Giants’ Michael Morse goes home with cloudy future

Giants’ Michael Morse goes home with cloudy future Michael Morse, who has not played since he sustained a concussion while knocking heads with Jeff Samardzija during the Nationals-Giants brawl on Memorial Day, might not return this year. Manager Bruce Bochy said Morse has gone home to Florida to continue his recovery. Bochy did not sound encouraged when asked if the Giants might see Morse when rosters expand in September. The decision is whether to go through a full-blown rehabilitation or give up on 2017. A rehab would be complicated by the minor-league season ending on Labor Day. In...

Trade Buzz: Samardzija, Strickland, Hand, Tigers, Teheran, Mariners, Twins, Nats

The Giants are “drawing [a] fair amount of interest” in right-handed starter Jeff Samardzija and right-handed reliever Hunter Strickland, reports Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle (all Twitter links).

Jeff Samardzija pummeled, Giants drop series

The Padres had as many three-run homers in Sunday as the Giants have had all season. That seems like a problem. I mean, hell, I guess I’ll update the list from last night and take the rest of the afternoon off. Hector Sanchez home runs, by opponent1. Giants (4 in 17 plate appearances)2. Rockies: (3 in 123 PA)3. Padres: (2 in 81 PA) He’s done it! Bless him. Hector Sanchez has hit more home runs against the Giants than he’s hit against any other major league team, despite spending five seasons with them and collecting 637 plate appearances. He has fewer than 100 plate appearances in...

Mistake pitches continue to haunt Giants as they drop series at Petco

SAN DIEGO Its a problem thats been gnawing at Bruce Bochy all year. He wants his guys to pitch, not just throw, and on Sunday, it boiled over.Jeff Samardzija gave up two three-run homers in a 7-1 loss to the Padres, the second on a 96 mph fastball right across the heart of the plate on an 0-2 pitch. The Giants have given up 27 homers on two-strike pitches this year, including five in 0-2 counts. Many others like Hector Sanchezs walk-off Saturday have come on pitches that caught far too much of the plate with a base open.

Samardzija gives up 7 runs as Giants lose to Padres, 7-1

The momentum certainly has not shifted after everyone except All-Star Buster Posey took four days off to reset, refresh and re-energize. Sunday’s 7-1 loss to the Padres was over early when the hosts scored seven times off Jeff Samardzija, who coughed up three-run homers to ex-Giant Hector Sanchez and Corey Spangenberg. The Padres won two of three in a series that might have detoured the Giants as the July 31 trade deadline approaches. Johnny Cueto was placed on the disabled list with more blister problems. At least Denard Span continued to show he’s past his health issues, moving well...

There’s been speculation since the winter that Houston would look to add a veteran starter in order to boost their playoff push this year. During the early part of the season, it looked like Houston’s rotation would easily be able to survive without any reinforcements, as Dallas Keuchel and Lance McCullers Jr. got off to spectacular...
