Eduardo Nunez Homers in Second Straight Game

San Francisco Giants infielder/outfielder Eduardo Nunez homered again on Monday, going 2-for-5 with two runs scored. The sudden power output is a welcomed surprise for Nunez owners, as he mainly makes an impact with his speed and batting average. The versatile Nunez has been great over the last month, hitting .316 with an .809 OPS and... Read More

Jeff Samardzija Strikes Out 10 in Dominant Start

San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Jeff Samardzija struck out 10 batters in his start on Monday, allowing just one earned run over 7 2/3 innings against the Brewers. This is the start that Samardzija owners have been waiting for, as he flat out shoved against a high-powered offensive team in Milwaukee. Samardzija has an insane 59... Read More

Matt Moore Lasts Just Four Innings

San Francisco Giants starter Matt Moore gave up four earned runs over four innings against the Phillies on Sunday. He struck out one and walked two. It was an awful start for Moore, who has had an abysmal year. Moore now has a 5.22 ERA and shouldn't be owned in any standard mixed leagues. He's... Read More

Hunter Pence Activated From Disabled List

San Francisco Giants outfielder Hunter Pence was activated from the 10-day disabled list on Sunday. He did not start Sunday's game but later entered and had an at-bat. Pence missed over two weeks with a strained left hamstring, so the 34-year-old may be eased into action before returning to everyday playing time. Pence has been incredibly... Read More

Austin Slater Called Up By Giants

Outfielder Austin Slater was called up by the San Francisco Giants and will join the team for their series in Philadelphia. Slater was batting a strong .322/.381/.460 at Triple-A, good for a 123 wRC+. The 24-year-old isn't a top prospect by any means, but he is expected to see immediate playing time in the Giants...

Jeff Samardzija Lasts Four Innings Against Nats

San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Jeff Samardzija lasted just four innings against the Nationals on Tuesday, allowing three earned runs on nine hits.

Orlando Calixte Goes 2-for-5 From Leadoff Spot

San Francisco Giants left fielder Orlando Calixte lead off for the Giants on Tuesday, going 2-for-5 with two RBI. Calixte won't be an everyday regular for the Giants, so even after leading off, he's not worth a pickup in mixed leagues. Calixte was batting .287 in Triple-A with eight homers and 11 steals, but the 25-year-old... Read More

Eduardo Nunez Could Require DL Stint

Matt Moore Fares Well Against Nats Despite Loss

San Francisco Giants second baseman Joe Panik homered and went 3-for-4 against the Cubs on Monday out of the leadoff spot. Panik is regularly the Giants two-hole hitter, but with outfielder Denard Span out of the lineup, he moved up to the leadoff spot.
