Giants | Nori Aoki sitting Saturday

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 15:19:36 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Nori Aoki is sitting out Saturday, Aug. 1, against the Texas Rangers. OF Justin Maxwell will start in left field and hit sixth in the lineup against LHP Cole Hamels.

Fantasy Tip: Maxwell ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is hitting a meager .212 against southpaws this season, and he should be avoided for FantasyScore contests.

Giants | Justin Maxwell in left field Sunday

Sun, 19 Jul 2015 11:51:46 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Justin Maxwell will start in left field and bat seventh against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Patrick Corbin Sunday, July 19. 1B/OF Brandon Belt, who played left field Saturday, July 18, will bat eighth and play first base Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Maxwell ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is batting .215 with six home runs and 23 RBIs through 73 games and he is hitless in three lifetime at-bats against Corbin. You can find better outfield options in FantasyScore for a similar price. Belt ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) is only hitting .155 against lefties this year, although he is 3-for-12 against Corbin in his career with a double and an RBI.

Giants | Gregor Blanco out vs. lefty

Fri, 17 Jul 2015 16:34:28 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Gregor Blanco is not in the lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks left-handed SP Robbie Ray Friday, July 17. OF Justin Maxwell is starting in left field and hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Maxwell ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) continues to be a very weak outfield option on FantasyScore. That trend continues tonight against the lefty Ray, as Maxwell has hit just .220 (13-for-59) with none of his six home runs against southpaws in 2015.

Giants | Justin Maxwell goes off Friday

Sat, 11 Jul 2015 05:17:32 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Justin Maxwell went 4-for-4 with three runs, two RBI and was a home run shy of hitting for the cycle during the Giants' 15-2 win over the Philadelphia Phillies Friday, July 10.

Fantasy Tip: Maxwell ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has flashed upside at various points this season, and throughout his career, but he is too inconsistent at the dish to trust in seasonal formats outside cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues. FantasyScore players shouldn't view him as anything more than a desperation flier, either.

Giants | Gregor Blanco resting Friday

Fri, 10 Jul 2015 16:30:45 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Gregor Blanco is not in the lineup against Philadelphia Phillies left-handed SP Cole Hamels Friday, July 10. OF Justin Maxwell is starting in left field and hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Maxwell ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has been pretty bad offensively all year, not to mention a .207/.258/.293 slash line with none of his six home runs against lefties in 2015. Avoid Maxwell on FantasyScore against Hamels this evening.

Giants | Angel Pagan not playing

Wed, 08 Jul 2015 10:50:12 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Angel Pagan is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 8. OF Justin Maxwell is starting in left field and hitting eighth against New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom.

Fantasy Tip: Maxwell ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is a low-end outfield option for daily gamers. He's hitting only .205 (39-for-190) with six home runs and 21 RBI this year. He has a very poor matchup against the dominant deGrom.

Giants | Justin Maxwell out of Sunday lineup

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 14:12:33 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Justin Maxwell is not starting Sunday, July 5, against the Washington Nationals. OF Gregor Blanco is playing instead.

Fantasy Tip: Maxwell ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) looks like he's getting a regular night off because of Blanco's hot bat. Blanco ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has a .444 average and a .333 mark against right-handed pitchers, and the Nationals have Jordan Zimmermann going Sunday. Give Blanco a try in FantasyScore.

Giants | Nori Aoki scratched late

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 18:19:36 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Nori Aoki (undisclosed) was scratched from the lineup Tuesday, June 23, in advance of the game against the San Diego Padres. Aoki had missed time with a leg injury, but it's unclear if that's the cause of Tuesday's problem. OF Gregor Blanco will start in left field and lead off, OF Justin Maxwell will play right field and bat eighth against RHP Odrisamer Despaigne.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) will be a strong option due to his .345 on-base percentage, and his .299 batting average against right-handed pitchers. Maxwell ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) hits just .222 against righties, and he should be avoided.

Giants | Nori Aoki out Sunday

Sun, 21 Jun 2015 14:22:48 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Nori Aoki (ankle) is not in the starting lineup Sunday, June 21. OF Justin Maxwell is in the lineup and batting sixth. Aoki's injury also has moved 1B Brandon Belt to left field and C Buster Posey to first base. C Andrew Susac is catching.

Fantasy Tip: Aoki ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) should be removed from your lineup until his ankle has healed. Maxwell ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) hit a two-run homer Saturday so he has demonstrated some pop and could make a cheaper replacement for your lineup.

Giants | Justin Maxwell batting ninth

Wed, 17 Jun 2015 15:36:05 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Justin Maxwell is batting ninth and playing right field against Seattle Mariners SP Felix Hernandez Wednesday, June 17.

Fantasy Tip: Maxwell ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is riding a 6-for-40 run dating back to mid-May with a .490 OPS. Facing Hernandez isn't exactly an ideal matchup, either. Maxwell is a low-end option in NL-only formats, but he can be avoided without fear in all other leagues.
