Giants | Hunter Pence still resting

Wed, 25 May 2016 10:29:39 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence (hamstring) remains out of the starting lineup Wednesday, May 25. OF Gregor Blanco is starting in right field again and is batting seventh against San Diego Padres SP James Shields.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco doesn't have much power and is limited fantasy-wise hitting lower in the order, but he does have a .353 career average with four RBI in 19 career plate appearances against Shields. Consider Blanco a low-end sleeper pick in DFS.

Giants | Hunter Pence being cautious

Tue, 24 May 2016 16:22:00 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence (hamstring) isn't hitting at all Tuesday, May 24, and he plans to let his hamstring heal. Pence thinks he can return to the lineup Friday, May 27, but he won't say for sure.

Fantasy Tip: Pence had a pinch-hit appearance in the ninth inning Monday night and had the game-winning hit, so his injury isn't too serious. But he and the Giants don't want to make it worse, so he might be out until Friday. Plan accordingly. In the meantime, Jarrett Parker and Gregor Blanco should see starts in the outfield with Angel Pagan on the DL. Both players can return decent value in daily games, with Parker having more of a power stroke. Blanco becomes and option for depth in deep mixed and NL-only leagues with Pagan hurt.

Giants | Hunter Pence still out

Tue, 24 May 2016 15:46:12 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence (hamstring) remains out of the starting lineup Tuesday, May 24. OF Gregor Blanco is starting in right field and is hitting eighth against San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco is hitting only .221 on the season but is an underrated player against right-handed pitchers. His lineup spot is a tough one for daily considerations, but he could still return decent value as a sleeper against a struggling pitcher coming off an injury. Blanco's fantasy value in seasonal leagues sees a boost in the short term with Angel Pagan landing on the DL Tuesday.

Giants | Hunter Pence has minor strain

Mon, 23 May 2016 16:06:28 -0700

Updating a previous report, San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence's (hamstring) MRI exam showed a mild strain of his hamstring. He will hit on the field Monday, May 23, and the team isn't ruling out getting him into the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: The initial lineup has Gregor Blanco replacing Pence Monday night. Pence has missed the last three games and isn't worth the risk if he actually makes it into the starting lineup. He should return tomorrow if he's out tonight, though, and he needs to be immediately returned to all starting lineups.

Giants | Hunter Pence missing another game

Mon, 23 May 2016 15:21:34 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence (hamstring) is out for his third straight game with a hamstring strain Monday, May 23. OF Gregor Blanco is starting in right field and batting eighth against San Diego Padres SP Drew Pomeranz. Also, OF Angel Pagan moves up to fifth in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Pence is day-to-day and could return to the lineup tomorrow. Get him back in all lineups when he's ready. Be hesitant when considering Blanco or Pagan for daily lineups tonight against the left-hander Pomeranz. Lefties are hitting only .180 with one home run on the season against him.

Fantasy Tip: Pence is having a solid offensive season, and he should be reinserted into lineups as soon as his return is confirmed.

Giants | Hunter Pence out Sunday

Sun, 22 May 2016 14:34:00 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence (hamstring) is out Sunday, May 22, against the Chicago Cubs due to hamstring issues. OF Gregor Blanco will bat seventh and play right field against Cubs SP Kyle Hendricks.

Fantasy Tip: It appears the hamstring is sore and shouldn't be a major issue moving forward, although Pence has had his share of health issues in the past that have dulled his fantasy value. For now, sit Pence in daily leagues and stay tuned to see if it will affect his value next week. Blanco is 13-for-56 (.252) with only seven RBIs and carries little fantasy value.

Giants | Two Giants hamstrung

Sat, 21 May 2016 14:57:12 -0700

Updating an earlier report, San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence (hamstring) and OF Angel Pagan (hamstring) are out Saturday, May 21, due to sore hamstrings. Both are available to pinch hit and hope to return Sunday, May 22.

Fantasy Tip: It was strange to see Pence out against a lefty, and this explains why. Avoid him in DFS today, but he'll be an upper-middle option if he's ready Sunday. Pagan is a low-end option when he's ready.

Giants | Three Giants out Saturday

Sat, 21 May 2016 13:28:27 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence, 1B Brandon Belt and OF Angel Pagan are out of the lineup Saturday, May 21. 2B Kelby Tomlinson is hitting third, C Trevor Brown is hitting sixth and OF Gregor Blanco hits eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Tomlinson is hitting .483 in limited time this month, and he has upside hitting ahead of Buster Posey. He's a low-end consideration against Jon Lester. Brown has four homers in 47 at-bats, but only one of them has come this month. He's a fringe streamer today. Blanco is hitting .316 against lefties, and he's a low-end consideration today.

Giants | Hunter Pence likes tonight's matchup

Wed, 18 May 2016 15:51:28 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence is hitting .273 with three home runs and six RBI in 11 at-bats in the last five years against San Diego Padres SP Drew Pomeranz, who he faces Wednesday, May 18.

Fantasy Tip: Pence is an everyday player in traditional leagues. He only has 11 hits in 46 at-bats against left-handers this season (.239 average), but he also has three of his six home runs against them. He could be an under-the-radar daily pick tonight against Pomeranz, who has been mowing down opponents.
