Giants | George Kontos headed to DL

Tue, 19 Apr 2016 07:25:55 -0700

San Francisco Giants RP George Kontos (elbow) is headed to the 15-day disabled list with a flexor strain in his elbow.

Fantasy Tip: The Giants' pen has some issues with Sergio Romo (elbow) also out. Santiago Casilla blew his first save last night, and injuries could pave the way for Hunter Strickland, whom saves speculators love. Monitor this situation, and handcuff Casilla with Strickland.

The team announced P Yusmeiro Petit will start in place of Cain Tuesday, July 22.

Fantasy Tip: Petit has some NL-only value as he pitched well in his spot starts recently. Cain could only miss a couple of weeks if tests have revealed only inflammation.
