  • Athletics' Scott Alexander: Receives contract from Oakland

    Alexander signed a one-year contract with the Athletics on Wednesday, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    Alexander is coming off a down 2023 campaign, having posted a 4.66 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 31:11 K:BB in 48.1 innings for the Giants. He entered last year with a career 3.00 ERA over parts of eight major-league seasons, however, so the A's will be hoping for something closer to that version. The sinkerballer will provide Oakland with a lefty relief option.

  • Giants' Scott Alexander: Shut down with hamstring strain

    The Giants placed Alexander on the 15-day injured list Saturday with a left hamstring strain.

    It's an early shutdown for Alexander, who finishes with a 4.66 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 31:11 K:BB in 48.1 innings of work for San Francisco. The 34-year-old lefty reliever is scheduled to become a free agent this winter.

  • Giants' Scott Alexander: Handed loss as opener

    Alexander (7-3) allowed two unearned runs on one hit in two-thirds of an inning to take the loss in Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader versus the Rockies.

    It wasn't a great first inning for the Giants overall, and their offense never caught up, leaving Alexander to take his first loss since Aug. 8. The southpaw hasn't strung together more than two scoreless appearances in a row since July, pitching to a rough 7.36 ERA and 2.05 WHIP over his last 14.2 innings. He's at a 4.47 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 29:11 K:BB through 46.1 innings overall, and he's added a save, eight holds and two blown saves this season.

  • Giants' Scott Alexander: Opening nightcap

    Alexander will be the opener for the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Rockies, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Alexander has been the first pitcher on the mound on seven previous occasions this season. Only once did he throw more than one inning in that role, and he never threw more than 1.2 frames. Expect a similarly brief outing Saturday before he turns the ball over to a bulk reliever, with Jakob Junis the most likely candidate.

  • Giants' Scott Alexander: Scoops up win Sunday

    Alexander (7-2) allowed two runs on three hits and a walk over 1.1 innings, earning the win Sunday over Atlanta.

    The left-hander entered after Tristan Beck was pulled in the fifth inning. Alexander allowed an inherited runner to score in that frame and gave up a two-run home run to Marcell Ozuna in the sixth, but the Giants were able to hold the lead the rest of the way. Through 47 appearances, including seven as an opener, Alexander has a 4.46 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 24:11 K:BB over 40.1 innings. He's been particularly shaky in August with a 9.35 ERA and 2.65 WHIP over 8.2 innings this month, so it's unlikely he sees much late-inning work over the final month-plus of the campaign.

  • Giants' Scott Alexander: Opening Monday

    Alexander will serve as the Giants' opening pitcher for Sunday's game against the Phillies, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.

    Alexander has opened six times for the Giants this season and hasn't covered more than 1.2 frames in any of those outings. The left-hander has a 4.06 ERA through 44 appearances on the campaign and is likely good for a handful of outs Monday before giving way to bulk option Sean Manaea.

  • Giants' Scott Alexander: Opening again Friday

    Alexander will serve as the Giants' opening pitcher Friday versus the Rangers, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    Ross Stripling had been projected to start, but he'll instead likely operate in bulk relief. This is the sixth opener assignment of the year for Alexander, who has posted an overall 4.01 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 18:7 K:BB across 33.2 innings (40 appearances) this season with San Francisco.

  • Giants' Scott Alexander: Chased without logging an out

    Alexander (6-2) took the loss Tuesday, allowing three runs on three hits while failing to record an out in a 7-5 loss to the Angels.

    Alexander was thoroughly ineffective while serving as the Giants' opener Tuesday, surrendering a double and a pair of singles to his first three batters before quickly being replaced by Jakob Junis. Alexander has failed to complete a full inning in three straight appearances, a stretch in which he's allowed four runs on six hits without logging a single strikeout.

  • Giants' Scott Alexander: Serving as opener Tuesday

    Alexander will serve as the Giants' opening pitcher Tuesday versus the Angels, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Alex Wood is expected to follow him and handle the majority of the innings. This will be the fifth opener assignment of the year for Alexander, who has registered an overall 3.21 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 18:7 K:BB across 33.2 innings (39 appearances) this season with San Francisco.

  • Giants' Scott Alexander: Opening Thursday

    Alexander will start Thursday's game against Arizona, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Alexander has fallen into a somewhat regular role as an opener recently, as Thursday will mark his third start since July 24. The 34-year-old lefty holds a solid 3.13 ERA and 0.98 WHIP through 31.2 innings on the year but will likely only remain on the mound for an inning or two.

