Giants | Angel Pagan remains at leadoff

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 17:44:26 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Angel Pagan remains atop the batting order Monday, July 27, against the Milwaukee Brewers.

Fantasy Tip: Pagan ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) continues to lead off despite the return of Nori Aoki from the 15-day disabled list. Pagan's FantasyScore value is obviously much higher at leadoff than in the eighth spot of the batting order.

Giants | Nori Aoki batting eighth

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 17:43:46 -0700

Updating a previous report, San Francisco Giants OF Nori Aoki (leg) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Monday, July 27, and he is starting in left field and batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Give Aoki a few games to get knock off the rust before trusting him in your FantasyScore lineup again.

Giants | Chris Heston has been hard to hit

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 17:07:58 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Chris Heston is 5-1 with a 1.83 ERA in his last eight starts, and he has allowed three runs or less in each of those eight starts.

Fantasy Tip: Heston ($7,400, 14.8% of cap) faces the Milwaukee Brewers tonight. The Brewers have the third highest OPS (.805) in the month of July, so Heston isn't a slam dunk on FantasyScore. However, pitching in San Fran should help, where he has a 2.57 ERA.

Giants | Hunter Pence owns Kyle Lohse

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 17:00:21 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence is 18-for-53 (.340) in his career against Milwaukee Brewers SP Kyle Lohse, who he faces Monday, July 27.

Fantasy Tip: Pence ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) makes for a solid play tonight on FantasyScore given his history against Lohse and Lohse's struggles in 2015.

Giants | SF checking in on Jeff Samardzija

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 16:29:43 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Jeff Samardzija is attracting interest from the San Francisco Giants. The Toronto Blue Jays continue to make the biggest push for him, however.

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear if the White Sox are serious yet about actually trading Samardzija ($6,800, 13.6% of cap), but a trade to the National League and the pitcher-friendly environment of San Fran would definitely be more attractive to his owners than a move to Toronto and the American League East.

Giants | Nori Aoki activated

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 16:15:06 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Nori Aoki (leg) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Monday, July 27, and 3B Joaquin Arias was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Aoki ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is back in the starting lineup hitting eighth tonight against Milwaukee Brewers starter Kyle Lohse. While there's plenty of risk starting Aoki tonight in his first game back and while hitting at the bottom of the lineup, the matchup against Lohse is a solid one for FantasyScore users.

Giants | SF interested in Aroldis Chapman

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 15:07:21 -0700

Cincinnati Reds RP Aroldis Chapman has received an inquiry from the San Francisco Giants, but no offers from the two teams have been exchanged yet.

Fantasy Tip: Chapman would surely be closing on another club if he were to be traded, so his fantasy value is unlikely to change all that much as an elite closing option. Have J.J. Hoover close by this week if you're speculating on saves, as he'd likely be next in line to pitch the ninth inning if Chapman leaves town.

Giants | Season high for Buster Posey

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 16:51:36 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey recorded a season-high four hits in a 4-3 win over the Oakland Athletics Sunday, July 26, finishing 4-for-4 with a double and a run scored.

Fantasy Tip: Posey ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) is hitting .328 for the year and is on pace for 111 RBI. If you are going to pay up for a catcher at FantasyScore, make sure it is Posey.

Giants | Tim Hudson joins rare group

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 16:48:19 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Tim Hudson allowed three runs on seven hits in five innings in a win over the Oakland Athletics Sunday, July 26, becoming the 15th pitcher to record a win against all 30 major league teams.

Fantasy Tip: Hudson ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) joined a short list of pitchers, but he owns a 4.80 ERA for the year, and doesn't offer much upside at FantasyScore because of his low strikeout totals.

Giants | Joe Panik keeps hitting

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 18:52:02 -0700

San Francisco Giants 2B Joe Panik went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored in a 2-1 win over the Oakland Athletics Saturday, July 25.

Fantasy Tip: Panik ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) has five multi-hit games in his last eight and has scored seven runs during the stretch. His average is up to .315, and he is one of the safest options at his position at FantasyScore most days.

Giants | Madison Bumgarner does it all

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 18:46:38 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner allowed one run on five hits and struck out seven over seven innings and hit a solo home run in a win over the Oakland Athletics Saturday, July 25.

Fantasy Tip: Bumgarner ($9,300, 18.6% of cap) has had an occasional rough outing this year, but he has allowed two runs or less in seven of his last eight starts, including three straight. He is also averaging a strikeout per inning, which makes him worth considering at FantasyScore against most opponents.

Giants | Brandon Belt plates three runs

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 05:32:53 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt went 2-for-5 with a run, a double and three RBI during the Giants' 9-3 win over the Oakland Athletics Friday, July 24.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners wouldn't mind a few more round trippers, but all said, Belt ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) is having an excellent season. Most importantly, and especially for him, he has remained healthy. He has 44 runs, 10 home runs, 40 RBI, five stolen bases and a .277/.353/.476 slash line, and should be viewed as a low-end starter at first base and mid-tier starting outfielder in the majority of formats. FantasyScore players should only roster Belt when he faces a favorable right-handed pitcher.

Giants | Hunter Pence has another big night

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 05:27:51 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence went 4-for-5 with a run, two doubles and two RBI during the Giants' 9-3 win over the Oakland Athletics Friday, July 24.

Fantasy Tip: Pence ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) is 18-for-51 with six runs, five doubles, three home runs, 15 RBI and a 1.016 OPS over 12 games since returning from the disabled list Tuesday, July 7. He should be viewed as a second-tier outfielder in all fantasy formats going forward, and Pence is a worthy FantasyScore target when facing favorable opposing pitchers.

Giants | SF interested in Mike Leake

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 18:45:52 -0700

The San Francisco Giants have expressed interest in Cincinnati Reds SP Mike Leake.

Fantasy Tip: Even though San Francisco appears to have a surplus of starters, they are considering acquiring Leake ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) because several of their pitchers have age or injury concerns. Leake is 8-5 with a 3.78 ERA through 20 starts this season.

Giants | Nori Aoki needs more time

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 16:26:52 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Nori Aoki (leg) is expected to play at least two more rehab games before returning to the team, according to manager Bruce Bochy.

Fantasy Tip: Aoki ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is worth owning in the majority of seasonal leagues, as he tips the scales plenty in runs, batting average and stolen bases. FantasyScore owners will want to allow him to settle back in at the dish before utilizing him in contests. It is also worth noting, given the nature of his injury, Aoki may not be as aggressive on the base paths upon returning.
