San Francisco Giants

NL West

Fantasy Impact: Peralta will be the second left-hander in the Giants bullpen for 2020. He will be an option for the Giants in the middle innings next year, forcing him out of fantasy relevance for the time being.

Donovan Solano and the San Fransico Giants have agreed to a one-year, $1.375 million contract, per Bob Nightengale. (Source: Bob Nightengale on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Solano will return to the supplementary role he previously held in 2019. He was productive in that role hitting .330 with four home runs in 215 at-bats, although his BABIP (.409) would suggest a little regression is coming. Due to his low volume role, Solano is not expected to be a reliable fantasy option to start the 2020 season.

The Giants have decided to non-tender left-handed pitcher Tyler Anderson. Anderson was claimed off waivers by the Giants on Wednesday (10/30/2019). (Source: Andrew Baggarly on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Anderson pitched 20 innings in 2019 to the tune of an 11.76 ERA. Over the last three seasons (282 innings), he has averaged 8.96 strikeouts per nine and 3.5 walks per nine. Given that he will be moving on from the Rockies and Coors Field, Anderson's numbers could improve in 2020, but he is far from being considered a draftable option to this point outside of deep dynasty formats.

Outfielder Kevin Pillar is surprisingly being non-tendered by the Giants, meaning he will be a free agent. (Source: Jon Heyman on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Pillar had a solid 2019 for a Giants team that lost 85 games, so he is a surprise non-tender. With a number of teams looking for center fielders this offseason, Pillar should have a number of suitors after a season that saw him hit .259 with 83 runs scored, 21 home runs, 88 RBI, and 14 stolen bases over 161 games.

Per Ken Rosenthal, Alex Dickerson has avoided arbitration with the San Francisco Giants by signing a one-year deal worth $925,000. (Source: Ken Rosenthal on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: In 56 games with the Giants last season, Dickerson had a slash line of .290/.351/.880, hitting six home runs and driving in 26 runs. Even with his potential power output, Dickerson will return to the middle of a lineup that plays half of their games in a ballpark that suppresses left-handed power. But if Dickerson can continue his trend of success into next year, he could hit 15+ home runs, making him a potentially sneaky bargain at the back end of drafts for 2020.

The San Francisco Giants have hired Gabe Kapler to be their manager. (Source: San Francisco Giants on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Kapler, who was fired by the Phillies during the off-season, managed the team to a 161-163 record the past two years. He will replace Bruce Bochy as the Giants skipper and will become just the team’s fourth manager since 1993.

Logan Webb fell to 2-3 on Saturday versus the Dodgers, holding Los Angeles to two runs on six hits over six innings pitched.

Fantasy Impact: Webb struck out five and walked one. His only major mistake was allowing a homer to Max Muncy. The 22-year-old finishes the season with a 5.22 ERA spanning eight starts. However, he allowed just three runs over his final 12 innings.

Johnny Cueto took the loss on Friday against the Dodgers, giving up five runs on five hits in just two innings pitched.

Fantasy Impact: Cueto struck out two and walked one. The killer for him was allowing three homers, including back-to-back solo shots to Cody Bellinger and Corey Seager. Cueto returned from Tommy John this month and finished with a 5.06 ERA. He showed some promise in his earlier starts, however, and is a name to remember for 2020.

Mauricio Dubon went 3-for-4 with a homer, a double, and two runs scored in the Giants' 8-3 win over the Rockies on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: The homer was his fourth of the season. The 25-year-old infielder has shown some promise at the big league level this year, batting .280 with four homers and three steals in just 27 games. Dubon will likely wind up as a sleeper in 2020 fantasy drafts.

Mike Yastrzemski hit his 21st homer of the year in Thursday's 8-3 win over the Rockies.

Fantasy Impact: "Baby Yaz" came off the bench in this one and finished 2-for-3 with the homer, a double, two RBI, and two runs scored. The 28-year-old has had a phenomenal season, posting an .860 OPS with the aforementioned 21 homers.

Tyler Beede is set to undergo an MRI after leaving Thursday's start with an oblique injury. (Source: Alex Pavlovic on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This was going to be Beede's last start of the season anyway but hopefully this injury doesn't cost him too much of his off-season. Beede was dealing before exiting, tossing 3 1/3 perfect innings while striking out seven. He'll pitch the 2019 season with a 5.08 ERA spanning 22 starts.

Jeff Samardzija received a no-decision on Wednesday versus Colorado, throwing six scoreless innings while striking out five.

Fantasy Impact: Samardzija was able to work around five hits and a walk in this one, which lowered his ERA to 3.52 on the year. The 34-year-old finishes the season with an 11-12 record and well under a strikeout per inning, but his ERA and WHIP were more than useful in fantasy leagues.

Evan Longoria hit his 20th homer of the year in the Giants' 16-inning loss to the Rockies on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Longoria finished the night 1-for-4 with two walks and two RBI. He is now batting .255 with 20 homers and a .768 OPS this year. It's nice to see he still has some pop in his bat but 20 homers isn't what it used to be with everyone in the league hitting for power these days. He won't be an enticing fantasy option entering 2020.

Madison Bumgarner received a no-decision on Tuesday versus Colorado, allowing four runs on six hits over seven innings pitched.

Fantasy Impact: Bumgarner struck out nine and walked two as the Giants went on to lose a wild one in 16 innings. The lefty is 9-9 with a 3.90 ERA in 34 starts this season. He'll make his final start of the year in the Giants' regular season finale on Sunday against the Dodgers.

Will Smith struck out two in a scoreless ninth to preserve the 4-1 Giants' win over the Braves on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Smith allowed just a harmless single to pick up his 34th save of the year. The lefty closer dealt with some back inflammation the other week but is good to go for the final week of the regular season.

Category: Game Recaps

Brandon Crawford went 3-for-6 with a double, a walk, and two RBI in the Giants' 7-6 win over the Red Sox on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: This one took 15 innings to complete. Crawford has been kind of hot lately, but is still batting just .234 with a .672 OPS for the season.

Brandon Belt went 3-for-4 with two doubles as the Giants beat the Marlins 1-0 on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: This was Belt's second three-hit game of the week, but he still doesn't offer much excitement when it comes to fantasy upside. For the year he is batting .235 with a .745 OPS.

Category: Game Recaps

Shaun Anderson earned another save on Friday versus the Marlins, throwing a scoreless ninth to secure the 1-0 win.

Fantasy Impact: Anderson also got a save earlier in the week as he continues to fill in for Will Smith (back inflammation). Smith is expected back this weekend, but fantasy players who desperately need saves can add Anderson to see how this all plays out.

Stephen Vogt went 2-for-4 with a homer, four RBI, and two runs scored in the Giants' 5-4 win over the Pirates on Tuesday night.

Fantasy Impact: Vogt was the majority of San Francisco's offense in this one. He has hit very well as Buster Posey's backup this season, batting .274 with an .842 OPS.

Category: Game Recaps

Dereck Rodriguez fell to 5-9 on Sunday in Los Angeles, allowing five runs (two earned) on three hits over 4 2/3 innings.

Fantasy Impact: Rodriguez gave up two homers in the outing, which was admittedly a tough matchup. He now owns a 5.09 ERA on the year and won't be a usable fantasy option here in the season's final month.
