Pillar went 1-for-4 with an RBI, a stolen base and a run scored in Tuesday's comeback win over the Braves. Pillar's early-season power binge came to an expected halt. The 30-year-old has just one long ball in 17 May contests (.203/.227/.313), but he has provided 10 runs and three steals to help keep his deep-league status afloat.
Pillar isn't in Friday's starting lineup against the Reds, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Pillar will get the night off after collecting a pair of hits in Thursday's series finale against the Rockies. Steven Duggar draws the start in center field and is set to bat eighth.
Pillar went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's 14-4 win over the Rockies. Pillar was one of three Giants who took Antonio Senzatela deep Tuesday. The 30-year-old remains below the Mendoza Line, but he is providing enough in terms of power (six homers), speed (four steals) and defensive prowess to retain an everyday role in San Francisco.
Pillar went 1-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored in Saturday's 9-2 loss to Cincinnati. Pillar had cooled off in the power and speed department following his four-homer, three-steal 10-game stretch at the beginning of April, but he may be heating back up with a .304 batting average (7-for-23) and a homer and steal over his last six contests. Fantasy owners probably would stomach the 30-year-old's mediocre batting average considering he's on pace for a 20/20 season -- a feat only 10 players accomplished in 2018.
Pillar went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in Sunday's 11-5 loss to the Yankees. Pillar knocked a two-run single during a small Giants rally in the sixth inning and later added a solo shot in the ninth that proved to be inconsequential. While he's hitting just .222 in 81 at-bats with San Francisco, the 30-year-old has five long balls and 17 RBI during that span.
