Latest Update Ishikawa hits walk-off home run Thu Oct, 16, 11:40 PM
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.
All of Ishikawa's damage came on the first game-ending home run in NLCS history, a three-run homer against Michael Wacha. Ishikawa is just the fourth player to hit his first game-ending home run in the postseason.Analyst: Steve Pimental
Ishikawa is loving this opportunity to come back to the Giants and potentially win another ring with them. His three-run double in the first innings helped push the Giants up 4-0 and he's now 6-for-21 (.286) with a pair of doubles and four RBI. He should continue to see regular time in left field for as far as the Giants go.Analyst: Howard Bender
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
