Giants' Sammy Long: Returns to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Long was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Saturday, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Long was promoted from Triple-A on Thursday and will return there after delivering 1.1 scoreless frames in his lone appearances. Alex Wood (illness) was activated from the injured list in a corresponding move.

Giants' Sammy Long: Recalled by Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Long was recalled by the Giants on Thursday, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

Long has made five starts and six relief appearances at the big-league level this season, posting an unimpressive 5.72 ERA. He'll likely serve as a low-leverage relief option for now. Jay Jackson was optioned to open a spot for Long's return.

Giants' Sammy Long: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Long was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Sunday, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Long allowed two runs (one earned) on a hit and two walks during Saturday's loss to the Dodgers, and he'll head to the minors in favor of a fresh bullpen arm. The 26-year-old has a 5.72 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 38:15 K:BB across 39.1 major-league innings this season.

Giants' Sammy Long: Works in tandem with DeSclafani
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Long covered 4.2 innings of long relief and took a no-decision in Sunday's 9-0 loss to Atlanta. He gave up six runs on six hits and two walks while striking out three.

After Anthony DeSclafani (ankle) was cleared to return from the 10-day injured list to start Sunday's contest, Long was expected to transition into a multi-inning role out of the bullpen. While that sort of role could still be in the forecast for Long during the final month of the season, he was deployed as a piggyback starter Sunday with the Giants deliberately limiting DeSclafani's workload in his first start coming off the injury. DeSclafani covered three innings (64 pitches) against Atlanta, but he should be in line to handle a more traditional starting role when his next turn comes up next weekend against the Dodgers. With that in mind, Long shouldn't be counted on to see this sort of workload out of the bullpen moving forward.

Giants' Sammy Long: Scoreless outing against Mets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Long (2-1) allowed three hits and one walk while striking out four across 5.1 innings to earn the win Tuesday against the Mets.

Long turned in his longest outing since June 20 after being given a few weeks to ramp up at Triple-A Sacramento. Filling the rotation spot of Anthony DeSclafani (ankle), Long pounded the strike zone for 19 called strikes and was the beneficiary of strong run support. Despite the effective outing, Long may not have the chance for another turn through the rotation as DeSclafani, Johnny Cueto (elbow) and Kevin Gausman (illness) are all expected to return imminently.

Giants' Sammy Long: Handed start Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants confirmed Long as their starting pitcher for Tuesday's game against the Mets, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

After being called up ahead of Sunday's game in Oakland, Long wasn't needed in relief, so he'll step into the rotation spot vacated by Anthony DeSclafani (ankle), who was moved to the injured list last weekend. Since the Giants are hopeful DeSclafani's injury is only a short-term concern, Long may only make one turn through the rotation, regardless of how he performs Tuesday. In his other eight outings (four starts) with the big club this season, Long has posted a 5.72 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 31:10 K:BB in 28.1 innings.

August 22, 2021 03:32 PM
Giants' Sammy Long: Summoned from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants recalled Long from Triple-A Sacramento on Sunday.

Long will be available out of the bullpen for Sunday's series finale in Oakland, but if he goes unused, he could step into the rotation Tuesday against the Mets as a replacement for Anthony DeSclafani (ankle), who was placed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move. Over eight appearances (four starts) with the big club this season, Long has gone 1-1 with a 5.27 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 31:10 K:BB in 28.1 innings.

August 15, 2021 03:36 PM
Giants' Sammy Long: Returns to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants optioned Long to Triple-A Sacramento on Sunday.

After Johnny Cueto (elbow) was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday, Long was summoned from Triple-A to fill in his spot in the rotation Saturday. Because he had been working out of the bullpen in his recent outings at Sacramento, Long didn't work deep into Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Rockies, covering two innings while giving up one run on two hits and one walk while striking out four. It's unclear if he'll be stretched back out for starting duty, but with Cueto in line for a brief stay on the IL, the Giants likely won't have an immediate need for Long in any case.

Giants' Sammy Long: Whiffs four over two innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Long allowed one earned run on two hits and one walk while striking out four across two innings in the loss to the Rockies on Saturday. He did not factor into the decision.

