  • Giants' Scott Alexander: Opening again Sunday

    Alexander will serve as the opener Sunday against the Diamondbacks, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    Alexander threw 1.1 scoreless innings to begin Saturday's game against Arizona, and he'll likely pitch a similar amount Sunday. The Giants are poised to throw a bullpen game, and Sean Hjelle is expected to be recalled from Triple-A Sacramento to fill a long-relief role for the contest.

  • Giants' Scott Alexander: Serving as opener Saturday

    Alexander will serve as the opener for Saturday's game against the Diamondbacks, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Alexander has tossed 7.2 scoreless innings over his last eight appearances, and he's converted both of his save chances while picking up three holds over that stretch. However, he'll serve as an opener for the second time in less than a week Saturday, while Jakob Junis should be available as a bulk reliever.

  • Giants' Scott Alexander: Scoreless inning as opener

    Alexander did not factor into the decision in one inning as the opener Sunday against Arizona. He allowed one hit and did not allow a walk or a run.

    Alexander got the nod as the opener Sunday and recorded a scoreless inning, marking seven consecutive appearances without allowing a run. The 33-year-old has played a bit of a utility role for Arizona, as in the month of September, he has two saves, five holds and an appearance as the opener. In 10.2 innings this month, he owns a 1.76 ERA and 6:1 K:BB.

  • Giants' Scott Alexander: Slated to open Sunday

    Alexander will start Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks as the opener, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Jakob Junis hasn't had much success lately (7.13 ERA in his last five appearances), so manager Gabe Kapler will throw the lefty Alexander in front of Junis and give Arizona a couple different looks early. Alexander has been excellent since joining the major-league team in San Francisco (1.38 ERA, 0.77 WHIP), but he hasn't thrown more than 1.1 innings in an appearance.

  • Giants' Scott Alexander: Secures second save

    Alexander earned a save against the Rockies on Monday, striking out one batter in a perfect 10th inning.

    Usual closer Camilo Doval pitched a scoreless ninth inning to send the game to an extra frame, and Alexander got the call after San Francisco scored three times in the top of the 10th. The left-hander needed only nine pitches to retire the side in order and notch his second save. Both have come in the past eight days, and Alexander hasn't given up a run across four innings during that stretch.

  • Giants' Scott Alexander: Picks up tough save

    Alexander earned a save against Atlanta on Monday, allowing one hit over 1.1 scoreless innings.

    Alexander entered with two outs and the tying run at third base in the eighth inning. He got Matt Olson to fly out to end the threat, then navigated past a leadoff single in the ninth to complete his first save of the campaign. Alexander had seven career saves coming into Monday, but his last one was in 2018. The left-hander got the opportunity because regular closer Camilo Doval had pitched each of the past two days, so it's unlikely Alexander will see many save chances moving forward despite his impressive appearance Monday.

  • Giants' Scott Alexander: Starting Thursday's matinee

    Alexander will start Game 1 of Thursday's doubleheader in Milwaukee, Maria I. Guardado of reports.

    Alexander has given up one earned run across 5.1 innings for San Francisco this season and will make the second start of his career Thursday. The veteran left-hander should cover an inning or two before giving way to Jakob Junis.

  • Giants' Scott Alexander: Contract selected by Giants

    Alexander's contract was selected from Triple-A Sacramento on Friday.

    Alexander joined the Giants on a minor-league contract in early May and struck out eight in 7.2 scoreless innings over seven relief appearances at Sacramento. He hasn't pitched in the majors since 2021 but will join the Giants' bullpen after Thomas Szapucki was sent down.

  • Giants' Scott Alexander: Catches on with Giants

    Alexander signed a minor-league contract with the Giants on May 3.

    Alexander is likely ticketed for Triple-A Sacramento, but he'll presumably require some ramp-up time at the Giants' extended spring training facility in Arizona since he's been on the open market since electing free agency in November. The 32-year-old southpaw finished the 2021 campaign on the Dodgers' 60-day injured list while he contended with shoulder inflammation, but he's presumably healthy now.

  • Dodgers' Scott Alexander: Outrighted off roster

    Alexander (shoulder) was outrighted off the Dodgers' 40-man roster Friday, Eric Stephen of reports.

    Alexander cruised to a 2.93 ERA in 15.1 innings in the early part of the season but wound up missing much of the year with shoulder inflammation. It's unclear whether or not he'll be back to 100 percent by the start of spring training.

