Pillar went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's extra-inning loss to the Diamondbacks.
Pillar has been unconscious at the plate, slashing .410/.425/.718 with four homers, 14 runs, 10 RBI and two steals over his last 10 games. The veteran outfielder put together a power-speed binge over a short period of time earlier this year and appears to be in the midst of one yet again. Pillar is worth a look universally while his bat is on fire, but his .242 average, nine homers and eight steals overall have been good enough for deep mixed and NL-only owners over the course of the season.
Pillar went 2-for-4 with a walk, a home run, two runs scored and four RBI in Friday's 11-5 win over the Diamondbacks.
He and Alex Dickerson combined to drive in 10 of the Giants' 11 runs, forming a surprisingly potent duo from the bottom half of the order. Pillar is now slashing a tepid .249/.277/.415 since joining San Francisco, but his recent performance has been much improved -- through 18 games in June, he's got a .309/.319/.544 line with three homers, two steals, 12 RBI and 14 runs.
Pillar went 2-for-5 with a pair of RBI and a run scored in Saturday's 8-7 win over the Brewers.
After homering in consecutive games, Pillar kept the good times rolling with another strong fantasy line. The 30-year-old is still hitting a meager .228 on the season, but his career-low .239 BABIP (.289 career BABIP) indicates that he has been experiencing some poor batted ball luck. If Pillar is able to eventually get that average back up to a tolerable .240-.250 range, then his modest power/speed combo (eight homers and eight steals) would become viable in deeper formats.
Pillar went 3-for-3 with a solo home run, a second run scored, and two stolen bases in Friday's 5-3 win over the Brewers.
The speedy outfielder's fifth-inning homer restored a one-run lead for the Giants, and he scored again in the seventh inning on a two-run shot by Mike Yastrzemski. Pillar is up to eight homers and eight steals this season despite an on-base percentage of .265 in 62 games.
Pillar went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's win over the Padres.
Pillar got the Giants on the board with a solo shot to deep left field against Joey Lucchesi in the second inning. Despite getting off to a fast start this season, the long ball marked Pillar's first since May 7 against the Rockies. Overall, the 30-year-old has tallied seven home runs, 27 RBI and 25 runs scored while slashing just .225/.255/.362.
