Giants | Gregor Blanco sitting vs. lefty

Thu, 03 Sep 2015 15:36:18 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Gregor Blanco is not in the lineup against Colorado Rockies left-handed SP Chris Rusin Thursday, Sept. 3. OF Juan Perez is starting in left field and batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Perez ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has a juicy matchup if you're looking to catch lightning in a bottle tonight on FantasyScore. The reserve outfielder is hitting .368 but with just seven hits in 19 at-bats this season.

Giants | Gregor Blanco still out vs. Cubs

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 11:10:40 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Gregor Blanco (hip) is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Aug. 27. OF Juan Perez is starting in center field and batting seventh against Chicago Cubs SP Dan Haren Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has been a sneaky low-end value at FantasyScore and in deep seasonal leagues. Avoid him in all formats until he returns to the lineup. Perez ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has just 13 plate appearances this season, so he is nothing but a dice roll in daily contests Thursday.

Giants | Gregor Blanco out of the lineup

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 15:39:43 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Gregor Blanco is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 19. 2B Kelby Tomlinson is batting leadoff, and OF Juan Perez is starting in center field and batting eighth against St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Blanco ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) in all fantasy formats Wednesday. He has gained fleeting value in cavernous mixed and NL-only formats, as he has leadoff and played center field each of the past five games. Still, he is a low-end option. It isn't out of the question to bump Tomlinson ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) up a notch on your FantasyScore priority list Wednesday. He owns a .333/.357/.519 slash line over 12 games since being recalled to the Giants. Perez ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) owns a .567 OPS over 210 plate appearances for his career, so you'll want to aim higher in daily contests.

Giants | Angel Pagan lands on DL

Tue, 11 Aug 2015 16:09:46 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Angel Pagan (knee) was placed on the disabled list with right patellar tendonitis Tuesday, Aug. 11. OF Juan Perez was called up from the minors in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Pagan is of no use to owners in mixed leagues at this point, especially while being on the DL. Expect Gregor Blanco ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) to see most of the starts in center field in Pagan's absence, and his FantasyScore salary presents a ton of value for daily gamers, especially when he's hitting leadoff, like he probably will the majority of the time.

Giants | Brandon Belt to play some outfield?

Fri, 20 Mar 2015 16:27:05 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt is being discussed as an option to play the outfield in the absence of OF Hunter Pence (arm) and OF Angel Pagan (back), according to manager Bruce Bochy. If Belt plays in the outfield, it opens the possibility for C Buster Posey to play more first base. Backup Cs Hector Sanchez and Andrew Susac would get more time with Posey at first. Other outfield options include 1B Travis Ishikawa, OF Juan Perez, OF Justin Maxwell, INF Matt Duffy and 3B Adam Duvall.

Fantasy Tip: Belt is already a middle-round breakout candidate, and adding outfield eligibility would only further enhance his fantasy value.

Giants | Travis Ishikawa unlikely to play OF

Fri, 06 Mar 2015 09:09:37 -0800

San Francisco Giants 1B Travis Ishikawa is unlikely to play the outfield to start the season with OF Hunter Pence (forearm) sidelined. Ishikawa has just three regular season starts in left field, and the Giants have OFs Norichika Aoki, Gregor Blanco, Juan Perez and Justin Maxwell that they can mix and match with.

Fantasy Tip: Aoki is virtually locked into an everyday role in the outfield now with Pence slated to start the year on the disabled list. Blanco probably will benefit the most with regular playing time for the first month of the season or so, but that'll make him the most valuable in NL-only leagues.

Giants | Norichika Aoki favorite for LF

Tue, 17 Feb 2015 15:09:13 -0800

San Francisco Giants OF Norichika Aoki is the favorite to be the team's starting left fielder on opening day, but he'll be battling OFs Gregor Blanco, Travis Ishikawa and Juan Perez this spring. Aoki has just 144 strikeouts in the last three seasons combined. Blanco and Perez are probably slightly better defensive options than Aoki, though.

Fantasy Tip: As the favorite to start in left field, Aoki will have late mixed-round value in 12-team fantasy baseball leagues. His power has declined slightly in recent years, so you'll be getting a scrappy player that is mainly useful as a stolen-base and on-base percentage asset.
