Conor Gillaspie hit a walkoff RBI double in the bottom of the ninth inning as the Giants beat the Phillies 8-7 on Sunday afternoon in San Francisco.

Gillaspie drove in Ramiro Pena, who had slapped a one-out double a couple pitches before. Gillaspie also had a single and he got hit by a pitch with the bases loaded in the bottom of the third, finishing the day 2-for-4 with two big RBI. He will continue to get regular playing time while Matt Duffy recovers from an Achilles strain and is worth consideration in NL-only fantasy formats.

Johnny Cueto surrendered six earned runs over six innings Sunday in the Giants' win over the Phillies.

It was his second-worst outing in a Giants uniform, but San Francisco's offense exploded for 16 hits and eight runs to salvage the victory and take two of three games in the weekend series. Cueto gave up eight hits, including two doubles and an Odubel Herrera home run. He watched his ERA rise from 2.06 to 2.42.

Joe Panik is not in the Giants' lineup Sunday.

It's a regular day off. Ramiro Pena will handle second base.
Jun 26 - 1:10 PM

Madison Bumgarner turned in a quality start but lost to the Phillies on Saturday, giving up three runs in 6 1/3 innings.

He allowed only five hits but a two-run homer by Cameron Rupp proved his undoing. Bumgarner fanned seven and walked only one. He has a magnificent 1.99 ERA and 122/29 K/BB ratio in 108 1/3 innings. He is in the running for a Cy Young award and is a lock to make the All Star team. He will take his 8-4 record into a rivalry matchup with Oakland on Thursday.

Joe Panik was the only Giants batter with multiple hits on Saturday, finishing 2-for-4 with a run scored.

Panik raised his batting average to .259 with the two singles. He has scored 45 runs to provide his owners with good value in that category, but he doesn't do enough in the other categories to make himself worthy of starting for a good fantasy team.

Matt Cain (hamstring) threw about 20 pitches off the bullpen mound on Friday.

Cain will do the same thing on Sunday before the Giants determine the next step. If the club wants to play it safe, he could throw on the side or pitch batting practice, but he could be cleared for a minor league rehab assignment. There should be more clarity on his status soon. The veteran right-hander has been sidelined since June 13 with a strained right hamstring.

Kelby Tomlinson (thumb) is about a week to 10 days away from a minor league rehab assignment.

Tomlinson landed on the disabled list earlier this month with a sprained left thumb and Giants manager Bruce Bochy said he still needs time for recovery and strengthening before ramping up baseball activity. His return now appears likely to fall around the All-Star break.
Jun 25 - 10:04 AM

Sergio Romo (elbow) could make his next minor league rehab appearance on Saturday or Sunday.

There was some talk of Romo rejoining the Giants this weekend, but he gave up two runs on three hits over one-third of an inning during his most recent rehab appearance on Thursday. The Giants want to see better results before bringing him back. Romo has been sidelined since April 10 with a strained flexor tendon.
Jun 25 - 9:25 AM

Jake Peavy improved to 4-6 after allowing two runs in seven innings Friday against the Phillies.

Since falling to 1-5 with an 8.21 ERA on May 20, Peavy is 3-1 with a 1.91 ERA in his last six starts. It's not enough to make him a quality pickup in mixed leagues again, but the Giants will certainly take it.
Jun 25 - 2:07 AM

Angel Pagan went 3-for-4 with two RBI and a steal versus the Phillies on Friday.

Pagan is hitting .297 with a homer and nine RBI in nine games since coming off the disabled list. He'll continue to get as much playing time as his body can handle while Hunter Pence is sidelined.
Jun 25 - 2:03 AM

Buster Posey is not in Friday's lineup against the Phillies.

It's just a normal day of rest. Trevor Brown will start behind the plate and catch Jake Peavy.
Jun 24 - 6:23 PM

Matt Cain (hamstring) won't return from the disabled list when first eligible next Wednesday.

Cain's right hamstring strain is improving, but the Giants want him to make at least one rehab start this time after he skipped one following the initial injury. That means Albert Suarez will make at least one more start.
Jun 24 - 12:28 PM

Sergio Romo (elbow) could be activated from the disabled list this weekend.

Romo tossed a scoreless inning for Triple-A Sacramento on Wednesday and will pitch again Thursday night. After that, the Giants will decide whether to activate him or have Romo make another rehab appearance. Romo has been sidelined for the last two months with a strained flexor tendon.
Jun 23 - 5:51 PM

Mac Williamson went 3-for-4 with a solo homer and two RBI to lead the Giants to a 5-3 win over the Pirates on Thursday.

Williamson hit third today in his second start since being recalled Tuesday, but he's not going to log much time against righties, leaving him without fantasy value outside of deep NL-only leagues. Overall, he's 9-for-37 with two homers this year.
Jun 23 - 4:28 PM

Albert Suarez allowed three runs -- two earned -- over five innings Thursday in a win over the Pirates.

Suarez gave up four hits, walked two and struck out six while again filling in for Matt Cain. He's probably going to make one more start next week, but Cain isn't expected to remain sidelined for too much longer.
