Giants’ Belt undergoes second operation on right knee

ST. LOUIS — Giants first baseman Brandon Belt underwent surgery in San Francisco on Friday to clean up the articular cartilage and meniscus in his right knee, a procedure that he expected and should have him ready for spring training. Team orthopedist Dr. Ken Akizuki performed the surgery. Belt had had a similar operation on the same knee after 2015. Belt has said he needed four weeks to recover from that operation, but the medical staff plans to slow the rehabilitation now after a second operation on the same knee. The injury ended another incomplete season for Belt, who hit .253 with 14...

Giants’ Bumgarner wants to stay, but knows decision rests with team

SAN DIEGO — As the Giants end another disappointing season and dive into what promises to be a turbulent winter, they finally need to address one of their most critical questions in perhaps decades, which has no easy answer.

Giants win on big night for Hunter Pence

SAN DIEGO - Hunter Pence, his days a Giant down to a precious few, is not ambling slowly with a walking stick in hand. He holds a bat that he is determined to wield with the youthful zeal and pop that once made him a feared hitter. The 35-year-old whirling Dervish made that perfectly clear in Tuesday night's 5-4 victory at Petco Park, which ensured the Giants will win the season series against the last-place Padres. In two at-bats against East Bay native Joey Lucchesi, Pence homered, doubled, drove in three runs and stole a base. Only two other Giants, Ray Durham and Andrew McCutchen, had...

Giants’ Crawford details extent of knee injury, plus lineups

SAN DIEGO -Brandon Crawford believes his range at short has declined a tick because a knee injury that has dogged him for much of the season has stolen his quick first step. He could have fooled us. Crawford's defense has been exceptional again. He could be destined to his four consecutive Gold Glove. His hitting is a different matter. After a May performance worthy of National League Player of the Month, which he lost to the Reds' Scooter Gennett, Crawford raised his batting average and OPS to .338 and .921, respectively, by June 10. But those numbers have plummeted since to .255 and .715....
