San Francisco Giants Fantasy Spin

Giants activated C Buster Posey from the 7-day concussion injured list. Posey wound up missing just the minimum seven days. He's back in the Giants' lineup Friday against Merrill Kelly and the Diamondbacks. Aramis Garcia was optioned in a corresponding move.

Arizona Diamondbacks Fantasy Spin

Adam Jones delivered his ninth homer as part of a two-hit effort Wednesday in Arizona’s 11-1 rout of Pittsburgh. Jones had his fingerprints all over Wednesday’s victory. The former Oriole walked and scored in the first inning, blasted a solo shot off Chris Stratton in the fifth, then reached again on an infield single in the seventh. Rejuvenated by his move to the desert, Jones has impressed with a .276/.341/.509 slash line with nine jacks, 11 doubles and 25 RBI across 163 at-bats this year
