Giants | Gregor Blanco receives day off

Mon, 30 May 2016 08:16:23 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Gregor Blanco is not in the starting lineup against Atlanta Braves SP Mike Foltynewicz Monday, May 30. OF Jarrett Parker will start in left field and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Parker has recorded four hits in his last five games and has one RBI during that span. Parker could be a sleeper option in some daily fantasy leagues, but owners should be able to find better options to use.

Giants | Denard Span has hip injury

Sat, 28 May 2016 12:01:02 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Denard Span (hip) has been scratched from the starting lineup against the Colorado Rockies Saturday, May 28, because of a bruised right hip. OF Gregor Blanco will bat leadoff and play center field in his place, with OF Jarrett Parker batting seventh and playing left field.

Fantasy Tip: Span is experiencing some residual soreness after crashing into the outfield wall earlier this week but the injury is considered minor. Blanco is 3-for-8 with a pair of doubles in his career versus Rockies SP Eddie Butler, so DFS players may want to consider taking a flier on him this afternoon. Parker is just 3-for-14 this season and is nothing more than a source of desperation cap relief.

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 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 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.

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 | 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 | Angel Pagan still out

Thu, 12 May 2016 15:42:11 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Angel Pagan (hamstring) is not in the lineup Thursday, May 12. OF Gregor Blanco is in his place in left field and batting eighth opposite Arizona Diamondbacks SP Zack Greinke.

Fantasy Tip: Considering he hasn't played since May 1, it's a little baffling that Pagan hasn't been placed on the disabled list. Perhaps this indicates he's very close to returning, but his status for the next few days is still up in the air. Blanco is a fine fill-in player, but has been far from impressive since taking over for Pagan. In fact, he's just 6-for-37 (.162) at the plate this month.

Giants | Brandon Belt, Angel Pagan sit out

Wed, 11 May 2016 10:59:15 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt and OF Angel Pagan (hamstring) are out of the lineup Wednesday, May 11. 1B Conor Gillaspie is hitting seventh, and OF Gregor Blanco is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Neither Gillaspie nor Blanco are anything to write home about, or write into your lineups, against Marcus Stroman.

Giants | Denard Span not starting

Sun, 08 May 2016 12:21:04 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Denard Span is not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Eddie Butler Sunday, May 8. OF Gregor Blanco will start in center field, while OF Mac Williamson will start in left field and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Williamson has recorded three hits and one RBI over the last three games but has not received a lot of playing time this season. Williamson may not be the best option for owners to consider.
