Giants | Chris Heston gets the nod Saturday

Fri, 22 May 2015 06:02:47 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Chris Heston will start Game 1 of the doubleheader at the Colorado Rockies Saturday, May 23.

Fantasy Tip: Heston ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) is a mid-priced starting pitcher with poor road splits this year. He offers strikeout potential but is a risky proposition for fantasy owners at Coors Field.

Fri, 22 May 2015 05:52:58 -0700

Giants | Hunter Pence with two more hits

Thu, 21 May 2015 19:01:50 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence went 2-for-4 with two RBIs in a 4-0 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers Thursday, May 21, and he has three multi-hit efforts in five games since returning from injury.

Fantasy Tip: Pence ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) has four RBIs and has scored five runs in five games this year, and he takes his hot bat to hitter friendly Coors Field next. He could make a solid option at FantasyScore all weekend.

Giants | Brandon Crawford out vs. Dodgers

Thu, 21 May 2015 10:24:59 -0700

San Francisco Giants SS Brandon Crawford is not in the starting lineup against a lefty Thursday, May 21. 3B Joaquin Arias is starting at the 6 and hitting sixth in the batting order against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw.

Fantasy Tip: Arias ($1,600, 3.2% of cap), a light-hitting utility infielder, should be avoided in daily games today against the best pitcher in baseball.

Giants | Joe Panik taking day off

Thu, 21 May 2015 10:24:27 -0700

San Francisco Giants 2B Joe Panik is not in the starting lineup Thursday, May 21. 2B Matt Duffy is starting at the keystone and hitting second in the batting order against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw.

Fantasy Tip: Duffy ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has been surprisingly productive for the Giants this year as a utility player, driving in 16 runs. However, you should see him as a weak play Thursday afternoon against the reigning NL Cy Young.

Giants | Madison Bumgarner strong against Dodgers

Thu, 21 May 2015 00:04:16 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner is 1-0 with a 1.88 ERA against the Los Angeles Dodgers this season. In his last 12 starts against the Dodgers, Bumgarner is 8-3 with a 1.94 ERA. Bumgarner will pitch Thursday, May 21.

Fantasy Tip: Bumgarner ($8,500, 17.0% of cap) is a gifted pitcher, but there's something about the Dodgers that brings out the best in Bumgarner. He is a definite start.

Giants | Buster Posey hit streak at 12 games

Wed, 20 May 2015 23:55:51 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey extended his hitting streak to 12 games Wednesday, May 20, against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Fantasy Tip: Posey ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) has been on a roll as of late, so don't sit him while he is on the hitting streak.

Giants | Tim Lincecum has terrific outing

Wed, 20 May 2015 22:33:15 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Tim Lincecum pitched seven scoreless innings against the Los Angeles Dodgers Wednesday, May 20. He allowed three hits while striking out four batters and walking two batters.

Fantasy Tip: Lincecum ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) has allowed runs in only one of his last four starts and currently has a 2.08 ERA. Lincecum could be a solid option for owners on FantasyScore against certain matchups.

Giants | Buster Posey plays well Wednesday

Wed, 20 May 2015 22:32:40 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey went 3-for-4 with one home run and two RBI against the Los Angeles Dodgers Wednesday, May 20.

Fantasy Tip: Posey ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) is currently on an eight-game winning streak and has 10 RBI in his last seven games. Owners on FantasyScore should consider using Posey on most nights.

Giants | Angel Pagan could lead off against lefties

Wed, 20 May 2015 16:36:59 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Angel Pagan is likely to hit leadoff more often against left-handed pitchers, according to manager Bruce Bochy. In those instances, OF Justin Maxwell would fill in in left field for OF Nori Aoki.

Fantasy Tip: Such a move would essentially make Aoki ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) a platoon player in left field and kill much of his value in traditional leagues. Pagan ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has fared well against southpaws this year, but a move to leadoff some of the time won't drastically affect his outlook at FantasyScore.

Giants | Casey McGehee taking day off

Wed, 20 May 2015 16:15:23 -0700

San Francisco Giants 3B Casey McGehee is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 20. 2B Matt Duffy is starting at third base and hitting eighth in the batting order against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Brett Anderson.

Fantasy Tip: Duffy ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has made the most of his opportunities this year and is batting .300 (24-for-80) with a home run and a surprising 16 RBI for the Gigantes. However, he hasn't found much success against lefties, and his placement at the bottom of the order says to skip him at FantasyScore.

Giants | No Brandon Belt Wednesday

Wed, 20 May 2015 16:10:27 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt is out of the starting lineup against a lefty Wednesday, May 20. C Buster Posey is moving to first base, which allows C Andrew Susac to draw a start. Susac is hitting sixth in the batting order against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Brett Anderson.

Fantasy Tip: Posey ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) is the most expensive catcher at FantasyScore, but he may struggle to justify his price, as he's hitting just .233 (7-for-30) with one home run and five RBI against lefties this year. With a full slate of games tonight, it's best to avoid Susac ($1,900, 3.8% of cap)

Giants | Nori Aoki out vs. southpaw

Wed, 20 May 2015 16:05:56 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Nori Aoki is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 20. OF Justin Maxwell is starting in left field and hitting fifth in the batting order against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Brett Anderson.

Fantasy Tip: All three of Maxwell's ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) home runs this year have come against right-handed pitchers, and he doesn't really move the needle all that much at FantasyScore. He's a very mediocre option tonight and shouldn't garner nearly as much attention as he's relegated to a fourth-outfield role.

Giants | Angel Pagan leading off Wednesday

Wed, 20 May 2015 15:55:10 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Angel Pagan is hitting leadoff against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Brett Anderson Wednesday, May 20, with OF Nori Aoki out of the lineup against a lefty.

Fantasy Tip: Pagan ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is having a fine season (.329-0-10 with four stolen bases), and he's also hitting .375 (15-for-40) with three RBI against lefties in 2015. Anderson has also struggled against lefty hitters this year, allowing a slash line of .340/.404/.383. Pagan, although he doesn't pose much of a threat to go deep, could fill up the stat sheet as a contrarian play Wednesday night.

Giants | Matt Cain moving to flat ground

Tue, 19 May 2015 17:48:11 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Matt Cain (elbow) threw off a mound Tuesday, May 19, and will move to throwing flat-ground breaking balls next.

Fantasy Tip: Cain ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) will be a risky option upon his return in both season-long leagues and on FantasyScore. The upside will be there, but Cain had already started a decline before dealing with multiple injuries during the last couple seasons.
