Your browser does not support iframes. San Francisco Giants utility outfielder Gregor Blanco didn’t play one game in the big leagues during the 2011 season after appearing in only 49 games as a member of the Kansas City Royals in 2010. But with his pro career resurrected with the San Francisco Giants, he’s making darn [...]

Sandoval injured, Gillaspie recalled; the injuries begin

Pictured above: Brandon Belt breaking Pablo Sandoval's left hand. Another reason to ride the bench. Reports are revealing Giants third baseman and power hitter Pablo Sandoval has broken his hamate bone in his left hand from last nights loss to the Marlins. Sandoval has been one of the brightest spots for the Giants this season, leading the team in runs(16), home runs(5), RBI...

A look at what Giants are on pace for in 2012

Freaky Friday: featuring Barry Zito and Tim Lincecum. So far, the Giants have played in 23 games (not including tonight’s game against the Marlins) and have their fare share of hot and cold starts. In the month of April, the Giants had a rough start but found their groove to earn a 12-10 record. The brightest spot of the giants so far is their offense averaging a hair under four...

Giants' Pablo Sandoval out 4-6 weeks

Pablo Sandoval has a broken bone in his left hand that will require surgery, and the San Francisco slugger is expected to miss four to six weeks. The free-swinging switch-hitter broke his right hamate bone in late April last year and had surgery, then it happened again to the other hand in recent days and he aggravated it swinging left-handed in Wednesday's 3-2, 10-inning loss...

Bochy fears Sandoval has a serious hand injury

It wasn't a happy ending for San Francisco Giants fans. First, their team rallied to tie the Miami Marlins 2-2 in the ninth inning Wednesday, only to lose in the 10th on Giancarlo Stanton's homer off Santiago Casilla. Then came the news about Pablo Sandoval, delivered by manager Bruce Bochy, who strongly hinted Sandoval has a pretty bad left hand injury. "There...

Pablo Sandoval Headed for the Disabled List

Led by Buster Posey and Pablo Sandoval, the San Francisco Giants offense has actually been decent this year. Their 95 wRC+ ranks them 8th in the National League, thanks in large part to the contributions of Buster Posey (.342/.400/.575) and Pablo Sandoval (.316/.375/.537). Melky Cabrera has been good, and the team has gotten production from the Brandon Belt/Brett Pill platoon when...

SF Giants Rumors: Sandoval, Gillaspie, Huff, Pagan and Cabrera

It’s been a few days since the last post on SF Giants Rumors. A lot has changed since then as well.   The San Francisco Giants have managed to get swept by the Marlins, and Pablo Sandoval is now on the DL with a broken hamate bone. This is the 2nd time Sandoval has broken his hamate bone in the last 2 seasons. Last year he was sidelined for 6 weeks with this injury on the opposite...

Report: Giants' Sandoval has fractured hamate bone

San Francisco Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval has broken the hamate bone in his left hand, according to multiple reports in the Bay Area. Sandoval was hurt swinging the bat in a 3-2 loss to Miami Wednesday. He left the game in the seventh inning.

POSTGAME RECAP: Giants Play One Inning, Lose

The Marlins can’t hit. The Giants can’t hit. Fortunately, getting a hit isn’t the only way to reach base. Someone alert Sir Bam Bam. Eleven Marlins reached base without getting a hit. Ten walks, one reached on an error. See, it’s easy! Zito didn’t have a good game. This is a disgusting understatement. But since it is his first hiccup of the year, I’ll leave the jokes...

Scoring Hits the Breaks as Injuries Accelerate

The San Francisco Giants have apparently found a cure for run scoring fever. Apparently it involves getting a lot of rest during every half inning of every game, and making more frequent visits to the medical clinic.The numbers, as they often do, speak volumes: the first 16 games of the season saw the Giants scoring 4.44 runs per game, a full run per game higher than their disastrous...

Marlins Sweep the Giants

On the day it was announced that Pablo Sandoval would miss the next six weeks with a broken hamate bone in his left hand, the Giants didn’t do much to raise spirits. In fact, these last three games against the Marlins have featured some pretty shoddy baseball on their part: The Giants scored five runs this series. They managed to strand 23 baserunners in this three-game set....

Marlins topple Giants for three-game sweep

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Hanley Ramirez drove in a pair of runs without a hit to back Anibal Sanchez's first win in four starts, and the Miami Marlins rebounded from a rough stretch for a 3-2 victory over the San Francisco Giants on Thursday and a three-game sweep. Giancarlo Stanton doubled in the seventh after he homered in three of his previous four games. Stanton has nine doubles...

Brandon Belt should gain waiver steam

Welcome to the latest edition of "Free Agent Frenzy," which will try to steer you in the right direction when trying to fill roster spots. Note: Ownership percentages below are from leagues. We'll try to stick to the general rule that no player will appear twice in Free Agent Frenzy during a four-week period. Catcher Standard Leagues: My dad called...


I was aware of the streak. The fact never escaped me that the Giants hadn’t led in a game since before Lady Bird Johnson was a sexual position. And with a 1-0 deficit early in the game, it appeared I may have to turn the “We’re Going Streaking” section into an exercise in futility. Not today. 3-10 with runners in scoring position. Posey singles with a runner on third and...
