Giants | San Francisco looks at Andrew Cashner

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 08:25:06 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner received trade interest from the San Francisco Giants, but the Giants are looking for more bullpen help.

Fantasy Tip: Cashner is receiving interest from several teams and probably will be moved before the trade deadline. Cashner has been pitching well over the last few weeks and should be a decent fantasy option no matter where he plays.

Giants | Buster Posey exits with foot injury

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 20:10:14 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey (foot) exited against the New York Yankees Friday, July 22, after fouling a ball of his left foot. X-rays were negative and he is considered day-to-day.

Fantasy Tip: Trevor Brown will likely see most of the start for as long as Posey is out, and Brown could be a useful sleeper in DFS formats.

Giants | Hunter Pence, Joe Panik taking it slow

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 16:23:57 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence (hamstring) and 2B Joe Panik (concussion) are taking the day off in their rehab assignment at Class AAA Sacramento Friday, July 22. Pence's rest was planned, but Panik "just wasn't feeling great" after Thursday, July 21. General manager Bobby Evans said Panik has passed his concussion protocols and wasn't woozy. Rather, Panik's timing at the plate has been off. There remain no tentative dates for Pence and Panik to return from the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: The Giants are being very cautious with both of their regulars. Pence is the more attractive fantasy commodity and should still be stashed in all leagues as he nears a return. He isn't running anymore these days, but his .298 average and seven home runs looked nice before his injury. Panik offers very modest returns in all categories at the keystone and is more of a depth piece in deep mixed and NL-only leagues when he's back.

Giants | Matt Duffy close to rehab assignment

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 14:35:20 -0700

San Francisco Giants 3B Matt Duffy (Achilles') continues to make progress and is a week away from starting a rehab assignment.

Fantasy Tip: Duffy has posted an underwhelming .253/.313/.358 slash line this season with only four home runs and 21 RBI in 70 games. He's not worth stashing outside of very deep mixed leagues and NL-only universes.

Giants | SF monitoring Philly relievers

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 11:42:29 -0700

The San Francisco Giants are scouring the reliever market and have had a top scout watching Philadelphia Phillies RPs Jeanmar Gomez and David Hernandez.

Fantasy Tip: While not a dominant closer by any stretch, Santiago Casilla isn't in any danger of losing his ninth-inning job, so Gomez and Hernandez would just bolster the back end. Gomez is a low-end fantasy closer without many strikeouts, and he'd lose most of his value in a setup role with the Giants.

Giants | Trevor Brown has good game

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 23:53:36 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Trevor Brown went 3-for-5 with a home run, two runs scored and two RBI against the Boston Red Sox on Wednesday, July 20.

Fantasy Tip: Making his first appearance since July 3, Brown showed no signs of rust and continues to produce well (.261-5-15 in 111 ABs) behind Buster Posey. He doesn't play enough to warrant a roster spot, but if anything were to happen to Posey, Brown would deserve a look.

Giants | Matt Cain rocked in return

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 23:10:04 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Matt Cain surrendered five runs on six hits over 2 1/3 innings against the Boston Red Sox on Wednesday, July 20. It was his first start since June 13 due to a hamstring injury.

Fantasy Tip: Cain was rolling in May, but injuries have limited him to two unimpressive starts in June and July combined. That previous flash of dominance might be enough to hold onto him in NL-only leagues, but all other owners should steer clear.

Giants | Slow progress for Hunter Pence

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 16:50:24 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence (hamstring) is still not ready to resume his rehab assignment with Class AAA Sacramento, four days after he aggravated his right hamstring in a rehab game. Manager Bruce Bochy said the Giants are being cautious with Pence, and he could rehab Thursday, July 21. Pence is at least a week behind his target date of Monday, July 25, but Bochy says the setback was "a little one."

Fantasy Tip: Pence is making his way back from a torn hamstring that came completely off the bone, so it's understandable for the Giants to practice caution here. When healthy, Pence is a middle-tier fantasy outfielder who was batting a healthy .298 with seven long balls and 36 RBI before his injury. He doesn't run anymore but can still help owners in all leagues when he's back.

Giants | Joe Panik set to return Friday

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 16:48:58 -0700

San Francisco Giants 2B Joe Panik (concussion) seems ready to return from the 7-day concussion disabled list Friday, July 22. He didn't have any recurrence of concussion symptoms after his rehab appearance with Class AAA Sacramento Tuesday, July 19. He'll play seven innings Wednesday, July 20, and nine innings Thursday, July 21.

Fantasy Tip: Panik is a modest contributor across all categories for the Gigantes and was hitting .256 with only seven home runs, 36 RBI and five steals before his head injury. Still, he moves the needle in NL-only leagues because he'll return to regular starting duties at second base.

Giants | Still no timeline for Matt Duffy

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 14:37:01 -0700

San Francisco Giants 3B Matt Duffy (Achilles') is running well, but there still is not a date for him to begin a rehab assignment.

Fantasy Tip: Duffy is a stash candidate, but if you're forced to make a tough roster decision, he hasn't been a great fantasy contributor this season and clearly isn't close to returning. Plus, he's posted an underwhelming .253/.313/.358 slash line this year.

Giants | Trevor Brown draws into lineup

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 11:50:39 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Trevor Brown is catching and hitting eighth against Boston Red Sox SP Drew Pomeranz Wednesday, July 20. C Buster Posey is serving as the designated hitter in an American League park.

Fantasy Tip: Brown faces a tough matchup in Pomeranz but is hitting at Fenway Park. Brown has some occasional power with four dingers and 13 RBI, but he's nothing more than a low-end catcher flier in daily games. Posey is an elite backstop that should be started regularly.

Giants | Matt Cain back from DL

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 11:27:29 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Matt Cain (hamstring) was activated from the disabled list Wednesday, July 20, and SS Ruben Tejada was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Cain isn't of much use to fantasy owners in the right matchups outside of NL-only leagues, and he has an unsightly 5.34 ERA, 1.51 WHIP and is fanning just 6.4 hitters per nine innings. Leave him alone in mixed universes.

Giants | Jake Peavy loses in return to Fenway

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 22:03:21 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy surrendered four runs on three hits in six innings against the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday, July 19. Peavy walked one and struck out six.

Fantasy Tip: Good news: Peavy allowed only three hits. Bad news: two of them were home runs. The veteran has improved each month following a disastrous April that's still playing havoc with his ratios, but he's pitching well enough these days to be regularly deployed in deeper mixed leagues.

Giants | Hunter Pence, Joe Panik rehabbing

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 14:35:58 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence (hamstring) and 2B Joe Panik (concussion) are both expected to play for Class AAA Sacramento Tuesday, July 19.

Fantasy Tip: Pence should remain stashed everywhere, as he was hitting .298 with seven home runs and 36 RBI in 208 plate appearances before his injury. He doesn't run anymore, but he's still useful in all fantasy formats. Panik doesn't do anything overly well and is mainly a depth option in deep mixed and NL-only leagues when he's starting every day. Stay tuned on their progress and when they might return.

Giants | Denard Span favors Fenway Park

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 12:30:05 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Denard Span is hitting .302 (16-for-53) with a .393 on-base percentage in 14 career games at Fenway Park, where he'll face the Boston Red Sox Tuesday, July 19.

Fantasy Tip: Span is giving his fantasy owners modest returns with a .248 average, 40 runs, four homers, 30 RBI and nine steals in 82 games thus far. He doesn't often fill out the stat sheet and isn't a popular daily pick, but he can be useful as outfield depth in deep mixed and NL-only leagues.
