San Francisco Giants news, rumors and injuries
Tue, 01 Sep 2015 18:35:33 -0700
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.
Tue, 01 Sep 2015 17:58:38 -0700
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.
Tue, 01 Sep 2015 17:55:57 -0700
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.

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.

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.

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

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.
Sun, 30 Aug 2015 12:27:48 -0700
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.
Sat, 29 Aug 2015 11:10:35 -0700
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.
Sat, 29 Aug 2015 05:58:17 -0700
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.
Fri, 28 Aug 2015 18:56:08 -0700
Fantasy Tip: It is uncertain if Lincecum ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) will rejoin the rotation or head to the bullpen when he is healthy enough to return. If he does return to a starting role, FantasyScore owners should avoid using him in his first game back so that he can prove he is both healthy and effective.
