Giants' Brandon Crawford: Strong spring showcase
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crawford had a .391/.440/.565 slash line with one double, one home run and one stolen base in nine games before spring training was suspended.

The 33-year-old is set to start at shortstop again for the Giants in 2020, as he's appeared in at least 143 games in each of the past eight seasons. Crawford will look for a rebound season once play resumes after posting a 74 wRC+ last year, the worst mark since his debut campaign in 2011.

Giants' Brandon Crawford: Returns to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crawford (illness) is in the lineup for Monday's Cactus League game against Arizona, playing shortstop and leading off.

Crawford missed the first few games of spring training as he dealt with an illness, but he'll be able to make his return to the lineup Monday. The 33-year-old is likely the favorite to resume his starting role at shortstop to open the regular season.

Giants' Brandon Crawford: Battling illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crawford is dealing with an illness and isn't starting Saturday's Cactus League opener against the Dodgers, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

The veteran shortstop's 2020 spring debut will wait a few days as he recovers from the ailment. Crawford still figures to join the lineup sometime in the next week.

Giants' Brandon Crawford: Out of lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crawford is not starting Saturday against the Dodgers.

Crawford has just a single hit in his last six games. Mauricio Dubon slides to shortstop in his absence, with Donovan Solano (calf) starting at second base.

Giants' Brandon Crawford: On bench Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crawford is not in Thursday's lineup against the Rockies.

Crawford will head to the bench for Thursday's series finale as the Giants stack righties against left-hander Kyle Freeland. Mauricio Dubon is covering shortstop in his place, with Cristhian Adames starting at second base.

September 19, 2019 11:08 AM
Giants' Brandon Crawford: Sitting Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crawford is not in Thursday's lineup against the Red Sox.

He is hitting .275 with one home run, 10 strikeouts and 10 walks in 51 at-bats this month. Mauricio Dubon will start at shortstop while Cristhian Adames starts at second base.

Giants' Brandon Crawford: Drives in two Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crawford went 3-for-6 with a double and a pair of RBI in Tuesday's extra-innings win over Boston.

Crawford was one of four Giants to reach base at least three times in an exciting back-and-forth contest against an interleague foe. The 32-year-old's season has been nothing short of a disaster (.234/.311/.361 through 139 games), but the shortstop has been showing a little life at the plate with eight hits and five walks over his last five starts.

Giants' Brandon Crawford: Idle versus lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crawford is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Dodgers, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

Crawford will unsurprisingly take a seat in the series finale with the Dodgers bringing lefty Julio Urias to the hill. Mauricio Dubon slides over from second base to replace Crawford at shortstop, opening up a spot at the keystone for Donovan Solano.

September 6, 2019 06:52 PM
Giants' Brandon Crawford: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crawford is not in the lineup Friday against the Dodgers, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

Crawford won't be asked to face a difficult lefty in Clayton Kershaw. Mauricio Dubon will slide to shortstop in his absence, with Donovan Solano starting at second base.

Giants' Brandon Crawford: Cranks three-run homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crawford went 1-for-4 with a walk, a home run, three RBI and three runs scored in Wednesday's 9-8 victory over the Cardinals.

Crawford got a bump up to fifth in the order with Alex Dickerson getting the night off and less-experienced additions (Jaylin Davis and Corban Joseph) making their San Francisco debuts. The move proved beneficial for the slumping shortstop, who provided a homer and three RBI after tallying just one and seven respectively through the entire month of August. Even with the Giants sliding out of contention, Crawford and his .229/.299/.363 slash line continue to see regular playing time.

Giants' Brandon Crawford: Out as expected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crawford is not in the lineup Saturday against the Padres.

As expected, Crawford will get the day off with Mauricio Dubon getting the start at shortstop against lefty Joey Lucchesi in his stead. While the veteran infielder has struggled at the dish this season (.232/.302/.363 through 474 plate appearances), his defense has kept him in the lineup close to everyday.

