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 | Matt Cain to throw on flat ground

Fri, 01 May 2015 17:31:48 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Matt Cain (forearm) will throw off flat ground for the next seven to 10 days before progressing to the mound.

Fantasy Tip: Cain will not return for a while, so fantasy owners in standard leagues need to be patient. FantasyScore players can estimate Cain will not be back for at least a month, if not longer. Everyone stay patient.

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 | Hunter Pence back in late May?

Fri, 01 May 2015 17:25:49 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence (arm) might re-join the big club in the late part of May, manager Bruce Bochy said Friday, May 1.

Fantasy Tip: Pence should be avoided by FantasyScore owners until he can officially return and play a handful of games to knock off the rust after his considerable layoff.

Giants | Joe Panik resting Friday

Fri, 01 May 2015 15:52:51 -0700

San Francisco Giants 2B Joe Panik is not in the starting lineup against a left-handed pitcher Friday, May 1. 2B Matt Duffy is starting at the keystone and hitting second in the batting order against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP C.J. Wilson.

Fantasy Tip: Duffy ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting only .239 (11-for-46) with one home run and seven RBI, and he doesn't have a ton of offensive upside. A high lineup position makes him a low-priced sleeper, however, against Wilson.

Giants | Tim Hudson leaning towards swan song

Fri, 01 May 2015 10:48:42 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Tim Hudson is leaning towards retiring after this season.

Fantasy Tip: Huddy ($4,500, 9.0% of your cap) isn't the underrated star he used to be, but he's still a decent matchup play on FantasyScore.

Giants | Ryan Vogelsong tagged for four homers

Thu, 30 Apr 2015 04:56:29 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Ryan Vogelsong had four home runs hit off of him Wednesday, April 29, in a 7-3 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers. "I warmed up fine in the bullpen and felt fine, physically. I just didn't make very good pitches," Vogelsong said. "Not all of them were up, but some were, for sure. They weren't terrible pitches, just not as good as they needed to be."

Fantasy Tip: Vogelsong ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) has been pretty shaky as of late, so the best thing to do is stay away from this pitcher. He is in the rotation to replace the injured Jake Peavy, but he could end up demoted after a performance like this.

Giants | Hunter Pence nearing BP

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 19:25:04 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence (arm) "had his best day" of rehab Wednesday, April 29, according to manager Bruce Bochy. He might be just a couple of days away from taking batting practice.

Fantasy Tip: Pence is making progress, but FantasyScore players should still not expect to use him until at least mid-May. He might return soon, but give him a handful of games to knock off the rust and get into the groove before trusting him again.

Giants | Matt Cain feeling no discomfort

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 17:02:26 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Matt Cain (forearm) played catch from 60 feet Tuesday, April 28, and reported no discomfort. Cain will do the same exercise Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Cain ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) is yet to appear in the majors in 2015 and isn't worthy of a roster spot in season-long leagues. Cain will be worth the occasional spot-start on FantasyScore, in favorable matchups. Owners should allow him a handful of starts after returning before making the investment.

Giants | Brandon Crawford out vs. tough lefty

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 16:39:25 -0700

San Francisco Giants SS Brandon Crawford is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, April 28. 3B Joaquin Arias is starting at the 6 and hitting eighth in the batting order against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw.

Fantasy Tip: Arias ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a very weak third base option in daily games tonight. He is 9-for-34 (.265) with one RBI in his career against Kershaw.

Giants | Joe Panik resting against lefty

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 16:33:51 -0700

San Francisco Giants 2B Joe Panik is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, April 28. 2B Matt Duffy is starting at the keystone and hitting second in the batting order against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw.

Fantasy Tip: Duffy ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has three hits in five career at-bats against Kershaw, but we don't recommend him as a cheap option for your second base spot at FantasyScore tonight.

Giants | Justin Maxwell hot of late

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 11:46:33 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Justin Maxwell homered in each of the two games over the weekend and is batting .308 with a 1.015 OPS in 39 at-bats this season, and manager Bruce Bochy said he'll keep playing Maxwell in right field until OF Hunter Pence (arm) returns. Maxwell could knock OF Norichika Aoki out of the lineup once Pence returns on occasion.

Fantasy Tip: It's hard not to want to sneak Maxwell ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) into your FantasyScore lineups while he's on fire. Tonight is another one of those occasions, as he's facing Los Angeles Dodgers left-handed starter Brett Anderson.

Giants | Brandon Belt could play LF

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 11:42:02 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt will see some starts in left field soon with C Andrew Susac behind the plate and C Buster Posey starting at first base, according to manager Bruce Bochy.

Fantasy Tip: Belt ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is off to a bit of a slow start this year (.233-0-4), but he has plenty of time to bounce back, and he'll continue to see regular playing time. A move to left field might bump either Norichika Aoki ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) or Justin Maxwell ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) out of the lineup that day.

Giants | Angel Pagan hitting third

Sat, 25 Apr 2015 13:39:25 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Angel Pagan is hitting third Saturday, April 25, against a left-handed starter.

Fantasy Tip: Pagan is hitting .329 on the season and is 7-for-16 (.438) against left-handers. At just $2,700 (5.4% of your cap), he's an excellent low-end outfield flyer.

Giants | Brandon Belt sitting Saturday

Sat, 25 Apr 2015 13:38:48 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt is out of the lineup Saturday, April 25, against a left-handed starter.

Fantasy Tip: Buster Posey ($5,600, 11.2% of your cap) shifts to first base, and he is an everyday catcher option on FantasyScore.
