Giants | Buster Posey out Tuesday

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 17:13:57 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey is out of the starting lineup Tuesday, July 7, against the New York Mets. C Andrew Susac will start behind the plate and hit eighth in the order against RHP Bartolo Colon.

Fantasy Tip: Susac ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is hitting just .197 against right-handed pitchers, and he should be avoided on FantasyScore.

Giants | Hunter Pence activated, starting

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 15:57:15 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence (wrist) was activated from the disabled list Tuesday, July 7, and he is hitting cleanup against New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon.

Fantasy Tip: Pence ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) wasn't expected to return until after the All-Star break, but he made enough progress over the weekend to convince the Giants otherwise. It may be a risk to run with Pence immediately on FantasyScore, but he could also be an against-the-grain play with many not expecting him back just yet.

Giants | Tim Lincecum plays catch

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 17:45:19 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Tim Lincecum (forearm) was able to play catch Monday, July 6, as he makes his way back from a forearm contusion.

Fantasy Tip: Linecum ($4,200; or 8.4% of cap) should be avoided in FantasyScore until he can officially return and make his way through a full start without any setbacks.

Giants | Gregor Blanco leading off

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 16:45:06 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Gregor Blanco is hitting leadoff against New York Mets left-handed SP Jon Niese Monday, July 6. As a result, OF Angel Pagan was dropped to fifth in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) would typically be a great value play while hitting leadoff, but he's facing a left-hander tonight, which makes him a big risk. He's slashing .240/.296/.320 with no home runs and just two RBI against southpaws this year. Pagan ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is even riskier further down the lineup despite a .378/.416/.402 line against lefties in 2015.

Giants | Joe Panik not playing

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 16:44:02 -0700

San Francisco Giants 2B Joe Panik is not in the lineup against New York Mets left-handed SP Jon Niese Monday, July 6. 3B Joaquin Arias is starting at the keystone and hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Arias ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has very little power at the plate and is more known for his defense at multiple positions. He's one to avoid on FantasyScore this evening.

Giants | Brandon Crawford sitting vs. lefty

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 16:35:08 -0700

San Francisco Giants SS Brandon Crawford is not in the lineup against New York Mets left-handed SP Jon Niese Monday, July 6. SS Ehire Adrianza is starting at shortstop and hitting second.

Fantasy Tip: Adrianza ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) should be ignored in all daily games. He has one hit in five at-bats for the Gigantes this season.

Giants | Buster Posey riding hitting streak

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 11:27:11 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey is in the midst of an 11-game hitting streak in which he's batting .410 (16-for-39) with four home runs, 16 RBI and a 1.262 OPS. In his career against New York Mets SP Jon Niese, who he faces Monday, July 6, Posey is 8-for-22 with a home run.

Fantasy Tip: Posey ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) has a slash line of .262/.318/.443 with just two of his 14 home runs against left-handers this year. However, he's still one of the safest catcher plays, and his history against Niese is encouraging.

Giants | SF eyeing Cameron Maybin, Gerardo Parra

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 09:51:56 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Cameron Maybin and Milwaukee Brewers OF Gerardo Parra have caught the attention of the San Francisco Giants as they look to upgrade their outfield. Giants outfielders have just 12 home runs all season.

Fantasy Tip: Both Maybin ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) and Parra ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) are having fine seasons and have made their fantasy owners very happy. Maybin is the more valuable because of his mix of speed and power, but Parra has been a very nice value play on FantasyScore himself with Khris Davis on the DL. Both outfielders would likely lose a little fantasy luster with a move to San Fran and their pitching-friendly home environment. Also, their playing time might become cloudy once Nori Aoki and Hunter Pence return from injury.

Giants | Hunter Pence takes live BP

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 04:27:11 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence (wrist) took live batting practice on Sunday, July 5, for the first time since his wrist injury.

Fantasy Tip: Pence ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) will need more time to recuperate, so feel free to stash him in fantasy leagues and wait for him to recover.

Giants | Matt Duffy not starting Sunday

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 14:29:39 -0700

San Francisco Giants 3B Matt Duffy is not in the starting lineup Sunday, July 5, against the Washington Nationals. 3B Ehire Adrianza is starting instead.

Fantasy Tip: Duffy ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) is getting a day off after six straight games at third base this week. Adrianza carries little track record and therefore should be avoided until one is established.

Giants | Justin Maxwell out of Sunday lineup

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 14:12:33 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Justin Maxwell is not starting Sunday, July 5, against the Washington Nationals. OF Gregor Blanco is playing instead.

Fantasy Tip: Maxwell ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) looks like he's getting a regular night off because of Blanco's hot bat. Blanco ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has a .444 average and a .333 mark against right-handed pitchers, and the Nationals have Jordan Zimmermann going Sunday. Give Blanco a try in FantasyScore.

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.
