Giants' Jeff Samardzija: Season debut coming into focus
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Samardzija's first start of the season has "a very good chance" of being April 1, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

That would set Samardzija up to debut at Dodger Stadium in the Giants' fifth game of the season. The right-hander made his longest start of the spring Thursday, throwing 5.1 innings and allowing two eared runs on seven hits and a walk. He struck out four.

Giants' Jeff Samardzija: Fires three strong innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Samardzija tossed three scoreless innings while giving up one hit with two walks and four strikeouts in Monday's spring loss to the Dodgers.

Samardzija followed up his two-inning scoreless spring debut with another brief gem, this time facing the Dodgers' regulars sans Corey Seager. The 34-year-old is coming off of an injury-plagued 2018 campaign where he posted a 6.25 ERA in just 10 starts. While it's early in the exhibition season, it is a positive sign that the Shark is ramping his fastball up to 94 mph (career-low 92.3 mph fastball average in 2018) while displaying big cut and two-seam movement, according to Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle.

Giants' Jeff Samardzija: Sharp in spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Samardzija picked up the win Wednesday against the Royals, allowing one hit across two scoreless innings. He struck out two.

Samardzija was sharp in his Cactus League debut, needing just 10 pitches to navigate a pair of scoreless frames. While it's still early, this is an encouraging start to spring for the 34-year-old after injuries derailed his 2018 campaign.

Giants' Jeff Samardzija: Resumes throwing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Samardzija (shoulder) has begun throwing bullpen sessions, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Injuries wrecked Samardzija's 2018 campaign, as he made just 10 starts and struggled to a 6.25 ERA when available. He didn't appear in a game after the All-Star break. It's a good sign that he's resumed throwing nearly two months before Opening Day, but given his age (34), it wouldn't be surprising if his road back is a rocky one.

Giants' Jeff Samardzija: Recovery going well
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

President of baseball operations Farhan Zaidi said Samardzija's (shoulder) recovery is going well, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Samardzija spent most of the 2018 campaign on the shelf due to shoulder issues, starting just 10 games for the Giants and struggling to a 6.25 ERA, 1.63 WHIP and 30:26 K:BB in those appearances (44.2 innings). Barring any setbacks, it sounds like the veteran right-hander will be ready to go for the start of the season, though it will be worth monitoring his status early on in spring training before committing to a bounce-back.
