Giants | Angel Pagan still sidelined

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 14:12:17 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Angel Pagan (knees) remains out of the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 4. OF Gregor Blanco is starting in center field and hitting second against Atlanta Braves SP Shelby Miller.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has good splits against right-handers this season (.306-3-18 in 183 at-bats). However, despite a lack of wins to back him, Miller has been one of the better pitchers in baseball this year with a 2.44 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 111 strikeouts in 133 innings. Blanco's price is very attractive, but selecting him for your daily lineups could backfire tonight.

Giants | Santiago Casilla to remain closer?

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 11:45:27 -0700

San Francisco Giants RP Santiago Casilla blew the save against the Atlanta Braves Monday, Aug. 3, which led to a loss for the Giants in the 12th inning. It was his fifth blown save of the year, but Giants TV announcer Duane Kuiper doesn't think manager Bruce Bochy will make a change in the ninth inning. Casilla is 4-2 this year with a 3.32 ERA and 27 saves, and he had converted seven straight saves before his blown save Monday. Kuiper doesn't think RP Hunter Strickland is a candidate to replace Casilla.

Fantasy Tip: If Casilla were to be demoted from ninth-inning duties, it'd likely be Sergio Romo, and not Strickland, moving into the role. Romo has experience closing with the Giants. If you're looking for saves and weren't able to land a reliever that moved into the role at the trade deadline, Romo might be your ticket for saves down the stretch if Casilla comes unraveled.

Giants | Angel Pagan scratched

Mon, 03 Aug 2015 14:44:28 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Angel Pagan (knees) was scratched from the starting lineup Monday, Aug. 3, because of sore knees. OF Gregor Blanco will take his place in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to look for an update to see the severity of Pagan's ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) injuries. Blanco ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is hitting .296 with 20 RBI this season and could be a cheaper option for owners on FantasyScore.

Giants | Joe Panik to undergo MRI

Mon, 03 Aug 2015 14:34:04 -0700

San Francisco Giants 2B Joe Panik (back) is scheduled to return to San Francisco in order to undergo an MRI and a CAT scan on his injured back.

Fantasy Tip: Panik ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) will be sidelined for at least a few weeks because of the injury, but owners will receive a better timetable after he undergoes the tests. Ehire Adrianza ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) and Kelby Tomlinson are options to start at second base but are not great fantasy options.

Giants | Ehire Adrianza starting at the keystone

Mon, 03 Aug 2015 13:39:06 -0700

San Francisco Giants SS Ehire Adrianza is starting at second base and batting eighth against Atlanta Braves SP Mike Foltynewicz Monday, Aug. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Adrianza ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief for FantasyScore players Monday. With Joe Panik (back) on the disabled list, Adrianza and Kelby Tomlinson project to split time at second base. Their fantasy value is limited, though.

Giants | Joe Panik placed on DL

Mon, 03 Aug 2015 12:36:58 -0700

San Francisco Giants 2B Joe Panik (back) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Monday, Aug. 3, because of lower back inflammation. The team also recalled 2B Kelby Tomlinson from Class AAA Sacramento.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor Panik's ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) recovery to see when he will be able to return to the lineup. Ehire Adrianza ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) and Kelby Tomlinson could see playing time while Panik is out. Neither is a great option for owners in most fantasy leagues, but Tomlinson could be an NL-only option because of his speed.

Giants | Joe Panik could miss another game

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 17:43:49 -0700

San Francisco Giants 2B Joe Panik (back) could sit out against the Atlanta Braves Monday, Aug. 3, manager Bruce Bochy said Sunday, Aug. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Panik ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) has missed three of the last six games, and it sounds like his back issue is a lingering problem. He has been one of the steadier options at second base, but you will have to monitor his status one game-to-game basis if you plan on using him at FantasyScore.

Giants | Joe Panik not playing Sunday

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 11:40:38 -0700

San Francisco Giants 2B Joe Panik (back) is not in the starting lineup Sunday, Aug. 2. 2B Ehire Adrianza is playing in Panik's place.

Fantasy Tip: Panik ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) has missed two of the past four games due to back issues, so keep an eye on how this plays out in the future. Adrianza ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) does not have fantasy value thanks to his .136 average.

Giants | Nori Aoki batting second

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 11:37:27 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Nori Aoki is batting second in the lineup Sunday, Aug. 2, against the Texas Rangers.

Fantasy Tip: Aoki ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) does not have a hit in three appearances at the No. 2 slot, but he does hit .343 against lefties like Rangers starter Martin Perez. He is worth the start thanks to the favorable FantasyScore matchup.

Giants | Tim Lincecum starts soft toss

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 05:31:08 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Tim Lincecum (arm) started doing some soft toss Saturday, Aug. 1. Manager Bruce Bochy said Lincecum is making progress.

Fantasy Tip: Lincecum ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has been on the disabled list since getting hit in the arm, but he's also dealing with deterioration of his hips. It is unclear when he'll be able to return to the mound this season, and he should only be stashed in deeper NL-only leagues.

Giants | Santiago Casilla gets save No. 27

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 05:26:36 -0700

San Francisco Giants RP Santiago Casilla picked up his 27th save of the season Saturday, Aug. 1, against the Texas Rangers.

Fantasy Tip: Casilla has 27 saves in 31 chances this season, with a 2.89 ERA and a 9.40 K/9. Casilla has blown just two saves since the beginning of June, and he's an extremely safe fantasy commodity.

Giants | Brandon Belt homers twice

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 05:25:58 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt homered twice Saturday, Aug. 1, against the Texas Rangers.

Fantasy Tip: Belt ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) has 12 home runs for the season, after hitting just one homer in July. Owners will want to see this power surge continue in order to get some upside out of Belt.

Giants | Hector Sanchez starting

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 15:20:08 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Hector Sanchez will start behind the plate and hit ninth in the order Saturday, Aug. 1, against the Texas Rangers and LHP Cole Hamels. C Buster Posey will hit fourth in the order and serve as the designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) won't be worth looking at on FantasyScore.

Giants | Nori Aoki sitting Saturday

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 15:19:36 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Nori Aoki is sitting out Saturday, Aug. 1, against the Texas Rangers. OF Justin Maxwell will start in left field and hit sixth in the lineup against LHP Cole Hamels.

Fantasy Tip: Maxwell ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is hitting a meager .212 against southpaws this season, and he should be avoided for FantasyScore contests.

Giants | Joe Panik back in there

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 16:17:56 -0700

San Francisco Giants 2B Joe Panik (back) is back in the starting lineup and is hitting second against Texas Rangers SP Nick Martinez Friday, July 31.

Fantasy Tip: Panik ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) has been very consistent this year and is in a great lineup position for daily success. Facing struggling starter Martinez is just another reason to feel good about having him in your daily lineup tonight, too, even if he is returning from a short absence.
