Giants | Heath Hembree not yet an option

San Francisco Giants RP Heath Hembree isn't yet an option for a promotion because the organization doesn't want to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for him until there's confidence that he'll remain in a late-inning relief role. It's also possible that the Giants will use Hembree as trade bait prior to the July 31 non-waiver deadline. They may fear that if he's called up and struggles, his value will be damaged.

Fantasy Tip: Kind of a fearful way of doing business, but don't have an extreme need yet. Hembree has a shot to be the club's closer down the road, if enough breaks in his favor.
