Giants | Tim Lincecum may need surgery

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 11:08:47 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Tim Lincecum (hip) will visit with a hip specialist in Colorado Wednesday, Sept. 2, to determine if he'll need to have surgery on his degenerative hip. He's already visited multiple doctors for his injury, and he's expected to make a final decision tomorrow. Lincecum doesn't have severe pain, but he's bothered by instability that has often caused him to slip on the mound during his rehab. Doctors have told him he would be ready for spring training if he undergoes surgery, and they believe his velocity decline is directly related to his hip. Lincecum wasn't progressing as he hoped after receiving multiple cortisone shots.

Fantasy Tip: Either way, Lincecum ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has likely thrown his last pitch for the Giants this year, so he can be ignored everywhere. If he recovers in time for the regular season next year, he could be a flier in the late rounds of fantasy drafts, and as a free agent this winter, his best chances to make a fantasy impact in 2016 may be somewhere other than SF.

Giants | Gregor Blanco has sore neck

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 18:35:33 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Gregor Blanco (neck) is out of the lineup Tuesday, Sept. 1, against the Los Angeles Dodgers due to neck discomfort.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco's ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) injury doesn't sound too serious, but avoid him in FantasyScore until he can officially return and prove his health in a game or two without any lingering effects of the ailment.

Giants | Ehire Adrianza starts at SS

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 17:58:38 -0700

San Francisco Giants SS Ehire Adrianza is starting at shortstop and batting ninth Tuesday, Sept. 1, against the Los Angeles Dodgers in place of the injured SS Brandon Crawford (calf).

Fantasy Tip: Adrianza ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) isn't a bad late-game substitute in FantasyScore, especially if you want to bulk up at other positions with some extra salary.

Giants | Brandon Crawford out of lineup

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 17:55:57 -0700

San Francisco Giants SS Brandon Crawford (calf) was back out of the lineup Tuesday, Sept. 1, against the Los Angeles Dodgers due to a bruised calf.

Fantasy Tip: Crawford ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) was hit by pitch Monday. Normally we have these type of nagging injuries in the summer, and guys will try to play through. But once rosters expand, there is a lot more flexibility for teams, and they can rest a guy with a minor ailment more easily than when rosters are limited to 25.

Giants | Tim Hudson returns from DL

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 15:48:15 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Tim Hudson (shoulder) was activated from the disabled list Tuesday, Sept. 1.

Fantasy Tip: The plan is for Hudson ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) to pitch out of the bullpen primarily down the stretch, but he is expected to make at least one more start before the season is over. His fantasy value is at an all-time low, and he isn't worth a roster spot in the majority of seasonal leagues. Check back for an update on whether Hudson will grab another start before the end of the season.

Giants | Angel Pagan activated from DL

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 15:42:37 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Angel Pagan (knee) was activated from the disabled list Tuesday, Sept. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Pagan ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is having a disastrous season with a .258/.290/.308 slash line, no home runs and just six stolen bases. He is a desperation play in all fantasy formats outside of NL-only and cavernous mixed leagues where he checks out as a low-end outfielder. You should aim higher at FantasyScore until Pagan shows some life at the dish.

Giants | Alejandro De Aza to Bay Area

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 22:00:56 -0700

The San Francisco Giants acquired OF Alejandro De Aza from the Boston Red Sox Monday, Aug. 31. The return for the Red Sox is undisclosed.

Fantasy Tip: De Aza ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) will provide depth for the Giants and is only worth using in FantasyScore if he can return to a starting role at some point.

Giants | Tim Hudson to work in bullpen

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 18:46:30 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Tim Hudson (shoulder) was informed Monday, Aug. 31, that he will work out of the bullpen in a relief role, and will also see at least one start, in the final month of the regular season.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore players will want to avoid Hudson ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) until he returns to a starting role and also faces a very favorable matchup. Until then he is useless in a relief role.

Giants | Brandon Crawford back in the lineup

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 15:57:22 -0700

San Francisco Giants SS Brandon Crawford (oblique) is in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Brett Anderson Monday, Aug. 31, and is batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Crawford ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) has missed a handful of games because of the injury but has returned to the lineup. He is hitting .253 with three home runs and 11 RBI this month and could be a solid starting option if he is healthy.

Giants | Brandon Crawford may be back Monday

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 01:14:22 -0700

San Francisco Giants SS Brandon Crawford (oblique) took ground balls on Sunday, Aug. 30, prior to the game with the St. Louis Cardinals. He is expected to play Monday, Aug. 31, against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Fantasy Tip: As with any injured player, Crawford ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) should be watched carefully or even skipped in FantasyScore until he works out the kinks in his swing.

Giants | Chris Heston struggles Sunday

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 01:06:21 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Chris Heston struggled in his start Sunday, Aug. 30. Heston gave up five runs on nine hits in his 3 2-3 innings of work. He did not walk a batter and struck out one, matching his season low, in a 7-5 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: It's safe to say Heston struggled because it was the Cardinals, but the reality is Heston has struggled in the last couple months. He is 2-3 with a 4.06 ERA post All-Star break, and Heston has a 5.79 ERA in August. It's best to leave Heston on your bench.

Giants | Big game for Marlon Byrd

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 20:33:30 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Marlon Byrd went 3-for-4 with two doubles, a triple and four RBI in a 7-5 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals Sunday, Aug. 30.

Fantasy Tip: Byrd ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) has 14 RBI in nine games since joining the Giants, and he has 11 RBI in his last four. He makes a nice mid-priced option at FantasyScore with his new team.

Giants | Buster Posey returns to lineup

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 12:27:48 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey (elbow) is back in the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia Sunday, Aug. 30, batting cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: Posey ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) did not play because of minor elbow soreness Saturday, Aug. 29, but FantasyScore owners should feel free to insert him into their lineups Sunday. He is 4-for-12 against Garcia in his career with a double and an RBI.

Giants | Buster Posey out of lineup Saturday

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 11:10:35 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey is not in the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals SP Lance Lynn Saturday, Aug. 29. C Andrew Susac will start behind the plate and bat seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Remove Posey ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) from all daily fantasy lineups. Susac ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is batting just .150 (6-for-40) since July 1, and is not a great FantasyScore option this afternoon.

Giants | Marlon Byrd provides the spark

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 05:58:17 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Marlon Byrd went 1-for-5 with a grand slam during the Giants' 5-4 win over the St. Louis Cardinals Friday, Aug. 28.

Fantasy Tip: While Byrd ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) is just 7-for-28 since joining the Giants, he has three home runs and 10 RBI with a .930 OPS. It is a small sample size, but Byrd remains a solid contributor in the power categories. He has 22 home runs and 52 RBI for the season in just 103 games. It is easy to forget about the veteran, but he can help in deep mixed leagues.
