Giants | Angel Pagan hitting third

Sat, 25 Apr 2015 13:39:25 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Angel Pagan is hitting third Saturday, April 25, against a left-handed starter.

Fantasy Tip: Pagan is hitting .329 on the season and is 7-for-16 (.438) against left-handers. At just $2,700 (5.4% of your cap), he's an excellent low-end outfield flyer.

Giants | Brandon Belt sitting Saturday

Sat, 25 Apr 2015 13:38:48 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt is out of the lineup Saturday, April 25, against a left-handed starter.

Fantasy Tip: Buster Posey ($5,600, 11.2% of your cap) shifts to first base, and he is an everyday catcher option on FantasyScore.

Giants | Hunter Pence hits in cage

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 16:14:33 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence (arm) took soft toss in the cages Friday, April 24, and manager Bruce Bochy thinks Pence will be playing in minor league games by next Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Pence ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) won't be ready by May 1, but he could be ready to return not far after that. In the meantime, Justin Maxwell ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has impressed Bruce Bochy enough to see regular playing time in right field over Gregor Blanco. Maxwell, however, is, at best, a flyer at FantasyScore as a matchup play.

Giants | Matt Cain to throw next week

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 15:41:48 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Matt Cain (forearm) is scheduled to play catch next week, but he's weeks away from resuming throwing off a mound.

Fantasy Tip: Cain ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) is a long ways away from returning to the starting rotation, but he should still be stashed away in a DL slot in the majority of fantasy baseball leagues. Rookie Chris Heston ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) has benefitted the most from Cain's absence, and he's proving to be valuable at FantasyScore as a low-priced pitching option in the right matchups.

Giants | Justin Maxwell remains in lineup

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 14:10:47 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Justin Maxwell is starting in right field and hitting sixth in the batting order against Colorado Rockies SP Eddie Butler Friday, April 24.

Fantasy Tip: Maxwell ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has provided a spark for this offense in the last week, and he's started the last three games. He'll be an under-the-radar option at FantasyScore tonight, but it could pay off while starting at hitter-friendly Coors Field.

Giants | Norichika Aoki resting Friday

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 14:02:42 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Norichika Aoki is not in the starting lineup Friday, April 24. OF Gregor Blanco is starting in left field and hitting leadoff against Colorado Rockies SP Eddie Butler.

Fantasy Tip: Stacking your FantasyScore lineups with Giants while in Coors Field against Butler isn't a bad idea. That continues with Blanco ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) at the top of the order, even though he's hitting just .220 (9-for-41) to start the year. Blanco could give you a nice opportunity to change it up on your opponents.

Giants | Ryan Vogelsong to stay in rotation

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 16:07:52 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Ryan Vogelsong will stay in the starting rotation, manager Bruce Bochy confirmed. Vogelsong's next start will come against the Los Angeles Dodgers on the road.

Fantasy Tip: Vogelsong ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) had a rough start to the year pitching in relief, but he bounced back with a solid outing against the Dodgers Thursday Thursday. Vogelsong won't be all that attractive at FantasyScore, and he'll purely be a matchup play, preferably at pitcher-friendly locations.

Giants | Hunter Pence graduates to wooden bat

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 13:06:58 -0700

Updating a previous report, San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence (arm) graduated to hitting off a tee with a wooden bat Thursday, April 23. It will be awhile before he is cleared to take batting practice, and after that, he will have to be cleared again to face live pitching.

Fantasy Tip: Pence ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is likely closer to a month away from returning than two weeks. But fantasy owners should continue to be patient and stash him in all formats. He is a rare contributor who is capable of tipping the scales in all fantasy categories. However, it is worth noting he is returning from an arm injury, and it could negatively impact his hitting ability. Continue to check back for updates on his recovery progress and a more concrete return timeline.

Giants | Hunter Pence plays some catch

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 11:40:59 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence (arm) played catch Wednesday, April 22, but still had pain when he turns his wrist. His bone is close to being fully healed.

Fantasy Tip: Pence ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) won't be back by May 1, as it's taking him a little longer to heal. Gregor Blanco ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) and Justin Maxwell ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) will continue to switch off in right field in Pence's absence. Maxwell has started the last three games. Neither outfielder is a great FantasyScore play, and you'll want to ride the matchups.

Giants | Justin Maxwell with third straight start

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 10:43:48 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Justin Maxwell is starting in right field Thursday, April 23, against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Fantasy Tip: Maxwell ($1,600, 3.2% of your cap) is making his third straight start over OF Gregor Blanco. Maxwell has an average .280-1-4 line leaves a bit to be desired in a low-end flyer on FantasyScore. Blanco is losing playing time and should be avoided altogether.

Giants | Ryan Vogelsong starting Thursday

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 16:58:40 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Ryan Vogelsong is starting against the Los Angeles Dodgers Thursday, April 23.

Fantasy Tip: Vogelsong ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) allowed seven earned runs through 4 2/3 innings in his only start of the season, and the Dodgers bring an admirable offense to face him. Despite his minimal cap hit, start Vogelsong at your own risk in FantasyScore contests.

Giants | Casey McGehee being rested

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 16:01:32 -0700

San Francisco Giants 3B Casey McGehee is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 22. 2B Joaquin Arias is starting at the hot corner and hitting seventh in the batting order against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw.

Fantasy Tip: McGehee ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is off to a terrible start with his new club (.171, 6-for-35), and injuries haven't helped his cause. Arias ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is more known for his defense, and he, too, is off to a slow start (.143, 2-for-14). Avoid Arias against Kershaw tonight at FantasyScore.

Giants | Gregor Blanco sitting vs. lefty

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 15:57:58 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Gregor Blanco is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 22. OF Justin Maxwell is starting in right field and hitting fifth in the batting order against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw.

Fantasy Tip: Maxwell ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) broke through with a home run and triple in the team's win Tuesday night. He's a mediocre FantasyScore choice, at best, against Kershaw, though. Maxwell has hit just .236 (78-for-331) in his career against lefties.

Giants | Joe Panik out Wednesday

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 15:52:47 -0700

San Francisco Giants 2B Joe Panik is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 22. 2B Matt Duffy is starting at second base and hitting second in the batting order against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw.

Fantasy Tip: Duffy ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) hit well in a small sample size against lefties in 2014, going 12-for-30 (.400) with three RBI, but that doesn't mean you should look to him at FantasyScore against Kershaw. Go elsewhere for your second base option.

Giants | Tim Lincecum pitching well

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 23:08:10 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Tim Lincecum held the Los Angeles Dodgers to a run on five hits and three walks while fanning five in six innings to win Tuesday, April 21. He's 1-1 with a 2.00 ERA and a 1.22 WHIP on the season.

Fantasy Tip: Lincecum ($3,700, 7.4% of your cap) is still issuing too many walks, but he isn't being knocked around as much. His next start is in Coors Field, which is a resounding "no go" on FantasyScore.
