The 36-year-old left fielder posted his first multi-hit game May 13, and it's a sight of relief for fantasy owners who rely on his bat. 13 of Holliday's 26 hits have gone for extra bases, so as soon as he becomes a more consistent threat with his bat, his numbers should go up. The two-hit performance was certainly a step in the right direction.
The reigning NL MVP has slowed down a bit in recent weeks, but he remains an absolute must-start in all fantasy formats. Harper's average sits at .245, but he's on a nice three-game hitting streak with two homers over that span. His ability to get on base is also a plus, as his .420 OBP ranks eighth in the NL.
The 29-year-old has hit safely in three of the last four games after going in an 0-for-13 mini-slump a few days ago. Bruce improved his average to .261 with eight homers and 30 RBI this season.
The 27-year-old continues to impress despite a lack of plate discipline. Duvall has brought seven runs to the plate in the last two games, and he's slugged an impressive .600 to go along with four homers and 10 RBI over the last 10 games.
Thompson was replaced in right field in the fifth inning by Yasiel Puig. His injury doesn't sound like a major concern at this time, but his availability for Sunday's series finale remains undetermined.
The reason for Thompson's removal from Saturday's game was not disclosed, but he was replaced in right field by Yasiel Puig prior to the bottom of the fifth inning. Expect an update on Thompson's status when more details become available.
Span was scratched from Saturday's lineup due to a bruised hip, but it appears that will be the extent of his absence. The Giants will confirm Span's status for Sunday's game, one way or another, when they release their starting lineup several hours prior to first pitch.
Puig will simply get the day off, and be replaced in the lineup by Trayce Thompson. He has recorded a hit in eight of the last nine games he has started, and is 6-for-17 in his last five. He will likely return to the lineup Sunday and look to stay hot.
Span injured the hip crashing into the wall earlier in the week, and his absence Saturday looks to be mostly precautionary. Consider the outfielder day-to-day until further notice. Jarrett Parker entered the lineup in Span's absence, while Gregor Blanco shifted over from left field to center field and also assumed Span's usual place atop the order.
With Denard Span being scratched from the lineup, Blanco will take over in center field, while also moving up to the leadoff spot. Jarrett Parker will fill the void in left field, and he'll bat eighth in the order.
