Giants | Kelby Tomlinson hits slam Thursday

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 18:24:48 -0700

San Francisco Giants 2B Kelby Tomlinson went 2-for-4 with a grand slam against Chicago Cubs RP James Russell Thursday, Aug. 27.

Fantasy Tip: In addition to being a grand slam, Tomlinson's ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) blast was the first home run of his major league career. He is batting .346 through 20 games this season and is an excellent source of cap relief in FantasyScore.

Giants | Madison Bumgarner wins 16th game

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 18:05:45 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner (16-6) allowed one run on two hits over six innings in a victory over the Chicago Cubs Thursday, Aug. 27, with two walks and 12 strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Bumgarner ($9,600, 19.2% of cap) has won his last five starts and is tied with Cubs SP Jake Arrieta for the most victories in the majors. He will square off against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Zack Greinke in his next start Tuesday, Sept. 1.

Giants | Brandon Crawford remains out

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 11:06:12 -0700

San Francisco Giants SS Brandon Crawford (oblique) is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Aug. 27. SS Ehire Adrianza is starting at shortstop and batting eighth against Chicago Cubs SP Dan Haren Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to remove Crawford ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) from your lineups in all formats. He is optimistic to return sooner than later, so check back for updates. Adrianza ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) owns a .522 OPS this season, and he should be viewed as nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief at FantasyScore.

Giants | Gregor Blanco scratched

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 18:45:45 -0700

The San Francisco Giants scratched OF Gregor Blanco (hip) from the lineup Wednesday, Aug. 26, against the Chicago Cubs due to a strained left hip.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) should be avoided in FantasyScore until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any lingering effects of his injury. Juan Perez ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) replaced him in the lineup.

Giants | Tim Lincecum nearing a return

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 18:44:52 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Tim Lincecum (hip) is expected to be ready to return from the 15-day disabled list Sept. 1, manager Bruce Bochy said Wednesday, Aug. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Lincecum ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) could be used in the rotation, or he might be used out of the bullpen. His status is up in the air. FantasyScore players should ignore him until he can officially return to the rotation and prove his health through a full start without any setbacks.

Giants | Tim Hudson expected back Sept. 1

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 18:43:54 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Tim Hudson (shoulder) is expected back September 1, and it is possible he might return sooner if the team wants to skip SP Matt Cain in the rotation.

Fantasy Tip: Give Hudson ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) a start or two to knock off the rust before trusting him in FantasyScore again.

Giants | Matt Cain might be skipped

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 18:43:19 -0700

The San Francisco Giants might skip SP Matt Cain's next turn in the rotation, and are considering SP Tim Hudson (shoulder) or SP Chris Heston for the assignment.

Fantasy Tip: Cain ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) hasn't been so hot lately, and FantasyScore players will want to avoid him until he gets untracked. He is 0-2 with an 8.03 ERA in five starts in the month of August, serving up seven home runs in 24 2/3 innings.

Giants | Chris Heston might re-join team in L.A.

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 18:42:49 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Chris Heston is not scheduled to make another minor-league start currently. He might return sometime soon, perhaps re-joining the team next week in Los Angeles once rosters expand after Sept. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Heston was sent down to give him a rest, as his innings have been piling up. The team wants to make sure to keep him healthy and not do any long-term damage. It's bad news for FantasyScore players, because he has been a tremendous option at times this season.

Giants | Joe Panik takes pre-game grounders

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 18:42:07 -0700

San Francisco Giants 2B Joe Panik (back) was able to take grounders before the game Wednesday, Aug. 26, and he continues to make progress. He has not had any setbacks, and was able to take swings off a tee Tuesday, Aug. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Panik is still not expected back until the tail end of the team's upcoming road trip, so FantasyScore players be patient. In the meantime, Ehire Adrianza ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) and Kelby Tomlinson ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) continue to hold down the fort at second base.

Giants | One more rehab game for Angel Pagan

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 17:49:39 -0700

Updating a previous report, San Francisco Giants OF Angel Pagan (knee) will play one final minor-league rehab game with Class AAA Sacramento Wednesday, Aug. 26, before he is activated from the 15-day disabled list Thursday, Aug. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Give Pagan ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) at least a game or two to get his rhythm back before trusting him again in FantasyScore.

Giants | A minor injury for Brandon Crawford

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 16:47:46 -0700

Updating a previous report, San Francisco Giants SS Brandon Crawford (oblique) said he has mild left oblique tightness Wednesday, Aug. 26, and hopes to miss just a couple of days.

Fantasy Tip: SS Ehire Adrianza ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) will likely see the majority of playing time in Crawford's ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) absence. Continue to check back for updates on the severity of Crawford's injury and when he projects to return to the lineup. Adrianza holds fleeting value as a desperation flier for NL-only and cavernous mixed leagues.

Giants | Angel Pagan working his way back

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 16:26:32 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Angel Pagan (knee) went 2-for-3 with two runs and two walks for Class AAA Sacramento Tuesday, Aug. 25, and he also played eight innings in center field.

Fantasy Tip: You'll want to give Pagan a game or two to shake off the rust when he returns to the Giants before utilizing him at FantasyScore. The veteran is enduring a rough season, though, so his value is at the lowest it has been for a few seasons. He has just six stolen bases, no home runs and a .258 batting average. You should aim higher in the majority of seasonal leagues.

Giants | Brandon Crawford out of the lineup

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 16:10:26 -0700

San Francisco Giants SS Brandon Crawford (back) is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 26. SS Ehire Adrianza is starting at shortstop and batting eighth against Chicago Cubs SP Kyle Hendricks Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to remove Crawford ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) from your lineups in all formats and check back for updates on the severity of his injury. Adrianza ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is hitting .190 this season, and he should be viewed as nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief at FantasyScore.

Giants | Two youngsters still handling 2B

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 17:39:27 -0700

San Francisco Giants 2B Joe Panik (back) is not expected back until late in the team's upcoming road trip, so SS Ehire Adrianza and 2B Kelby Tomlinson will continue to handle the second base duties until Panik is ready to return.

Fantasy Tip: Adrianza ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) and Tomlinson ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) are nothing special in terms of FantasyScore, but when they start it won't take much to earn their salary. And even if they do nothing, they're nice salary savers so you can load up on options at other more valuable positions.

Giants | Joe Panik's return delayed

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 17:38:48 -0700

San Francisco Giants 2B Joe Panik (back) is back with the team in San Francisco, but manager Bruce Bochy said Tuesday, Aug. 25, that he does not expect Panik to return to game action until late on the team's next road trip.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore players can avoid Panik ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) for a while until he can officially prove his health in a full game and knock off the rust from his layoff. It appears Ehire Adrianza ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) and Kelby Tomlinson ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) will continue to hold down the fort at second base until Panik returns.
