San Francisco Giants Player News: All Positions

News: Crawford went 3-for-6 with a double and a pair of RBI in Tuesday's extra-innings win over Boston.
Impact: Crawford was one of four Giants to reach base at least three times in an exciting back-and-forth contest against an inter-league foe. The 32-year-old's season has been nothing short of a disaster (.234/.311/.361 through 139 games), but the shortstop has been showing a little life at the plate with eight hits and five walks over his last five starts.
News: Longoria went 2-for-4 with three walks and a run scored in Tuesday's 15-inning win over the Red Sox.
Impact: Longoria was an on-base machine for the Giants in this one, raising his season mark to .329, the best we've seen from the slugger since 2013. The 33-year-old will likely never return to numbers we saw during his days in Tampa Bay, but 2019 has been a respectable bounceback campaign with a .260/.329/.448 slash line through 120 games.
News: Belt went 1-for-6 with a solo home run and a walk in Tuesday's 7-6 victory over the Red Sox.
Impact: Belt got the Giants' offense rolling with his 17th home run of the year in the first inning of a game that would last 15 frames. The 31-year-old overcame his injury woes this season (146 games played), but that was negated by career lows in batting average (.236) and slugging percentage (.411). That said, Belt has put together a nice little hot streak over his last 10 contests, slashing .342/.405/.632 with seven extra-base hits as he tries to finish the 2019 campaign on a strong note.
News: Dickerson (oblique) came off the bench to provide a sacrifice fly in his lone plate appearance against the Red Sox on Tuesday.
Impact: Dickerson was held out of the starting lineup again despite serving as a pinch hitter in Sunday's contest and getting extra rest on the team's off day Monday. The back-to-back pinch-hit appearances could indicate that the 29-year-old is inching closer to playing a full nine, but everyday playing time may be out of the question with only two weeks left in the regular season and the Giants all but eliminated from playoff contention. Dickerson has slashed .288/.345/.523 (168 plate appearances) when healthy this year.
News: Yastrzemski went 2-for-7 with a double and his 20th home run of the season in Tuesday's extra-innings win over the Red Sox.
Impact: Yastrzemski -- grandson of Hall of Famer Carl Yastrzemski -- made his first ever start at Fenway Park, the venue in which his grandfather called home over his illustrious 23-year career. The 29-year-old rookie was showered with cheers despite donning the road team's uniform, and he responded by reaching the 20-homer plateau in just his 97th game of the season. Yastrzemski did appear to tweak something when he hit a ground-rule double in the 14th inning, but the outfielder was able to stay in the contest and even record another at-bat before his club finally put the Red Sox away in the 15th frame, Hank Schulman of The San Francisco Chronicle reports. Check back to make sure that his injury didn't worsen overnight prior to Wednesday's tilt.
News: Webb allowed three earned runs on three hits and four walks while striking out three across five innings Tuesday against the Red Sox. He did not factor into the decision.
Impact: Webb pitched well for four innings, but unraveled a bit late in his start. The trouble began in the fifth frame, when he allowed a solo home run to Jackie Bradley. He then went back out to begin the sixth inning but was pulled after allowing a leadoff triple. All told, this was one of Webb's more effective starts, though his 6.75 ERA and 1.76 WHIP shed light on his prior lack of effectiveness. He'll look to build on this performance in his next outing, currently scheduled for Sunday at Atlanta.
News: Posey isn't in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Red Sox due to lower back and hip tightness, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Impact: Posey will be considered day-to-day and could be available to pinch hit Tuesday, if necessary. Stephen Vogt figures to handle the catching duties until Posey is cleared to return.
News: Davis (wrist) isn't in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Red Sox, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.
Impact: Davis has been nursing a bruised left wrist since being drilled by a pitch Thursday, and he hasn't entered the starting lineup since. He'll continue to be considered day-to-day until the Giants provide another update.
News: Dickerson (oblique) isn't in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against Boston, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.
Impact: Dickerson has been nursing an oblique injury, and even though he was able to pinch hit in Sunday's series finale against Miami, he's not ready to return to the starting nine just yet. Austin Slater draws the start in right field and will bat eighth.
News: Posey isn't in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Red Sox, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.
Impact: Posey took a seat for Sunday's series finale against Miami, and even after benefitting from a team off day Monday, he's in line for another breather. Stephen Vogt will handle the catching duties and hit cleanup.
