  • Giants' Spencer Bivens: Optioned to Sacramento

    The Giants optioned Bivens to Triple-A Sacramento on Saturday.

    The move is to make room on the 26-man roster for left-hander Kyle Harrison (ankle), who is starting Saturday against the Guardians. Bivens appeared in seven games for the Giants after his contract was selected June 16, posting a 2.65 ERA and 1.12 WHIP over 17 innings while working as a spot starter and bulk reliever out of the bullpen.

  • Giants' Spencer Bivens: Tosses three innings

    Bivens allowed a run on four hits and a walk over three frames in a no-decision Friday. He struck out two during the win over Cleveland.

    Bivens entered the game in the second inning and was tagged with a solo homer by Josh Naylor in the fourth. Over his last five outings, Bivens has given up two runs in 12 innings, dropping his season ERA to 2.65 through 17 frames. He should continue working as a bulk reliever or spot starter as necessary.

  • Giants' Spencer Bivens: Likely to work in bulk relief

    Bivens is expected to serve as a bulk reliever behind opening pitcher Erik Miller in Friday's game against the Guardians, Shayna Rubin of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Bivens tossed five innings of one-run ball in his first MLB start in his most recent appearance this past Sunday against the Dodgers, but he'll be available out of the bullpen for what's essentially his second turn through the rotation. The right-hander will most likely shift into a more traditional bullpen role after Friday, as the Giants should get one or both of Kyle Harrison (ankle) or Blake Snell (groin) back from the injured list by next week.

  • Giants' Spencer Bivens: Picks up win in first MLB start

    Bivens (2-1) was the pitcher of record in Sunday's 10-4 win over the Dodgers, striking out three over five innings while allowing one earned run on four hits and no walks.

    Thrust into the rotation for his first MLB start, Bivens rolled through four shutout frames before coughing up a solo shot to Chris Taylor in the fifth inning. Since he was pitching on just two days' rest, Bivens wasn't expected to work especially deep into Sunday's outing, but he was efficient enough (41 strikes on 60 pitches) to cover five innings and qualify for the win. With the Giants designating de facto No. 5 starter Spencer Howard for assignment prior to Sunday's game, Bivens could stick around in the rotation until the likes of Kyle Harrison (ankle) and Blake Snell (groin) return from the injured list.

  • Giants' Spencer Bivens: Opening Sunday's game

    Bivins will serve as the Giants' opening pitcher for Sunday's game against the Dodgers, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    The right-hander has made five appearances since he received his first call-up to the majors in mid-June, and he'll make his first big-league start Sunday versus Los Angeles. Bivens last pitched Thursday versus the Cubs and covered one inning, and he's topped out at 49 pitches since joining the Giants. He should be able to provide some length but likely won't handle a full starter's workload. Slusser suggests that Landen Roupp -- whom the Giants called up from Triple-A Sacramento on Sunday -- will likely work multiple innings in relief behind Bivens.

  • Giants' Spencer Bivens: Hit with loss Wednesday

    Bivens (1-1) took the loss Wednesday as the Giants were downed 6-5 by the Cubs, giving up three runs (two earned) on five hits and two walks over two-plus innings. He struck out one.

    The Giants went with a true bullpen day Wednesday, as none of the six pitchers they deployed worked more than two innings. Bivens was the one to get tagged with the loss after serving up back-to-back homers to Ian Happ and Dansby Swanson to lead off the fourth inning during a game in which San Francisco never held a lead. Bivens has pitched five innings over two appearances this week in his first taste of big-league action, giving up three homers, and he may get shipped back to Triple-A Sacramento to make way for a fresh arm.

  • Giants' Spencer Bivens: Wins in MLB debut

    Bivens (1-0) was the pitcher of record in Sunday's 13-6 win over the Angels, covering three innings out of the bullpen while striking out four and allowing one run on one hit.

    After receiving his first MLB call-up earlier Sunday, Bivens ended up serving as the Giants' bulk reliever behind opening pitcher Erik Miller. Bivens entered the game in the second inning, and the only blemish on his final line was Nolan Schanuel's solo shot. The 29-year-old righty worked efficiently through his three innings, tossing 27 of 36 pitches for strikes. He had produced a 2.81 ERA through 41.2 frames with Triple-A Sacramento prior to his promotion.

  • Giants' Spencer Bivens: Gets call to big leagues

    The Giants selected Bivens' contract from Triple-A Sacramento on Sunday.

    Bivens hadn't been used at Sacramento since Tuesday, so he'll provide the San Francisco bullpen with a much-needed fresh arm in Sunday's series finale versus the Angels. After Kyle Harrison (ankle) was scratched from the start Sunday and placed on the 15-day injured list, lefty reliever Erik Miller will be tabbed to open the game for the Giants. Bivens has four three-inning appearances under his belt in the minors this season and will be a strong candidate to see work behind Miller. The 29-year-old righty has accrued a 2.81 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 36:16 K:BB across 41.2 innings with Sacramento this season.
