Giants | Angel Pagan should play Sunday

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 13:38:39 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Angel Pagan (knee) should be back Sunday, July 5, after missing two of the last three games. Pagan dealt with swelling in his left knee during the last series.

Fantasy Tip: Pagan ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) doesn't have a lot of upside with knee woes on top of a meager .269-0-19 line this season. Avoid him on FantasyScore.

Giants | Buster Posey homers again

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 18:43:35 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey hit a solo home run in a 2-1 loss to the Washington Nationals Friday, July 3, and he has three home runs in his last four games.

Fantasy Tip: Posey ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) has been an RBI machine lately, driving in 16 over his last nine games. If you want to pay up for an elite catcher at FantasyScore, Posey is the player to invest in.

Giants | Jake Peavy solid in return

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 18:29:30 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy (back) took the loss in his first start since being activated from the disabled list, allowing two runs on three hits and striking out in 6 1/3 innings against the Washington Nationals Friday, July 3.

Fantasy Tip: Peavy ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) had struggled in his first two starts of the year before landing on the DL, but he turned in his best performance of the year Friday. He was actually solid with the Giants at the end of last season, but with his best years well behind him, Peavy is likely to be inconsistent from one start to the next and a risky option at FantasyScore.

Giants | Santiago Casilla avoids disabled list

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 12:46:48 -0700

San Francisco Giants RP Santiago Casilla (arm) will not be placed on the disabled list, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Sergei Romo projects to receive the majority of save opportunities while Casilla is recovering from arm fatigue. Although, Javier Lopez is also in the equation. Saves chasers will want to target Romo first, as he has more fleeting value. Continue to check back for updates on Casilla.

Giants | Brandon Belt out Friday

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 11:24:42 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt is out of the lineup Friday, July 3, with C Andrew Susac behind the plate and C Buster Posey at first base.

Fantasy Tip: Susac ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is hitting fifth against lefty Gio Gonzalez. Susac is hitting .344 in 32 at-bats against lefties this season. He's a prime bargain play on FantasyScore today.

Giants | Jake Peavy activated from DL

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 10:58:33 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy (back) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Friday, July 3. SP Tim Hudson (shoulder) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right shoulder strain.

Fantasy Tip: Peavy ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) faces a talented Washington Nationals lineup and doesn't have a lot of upside on FantasyScore. Hudson isn't worth stashing except maybe in NL-only leagues if you have the space.

Giants | Buster Posey hits 13th homer

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 16:39:40 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey hit his 13th home run of the season Thursday, July 2, against the Miami Marlins.

Fantasy Tip: Posey ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) showed no ill effects from taking a ball off his mask Wednesday. Posey is the class of the catcher position, but FantasyScore owners need to pick the right matchups before investing at such a high price.

Giants | Gregor Blanco homers in loss

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 16:34:38 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Gregor Blanco homered Thursday, July 2, against the Miami Marlins.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) hadn't hit a home run since May 16, but he's been able to contribute via a high batting average and scoring runs. Blanco can be considered whenever he starts against a right-handed pitcher.

Giants | Matt Cain shaky in return

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 15:59:18 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Matt Cain (elbow) made his first start of the season Thursday, July 2, against the Miami Marlins and struggled a bit, going five innings and surrendering five runs on seven hits, including two home runs, while striking out two and walking four.

Fantasy Tip: Overall, it wasn’t a good return to the mound for Cain ($4,300, 8.6% of cap), though he was pitching just fine until a troubling fifth inning when the Marlins tagged him for four of their five runs on the day. Despite the off outing, Cain is absolutely still worth a speculative add at the very least, and he still could be a solid option on FantasyScore based on the matchups, especially when he’s working from home in pitcher-friendly San Francisco. The 30-year-old amassed an impressive 55 wins over a four-year stretch from 2009-2012 and can still be useful for fantasy rotations if he remains healthy.

Giants | Tim Lincecum to DL

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 09:09:33 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Tim Lincecum (forearm) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right forearm contusion. The move is retroactive to June 28.

Fantasy Tip: Lincecum probably won't have a rotation spot to return to, barring another injury. He can be dumped in most formats. Matt Cain ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) takes his spot, but he's a watch list guy right now.

Giants | Andrew Susac catching

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 09:04:01 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Andrew Susac is behind the plate and hitting seventh against Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez Thursday, July 2. C Buster Posey is starting at first base.

Fantasy Tip: Susac ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is an intriguing sleeper catcher option on FantasyScore some of the time, especially since he receives semi-regular playing time with Posey moving to first often. However, he's one to avoid against former National League Rookie of the Year Fernandez, even though it's his first start in over a year due to injury.

Giants | Angel Pagan resting

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 08:33:34 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Angel Pagan is out of the lineup Thursday, July 2, with OF Gregor Blanco in his place at leadoff.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is having a nice season with a .314-1-15 clip, but he draws Jose Fernandez in his season debut. The upside isn't there, but the price and spot in the lineup is right if you need a low-priced outfield option on FantasyScore.

Giants | Santiago Casilla out a few days

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 08:23:06 -0700

San Francisco Giants RP Santiago Casilla (arm) will be given a few days off due to arm fatigue, according to manager Bruce Bochy. RPs Sergio Romo and Javier Lopez will close out games based on matchups.

Fantasy Tip: Romo is the righty, has the experience and will probably see the bulk of the opportunities with Casilla out. He's likely gone in NL-only leagues, but if you're fetching for saves in mixed leagues, grab him.

Giants | Matt Cain activated

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 07:45:23 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Matt Cain (elbow) was activated from the disabled list Thursday, July 2, and faces the Miami Marlins.

Fantasy Tip: The Fish are without Giancarlo Stanton, but Cain ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) isn't the same pitcher he once was. Give him a start or two before using him on FantasyScore.

Giants | Buster Posey back in there

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 07:44:53 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey (head) is in the lineup Thursday, July 2, at first base a day after exiting from a foul ball off his catcher's mask.

Fantasy Tip: Posey ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) is 11-for-22 with a homer and nine RBI the last seven days, but he faces off against Jose Fernandez. The matchup isn't the greatest, but it is Fernandez's first start since Tommy John surgery. Posey is a solid option on FantasyScore.
