Giants | Brandon Belt to play some outfield?

Fri, 20 Mar 2015 16:27:05 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt is being discussed as an option to play the outfield in the absence of OF Hunter Pence (arm) and OF Angel Pagan (back), according to manager Bruce Bochy. If Belt plays in the outfield, it opens the possibility for C Buster Posey to play more first base. Backup Cs Hector Sanchez and Andrew Susac would get more time with Posey at first. Other outfield options include 1B Travis Ishikawa, OF Juan Perez, OF Justin Maxwell, INF Matt Duffy and 3B Adam Duvall.

Fantasy Tip: Belt is already a middle-round breakout candidate, and adding outfield eligibility would only further enhance his fantasy value.

Giants | Travis Ishikawa unlikely to play OF

Fri, 06 Mar 2015 09:09:37 -0800

San Francisco Giants 1B Travis Ishikawa is unlikely to play the outfield to start the season with OF Hunter Pence (forearm) sidelined. Ishikawa has just three regular season starts in left field, and the Giants have OFs Norichika Aoki, Gregor Blanco, Juan Perez and Justin Maxwell that they can mix and match with.

Fantasy Tip: Aoki is virtually locked into an everyday role in the outfield now with Pence slated to start the year on the disabled list. Blanco probably will benefit the most with regular playing time for the first month of the season or so, but that'll make him the most valuable in NL-only leagues.

Royals | Raul Ibanez signs, Christian Colon called up

Mon, 30 Jun 2014 10:38:18 -0700

The Kansas City Royals signed free-agent OF Raul Ibanez (Angels) to an undisclosed major league deal Monday, June 30, and also recalled 2B Christian Colon from Triple-A Omaha. In corresponding moves, the team designated INF Pedro Ciriaco and OF Justin Maxwell for assignment.

Fantasy Tip: Ibanez figures to be a left-handed option for designated hitter duties and off the bench. Colon will be making his major league debut. He doesn't have much power but makes solid contact; he was hitting close to .300 with Omaha before his call-up. Both players should only be considered in AL-only leagues.

Royals | Norichika Aoki placed on DL

Sat, 21 Jun 2014 08:03:53 -0700

The Kansas City Royals have placed OF Norichika Aoki (groin) on the 15-day disabled list because of a groin injury. The team has also purchased the contract of OF Justin Maxwell from Triple-A Omaha.

Fantasy Tip: With Aoki out, Jarrod Dyson probably will receive most of the time in the outfield until Aoki returns. Dyson could be a decent short-term option for owners in deeper leagues.

Royals | Jarrod Dyson to bereavement list

Fri, 18 Apr 2014 08:39:37 -0700

The Kansas City Royals placed OF Jarrod Dyson on the bereavement list Friday, April 18.

Fantasy Tip: With Lorenzo Cain (hamstring) on the DL, Justin Maxwell will have center field all to himself for at least the next couple of days. Add Maxwell immediately in AL-only leagues for short-term outfield help.
