Giants | Brandon Belt drives in four

Fri, 01 Jul 2016 05:16:02 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt drove in four runs Thursday, June 30, in a 12-6 win over the Oakland Athletics.

Fantasy Tip: It has been another solid season for Belt (.300-10-42), and the best part is he appears to have cut down on the strikeouts. Belt has 57 in 78 games after ending last year with 147 whiffs. Belt should be played in all formats.

Giants | Madison Bumgarner a double threat in win

Fri, 01 Jul 2016 05:10:00 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner allowed four runs and seven hits, struck out four and didn't walk a batter in 6 1/3 innings of work Thursday, June 30, as the Giants beat the Oakland Athletics, 12-6. Bumgarner allowed two home runs, which matched his most for the season. Bumgarner snapped a two-start losing streak. He hasn't lost three straight starts since June 27-July 8, 2014. Bumgarner also went 1-for-4 at the plate.

Fantasy Tip: This game was noteworthy because of the Giants giving up the DH so Bumgarner could hit. Whatever the case, it sparked the team and it appeared to spark Bumgarner as well. He remains a solid option in all formats.

Giants | Ramiro Pena has sprained ankle

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 18:36:33 -0700

San Francisco Giants INF Ramiro Pena (ankle) will remain out of the starting lineup for five to seven days because of a sprained ankle, although he could be available to pinch-hit during this weekend's series against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Fantasy Tip: Pena is batting .400 with six RBI through 35 at-bats this season and should be owned in deep NL-only fantasy leagues due to his positional versatility. When healthy, he is also worth considering in DFS as a productive source of salary cap relief.

Giants | Grant Green at second Thursday

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 16:17:38 -0700

San Francisco Giants 2B Grant Green was recalled from the minors and is starting at second base and hitting seventh against Oakland Athletics SP Dillon Overton Thursday, June 30.

Fantasy Tip: Green hit just .190 with a homer and three RBI in 21 games for the Angels in 2015 and has very limited upside. He is likely to split time at the keystone with Ramiro Pena with Joe Panik (concussion) out, but Green's fantasy value is extremely limited.

Giants | Jake Peavy roughed up

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 22:30:56 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy allowed seven runs -- four earned -- on six hits in 3 1/3 innings against the Oakland Athletics on Wednesday, June 29.

Fantasy Tip: Over his last nine starts, Peavy has allowed two runs or fewer six times, but this is his second really rough outing in that stretch -- he gave up five runs in 1 2/3 innings on May 20 against the Cubs. While Peavy is still a viable starter in deeper mixed leagues, his inconsistency makes him a tough sell in standard formats.

Giants | Madison Bumgarner to bat for himself

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 22:17:18 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner will hit for himself against the Oakland Athletics on Thursday, June 30. It marks the first time since 1976 that a pitcher has intentionally batted for himself in an AL ballpark.

Fantasy Tip: This news doesn't affect fantasy owners, but it's interesting in that it hasn't happened in 40 years. For the record, Bumgarner's .175 average is 58 points below that of Mac Williamson, who has the lowest BA among position players.

Giants | Kelby Tomlinson rehab update

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 17:38:07 -0700

San Francisco Giants INF Kelby Tomlinson (thumb) will serve as the designated hitter during his rehab assignment this weekend for Class A San Jose, before continuing his assignment with Class AAA Sacramento next week.

Fantasy Tip: When healthy, Tomlinson should be viewed as an option for deep NL-only fantasy leagues and as an inexpensive flier for daily fantasy games. He was batting .289 with three RBI in 76 at-bats before landing on the disabled list.

Giants | Ruben Tejada to see time versus lefties

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 17:25:49 -0700

San Francisco Giants INF Ruben Tejada is expected to serve as the club's primary option at third base versus left-handed pitching, according to manager Bruce Bochy. He can also be used to back up SS Brandon Crawford.

