Giants | Not encouraged by Marco Scutaro

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 10:35:09 -0700

San Francisco Giants 2B Marco Scutaro hasn't encouraged the club or scouts with his play. He wasn't in the lineup Thursday, July 24, even though they're facing a left-hander. Observers says his lack of mobility and bat speed is holding him back. Ehire Adrianza continues to receive playing time in place of Scutaro.

Rangers | Neftali Feliz's velocity down

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 10:00:05 -0700

Texas Rangers RP Neftali Feliz's average fastball velocity is down from 96.3 mph, during his 2010 and 2011 stints as closer, to 92.2 this season. His heat has been inconsistent from outing to outing, as well. Feliz said he's aware of the drop-off but is focusing more on making sure he stays in the lower part of the strike zone. He said that the change in his role could cause him to throw harder, too, because "Obviously, there is more energy and adrenaline. You have to do your job with a sense of urgency."

FANTASY TIP: Saves-desperate fantasy owners should grab him with the hope he'll improve, whether it be via the intangible factor of closing or simply more time on the mound since his 2012 surgery.
