Giants' Austin Slater: Launches two homers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slater went 2-for-5 with two home runs Saturday against the Dodgers.

Slater thrived as the leadoff hitter in this game, and he went yard twice -- both against Clayton Kershaw. The 27-year-old outfielder is now riding a three-game hitting streak, and he has hit safely in seven of his last 10 contests.

Giants' Austin Slater: Two hits in starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slater went 2-for-4 with a stolen base Wednesday in the Giants' 7-6 win over the Padres.

Healthy again after missing two games with a bruised right hip, Slater cracked the lineup against a right-hander (Chris Paddack), a reward for drawing three walks in his first start of the season back on July 25. The righty-hitting Slater was up to the challenge, providing two hits out of the No. 8 spot in the lineup. He should continue to see the bulk of his opportunities versus lefties, but Slater could end up settling into more of a full-time role if either Jaylin Davis or Hunter Pence -- who have combined to go 2-for-29 to begin the season -- fail to break out of their early slumps.

Giants' Austin Slater: Rejoins lineup Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slater (hip) is starting in right field and batting eighth Wednesday against Padres, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

The 27-year-old was off to a strong start in his first appearance of the season with one run scored and three walks before leaving Saturday's game with a hip injury, but he'll return to the lineup after a two-game absence. Slater had a .750 OPS in 68 games last season and should see occasional starts in the outfield in 2020.

Giants' Austin Slater: Available for Tuesday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slater (hip) will be available off the bench for Tuesday's game against the Padres, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Slater has been nursing a bruised hip over the past several days, and although he isn't in the lineup Tuesday, manager Gabe Kapler said that he'll be an option off the bench. Kapler said that Slater likely could have rejoined the lineup for the series opener against the Padres, but he elected to give him an extra day of rest as a precaution.

Giants' Austin Slater: Nursing bruised hip
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slater exited Saturday's win over the Dodgers with a right hip contusion and is considered day-to-day, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

The 27-year-old sustained the injury during a collision with the outfield wall. He went 0-for-1 with a run scored and three walks as the leadoff hitter prior to leaving the game. Slater hasn't been ruled out for Sunday's series finale against the Dodgers, but with a scheduled off day Monday the team could play it cautiously to give him an extra day of rest.

Giants' Austin Slater: May not make Opening Day roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slater's remaining minor-league option could be a hurdle to making the season-opening roster, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

The 27-year-old appeared in 68 games during the second half of the season for the Giants last year, but his remaining minor-league option plus the offseason additions of Wilmer Flores, Hunter Pence and Billy Hamilton leave him with no real roster security. Slater primarily played right field in 2019 and had a .238/.333/.417 slash line with five home runs, though he also saw some minimal action at first base.

Giants' Austin Slater: Starts again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slater went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in Saturday's 1-0 win over the Dodgers.

Slater started in right field for the second consecutive game, this time against a right-handed starter. It appeared that the 26-year-old had fallen on the short side of a platoon with rookie Jaylin Davis after the latter started consecutive games following his callup earlier this week, but now it seems more like a timeshare between the two while Alex Dickerson (oblique) tries to return from injury. Slater's bat has certainly cooled off following a month-long hot streak after he was promoted July 1, as he is hitting just .225 with a 31.1 strikeout percentage over his last 40 at-bats.

Giants' Austin Slater: Homers for only run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slater went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Padres.

Slater struck early, taking Padres starter Joey Lucchesi deep in the first inning, but that would be all the Giants' offense could muster. The outfielder now has five homers, 21 RBI and 17 runs scored across 121 at-bats this year, primarily featuring off the bench in recent contests.

Giants' Austin Slater: Clubs fourth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slater went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Cubs.

He got the Giants on the board with a second-inning blast off Cole Hamels. Slater hadn't gone yard since July 12, but he's maintained a strong bat for the club despite the lack of over-the-fence power, slashing .333/.462/.548 through 16 games in August.

Giants' Austin Slater: Reaches base five times in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slater went 3-for-3 with a double, two walks, a stolen base and an RBI while scoring twice in a win over Arizona on Thursday.

Slater notched his first three-hit game of the season and also swiped his first base in the 7-0 rout. He scored the Giants' second run after taking a walk in the first inning, crossed the plate again after doubling in the fifth and knocked home the final run of the game with a single in the eighth. The 26-year-old has started the last six games in right field, hitting .333 (6-for-18) over that stretch. Overall, he is slashing .284/.404/.516 with three homers in 114 plate appearances this season.

