The latest Santiago Casilla MLB and fantasy baseball news
Wed, 15 May 2013 14:37:42 -0700
San Francisco Giants RP Santiago Casilla (knee) threw off a mound Tuesday, May 14, and said he's ready to pitch. He's wearing a knee brace.
Sat, 11 May 2013 16:37:42 -0700
San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy said RP Santiago Casilla (knee) likely will not be available to pitch until Tuesday, May 14.

San Francisco Giants RP Santiago Casilla (knee) is reportedly dealing with a cyst in his knee that he knew about last season, and he "may need a couple of days to let it calm down." There has been no talk of him landing on the disabled list at this point.
Thu, 09 May 2013 11:13:30 -0700
San Francisco Giants RP Santiago Casilla (knee) will undergo an exam Thursday, May 9, to determine the severity of his right knee injury.
Fantasy Tip: Casilla is a very key piece in the Giants' bullpen as the eighth-inning setup man to Sergio Romo. If he has to land on the disabled list, either Javier Lopez or Jeremy Affeldt would likely be trusted with setup duties.

San Francisco Giants RP Santiago Casilla (knee) left his outing early with a right knee ailment Wednesday, May 8.
Wed, 17 Apr 2013 11:08:25 -0700
The San Francisco Giants placed RP Jeremy Affeldt (oblique) on the 15-day disabled list. RP Jean Machi was recalled in his place.
Fantasy Tip: This cements Santiago Casilla, at least for now, as the primary backup to closer Sergio Romo, whom the Giants may rest more in the coming weeks because of his furious early-season workload. Casilla isn't a bad deep-league grab, but his SV contributions will be infrequent without a Romo injury. Casilla's erratic peripherals might not be worth putting into your lineup unless you're in a daily format and the incumbent's workload piles up.

San Francisco Giants RP Santiago Casilla picked up his first save of the season against the Chicago Cubs Saturday, April 13, tossing two scoreless innings while walking one and striking out two. Casilla, who earned 25 saves for San Francisco last season, was filling in for RP Sergio Romo because he had pitched in four of the last five games.

San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy prefers to stay away from using RPs Sergio Romo and Santiago Casilla Wednesday, April 10, but he will check with them before the game to see how they feel.
Fantasy Tip: If neither Romo or Casilla pitch today in a save situation, Javier Lopez is probably your best bet to record a closure. He isn't worth adding for just one day, however, and it's not even certain yet that Romo or Casilla won't receive the save chance if one arises.
Wed, 10 Apr 2013 12:24:25 -0700
San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy said he hopes to rest RPs Sergio Romo and Santiago Casilla Wednesday, April 10, but will ask them if they are able to pitch if needed.
Thu, 21 Mar 2013 17:23:00 -0700
San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy plans to have a sit-down meeting with his bullpen soon. RP Sergio Romo will start the year as the closer, but RPs Jeremy Affeldt, Santiago Casilla and Javier Lopez will all see save chances throughout the year.
Fantasy Tip: It was already known that the Gigantes wanted to limit Romo's innings heading into the 2013 season, and this news confirms that thinking. Romo has excellent command and peripherals but will slip a tad in value if this turns into a quasi committee.
