• Giants remove eight from camp

    News: The Giants have assigned the following players to minor league camp: SP Craig Clark, Rafael Cova, RP Steve Edlefsen, RP Eric Hacker, RP Osiris Matos, SP Clayton Tanner, RP Dan Turpen and RP Craig Whitaker.
    Analysis: These players are all just organizational depth and can continue to be ignored in all Fantasy formats.
  • Giants announce slew of spring invites

    News: The San Francisco Giants have announced the following players will be invited to spring training as non-roster invitees: outfielders Wendell Fairley, Roger Kieschnick and Thomas Neal; infielders Ehire Adrianza, Brandon Crawford and Nicholas Noonan; catchers Steve Holm, Johnny Monell, Hector Sanchez and Jackson Williams; and pitchers Denny Bautista, Santiago Casilla, Craig Clark, Rafael Cova, Steven Edlefsen, Eric Hacker, Osiris Matos, Tony F. Pena, Felix Romero, Clayton Tanner, Daniel Turpen and Craig Whitaker.
    Analysis: Noonan, Adrianza, Kieschnick, Neal, Fairley, Williams, Tanner and Matos are among the Giants' best prospects, so consider them as long-term keeper stashees. We don't expect any of these players to make the team out of spring training, though, so ignore them on Draft Day for the most part.
  • Mets send RH RP Cova to minors

    News: The Mets assigned RHP Philip Humber, RHP Matt Lindstrom, RHP Rafael Cova, RHP Jeremy Hill, RHP Jason Scobie, C Jesus Flores, C Drew Butera, C Andy Wilson, C Aaron Hathaway and 1B Brett Harper to their minor league camp.
    Analysis: Cova could be a midseason call-up to help out in the Mets bullpen this summer, but his role will be too limited to help even in the deepest of NL-only leagues. Ignore him on Draft Day.
