Latest Update Ishikawa homers in Giants win Sat Sep, 13, 01:49 AM
Owns a good left-handed stroke, some power and defensive acumen at first base. Is a good athlete and a big target at first, with soft hands.
Flaws: : Needs to prove capable of hitting for average against left-handers with consistency at the big-league level. Also needs to be more consistent, in general.
Ishikawa is now slashing .276/.323/.448 with three home runs and 18 RBI through 87 at-bats this season. Unless he gains a full-time job int he near future, he belongs on the waiver wire. Analyst: Matthew Beck
After a ton of just pinch-hitting, Ishikawa finally drew a starts after Buster Posey was a late scratch.He definitely delivered in this one, posting his first multi-hit game of the season. He's not long for a starting job and his at-bats are so infrequent that he couldn't possibly help your fantasy team out. There is no need to even think about using him.Analyst: Howard Bender
The Giants are bringing up some offensive support after being shut out in two of the last three games and being held to just five runs over their last five. Neither Ishikawa nor Perez seem like viable fantasy option though. If either of them were any sort of offensive push, they'd have been up by now.Analyst: Howard Bender
