Throw that one in the overflowing “throw it in the forgettable bin” bin. The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game We learned over the weekend that Devin Mesoraco won’t be ready to join the Opening Day roster for the Cincinnati Reds since he’s simply not yet in game shape, which means Rule 5 Draft selection Stuart Turner has a phenomenal chance of making the team on day one. Despite having never played above AA - and despite facing off against San Francisco Giants ace Madison Bumgarner on Monday - Turner continued his impressive spring, thumping a long dinger on a day when...

Madison Bumgarner has the right attitude about his contract

Madison Bumgarner could have been a lot richer. But the Giants could have been in a pickle, too. Jon Heyman talked to Madison Bumgarner recently about the possibility of a new contract, as well as his thoughts on the original, bargain contract. There were no updates on the new contract (the Giants still have him under team control for 2018 and 2019 if they want), but there were new words about how Bumgarner feels about his current contract: When asked whether he regrets such a long deal at such an early stage, Bumgarner says, without hesitation, “No, absolutely not. I wasn’t going to...

Giants’ Bumgarner, Cueto on different roads to 2017 season

The Giants’ aces were in separate places for different showcases. While Madison Bumgarner was pitching six scoreless innings in front of a packed crowd at Scottsdale Stadium no Wednesday, Johnny Cueto quietly threw 32/3 shutout innings in front of a few dozen folks at the Giants’ minor-league complex. “Really, all it comes down to is getting your arm in shape to throw 100-plus pitches and making sure everything’s starting to get sharp,” Bumgarner said after shutting down an Angels lineup featuring Mike Trout and Albert Pujols. The plan for Bumgarner, in his fifth start, was to...

FanGraphs puts two Giants prospects in top-100 list

They also give us an idea of how much that might be worth. The good folks at FanGraphs have released their top-100 prospects list, and before we get to the Giants on the list, it’s probably a good time to round up how the organization has fared on other top-100 lists. MLB, 2 (Tyler Beede, #88, and Christian Arroyo, #89) ESPN/Keith Law, 1 (Beede, #62) Minor League Ball, 1 (Beede, #82) Baseball America, 1 (Beede, #89) Baseball Prospectus, 0 It’s not the best showing, no. We’re a long way from 2010, when Buster Posey and Madison Bumgarner were both in the top-10 of some lists, but...

Johnny Cueto makes a double debut — one for the Giants, and one for his dad

Ailing father is with pitcher in Arizona and will live with him in San Francisco this season, WBC may be out

Giants’ Bumgarner, Cueto on target to open season

Manager Bruce Bochy arranged his spring training rotation so that Cueto, who’ll make his first Cactus League start Saturday at Scottsdale Stadium, follows Bumgarner. Bumgarner made his fourth start Friday and gave up two unearned runs in four innings in the Giants’ 7-6 loss to Cleveland. Cueto will pitch one inning, two at the most. “He’s got time to get ready,” Bochy said of Cueto, who was late to training camp because he was with his ill father but threw batting practices in the Dominican. Two outs into Bumgarner’s final inning, third baseman Gordon Beckham made a fielding...
