Chris Dominguez went 1-for-2 with a home run, two RBI and a walk in the Giants loss to the Padres on Sunday.
The home run was his first of his career and the two RBIs were as well. Through four big league games he is hitting .200. There is no fantasy value here as he is not their everyday left fielder. Analyst: Colby Conway View Profile
Ryan Vogelsong dropped to 8-12 after allowing four runs (two earned) on four hits and a walk with five strikeouts over five innings in a loss to the Padres on Sunday.
Vogelsong labored through five innings today. He needed 100 pitches (65 for strikes) to get through five innings of work. He received the loss in today's outing. Vogelsong will take an 8-12 record with a 3.96 ERA in what figures to be his final start of the regular season later next week. Analyst: Colby Conway View Profile
Hunter Pence went 1-for-4 with a solo home run during the Giants' 3-2 loss to the Padres on Saturday.
Pence is now slashing .288/.342/.463 with 20 home runs, 73 RBI, 105 runs scored and 13 stolen bases over 622 at-bats this season. He remains one of the better outfield options to deploy in starting lineups this year and beyond while contributing in all five major categories. Analyst: Matthew Beck View Profile
Yusmiero Petit fell to 5-5 after he gave up three runs (two earned) on four hits and three walks with seven strikeouts over 5.1 innings against the Padres on Saturday.
Despite allowing only two earned runs on Saturday night, Petit is now the owner of a .500 record to go along with his 3.63 ERA and 1.01 WHIP over 111.2 innings between the bullpen and the starting rotation. Considering his production as been sporadic this season, it would be wise to avoid using him when he takes on the Padres on Thursday. Analyst: Matthew Beck View Profile
Giants manager Bruce Bochy rated the playing status of center fielder Angel Pagan and first baseman-left fielder Michael Morse as "questionable," due to their respective injuries, for the upcoming series against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Keep that in mind when you're looking to set your lineups for the final week of the season. Both have been out long enough that you obviously have your contingency plan in place. Plan on using it again for the final week as neither Pagan nor Morse figure to play a full week. Analyst: Howard Bender View Profile
Michael Morse (oblique) is sore after playing on Friday.
Friday was Morse's first game for the month of Septembers, a 15-game absence. He struck out in each of his two at-bats before leaving the game and just didn't look comfortable at the plate. He'll take Saturday off, remain day-to-day, and hopefully get another few opportunities to play over the final week of the season. Analyst: Howard Bender View Profile
Angel Pagan is not in the Giants starting lineup on Saturday.
The shouldn't come as a shock as Pagan has been out lately with a back issue. He returned to the lineup Friday only to be replaced pretty early on. He is day-to-day. Analyst: Howard Bender View Profile
Pagan's been dealing with back issues, so he'll get the night off Saturday to try to heal up. He should be back in the lineup tomorrow. In his absence, Juan Perez will man center field and bat 8th. Analyst: Ben Diamond View Profile
