Will Giants’ Affeldt and Casilla be back in 2016? Plus Cain thoughts

With the 2015 season waning, one starts to reflect on the players who might be wearing a Giants uniform for the last time. Another is Jeremy Affeldt, who went on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday after another off-field injury. Affeldt's most memorable moment as a Giant was Game 6 of the 2010 National League Championship Series in Philadelphia, the pennant-clinching win, when he pitched two hitless innings and calmed the game for the Giants after Jonathan Sanchez blew up in his two-inning start. The other postseason bookend was Game 7 of the last year's World Series, when, as the only true...

Affeldt lands on DL after another odd injury

The Giants placed Affeldt on the 15-day disabled list and recalled reliever Mike Broadway from Triple-A Sacramento. Affeldt returned home for the Giants’ day off because he won’t see his family for the final five weeks of the season. The next spring, in April 2012, he hurt his right knee picking up one of his sons. Affeldt said doctors told him the knee is fine structurally and it’s possible he could return in two-plus weeks. Affeldt has struggled this season, posting a 2-2 record and 5.46 ERA in 44 appearances. The Giants have leaned more on fellow left-handed relievers Javier...

Giants notes: Jeremy Affeldt "embarrassed" after another off-field injury puts him on DL, Joe Panik won't be back for Dodgers series, etc.

Giants place Jeremy Affeldt on 15-day DL (playing with kids)

Michael Broadway is back in the bigs after Affeldt reinjured his wonky knee in a very, very Affeldt kind of way. The story is that Jeremy Affeldt is on the disabled list with a subluxation of his left patella, which is part of the pulleys and strings inside the knee, and right-hander Michael Broadway was recalled from Sacramento to take his place. The lede is that, dang it, Jeremy Affeldt, stop getting hurt in weird ways. This makes at least three times now. 2011 - out for season (separating frozen hamburger patties with a knife) 2012 - 15-day DL (playing with kids) 2013 - 15-day DL...

Have Jeremy Affeldt and Javier Lopez serve you coffee on Friday

Need a reward for getting through the week? The new Giants Clubhouse Blend at Peet’s. (Peet’s Coffee/Courtesy) Giants pitchers Jeremy Affeldt and Javier Lopez will be serving drinks at two San Francisco Peet’s locations on Friday. Lopez will be at the Peet’s on 2080 Chestnut St. from noon to 1 p.m., and Affeldt will be at the Ferry Building Peet’s from noon to 1 p.m. Presumably they’re there to hand off drinks to customers, but maybe they’re both secretly incredible baristas. The appearance is a promotion for Peet’s new SF Giants coffee blend which you can read more about...
