Giants | Andres Torres to DL

Thu, 22 Aug 2013 15:24:33 -0700

The San Francisco Giants placed OF Andres Torres (Achilles') on the 15-day disabled list with a left Achilles' strain Thursday, Aug. 22, and recalled INF Nick Noonan and OF Francisco Peguero from Triple-A Fresno in corresponding moves. Also, RP Mike Kickham was optioned to Fresno.

Fantasy Tip: Gregor Blanco should now move into an everyday role in center field with Torres sidelined. However, with Angel Pagan (hamstring) nearing a return, that'll probably be short-lived.

Giants | Mike Kickham optioned

Wed, 10 Jul 2013 16:34:48 -0700

The San Francisco Giants optioned Mike Kickham to Triple-A Fresno Wednesday, July 10, after he was forced to throw 94 pitches following Matt Cain's early exit from the game.

Fantasy Tip: If rumors of a Cain injury wind up true, he could be in the running to fill in for the right-hander. Keep an eye on this situation for NL-only innings.

Giants | Chad Gaudin to re-enter rotation

Tue, 02 Jul 2013 13:59:03 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Chad Gaudin (elbow) will re-enter the rotation when he returns from the disabled list Saturday, July 6, allowing SP Michael Kickham to stay in a long-relief role.

Fantasy Tip: Gaudin is a desperation addition to any mixed league roster, unless he's a spot-start addition with a very nice matchup.

Giants | Chad Gaudin to DL

Tue, 25 Jun 2013 09:45:12 -0700

The San Francisco Giants placed SP Chad Gaudin (elbow) on the 15-day disabled list with a bruised elbow Monday, June 24, and recalled SP Michael Kickham from Triple-A Fresno in a corresponding move. Kickham will make his second major league start Tuesday, June 25, in place of Gaudin.

Fantasy Tip: Kickham is worth a small investment in NL-only leagues if he holds down the rotation spot with Gaudin on the disabled list.

Giants | Ramon Ramirez recalled

Wed, 29 May 2013 14:11:50 -0700

The San Francisco Giants recalled RP Ramon Ramirez from Triple-A Fresno Wednesday, May 29, and optioned SP Michael Kickham to Fresno in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Chad Gaudin and Shane Loux are the favorites to join the rotation and start Sunday. Loux might have the advantage since he's been starting in the minors and is coming off a solid outing for Fresno. Both options don't have much upside and thus aren't intriguing fantasy pick-ups.
