Player Outlook
Michael Conforto signed a one-year, $18 million contract with the Giants in December of 2022 after missing the entire previous season because of a shoulder injury that eventually required surgery. It was a prove-it style of deal which Conforto was hoping to parlay into a multi-year pact after reestablishing himself as a power-hitting corner outfielder. Instead, he had to exercise the $18 million player option included in the agreement and will return to San Francisco with lingering questions about what kind of player he is and what kind of player he can be moving forward. Conforto held an .824 OPS across his first seven MLB seasons between 2015-21 before turning in just a .718 OPS in 2023. He hit 33 home runs over 151 games with the Mets in 2019 but has averaged only 20 homers for every 162 games played since the beginning of 2020. Outside of maybe OBP leagues, the current fantasy outlook here lacks a certain luster.

  • Giants' Michael Conforto: Cleared for batting practice

    Conforto (hamstring) has been cleared to take on-field batting practice, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Conforto landed on the 10-day injured list just over a week ago a right hamstring strain. Taking batting practice is certainly a positive step in his recovery, although running will be a bigger hurdle for him to clear and it's uncertain when he might be ready for that. Conforto is eligible for activation Wednesday, but it would appear he'll need a little more time than that.

  • Giants' Michael Conforto: Lands on IL with hamstring strain

    The Giants placed Conforto on the 10-day injured list Sunday due to a right hamstring strain. After Conforto left in the fourth inning of Saturday's win against the Reds, the hope was that the right hamstring strain was mild enough for the 31-year-old to be considered day-to-day. The MRI on Sunday revealed a more severe strain, and Conforto will be sidelined until at least May 22. In a corresponding move, the Giants recalled Luis Matos from Triple-A Sacremento.

  • Giants' Michael Conforto: Not starting Sunday

    Conforto (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup for Sunday's series finale against the Reds, Shayna Rubin of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Conforto left in the bottom of the fourth inning in Saturday's 5-1 win, and Giants manager Bob Melvin described the right hamstring strain as "mild," per John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle. With Conforto out of the lineup Sunday, Heliot Ramos will start in left field while Patrick Bailey serves as the designated hitter.

  • Giants' Michael Conforto: Diagnosed with strained hamstring

    Conforto has been diagnosed with a strained right hamstring, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. For what it's worth, Giants manager Bob Melvin said of the strain that "it feels mild," but more will be known after Conforto undergoes an MRI on Sunday. Luis Matos was pulled mid-game from Triple-A Sacramento's contest Saturday and would appear poised to take Conforto's roster spot if a move is needed.

  • Giants' Michael Conforto: Leaves game with tight hamstring

    Conforto departed Saturday's game versus the Reds due to right hamstring tightness, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports. Conforto singled in the bottom of the fourth inning but had to be removed for a pinch runner. The Giants could have more on his status after the game. Conforto had the single and a strikeout in two plate appearances before exiting.

  • Giants' Michael Conforto: Goes deep in second straight game

    Conforto went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk Thursday in a loss to the Rockies. Conforto accounted for San Francisco's only run with a solo shot to left field in the fourth inning. It was his second homer in as many days following a 12-game stretch without a long ball. Conforto's power has run hot and cold this season -- he went deep three times over his first five games of the campaign, then homered just twice over his subsequent 29 contests before his current two-game long-ball streak.

  • Giants' Michael Conforto: Homer, three hits in win

    Conforto went 3-for-4 with a home run and two runs scored in Wednesday's win over the Rockies. Conforto jumped on a hanging four-seamer from Peter Lambert to lead off the second inning and crushed it over the wall in right field to open a six-run rally for San Francisco. The outfielder would later add a single in the same frame before finishing the contest with his third three-hit performance of the season. Conforto has now hit safely in four of his last five games, while the home run was his first since April 22. He's batting .269 in May with three RBI and three runs scored and has also drawn a walk in three straight contests.

  • Giants' Michael Conforto: Belts fifth long ball in victory

    Conforto went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and an additional run Monday in a 5-2 win against the Mets. Conforto scored San Francisco's first run after singling in the second inning, and he accounted for the team's final tally with a solo shot to right field in the sixth. The performance snapped a nine-game stretch during which the veteran batted just .171 and failed to register a multi-hit effort. Despite that cold snap, Conforto has started the season well, posting a .271/.311/.506 slash line with five homers, 16 RBI and 13 runs through 90 plate appearances.

  • Giants' Michael Conforto: Day off Wednesday

    Conforto is absent from the lineup for Wednesday's game in Miami, Shayna Rubin of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Southpaw Trevor Rogers will take the hill for the Marlins, so the left-handed-hitting Conforto will get a day off. Tyler Fitzgerald will get the start in left field for the Giants.

