San Francisco Giants RP Heath Hembree is in the discussion for a September call-up. He has 14 saves and 23 strikeouts to only five walks in his last 19 outings with Triple-A Fresno.
Fantasy Tip: Hembree won't be in live for any save chances with the Giants, however. He won't be fantasy-relevant.

San Francisco Giants RP Heath Hembree isn't yet an option for a promotion because the organization doesn't want to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for him until there's confidence that he'll remain in a late-inning relief role. It's also possible that the Giants will use Hembree as trade bait prior to the July 31 non-waiver deadline. They may fear that if he's called up and struggles, his value will be damaged.
Fantasy Tip: Kind of a fearful way of doing business, but don't have an extreme need yet. Hembree has a shot to be the club's closer down the road, if enough breaks in his favor.
