Chase d'Arnaud finished 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's 6-2 loss against the Athletics.

The 31-year-old was leading off for manager Bruce Bochy, and he recorded his second straight multi-hit game, and the third in the past four games while swatting two solo homers during the span. The journeyman is making the most of his chance with Joe Panik on the shelf, but don't expect the good times to continue for long. He still warrants very little in the way of fantasy consideration heading into the second half.

Andrew Suarez allowed four earned runs, four hits and two walks with five strikeouts over five innings in a loss against the Athletics on Sunday.

Suarez labored to get through five frames, throwing 59 of his 90 pitches for strikes. The good news is that the left-hander has allowed just two homers over his past seven outings across the past 41 innings. The bad news is that he has issued six walks over the past 11 innings. Despite a 3-6 record he still has a solid 3.94 ERA and 1.22 WHIP in his first 84 innings in the majors.

Giants recalled INF Kelby Tomlinson from Triple-A Sacramento.

Tomlinson has hit just .221/.285/.274 during his time in the majors this season. He'll back up at a variety of positions.

Giants placed RHP Jeff Samardzija on the 10-day disabled list with right shoulder inflammation.

Samardzija lasted just two unproductive starts before going back on the DL with the same injury that cost him a month earlier this season. He will undergo an MRI before hopefully more is known about how much time he might miss this time around. Derek Holland will go back into the rotation with Samardzija sidelined.

Steven Duggar went 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles, two runs scored and a run batted in in Saturday's loss to the A's.

Duggar's fourth-inning RBI double tied the game at 2-2. The Giants would surge ahead by a run before the frame's end, with the A's flipping the scoreboard a final time via a seventh-inning two-run homer by Mark Canha home run which proved to be the deciding blow. As for Duggar, specifically, the 24-year-old outfielder has now recorded a hit in all five of the games in which he's appeared at the big league level. That's a nice enough to start out your career. The rookie's connected for four doubles in the last two games.

Buster Posey went 2-for-4 with a walk in Saturday's loss to the A's.

Posey has now turned in multi-hit efforts in three consecutive games as he heads toward the break on a heater. For the campaign as a whole, the veteran backstop is slashing .292/.370/.414 with five home runs and 31 RBI across 79 games played. It's been a quieter season than we're used to from the fantasy rock.

Jeff Samardzija allowed two runs on three hits over four innings in Saturday's loss to the A's.

Samardzija was making his second start since returning from the disabled list after missing a month while battling inflammation in his right shoulder. Whether that is still bothering him or not, the veteran right-hander failed to give his team any sort of length on Saturday. He had thrown just 55 pitches through four innings before being relieved of duty, too, one outing after throwing 81 pitches. If his arm's feeling fatigued -- or if there's anything lingering, here -- the Giants figure to pass along word in the coming days. In 10 starts this year, Samardzija owns a rough 6.25 ERA and 1.63 WHIP.
Jul 15 - 1:27 AM

Brandon Belt was ejected from Saturday's game against the Athletics for arguing balls and strikes.

More specifically, Belt didn't appreciate a check-swing call by third base umpire Greg Gibson in the bottom of the fourth inning and let him know, and he was dismissed accordingly. Belt was hitless in three at-bats before being shown the door. Pablo Sandoval took over at first base.
Jul 14 - 11:34 PM

Madison Bumgarner surrendered one run and three hits in six innings Friday in a win over the A's.

It's the first time since 2012 that a healthy Bumgarner will miss out on the All-Star Game, but the left-hander has a 1.95 ERA and 32 strikeouts in 32 1/3 innings over his last five starts.
Jul 14 - 1:59 AM

Reyes Moronta threw a perfect inning against the A's on Friday for his seventh save.

Moronto has gone 12 straight appearances without allowing a hit. That stretch covers only 8 1/3 innings, as the Giants like to play matchups with him, but he's still earned three wins, a save and four holds during the span.
Jul 14 - 1:56 AM

Steven Duggar doubled twice, walked once and scored three times against the A's on Friday.

Duggar came through tonight after going 4-for-17 with eight strikeouts and no walks in his first three games. He projects as a worse player than Gorkys Hernandez has been this year, but then, Hernandez projects as a worse player than Hernandez has been this year. Duggar will probably get some run as a starter over the next few weeks as the Giants try to figure out whether he's an upgrade. His fantasy potential is rather modest.
Jul 14 - 1:52 AM

Buster Posey went 2-for-4 with a double and two RBI as the Giants' No. 5 hitter on Friday.

It was the first time Posey had hit lower than fourth in the Giants' lineup since his rookie season in 2010. There's no good reason for the team to bat him that low; he hasn't been quite up to his usual standards this year, but he's still as good of a bet as anyone in the Giants' lineup.
Jul 14 - 1:49 AM

Giants signed OF Peter Bourjos to a minor league contract.

Bourjos elected free agency last week after being designated for assignment by the Braves. He hit just .205/.239/.364 with a homer and four RBI in 44 at-bats with the Braves. The 31-year-old will add outfield depth for the Giants, though his days of fantasy relevancy are long gone.
Jul 13 - 7:56 PM

Giants C Joey Bart went 1-for-4 with a homer on Thursday for short-season Salem-Keizer.

That homer is the sixth since Bart signed with the Giants, and the fourth straight game he's gone deep. The second pick in this June's draft, Bart has had no problem showing his power stroke in the Northwest League, and his .290 average in his first taste of professional baseball is nothing to sneeze at, either. San Francisco doesn't have to rush Bart, but we could see him advance to full-season baseball before the end of the year. He could help the Giants before the end of 2020.
Jul 13 - 1:15 PM

Johnny Cueto gave up six hits and three runs over five innings Wednesday in a no-decision versus Chicago.

He totaled seven strikeouts and three walks over 86 pitches. Cueto also hit a batter and threw a wild pitch. All the damage came on home runs with Jason Heyward and Kris Bryant both going deep for Chicago. Cueto has mostly struggled since coming off the disabled list but should improve as he moves further away from his elbow injury. He won’t make another start until after the All-Star break.
