Giants' Mark Melancon: Perfect in Cactus League action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

In his first appearance since returning from the World Baseball Classic, Melancon fired a scoreless inning in Saturday's win over the Padres.

Saturday's outing brought Melancon's scoreless inning streak to eight this spring. The soon-to-be 32-year-old will look to build off last season's tremendous 1.64 ERA and 47 saves with his new club. The elite closer should see plenty of save opportunities for the contending Giants this season.

Giants' Mark Melancon: Will join Team USA in WBC
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Melancon will join his fellow countrymen in the World Baseball Classic, joining Team United States for its semifinal matchup against Team Japan, CSN Bay Area reports.

Melancon didn't initially join Team USA because he wanted to get familiar with his new teammates in spring training. The elite closer accomplished his goal, throwing eight shutout innings in the process. He will join a loaded USA roster as the Americans attempt to advance to the WBC finals with a win over Team Japan on Tuesday.

Giants' Mark Melancon: Receives Team USA invite
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Melancon received an invite to join the United States in the World Baseball Classic as an alternate.

Melancon has fired five scoreless innings in early Cactus League action, so he has little to prove to his new club. Team USA would first have to elect to bring him aboard, then the Giants would have to approve the addition to the roster. Regardless of whether he joins Team USA or not, his spot as the Giants' closer is etched in stone.

Giants' Mark Melancon: Feels great heading into spring training
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Melancon said that he feels where he wants to be physically heading into spring training, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Melancon threw a bullpen session Tuesday and reportedly felt great physically afterwards. He mentioned that he normally feels a "slowness" when beginning spring training but that was not the case this year. This is good news for both the Giants -- who recently signed their new closer to four-year deal this offseason -- and fantasy owners hoping for another solid season from one of the game's top closing options.

Giants' Mark Melancon: Set to join Giants
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Melancon has agreed to a contract with the Giants, ESPN's Buster Olney reports.

The deal is still pending a physical, but barring any hiccups, Melancon is on the move from the East Coast to the West Coast. He is primed to take over as the Giants' closer, a role they had a difficult time filling effectively at the end of last season. Melancon is coming off arguably the best season of his career, one which saw him post a 1.64 ERA, 0.90 WHIP and 65:12 K:BB over 75 appearances with the Pirates and Nationals.
