Giants | Jake Peavy gets rare win

Sun, 16 Aug 2015 05:04:46 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy won for the first time in four starts Saturday, Aug. 15, against the Washington Nationals.

Fantasy Tip: Peavy ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) was lucky to get the win, as his five earned runs against were the most he has allowed in a start all season. Peavy had allowed just three runs in his previous three starts, but due to a high WHIP and a low strikeout rate, he's not a strong FantasyScore option.

Giants | Jake Peavy turns in quality start

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 20:16:51 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy allowed one earned run, five hits and a walk with eight strikeouts over six innings in a no-decision Tuesday, Aug. 4, against the Atlanta Braves.

Fantasy Tip: Peavy ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has struggled, but this was a vintage performance and he could be worth using in FantasyScore at a cut-rate price if he pieces together another quality start or two.

Giants | Jake Peavy good against Brewers

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 10:34:40 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy is 4-4 with a 2.44 ERA in 12 career starts against the Milwaukee Brewers, but he is 3-2 with a 1.56 ERA against them in his last six outings. Peavy faces the Brewers Wednesday, July 29.

Fantasy Tip: Sure, Peavy ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has been good against the Brew Crew in his career, and they aren't in contention this season. But the Brewers have actually been one of the hotter offensive clubs since the All-Star break, and Peavy has allowed seven runs in his last two starts. Peavy might be a bigger risk than you want to take in daily games today.

Giants | Jake Peavy gets first win

Sun, 19 Jul 2015 05:40:47 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy got his first win of the season Saturday, July 18, against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Fantasy Tip: Peavy ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is 1-4 through five starts on the season, but he has pitched at least 6 1/3 innings in each of his three starts since returning from the disabled list. Saturday's outing was actually Peavy's worst of the three, and he'll continue to be a risky play on FantasyScore, while not possessing much upside due to a low strikeout rate.

Giants | Jake Peavy tagged with loss

Wed, 08 Jul 2015 18:51:44 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy (0-4) allowed two runs (one earned) on six hits over seven innings in a loss to the New York Mets Wednesday, July 8, with one walk and five strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Peavy ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has pitched well in each of his last two outings but his biggest problem has been run support. The Giants have only scored a total of five runs in his four starts this year. Given the right matchup, Peavy is an inexpensive sleeper play in FantasyScore.

Giants | Jake Peavy has gained weight

Wed, 08 Jul 2015 15:51:18 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy said he has gained 10 pounds since he started lifting weights again after his back and hip ailments. Peavy thinks he will be strong in the second half of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Peavy ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) allowed two earned runs in 6 1/3 innings in his return against the Washington Nationals last Friday and put up another solid performance against the New York Mets today. If he's healthy, he's worth owning in all leagues as a matchup play, especially when pitching at home.

Giants | Jake Peavy solid in return

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 18:29:30 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy (back) took the loss in his first start since being activated from the disabled list, allowing two runs on three hits and striking out in 6 1/3 innings against the Washington Nationals Friday, July 3.

Fantasy Tip: Peavy ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) had struggled in his first two starts of the year before landing on the DL, but he turned in his best performance of the year Friday. He was actually solid with the Giants at the end of last season, but with his best years well behind him, Peavy is likely to be inconsistent from one start to the next and a risky option at FantasyScore.

Giants | Jake Peavy activated from DL

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 10:58:33 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy (back) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Friday, July 3. SP Tim Hudson (shoulder) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right shoulder strain.

Fantasy Tip: Peavy ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) faces a talented Washington Nationals lineup and doesn't have a lot of upside on FantasyScore. Hudson isn't worth stashing except maybe in NL-only leagues if you have the space.

Giants | Matt Cain, Jake Peavy returning this week

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 14:38:50 -0700

San Francisco Giants SPs Matt Cain (elbow) and Jake Peavy (back) will return from the disabled list later this week and re-enter the starting rotation. Manager Bruce Bochy confirmed that Cain will start Thursday, July 2, while Peavy will go Friday, July 3.

Fantasy Tip: The return of Cain ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) and Peavy ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) will push Tim Hudson and Tim Lincecum out of the rotation. Lincecum is headed for the DL, while Hudson is likely to pitch out of the bullpen. Cain will face the Miami Marlins Thursday, making him a risk/reward option on FantasyScore despite it being his first start back. Peavy should be avoided on FantasyScore against the Washington Nationals Friday. Both Cain and Peavy could be successfully used in shallow mixed leagues as matchup plays, with Cain having more fantasy upside. Hudson and Lincecum should be dropped in traditional formats.
