Giants' Jeff Samardzija: Will start Game 2 of NLDS on Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Samardzija has officially been announced as the starter for Saturday's NLDS matchup with the Cubs, Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area reports.

This move doesn't come as much of a surprise considering Madison Bumgarner wouldn't have been available until Game 3 of the series after pitching in Wednesday's Wild Card game. The fact the he posted sub-3.00 ERAs in both August and September likely played a role in manager Bruce Bochy's decision to go with the Shark over Matt Moore. A matchup against the high-powered Cubs doesn't bode well for his DFS stock, but there is some potential for strikeouts (7.39 K/9).

Giants' Jeff Samardzija: Strikes out 11, but drops final regular-season start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Samardzija (12-11) whiffed a season-high 11 while allowing just two runs on seven hits and a walk Wednesday against the Rockies, but suffered the loss.

His regular season thus ends with a 3.81 ERA and 1.20 WHIP, with two excellent months rounding out the year after a period of midseason struggles. Wednesday was the only double-digit-strikeout game of the year for Samardzija, who was a pretty consistent whiff-per-inning guy up until last season. Still, this rates as a bounce-back campaign for the veteran righty, who showed his trademark endurance while shaving more than a full point off last season's brutal 4.96 ERA.

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.
