Sun Jul 1421:30Blake Snell Excellent On Sunday
San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Blake Snell was nearly unhittable during Sunday's start against the Minnesota Twins. The southpaw allowed one hit over seven scoreless innings while striking out eight batters. This is now back-to-back strong outings from Snell after a horrible start to the season. Hopefully that short stint on the injured list got the left hander back on track. Snell has allowed two hits over 12 scoreless innings since returning to the starting rotation.

Wed Jul 1012:23Blake Snell Looks Sharp In First Start Off The Injured List
In his return from the 15-day injured list on Tuesday night against the visiting Toronto Blue Jays, San Francisco Giants left-hander Blake Snell looked the best he's looked all year in what has been a rough season after winning the National League Cy Young in 2023. Snell threw five shutout innings while allowing just one hit, walking three and striking out three in a no-decision. The strong outing lowered the 31-year-old southpaw's ERA to 7.85 on the year and his WHIP to 1.74. Given that this was his first major-league start in over a month, fantasy managers shouldn't have been surprised that he threw only 73 pitches. Snell will have a more difficult matchup this weekend against the Minnesota Twins before next week's All-Star break, but fantasy managers will be hoping he can build on Tuesday's fine start and gain some momentum heading into the second half.

San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Blake Snell (groin) has been activated from the 15-day injured list on Tuesday. The southpaw will take the mound versus the Toronto Blue Jays after missing over a month due to a groin issue. The reigning NL CY Young award winner has been horrendous with the Giants this season. The organization is hopeful that this time off would help Snell press the reset button on his early season struggles. We'll see if he has made the right adjustments on Tuesday.

Sun Jul 713:40Blake Snell Expected To Return On Tuesday
San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Blake Snell (groin) is expected to make his return to the mound on Tuesday against the Toronto Blue Jays. The southpaw has been sidelined for over a month due to a groin strain. Before that, Snell had an ugly 9.64 ERA through six starts with San Francisco. He looked fantastic with nine strikeouts over five scoreless innings during his latest rehab start. Hopefully, the time off has helped Snell get back on track.

Fri Jul 514:18Blake Snell Looks Dominant In Latest Rehab Start
San Francisco Giants left-hander Blake Snell (groin) was dominant in his latest minor-league rehab start on Wednesday for Triple-A Sacramento, tossing five shutout innings while giving up zero hits, walking one and striking out nine. This was Snell's third rehab start since going on the 15-day injured list on June 3 with another groin injury. The 31-year-old southpaw threw 46 of his 67 pitches for strikes on Wednesday and is expected to be able to return to the Giants' starting rotation next week before the All-Star break. Things couldn't have gone any worse for Snell coming off his National League Cy Young award in 2023, as he's gone 0-3 with a 9.51 ERA and 1.94 WHIP with 31 K's in 23 2/3 innings over only six starts in 2024 in his first year with the Gigantes. If Snell does come off the IL next week, he'll likely be facing the Toronto Blue Jays.

Mon Jun 2421:16Blake Snell To Make Another Rehab Start Friday
San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Blake Snell (groin) will throw a bullpen session on Tuesday and start for the Sacramento River Cats at Triple-A on Friday, manager Bob Melvin said ahead of Monday's series opener against the visiting Chicago Cubs. After Snell struggled in Sunday's minor-league rehab appearance in his recovery from a strained left groin, the Giants have quickly decided that he needs some more work on the farm before they re-insert the hurler back into their rotation. It rules out a return before the end of June for Snell, who fantasy managers are patiently waiting on to kick-start his season. Through six starts during his first year in San Francisco, the 31-year-old reigning National League Cy Young Award winner has a dismal 9.51 ERA, 1.94 WHIP, and 31:14 K:BB over 23 2/3 innings.

Mon Jun 2401:15Blake Snell Struggles In Rehab Outing
San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Blake Snell (groin) labored through his first rehab start on Sunday, tossing 1 innings while allowing two runs on three hits. He didn't strike out a batter and walked three. It wasn't the appearance that Snell or the Giants were looking for and shows that he's going to need at least one more rehab start before he can return to the big league team. It's been a bit of a disaster season for Snell, who signed with the Giants late and hasn't been able to find his midseason form. Injuries haven't helped his cause, but that doesn't excuse the abysmal 9.51 ERA and 1.94 WHIP Snell has this season. Fantasy managers who own Snell know that he can turn it on at any point and look like a Cy Young candidate, but he will need to do that soon to salvage this season.

