Giants' Will Smith: Close to throwing off flat ground
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Bruce Bochy said that Smith (elbow) is a day or two away from throwing off flat ground, CSN Bay Area reports.

Smith was experiencing elbow inflammation last week, but the MRI results came back negative and the Giants appear to be playing it safe with their left-handed setup man. The club has already set a plan for him to throw six times during this WBC-extended spring training, so barring any setbacks, Smith should be ready for Opening Day.

Giants' Matt Cain: Goes two innings in spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cain gave up two runs (one earned) on three hits over two innings in his spring training debut against the Cubs on Saturday.

Cain will technically have to earn the Giants' fifth rotation spot this spring, but a clean bill of health and decent production should do the trick. The former All-Star has not pitched over 100 innings or had an ERA below four since 2013, but he does have experience and a massive contract working in his favor. Just because the Giants are considering giving him a rotation spot doesn't mean fantasy owners should be following suit, at least until he shows some semblance of his former self during the regular season.

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' Denard Span: Collects hit in Cactus League debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Span batted leadoff and went 1-for-2 in his spring training debut against the Cubs on Saturday.

Span returned to his usual spot atop the Giants' lineup, a place he will likely spend the majority of the season against right-handed pitchers. The soon-to-be 33-year-old had a down year in 2016, slashing .266/.331/.381 in 637 plate appearances. He did hit a career-high 11 homers, but his speed took a hit, stealing just 12 bags in 19 attempts. Span will be a in position to score a good amount of runs atop the Giants' lineup, but he will need to have a bounce-back year in terms of batting average and steals before he can be considered a standard league fantasy asset again.

Giants' Joe Panik: Collects hit in spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Panik batted second and went 1-for-2 with a run in his spring training debut Friday.

Panik is coming off a down year, slashing .239/.315/.379 in an injury-shortened season, though he did hit 10 homers and maintained an isolated power rating (.140) near what he posted in 2015. He got off to a cold start, and when he began heating up with the weather, he was struck in the head with a fastball and had to go on the disabled list with a concussion in June. Panik maintained his high contact rate (90 percent) all season, but his line-drive percentage dipped and his groundball and flyball rates both increased, which is the recipe for a lowered batting average. He enters 2017 healthy and will look to return to his consistent hitting ways. He won't be on fantasy radars outside of deeper formats, but he is a player that could help with batting average and runs scored if he can return to form.
