    • Giants' Ty Blach: Moved to bullpen
      By RotoWire Staff

      Blach has lost his spot in the rotation, according to John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle. The Giants had been deploying a six-man rotation following Johnny Cueto's return from the disabled list, but with four scheduled off days providing plenty of rest for their starters down the stretch, Blach will be bumped to the bullpen. The 26-year-old has struggled over his last five starts (0-5 with a 7.90 ERA) after providing decent results with his pitch-to-contact style earlier this season. Blach will likely get the first call should a spot reopen in the rotation.

    • Giants' Ty Blach: Road struggles continue
      By RotoWire Staff

      Blach (8-12) took the loss Tuesday in Colorado after allowing five runs on five hits with two walks and two strikeouts over 5.1 innings. Blach came in with a 5.57 road ERA and predictably ran in trouble at the league's least pitcher-friendly venue. He trailed only 2-1 after five innings, but fell apart in the sixth before being lifted after only 82 pitches. While Blach is scheduled to come back home for next Tuesday's start, things don't get any easier with the Dodgers in town.

    • Giants' Ty Blach: Will stay in rotation
      By RotoWire Staff

      Blach will stick in the rotation after Johnny Cueto (forearm) returns from the disabled list Friday, MLB.com's Chris Haft reports. Blach may have felt like he was pitching for his rotation spot in Wednesday's loss to the Padres, but he will avoid a demotion to the bullpen with the Giants deploying a six-man rotation going forward. The rookie didn't pitch particularly well, taking his fourth consecutive loss while allowing three runs on five hits with two walks and just one strikeout over 5.2 innings. The soft-tossing lefty has surrendered six home runs in his last four starts after posting a league-best 0.7 HR/9 over his previous 19 outings. Blach's next start will be pushed back to next Tuesday, but the scheduling change will not get him out of a dangerous matchup on the road in Colorado.

    • Blach (8-10) allowed four runs on six hits and two walks with two strikeouts over five innings Friday to take the loss against the Diamondbacks. Blach has now allowed 16 runs in 16.1 innings over his past three starts, a stretch in which he is now 0-3 with a 6:8 K:BB. Despite a fastball that averages just 90.1 mph, Blach had managed to put together a 3.86 ERA and 1.28 WHIP over his previous 16 starts covering 107.1 innings. It looks like major-league hitters are starting to figure him out, and Blach is unraveling in the August heat.

    • Giants' Ty Blach: Tagged for six runs in loss
      By RotoWire Staff

      Blach (8-9) allowed six runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out three over 5.1 innings in a losing effort against the Phillies on Saturday. He kept his team in it for five innings, but everything fell apart for San Francisco in the sixth, with Blach, Josh Osich and Cory Gearrin combining to give up seven runs in the frame. The ERA and WHIP still look decent for a 26-year-old in his first full big-league season, but Blach has struggled on the road and he has the lowest K/9 among all qualified starters in baseball.
