Buster Posey belted a solo-home run to go with a walk in four plate appearances of Sunday's loss to the Dodgers.

Posey closed out a pitiful weekend series, where he had a lone hit in nine at-bats, on a high-note by at least providing his owners with a home run. It was his second in six games and 12th of the season, unfortunately the RBI was just his first since his previous home run back on July 22nd.

Jake Peavy suffered the loss in his first start with the Giants as he allowed four runs (three earned) with two walks and five strikeouts over six innings against the Dodgers Sunday.

At least for one start, fantasy owners should cut Peavy some slack seeing as he pitched a day after being traded from Boston to San Fran. The odds are in the new Giants pitcher's favor that he should improve, if for anything because he will be fortunate enough to face the Mets on Saturday.

Brandon Belt (concussion) has not been cleared for baseball work, but is seeing a second doctor on Sunday. 

Brandon Belt has been on the 7-day concussion disabled list since July 21, when he was hit in the face during batting practice. He is still suffering from concussion symptoms and will see a specialist regarding his injury. Expect Adam Duvall to continue to get the lion's share of starts at first base until Belt returns.

Giants hope to know Monday or Tuesday if Angel Pagan can start a rehab assignment.

Angel Pagan has been on the disabled list since June 14 with a back injury. He started hitting soft pitch three days ago. The club is hoping to get a more definitive answer on his rehab schedule this week. The Giants center fielder was .307 in 241 at bats with eleven stolen bases when he went down.

Pablo Sandoval was removed from Saturday's game with tightness in his back and leg.

After having a slow start to his season Sandoval has really turned it on hitting .278 with 46 runs, 12 home runs and 44 RBI. Sandoval owners should stick with Fantasy Alarm to see if Sandoval will be in the Giants starting lineup for tonight's game.

Giants optioned pitcher George Kontos to Triple-A Fresno after Saturday's game.

This move was likely to make room for Jake Peavy on the 25 man roster. Kontos on the season was 3-0 with a 3.00 ERA and 1.19 ERA out of the Giants bullpen.

Matt Cain is not improving and is likely to undergo further testing on his injured elbow.

Some reports stated that Cain had significant bone chips in his elbow which would likely shut him down for a long period of time if not the rest of the season. Given that the Giants went and sent their #2 prospect to the Red Sox for Jake Peavy on Saturday it looks as if the Giants are preparing to move on without Cain.

Ryan Vogelsong got off to a hot start, but it all fell apart after a Hunter Pence errant play in the fourth inning, as he fell to 5-8 with the loss to the Dodgers Saturday.

Vogelsong has now lost five of his last six starts despite having a July ERA of 3.90. Overall he is 5-8 with a 3.94 ERA and 1.35 WHIP. His next start will come on Friday when the Giants are in NY to face the Mets.
