MLB trade rumors: No, the Tigers are not trading for Chris Archer

Sorry, Charlie. It's not happening. In the frenzy of speculation and rumors that occur every July, most buying teams' fanbases obsess over a select few players their favorite club might be acquiring. This year, the most sought-after assets are starting pitchers. In the recent past, this has also been the case, with many buying clubs looking for rotation reinforcements. In 2014, David Price and Jon Lester, both No. 1 starters, were dealt. In 2015, Price was dealt again, along with fellow aces Johnny Cueto and Cole Hamels. This year, however, the buyers are more numerous than ever and the...

A-Rod sits against righty, to the surprise of nobody

Joe Girardi said he only found out a few hours before Saturday’s game that the Giants had flipped their starting pitchers from Jeff Samardzija to Johnny Cueto. No matter, as the manager added it didn’t impact his lineup — one that again didn’t include Alex Rodriguez against a right-hander. Rodriguez is in the midst of...

NEW YORK – Johnny Cueto pitched a shutout for the Kansas City Royals in Game 2 of the World Series last October.   Apparently, that's not enough to earn an invitation to join the team for their congratulatory visit to… Continue Reading → The post Johnny Cueto on Royals' White House snub: "They should have had the courtesy to invite me" appeared first on Giants Extra.

Buster Posey returns to lineup, Giants make a surprise pitching change

NEW YORK – One day after leaving in the fourth inning with a right foot contusion, Buster Posey is in the lineup and catching Saturday afternoon at Yankee Stadium.   So the sky hasn’t completely fallen for the Giants.

Giants flop starters for final two games at Yankee Stadium

Giants flop starters for final two games at Yankee Stadium NEW YORK — The Giants made a switcheroo without telling anybody, flopping Johnny Cueto and Jeff Samardzija so that Cueto pitches Saturday and Samardijza on Sunday at Yankee Stadium. The staff had decided on this for a while, restoring a rotation that puts the Giants’ two best pitchers back to back. The Giants staff, particularly manager Bruce Bochy, and the media-relations officials are usually very quick to provide such information. Henry Schulman is a San Francisco Chronicle staff writer.

Texas Rangers interested in Reds pitcher Anthony DeSclafani

The Reds' resident ace is being considered by a team with a deep farm system. Nice. The market for available pitchers at the moment isn't exactly in the best of shape.  This is nothing akin to last year, when each of Johnny Cueto, David Price, and Cole Hamels were on the move, yet the thirst for impact pitchers this season seems just as high among teams with eyes on the postseason. That's why it shouldn't really come as a a surprise to see Cincinnati Reds starter Anthony DeSclafani pop up in trade discussions as we barrel towards the August 1st trade deadline.  On Friday morning, that's...

Giants get two hits, still swept by Padres

Edwin Jackson shut the Giants down for most of the game, and Johnny Cueto was mortal against the Padres for the first time this season. We deserved that. The whole thing. The Giants rolled into the All-Star break with the best record in baseball, and a huge part of that was they were 9-0 against the Padres. That’s not supposed to happen. Over a nine-game stretch, the 2012 Astros could win a game against the 1927 Yankees. You: That’s because everyone in 1927 was 5’6" and malnourished. You know what I mean. It’s baseball, where every game is in doubt, regardless of who’s playing....

Giants’ stunner: swept by Padres

The well-rested Giants, owners of the majors’ best record, got to face the team they bully the most after the four-day All-Star break. The Giants’ next stops on the three-city tour are Boston and New York, a week’s worth of interleague games at a couple of jewels, Fenway Park and Yankee Stadium. Sunday’s pitching matchup was Johnny Cueto, who started the All-Star Game, against journeyman Edwin Jackson, who was released last month by the Marlins and picked up two weeks later by the Padres, his 11th big-league team.

Padres go for the sweep against their toughest 2016 opponent. The Padres have taken the first two games of the series against the Giants, but today as they go for the sweep they face their toughest challenges: Johnny Cueto and the the Sunday series finale. Edwin Jackson makes his Padres debut today. It’ll be his first Major League outing since joining the team in June, on a minor league deal.
