Giants | Johnny Cueto should make next start

Mon, 30 May 2016 10:07:53 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Johnny Cueto (back, side) should be able to make his next start even though he is dealing with some injuries, according to manager Bruce Bochy.

Fantasy Tip: Cueto has pitched very well in his first season with Giants, but owners should monitor the situation to see if he suffers any setbacks. Cueto should be a starting candidate in all leagues as long as he is healthy.

Giants | Gregor Blanco receives day off

Mon, 30 May 2016 08:16:23 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Gregor Blanco is not in the starting lineup against Atlanta Braves SP Mike Foltynewicz Monday, May 30. OF Jarrett Parker will start in left field and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Parker has recorded four hits in his last five games and has one RBI during that span. Parker could be a sleeper option in some daily fantasy leagues, but owners should be able to find better options to use.

Giants | Buster Posey not starting

Mon, 30 May 2016 08:09:56 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey is not in the starting lineup against Atlanta Braves SP Mike Foltynewicz Monday, May 30. C Trevor Brown will start at catcher and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Brown has recorded at least one hit in three of his last four games and is hitting .250 in limited playing time this season. Brown should be an option in two-catcher leagues and may have some value in daily fantasy leagues.

Giants | Hunter Pence pounds three doubles

Sun, 29 May 2016 20:26:16 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence went 3-for-5 with three doubles, three RBI and two runs scored in an 8-3 win over the Colorado Rockies Sunday, May 29.

Fantasy Tip: Pence pushed his average back over .300, and he is on pace for more than 100 RBI. After injuries ruined his 2015 campaign, Pence is back to being an every-day starter in all fantasy formats.

Giants | Sore back for Johnny Cueto

Sun, 29 May 2016 20:17:59 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Johnny Cueto (back) dealt with a sore back that was stretched frequently between innings, but he made it through six innings in a win over the Colorado Rockies, allowing one earned run on six hits while walking two and striking out five Sunday, May 29.

Fantasy Tip: The fact that the Giants let Cueto stay in the game would seem to indicate that the back issue isnít too serious. That being said, monitor the situation to make sure is able to make his next start.

Giants | Joe Panik receives day off

Sun, 29 May 2016 12:05:43 -0700

San Francisco Giants 2B Joe Panik is not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Chris Rusin Sunday, May 29. 2B Kelby Tomlinson will start at second base and is batting second in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Tomlinson is hitting .439 so far this month but has only two RBI in his last eight games. He can be a decent sleeper option in some daily fantasy leagues because of his recent play.

Giants | Six RBI for Buster Posey

Sat, 28 May 2016 20:23:23 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey hit a pair of three-run home runs in a 10-5 win over the Colorado Rockies Saturday, May 28.

Fantasy Tip: Posey isn't having the best season of his career, but he is still one the stronger offensive catchers and an every-day starter in all formats.

Giants | Matt Cain could be placed on DL

Sat, 28 May 2016 12:26:00 -0700

The San Francisco Giants plan to place SP Matt Cain (hamstring) on the 15-day disabled list due to a right hamstring injury suffered during the second inning of his start against the Colorado Rockies Friday, May 27. The move is not yet official because the team would like to review his MRI exam results first.

Fantasy Tip: If Cain is unable to pitch Wednesday, June 1, Albert Suarez would likely receive the starting nod against the Atlanta Braves, after tossing five innings in relief Friday. A DL stint for Cain would probably result in former first-round pick Chris Stratton being promoted to the majors to serve as a long reliever but he would have little fantasy value in that particular role.

Giants | Denard Span has hip injury

Sat, 28 May 2016 12:01:02 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Denard Span (hip) has been scratched from the starting lineup against the Colorado Rockies Saturday, May 28, because of a bruised right hip. OF Gregor Blanco will bat leadoff and play center field in his place, with OF Jarrett Parker batting seventh and playing left field.

