San Francisco Giants RP Santiago Casilla (knee) will undergo an exam Thursday, May 9, to determine the severity of his right knee injury.
Fantasy Tip: Casilla is a very key piece in the Giants' bullpen as the eighth-inning setup man to Sergio Romo. If he has to land on the disabled list, either Javier Lopez or Jeremy Affeldt would likely be trusted with setup duties.

San Francisco Giants RP Jeremy Affeldt (oblique) is expected to throw a bullpen session Saturday, April 27. He is eligible to be activated from the disabled list Tuesday, April 30.
Wed, 17 Apr 2013 11:08:25 -0700
The San Francisco Giants placed RP Jeremy Affeldt (oblique) on the 15-day disabled list. RP Jean Machi was recalled in his place.
Fantasy Tip: This cements Santiago Casilla, at least for now, as the primary backup to closer Sergio Romo, whom the Giants may rest more in the coming weeks because of his furious early-season workload. Casilla isn't a bad deep-league grab, but his SV contributions will be infrequent without a Romo injury. Casilla's erratic peripherals might not be worth putting into your lineup unless you're in a daily format and the incumbent's workload piles up.

The San Francisco Giants are placing RP Jeremy Affeldt (oblique) on the 15-day disabled list with an oblique injury Tuesday, April 16. RP Jean Machi will be recalled from the minors.

San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy plans to have a sit-down meeting with his bullpen soon. RP Sergio Romo will start the year as the closer, but RPs Jeremy Affeldt, Santiago Casilla and Javier Lopez will all see save chances throughout the year.
Fantasy Tip: It was already known that the Gigantes wanted to limit Romo's innings heading into the 2013 season, and this news confirms that thinking. Romo has excellent command and peripherals but will slip a tad in value if this turns into a quasi committee.
