Austin Jackson's RBI-double in the bottom of the 13th inning produced the only run of a 1-0 win over the Marlins on Saturday.
Michael Conforto led off the bottom half of the 13th inning with a single and moved to second on a Jack Reinheimer walk. Jackson then thumped a double in the gap for the walk-off victory. The part-time outfielder is slashing .247/.301/.328 with three homers and 32 RBI in 372 plate appearances for the Giants and Mets this year. He hasn't been useful in fantasy leagues for the last several seasons. Sep 30 - 12:07 AM

Dominic Smith is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Braves.

Assuming the weather holds out, Jay Bruce will make the start at first base while Austin Jackson is in center field. Smith should still get another couple of starts this final week.

Michael Conforto is not in Monday's lineup versus the Giants.

He'll take a seat with left-hander Derek Holland on the mound for San Francisco. Brandon Nimmo is also out nursing a finger injury, so Jose Bautista, Austin Jackson, and Jack Reinheimer will play from right to left in the Mets' outfield.

Michael Conforto is not in the Mets' lineup Sunday because of a sore left thumb.

Conforto first injured the thumb a week and a half ago when he got jammed by a pitch and he aggravated it Saturday when he got jammed a couple more times. He's available off the bench Sunday and should be ready to return to the lineup Tuesday following Monday's off day. Austin Jackson is getting a start in Conforto's place.

Hunter Pence has been pulled off his rehab assignment with Triple-A Sacramento due to recurring soreness in his right thumb.

Pence has already been sidelined for nearly three weeks and obviously it's going to be a while longer before he returns. with Mac Williamson (concussion) also still out indefinitely, the Giants will continue rolling with Andrew McCutchen in right field and rotate Gregor Blanco, Austin Jackson and Gorkys Hernandez in left and center.

Mac Williamson was scratched from the Giants' starting lineup on Wednesday due to neck stiffness.

Williamson tripped and crashed hard into the left field wall while chasing down a foul ball on Tuesday night, though he did stay in the game initially. Gregor Blanco will start in left field and Austin Jackson will play center field Wednesday versus the Nationals. Williamson has three home runs and six RBI in six games since joining the Giants on April 20 as the corresponding move for Hunter Pence (thumb) landing on the disabled list. He should stick around when Pence returns.

Giants general manager Bobby Evans said Friday that Steven Duggar could begin the year in the minors, in a platoon in the majors, or "he might very well make our club as our center fielder."

In other words, the club is heading into camp with an open mind as to Duggar's role, with the hope that he wows them. Duggar might be the Giants' best defensive option in center field right now, but he's not on the 40-man roster yet and only has 13 games of experience at the Triple-A level. San Francisco would prefer to use Austin Jackson more as a fourth outfielder, but they might be more likely to bring in someone like Jarrod Dyson rather than roll with Duggar in center.
