Reyes had a 3-hit, 2-run, 2-RBI evening to raise his season stats to .297/.337/.390 with 2 homers, 24 runs, 24 RBIs, and 12 steals.

Outfielders are taught in Little League to catch a baseball with two hands. San Francisco Giants outfielder Juan Perez didn’t adhere to that advice on Monday afternoon.
Perez was stationed in left field during San Francisco’s game against the New York Mets at Citi Field. Like many outfielders, Perez wears his sunglasses on top of his hat — not on his face. That move almost...

The Mets (52-57) lost to the Giants (59-50) by a score of 5-1 on Friday night at Citi Field.
Jon Niese got the start for the Mets and was… strange. Niese went the first 6 innings without allowing an earned run, but trailed 2-0 for most of that time due to his own error. Niese ended up allowing 5 runs (3 earned) on 9 hits in 8+ innings, walking...

When the Cardinals drafted Oscar Mercado in the 2nd Round of the 2013 MLB Draft, the consensus view of him was he had a great glove but his bat would have to improve if he were to have a future. His bat didn’t show up last year as he slashed .209/.290/.307 and struck out 21% of the time in the Gulf Coast League. Small sample size, but he’s struggled to start this year, slashing...
For the first time since 2012, the Giants enjoyed a handshake line on the field after a regular season game in Cincinnati.

The win snapped a four-game losing streak at Great American Ball Park.

This past Saturday, thousands of fans flocked to AT&T Park to take part in the annual Giants FanFest.

If only the answer was simple. In a team sport, success and failure can almost never be attributed to a single event or player’s performance. Usually, it is a combination of many things that contribute to winning and losing. In retrospect, let’s look back at the 5 biggest factors responsible for the San Francisco Giants’ fall from...
The Winter Meetings are in full-swing down in Orlando, and the San Francisco Giants have yet to land a left field bat. That’s not to say that General Manager Brian Sabean won’t bring us a power-hitter in 2014, but just in case we’re looking at a platoon of Gregor Blanco and Juan Perez in left, the biggest power positions then become the corner infield spots. Brandon Belt had...
Trivia time! This year Giants outfielders Gregor Blanco, Jeff Francoeur, Angel Pagan, Hunter Pence, Juan Perez, and Andres Torres combined for 23 outfield assists.
Can you name who led the team in outfield assists? Was it Pence, who played all 162 games? Francoeur or Perez, who played only a handful of games, but have cannon arms?
Hunter Pence hit his career-best 26th home run to back a shaky outing by Ryan Vogelsong and the San Francisco Giants beat the San Diego Padres 7-3 Friday night.
Brandon Belt and Juan Perez also homered for San Francisco in the first game of the season-ending series between two teams battling to stay out of the cellar in the NL West.
Vogelsong (4-6) gave up a pair of runs in the...

The Giants would prefer to be playing for more than pride this weekend. They expected so much more than that.
But at least they can rattle up to the pride recycling center and collect this: They will not join the 1998 Florida Marlins as the only defending World Series champions to finish in last place.
They were assured no worse than fourth after beating the San Diego Padres 7...
Rare is the day in sport when everybody wins when more than 50000 fans players stadium workers and all the rest are treated to goosebumps and tears that they want to spill as two great athletes are honored for all the joy they brought.
The Yankees and their fans will remember a brilliant Sunday of emotion long after they forget that the Giants won 2-1.
Imagine the memories on the...
SF Giants rookies Juan Perez, Nick Noonan, Roger Kieschnick, Johnny Monell, Ehire Adrianza, Mike Kickham, Jake Dunning and Heath Hembree dressed up (down?) like the Naked Cowboy and headed out to meet him. May be the best MLB hazing we've seen. Bravo. [LBS]

The Giants have had a forgettable season, but they made sure to make some memories during their swing through New York this week.

Most teams use the month of September to get a good look at their rookies, but the San Francisco Giants maybe received too intimate a view of their young players. There is the time-honored tradition of Major League teams to have their rookies play dress up to entertain the veterans. Well on Thursday it was the day of reckoning for the San Francisco rookies. They were in New York...

During Friday night's Giants-Dodgers game at Dodger Stadium, Juan Perez of the Giants made this absurd catch. In the bottom of the sixth inning, Dodgers catcher AJ Ellis hit a line drive to the left field corner that was slicing away from Perez, who sprinted after the ball and caught it with his left arm fully extended before stumbling, losing his balance, and tumbling into the...
