    • Giants' Jeff Samardzija: MRI on tap
      By RotoWire Staff

      Samardzija (shoulder) is expected to undergo an MRI on Sunday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. For the third time this season, the Giants placed Samardzija on the 10-day disabled list Sunday, with right shoulder inflammation the cause of the last two stints. After being activated July 7, Samardzija made only two starts before being shut down following Saturday's outing against the Athletics, during which he lasted only four innings while displaying diminished velocity. According to Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle, manager Bruce Bochy said surgery hasn't been discussed as a potential option for Samardzija, but the recurring nature of his setback suggests the right-hander will likely be sidelined for more than the minimum 10 days. If that's the case, Derek Holland would be the most logical candidate to enter the rotation in Samardzija's stead.

    • The Giants placed Samardzija on the 10-day disabled list Sunday with right shoulder inflammation, Chris Haft of MLB.com reports. Samardzija was sidelined for all of June with the same injury and hasn't looked particularly sharp in his first two outings with the Giants since returning from the DL, covering a combined nine innings and allowing five runs on 10 hits and three walks while striking out four. It's unclear how significant of a setback this might be for Samardzija, but he may not have to miss a turn through the rotation if he's able to resume throwing within a few days. Once the All-Star break concludes, the Giants won't require a fifth starter until July 25 in Seattle, the first day Samardzija is eligible to return.

    • Giants' Jeff Samardzija: Scuffles again
      By RotoWire Staff

      Samardzija allowed two earned runs on three hits and two walks while striking out one across four innings Saturday against the Athletics. He did not factor into the decision. Samardzija's trouble stemmed from a lack of control Saturday. He began the second inning with two walks, which allowed the Athletics to score a run prior to recording a hit in the inning. Similarly, he allowed a double to start the third inning and then advanced the runner to third base on a wild pitch, ultimately allowing a run to score without surrendering another hit in the inning. The poor outing also meant he threw only 55 pitches, so he may still not be fully stretched out in his first start after returning from the All-Star break.

    • Samardzija (1-5) took the loss Saturday as the Giants fell 3-2 to the Cardinals, giving up three runs on seven hits and a walk over five innings while striking out three. Making his first start since the end of May due to a shoulder issue, Samardzija didn't pitch too badly but still wound up on the losing end of the decision thanks to a lack of run support. The right-hander threw 81 pitches (53 strikes) before exiting, and he should be ready for a bigger workload in his next outing Friday at home against the A's.

    • Giants' Jeff Samardzija: To return Saturday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Samardzija (shoulder) will come off the 10-day DL and pitch against the Cardinals on Saturday, Kerry Crowley of the Bay Area News Group reports. Samardzija recently completed a fourth rehab start, allowing just two earned runs -- on a pair of solo home runs -- across six innings with Triple-A Sacramento on Monday. He will take the mound for San Francisco on normal rest for Saturday's outing, which will mark his first game back since suffering the shoulder injury May 29.
