  • Giants' Jakob Junis: Strikes out seven in quality start

    Junis registered a no-decision during Tuesday's 2-1 win against Arizona, allowing one run on four hits with seven strikeouts in seven innings. Junis engaged in an unlikely pitcher's duel with opposing starter Merrill Kelly and appeared to be done in by a Christian Walker solo shot in the fourth inning until Brandon Crawford walked it off in the ninth to erase him from the ledger. The 29-year-old had his best stuff working with 16 swinging strikes on 101 pitches and fell one short of his season high with seven strikeouts. Aside from last week's blip, Junis has held opponents to three runs or fewer in each of his last eight turns and possesses a solid 3.53 ERA and 1.14 WHIP with 63 strikeouts in 71.1 innings. He currently lines up for another start this week Sunday in Colorado.

  • Giants' Jakob Junis: Crushed by Padres

    Junis allowed six earned runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out three across 2.1 innings Wednesday against the Padres. He did not factor into the decision. Junis got through two scoreless innings, but he allowed the first seven batters he faced to reach base in the third frame before being yanked. Despite being in the rotation consistently since the All-Star break, Junis has yet to work more than 4.1 innings in four outings. He's also allowed 10 earned runs across 14.1 innings in that span, inflating his overall ERA to 3.78 across 64.1 frames for the season.

  • Giants' Jakob Junis: Takes loss in short outing

    Junis (4-3) allowed three earned runs on five hits and two walks while striking out five across 3.2 innings to take the loss Thursday against the Dodgers. Junis surrendered only one run before being pulled, but he labored throughout the start. He allowed multiple baserunners in each of his last three frames and needed 79 pitches to record 14 outs. Junis has failed to complete more than 4.1 innings in any of his three starts since being activated from the injured list July 16. Overall, he has a 3.05 ERA with a 53:14 K:BB across 62 innings for the season.

  • Giants' Jakob Junis: Solid in four-inning start

    Junis allowed five hits and a walk with four strikeouts in four scoreless innings, taking a no-decision Saturday versus the Cubs. Junis stretched out to 74 pitches, but he wasn't very efficient with them in throwing only 45 strikes in this outing. He was at least able to keep runs off the board for the first time in three appearances since returning from a hamstring injury. The 29-year-old owns a 2.78 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 48:12 K:BB through 58.1 innings in 12 outings (nine starts) this year. Junis is projected for a tough home start versus the Dodgers next week.

  • Giants' Jakob Junis: In rotation to begin second half

    Junis is slated to start Monday's game in Arizona. After he was reinstated from the injured list July 16, Junis was available out of the bullpen for the Giants' final two games before the All-Star break since the team was able to temporarily get by with a four-man rotation. With San Francisco opening its post-break schedule with five games in five days, Junis will slot back into the rotation, though he could have a workload restriction Monday. Before making a two-inning relief appearance following his return from the IL a week and a half ago, Junis covered only two frames in both of his minor-league rehab outings.

  • Giants' Jakob Junis: Covers two innings in relief

    Junis tossed two innings out of the bullpen in Sunday's 9-5 win over the Brewers, giving up three earned runs on five hits and no walks while striking out two. Before landing on the injured list in mid-June with a Grade 2 hamstring strain, Junis had been working as a starter, but the Giants chose to ease him back in a relief role after he was activated Saturday. Though Junis struggled in his appearance out of the bullpen, he should be the leading candidate to jump back into the rotation when the Giants first require a fifth starter coming out of the All-Star break. Through 10 appearances (seven starts) for the big club in 2022, Junis has posted a 3.06 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 42:10 K:BB in 50 innings.

  • Giants' Jakob Junis: Back and available in relief

    Junis (hamstring) was activated off the injured list Saturday and is expected to pitch out of the bullpen, Evan Webeck of The San Jose Mercury News reports. Junis should be able to reclaim his rotation role after the break, but the Giants don't need a starter in either of the final two games of the first half, so he'll pitch in relief for now. He's available for up to 60 pitches in support of Alex Cobb on Saturday against the Brewers. Prior to hitting the injured list with a hamstring strain in mid-June, Junis had recorded a 2.63 ERA in seven starts and two relief appearances.

  • Giants' Jakob Junis: Could return Saturday

    Junis (hamstring) is a candidate to return from the injured list ahead of Saturday's game against the Brewers, Evan Webeck of The San Jose Mercury News reports. Mauricio Llovera left Friday's game against the Brewers due to a flexor strain, so Junis would likely provide length out of the bullpen if he's ultimately cleared to return Saturday. Alex Cobb and Logan Webb are listed as the probable starters for Saturday and Sunday, respectively, but Junis said that he's built up to approximately 50-60 pitches. The right-hander has made two rehab appearances in the Arizona Complex League and has allowed a run on five hits and no walks while striking out four in four innings.

  • Giants' Jakob Junis: Slated for rehab start Monday

    Junis (hamstring) will make a rehab start with the Giants' rookie-level Arizona Complex League affiliate Monday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Junis threw two innings in a rehab start Thursday and will make another appearance with the rookie-level affiliate Monday. The Giants haven't yet indicated when the right-hander will be able to return, but he should be out through the All-Star break if he requires another rehab appearance following Monday's outing.