  • Giants' Scott Alexander: Opening Sunday

    Alexander will start Sunday's game against the Red Sox, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    The left-hander has opened two games for the Giants this season and will do so for the third time Sunday versus the Red Sox. Alexander has given up just two earned runs across his past 18 outings and has a 3.41 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 16:6 K:BB over 29 innings this season. Ross Stripling has struggled as a traditional starter and could handle the bulk role behind Alexander to close out the series against Boston.

  • Giants' Scott Alexander: Takes loss as opener Sunday

    Alexander (6-1) allowed two runs on two hits over two-thirds of an inning to take the loss Sunday. He did not walk or strike out a batter.

    Alexander was the opener for the second time this season, but it ended up being a poor outing for the southpaw, as he gave up multiple runs for the first time since April 29. He's emerged as a somewhat high-leverage option for the Giants this season, logging seven holds and one save over 32 appearances, though he's far from challenging Camilo Doval for the closer role. Alexander now has a 3.62 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 15:6 K:BB through 27.1 innings and should return to his usual role going forward.

  • Giants' Scott Alexander: Gets opener nod Sunday

    Alexander will serve as the Giants' opening pitcher Sunday versus the Nationals, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Anthony DeSclafani had been listed as the Giants' probable starter, but he will instead operate in bulk relief. Alexander, 34, carries a 3.04 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 15:6 K:BB in 26.2 innings (31 appearances) this season at the MLB level.

  • Giants' Scott Alexander: Secures sixth win

    Alexander (6-0) allowed a hit and struck out three over one inning to earn the win Tuesday over the Reds.

    Alexander has allowed one unearned run in 3.2 innings since returning from a hamstring injury. The southpaw worked the sixth inning of a tie game Tuesday, and ended up with the win when the Giants pulled ahead in the seventh. Alexander continues to function well as a middle reliever with a 3.04 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 15:6 K:BB over 26.2 innings this season. He's picked up a save, seven holds and two blown saves, but he's usually only an emergency option for late-inning work.

  • Giants' Scott Alexander: Returns from injured list

    San Francisco activated Alexander (hamstring) from the 15-day injured list Tuesday, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

    Alexander will return to the Giants' bullpen Tuesday against the Mariners after missing exactly 15 days with a left hamstring strain. The 33-year-old southpaw carries a 3.52 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 11:5 K:BB in 23 innings this season.

  • Giants' Scott Alexander: Lands on injured list

    The Giants placed Alexander on the 15-day injured list Monday with a left hamstring strain, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

    Alexander was pulled from Sunday's game against the Dodgers with discomfort in his left hamstring -- an issue that has bothered him quite a bit recently. The 33-year-old lefty will now be sidelined for at least 15 days while Sean Hjelle returns from Triple-A Sacramento to take Alexander's spot in the bullpen.

  • Giants' Scott Alexander: Likely heading to IL

    Alexander (hamstring) will likely require a trip to the injured list, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.

    Alexander exited Sunday's game against the Dodgers with left hamstring discomfort, an issue he's been dealing with for some time. He'll presumably be re-evaluated Monday before the Giants officially determine whether he'll require an IL stint, but Sean Hjelle was scratched from his minor-league start Sunday and is a candidate to be called up if Alexander is sidelined.

  • Giants' Scott Alexander: Exits with trainer

    Alexander exited Sunday's game against the Dodgers with a trainer in the bottom of the ninth inning due to an unspecified injury, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Alexander gave up no runs on a hit and a walk in one-third of an inning after entering Sunday's matchup in the bottom of the ninth, but he was examined by a trainer after loading the bases, and he exited the game. He appeared to be walking with a limp while exiting the field, but the exact nature and severity of his injury aren't yet clear.

  • Giants' Scott Alexander: Managing hamstring discomfort

    Alexander was removed from Sunday's game against the Dodgers due to left hamstring discomfort, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Alexander exited Sunday's matchup after being examined by a trainer in the bottom of the ninth inning, and he's dealing with a hamstring issue that has plagued him recently. It's unclear whether he'll require a trip to the injured list, but he should be considered day-to-day for now.

  • Giants' Scott Alexander: Collects fifth win

    Alexander (5-0) earned the win, pitching a perfect inning versus the Rockies on Thursday.

    Alexander has racked up 9.1 consecutive scoreless innings over his last 10 appearances, and he's given up just two hits, a walk and one hit-by-pitch in that span. The southpaw's strong work has helped him move up the leverage ladder slightly, though the Giants have plenty of late-inning options that will generally keep him out of the conversation for saves. He has one save, six holds and two blown saves while posting a 3.57 ERA, 0.88 WHIP and 11:4 K:BB over 22.2 innings this season.