Fantasy Tip: Tejada hit just .176 in 34 at-bats for the St. Louis Cardinals this season but was 4-for-12 versus southpaws and is a career .282 hitter against lefties. He's worth rostering in deep NL-only fantasy leagues and can be used as a productive source of cap relief in DFS whenever the Giants are facing a lefty.

Giants | Sergio Romo to pitch Thursday and Friday

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 17:21:01 -0700

San Francisco Giants RP Sergio Romo (elbow) will make back-to-back rehab appearances for Class AAA Sacramento Thursday, June 30, and Friday, July 1.

Fantasy Tip: Romo will return to a setup role when he is activated from the disabled list, so he is only worth rostering in NL-only fantasy leagues or as a handcuff for RP Santiago Casilla, who appears to be in no danger of losing his job as the closer.

Giants | Joe Panik put on 7-day DL

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 16:16:58 -0700

San Francisco Giants 2B Joe Panik (concussion) was placed on the 7-day concussion disabled list Wednesday, June 29, and SS Ruben Tejada was recalled from the minors in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Panik doesn't do anything particular well in any fantasy category that makes him valuable in mixed leagues. In his absence, Ramiro Pena or Tejada could see starts at the keystone, but neither have much offensive upside and can be ignored in most fantasy formats.

Giants | Joe Panik out again Wednesday

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 15:38:08 -0700

San Francisco Giants 2B Joe Panik (head) remains out of the starting lineup Wednesday, June 29. 2B Ramiro Pena is starting at the keystone and is hitting eighth against Oakland Athletics SP Sean Manaea.

Fantasy Tip: Panik is in the concussion protocol after concussion symptoms resurfaced for him after being beaned in the head around 10 days ago. There's a chance he could be put on the 7-day concussion DL if his symptoms don't clear soon. Stay tuned for updates. Pena has 14 hits in 34 at-bats (.412) for the Giants this year but only has eight career homers in seven seasons in the majors and is a weak-hitting, low-end DFS pick tonight.

Giants | Santiago Casilla struggles in non-save situation

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 23:51:11 -0700

San Francisco Giants RP Santiago Casilla surrendered three runs on three hits in one inning of work against the Oakland Athletics on Tuesday, June 28. He also walked two and struck out one.

Fantasy Tip: Casilla, who hadn't worked since Friday, entered the game with the Giants trailing 10-9 and let the A's build a four-run lead; the Giants would lose, 13-11. That broke a string of six straight scoreless outings, during which Casilla was 5-for-5 on save opportunities. He's obviously not an airtight option as a closer, but the Giants seem willing to work through these hiccups.

Giants | Conor Gillaspie has another four-hit night

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 23:37:57 -0700

San Francisco Giants 3B Conor Gillaspie went 4-for-5 with two runs scored against the Oakland Athletics on Tuesday, June 28.

Fantasy Tip: This was Gillaspie's second four-hit performance in eight games since Matt Duffy went on the DL. In that time, Gillaspie is 12-for-29 (.414) with a home run, six RBI and six runs scored. His long-term value is almost nil, but he could provide a short-term boost in NL-only setups.

Giants | Brandon Crawford drives in five

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 23:24:24 -0700

San Francisco Giants SS Brandon Crawford went 3-for-5 with a run scored and five RBI against the Oakland Athletics on Tuesday, June 28.

Fantasy Tip: Crawford came up a home run short of the cycle, but it was still a huge night with his five RBI matching a season high (set May 17 against the Padres). He's still without a home run in June, but his 49 RBI are one shy of Trevor Story/Xander Bogaerts, who lead the position with 50. Even with that, Crawford is better suited to larger mixed leagues until he rediscovers his power stroke.

Giants | Joe Panik was doing well

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 19:39:05 -0700

Updating a previous report, San Francisco Giants 2B Joe Panik (concussion) had passed concussion tests for three consecutive days. He was hit in the head 10 days ago against the Tampa Bay Rays, and is feeling concussion-like symptoms again.

Fantasy Tip: Panik should be avoided in all fantasy leagues and DFS play until he is able to officially return and play a full game or two without any lingering effects of his injury.
