason to feel good about having him in your daily lineup tonight, too, even if he is returning from a short absence.

Fantasy Tip: It is safe to drop Hudson in the majority of fantasy leagues, as Mike Leake will replace him in the starting rotation. Still, Hudson could make a few starts before the year is over, so don't write him off completely.
Fri, 31 Jul 2015 15:33:44 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Leake ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) is a low-end starting pitcher who is worth owning in the majority of leagues. Owners should be selective with his starts, though, and a road game against Texas isn't an ideal spot for Leake. FantasyScore players should consider him a risky No. 2 starting pitcher Sunday.

San Francisco Giants SP Tim Hudson will be bumped from the rotation after the Giants acquired SP Mike Leake from the Cincinnati Reds. Leake is 9-5 with a 3.56 ERA in 21 starts this year, including 4-0 with a 0.60 ERA in his last four starts. Leake could join the Giants as early as Friday, July 31.
Fantasy Tip: Hudson can now be dropped in all formats. Leake ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) was already on the rise in fantasy circles before this trade, and his value is now boosted further with this move to a very friendly pitching environment in San Fran. He becomes a much more acceptable play on FantasyScore, too.

Fantasy Tip: Leake ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) has been excellent in July, and he should be able to maintain the momentum and remain a solid value play at FantasyScore for at least a little while now that he is staying in the NL. However, his career numbers suggest he will cool at some point.

Fantasy Tip: Price ($9,100, 18.2% of cap) is a FantasyScore stud wherever he pitches.

Detroit Tigers SP David Price is a potential trade target for the San Francisco Giants, one of four teams in contact with the Tigers. The other teams are the Los Angeles Dodgers, New York Yankees and Toronto Blue Jays.
Fantasy Tip: Price ($9,100, 18.2% of cap) is a stud FantasyScore option, but moving to AT&T Park would give him a bump in value. According to MLB Park Factors, AT&T Park ranks 29th in the majors in runs scored, with the least amount of home runs yielded in the league.
