San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey (foot) was hit on the outside of his left foot by a bunted foul ball in the fifth inning Sunday, June 26, against the Philadelphia Phillies. Posey was checked by head athletic trainer Dave Groeschner but remained in the game.
Fantasy Tip: Keep an eye on Posey in the next couple contests. This should not be a factor but sometimes it takes a bit for complications to arise. However, it's a pretty safe bet this isn't a serious problem.

Fantasy Tip: Cain's fantasy value is down this season due to a subpar performance, and expectations are that would continue. Hold off on utilizing Cain unless he turns a corner.

San Francisco Giants SP Johnny Cueto gave up a season-high six runs in six-plus innings Sunday, June 26, but did not get a decision as the Giants came back for an 8-7 win over the Philadelphia Phillies.
Fantasy Tip: Cueto owners have had no reason to panic so far, and they are not about to start now. Chalk this up to a bad outing and continue to start Cueto in all formats.

Fantasy Tip: Obviously you don't get points for victories by a manager in fantasy circles, but Bochy's firm hand has helped several Giants produce like Madison Bumgarner and Santiago Casilla, among others. This is a big milestone for the team and for Bochy.

Fantasy Tip: Gillaspie finished the game with two hits and raised his batting average to .219. That alone should tell you not to play Gillaspie in any regular format, as that batting average is just too low. He may be worth an occasional DFS turn, but it depends on the matchup vs. the pitcher.

San Francisco Giants OF Angel Pagan recorded a season-high four hits against the Philadelphia Phillies Sunday, June 26, finishing with two doubles, two RBI and three runs scored, and he has hit safely in eight straight games.
Fantasy Tip: He is a solid option in NL-only leagues and could be a useful DFS option while he is streaking at the plate.

Fantasy Tip: It doesn't sound like anything serious, but check out Posey's status over the next day or two to make sure he doesn't receive a day off.

San Francisco Giants OF Gregor Blanco is not in the starting lineup against Philadelphia Phillies SP Aaron Nola Sunday, June 26. OF Jarrett Parker will start in right field and is batting sixth in the lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Parker has at least one hit in six of his last eight games and is hitting .302 in June. He is not the best option available but should be considered by some daily fantasy league owners.

Fantasy Tip: Pena is hitting .381 with four RBI since being recalled from the minor leagues earlier in the month. He should be considered a starting option by desperate owners in daily fantasy leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Bumgarner slipped to 8-4 while his ERA inched up from 1.85 to 1.99. He has 13 straight quality starts and remains a must-start in all fantasy formats and DFS regardless of price tag.
Sat, 25 Jun 2016 11:37:52 -0700
Fantasy Tip: The 34-year-old Pagan is batting .282 with three home runs, 22 RBI and seven steals through 44 games and would only command a short-term contract offer because of his age and injury history. However, the Giants' pursuit of Pagan could end if the club acquires an outfielder or two before this year's trade deadline.

Fantasy Tip: Cain probably will be able to return to the starting rotation after the All-Star break and should make at least one rehab start. He has struggled this season and should not be a great fantasy option once he is activated from the disabled list.
Fri, 24 Jun 2016 23:56:35 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Since being activated from the disabled list, Pagan is 11-for-36 (.306) with a home run, nine RBI, six runs scored and a pair of steals. He's not a dynamic offensive option in any one area, but he can fill a starting slot in deeper mixed setups.
Fri, 24 Jun 2016 23:48:23 -0700
Fantasy Tip: After a middling month of May (.280-2-8), Belt has been a steady producer in June, hitting safely in 17 of his 19 starts and going for 25-for-73 (.343) with five home runs and 13 RBI. Belt is a solid option in all leagues.
Fri, 24 Jun 2016 23:36:43 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Outside of a mini-hiccup against the Cardinals on June 5, Peavy has been in a real groove of late with five quality starts in his last six outings to drop his ERA from an unsightly 8.21 all the way down to 5.22. He's worth owning in deeper mixed leagues now and is becoming a possible addition even in standard setups.
