San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner is gave up four runs in 6 1/3 innings against the Arizona Diamondbacks Sunday, July 13, and he's now 1-3 with a 7.03 ERA in his last four starts. Opponents were hitting just .224 against his slider prior to his four-game slide, and they have a .488 average against his signature pitch in his last four starts.
Fantasy Tip: Bumgarner is much better than his last four starts suggest. The break might be the perfect time for him to regroup for the second half.

St. Louis Cardinals OF Randal Grichuk is hitting second Friday, May 30, against San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner. 1B Matt Adams is sitting, and Allen Craig is taking his spot.
Fantasy Tip: Grichuk may be a temporary fixture against southpaws; St. Louis needs to jump-start this lineup somehow, and they'll have DH at-bats coming up in the next few weeks. He's a deep-mixed asset to which you can give a trial add. Oscar Taveras doesn't have an everyday spot yet, which, along with the Super Two status, may delay his arrival.
