Giants' George Kontos: To be used in higher-leverage situations
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kontos will be used in later innings against lefty-heavy portions of opponents' lineups, CSN Bay Area reports.

Manager Bruce Bochy said that the veteran pitcher will be used in the seventh inning of games, a larger role than he has assumed for the Giants in the past. The right-hander has fairly even career splits against both righties and lefties, making him an unconventional option to replace the injured Will Smith (elbow) as the club's "left-handed" setup man. Kontos excelled in his first test, setting down David Peralta, Paul Goldschmidt and Jake Lamb in a clean inning Tuesday. The increased role should result in a slight uptick in hold opportunities.

Giants' George Kontos: Picks up win Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kontos pitched a clean sixth inning and picked up the win in Saturday's spring training win over the Cubs.

The Giants brought Kontos back on a one-year deal to serve as a middle reliever in 2017. He has posted ERAs of 2.33 and 2.53 in 2015 and 2016 respectively, but his strikeout rate has been under 6.0 K/9 in both seasons, which isn't desirable for a ratio-boosting middle reliever in even deep formats.

Giants' George Kontos: Avoids arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kontos agreed to a one-year deal with the Giants on Friday, avoiding arbitration.

The terms of the agreement were not announced. He figures to pitch in middle relief this season for the Giants and won't offer much fantasy value.

Giants' George Kontos: Tosses three clean innings in long relief
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Kontos tossed three clean innings in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Orioles. He walked two and struck out one.

Kontos was called upon in a long-relief role after starter Matt Cain could only go four innings Friday. He has been stellar as a middle reliever for the Giants this season (2.11 ERA), but it was surprising that manager Bruce Bochy let him go for three innings (39 pitches). While the ERA is a nice surprise, Kontos doesn't strike out enough batters to be relevant in most formats.

Giants' George Kontos: Consistent in recent relief appearances
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Kontos has given up just three earned runs and two walks over his last 11 relief appearances.

The five-year vet now boasts a 2.86 ERA along with 20 strikeouts over 28.1 innings pitched this season. However, the return of Sergio Romo (forearm) has booted Kontos from his set-up role and Kontos is unlikely to see any spontaneous save opportunities in the near future.