Giants' Brandon Crawford: Set for a breather Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crawford should be in line for a day off with Mauricio Dubon expected to start at shortstop Saturday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Crawford went 1-for-4 with a double in Friday's win over the Padres, but it appears that he will retreat to the bench with a southpaw slated to take the mound Saturday. The 32-year-old's production has fallen off a cliff this season (.232/.302/.363 over 474 plate appearances), but his plus defense is apparently enough to warrant near-everyday playing time for manager Bruce Bochy. Dubon is making his first start at shortstop this season, but the rookie figures to see most of his playing time at second base.

Giants' Brandon Crawford: Three hits Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crawford went 3-for-4 (all singles) in Monday's 6-4 loss to the Diamondbacks.

Crawford is batting just .236 through 120 games, so it may come as a bit of a surprise to hear that this was his fourth game with three or more hits this year. Despite all of his struggles, the veteran shortstop stuck in the lineup against a southpaw for the second consecutive contest. Manager Bruce Bochy continues to play Crawford on a near-everyday basis even with two right-handed options who can play short on the 25-man roster (Donovan Solano and Abiatal Avelino).

Giants' Brandon Crawford: Starts versus lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crawford batted ninth and went 1-for-4 with a run scored in Sunday's 5-4 win over Oakland.

Crawford stuck in the lineup against a southpaw, but that could have been a result of manager Bruce Bochy's unofficial rule of rewarding players who homer with a start the next day. The 32-year-old needs to pick things up at the plate or run risk of losing playing time not only against southpaws, but also starts against righties in favor of hot-hitting Donovan Solano. Crawford's line sits at .231/.301/.364, making him virtually unusable in most formats this season.

August 25, 2019 03:16 AM
Giants' Brandon Crawford: Swats 10th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crawford went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, an RBI single and two runs scored in Saturday's 10-5 win over the Athletics.

Crawford's solo shot accounted for the Giants' first run in the contest. He would go on to plate Kevin Pillar in the eighth inning before scoring on Stephen Vogt's three-run homer. The shortstop has picked it up lately, going 8-for-21 with five runs scored and three RBI in his last six games. Overall, he's slashing .230/.302/.365 with 10 homers, 51 RBI and 50 runs scored in 118 games this season.

August 20, 2019 05:08 PM
Giants' Brandon Crawford: Out of Tuesday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crawford is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Cubs.

He was swinging a hot bat around the All-Star break, but has predictably cooled off, hitting .173 with zero home runs in 52 August at-bats. Abiatal Avelino will start at shortstop and hit eighth.

Giants' Brandon Crawford: Replaced by pinch hitter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crawford went 0-for-2 before he was removed as part of a double switch in Friday's extra-innings win over Arizona.

Crawford started against a righty as he usually does, but he was taken out after just two at-bats. His eventual replacement, Donovan Solano (2-for-3), outperformed Crawford yet again, and the latter may have to start showing more at the plate to avoid losing more than just starts against lefties to the backup infielder. Crawford is currently slashing an anemic .222/.296/.348 this season.

Giants' Brandon Crawford: Sitting vs. southpaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crawford is not in the lineup Thursday against the Diamondbacks, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

Crawford will give way to Donovan Solano at shortstop in this one as the Giants stack right-handed bats against lefty Alex Young. Since the start of August, Crawford is slashing just .146/.222/.171 in 12 games.

Giants' Brandon Crawford: Not in Sunday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crawford is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Rockies, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.

Crawford suffered a jammed shoulder Thursday but was in the lineup the last two contests, going 1-for-9 with one run scored and two RBI. Donovan Solano will start at shortstop and bat leadoff Sunday in his stead.

August 2, 2019 06:04 PM
Giants' Brandon Crawford: In Friday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crawford (shoulder) remains in the lineup Friday against the Rockies, Amy Gutierrez of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Crawford left Friday's game against the Phillies with a jammed shoulder, but he'll return without missing a start. He'll bat fifth and serve as the shortstop Saturday.
