Giants | Matt Cain to DL

Mon, 21 Jul 2014 09:04:08 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Matt Cain (elbow) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with right elbow inflammation. 1B Brandon Belt (concussion) was placed on the 7-day disabled list. 3B Adam Duvall and RP George Kontos were recalled from Triple-A Fresno. 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.

Giants | Brandon Belt headed to DL

Sun, 20 Jul 2014 13:34:00 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt (concussion) is headed to the disabled list with a concussion, but it's unknown if it will be the 7-day DL or the 15-day DL. Tests confirmed he has a concussion. 3B Adam Duvall is expected to come up in his place.

Fantasy Tip: Belt could miss a couple weeks or more depending on the severity of the concussion. Tyler Colvin is the benefactor as he'll likely see more time in the outfield and at first with Michael Morse. Colvin and Duvall have NL-only value as roster depth.

Giants | Brandon Belt not quite ready

Wed, 02 Jul 2014 11:35:47 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt (thumb) went 1-for-4 with a double and two strikeouts in a rehab game with Triple-A Fresno Tuesday, July 1, and he's now 11-for-21 (.523) with three home runs on his rehab assignment. However, manager Bruce Bochy said Belt is feeling some pain in his thumb, and the team wants him to have more at-bats in the minors before activating him from the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Belt is pretty darn close to returning. If he doesn't have any more soreness in his thumb after a few more rehab games, he could be back with the team as early as Friday evening.