Sat Jun 2213:58Blake Snell Starting Rehab Assignment On Sunday
San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Blake Snell (groin) will begin a minor-league rehab assignment with Triple-A Sacramento on Sunday, June 23. Snell was placed on the 15-day injured list on June 5 with a left groin strain. However, he has not faced any setbacks and is now ready to begin the final step of his recovery process. The reigning NL Cy Young Award winner has had a rough start to the season after battling numerous injuries. Currently, he sits with a poor 9.51 ERA, 1.94 WHIP, and a 14:31 BB:K ratio. Despite the inflated ratios, he still holds an above-average 26.1 % K rate and 31.4% whiff rate, which is a good sign moving forward. Snell should remain rostered in all formats and could be a solid piece to your rotation in the second half of the summer.

Mon Jun 318:24Blake Snell Officially Placed On Injured List
San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Blake Snell (groin) has been placed on the 15-day injured list on Monday. As expected, Snell will miss time after suffering a groin injury during Sunday's start versus the New York Yankees. In a corresponding move, the Giants have activated outfielder Michael Conforto (hamstring) from the injured list. The Giants have not made a move for another starting pitcher yet. That means, Mason Black could get a shot in the starting rotation. Hopefully it'll be a minimal stint on the injured list for Snell who was struggling to the tune of a 9.51 ERA through six starts before the injury.

Sun Jun 222:06Blake Snell Expected To Land On 15-Day Injured List
The San Francisco Giants are expected to place 2023 National League Cy Young Award winner Blake Snell (groin) on the injured list with a left-groin injury that he suffered during his start on Sunday against the New York Yankees. He allowed three earned runs on five hits, striking out seven and walking three in 4 2/3 innings in the loss. It is the second time Snell has been on the IL this season, having previously missed 25 games with a left-groin strain. The talented left-hander will undergo an MRI exam on Monday, at which point we should have a better idea of how much time Snell might miss this time around. He is 0-3 with a 9.51 ERA in 23 2/3 innings this season, one that has left fantasy managers in a state of frustration with Snell.

Sun Jun 219:17Blake Snell Exits Early On Sunday
San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Blake Snell (groin) was removed early during Sunday's start against the New York Yankees. Snell received a visit from manager Bob Melvin and training staff before being removed in the fifth inning. He ended his day giving up three runs on five hits and striking out seven batters. The hope is that this issue won't require Snell to be placed on the injured list. Fantasy managers should receive another update on his status later on.

Sun May 2613:50Blake Snell Reinstated From Paternity List, Starting Monday
San Francisco Giants starter Blake Snell (personal) was reinstated from the paternity list on Sunday afternoon. The 31-year-old is reportedly still awaiting the birth of his baby but will return to the team to start Monday's game against the Philadelphia Phillies. It is possible that he goes back on the paternity list after the game. Snell has endured a rocky start to his first season with the Giants as he's posted an 0-3 record to go along with a bloated 11.40 ERA, 2.07 WHIP and 17:9 K:BB through four starts. It is tough to trust last year's Cy Young winner right now, especially against a powerful Phillies offense.

Thu May 2312:52Blake Snell Goes On Paternity List
The San Francisco Giants placed left-hander Blake Snell on the paternity list on Thursday and recalled relief pitcher Nick Avila from Double-A Richmond in a corresponding move. Snell should be back in time for his next start against the Philadelphia Phillies. The reigning National League Cy Young winner made his return from the injured list on Wednesday to face the Pittsburgh Pirates and he'll now leave the team for a few days. In his return from a groin strain, Snell allowed four earned runs on four hits while walking a season-high four batters and striking out five in 3 1/3 innings in a no-decision. The 31-year-old southpaw remains winless on the year with a nightmarish 11.40 ERA and 2.07 WHIP with 17 strikeouts in 15 innings of work over four starts. Snell should be able to get things figured out and has been notorious for being a slow starter, so he's worth some buy-low offers if you're in need of a strikeout artist.

Tue May 2121:23Blake Snell Set To Return Wednesday
San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Blake Snell (groin) is expected to be reinstated from the injured list to start Wednesday's game against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Snell has been out of action since April 19 due to a strained left groin, but he's ready to roll following two strong appearances on his minor-league rehab assignment. It's worth noting that Snell is expecting his first child in the coming days, but at this point in time, manager Bob Melvin feels like he's going to pitch on Wednesday. The hard-throwing 31-year-old left-hander gave up 15 runs over 11 2/3 innings (three starts) before going down, but fantasy managers should feel pretty good about Snell's chances of kick-starting his season in a soft matchup against Pittsburgh.

