Giants' Austin Slater: Takes over in right field
Slater batted fifth and went 2-for-4 with a double, an RBI and a run scored in Friday's 7-0 win over the Mets.
The Giants officially dealt Andrew McCutchen to the Yankees on Friday, a move that should open up regular playing time for Slater in right field. The 25-year-old hasn't provided much pop through 52 games (.277/.371/.343), but his solid placement in the batting order and contributions in the stolen-base category (13 combined steals over 105 games in the minors and majors this year) could appeal to deep-league owners.
