San Francisco Giants SP Yusmeiro Petit might get the start Thursday, April 23, against the Los Angeles Dodgers in place of the injured SP Jake Peavy (back). There has been no official word from manager Bruce Bochy on who the fill-in will be.
Fantasy Tip: Even if Petit gets the nod he is not a recommended fantasy play against a solid Los Angeles lineup top to bottom.

Updating a previous report, San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy (back) was placed on the 15-day disabled list because of a lower back strain. He had been scheduled to make his next start against the Los Angeles Dodgers Thursday, April 23. Manager Bruce Bochy is uncertain how his spot in the rotation will be filled but the club could turn to Ryan Vogelsong or Yusmeiro Petit for a spot start or promote a starter from the minors. Bochy also mentioned the team could use a four-man rotation for the next week but it would require some of their starters to pitch on short rest.
Fantasy Tip: It is still uncertain how much time Peavy is expected to miss. Both Vogelsong ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) and Petit have struggled this season and neither pitcher would make a viable FantasyScore option Thursday.
