Giants | Jake Peavy to throw Friday

Wed, 06 May 2015 21:39:21 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy (back) is slated to a throw a bullpen session Friday, May 8, and he is then likely to go on a minor-league rehab assignment.

Fantasy Tip: Peavy ($3,800; 7.6% of cap) should be avoided in FantasyScore until he can officially return and prove his health in a start or two without any lingering effects of his injury.

Giants | A Hunter Pence announcement coming soon

Wed, 06 May 2015 13:39:47 -0700

Updating a previous report, San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence's (forearm) swings Tuesday, May 5, impressed manager Bruce Bochy so much that the organization is accelerating the plan to begin his minor league rehab assignment. An announcement concerning Pence's rehab assignment is expected Thursday, May 7. "I thought he was really, really close to normal swings," said Bochy, after watching Pence's session on Tuesday. "He handled velocity off the machine well. He's still going to be stiff when he starts out, but it's loosening up to the point where he's letting it go. He's not hesitating and that's a good sign."

Fantasy Tip: Continue to stash Pence ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) in all seasonal formats and check back for updates concerning his rehab assignment and an updated return timeline. FantasyScore players will want to be patient with Pence initially. He has missed a lot of time and there will likely be an adjustment period to major league pitching.

Giants | Casey McGehee out again

Wed, 06 May 2015 10:53:17 -0700

San Francisco Giants 3B Casey McGehee remains on the bench for the second straight day Wednesday, May 6. 2B Matt Duffy is starting at third base again and hitting eighth in the batting order against San Diego Padres SP Ian Kennedy.

Fantasy Tip: McGehee is hitting only .181 (13-for-72) on the season and could ride pine more frequently if he doesn't turn things around quickly. Duffy ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has very little offensive upside, especially hitting at the bottom of the lineup. Avoid him at FantasyScore.

Giants | Buster Posey resting in day game

Wed, 06 May 2015 10:49:05 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey is taking the day off Wednesday, May 6. C Andrew Susac draws the start behind the dish and is hitting seventh in the batting order against San Diego Padres SP Ian Kennedy.

Fantasy Tip: Susac ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has a home run in 21 at-bats this year, but he profiles as a low-end catching option at FantasyScore on a day with a full slate of games, plus one due to a double header.

Giants | Angel Pagan returns vs. SD

Wed, 06 May 2015 10:46:09 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Angel Pagan (finger) is back in the starting lineup and facing San Diego Padres SP Ian Kennedy Wednesday, May 6. Pagan is hitting third in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Pagan ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is off to a great start this year (.350-0-8) with three stolen bases for the Gigantes. However, he is just 6-for-30 (.200) with one RBI in his career against Kennedy. There isn't a ton of upside for FantasyScore users this afternoon.

Giants | Jake Peavy throws bullpen session

Wed, 06 May 2015 10:03:56 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy (back, hip) threw his first bullpen session Tuesday, May 5, and felt fine

Fantasy Tip: Peavy is inching closer to returning, but he's really a fringe mixed league starter. Stash him if you have space.

Giants | Matt Cain throwing from 90 feet

Wed, 06 May 2015 10:03:15 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Matt Cain (elbow) threw from 90 feet Tuesday, May 5, and could throw off a mound soon.

Fantasy Tip: Cain is still weeks away from returning but is worth stashing on your DL if you have space.

Giants | Hunter Pence nearing rehab assignment

Wed, 06 May 2015 09:01:16 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence (forearm) could begin a minor league rehab assignment within a week. Pence has progressed from hitting off a tee to exhibiting solid contact in batting practice in recent days.

Fantasy Tip: Pence could be a couple weeks away from returning and should be stashed on one of your DL spots.

Giants | Angel Pagan scratched

Tue, 05 May 2015 20:16:02 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Angel Pagan (finger) was scratched from the lineup Tuesday, May 5, against the San Diego Padres due to a laceration on his left middle finger.

Fantasy Tip: Justin Maxwell ($2,100; 4.2% of cap) slid into the lineup in Pagan's place, while Gregor Blanco ($2,000; 4.0% of cap) moved from right to center field.

Giants | Casey McGehee might sit Wednesday

Tue, 05 May 2015 20:15:28 -0700

Updating a previous report, San Francisco Giants 3B Casey McGehee was given off Tuesday, May 5, against the San Diego Padres to rest, and he might get Wednesday, May 6, off, too. Manager Bruce Bochy said McGehee needs to back off to relieve pressure on himself.

Fantasy Tip: McGehee has been struggling, so Bochy plugged Matt Duffy ($1,600; 3.2% of cap) in at third base Tuesday. Duffy could also get a look Wednesday, making him a sound low-end FantasyScore option who can help you save plenty of salary to spread across other positions.

Giants | Matt Duffy starts at hot corner

Tue, 05 May 2015 17:56:32 -0700

San Francisco Giants SS Matt Duffy made the start at third base Tuesday, May 5, against the San Diego Padres in place of the struggling 3B Casey McGehee.

Fantasy Tip: Duffy ($1,600; 3.2% of cap) is a decent low-end FantasyScore option, as it will not take much to live up to salary expectations while helping you save money at other more valuable positions.

Giants | Casey McGehee getting rest

Tue, 05 May 2015 17:55:46 -0700

San Francisco Giants 3B Casey McGehee was held out of the lineup Tuesday, May 5, against the San Diego Padres. He has been struggling, so manager Bruce Bochy gave him a day to "let him catch his breath."

Fantasy Tip: Avoid McGehee ($2,100; 4.2% of cap) in FantasyScore until he starts to hit with more consistency. Matt Duffy ($1,600; 3.2% of cap) made the start at third base and is a decent low-end option while starting.

Giants | Matt Cain close to bullpens

Tue, 05 May 2015 08:58:41 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Matt Cain (forearm) is close to throwing a bullpen session in his recovery from a flexor tendon strain in his right forearm.

Fantasy Tip: Cain ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) could return to the Giants' starting rotation in a week or two. He won't be a popular FantasyScore start, though, at least initially. Cain is two years removed from a 16-win season and 2.79 ERA, and injuries have derailed him the last two years. He'll have to prove he's fully healthy before fantasy owners can trust him again.

Giants | MadBum looks for better results

Mon, 04 May 2015 19:49:26 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner looks for better results against the San Diego Padres Monday, May 4. In his first meeting with the Padres April 11 he was pounded for five runs and 10 hits while lasting just three innings.

Fantasy Tip: Bumgarner ($8,500; 17.0% of cap) pieced it together for FantasyScore owners last time out, and he rarely struggles in back-to-back outings against anyone, so look for a much better stat line Monday.

Giants | Hunter Pence to take BP

Mon, 04 May 2015 16:54:23 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence (arm) will take batting practice the next two days and then rest Wednesday, May 6, then take BP again the next two days, according to manager Bruce Bochy. Pence would then go on a minor league rehab assignment.

Fantasy Tip: Pence ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) could be back with the team later this month to make his season debut. In the meantime, Justin Maxwell ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is likely to continue seeing the majority of starts in right field. He started hot last month but has since come back down to earth. Maxwell is a weaker outfield play at FantasyScore.