Fantasy Tip: Span is experiencing some residual soreness after crashing into the outfield wall earlier this week but the injury is considered minor. Blanco is 3-for-8 with a pair of doubles in his career versus Rockies SP Eddie Butler, so DFS players may want to consider taking a flier on him this afternoon. Parker is just 3-for-14 this season and is nothing more than a source of desperation cap relief.

Giants | Brandon Belt, Hunter Pence playing Saturday

Sat, 28 May 2016 10:28:35 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt (ankle) and OF Hunter Pence (hamstring) are back in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Eddie Butler Saturday, May 28.

Fantasy Tip: Both players have favorable matchups this afternoon. Belt is hitting .311 on the road this season and is 3-for-5 with a double and an RBI in his career versus Butler. Pence is batting .301 with three home runs and 14 RBI this month and is 2-for-2 with a double against Butler.

Giants | Matt Cain hurts hamstring, MRI scheduled

Fri, 27 May 2016 23:21:56 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Matt Cain (hamstring) threw just 26 pitches against the Colorado Rockies on Friday, May 25, before he was removed after straining his right hamstring. Manager Bruce Bochy said after the game that Cain was scheduled to undergo an MRI tomorrow and could end up on the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: This is a potentially discouraging setback for Cain, who had really turned things around in his last three starts -- 21 innings, 19 hits, four runs and 23 K's -- and was looking like the ace he once was. We'll need an update before anything is certain, but it appears as though Cain will miss some time.

Giants | Brandon Belt feels ready to play

Fri, 27 May 2016 15:43:43 -0700

Updating a previous report, San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt (ankle) said he could play Friday, May 27, or Saturday, May 28, after he took batting practice in the batting cage Friday. Belt sprained his left ankle sliding into second base during the game against the San Diego Padres Wednesday, May 25.

Fantasy Tip: Injuries seem to always creep up and limit Belt from fulfilling the upside he flashes in spurts. However, it seems he will be able to return soon this time. Thus far, Belt has a respectable 22 runs and 22 RBI with a .276/.407/.442 slash line, but owners hope he beefs up the power, as he sits with just four long flies. Check back to see if Belt returns to the starting lineup Saturday.

Giants | Brandon Belt, Hunter Pence remain out

Fri, 27 May 2016 14:33:58 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt (ankle) and OF Hunter Pence (hamstring) remain out of the starting lineup Friday, May 27. C Trevor Brown is starting at first base and hitting eighth, while OF Jarrett Parker is in right field and batting seventh against Colorado Rockies SP Tyler Chatwood.

Fantasy Tip: Both Belt and Pence are considered day-to-day and could return to the lineup as soon as tomorrow. Get them both back into starting lineups everywhere when they're ready. The young Parker has serious power upside (23 homers last year in minors), so he's worth a cheap flier in DFS. Brown has surprised with four home runs in 56 at-bats as the backup catcher. His upside is limited low in the order, but you can do worse as a low-end catcher to save salary cap space tonight.

Giants | Brandon Belt could return Friday

Thu, 26 May 2016 08:48:56 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt (ankle) could return to play against the Colorado Rockies Friday, May 27, after X-rays on his mild left ankle sprain came back negative. "It didn't look great," Belt told reporters. "But I feel like unless something happens (on Thursday) and I wake up and it's swollen, I feel like I'll be able to play Friday."

Fantasy Tip: The Giants are off on Thursday, so Belt may not wind up missing any games at all. His owners may have dodged a bullet, as Belt has been contributing nice numbers (.276-4-22) as a solid starting fantasy first baseman in all leagues. Check back Friday to make sure he's back in there before putting him back into your starting lineup.

Giants | Jake Peavy tosses quality start

Wed, 25 May 2016 18:53:53 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy allowed one run on six hits over 6 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the San Diego Padres Wednesday, May 25, with one walk and four strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Peavy was 1-5 with an 8.21 ERA in nine games entering play Wednesday, so this was easily one of his best outings of 2016. Avoid using him in DFS for now so that Peavy can prove that this performance wasn't a fluke.
