Giants' Mark Melancon: Considering surgery to repair elbow
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Melancon said Friday that he is considering surgery to fix an elbow issue that has been bothering him since 2012, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Melancon said the problem wasn't the same elbow injury that kept him off the field from June 27 through August 12 this year. But with the Giants wholly out of the National League playoff picture, this might be the perfect time for Melancon to undergo surgery and still be ready to go by the start of the 2018 campaign. Either way, don't expect Melancon to contribute much in San Francisco's bullpen down the stretch; he hasn't seen a save opportunity since June 20.

Giants' Mark Melancon: Converts second hold Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Melancon gave up one hit over a scoreless inning while picking up a hold in Thursday's 5-4 win over the Phillies.

Manager Bruce Bochy continues to ease Melancon back into action in a middle relief role after it was reported that his elbow isn't fully back to full strength. The 32-year-old has fired three scoreless innings while picking up two holds since being activated off the disabled. The Giants want to make sure their big-ticket signing this past offseason is completely healthy before handing him the keys to the ninth, but Sam Dyson's success in the role has made the process move slower than fantasy owners had hoped.

Giants' Denard Span: Steals surge continues Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Span went 1-for-5 with a stolen base and a run scored in Thursday's win over the Phillies.

The veteran outfielder has gone 3-for-4 on stolen base attempts in his last seven contests after providing just five steals over his previous 87 games. Span's renaissance on the basepaths may be a result of some good-natured ribbing he received from teammate Buster Posey last week, who -- at the time -- had matched the former speedster's stolen base total, according to Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area. Whether or not that is the real reason for the 30-year-old's recent jolt of speed is unclear, but the fact that Span is stealing bases again gives him a boost in value down the stretch.

Giants' Sam Dyson: Notches 10th save Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dyson picked up his 10th save of the season Thursday, notching one strikeout and issuing one walk over 15 pitches to finish off the Phillies.

Dyson entered the game with very little margin for error nursing a one-run lead against a scrappy Phillies club that had already hit two home runs in the game. He responded by holding the Phillies without a hit, marking his fourth consecutive hitless appearance. Mark Melancon, who picked up the hold Thursday, is due to reclaim the closer's role in the near future, so this may have been one of Dyson's final cracks at a save this season.

Giants' Jeff Samardzija: Picks up win Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Samardzija (8-12) notched his eighth win of the season Thursday against the Phillies, holding the visitors to four earned runs over 6.0 innings while notching six strikeouts.

It wasn't an overly impressive outing from Samardzija as he was touched up for a pair of home runs, but the Giants' bats bailed him out and scratched five runs across a tough Aaron Nola. Samardzija has been reliably average for the bulk of the season, going six-or-more innings in 21 of his 25 starts but also allowing three-or-more runs in 18 of those outings. Samardzija's best characteristic this year has been his ability to limit walks, as evidenced by his 1.3 BB/9 rate and 6.96 K:BB ratio entering Thursday. He's lined up to face the Brewers' Jimmy Nelson in Milwaukee on Tuesday for his next start.
