San Francisco Giants SP Tim Hudson (ankle) is behind in his preseason preparation because of his right ankle surgery, according to manager Bruce Bochy. However, SPs Ryan Vogelsong or Gregorio Petit could step in for Hudson if needed.
Fantasy Tip: At Hudson's age (39), we wouldn't be surprised at all if he's not ready for the regular season. Vogelsong and Petit could easily be asked to take over for Hudson during the year, too, if he's not performing up to standards. Hudson should be left to the waiver wire in standard leagues.

San Francisco Giants SP Tim Lincecum has all but been named the No. 5 starter by manager Bruce Bochy. SPs Ryan Vogelsong and Gregorio Petit will start the year in the bullpen, because Bochy prefers not to have a six-man rotation.
Fantasy Tip: Lincecum will likely open as the No. 5 starter, but that spot could be a revolving door between the three as the year progresses based on performance and rest needs. As a result, there's not much intrigue surrounding Lincecum in a standard 12-team league. He's more of a candidate for an NL-only pitching staff.
