Giants | Buster Posey has sore hip

Wed, 20 Aug 2014 17:49:15 -0700

Updating a previous report, San Francisco Giants C/1B Buster Posey (hip) was out of the lineup Wednesday, Aug. 20, against the Chicago Cubs after his left hip flared up in the game Tuesday, Aug. 19. He received treatment and is available off the bench. Manager Bruce Bochy said he hopes Posey can return Wednesday, Aug. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Daily fantasy owners will want to be careful and wait to see Posey prove his health in one full game before plugging him back into the active lineup.

Giants | Brandon Belt remains sidelined

Wed, 20 Aug 2014 17:48:29 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt (concussion) had an examination Wednesday, Aug. 20, and he was informed it will be at least two to three more weeks until he is cleared to do any physical activity.

Fantasy Tip: The clock is ticking, and time is not on Belt's side. He might be able to return for a week or two of the regular season, but even that is debatable at this point. If you have the roster flexibility, hang onto him if you have waited this long. Fantasy owners who have limited roster space available might want to chance it and cut him for someone who can help now.

Giants | Joe Panik returns

Wed, 20 Aug 2014 17:47:50 -0700

San Francisco Giants 2B Joe Panik (finger) returned to the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 20, against the Chicago Cubs after missing a couple of days.

Fantasy Tip: Panik has seized the starting second base job, and he has emerged as a solid fantasy option in most NL-only leagues and deeper mixed formats. He entered the game Wednesday with three straight multi-hit efforts.

Giants | Win protest of tarp game

Wed, 20 Aug 2014 16:18:01 -0700

The San Francisco Giants won a protest filed on the lack of continued efforts by the Chicago Cubs to dry the field Tuesday, Aug. 19. After a four hour and 34 minute delay the game was called, with the Cubs rewarded a 2-0 win. However, the Giants protested and won, and the game will now be resumed Thursday, Aug. 21 at 4 p.m. before the regularly scheduled game, according to a source. The Giants are the first team in 28 years to win an MLB protest.

Fantasy Tip: It will be interesting to see how fantasy leagues, particularly daily formats, handle the situation. Ryan Vogelsong was rewarded with a complete game loss after working five innings, but with the game resuming, and Vogelsong unlikely to take the ball Thursday, that likely will be changed. It is a unique situation for sure.

Giants | Brandon Belt to meet with specialist

Fri, 15 Aug 2014 17:48:15 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt (concussion) is scheduled to meet with a concussion specialist in Pittsburgh next week, because he has not shown much improvement in his recovery from a concussion. Belt underwent an MRI Wednesday, Aug. 13, to see if he has an intracranial hemorrhage.

Fantasy Tip: It does not appear like Belt will be able to return in the near future since he has not shown a lot of improvement. Owners could consider dropping him if they need a player at another position.
