Giants | Madison Bumgarner has owned Brewers

Tue, 26 May 2015 16:34:17 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner is 4-2 with a 1.65 ERA in seven career starts against the Milwaukee Brewers, who he faces Tuesday, May 26. He is 1-0 with a 0.57 ERA in two starts at Miller Park.

Fantasy Tip: Even though the Brewers aren't nearly as anemic on offense as they were in the season's opening month, Bumgarner ($8,500, 17.0% of cap) remains a fine starting pitching option tonight on the road, especially given his career numbers against the Brew Crew.

Giants | Buster Posey hits well in Milwaukee

Tue, 26 May 2015 16:26:12 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey hit hitting .381 in his career at Miller Park, the home of the Milwaukee Brewers, and he has six home runs and 15 RBI in 42 at-bats there. His 1.306 OPS there is the best of any park in which he's played more than three games.

Fantasy Tip: Posey ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) remains a safe option at catcher for FantasyScore users if you're willing to pay up for production. He's hit well in May, going 28-for-78 (.359) with four home runs and 14 RBI after a slow April.

Giants | Angel Pagan resting Tuesday

Tue, 26 May 2015 15:54:21 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Angel Pagan is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 26. OF Gregor Blanco is starting in center field and hitting seventh in the batting order against Milwaukee Brewers SP Matt Garza. Also, OF Hunter Pence moves up to the third spot in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has his only homer of the year and is hitting .296 (24-for-81) against right-handed hurlers this year, making him a sleeper option for FantasyScore users tonight against Garza, who recently allowed 10 earned runs in 3 1/3 innings to the New York Mets.

Giants | Matt Cain throws simulated innings

Tue, 26 May 2015 14:25:02 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Matt Cain (elbow) threw 25 pitches in a simulated inning Tuesday, May 26, and he used all of his pitches.

Fantasy Tip: Cain ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) must still go on a rehab assignment before he rejoins the Giants' rotation, so it may still be several weeks before he will make his 2015 debut. Stash him now if he's available in your league. Cain could make for a decent matchup play once he's healthy.

Giants | Norichika Aoki picks up four more hits

Mon, 25 May 2015 15:41:42 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Norichika Aoki had his fifth career four-hit game Monday, May 25, against the Milwaukee Brewers. It was Aokia's first four-hit game this season, and he now owns a .484 batting average since May 15.

Fantasy Tip: Aoki ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) has gone hitless in just one of his last nine games. Hitting near the top of the Giants lineup, Aoki should be a regular choice for cash games on FantasyScore.

Giants | Buster Posey on the bench

Mon, 25 May 2015 10:15:37 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey is not in the starting lineup Monday, May 25. C Andrew Susac will be the starting catcher for the Giants.

Fantasy Tip: Posey ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) was expected to receive an off day soon and should play in the next game. Susac is only hitting .200 at the plate this season and is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.

Giants | Tim Hudson can't master Coors

Mon, 25 May 2015 01:24:01 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Tim Hudson is winless in 10 career stats at Coors Field with a 7.69 ERA.

Fantasy Tip: Hudson ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) may not make it back to Coors Field as there are rumors of his retirement following the season. Overall he is 2-3 with a 4.01 ERA, so subtract Coors and he isn't too bad. Still, analyze the matchup with Hudson before starting him.

Giants | Brandon Crawford out Sunday

Sun, 24 May 2015 12:41:27 -0700

San Francisco Giants SS Brandon Crawford is getting the day off against the Colorado Rockies Sunday, May 24. INF Joaquin Arias is starting in his place.

Fantasy Tip: Arias ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) enters play batting .188 this season and is still looking for his first hit in the month of May. Avoid using him in FantasyScore this afternoon.

Giants | Casey McGehee cut

Sun, 24 May 2015 11:34:18 -0700

The San Francisco Giants have designated 3B Casey McGehee for assignment. As a result, 3B Matt Duffy will take over as the club's everyday third baseman.

Fantasy Tip: After driving in 76 runs for the Marlins last year, McGehee ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) hit just .200 this season with two home runs and nine RBIs in 35 games. Duffy ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) can be viewed as a low-cost flier in FantasyScore and is worth picking up in NL-only fantasy leagues.

Giants | Brandon Belt heating up

Sat, 23 May 2015 06:07:45 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt went 3-for-5 with two runs, a home run and three RBI against the Colorado Rockies Friday, May 22. It was his fourth home run over his past six games, and he has 11 runs, nine RBI and a 1.616 OPS during the run.

Fantasy Tip: Belt ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has flashed tremendous upside for stretches over the past three seasons, but injuries have always halted his ascend. While he is rolling at the dish, FantasyScore players have a nice value play on their hands, especially with a few more games at Coors Field on deck this weekend.

Giants | Matt Cain continues to progress

Fri, 22 May 2015 15:49:04 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Matt Cain (elbow) threw his entire repertoire of pitches during a bullpen session Friday, May 22, and he could face hitters Tuesday, May 26.

Fantasy Tip: Cain ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) was on the decline before his injury-plagued era began, so fantasy owners will want to keep their expectations in check in all formats upon his return. Continue to check back for updates on his recovery and an updated timeline for his return.

Giants | Ryan Vogelsong struggles at Coors Field

Fri, 22 May 2015 15:07:40 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Ryan Vogelsong has lost three consecutive games at Coors Field with a 13.50 ERA, and he has allowed opposing hitters to hit .400 (22-for-55) against him over those starts.

Fantasy Tip: It would be ill-advised to start Vogelsong ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) in any fantasy format Friday, especially in FantasyScore contests. There are too many elite arms and viable mid-range starters available in the player pool for daily players to risk Vogelsong.

Giants | Casey McGehee out again

Fri, 22 May 2015 14:29:20 -0700

San Francisco Giants 3B Casey McGehee is not in the starting lineup against the Colorado Rockies Friday, May 22. SS Matt Duffy is batting eighth and starting at third base Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid McGehee ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) in all fantasy formats Friday. He is currently sporting a .524 OPS and has just seven runs and nine RBI. Duffy ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should be viewed as a low-priced flier for FantasyScore contests Friday, and he receives a slight boost with the game being played a hitter-friendly Coors Field.

Giants | Chris Heston gets the nod Saturday

Fri, 22 May 2015 06:02:47 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Chris Heston will start Game 1 of the doubleheader at the Colorado Rockies Saturday, May 23.

Fantasy Tip: Heston ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) is a mid-priced starting pitcher with poor road splits this year. He offers strikeout potential but is a risky proposition for fantasy owners at Coors Field.

Giants | Yusmeiro Petit to start Saturday

Fri, 22 May 2015 05:52:58 -0700

San Francisco Giants RP Yusmeiro Petit will start Game 2 of the doubleheader at the Colorado Rockies Saturday, May 23.

Fantasy Tip: Petit is making his first start of 2015 and sports a 5.74 lifetime ERA in nine appearances, which includes five starts, at Coors Field. Avoid him in all formats.
