Giants' Austin Slater: Not starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slater is out of the lineup Sunday against the Padres, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Giants' Austin Slater: Takes seat Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slater isn't starting Friday's game against San Diego, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Giants' Austin Slater: Out of Wednesday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slater is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Rockies, Mark W. Sanchez of KNBR 680 San Francisco reports.

With Mike Tauchman coming over from New York in a trade Tuesday, Slater will occasionally sit against righties going forward, as he is in this one with German Marquez starting for Colorado. He could get further squeezed for at-bats once Mike Yastrzemski (oblique) is healthy.

Giants' Austin Slater: Another steal Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slater went 1-for-5 with a stolen base in Tuesday's 7-5 extra-inning loss to the Rockies.

Slater continues to struggle at the plate, but he can be a menace for opponents when he's on the basepaths. He's racked up five stolen bases and has yet to get caught. The outfielder has a .230/.313/.365 slash line with two home runs, seven RBI and six runs scored across 83 plate appearances. He should see regular playing time in right field while Mike Yastrzemski (oblique) is out, although the Giants' Tuesday trade for Mike Tauchman from the Yankees could complicate Slater's role when all outfielders are healthy.

Giants' Austin Slater: Swipes two bags in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slater went 0-for-3 with a walk and two stolen bases in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Marlins.

Slater had an awful day at the plate after going hitless with three strikeouts but did manage to lead off the bottom of the first with a walk and ended up stealing a pair of bases before the inning concluded. The 28-year-old has stolen four bases this season, which is already half the number he tallied in 2020. He needs to pick it up a bit at the plate, however, as he's slashing .219/.315/.375 with two home runs, seven RBI and five runs scored while striking out at a career-high rate of 35.6 percent.

Giants' Austin Slater: Late addition to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slater was added to the Giants' updated lineup for Saturday's game against the Marlins, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

Slater was originally scheduled for a day off, but the Giants were forced to shake things up after scratching Brandon Crawford due to quadriceps tightness. Mauricio Dubon will move in to Crawford's shortstop spot, with Slater entering the lineup in Dubon's vacated spot in center. He'll bat seventh.

Slater got aboard with a single in the second inning, then stole second. The outfielder has two homers, two steals, six RBI and four runs scored with a .239/.340/.435 slash line across 53 plate appearances.

Giants' Austin Slater: On bench Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slater is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Reds, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Slater started the first seven games of the season but has now been on the bench for three of the last four. His previous two off days were reportedly related to foot discomfort, though he returned to the lineup Monday. It's unclear whether the issue is still bothering him.

Giants' Austin Slater: Returns to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slater (foot) is starting Monday against the Reds, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Giants' Austin Slater: Managing foot discomfort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slater has been out of the lineup for the past two games due to foot discomfort, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Slater hit a ball off his foot several days ago and was unavailable off the bench Saturday. Manager Gabe Kapler revealed that Slater was available to pinch hit if needed Sunday, so he appears to be trending in the right direction. However, it's not yet clear whether Slater will be able to return to the lineup for Monday's series opener against Cincinnati.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giants' Austin Slater: Steals base in extra-inning win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slater went 0-for-3 with two walks and a stolen base in Wednesday's 3-2 extra-inning win over the Padres.

One of Slater's walks came in the third inning, and he added his first steal of the year soon after. The 28-year-old outfielder is seeing an everyday role -- he's slashing .174/.269/.304 with a homer, one RBI, one run scored and a stolen base. Expect him to hit near the top of the order versus southpaws, while he'll typically shift to the bottom third of the lineup against right-handed pitchers.

Giants' Austin Slater: Settling into everyday role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slater will start in center field and bat leadoff Wednesday against the Padres, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

With southpaw Blake Snell on the hill for San Diego, Slater will once again get a turn in the table-setting role, as has been the case in the Giants' previous three games this season in which they've opposed left-handed starting pitchers. Slater has also been featured in the starting nine in both of the Giants' games to date against right-handed pitchers, albeit while batting in a bottom-third spot in the order. The 28-year-old thus appears to have at least temporarily captured a full-time role in the outfield, with Mauricio Dubon losing out on some reps as a result.

Giants' Austin Slater: Knocks homer Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slater went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in Thursday's 8-7 extra-inning loss to the Mariners.

Slater hit leadoff for the Giants. His homer came in the fifth inning, extending the Giants' lead to 5-0 at the time. The 28-year-old outfielder is expected to see the short side of a platoon in left field this season, and Alex Dickerson pinch hit for him in the ninth inning. Slater provides a bit of speed, as he went 8-for-9 in stolen bases in 2020 while slashing .282/.408/.506 across 104 plate appearances with five homers, 18 runs scored and seven RBI.
