6/27/2016 | Giants could let Bumgarner hit in lieu of DH

An intriguing issue was raised Monday, but not answered: Will the Giants scrap using a designated hitter when Madison Bumgarner starts Thursday at Oakland and let the adept-hitting pitcher take his cuts instead?

6/27/2016 | Gearrin has found home in Giants bullpen

Cory Gearrin continues to be a valuable piece of the Giants' bullpen this season. After recovering from Tommy John surgery in 2014 while a member of the Atlanta Braves, Gearrin has finally established himself as a big leaguer.


6/27/2016 | Posey nipping at Yadi's heels for All-Star start

The race between Buster Posey and Yadier Molina is dramatic, as theirs remains the closest race in the 2016 Esurance MLB All-Star Game Ballot voting for next month's All-Star Game, with Molina (1,568,930) holding a slight edge on Posey (1,563,800) among National League catchers in the latest balloting update announced Monday.


6/27/2016 | Yanks' Judge leads Prospect Team of the Week

Aaron Judge seems to have solved Triple-A pitching in June. He's hitting a robust .345/.467/.701 with more homers (eight) and walks (17) than he had in his first two months of this season combined. He led the Minors with five homers and 29 total bases last week, and he could take over in right field for New York should the Yankees go into sell mode and trade the resurgent Carlos Beltran.


6/27/2016 | Ever-tightening All-Star races going to the wire

Entering the final 72 hours of the 2016 Esurance MLB All-Star Game Ballot, it seems increasingly likely that Major League Baseball's tradition of surprising late-surge selections will continue as fans decide the starting position players for the 87th All-Star Game presented by MasterCard on July 12 in San Diego.


6/26/2016 | Batting 2nd, Pagan piles up hits vs. Phillies

Angel Pagan batted in the two-hole in the Giants' 8-7 win against the Philadelphia Phillies at AT&T Park on Sunday and went 4-for-5 with two RBIs and three runs, serving as the primary catalyst for the Giants in a game in which they needed every bit of offense they could get.


6/26/2016 | Giants walk off for NL-best 49th victory

Conor Gillaspie's one-out double broke a ninth-inning tie Sunday to lift the San Francisco Giants to an 8-7 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies. The decision gave Giants manager Bruce Bochy his 800th career win, making him the franchise's fourth skipper to reach that level, and gave San Francisco its National League-high 49th victory.


6/26/2016 | Giants, A's renew spirited Battle of the Bay

The San Francisco Giants and Oakland Athletics have headed in different directions this year. While the Giants have enjoyed one of their best stretches in franchise history as of late, the A's sit more than 10 games outside of the division lead in the American League West. Yet that may not be an accurate predictor of the upcoming Bay Bridge Series.


6/26/2016 | Cain close to starting rehab assignment

Right-hander Matt Cain, who hasn't pitched for the Giants since June 13, could be ready to make an injury rehabilitation appearance by late next week, manager Bruce Bochy said Sunday.

Cameron Rupp's two-run home run in the seventh inning Saturday abruptly concluded Madison Bumgarner's night and also ended the Giants ace's 12-game streak of allowing two earned runs or fewer. The last time he'd given up more was April 15 at Dodger Stadium.


6/25/2016 | Joseph's visit to SF brings career full circle

Philadelphia Phillies first baseman Tommy Joseph was ruled out of Thursday's game against the Minnesota Twins because of a cold. But, as Joseph noted before Saturday's game against the San Francisco Giants, it was going to take much more than a minor illness to keep him from playing this weekend against the club that drafted him.


6/25/2016 | Cueto looking to find success against Phillies

Johnny Cueto has pitched at an All-Star rate throughout the season and has only seemed to improve as the season wears on. He's 6-0 with a 1.05 ERA in his last seven starts. He'll be on the mound Sunday as the San Francisco Giants look to finish the series on a winning note against Aaron Nola and the Philadelphia Phillies at AT&T Park.


6/25/2016 | Belt becomes latest bases-loaded hero

Remaining consistent, even when the opportunity arises to generate multiple runs with one swing, has helped the Giants thrive in these instances. The latest example occurred in Friday night's seventh inning, when Brandon Belt's three-run double fueled a four-run outburst that hastened the Giants' 5-4 triumph over the Phillies.


6/25/2016 | Moncada among top prospect performers Friday

The milestones keep coming for Yoan Moncada. The No. 5 overall prospect connected on his first Double-A home run on Friday night as part of another multi-hit performance, but it wasn't enough to keep Portland from losing to Reading, 11-3. Moncada's homer, a solo shot in the fourth inning, was his fifth of the season.


6/25/2016 | Bumgarner leads streaking Giants vs. Phillies

Giants ace Madison Bumgarner has been fantastic most of the season, but he has been particularly impressive the past few weeks as he heads into Saturday night's matchup with the Phillies in the second game of a three-game series at AT&T Park. After winning the series opener, the Giants have won 31 of their last 40 games, their best 40-game stretch since 1954, when they were the New York Giants.


6/25/2016 | Giants rally for best 40-game stretch since '54

6/24/2016 | Giants use LGBT Night to help Orlando victims

The San Francisco Giants hosted their 14th annual LGBT Night on Friday at AT&T Park, an event in which the organization celebrates San Francisco Pride Weekend while also recognizing the Bay Area's LGBT community.

6/24/2016 | Berrios, Judge among top prospect performers Thursday