Sun May 1913:28Blake Snell Returning To The Rotation Soon
San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Blake Snell (groin) is nearing a return to the big-league rotation. The left-hander has been sidelined since late April due to a lingering groin issue. The good news is that Snell looked great during his most recent rehab outing on Friday. The left-hander threw five scoreless innings and struck out 10 batters. It sounds like the plan is for Snell's next start to be with the Giants. That'll likely happen at some point next week, possibly Wednesday versus the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Sat May 1812:11Blake Snell Fans 10 In Rehab Start
San Francisco Giants left-hander Blake Snell (groin) looked to be in midseason form in his minor-league rehab start on Friday night with Triple-A Sacramento, as he struck out 10 batters over five no-hit innings. In his first rehab start with Single-A San Jose last week, the 31-year-old reigning National League Cy Young threw four perfect innings with seven strikeouts, so we think the Giants will feel comfortable activating Snell from the 15-day injured list to make his next outing in the big leagues. Snell signed with the Giants late and wasn't ready for the start of the 2024 season. And when he did debut, he didn't look good, posting an 11.57 ERA and 1.97 WHIP with 12 strikeouts in 11 2/3 innings over his three starts. Now that Snell appears to be fully healthy, he could quickly bounce back for fantasy managers if he keeps the walks to a minimum. Snell needs to be rostered in all leagues.

Tue May 1419:36Blake Snell To Make Another Rehab Start On Friday
San Francisco Giants left-hander Blake Snell (groin) will make another minor-league rehab start on Friday for Triple-A Sacramento, and as long as all goes well in that outing, the next step would be returning to a major-league mound. Snell is getting close to returning to the Giants' starting rotation after tweaking his groin. In his first rehab start for Single-A San Jose, Snell threw four perfect innings with seven strikeouts. If Snell's final rehab start is this Friday, he could be lined up to come off the injured list to make his next start on May 23 in a strong matchup against the Pittsburgh Pirates. The 31-year-old southpaw had a rude awakening with an 11.57 ERA and 1.97 WHIP with 12 strikeouts in 11 2/3 innings in his first three starts in 2024 after winning the National League Cy Young in 2023. Despite his rough start, Snell should be stashed in all fantasy leagues.

Mon May 1312:52Blake Snell Expected To Make Another Rehab Start
San Francisco Giants left-hander Blake Snell (groin) expects to make another minor-league rehab start before being reinstated from the injured list to rejoin the Giants' starting rotation. Snell was dominant in his first rehab outing with Single-A San Jose on Sunday, tossing four shutout innings with seven strikeouts. He threw only 46 pitches in the contest but touched 97 mph on the radar gun and tossed an addition 15 pitches in the bullpen after being removed from the contest. It makes sense for San Francisco to give Snell another start in the minors after he got off to a late start in 2024 because of the timing of his signing. The 31-year-old reigning National League Cy Young winner also got off to a rough start in his first three games before landing on the injured list, going 0-3 with an 11.57 ERA and 1.97 WHIP with 12 K's in 11 2/3 innings.

Wed May 819:42Blake Snell Set To Start Rehab Assignment Sunday
San Francisco Giants left-hander Blake Snell (groin) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session on Thursday and then start a minor-league rehab assignment with Single-A San Jose on Sunday, according to manager Bob Melvin. Snell started facing live hitters on Tuesday and is ready to take the next step by pitching in a minor-league game later this weekend. The 31-year-old is recovering from an adductor strain and figures to pitch in more than one rehab game after starting the year late given the timing of his signing with the Giants. In his first three starts with the Giants, Snell lost all three starts while allowing 15 earned runs on 18 hits (two home runs) while walking five and striking out 12 in 11 2/3 innings. It's not the start his fantasy managers were hoping for, but Snell is also a notoriously slow starter and needs to be rostered in all leagues for his high-strikeout upside.

Mon May 619:22Blake Snell Progressing To Live Batting Practice Tuesday
San Francisco Giants left-hander Blake Snell (groin) had a successful bullpen session over the weekend and will now throw three innings to live hitters in a batting practice session on Tuesday, according to manager Bob Melvin. Snell's next steps after that are to be determined. The reigning National League Cy Young winner is eligible to come off the injured list on Wednesday, but it remains to be seen if the 31-year-old southpaw will be back with the Giants by then after missing more than two weeks with a Grade 2 groin strain. We'd bet on Snell going on a minor-league rehab assignment first after surrendering 15 earned runs in 11 2/3 innings over his first three starts before getting hurt. Despite the injury and rough start, Snell needs to be rostered in all fantasy formats for his high-strikeout upside.