  • Giants' Jakob Junis: Needs more time before live BP

    Junis (hamstring) is expected to throw two or three more bullpen sessions before he's cleared to face hitters in live batting practice, Evan Webeck of The San Jose Mercury News reports. Junis felt fine after throwing approximately 20 pitches Tuesday at about 75-to-80 percent effort in what marked his first side session since landing on the 15-day injured list June 11. He's scheduled to throw off a mound again Friday, and if that schedule holds, he'll then throw a third bullpen session Monday. Junis could thus be ready to face hitters by next weekend before potentially embarking on a minor-league rehab assignment during the second week of July. That timeline could make it difficult for Junis to make it back before the All-Star break, though his absence is less of an issue with fellow starting pitchers Anthony DeSclafani and Alex Cobb having returned from the IL earlier this month.

  • Giants' Jakob Junis: Completes bullpen session

    Junis (hamstring) threw a bullpen session Tuesday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Junis was ruled out 4-to-6 weeks after suffering a Grade 2 hamstring strain in mid-June, and he's creeping closer to embarking on a minor-league rehab assignment. However, the 29-year-old will first need to advance to facing live batters, and it's unclear when he's expected to do so.

  • Giants' Jakob Junis: Starts throwing program

    Junis (hamstring) is initiating a throwing program this weekend, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. The Grade 2 hamstring strain that sent him to the injured list June 11 was expected to keep Junis out 4-6 weeks. As Slusser notes, it seems encouraging that he is already throwing, given the severity of the strain. Perhaps he is trending closer to the short end of the initial timetable.

  • Giants' Jakob Junis: To IL with hamstring strain

    Junis was placed on the 15-day injured list Saturday with a left hamstring strain, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports. Per Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle, Junis hasn't gotten an MRI yet but wasn't feeling much better Saturday morning. Slusser also notes that hamstring strains typically require 3-to-6 weeks of recovery and the team will know more after his MRI. The Giants will likely have to dip into the Triple-A rotation for a short-term replacement for Junis.

  • Giants' Jakob Junis: Diagnosed with hamstring strain

    Junis was diagnosed with a left hamstring strain after exiting Friday's game against the Dodgers in the top of the sixth inning, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports. Junis limped off the field after slipping on the mound in the top of the sixth inning, and he's dealing with a hamstring strain. The grade of the strain isn't yet clear, and the team hasn't revealed whether the right-hander will require a trip to the injured list. If he's able to make his next start, Junis tentatively lines up to take the mound at home against the Royals on Wednesday.

  • Giants' Jakob Junis: Fans eight in win

    Junis (3-1) earned the victory Sunday in Miami, striking out eight in six innings while allowing a run on two hits and two walks. Junis held the Marlins' lineup in check, allowing just a single and two walks through the first five innings. Garrett Cooper tagged him for a one-out solo shot in the sixth, but Junis came right back and struck out the final two batters he faced. The eight strikeouts were a season-high for the 29-year-old. Junis is easily having the best season of his career with a 2.51 ERA and 0.93 WHIP in 43 innings. His next start will likely be next weekend against the Dodgers.

  • Giants' Jakob Junis: Gives up one run in no-decision

    Junis didn't factor in the decision during Tuesday's 7-4 win over the Phillies after allowing one run on three hits across 4.1 innings. He had three strikeouts and two walks. The right-hander threw 40 of his 64 pitches for strikes but generated only five swinging strikes, and he was lifted after giving up a one-out single during the fifth inning. It's the first time this season Junis has failed to complete at least five innings, though it had less to do with his performance than the quick hook of manager Gabe Kapler. Regardless, it was another solid outing for the 29-year-old, and he'll carry a 2.68 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 27:7 K:BB into his next appearance.

  • Giants' Jakob Junis: Rotation security increases

    With Anthony DeSclafani (ankle) getting placed on the 60-day injured list, it would seem that Junis has a better chance of sticking in the rotation over the next month. DeSclafani won't be eligible to return until late June, and while the Giants usually have viable options for rotation depth, Junis should be able to stick in the rotation if he continues to pitch well over the next month. He has a 1.74 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 18:4 K:BB in 20.2 innings over four starts.

  • Giants' Jakob Junis: Just misses quality start

    Junis (1-1) was hit with the loss Saturday against St. Louis despite a decent performance which saw him allow two runs on six hits across 5.2 frames. He struck out three batters while walking one. Junis was far from dominant, but he still came up just one out short of a quality start in his longest outing of the year. He was beaten by a Brendan Donovan RBI double in the second inning and a Tommy Edman solo homer in the fourth, and his teammates couldn't manage to put a single run on the board. Junis now owns a 1.74 ERA in 20.2 innings so far this season.

  • Giants' Jakob Junis: Another solid outing

    Junis allowed two runs on three hits and two walks over five innings in Sunday's win over St. Louis. He struck out five and did not factor in the decision. Junis turned in a strong outing in which his only blemish was allowing a two-run homer to Juan Yepez in the second inning. He's now given up just two runs while posting a 15:3 K:BB through 15 MLB innings on the year. Oddly enough, the 29-year-old has coughed up 11 runs on five homers through three outings with Triple-A Sacramento this season. As of now, Junis is lined up for a rematch in St. Louis next weekend.

  • Giants' Jakob Junis: Recalled for Sunday's start

    Junis was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento and will start Sunday against the Cardinals, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Junis was previously named the starter for Sunday's series finale, and he's now officially been called up from Sacramento. The 29-year-old has come out of the bullpen in his two previous appearances this season, but he covered five scoreless frames in each contest, so he shouldn't face any significant workload limitations in his first start of 2022.
