Giants | Joe Panik back in lineup Thursday

Thu, 28 Jul 2016 18:52:34 -0700

San Francisco Giants 2B Joe Panik (concussion) is back in the lineup Thursday, July 28, against the Washington Nationals. He's starting at second base and batting third opposite SP Tanner Roark.

Fantasy Tip: Concussions can be tricky to return from, so owners might want to use some caution regarding Panik in his first couple games back from injury. This will be his first game in a month.

Giants | Joe Panik activated from DL

Thu, 28 Jul 2016 14:24:42 -0700

San Francisco Giants 2B Joe Panik (concussion) was activated from the disabled list Thursday, July 28. In a corresponding move, 2B Grant Green was optioned to the minors.

Fantasy Tip: When he's been healthy, Panik's had a respectable season with a .256/.321/407 slash line, 45 runs, seven home runs, 36 RBI and five stolen bases. However, while there's upside, he's likely best suited for deep leagues at this point.

Giants | Ramiro Pena has minor groin injury

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 19:31:54 -0700

San Francisco Giants INF Ramiro Pena (groin) was out of the starting lineup against the Cincinnati Reds Wednesday, July 27, after suffering a groin injury during the previous night's game. However, he did enter the game as a pinch runner.

Fantasy Tip: It appears as though Pena's injury is not serious. He should be owned in NL-only leagues due to his positional versatility and makes a decent source of salary cap relief in DFS when healthy.

Giants | Madison Bumgarner suffers loss Wednesday

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 19:07:51 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner (10-6) allowed two runs (one earned) on five hits over eight innings in a loss to the Cincinnati Reds Wednesday, July 27, with no walks and nine strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the loss, Bumgarner has tossed quality starts in four of his last five outings and has posted a 2.00 ERA over five starts this month. He should continue to be viewed as a must-start option in all fantasy formats every time he takes the mound.

Giants | Two Giants out of the lineup

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 16:19:00 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Jarrett Parker and 3B Conor Gillaspie are not in the starting lineup against Cincinnati Reds SP Cody Reed Tuesday, July 26. OF Mac Williamson will start in right field and is batting third. 2B Ramiro Pena will start at third base, while 2B Grant Green will start at second base and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Williamson is hitting .293 with four home runs and 11 RBI this month and can be an attractive option for owners in daily fantasy leagues. Grant is hitting .300 in his limited playing time this season but is still not a great fantasy option.

Giants | Brandon Belt has three hits

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 23:56:29 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt had three hits, including a home run, in a 7-5 loss to the Cincinnati Reds on Monday, July 25.

Fantasy Tip: Belt was dropped to sixth in the batting order prior to this game. Whether the change worked or Belt was long overdue for a breakout remains to be seen, but Belt may have shaken off some of the rust. Give him a flyer in daily and regular formats.

Giants | Matt Duffy nearing rehab stint

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 19:08:14 -0700

San Francisco 3B Matt Duffy (Achilles') ran curves Monday, July 25, and is "over the hump" in terms of his Achilles' pain. Duffy might begin a minor-league rehab assignment this weekend.

Fantasy Tip: Duffy was struggling before his injury, but he is worth scooping up and stashing away if available off the waiver wire. He hit .295 with 28 doubles, 12 homers and 77 RBIs, and he is a must-have when healthy.

Giants | Matt Duffy might be ready for rehab

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 18:07:53 -0700

San Francisco Giants 3B Matt Duffy (Achilles') ran curves Monday, July 25, and is "over the hump" regarding his Achilles' pain. He could possibly begin his rehab assignment this weekend.

Fantasy Tip: Duffy's been out over a month, so this is good news for his progress. If he's able to begin his minor league rehab assignment this weekend, that may put him on track for an early-August return. However, he's been a little disappointing this season after how well he fared in his first full campaign a year ago. Duffy is hitting just .253 with four homers and 21 RBI in 70 games.

Giants | Joe Panik set for rehab assignment

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 18:00:40 -0700

San Francisco Giants 2B Joe Panik (concussion) will start a rehab assignment with Class AAA Sacramento Tuesday, July 26. It's possible he could rejoin the club during their current home stand.

Fantasy Tip: Panik has been sidelined since the end of June, but fortunately, it looks like he's coming close to a return. The Giants could certainly use his bat in the lineup again, as they've been struggling since the All-Star break. Panik is only slashing .256/.321/.407 on the year in 70 ballgames, but he hit over .300 in each of his previous two seasons in the majors. He's worth scooping up.

Giants | Brandon Belt dropped in batting order

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 15:26:13 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt was dropped to sixth in the batting order against Cincinnati Reds SP Anthony DeSclafani Monday, July 25. OF Jarrett Parker is starting in right field and is batting third.

Fantasy Tip: The All-Star break wasn't beneficial to Belt, as he has just two hits in 33 at-bats (.061) since July 15 with 17 strikeouts. The Giants are likely trying to put less pressure on him to break the slump, and you may want to avoid him where you can until he rebounds. Parker has decent pop with five home runs and 11 RBI in 106 at-bats and profiles as an under-the-radar value pick tonight in DFS.

Giants | Jeff Samardzija absorbs sixth loss

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 14:16:45 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Jeff Samardzija fell to 1-2 over his last six starts Sunday, July 24, versus the New York Yankees, surrendering five runs on eight hits while only striking out three across 5 2/3 innings.

Fantasy Tip: Samardzija hasn't been the same since throwing a four-hitter on June 17, allowing nine homers while posting a 7.29 ERA since. His next next matchup doesn't figure to get any easier either - Friday versus the Washington Nationals and ace Max Scherzer. That start might be a good time for owners to reintroduce Samardzija to the bench, at least until he can return a more favorable result.

Giants | Joe Panik making progress

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 13:09:59 -0700

San Francisco Giants 2B Joe Panik (concussion) has turned a corner in his recovery from a concussion and is making progress, according to manager Bruce Bochy.

Fantasy Tip: Panik likely will need to go on a rehab assignment before he is cleared to play again, so he is still probably a few weeks away from returning. Panik posted solid numbers when he was healthy and will be a decent option in mixed leagues when he returns to the lineup.

Giants | Gregor Blanco sits again

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 09:09:43 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Gregor Blanco is not in the starting lineup against New York Yankees SP Nathan Eovaldi Sunday, July 24. OF Mac Williamson will start in right field and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Williamson has recorded at least one hit in five of his last seven games and has three home runs and seven RBI during that span. He can be a sleeper option for owners in daily fantasy leagues, and owners in deeper mixed leagues could consider him if he continues to see solid playing time.

Giants | Buster Posey will be DH

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 09:09:00 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey will serve as the designated hitter against New York Yankees SP Nathan Eovaldi Sunday, July 24. C Trevor Brown will start at catcher and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Posey is receiving a day off from playing in the field but will see his normal at-bats and should be starting in all leagues. Brown has recorded five hits and two RBI over the last three games and should be an attractive option in two-catcher leagues.

Giants | Hunter Strickland closes it out

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 18:05:46 -0700

San Francisco Giants RP Hunter Strickland threw a perfect inning against the New York Yankees Saturday, July 23, to pick up his second save of the season.

Fantasy Tip: The game went 12 innings, and closer Santiago Casilla had already thrown two scoreless frames. Strickland can be left on the waiver wire for now, but keep his name in mind if something happens to Casilla.
