From -- thru  --


Giants | Joe Panik out Wednesday

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 15:52:47 -0700

San Francisco Giants 2B Joe Panik is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 22. 2B Matt Duffy is starting at second base and hitting second in the batting order against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw.

Fantasy Tip: Duffy ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) hit well in a small sample size against lefties in 2014, going 12-for-30 (.400) with three RBI, but that doesn't mean you should look to him at FantasyScore against Kershaw. Go elsewhere for your second base option.

Giants | Casey McGehee out Thursday

Thu, 16 Apr 2015 15:45:25 -0700

San Francisco Giants 3B Casey McGehee (knee) remains out of the starting lineup against the Arizona Diamondbacks Thursday, April 16. 2B Matt Duffy will start at third base again and hit second in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Duffy ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) isn't the greatest of second base options for those playing on FantasyScore, but his placement near the top of the San Fran lineup gives him at least a little upside. Duffy hit his first homer of the season Wednesday night. Against Diamondbacks starter Archie Bradley, though, Duffy figures to be a weak play.

Giants | Casey McGehee remains out

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 15:46:04 -0700

San Francisco Giants 3B Casey McGehee (knee) remains out of the lineup Wednesday, April 15. 2B Matt Duffy will start at third base again and hit second in the lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Tyler Matzek.

Fantasy Tip: Duffy ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a low-priced flier while hitting high in the order against Matzek, who has been generous to right-handed hitters in his career.

Giants | Matt Duffy hitting second against Rockies

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 14:20:50 -0700

San Francisco Giants 3B/SS Matt Duffy is batting second against the Colorado Rockies Wednesday, April 15.

Fantasy Tip: Hitting in the two hole, Duffy ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has nice upside as a low-priced flier for FantasyScore players Wednesday. Opposing southpaw Tyler Matzek has allowed a career slash line of .302/.373/.463 to right-handed batters. At this point, Duffy doesn't move the needle in the majority of seasonal formats.

Giants | Casey McGehee still out

Tue, 14 Apr 2015 16:45:50 -0700

San Francisco Giants 3B Casey McGehee (knee) remains out of the starting lineup Tuesday, April 14. 2B Matt Duffy is starting at third base and hitting sixth in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: McGehee's injury isn't believed to be serious, so he could return any day now. Duffy ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) isn't a recommended FantasyScore play Tuesday night, even against Colorado Rockies starter Christian Bergman.

Giants | Casey McGehee out Monday

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 10:33:33 -0700

San Francisco Giants 3B Casey McGehee (knee) is not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Eddie Butler Monday, April 13, after suffering a bone bruise in his knee Saturday, April 11. 2B Matt Duffy is starting at the hot corner and hitting seventh in the lineup Monday.

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear when McGehee ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) will be able to return, so keep an eye on his progress. He was off to a 5-for-21 (.238) start to the year with a homer, and he's more of a low-end third base option at FantasyScore. Duffy ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is an even less-attractive daily play.

Giants | Brandon Belt out until Monday?

Thu, 09 Apr 2015 14:40:10 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt (groin) might not return until the team's home opener Monday, April 13, but manager Bruce Bochy isn't ruling out using Belt in the lineup before then if he continues to progress. Belt has progressed from swinging off a tee to hitting off a machine. Bochy is looking at using 2B Matt Duffy at first base Saturday, April 11. C Buster Posey will start at first Friday, April 10.

Fantasy Tip: You should avoid Belt ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) entirely this weekend at FantasyScore to be on the safe side. Joaquin Arias ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) and Duffy are not recommended plays in daily games against the San Diego Padres at Petco Park.

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.

Fri, 19 Dec 2014 14:56:33 -0800

Giants | Brandon Belt back to DL

Fri, 08 Aug 2014 15:01:35 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt (head) is headed back to the disabled list. 2B Matt Duffy is being recalled in a corresponding move, and he's starting at second base Friday, Aug. 8.

Fantasy Tip: Apparently Belt's headaches were related to his recent concussion, which is very troubling for his owners. Concussions aren't anything to mess with, and Belt could be out for a while depending on how he responds to rest. In his absence, Michael Morse is likely to play first base frequently, with either Juan Perez or Gregor Blanco filling in in left field.
