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.

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.

San Francisco Giants 1B/3B Adam Duvall will start his first game in the majors at first base, Thursday, June 26, due to an illness keeping 1B/OF Michael Morse out of the lineup. Duvall will bat sixth.

Updating a previous report, San Francisco Giants 1B/3B Adam Duvall will be used off the bench but may get a start or two at first base, per manager Bruce Bochy, who said Duvall has "easy power."
Fantasy Tip: His NL-only utility, at least for the next week or two, just went up a tick. Power-hungry fantasy players in those games are more justified to take a stab after these comments.

The San Francisco Giants placed OF Angel Pagan (back) on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday, June 25, and recalled 3B Adam Duvall from Triple-A Fresno.
Fantasy Tip: This will give Tyler Colvin more playing time. He may creep into short-term deep-mixed utility, but don't count on it. Duvall clubbed 23 homers at Fresno but will struggle to find playing time barring an injury.

San Francisco Giants 3B Adam Duvall (thumb) had a home run in the Cactus League spring game against the Oakland Athletics Wednesday, Feb. 26. He suffered a torn thumb ligament last season, and played winter ball in Venezuela to get an additional 130 at-bats. He has high hopes for making the team, but likely is a long shot. "I just want to come in here and make an impact," Duvall said.
