Giants' Mark Melancon: Pitches in back-to-back games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Melancon gave up a hit over a scoreless inning in Friday's 6-3 loss to Arizona.

This outing was noteworthy because it was the first time Melancon has pitched in back-to-back games since returning from an elbow injury June 3. The former All-Star closer has been used as a setup man this season, and that is unlikely to change following the success Will Smith has had as the club's primary closing option. Friday's outing lowered Melancon's ERA to 3.32 over 21.2 innings, but his 6.2 K/9 and 1.48 WHIP are both the worst of his career.

Giants' Mark Melancon: Appears fine after being struck by comebacker
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Melancon was struck in the foot with a comebacker Friday, but he appears to be fine after staying in the game to finish his frame, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Melancon's lone hit over his scoreless inning was the result of a Marcus Semien comebacker that struck him in foot and ricocheted into left field for a double. The veteran reliever stayed in the game after trainers checked on him, and he appears to have avoided injury for the time being. Melancon was unlikely to be available Saturday anyways, as he has yet to pitch in consecutive contests since returning from an elbow injury June 3. The 33-year-old owns a 2.25 ERA with 11 strikeouts and one save over 16 innings this season.

Giants' Mark Melancon: Can't finish job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Melancon recorded two outs in the ninth inning but allowed three hits and an earned run prior to being pulled Sunday against the Diamondbacks.

Melancon was called upon to begin the ninth inning with the Giants up 9-5. He retired the first two batters without incident, but then surrendered three consecutive singles, the last of which drove in a run and ended his outing. While Sam Dyson quickly lost hold of the closer role, this outing won't give manager Bruce Bochy any confidence that Melancon should be trusted in the ninth inning. Will Smith has recorded the Giants' last two saves, but Tony Watson could also earn some opportunities going forward.

Giants' Mark Melancon: Not ready to pitch on consecutive days
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Bruce Bochy said he's unsure when Melancon will be ready to pitch on consecutive days but will communicate with the pitcher to work on a plan to build up his durability, Kerry Crowley of the Bay Area News Group reports.

The former All-Star has not lived up to his giant contract with the Giants, mostly due to significant injuries, including a pronator issue that required stem-cell injection treatment. He snagged a save Thursday night but will remain part of a crowded Giants closing committee that also likely includes Sam Dyson (the primary option), Tony Watson and Will Smith, at minimum, with Reyes Moronta possibly factoring in as well. Melancon is worth a pickup in deeper leagues, as long as those snagging him consider him more of a "quarter-closer" than an undisputed main man.

Giants' Mark Melancon: Records first save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Melancon allowed a hit and struck out one to earn his first save of the season Thursday against the Padres.

Melancon earned his first save since June 20, 2017 after replacing Madison Bumgarner to begin the ninth inning. It's now unclear who the Giants' primary closer will be as Sam Dyson -- the named closer when Hunter Strickland (hand) went to the disabled list-- was likely unavailable for Thursday's game after pitching in three consecutive games. Given his contract and prior experience as an elite closer, signs point to Melancon getting more opportunities going forward. However, he'll have to prove his durability as he has yet to pitch in consecutive games this season.
