Camilo Doval delivered a flawless outing, securing a save in the Giants' 3-1 victory over the Marlins.

Fantasy Impact: He threw 13 pitches in a clean inning, allowing no hits or walks and striking out one batter. This performance could be a turning point for Doval, who entered the game with a concerning 4.50 ERA and a 1.50 WHIP from his previous appearances. His impressive 14.4 K/9 ratio continues to make him a tantalizing option for strikeouts, but his high ERA and WHIP have been points of frustration for fantasy managers

Keaton Winn turned in a solid performance on Wednesday, allowing just one earned run on four hits and a walk while striking out four over six innings in the Giants' 3-1 victory over the Marlins.

Fantasy Impact: This outing marked a significant improvement for Winn, who entered the game with a bloated 5.06 ERA and zero wins despite a decent 1.19 WHIP. His ability to limit the Marlins to minimal baserunners and only one run helped lower his ERA to 4.09 and secure his first win of the season. Winn's performance could be a sign of stabilization, suggesting a potential upward trend in his fantasy value.

Jordan Hicks allowed two earned runs over five innings in the Giants' 6-3 loss to the Marlins on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Hicks surrendered three hits and three walks while striking out five. This outing marks a slight deviation from his stellar early-season form. Despite the setback, Hicks's underlying metrics, including a 3.17 FIP and a strong 3.00 strikeout-to-walk ratio, suggest he could bounce back quickly. Fantasy managers should monitor his next few appearances closely but remain cautiously optimistic about his ability to maintain a solid performance level.

Kyle Harrison earned a win Monday, allowing three earned runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out two over six innings as the Giants edged the Marlins 4-3.

Fantasy Impact: Despite not showcasing dominant strikeout abilities in this outing, Harrison managed to navigate through Miami's lineup effectively enough to secure his second win of the season. His performance today slightly improved his ERA to 4.70 and WHIP to 1.26. Harrison's ability to limit walks and maintain a decent ERA might offer some value in deeper leagues, though his limited strikeout potential caps his overall fantasy ceiling.

Blake Snell allowed seven runs on six hits over four innings on Sunday against the Rays.

Fantasy Impact: Snell posted his second straight poor performance to open his tenure with the Giants. He'll look to bounce back against Arizona.

Matt Chapman went 2-for-4 with a home run, three runs scored, and one RBI in the Giants' 11-2 rout of the Rays.

Fantasy Impact: This performance, highlighted by his third homer of the season, offers a glimmer of hope for fantasy managers who might have been concerned by his sluggish .213 batting average to this point. Despite the low average, Chapman's power stroke seems to be intact, and his ability to score runs and drive in runs when connecting with the ball remains valuable. Fantasy managers should practice patience with Chapman in hopes the 30-year-old can find consistency at the plate moving forward.

Jorge Soler went 1-for-4 with a home run and an RBI in the Giants' 11-2 victory over the Rays.

Fantasy Impact: His solo home run contributed to the offensive onslaught, though it was just one of his 11 hits this season. Despite the homer, Soler's batting average remains a paltry .208 through 15 games, highlighting his struggle at the plate this year. His power is evident with three home runs, but his high strikeout rate and low BABIP suggest he's still finding his rhythm. Fantasy managers will continue to hope the slugger can turn his early-season struggles at the plate around and provide more consistent power and run production in lineups in all formats.

Thairo Estrada had a standout performance in Saturday's game, going 3-for-4 with two home runs, three RBIs, and three runs scored in the Giants' 11-2 rout of the Rays.

Fantasy Impact: This game marks a significant uptick in Estrada's power hitting, doubling his season home run total. Despite a sluggish start to the season with a .224 batting average, the 28-year-old has started to turn things around at the plate, recording hits in four of his last five games for the Giants. The infielder will look to continue to work towards providing manager Bob Melvin with another reliable bat in a re-tooled San Francisco lineup as the season progresses.

Logan Webb delivered a strong performance, allowing just one earned run on six hits and one walk while striking out four over seven innings in Saturday's 11-2 win against the Rays.

Fantasy Impact: This outing was a much-needed boost for Webb, allowing less than three runs for the second time in three starts on the mound this season for the Giants. The right-hander remains a viable starting option for fantasy managers in all formats while leading a revamped San Francisco rotation as the season continues.

Fantasy Impact: Jefferies allowed nine runs (five earned) on nine hits in his two innings of work on Sunday. The Giants should provide a further update on his status after he is evaluated.

The Giants optioned Marco Luciano to Triple-A Sacramento.

Fantasy Impact: There was some thought that Luciano could open the season as the starting shortstop for the Giants, but it will be Nick Ahmed instead. Luciano should get called up at some point this season, potentially early in the year.
