Kieschnick is 3 for 8 since returning to the Diamondbacks Monday and 3 for 15 in six games overall.

Diamondbacks claim Roger Kieschnick


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Kieschnic hit for decent power in the minors, but had no home runs in 84 at-bats last season.

Roger Kieschnick impressing in early showing


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/7/2013) Giants outfielder Roger Kieschnick has been able to earn consistent playing time early since his callup with his strong play, and he started and had multiple hits for the second game in a row Tuesday against the Brewers. 

"I think the most impressive thing about Roger right now is he seems comfortable up here," manager Bruce Bochy told MLB.com. "He's not nervous, he's not in awe of anything. He looks like he's swinging the bat the way he was when he came up here from Fresno."

Kieschnick finished Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Brewers with a 2-for-4 line, while striking out once. Kieschnick has appeared in six of eight games since being recalled, starting five and hitting .381 in 21 at-bats. 


Roger Kieschnick worth NL-only consideration


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/6/2013) Giants outfielder Roger Kieschnick is in a pretty nice situation right now. The 26-year-old outfielder is hitting .353 in his first five games, playing for a team that is 10 1/2 games out of the second wild card spot and going nowhere. 

His main roadblock to more playing time is Jeff Francoeur, a nine-year veteran who is hitting .234 in 15 games with the team. And even if they do platoon the rest of the way, Kieschnick has the better part of it, getting to face the right-handed pitchers. 

Kieschnick showed off a big bat in the minors, with double-digit home runs in four of his five minor league seasons. In 2012, Kieschnick hit 15 home runs and 14 doubles over just 234 at-bats (he missed time with a broken hand). Before his call-up this season, he had 13 home runs and 27 doubles in 374 at-bats. 

He may be stuck in a time-share with Francoeur the rest of the way, but that's probably going to be a worst-case scenario. I'm expecting a .260-.270 average, with 7-9 home runs, 8-10 doubles, and maybe a few steals mixed in the rest of the way. If something happens to Francoeur, those numbers could go up, and Kieschnick could find his way into deeper mixed league relevance. 


Roger Kieschnick makes immediate impact


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2013) Giants outfielder Roger Kieschnick did not wait long to make his presence felt, as he drove in two runs in his first major league game Wednesday against the Phillies.

Kieschnick went 2 for 5 in the game with a pair of RBI singles, one in the first and one in the third innings.  


Roger Kieschnick will make debut Wednesday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2013) Giants outfielder Roger Kieschnick is slated to make his first big-league start Wednesday, manager Bruce Bochy told the San Francisco Chronicle Tuesday. The 26-year-old hit .273 with 13 homers over 422 plate appearances with Triple-A Fresno. 

Giants recalling Brett Pill, Roger Kieschnick


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2013) The Giants will recall outfielder Roger Kieschnick and first baseman Brett Pill from Triple-A Fresno before Tuesday's game at Philadelphia, the San Francisco Chronicle reports Monday. No corresponding roster moves have been announced at this time. 

Kieschnick, 26, is batting .273 with 13 homers over 422 plate appearances with Fresno. He had previously been considered to not be ready to hit major league pitching by team management. 

Pill has already been up in the big leagues several times. He's been held back with the Giants giving everyday playing time to Brandon Belt. Pill is batting .344 with Fresno over 276 at-bats with 18 homers and 79 RBI. 


Roger Kieschnick is a deep dynasty sleeper


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/20/2013) With the Giants' outfield lacking punch, minor leaguer Roger Kieschnick may not be long for the majors. The 26-year-old is hitting .313 with five home runs and 26 RBI in 147 at-bats this year at Triple-A, following up a 2012 in which he hit .295 with a .942 OPS and 15 home runs in 234 at-bats. 

Kieschnick isn't a big-name prospect, and some of his power can be attributed to the general hitter-friendliness of the PCL, but with Gregor Blanco and Andres Torres hitting just one home run between them over 187 at-bats -- and Brandon Belt entrenched at first base -- it wouldn't be crazy to think Kieschnick could at least get a shot at some at-bats at some point this season.

In an NL-only dynasty league with deep rosters and rampant speculation, Kieschnick might be worth a minor league spot, based on his big bat and decent average the last couple years. 


Trio of cut Giants could be back before long


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/15/2013) Among the cuts the Giants made Friday were the young trio of Roger Kieschnick, Heath Hembree and Gary Brown. Those Fantasy players casually familair with prospect lists may recognize Brown -- he was the team's first-round pick in the 2010 draft and could be the long-term answer in center field. This season seems to be the make-or-break one for Brown, who took a step back in power and average in 2012 after a promising 2011.

Hembree and Kieschnick, although lesser-known, could find their way to San Francisco sooner. Hembree struggled a little in 2012 as he jumped from High-A to Triple-A and battled an elbow strain, but his 4.19 ERA belied a solid 1.16 WHIP, and he struck out a batter per inning. Although there's little room for him in the closer mix at the major-league level, Hembree, who throws in the mid-90s, could eventually join the bullpen as a low-ratio, high-strikeout middle reliever.

Kieschnick is a big-swinging outfielder who hit .295 with 15 home runs in 234 at-bats last year. He missed three months after fracturing his left shoulder against an outfield wall trying to make a catch on a home run. With the Giants probably juggling Gregor Blanco and Andres Torres in left this season, it's not unlikely to think if they're hurting for runs, and Kieschnick gets off to a hot start, he could get the call. This is pure deep-league talk, but if I'm picking an NL-only reserve (or even a dynasty league reserve), I'd probably go for Kieschnick first out of these three players. 


Giants ship 20 players to minors


by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com
(3/15/2013) The San Francisco Giants completed another round of roster cuts Friday, optioning pitchers Dan Otero, Jake Dunning, Chris Heston and Sandy Rosario, shortstops Ehire Adrianza and Nick Noonan and outfielders Roger Kieschnick and Juan Perez to Triple-A Fresno. Pitcher Edwin Escobar was sent to Class A San Jose. The team also reassigned Brett Bochy, Boof Bonser, Steve Edlefsen, Heath Hembree, Michael Kickham, Mitch Lively, Shane Loux, Ricky Oropesa, Adam Duvall, Brock Bond and Gary Brown to its minor-league camp.
