Giants' Austin Slater: Not in lineup Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slater is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Cubs, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Slater will be held from the starting lineup for the third consecutive game -- and has now been on the bench five of the last six games -- with Hunter Pence garnering the start in left field. The 25-year-old has a .270/.391/.324 slash line in 37 at-bats this season.

Giants' Austin Slater: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slater is out of the lineup Sunday against the Cardinals, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

The Giants will clear a spot in center field for the newly recalled Steven Duggar, leaving no room in the starting nine for Slater while Gorkys Hernandez shifts over to left field. Though Slater will be on the bench Sunday, he still may stick in the lineup on a near-everyday basis, given manager Bruce Bochy's comments. According to Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic Bay Area, Bochy said that Hernandez and Duggar would likely work in a platoon in center field, which could leave left field open for Slater on most occasions. Since his June 23 promotion from Triple-A Sacramento, Slater has gone 7-for-25 with three walks, four RBI, two runs and a stolen base in 10 games.

Giants' Austin Slater: Takes over in left field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slater started in left field and went 1-for-4 in Saturday's loss to the Cardinals.

Joe Panik (groin) was placed on the disabled list Saturday, forcing Alen Hanson to move to second base and opening up a clear path to playing time in left field for Slater. The 25-year-old showed great progress in the minors prior to his recent callup (.344/.417/.564 in 53 games with Triple-A Sacramento), making him an intriguing short-term option for deep and NL-only owners over the next week.

Giants' Austin Slater: Taking infield grounders
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slater will take grounders at second and third base, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic Bay Area reports.

The Giants' offense has struggled against left-handed pitching, so the team could turn to Slater in the infield in those games if they feel confident about his defense there. The 25-year-old hasn't played second base at any level since 2015 and has just one career professional appearance at third base.

Giants' Austin Slater: Collects three hits in start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slater started in left field and went 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles and a pair of RBI in Friday's 2-1 win over Arizona.

It was just Slater's second start in six games since being recalled from the minors June 23. The 25-year-old appears to be on the short side of a platoon in left field with Alen Hanson (who started at the keystone Friday), with Hunter Pence getting the occasional start as well. If this configuration sticks, Slater won't get the playing time necessary to make a splash in most fantasy formats. The outfielder slashed a healthy .344/.417/.564 with five homers and eight steals over 223 plate appearances with Triple-A Sacramento this season, so if he does find a way to earn regular playing time at some point this year, he would be worth taking a look at.
