The San Francisco Giants began with a promising injury update but ended with worrisome news about Jeremy Affeldt on Saturday night. Good news first: Ryan Vogelsong threw to Shawon Dunston and Roberto Kelly with results that satisfied manager Bruce Bochy at AT&T Park. After 35 off the mound and 40 in the bullpen, Vogelsong said he felt good. He could start pitching to hitters in the Arizona Rookie League as early as Tuesday and is still on pace to return to the team in early August. Brandon Crawford was out of the starting lineup today, more due to his collision with Heath Bell on Friday night than right handed opponent. However he was able to pinch hit in the bottom of the sixth and remain at short for the rest of the game. Several members of the Giants bullpen got banged up on Friday night. Sandy Rosario was drilled in the hand but X-Rays came out negative. Sergio Romo was knocked by a hit up the middle off the bat of Paul Goldschmidt but didn’t require a trainer to come check ...

Source: Jennifer Stewart/Getty Images North America The San Francisco Giants expect to be without reliever Jeremy Affeldt for four to six weeks.

The Giants will be left with Javier Lopez and...

Giants simply must play better or else

As I write this, the Giants sit within striking distance of the NL West at 5.5 GB. They're still 7 games under .500, and they still aren't hitting on all cylinders, but they're alive. With Timmy's no-hitter heading into the break and grabbing 2 of 3 to open the "so-called second half" (as Dave Flemming would put it) against Arizona, things appear to be...

Brian Wilson to throw for teams Thursday; considered 'MLB ready'

After undergoing his second Tommy John surgery last year, Brian Wilson is trying to make a comeback to the big leagues. He has thrown for his former team, the San Francisco Giants and reportedly looked very good.

Lincecum hopes to build on first career no-hitter

Tim Lincecum has tweaked his delivery, altered his workload between starts, changed his diet, and even his hair, trying just about anything in recent years to rediscover his old Cy Young form. Maybe his first career no-hitter will do the trick at last. The two-time NL Cy Young Award winner will pitch again Monday night for the Giants against the Cincinnati Reds, giving the home...

Phillies To Watch Former San Francisco Giants Brian Wilson Pitch

Wikipedia Commons Brian Wilson helped the San Francisco Giants beat the Phillies in the 2010 NLCS en route to a World Series Championship. But Wilson has fallen since then, succumbing to a second Tommy John surgery in April 2012. Wilson is now on the comeback trail and looking for a...

Brian Wilson throws for Righetti, Giants

The most famously bearded relief pitcher in Giants history threw another session off a mound on Monday, but that wasn’t the most interesting part. It was the guests in attendance. Giants pitching coach Dave Righetti stood in the batter’s box for most of the session, held at the University of San Francisco, a source tells CSN Bay Area. Giants bullpen catcher Billy Hayes caught...

Reunion by the Bay? Giants keeping tabs on Brian Wilson

Is Brian Wilson headed back to the San Francisco Giants? It's a possibility, anyway. “We’ve kept the door open the whole time,” assistant GM Bobby Evans told the San Francisco Chronicle. The three-time All-Star threw twice recently at the University of San Francisco in front of Giants pitching coach Dave Righetti and bullpen catcher Bill Hayes. The team thinks Wilson...

Gaudin Silences DBacks, Giants Start Second Half With A Win

Two runs were enough for the San Francisco Giants as they gained a game on their division rival and won 2-0 over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday night. The Giants offense started the second half of the season by putting their offense on the board early. Buster Posey doubled in Gregor Blanco, then scored on an RBI single from Hunter Pence. No more runs were scored for the rest...

Trade Talk

You know, I usually end up in last place because of my personal reluctance to trade based on hot and cold streaks. Like in real life, I figure you shouldn’t do that too much, but I probably could get a bit better at it. But the Giants…well, there you’ve got a next season to be thinking about.  But is it time to give up on this season?  And is there anything people want in...

Reds first to face Lincecum since no-hitter

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Tim Lincecum has tweaked his delivery, altered his workload between starts, changed his diet, and even his hair, trying just about anything in recent years to rediscover his old Cy Young form. Maybe his first career no-hitter will do the trick at last. "I think any time you throw that well, which he's been throwing the ball well even before that, should...

Most Epic Troll Award Ever

Okay, so the stats will officially count this as a home game, so final splits will show that the Giants played 82 games at home and 80 on the road. And in reality, of course, the game is being played in San Francisco. So apparently this is just like an Elseworlds one-shot baseball game, where the home team wears grey and bats first. … Beats the majority of alternate uniforms around...

Lincecum rocked in his first start since no-hitter, Giants fall to Reds in series opener

Tim Lincecum got shelled, Bronson Arroyo was brilliant, and the Reds scored in each of the first seven innings on their way to route the Giants 11-0 in the first game of the series. It didn’t take long for the Reds to end Lincecum’s bid for another no-hitter, as Shin-Soo Choo led off the game with a double, and Derrick Robinson followed it up with a single. Lincecum struck out...

Giants top Reds in Game 2

The Reds split a doubleheader with the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday night. But when you lose Game 2 in a long frustrating fashion, the split doesn't feel so even. "Long day," Reds manager Dusty Baker said. "Real long day." The Reds beat the San Francisco Giants 9-3 in Game 1 and fell 5-3 in Game 2 before a crowd of 42,310 at AT&T Park. In Game 2...

Guy gets roughed up pretty good by AT&T Park security after running on field (video)

During Monday’s game between the San Francisco Giants and Cincinnati Reds at AT&T Park, a couple of young men stormed the field and proceeded to run around the outfield along the warning track.
