  • Giants' Hayden Birdsong: Starting second game of twin bill

    Birdsong has been confirmed as the starter for the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Rockies, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    Birdsong was sent to the minors even after striking out 12 while limiting the Rockies to two runs in six innings at Coors Field this past weekend. He'll make a second straight start against Colorado on Saturday, with this one coming at Oracle Park. Birdsong is likely to be sent back to the minors again no matter how he fares Saturday, presumably Alex Cobb (hip) gets through his final rehab start with no issues.

  • Giants' Jordan Hicks: Move to bullpen imminent

    The Giants are planning to move Hicks to the bullpen and could do so as soon as this weekend, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    Hicks made his last start on 11 days' rest but still struggled, yielding four runs on three hits and five walks with seven strikeouts over 3.2 innings in a loss to the Dodgers on Tuesday. He needed 92 pitches to cover his 3.2 frames and admitted again after the outing that his body feels "a little worn down." Hicks could get one more start Sunday, but if that happens he's expected to throw only three innings or so. The right-hander's conversion from reliever to starter began with a bang as he posted a 2.33 ERA and 48:19 K:BB over 58 innings in his first 11 starts. Since then, though, he's managed just a 6.42 ERA and 42:22 K:BB across 40.2 frames covering nine starts. Hicks' 98.2 innings are already his career high by 21 frames. He will move to short relief soon, but the Giants plan to put Hicks back in the rotation in 2025.

  • Giants' Michael Conforto: Not starting against lefty

    Conforto isn't in the Giants' lineup for Thursday's game against the Dodgers, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    With southpaw Clayton Kershaw (shoulder) slated to take the mound for the first time this season, the lefty-hitting Conforto will take a seat on the bench to begin Thursday's contest. Derek Hill will fill the open spot in left field while batting ninth.

  • Giants' LaMonte Wade: Resting versus lefty

    Wade isn't in the Giants' lineup for Thursday's game against the Dodgers, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Left-hander Clayton Kershaw (shoulder) will be making his season debut Thursday, so the lefty-hitting Wade will step out of the lineup. David Villar will fill in at first base and bat sixth.

  • Giants' David Villar: Returns to majors

    The Giants recalled Villar from Triple-A Sacramento on Thursday.

    With Wilmer Flores (knee) headed for the injured list, the Giants will call upon Villar to provide the team with additional depth at first base. In six games with San Francisco this season, the 27-year-old has gone 5-for-17 with a home run and four RBI, and he's also posted an .857 OPS through 311 plate appearances in Triple-A. He'll presumably serve as the Giants' primary option at first base against left-handed pitching until Flores returns from the IL.

  • Giants' Wilmer Flores: Headed back to IL

    The Giants placed Flores on the 10-day injured list Thursday with right knee tendinitis, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    Flores just returned from the same injury a little over two weeks ago, but it appears he might not have ever totally recovered from the issue. He'll be eligible for activation in early August, but the Giants might take things slower this time in hopes that Flores can get over the hump with the injury.

  • Giants' Brett Wisely: Picks up second steal

    Wisely went 1-for-4 with a stolen base in Wednesday's 8-3 win over the Dodgers.

    Wisely has offered little in production in July with no home runs, three RBI, two runs scored and one steal on three attempts over 17 games. The infielder also has a 2:17 BB:K this month. He's been better, as evidenced by his .268/.301/.396 slash line for the year over 174 plate appearances. The emergence of Tyler Fitzgerald at shortstop has left Wisely to compete with Thairo Estrada for playing time at second base, a situation where Wisely has the platoon advantage.

  • Giants' Mike Yastrzemski: Two hits, stolen base in win

    Yastrzemski went 2-for-3 with two RBI, a stolen base and a run scored in Wednesday's win over the Dodgers. He also drew a walk and was hit by a pitch.

    Yastrzemski walked in his first trip to the plate before adding an RBI single and a steal in the fourth to put the Giants up 2-1. He drove in another run in the eighth and went on to reach four times in the contest, increasing his average to .326 (15-for-46) in July. It marked the outfielder's fifth multi-hit performance this month and fourth in his last 10 games, while the stolen base was just his second of the season.

