Giants' Mark Melancon: Not receiving save chances
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Melancon has yet to be used in a save situation this season.

Manager Bruce Bochy said in mid-April that Melancon would get some saves, but he's yet to be given the chance. The veteran's ERA was unblemished through his first 10 outings, but he's allowed three runs in his last two appearances. It may take an injury to current closer Will Smith (or a midseason trade) for Melancon to stake a claim for the role, though Sam Dyson (who has one save) could still be ahead of him.

Giants' Mark Melancon: Option for saves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Melancon is expected to get some chances in save situations this season, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

While the Giants' primary closer remains Will Smith, manager Bruce Bochy noted that Melancon could get some chances in the ninth inning as the season unfolds. He's been stellar for the Giants in a setup role so far in 2019 and has yet to allow a run over 10 innings of work.

Giants' Mark Melancon: Tosses clean inning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Melancon struck out a batter without allowing a base runner over a scoreless inning in Tuesday's 7-2 win over San Diego.

Melancon has gotten off to a strong start in 2019, posting a 0.00 ERA and 0.88 WHIP through his first six appearances. The 34-year-old only has two strikeouts over that span, but the slow start in punchouts can't be attributed to diminished stuff, as his cutter is averaging a healthy 92.1 mph. Melancon will look to continue re-establishing himself from the setup role after losing the majority of the last two seasons to injury.

Giants' Mark Melancon: Serves up two homers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Melanie allowed two homers in Thursday's spring training game, both coming on 92 mph fastballs to the opposite field, Susan Slusser of The San Francisco Chronicle reports.

The two homers are equal to the entire total he allowed with the Giants in 39 innings last season. The good news is that his velocity matched his average fastball from last season.

Giants' Mark Melancon: Mentioned in closer conversation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Bruce Bochy said Melancon could be in the mix for saves to begin the 2019 season, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Bochy wouldn't commit to a closer, naming Melancon along with Sam Dyson and Will Smith, who finished the 2018 campaign as the team's endgamer, as possible options. While Melancon showed improvement in his second year with the Giants, posting a 3.23 ERA across 39 innings, Smith still seems like the safer bet to open the 2019 season back in the ninth inning.
