  • Giants' Luis Matos: Stays hot with six-RBI day

    Matos went 3-for-5 with a home run and six RBI in Saturday's 14-4 victory over the Rockies.

    Matos drove in a career-high five runs in Friday's series opener and then one-upped himself Saturday. He got the scoring going in this one with a two-out, three-run home run in the bottom of the first inning. The youngster then followed that with an RBI double in his next trip to the dish before capping off his night with a two-RBI single. Matos is just the fourth Giants player ever to notch consecutive five-RBI games, and he has tallied a whopping 17 RBI in seven contests since being recalled. While he had just a .661 OPS with the Giants last season and a .663 OPS this year at Triple-A Sacramento, Matos is a former top prospect who just turned 22 in January. At the very least, he's become a player who needs to be rostered in five-outfielder leagues.

  • Giants' Luis Matos: Five RBI in win

    Matos went 3-for-5 with two doubles and five RBI in Friday's 10-5 win over the Rockies.

    Matos enjoyed one of the best games of his career, driving in at least one run with each of his hits. He added an RBI on a groundout in the seventh inning as well. The 22-year-old is hitting .333 (7-for-21) with 11 RBI and three extra-base hits over his first six contests this season. With Jung Hoo Lee (shoulder) out for the year, Matos has a golden opportunity to claim a full-time major-league job if he can keep hitting well.

  • Giants' Luis Matos: Lifts three-run homer

    Matos went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Monday's 6-4 extra-inning loss to the Dodgers.

    Matos did his damage early, taking Yoshinobu Yamamoto deep in the second inning. The homer was Matos' first hit over three games this season, and he's added four RBI and two runs scored. The outfielder was slashing a paltry .218/.309/.355 over 31 contests with Triple-A Sacramento prior to his call-up, but he'll have a chance to show what he can do in the majors while filling in for Jung Hoo Lee (shoulder) in center field.

  • Giants' Luis Matos: Set to see work in center field

    Matos is expected to see work in center field for the Giants after being called up Monday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    Matos will be a top option to see a sizeable workload in center field in the absence of Jung Hoo Lee (shoulder) according to manager Bob Melvin. The 22-year-old has produced an underwhelming .218 batting average with three homers, 17 RBI, 13 runs scored and three stolen bases over 31 games in Triple-A this season, but with Michael Conforto (hamstring), Jorge Soler (shoulder) and Austin Slater (concussion) all also banged up, he may see extended run in the outfield.

  • Giants' Luis Matos: Moves up from Triple-A

    The Giants recalled Matos from Triple-A Sacramento on Sunday.

    Matos will join the Giants and provide outfield depth after Michael Conforto (hamstring) was placed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move. At the Triple-A level this season, Matos has slashed .221/.312/.361 with three home runs and 17 RBI over 141 plate appearances.

  • Giants' Luis Matos: Could replace Conforto on roster

    Matos was pulled from a game at Triple-A Sacramento on Saturday in case he's needed to replace Michael Conforto (hamstring) on the Giants' roster, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Conforto is dealing with a right hamstring strain and is set to undergo an MRI on Sunday to determine the extent of the injury. Matos has spent virtually the entire season with Sacramento and has struggled, having come into play Saturday slashing .221/.312/.361 with three home runs and three steals. He and Heliot Ramos could be the top options in left field for San Francisco if Conforto misses time.

  • Giants' Luis Matos: Returned to minors

    Matos was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Monday, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

    Matos went 0-for-4 with one RBI in his season debut Friday, but he'll return to the minors after Mike Yastrzemski was reinstated from the paternity list.

  • Giants' Luis Matos: Recalled from Triple-A

    The Giants recalled Matos from Triple-A Sacramento on Friday, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

    With Mike Yastrzemski away on paternity leave, Matos will come up from the minors to fill the void in San Francisco's outfield. The 22-year-old slashed .250/.319/.342 across 253 plate appearances in the majors last season, and he will likely grab a spot on the bench until Yastrzemski returns.

  • Giants' Luis Matos: Sent to Triple-A

    The Giants optioned Matos to Triple-A Sacramento on Thursday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    For much of spring training, Matos looked to be in good position to win an Opening Day roster spot while Austin Slater (elbow) missed time, but Slater was cleared to make a start in the outfield earlier this week at the tail end of the Giants' exhibition schedule and ended up avoiding a stint on the injured list. As a result, Matos found himself as the odd man out for a roster berth and will now head to Sacramento, where he should play on an everyday basis.

  • Giants' Luis Matos: Could take Slater's spot

    Giants manager Bob Melvin said Friday that Matos could make the Opening Day roster as Austin Slater is still having elbow issues, Brian Murphy of KNBR 680 reports.

    The signing of Jorge Soler seemed to put Matos out of a starting job and roster spot. However, with Slater out indefinitely, the Giants need another outfielder and Matos is at the top of the list. The 22-year-old has been terrific this spring, putting up a 1.013 OPS with four home runs. Matos would figure to be limited to a short-side platoon initially but could play his way into a larger role.

  • Giants' Luis Matos: Unlikely to make roster

    Matos is unlikely to make the Opening Day roster, Shayna Rubin of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    If this were a true meritocracy, Matos, who is slashing .256/.326/.615 with three home runs, one steal and an 11.6 percent strikeout rate in 43 plate appearances this spring, would likely make the team as a starter over one of Michael Conforto or Mike Yastrzemski. However, Conforto is due $18 million this year and Yastrzemski is earning $7.9 million this year via arbitration. The Giants could keep Matos on the roster in a part-time role, but Austin Slater is already ticketed for fourth outfielder duty and Tyler Fitzgerald is expected to get the final bench spot due to his defensive versatility. If an outfield spot opens up due to an injury or poor performance early in the season, Matos would be the obvious candidate to get the call.

  • Giants' Luis Matos: Could see time in center

    Matos may see time in center field until Austin Slater (elbow) is ready to play, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Previous projections had Matos as the everyday left fielder, but the addition of Jorge Soler at designated hitter will have a ripple effect with Michael Conforto needing an outfield spot on at least a platoon basis. Jung Hoo Lee still figures to get most of the time in center field, and it's possible Matos ends up functioning more like a fourth outfielder unless he wins a starting role out of camp. As long as Matos makes the team, he should be in the lineup regularly versus left-handed pitchers, though it's unclear how much manager Bob Melvin will rely on platoons to balance playing time in a deep outfield.