  • Giants' Michael Conforto: Clubs homer Sunday

    Conforto went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's 9-4 loss to the Rays. Conforto has gone 4-for-20 with two extra-base hits, three RBI and four strikeouts over five games since he recovered from a minor side issue. He's retained a starting role in left field despite the cooldown after a strong start to the campaign. The veteran outfielder is slashing .298/.355/.596 with four homers, 13 RBI, 10 runs scored and five doubles through 62 plate appearances. He was also caught stealing on his only attempt of the year so far.

  • Giants' Michael Conforto: Back in lineup

    Conforto is back in the lineup Tuesday versus the Nationals, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Conforto was not in Monday's lineup due to a minor side issue. As expected, he returns to the lineup in left field Tuesday, batting fourth.

  • Giants' Michael Conforto: Nursing side issue

    Conforto isn't in Monday's lineup against the Nationals due to a minor side issue, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. The Giants are likely holding Conforto out of the lineup as a precaution, and Slusser notes that Conforto could be available to pinch hit Monday if needed. The club expects its starting left fielder to be back in the starting nine for Tuesday's clash.

  • Giants' Michael Conforto: Stays hot Friday

    Conforto went 3-for-4 with two doubles and one RBI in Friday's 3-2 win over the Padres. Conforto knocked in the Giants' first run with an RBI double in the first inning. The outfielder has been held hitless in just one of eight games so far, which has helped him stake his claim to a starting job in left field. He's batting .419 with three home runs, four doubles, 10 RBI and eight runs scored across 33 plate appearances. Conforto's strong hitting out of the gate has seen him move up to the cleanup spot over the last three games.

  • Giants' Michael Conforto: Launches third homer

    Conforto went 1-for-4 with a solo home run against the Dodgers in Monday's loss. Conforto had the only extra-base hit of the game for San Francisco, belting a solo homer to right field in the sixth inning. The veteran outfielder has started his second season in San Francisco well, reaching base in each of the team's five games to date and homering three times over that span. Conforto averaged a modest 14.5 long balls over the past two campaigns, but he's well on pace to exceed that given his hot start so far.

  • Giants' Michael Conforto: Launches grand slam

    Conforto went 2-for-4 with a double and a grand slam in Saturday's 9-6 win over the Padres. Conforto's second career grand slam broke the game open in the eighth inning. Left-handed reliever Tom Cosgrove surrendered the home run to Conforto, who had just a .598 OPS and 29:3 K:BB against lefties last season. The outfielder has already popped two home runs in his team's first three games.

  • Giants' Michael Conforto: Collects three hits, homers

    Conforto went 3-for-4 with a double, a solo home run and two additional runs scored during Thursday's loss to the Padres. Conforto tagged closer Robert Suarez for a solo homer with two outs in the ninth inning and fell one triple shy of an Opening Day cycle. Tabbed as the Giants' everyday left fielder, Conforto should have ample opportunity to make fantasy contributions after slashing .239/.334/.384 with 58 runs scored and 58 RBI in 2023.

  • Giants' Michael Conforto: Seen as everyday left fielder

    Conforto is expected to handle an everyday role in left field, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Prior to the Jorge Soler signing, Conforto was projected as the designated hitter, but that has changed. It's still early in spring training, and there's a chance another outfielder could infringe on Conforto's role, namely Luis Matos. Blake Sabol also played some left field in 2023, but for now, it's Conforto's job to lose.

  • Giants' Michael Conforto: Slated for designated hitter duty

    Conforto is in line to serve as the Giants' primary designated hitter in 2024, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports. San Francisco wants to improve its outfield defense, which led to the signing of Jung Hoo Lee and its apparent plan to use Luis Matos in left field and Conforto at DH, at least against righties. Conforto made 104 of his 115 starts last year in the outfield but finished in the 22nd percentile in Outs Above Average, per Baseball Savant.

  • Giants' Michael Conforto: Picks up $18M player option

    Conforto exercised his $18 million player option for 2024 on Monday, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports. Conforto missed all of the 2022 season following shoulder surgery and didn't have the bounce-back 2023 campaign that he envisioned, slashing just .239/.334/.384 with 15 home runs over 125 games. As such, he will opt into the one year remaining on his deal with the Giants and hope to play his way into a multi-year pact next winter.

  • Giants' Michael Conforto: Not in starting nine

    Conforto will hit the bench Saturday against the Dodgers, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports. Conforto will join the rest of the team's left-handed bats on the bench against Clayton Kershaw. Heliot Ramos will take over in left field.