  • Giants' Matt Chapman: Reaches four times in win

    Chapman went 2-for-3 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Wednesday's win over the Dodgers while also drawing two walks.

    Chapman walked in his first at-bat before launching a leadoff homer in the fourth to tie the game at one run apiece. The third baseman would go on to reach base four times in the contest while also driving in multiple runs for only the second time this month. Following the two-hit performance, Chapman is still batting just .190 (12-for-63) in July with three homers, six RBI and 14 runs scored. He's also recorded at least one walk in three straight games.

  • Giants' Robbie Ray: Impresses in return

    Ray (1-0) earned the win over the Dodgers on Wednesday, surrendering one run on two walks over five innings while not allowing any hits. He struck out eight and also hit two batters.

    Ray struggled with his command in the first inning, allowing two walks while also hitting two batters with pitches, which led to a run coming home for the Dodgers. However, the veteran lefty came back strong in the second, striking out the side en route to hurling four consecutive 1-2-3 innings. Ray certainly impressed in his first start since undergoing Tommy John Surgery over a year ago, inducing 22 swings and misses on the night. He'll look to carry that momentum into his next outing, which is expected to come at home against Oakland next week.

  • Giants' Thairo Estrada: Not starting Wednesday

    Estrada isn't in the Giants' lineup Wednesday versus the Dodgers, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Estrada went 0-for-2 during Tuesday's loss and will now sit down for the third time in San Francisco's last four games. Brett Wisely will fill the void at second base and bat ninth.

  • Giants' Patrick Bailey: Getting breather Wednesday

    Bailey isn't in the Giants' lineup for Wednesday's game against the Dodgers, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Bailey will take a seat against Tyler Glasnow and the Dodgers after going 0-for-4 during a loss in Tuesday's contest. Curt Casali will start behind the plate instead while batting eighth.

  • Giants' Keaton Winn: Moves to 60-day IL

    The Giants transferred Winn (elbow) to the 60-day injured list Wednesday.

    Winn was shut down from throwing Monday after experiencing discomfort in his right elbow. His move to the 60-day IL will officially keep him out until at least Aug. 21, though the team may opt to shut him down for the season if he doesn't show signs of improvement.

  • Giants' Randy Rodriguez: Sent to Triple-A

    The Giants optioned Rodriguez to Triple-A Sacramento on Wednesday.

    With Robbie Ray (elbow) returning from the IL to start Wednesday's game against the Dodgers, Rodriguez will be left without a spot on the Giants' pitching staff. The 24-year-old joined the big-league bullpen in early May and posted a 4.19 ERA and 1.16 WHIP while striking out 44 batters through his first 43 career MLB innings.

  • Giants' Luis Matos: Optioned to Sacramento

    The Giants optioned Matos to Triple-A Sacramento on Wednesday.

    Matos will end up as the odd man out of the Giants' outfield after the team claimed Derek Hill off waivers from Texas on Tuesday. Matos slashed .208/.222/.340 with four RBI in 54 plate appearances after his promotion from Triple-A on June 22, and he will be a likely candidate to return to San Francisco should the team's outfield depth be tested later in the season.

  • Giants' Derek Hill: Joins active roster

    The Giants activated Hill on Wednesday.

    San Francisco claimed Hill off waivers from the Rangers on Tuesday, and he'll now officially join the MLB roster, replacing Luis Matos. The 28-year-old Hill slashed .256/.289/.465 with three homers and five RBI in 45 plate appearances during his time with Texas and played all three outfield positions after working exclusively as a center fielder in past seasons.

  • Giants' Robbie Ray: Activated ahead of start

    The Giants reinstated Ray (elbow) from the 60-day injured list Wednesday ahead of his start versus the Dodgers.

    Wednesday will mark Ray's first major-league start since he underwent Tommy John surgery in May 2023. He began a rehab assignment June 4 and has since posted a 3.38 ERA and 0.85 WHIP alongside a 45:6 K:BB across 29.1 innings in 10 games (nine starts). The 32-year-old southpaw reached 78 pitches during his latest outing with Triple-A Sacramento, though he could still be held to a pitch/innings restriction as he faces MLB hitters for the first time in nearly 16 months. Randy Rodriguez was optioned to Sacramento, and Keaton Winn (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day IL in corresponding moves.
