Casilla puts in extra work for 100th save

Since any milestone worth having is worth working for, it seemed fitting that Santiago Casilla took a longer path than usual to secure his 100th career save in the Giants' 5-4 decision Monday over the San Diego Padres.

Santiago Casilla, Bullpen Struggling As San Francisco Giants Enter Crucial Stretch

(AP Photo/John Amis) As the San Francisco Giants enter a tough August schedule, one that has the team facing nothing but playoff contending clubs over the next 25 games, the offense remains as hot as the temperatures the Giants will be playing in this month. The same can’t be said for the pitching, or more accurately the bullpen, which has struggled for most of the season, as...

Giants' Casilla pitches 'immaculate' inning

Santiago Casilla needed only nine pitches to record a save on Sunday in the Giants’ win over the Reds. Each of those nine pitches were strikes, and they led to strikeouts of three consecutive batters. The act of three strikeouts on three pitches each constitutes an “immaculate” inning. It’s a rare feat, but not as rare as accomplishments like perfect games or four-homer games...

Bullpen Report, Week 14

Like typical closenado news and happenings, it comes in spurts.  The White Sox, Giants, and the Angels all made changes this past week.  All changes were needed, but only one team, the Giants, look like they will try something new and not return to the original status quo.  Sergio Romo is a proven and decent closer, but he's overused, predictable, and doesn't throw very hard...

Giants P Santiago Casilla injures himself trying to beat out infield single (GIF)

Like most other relief pitchers, Santiago Casilla has had very few at-bats during his career. On Thursday night, the San Francisco Giants righthander experienced the fifth plate appearance of his career and first since 2012. The Giants probably wish they replaced him with a pinch hitter. With San Francisco leading 5-1, Casilla chopped a ground […]
