Giants notes: Peavy to disabled list, Susac recalled, Kershaw-Bumgarner matchup awaits

SAN FRANCISCO – The Giants have another hole to fill in their rotation. They finally conceded that Jake Peavy’s lower back issue was far too significant to battle through, placing the right-hander on the 15-day disabled list prior to Saturday’s… Continue Reading →

Jake Peavy sent to DL; Andrew Susac called up

Three catchers? Three catchers. After his last, miserable outing, Jake Peavy suggested his back was acting up again. Knocking over vases, banging on windows, you know. Acting up. He did his best to downplay it, but on Saturday the Giants placed him on the DL and recalled Andrew Susac. This could mean Ryan Vogelsong could take over until Matt Cain is healthy, or it could mean that Cain is progressing well enough to be in consideration for Peavy's next start. The only thing we know for certain is that Yusmeiro Petit will never ever ever ever start again. (We don't know that, really.) (Only...

Giants take eight-game losing streak into Saturday's ring ceremony

Giants' starter Jake Peavy assured that Saturday's ring ceremony will still be fun, but he wouldn't deny that the team's eight-game losing streak has taken some shine off what was supposed to be a celebratory week. “It certainly does,” Peavy… Continue Reading →

Giants lose eighth straight, pledge fealty to Diamondbacks

They're respecting the Warriors' turn in the spotlight, imo. It's time to consider that this team is truly, deeply, inescapably bad. It's not time to assume it. It's time to consider it. What would this team of truly, deeply, inescapably bad players look like? Well, there would be fill-ins. There would be Jake Peavy, likable, unassuming. I get the idea of Peavy. You saw the idea of Peavy -- it helped the Giants make the postseason last year. There's a rhythm, a groove that he finds. He was a part of the Red Sox last year as they sank into the dark matter. Then he was reborn. And he has a...

Peavy slammed, Giants lose 6-4

Padres will themselves over the Giants in the four game series finale. Expectations are the name of the game. You'd expect the Giants to win three out of their first seven games this season. That's sort of a best case scenario. And not solely because they played all seven on the road but because they played all seven short-handed... with that handedness shortening even more over those seven games due to injury. You'd expect Jake Peavy to look not only rusty coming back from DEAD ARM of all things but also because he hasn't been very good at pitching baseballs recently, save for his...

Bruce Bochy thinks the Padres should retire Jake Peavy's number 44

Barry Bloom of MLB.com was checking in with the former Padres on the current Giants roster. Jake Peavy is eager to start a game at Petco Park for the first time since he bailed on the city.  I know, I know he was "pressured" out, but let's not pretend that he didn't want out either people.  Ultimately with his no-trade clause it was his choice. Anyway, apparently Giants Manager Bruce Bochy and former 3B Coach Tim Flannery teased Peavy last season about how he deserves to have his number retired in San Diego since he is supposedly better than Randy Jones.  I don't think that's the only...

Panic or mirage? Which Yankees you should really be concerned about

In Washington, after the Nats lost a close one to the Mets, they joke, mid-sentence: “… time to panic??” In San Francisco, with Matt Cain and Jake Peavy already banged...

Matt Cain doesn't need Tommy John surgery

The MRI came back mostly clean, and Cain will miss about two weeks, according to Bruce Bochy. Matt Cain will not make his first scheduled start of 2015 because of arm issues, but the news could have been worse. It's not a torn ligament but a flexor tendon strain. The prescription is some DL time and rest. Dr. James Andrews can stay in his blackened castle built atop piles of decaying ligaments. For now. With Jake Peavy missing a start, the Giants can either bring Yusmeiro Petit into the rotation or call up a starter to make a start or two. Possibilities from the 40-man roster include Chris...

Matt Cain gets MRI on elbow, Jake Peavy officially scratched as Giants rotation goes into full scramble mode

PHOENIX – So much for the eternal optimism of opening day. The Giants’ rotation issues are far bigger than whether Jake Peavy can pitch the second game of the season – and could have much more significant long-term ramifications. Stalwart… Continue Reading →

Padres count climbing again

San Diego starter James Shields yielded a leadoff single to the Los Angeles Dodgers’ Jimmy Rollins Monday as the Padres no no-hitter count climbed for the first time in about six months, reaching 7,329 regular season games. The Padres, home since 1969 to such great pitchers like Randy Jones, Jake Peavy and Clay Kirby, are …

Giants might open season with temporary six-man rotation

The arrangement would allow Jake Peavy and his dead arm more time to prepare for the season.The Giants have depth, alright. The bigger question is if anyone can tell difference between the six starters after Madison Bumgarner, but the Giants have depth, and they're a-gonna use it. GM Bobby Evans -- which is totally not weird to type or anything -- was on the radio with Jim Bowden, and he mentioned there's a chance that Ryan Vogelsong will start the second game of the season. Bobby Evans GM #Giants just told us they may have Ryan Vogelsong start game #2 instead of Peavy to give him more...

SF Giants might have Vogelsong start for Peavy

Giants general manager Bobby Evans just said on MLB Network radio that the club could have Ryan Vogelsong pitch in place of a struggling Jake Peavy in the second game of the season in Arizona on Tuesday. The idea is to give Peavy more time to prepare his arm. Peavy would then pitch in San Diego, a friendlier park for pitchers, as a sixth starter for this first time through the rotation. Peavy said late in spring he was dealing with “dead arm.” He did not look good in his final start there, or in his game at AT&T Park on Thursday night. Vogelsong has been stretched out long enough

Extra Baggs: Matt Cain's elbow handles the adrenaline, Peavy has a dead arm, Panik and Pagan percolate, etc.

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – The time will come very soon when the Giants require clean innings from their starting pitchers. The time will end very soon when anyone can feel good about giving up three runs in four innings. But Cactus… Continue Reading →
