Giants' Jeff Samardzija: Seven scoreless innings Thursday versus Padres
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Samardzija was dominant in Thursday's win over the Padres, striking out nine and walking none while allowing four hits over seven scoreless innings.

The right-hander turned in one of his finest outings of the season Thursday, pounding the strike zone at a 68 percent clip while tying his season high in strikeouts, which he had not reached since early May. Samardzija is ending the regular season on a high note, as he has now tossed three quality starts in the last four tries, lowering his ERA to 3.83. He will make his final start Thursday at home against the Rockies.

Giants' Jeff Samardzija: Effective in Saturday start versus Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Samardzija was effective in Saturday's start versus the Cardinals, allowing just one run on five hits and four walks with four strikeouts across 6.2 strong innings. He did not factor into the decision.

Samardzija's only detrimental mistake came on a solo home run allowed to Brandon Moss in the first inning, but he was able to escape the danger the rest of the way despite a steady stream of baserunners. Samardzija has shown flashes of his potential with these types of starts this season, but he will need to display some prolonged consistency to reestablish himself as a must-own fantasy asset. He will have the opportunity to build off of Saturday's strong showing Thursday in San Diego.

Giants' Jeff Samardzija: Takes 10th loss against Padres
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Samardzija (11-10) allowed four runs on eight hits and a walk with six strikeouts over six innings in Monday's loss to San Diego.

Samardzija allowed more than three earned runs in a start for the first time since he allowed five over seven innings August 5 against the Nationals. Still, since August, Samardzija owns a 44:15 K:BB with a 3.44 ERA over 49.2 innings of work, and if that's the Samardzija who shows up over the season's final weeks, his fantasy owners and Giants fans alike will be very happy.

Giants' Jeff Samardzija: Strikes out nine in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Samardzija allowed two runs on four hits and a walk with nine strikeouts over seven innings in Tuesday's no-decision against the Rockies.

Samardzija has now thrown quality starts in four of his last five outings, with the one exception coming at Wrigley Field, one of the toughest draws this season. The nine strikeouts tied a season high for Samardzija, who last accomplished the feat in consecutive outings May 3 and May 8, the latter also against the Rockies. Still, he has just 146 strikeouts in 184.2 innings, his second straight sub-8.0 K/9 season after he reached that mark every year from 2011 through 2014.

Giants' Jeff Samardzija: Lasts only four innings against old Cubs mates
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Samardzija pitched just four innings Thursday against the Cubs, allowing three runs on five hits and three walks. He didn't receive a decision in the eventual 5-4 loss.

He came in on a streak of three straight quality starts, but few pitchers have enjoyed much success against this Chicago lineup. In two career starts against the Cubs -- who drafted him in 2006 and went on to employ him in the majors from 2008 to 2014 -- Samardzija has been blown up for nine runs in 10 innings. He somehow managed to throw 87 pitches in four frames Thursday, leading to the early exit. Fantasy owners who drafted Samardzija thinking that the move to San Francisco would stimulate him have not been rewarded for their faith, as his 4.06 ERA and 1.22 WHIP aren't very helpful fantasy stats, while his strikeout rate has continued falling. The righty's now at 6.75 K/9, well shy of his glory days from 2011 to 2013, when he averaged more than a whiff per inning.
