San Francisco Giants

NL West


Brandon Belt went 0-for-5 with three strikeouts in Monday's 7-6 win over the Rockies.

Fantasy Impact: It was not a pretty night for Belt at the plate on Monday. The veteran is now 6-for-26 (.231) in the month of May as he looks to pick up the pace on what has been a relatively mediocre season up to this point.

Mike Yastrzemski went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and an RBI sacrifice fly in Monday's 7-6 win over the Rockies.

Fantasy Impact: Yastrzemski came up clutch for the Giants on Monday, hitting his third long ball of the season off of Daniel Bard to put the team in front for good. The outfielder has struggled as of late, hitting .167 in his last seven games, but maybe this power jolt can turn things aorund.

Thairo Estrada went 2-for-3 with two singles, a walk and a run scored in Monday's 7-6 win over the Rockies.

Fantasy Impact: Estrada has been a relatively consistent bat towards the bottom of San Francisco's offense as of late, hitting .280 with seven runs scored in his last seven games. The infielder could hold some fantasy value, but he won't impress in any particular categories.

Darin Ruf went 2-for-3 with a double, a single and two runs scored in Monday's 7-6 win over the Rockies.

Fantasy Impact: Ruf is quietly turning around a terrible start to the season, as the slugger is now hitting .361 in May and is 8-for-15 (.533) in his last seven games. If the 35-year-old can keep it rolling and his power can come along, he could develop into a solid fantasy bat.

Curt Casali went 3-for-4 with a solo home run, a three-run bomb, a single and three total runs scored in Monday's 7-6 win over the Rockies.

Fantasy Impact: Casali put the Giants' offense on his back on Monday, accounting for the majority of the team's offense out of the nine spot in the lineup. The catcher is slowly starting to distance himself from Joey Bart, which could mean more at-bats are on the way.

Camilo Doval walked one and struck out one in a scoreless bottom of the ninth to tally the save in Monday's 7-6 win over the Rockies.

Fantasy Impact: 12 of Doval's 14 appearances this season have been scoreless, an obvious great sign for San Francisco's closer. The righthander hasn't gotten the save opportunities to vault him into the elite fantasy tier, but he is remains a very solid option.

Alex Wood allowed three runs on six hits while striking out five in Monday's 7-6 win over the Rockies.

Fantasy Impact: Wood was a bit shaky on Monday, but that's somewhat expected for most pitchers at Coors Field. The lefty will continue to be a solid, low-end fantasy starter going forward.

Joey Bart went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in Sunday's 15-6 loss to the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: Maybe a home run off of a veteran first baseman is what Bart needed to get his season turned around. The catcher has been very underwhelming, hitting .185 through 65 at-bats this season. He should not be rostered in redraft fantasy leagues.

Luis Gonzalez went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run and a single in Sunday's 15-6 loss to the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: Gonzalez's second big fly of the year came in the ninth inning of a blowout off of Albert Pujols. Although a homer of this nature may be less impressive, it counts the same in fantasy and in the box score. The outfielder has been a very pleasant surprise for the Giants and is now hitting .421 in his last seven games.

Category: Game Recaps


Carlos Rodon allowed eight runs on 10 hits while striking out three in 3 2/3 innings of Sunday's 15-6 loss to the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: It was an outing to forget for Rodon, who has looked like one of the best arms in baseball up to this point in the season. The lefthander will look to bounce back against the Padres on Saturday.

Category: Game Recaps


Joc Pederson went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Sunday's 15-6 loss to the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: Pederson produced the only runs of the night for San Francisco that did not come off of Albert Pujols on the mound. After a hot start, the slugger has come to a screeching halt and is hitting .065 in the month of May. Unless his power picks back up soon, he can likely be left off fantasy rosters.

LaMonte Wade Jr. went 2-for-5 with two singles in Saturday's 4-0 loss to the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: Offense was tough to come by for the Giants on Saturday, but Wade was able to produce with his second multi-hit performance of the season. The outfielder has been very good since making his 2022 debut, hitting .353 with an OPS of 1.007 in 17 at-bats. The sample size is far too small to believe that this is the rate he will hit at for the rest of the season, but he may be a sneaky good fantasy player going forward.

Jakob Junis allowed two runs on six hits while striking out three in Saturday's 4-0 loss to the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: Junis was solid on Saturday, but he received no run support and was thus handed his first loss of the year. The righthander has been very consistent in his four starts this season, never allowing more than two runs in an outing. It's too early to start rostering him, but he is definitely a name to monitor going forward.

Mauricio Dubon traded to Astros

Fantasy Impact: With both Jose Altuve and Jeremy Pena dealing with minor injuries, the Astros needed some infield depth, which they get with Dubon. The utility man was slashing just .239/.245/.391, but he can play multiple infield positions, as well as the outfield. Expect him to get a spot start occasionally but he's unlikely to have much value outside of deeper AL-only leagues.

Brandon Crawford went 1-for-5 with an RBI single and a run scored in Friday's 8-2 win over the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: Crawford has now tallied a hit in three straight games as he looks to find some consistency at the plate, which he hasn't had much of in 2022. If the shortstop can get into a groove, he has proven that he can still produce at a fantasy-relevant level.

Evan Longoria went 1-for-1 with a pinch-hit, two-RBI double in Friday's 8-2 win over the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: Longoria's double on Friday was his first hit of the year after he went 0-for-5 in his season debut on Wednesday. The veteran showed in 2021 that he can still produce in terms of fantasy, but he's still on a "wait and see" basis in 2022.

Logan Webb allowed one run on three hits and three walks while striking out one in six innings of Friday's 8-2 win over the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: Webb was far from dominant on Friday, but he got the job done and tallied his fifth win of the season. It's clear he isn't going to be a fantasy stud this season, especially with him striking out just 28 batters in 41 1/3 innings this year, but he can still provide great value in the win and ERA categories for fantasy teams.

Alex Cobb allowed one run on three hits and two walks while striking out six in Wednesday's 7-1 win over the Rockies.

Fantasy Impact: Cobb looked solid on Wednesday for his second start in a row allowing two runs or less through five or more innings. The 34-year-old has shown enough strikeout stuff this season to be considered on a matchup-by-matchup basis in fantasy.

Jake McGee was placed on the 15-day IL on Wednesday due to lower back tightness. (Source: Alex Pavlovic on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: McGee has given up runs over his last four appearances, and his ERA has ballooned to 9.58 on the season. Perhaps his sore back is partially responsible for his recent performance. McGee hasn't recorded a save or hold since April 20 and is probably not worth holding onto in most fantasy leagues.

Austin Slater went 2-for-4 with a triple, a single, a walk and two runs scored in Monday's 8-5 win over the Rockies.

Fantasy Impact: Slater isn't an everyday starter in San Francisco's lineup, but he has been a solid producer in his limited opportunities. The 29-year-old is hitting .275 with an OPS of .844 in 51 at-bats this season. He won't be a fantasy option until he sees a more consistent role in the Giants offense.
