Giants | Jeff Samardzija absorbs sixth loss

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 14:16:45 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Jeff Samardzija fell to 1-2 over his last six starts Sunday, July 24, versus the New York Yankees, surrendering five runs on eight hits while only striking out three across 5 2/3 innings.

Fantasy Tip: Samardzija hasn't been the same since throwing a four-hitter on June 17, allowing nine homers while posting a 7.29 ERA since. His next next matchup doesn't figure to get any easier either - Friday versus the Washington Nationals and ace Max Scherzer. That start might be a good time for owners to reintroduce Samardzija to the bench, at least until he can return a more favorable result.

Giants | Joe Panik making progress

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 13:09:59 -0700

San Francisco Giants 2B Joe Panik (concussion) has turned a corner in his recovery from a concussion and is making progress, according to manager Bruce Bochy.

Fantasy Tip: Panik likely will need to go on a rehab assignment before he is cleared to play again, so he is still probably a few weeks away from returning. Panik posted solid numbers when he was healthy and will be a decent option in mixed leagues when he returns to the lineup.

Giants | Gregor Blanco sits again

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 09:09:43 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Gregor Blanco is not in the starting lineup against New York Yankees SP Nathan Eovaldi Sunday, July 24. OF Mac Williamson will start in right field and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Williamson has recorded at least one hit in five of his last seven games and has three home runs and seven RBI during that span. He can be a sleeper option for owners in daily fantasy leagues, and owners in deeper mixed leagues could consider him if he continues to see solid playing time.

Giants | Buster Posey will be DH

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 09:09:00 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey will serve as the designated hitter against New York Yankees SP Nathan Eovaldi Sunday, July 24. C Trevor Brown will start at catcher and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Posey is receiving a day off from playing in the field but will see his normal at-bats and should be starting in all leagues. Brown has recorded five hits and two RBI over the last three games and should be an attractive option in two-catcher leagues.

Giants | Hunter Strickland closes it out

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 18:05:46 -0700

San Francisco Giants RP Hunter Strickland threw a perfect inning against the New York Yankees Saturday, July 23, to pick up his second save of the season.

Fantasy Tip: The game went 12 innings, and closer Santiago Casilla had already thrown two scoreless frames. Strickland can be left on the waiver wire for now, but keep his name in mind if something happens to Casilla.

Giants | Buster Posey won't miss game

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 11:39:40 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey (foot) will start at catcher and bat fourth against New York Yankees SP Ivan Nova Saturday, July 23. Posey left the game Friday, July 22, after fouling a ball off his left foot, but X-rays were negative.

Fantasy Tip: Posey hasn't recorded a hit in four career at-bats against Nova, but he's still one of the most consistent catching plays night in and night out. It remains to be seen if he'll be hampered by the foot ailment, but he should still be started in seasonal leagues.

Giants | Mac Williamson starting Saturday

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 10:27:25 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Mac Williamson is starting in right field and batting eighth against New York Yankees SP Ivan Nova Saturday, July 23.

Fantasy Tip: Williamson only brings a .237 average into today's contest, but he has played well during the Giants' road trip so far. He has a long ball and four runs batted in in his last two games, including a pinch-hit RBi double last night. Williamson is worth a look as a cheap outfield play in daily contests.

Giants | Jarrett Parker the designated hitter

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 10:19:15 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Jarrett Parker will serve as the designated hitter and bat sixth against New York Yankees SP Ivan Nova Saturday, July 23.

Fantasy Tip: Parker had a good game yesterday, drawing two walks and scoring a run as the DH. He's not a bad buy-low option in daily formats facing a right-handed pitcher in a park that caters to left-handed hitters with good power.

Giants | Johnny Cueto to start Saturday

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 08:55:29 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Johnny Cueto will be the starting pitcher against the New York Yankees Saturday, July 23. SP Jeff Samardzija was originally scheduled to start Saturday but will now start Sunday, July 24.

Fantasy Tip: Cueto has allowed at least four runs in three of his last four starts but still has a 2.64 ERA this season. He should be a fine starting candidate in most fantasy leagues Saturday.

Giants | San Francisco looks at Andrew Cashner

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 08:25:06 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner received trade interest from the San Francisco Giants, but the Giants are looking for more bullpen help.

Fantasy Tip: Cashner is receiving interest from several teams and probably will be moved before the trade deadline. Cashner has been pitching well over the last few weeks and should be a decent fantasy option no matter where he plays.

Giants | Buster Posey exits with foot injury

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 20:10:14 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey (foot) exited against the New York Yankees Friday, July 22, after fouling a ball of his left foot. X-rays were negative and he is considered day-to-day.

Fantasy Tip: Trevor Brown will likely see most of the start for as long as Posey is out, and Brown could be a useful sleeper in DFS formats.

Giants | Hunter Pence, Joe Panik taking it slow

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 16:23:57 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence (hamstring) and 2B Joe Panik (concussion) are taking the day off in their rehab assignment at Class AAA Sacramento Friday, July 22. Pence's rest was planned, but Panik "just wasn't feeling great" after Thursday, July 21. General manager Bobby Evans said Panik has passed his concussion protocols and wasn't woozy. Rather, Panik's timing at the plate has been off. There remain no tentative dates for Pence and Panik to return from the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: The Giants are being very cautious with both of their regulars. Pence is the more attractive fantasy commodity and should still be stashed in all leagues as he nears a return. He isn't running anymore these days, but his .298 average and seven home runs looked nice before his injury. Panik offers very modest returns in all categories at the keystone and is more of a depth piece in deep mixed and NL-only leagues when he's back.

Giants | Matt Duffy close to rehab assignment

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 14:35:20 -0700

San Francisco Giants 3B Matt Duffy (Achilles') continues to make progress and is a week away from starting a rehab assignment.

Fantasy Tip: Duffy has posted an underwhelming .253/.313/.358 slash line this season with only four home runs and 21 RBI in 70 games. He's not worth stashing outside of very deep mixed leagues and NL-only universes.

Giants | SF monitoring Philly relievers

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 11:42:29 -0700

The San Francisco Giants are scouring the reliever market and have had a top scout watching Philadelphia Phillies RPs Jeanmar Gomez and David Hernandez.

Fantasy Tip: While not a dominant closer by any stretch, Santiago Casilla isn't in any danger of losing his ninth-inning job, so Gomez and Hernandez would just bolster the back end. Gomez is a low-end fantasy closer without many strikeouts, and he'd lose most of his value in a setup role with the Giants.

Giants | Trevor Brown has good game

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 23:53:36 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Trevor Brown went 3-for-5 with a home run, two runs scored and two RBI against the Boston Red Sox on Wednesday, July 20.

Fantasy Tip: Making his first appearance since July 3, Brown showed no signs of rust and continues to produce well (.261-5-15 in 111 ABs) behind Buster Posey. He doesn't play enough to warrant a roster spot, but if anything were to happen to Posey, Brown would deserve a look.
