After another rough series over the weekend, the Giants continue to look for wins as the New York Mets come to AT&T Park on Monday Night.
First item of business: Joaquin Arias was placed on the 15-day disabled list after an emergency appendix removal. Nick Noonan was called up as replacement.
The All-Star Game was a popular topic on Monday night. Manager Bruce Bochy admitted that he knows which way he’s leaning as far as starting pitcher goes, but he wouldn’t say who he was leaning towards.
As far as tonight’s starter, Matt Harvey, goes, Bochy said this game wouldn’t play a big part in his decision: “This kid’s had a special year. I know he’s from New York, so all that’s been discussed but I’ll leave it at that.”
Bochy said he hoped to see Hunter Pence in the All Star club next week.
“This isn’t by any means just the case where you’re putting the Giant on there. He’s had some pretty good numbers, so I’m hopeful he’ll make the club,” said the Giants skipper.
