Giants | Brandon Crawford returns vs. Rockies

Fri, 04 Sep 2015 15:04:23 -0700

San Francisco Giants SS Brandon Crawford (calf) is starting at shortstop and batting sixth against Colorado Rockies SP Jorge De La Rosa Friday, Sept. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Crawford ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) missed the past three games with the injury, but he should be on your FantasyScore radar Friday with the game being played at hitter-friendly Coors Field. He is far from a must-start bat, though, as Crawford doesn't own the handedness advantage and has only played one game since Tuesday, Aug. 25.

Giants | Brandon Crawford out of lineup

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 17:55:57 -0700

San Francisco Giants SS Brandon Crawford (calf) was back out of the lineup Tuesday, Sept. 1, against the Los Angeles Dodgers due to a bruised calf.

Fantasy Tip: Crawford ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) was hit by pitch Monday. Normally we have these type of nagging injuries in the summer, and guys will try to play through. But once rosters expand, there is a lot more flexibility for teams, and they can rest a guy with a minor ailment more easily than when rosters are limited to 25.

Giants | Brandon Crawford back in the lineup

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 15:57:22 -0700

San Francisco Giants SS Brandon Crawford (oblique) is in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Brett Anderson Monday, Aug. 31, and is batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Crawford ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) has missed a handful of games because of the injury but has returned to the lineup. He is hitting .253 with three home runs and 11 RBI this month and could be a solid starting option if he is healthy.

Fantasy Tip: As with any injured player, Crawford ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) should be watched carefully or even skipped in FantasyScore until he works out the kinks in his swing.

Giants | Brandon Crawford could miss series

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 18:49:05 -0700

Updating a previous report, San Francisco Giants SS Brandon Crawford (oblique) is expected to miss the entire weekend series against the St. Louis Cardinals. "It doesn't surprise me," manager Bruce Bochy said. "I've seen these things linger for three, four weeks. Sometimes it's a week. This was a mild strain. We think he'll be OK after this series."

Fantasy Tip: Expect INF Ehire Adrianza ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) to fill in for Crawford at shortstop, although he provides little else other than salary cap relief in FantasyScore.

Giants | Brandon Crawford remains out Friday

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 17:06:39 -0700

San Francisco Giants SS Brandon Crawford (oblique) remains out of the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha Friday, Aug. 28. INF Ehire Adrianza will bat eighth and play shortstop.

Fantasy Tip: Remove Crawford ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) from all fantasy lineups. Adrianza ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is just 1-for-12 over the past week and is hitting .191 during the month of August, so he should be avoided tonight in FantasyScore.

Giants | Brandon Crawford remains out

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 11:06:12 -0700

San Francisco Giants SS Brandon Crawford (oblique) is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Aug. 27. SS Ehire Adrianza is starting at shortstop and batting eighth against Chicago Cubs SP Dan Haren Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to remove Crawford ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) from your lineups in all formats. He is optimistic to return sooner than later, so check back for updates. Adrianza ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) owns a .522 OPS this season, and he should be viewed as nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief at FantasyScore.

Giants | A minor injury for Brandon Crawford

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 16:47:46 -0700

Updating a previous report, San Francisco Giants SS Brandon Crawford (oblique) said he has mild left oblique tightness Wednesday, Aug. 26, and hopes to miss just a couple of days.

Fantasy Tip: SS Ehire Adrianza ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) will likely see the majority of playing time in Crawford's ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) absence. Continue to check back for updates on the severity of Crawford's injury and when he projects to return to the lineup. Adrianza holds fleeting value as a desperation flier for NL-only and cavernous mixed leagues.
