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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Fri, 22 May 2015 06:02:47 -0700
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.
Fri, 22 May 2015 05:52:58 -0700
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.

San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence went 2-for-4 with two RBIs in a 4-0 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers Thursday, May 21, and he has three multi-hit efforts in five games since returning from injury.
Fantasy Tip: Pence ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) has four RBIs and has scored five runs in five games this year, and he takes his hot bat to hitter friendly Coors Field next. He could make a solid option at FantasyScore all weekend.

San Francisco Giants SS Brandon Crawford is not in the starting lineup against a lefty Thursday, May 21. 3B Joaquin Arias is starting at the 6 and hitting sixth in the batting order against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw.
Fantasy Tip: Arias ($1,600, 3.2% of cap), a light-hitting utility infielder, should be avoided in daily games today against the best pitcher in baseball.
Thu, 21 May 2015 10:24:27 -0700
San Francisco Giants 2B Joe Panik is not in the starting lineup Thursday, May 21. 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 ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has been surprisingly productive for the Giants this year as a utility player, driving in 16 runs. However, you should see him as a weak play Thursday afternoon against the reigning NL Cy Young.
Thu, 21 May 2015 00:04:16 -0700
San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner is 1-0 with a 1.88 ERA against the Los Angeles Dodgers this season. In his last 12 starts against the Dodgers, Bumgarner is 8-3 with a 1.94 ERA. Bumgarner will pitch Thursday, May 21.
Fantasy Tip: Bumgarner ($8,500, 17.0% of cap) is a gifted pitcher, but there's something about the Dodgers that brings out the best in Bumgarner. He is a definite start.
Wed, 20 May 2015 23:55:51 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Posey ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) has been on a roll as of late, so don't sit him while he is on the hitting streak.
Wed, 20 May 2015 22:33:15 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Lincecum ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) has allowed runs in only one of his last four starts and currently has a 2.08 ERA. Lincecum could be a solid option for owners on FantasyScore against certain matchups.
Wed, 20 May 2015 22:32:40 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Posey ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) is currently on an eight-game winning streak and has 10 RBI in his last seven games. Owners on FantasyScore should consider using Posey on most nights.
