Fantasy Tip: Pagan ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) doesn't have a lot of upside with knee woes on top of a meager .269-0-19 line this season. Avoid him on FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Posey ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) has been an RBI machine lately, driving in 16 over his last nine games. If you want to pay up for an elite catcher at FantasyScore, Posey is the player to invest in.

San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy (back) took the loss in his first start since being activated from the disabled list, allowing two runs on three hits and striking out in 6 1/3 innings against the Washington Nationals Friday, July 3.
Fantasy Tip: Peavy ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) had struggled in his first two starts of the year before landing on the DL, but he turned in his best performance of the year Friday. He was actually solid with the Giants at the end of last season, but with his best years well behind him, Peavy is likely to be inconsistent from one start to the next and a risky option at FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Sergei Romo projects to receive the majority of save opportunities while Casilla is recovering from arm fatigue. Although, Javier Lopez is also in the equation. Saves chasers will want to target Romo first, as he has more fleeting value. Continue to check back for updates on Casilla.

Fantasy Tip: Susac ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is hitting fifth against lefty Gio Gonzalez. Susac is hitting .344 in 32 at-bats against lefties this season. He's a prime bargain play on FantasyScore today.

Fantasy Tip: Peavy ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) faces a talented Washington Nationals lineup and doesn't have a lot of upside on FantasyScore. Hudson isn't worth stashing except maybe in NL-only leagues if you have the space.

Fantasy Tip: Posey ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) showed no ill effects from taking a ball off his mask Wednesday. Posey is the class of the catcher position, but FantasyScore owners need to pick the right matchups before investing at such a high price.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) hadn't hit a home run since May 16, but he's been able to contribute via a high batting average and scoring runs. Blanco can be considered whenever he starts against a right-handed pitcher.

San Francisco Giants SP Matt Cain (elbow) made his first start of the season Thursday, July 2, against the Miami Marlins and struggled a bit, going five innings and surrendering five runs on seven hits, including two home runs, while striking out two and walking four.
Fantasy Tip: Overall, it wasn’t a good return to the mound for Cain ($4,300, 8.6% of cap), though he was pitching just fine until a troubling fifth inning when the Marlins tagged him for four of their five runs on the day. Despite the off outing, Cain is absolutely still worth a speculative add at the very least, and he still could be a solid option on FantasyScore based on the matchups, especially when he’s working from home in pitcher-friendly San Francisco. The 30-year-old amassed an impressive 55 wins over a four-year stretch from 2009-2012 and can still be useful for fantasy rotations if he remains healthy.

Fantasy Tip: Lincecum probably won't have a rotation spot to return to, barring another injury. He can be dumped in most formats. Matt Cain ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) takes his spot, but he's a watch list guy right now.
Thu, 02 Jul 2015 09:04:01 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Susac ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is an intriguing sleeper catcher option on FantasyScore some of the time, especially since he receives semi-regular playing time with Posey moving to first often. However, he's one to avoid against former National League Rookie of the Year Fernandez, even though it's his first start in over a year due to injury.
Thu, 02 Jul 2015 08:33:34 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Blanco ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is having a nice season with a .314-1-15 clip, but he draws Jose Fernandez in his season debut. The upside isn't there, but the price and spot in the lineup is right if you need a low-priced outfield option on FantasyScore.
Thu, 02 Jul 2015 08:23:06 -0700
San Francisco Giants RP Santiago Casilla (arm) will be given a few days off due to arm fatigue, according to manager Bruce Bochy. RPs Sergio Romo and Javier Lopez will close out games based on matchups.
Fantasy Tip: Romo is the righty, has the experience and will probably see the bulk of the opportunities with Casilla out. He's likely gone in NL-only leagues, but if you're fetching for saves in mixed leagues, grab him.
Thu, 02 Jul 2015 07:45:23 -0700
Fantasy Tip: The Fish are without Giancarlo Stanton, but Cain ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) isn't the same pitcher he once was. Give him a start or two before using him on FantasyScore.
Thu, 02 Jul 2015 07:44:53 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Posey ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) is 11-for-22 with a homer and nine RBI the last seven days, but he faces off against Jose Fernandez. The matchup isn't the greatest, but it is Fernandez's first start since Tommy John surgery. Posey is a solid option on FantasyScore.
