      Cardinals' Mike Leake: Signs with Cardinals

      Leake agreed to a deal with the Cardinals on Tuesday, Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reports. The exact terms of the deal have yet to be confirmed, but it's expected to be in the neighborhood of five years for $75 million with an option included. Leake struggled a bit after joining the Giants midseason last year, but he's still posted a 3.70 ERA or better in three consecutive campaigns. He's never been much of a strikeout pitcher, but saw his totals drop to a career-low 5.6 K/9, but he'll get a chance to stay in the NL and figures to fill in the spot vacated when John Lackey left earlier in free agency.

      Giants SP Mike Leake pitches to contact in Wednesday shutout

      Giants starter Mike Leake (11-10) was spectacular Wednesday, twirling a complete-game shutout while allowing two hits and three walks in a win over the Dodgers. He struck out just one. Leake has been terrible in his time with the Giants, but this is the type of performance they were expecting when they traded for him. The craziest stat to go along with the one strikeout is that he drew just three swinging strikes in 104 pitches. That's hard to do and it might be a case of the Dodgers sending out a junior-varsity lineup and having a "hangover" after winning the National League West the night before. With that said, Leake is an intriguing option next season in one of the best pitchers parks in baseball.

      Giants SP Mike Leake hoping to end 2015 season strong

      Giants starter Mike Leake (10-10) allowed four runs on six hits and two walks across six innings in a loss to the A's on Friday. He struck out three and allowed two homers. It appeared Leake's value had risen exponential with the move to San Francisco at the July 31 trade deadline, but he's been struggling for the Giants. Not only has he failed to strike out more than six batters in any game, he's allowed 25 runs over his eight starts spanning 46 1/3 innings. This may be a good thing for next year, as he could become a nice value in drafts next season. His final start will be on Wednesday against the Dodgers.

      Giants SP Mike Leake to miss next start with arm tightness

      Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Saturday that starter Mike Leake experienced some arm tightness after his Sept. 13 start, Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area reports. Leake downplayed the issue, saying it's nothing he's concerned about and just something players deal with this late in the year, but it likely played a part in the decision to lift him Saturday after three innings and 49 pitches. The right-hander did not fare well in his three frames against Arizona, giving up three runs on eight hits and a walk while failing to record a strikeout. Bochy did not indicate Leake will miss his next outing.

      Giants SP Mike Leake falls short against Kershaw, Dodgers

      Giants starter Mike Leake might have won Wednesdsay night if his mound opponent had not been Clayton Kershaw. Instead, he lost in lowering his record to 9-7. But Leake had nothing to be ashamed of. He gave up just two runs on five hits over seven innings with no walks and three strikeouts. He fell behind twice, first on a Carl Crawford double in the second inning and then on a Chase Utley blast in the sixth. Leake bounced back nicely from a subpar performance Thursday against St. Louis. He has yielded two runs or less in seven of his last eight starts.

      Giants' Mike Leake allows one hit, takes no-decision on Saturday

      Fresh off the disabled list, Giants starter Mike Leake was terrific Saturday against the Pirates. The right-hander went six innings, giving up a solo home run to Jung Ho Kang as the only hit against him on the afternoon. Leake walked one and struck out six, but was left with a no-decision, as the Pirates would grab the 3-2 walk-off win. He was lifted for a pinch-hitter after throwing just 77 pitches, with the Giants trying to push across the go-ahead run. Leake has made two starts for the Giants since being acquired in a deal at the trade deadline. Both outings have been superb, with a total of three runs allowed over 12 1/3 innings.
