SANTIAGO CASILLA RUMORS

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...

Giants News: Santiago Casilla named closer after third save

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 […]

Giants Beat Rox 5-1, Cain And Casilla Exit With Hamstring Injuries

With Coors Field and a brewing NL West rivalry in the mix, you knew you were in for an exciting game. While the Giants’ bats certainly gave fans something to cheer about, the 5-1 win over the Rockies didn’t come without consequence as injuries continue to plague the Giants.