Giants' Austin Slater: Ropes triple in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slater went 1-for-4 with a triple in Friday's 9-6 loss to the Phillies.

Slater started in right field and moved up to second in the order with Brandon Belt getting the night off. The 26-year-old is slashing .272/.385/.519 in 30 games since getting the call to the majors at the beginning of July. Slater hasn't been receiving everyday playing time, but he has seen the bulk of starts in right field while Alex Dickerson (oblique) mends on the injured list.

Giants' Austin Slater: Laces RBI triple
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slater went 1-for-2 with an RBI triple and a walk in Friday's 5-4 loss to the Rockies.

His game-tying three-bagger came in the fifth inning against Rockies starter Peter Lambert, but Slater was later out on a fielder's choice. He was lifted for pinch hitter Joe Panik in the ninth inning as the Giants unsuccessfully tried to overcome a one-run deficit. The 26-year-old Slater has a .261/.363/.522 line with three homers, two triples, 14 RBI and eight runs scored in 25 games this season and may be in line for more consistent playing time with Alex Dickerson (oblique) on the shelf.

Giants' Austin Slater: Likely replacement for Dickerson
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slater will start in right field and bat eighth Thursday against the Phillies, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Slater will stick in the lineup for a fourth consecutive game and should remain a fixture in the starting nine for at least the next week and a half after the Giants placed Alex Dickerson (oblique) on the 10-day injured list Thursday. After posting a .965 OPS at Triple-A Sacramento this season, Slater hasn't noticed much of a decline in his performance since making the move back to the majors a month ago. He slashed an impressive .270/.370/.524 with three home runs and 13 RBI in 73 plate appearances in July, but a 28.8 percent strikeout rate could make it difficult for him to maintain as respectable of a batting average moving forward.

Giants' Austin Slater: Earns start vs. righty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slater started in right field and went 2-for-5 with a double, a walk and a run scored in Wednesday's 11-8 win over the Rockies.

Slater got back into the starting lineup after getting a day off Tuesday, this time at the expense of Alex Dickerson. The 26-year-old has been on fire since being called up July 1 (.344/.417/.813), but so have the rest of the Giants' regular rotation of outfielders. Dickerson and Mike Yastrzemski -- Slater's main competition for playing time at the corners -- have the advantage of being lefty bats, but as we saw Wednesday against a right-handed starter, manager Bruce Bochy appears willing to ignore handedness to get Slater into the lineup. The utility man can also play in the infield, so semi-regular playing could remain a reality so long as his bat stays hot.

July 16, 2019 06:32 PM
Giants' Austin Slater: Not in lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slater is not starting Tuesday against the Rockies, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.

Slater owns a .333/.400/.852 slash line in 10 games so far this season. He'll sit in favor of Mike Yastrzemski in right field for Tuesday's contest.

July 15, 2019 07:08 PM
Giants' Austin Slater: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slater (illness) is starting in right field and batting second in Game 2 of Monday's doubleheader against Colorado, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.

Slater sat out of the first half of the twin bill, but he did enter the contest as a pinch hitter. He'll return to the starting lineup for the nightcap after getting over a fever.

July 16, 2019 12:12 AM
Giants' Austin Slater: Remains on bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slater (illness) remains on the bench for the first game of Monday's doubleheader against the Rockies.

Slater sat Sunday due to a fever, though he did appear off the bench. He was in the lineup the Giants originally released for Monday's game but was scratched in favor of Alex Dickerson soon after. He remains in contention for the nightcap.

July 15, 2019 05:48 AM
Giants' Austin Slater: Enters game off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slater (illness) was subbed in mid-game and went 0-for-3 in Sunday's 8-3 win over Milwaukee.

The utility man was initially scratched due to an illness, but he was forced into action after Evan Longoria (foot) suffered an injury. Slater was able to stick it out for the final four innings of Sunday's contest, which bodes well for his availability for at least one game of Monday's twin billing against the Rockies.

Giants' Austin Slater: Out with fever
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slater is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Brewers due to a fever, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Slater came off the bench Saturday and went 2-for-2 with a run scored and an RBI double, but he won't start the series finale while battling a fever. Manager Bruce Bochy believes the 26-year-old will be able to return to action Monday.

July 13, 2019 11:00 PM
Giants' Austin Slater: On bench Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slater is not starting Saturday against the Brewers, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

Slater started the last two games and four of the last seven in right field. He's gone 7-for-18 with three homers in six games for the Giants overall this season. Mike Yastrzemski will start in right field Saturday.
