Giants | Jake Peavy moving to bullpens

Mon, 04 May 2015 16:26:12 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy (back) is hoping to throw a bullpen session Tuesday, May 5, before moving to rehab games. He is receiving daily chiropractic and strength work on his back.

Fantasy Tip: Peavy ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) will likely return to the starting rotation and bump Ryan Vogelsong back to a long-relief role when he's ready. However, at Peavy's age, the Giants likely won't rush him back. Peavy is strictly an NL-only commodity that should only be chosen at FantasyScore if the matchup is juicy.

Giants | Jake Peavy throws Saturday

Sat, 02 May 2015 11:01:59 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy (back) threw 20-25 fastballs at 70-80 percent during a bullpen session Saturday, May 2, and reportedly felt improvement in his lower back. It was the first time he had thrown off a mound since landing on the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: It is uncertain if Peavy ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) will be sent on a minor league rehab assignment before he is activated from the disabled list. Regardless of what happens, FantasyScore owners should monitor the results of his first game back before seriously considering him as a pitching option.

Giants | Jake Peavy throws bullpen session

Fri, 01 May 2015 17:30:32 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy (back) will throw a bullpen session Saturday, May 2.

Fantasy Tip: Peavy is making his way back from a strained lower back. It's uncertain if he will need to go out on a minor-league rehab stint or if he will be activated from the DL when eligible in a few days. Either way, FantasyScore owners need to wait to see him officially return and make his way through a full start without lingering effects of the injury before trusting him again.

Giants | Jake Peavy has lower back strain

Sun, 19 Apr 2015 12:24:57 -0700

Updating a previous report, San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy (back) was placed on the 15-day disabled list because of a lower back strain. He had been scheduled to make his next start against the Los Angeles Dodgers Thursday, April 23. Manager Bruce Bochy is uncertain how his spot in the rotation will be filled but the club could turn to Ryan Vogelsong or Yusmeiro Petit for a spot start or promote a starter from the minors. Bochy also mentioned the team could use a four-man rotation for the next week but it would require some of their starters to pitch on short rest.

Fantasy Tip: It is still uncertain how much time Peavy is expected to miss. Both Vogelsong ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) and Petit have struggled this season and neither pitcher would make a viable FantasyScore option Thursday.

Giants | Jake Peavy to DL

Sat, 18 Apr 2015 15:04:32 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy (undisclosed) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Saturday, April 18. C Andrew Susac was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento.

Fantasy Tip: Peavy was ineffective in his first start, and there's no word on the specific nature of the DL stint. It could be related to the back issue that delayed his start to the season. Ryan Vogelsong ($3,200, 6.4% of your cap) could re-enter the rotation, but he has given up 12 earned runs in 10 1/3 innings thus far.

Giants | Jake Peavy's back improving

Thu, 09 Apr 2015 10:14:36 -0700

Updating previous reports, San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy (back) will avoid the disabled list after trainers relieved the irritation of the sacroiliac joint in his back. Peavy received a massage deep enough to bruise his back, and the trainers are believed to have unlocked the joint. He'll throw a bullpen session Thursday, April 9, as the final hurdle in order to make his start Sunday, April 12.

Fantasy Tip: Ordinarily, a start in PETCO Park would be a fruitful matchup. The Padres have scored 4.7 runs per game through the first three. At $4,400 (8.8% of your cap), the price might not be right for Peavy after the back woes.

Giants | Jake Peavy on track to start Sunday

Wed, 08 Apr 2015 17:00:29 -0700

Updating an ongoing story, San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy (back) is on track to start Sunday, April 12, according to manager Bruce Bochy.

Fantasy Tip: Peavy ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) was originally scheduled to start Tuesday, but he was scratched. Until Peavy proves his health on the hill, he can be bypassed in a matchup against the San Diego Padres on Sunday.

Giants | Jake Peavy headed to DL

Wed, 08 Apr 2015 05:37:51 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy (back) is likely headed to the disabled list because of continued back spasms Tuesday, April 7.

Fantasy Tip: Yusmeiro Petit ($3,000, 6.0% of your cap) could be next into the rotation. He pitched a couple of gems in spot starts last season and would be a nice low-end flyer on FantasyScore.

Giants | Jake Peavy throws in bullpen

Tue, 07 Apr 2015 19:22:38 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy (back) was able to throw a bullpen session Tuesday, April 7. He is on track to make his first scheduled start of the season Sunday, April 12, against the San Diego Padres.

Fantasy Tip: Peavy was originally penciled in to start Tuesday, but he was scratched Monday due to a sore back. FantasyScore owners will want to be really careful with Peavy at $4,400 (or 8.8% of cap). Let him pitch and make it through a full start without any setbacks before trusting him again.

Giants | Jake Peavy scratched from start

Mon, 06 Apr 2015 23:01:22 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy (back) was scratched from his scheduled start Tuesday, April 7, against the Arizona Diamondbacks due to a back injury. He is hopeful of making his next scheduled start Sunday, April 12, against the San Diego Padres.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan Vogelsong will take the ball Tuesday. At $3,000 (or 6.0% of cap) he is a nice FantasyScore value against a Diamondbacks team which is just 6-19 in their past 25 games against the Giants.