  • Dodgers' Scott Alexander: Ruled out for season

    Alexander (shoulder) will not return during the 2021 season, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Alexander has been sidelined since July 20 with inflammation in his shoulder, an issue that also affected him earlier in the season. He'll close the campaign with a 2.93 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 8:4 K:BB across 15.1 innings.

  • Dodgers' Scott Alexander: Transferred to 60-day IL

    Alexander (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Thursday.

    Alexander continues to be bothered by a shoulder issue that has limited him since May, and with him still needing time to recover, the Dodgers moved him to the longer injured list to open up a spot on the 40-man roster for Andrew Vasquez. Alexander will still be eligible to return before the regular season ends, but it remains to be seen if he will do so.

  • Dodgers' Scott Alexander: Rehabbing in Arizona

    Alexander (shoulder) continues to conduct his rehab program at the Dodgers' spring training facility in Arizona, but manager Dave Roberts said the lefty reliever is "a ways away" from coming off the 10-day injured list, Eric Stephen of reports.

    Stephen suggests Alexander could be a candidate to move to the 60-day IL, in which case he wouldn't be eligible to return until the back half of September. Though Alexander hasn't been shut down, the fact that the Dodgers aren't yet mapping out a rehab assignment for him suggests he's at least a couple weeks away from a return in a best-case scenario.

  • Dodgers' Scott Alexander: Shoulder inflammation resurfaces

    Alexander was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with left shoulder inflammation, Juan Toribio of reports.

    The left-hander spent two months on the shelf with shoulder inflammation before rejoining the active roster in early July, but he's apparently not fully recovered from the issue. Alexander is without a timeline for his return since the severity of the aggravation remains unclear.

  • Dodgers' Scott Alexander: Sweats out scoreless outing

    Alexander allowed two hits and a walk over two-thirds of an inning against Miami on Tuesday but did not give up any runs.

    The left-hander came on in the ninth inning of a tie game and allowed a single and a walk to the first two batters he faced. After striking out Joe Panik, Alexander allowed an infield single that loaded the bases. He then picked up another strikeout -- this time getting Jazz Chisholm swinging -- before giving way to Blake Treinen, who ended the frame by inducing a groundout. In two appearances since coming off the injured list Monday, Alexander has pitched 1.2 scoreless innings, allowing three hits and a walk while striking out three.

  • Dodgers' Scott Alexander: Reinstated from 60-day IL

    Alexander (shoulder) was reinstated from the 60-day injured list Monday.

    Alexander recorded a 2.31 ERA and 0.69 WHIP in 11.2 innings across his first 13 relief appearances of the season before he was placed on the injured list with left shoulder inflammation. The southpaw made six rehab appearances between Low-A Rancho Cucamonga and Triple-A Oklahoma City, and he could serve as one of the top left-handed options in the major-league bullpen now that he's healthy.

  • Dodgers' Scott Alexander: Nearing activation

    Alexander (shoulder) is expected to be activated from the injured list Monday or Tuesday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    Alexander was one of the Dodgers' better relievers in April, posting a 2.31 ERA in 11.2 innings of work before getting injured at the start of May. Once activated, he's likely to play a considerable role as one of the bullpen's best left-handed options.

  • Dodgers' Scott Alexander: Expected to return when eligible

    Alexander (shoulder) is expected to be activated from the 60-day injured list in early July, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    Alexander remains with Triple-A Oklahoma City for the time being, but manager Dave Roberts notes the southpaw will be ready for activation during the first week of July when he becomes eligible. He's been sidelined since May 1 due to left shoulder inflammation.

  • Dodgers' Scott Alexander: Rehab moves to Triple-A

    Alexander (shoulder) progressed to Triple-A Oklahoma City to continue his rehab assignment Thursday, Alex Freedman of Oklahoma City's broadcast team reports.

    Alexander began a rehab assignment on June 18 with Low-A Rancho Cucamonga. That stint appears to have gone as planned, and he's now expected to throw at some point in Oklahoma City's game Thursday. Alexander is eligible to return from the injured list in early July and appears on track for activation close to that time.

  • Dodgers' Scott Alexander: Begins rehab assignment

    Alexander (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment with Low-A Rancho Cucamonga on Friday, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

    Alexander has been on the injured list since early May due to left shoulder inflammation, but he threw live batting practice last weekend and will now progress to a rehab assignment. The southpaw isn't eligible to return from the 60-day IL until July 5, but he appears on track to be ready by that date.
