Giants | Buster Posey out of lineup Saturday

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 11:10:35 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey is not in the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals SP Lance Lynn Saturday, Aug. 29. C Andrew Susac will start behind the plate and bat seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Remove Posey ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) from all daily fantasy lineups. Susac ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is batting just .150 (6-for-40) since July 1, and is not a great FantasyScore option this afternoon.

Giants | Marlon Byrd provides the spark

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 05:58:17 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Marlon Byrd went 1-for-5 with a grand slam during the Giants' 5-4 win over the St. Louis Cardinals Friday, Aug. 28.

Fantasy Tip: While Byrd ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) is just 7-for-28 since joining the Giants, he has three home runs and 10 RBI with a .930 OPS. It is a small sample size, but Byrd remains a solid contributor in the power categories. He has 22 home runs and 52 RBI for the season in just 103 games. It is easy to forget about the veteran, but he can help in deep mixed leagues.

Giants | Tim Lincecum not close to returning

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 18:56:08 -0700

Contrary to a previous report, San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy said SP Tim Lincecum (hip) is "not close" to returning from the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: It is uncertain if Lincecum ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) will rejoin the rotation or head to the bullpen when he is healthy enough to return. If he does return to a starting role, FantasyScore owners should avoid using him in his first game back so that he can prove he is both healthy and effective.

Giants | Brandon Crawford could miss series

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 18:49:05 -0700

Updating a previous report, San Francisco Giants SS Brandon Crawford (oblique) is expected to miss the entire weekend series against the St. Louis Cardinals. "It doesn't surprise me," manager Bruce Bochy said. "I've seen these things linger for three, four weeks. Sometimes it's a week. This was a mild strain. We think he'll be OK after this series."

Fantasy Tip: Expect INF Ehire Adrianza ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) to fill in for Crawford at shortstop, although he provides little else other than salary cap relief in FantasyScore.

Giants | Joe Panik rehab update

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 17:50:51 -0700

San Francisco Giants 2B Joe Panik (back) is scheduled to hit indoors Saturday, Aug. 29, and hit on the field Sunday, Aug. 30. If all goes well, he will begin a minor league rehab assignment Tuesday, Sept. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Panik ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) could return from the disabled list near the conclusion of the team's upcoming road trip, which comes to an end Sept. 9. Kelby Tomlinson ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) and Ehire Adrianza ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) are splitting time at the keystone position for now, with Tomlinson being the far better offensive option.

Giants | Angel Pagan to continue rehab assignment

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 17:13:46 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Angel Pagan (knee) did some running before the game Friday, Aug. 28, but will continue his rehab assignment by playing in three more minor league games for Class AAA Sacramento.

Fantasy Tip: Pagan ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) now appears to be on pace to be activated from the disabled list when rosters are expanded Tuesday, Sept. 1. Give him at least one or two games after he returns to action before considering him for use in FantasyScore.

Giants | Brandon Crawford remains out Friday

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 17:06:39 -0700

San Francisco Giants SS Brandon Crawford (oblique) remains out of the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha Friday, Aug. 28. INF Ehire Adrianza will bat eighth and play shortstop.

Fantasy Tip: Remove Crawford ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) from all fantasy lineups. Adrianza ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is just 1-for-12 over the past week and is hitting .191 during the month of August, so he should be avoided tonight in FantasyScore.

Giants | Gregor Blanco back in lineup

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 17:05:58 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Gregor Blanco (hip) will bat seventh and play center field against St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha Friday, Aug. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is batting .268 during the month of August and is hitting .365 at home this season, making him a productive source of cap relief for FantasyScore owners.

Giants | Matt Cain placed on DL

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 16:52:07 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Matt Cain (elbow) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Friday, Aug. 28, because of nerve irritation in his elbow. The Giants also recalled SP Chris Heston from Class AAA Sacramento. He received a cortisone shot and underwent an MRI a few days ago which came back clean. Cain hopes to be able to pitch after 15 days.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should monitor Cain's ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) recovery over the next few weeks to see if he has a chance to pitch again this season. Heston will be facing the St. Louis Cardinals this weekend and may not be a great option for fantasy owners.

Cardinals | Jason Heyward sitting out vs. Giants

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 15:58:49 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jason Heyward is not in the starting lineup Friday, August 28. OF Brandon Moss draws into the lineup and is batting seventh against San Francisco Giants SP Mike Leake Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Heyward ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) in all fantasy formats Friday. He owns a .318/.392/.482 slash line with 14 runs, eight extra-base hits, 13 RBI and five stolen bases over his past 25 games. He was dealing with a hamstring injury last week, so it might just be an opportune time to rest him. Moss ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) hit his first home run with the Cardinals Thursday, Aug. 27, so perhaps it is the sign of things to come. He is a viable flier at FantasyScore Friday.

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.