Long pitched only two innings before being relieved by Zack Littell. He allowed a solo home run to C.J. Cron in the second inning. The 25-year-old has just one appearance in which he didn't allow a run this season. His ERA is 5.72 with a 1.27 WHIP and 31 punchouts in 28.1 innings.

August 15, 2021 02:12 PM
Giants' Sammy Long: Called up ahead of start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Long was recalled Saturday and will start against the Rockies.

Long hasn't been particularly good in three starts and four relief appearances at the major-league level this season, struggling to a 5.81 ERA, though his 23.5 percent strikeout rate and 7.8 percent walk rate are both perfectly fine marks. He replaces Jay Jackson, who landed on the COVID-10 injured list.

Giants' Sammy Long: Sent down Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Long was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Saturday, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Long tossed two scoreless innings in his return from the 10-day injured list Wednesday, but he'll be sent to the minors after he gave up three runs (two earned) on a hit and a walk in a third of an inning Friday. His demotion will make room in the bullpen for Tony Watson, who was acquired via trade Friday.

Giants' Sammy Long: Two scoreless innings in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Long allowed two hits and a walk with two strikeouts across two innings in Wednesday's 8-0 loss to the Dodgers.

Long worked as a starter prior to a back strain that landed him on the injured list. He returned to a bullpen role Wednesday and delivered decent pitching in the fifth and sixth innings. The 26-year-old doesn't have a clear path back to the rotation without injuries arising, so he should be expected to provide multiple innings in relief going forward. He's pitched to a 5.19 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 27:8 K:BB through 26 innings this year.

Giants' Sammy Long: Returns from injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Long (back) was activated from the 10-day injured list Tuesday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Long has been on the shelf about three weeks with a back strain and will rejoin the active roster after covering one inning during a rehab appearance in the minors. The 26-year-old was working as a starter prior to the injury, but he'll be available out of the bullpen with San Francisco's rotation currently in good health.

Giants' Sammy Long: Tosses live batting practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Long (back) threw a 30-pitch live batting practice session Thursday, Amy Gutierrez of the Giants' official site reports.

Long threw a bullpen session Friday and has now taken the next step towards his return to the mound by facing live hitters. He'll likely have to continue to ramp up his workload prior to being activated, though it's unclear if that will require a rehab assignment.

July 16, 2021 09:12 PM
Giants' Sammy Long: Throwing bullpen Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Long (back) will throw a bullpen session Friday, Amy Gutierrez of the Giants' official site reports.

Long has been on the injured list since July 4 due to a mild lower-back strain, but he was able to resume mound work following the All-Star break. It's not yet clear when the southpaw could return or whether he could require a rehab assignment at some point.

July 6, 2021 10:20 AM
Giants' Sammy Long: Placed on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Long was placed on the 10-day injured list due to a mild lower-back strain Monday, retroactive to July 4, Mark W. Sanchez of KNBR 680 San Francisco reports.

Long gave up four runs in four innings during Saturday's win over Arizona, but he didn't factor into the decision. The southpaw's injury may have contributed to his struggles, and he'll now be sidelined through the All-Star break. The Giants haven't announced who could take Long's place in the rotation, but the team could simply push their weekend starters up a day following Thursday's scheduled day off. It's not yet clear when the 25-year-old will be able to return to action, but catcher Chadwick Tromp was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento in a corresponding move.

Giants' Sammy Long: Surrenders four in four innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Long went four innings during Saturday's 6-5 victory over Arizona, allowing four runs on seven hits and one walk with six strikeouts. He didn't factor into the decision.

Long was able to endure the game's first two innings unscathed but surrendered two runs apiece in the third and fourth frames and was removed with 84 pitches. This was the lefty's fifth start, and while he's allowed four runs or less in each outing he's averaging less than five innings per start. His season ERA sits at 5.63.

Giants' Sammy Long: Takes loss in Bay Area series
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Long (1-1) was tagged with the loss Sunday against Oakland after allowing four runs on four hits and three walks across five innings. He fanned three.

Long was unable to repeat what he had accomplished in his previous start against the Phillies, when he logged his first quality start of the season. Long has made just four starts this season and owns a rather unimpressive 4.95 ERA, though his 8.6 K/9 and 2.7 BB/9 are showing some promise considering he's made just two starts and four appearances at the big-league level. If he stays in the rotation, his next start should come this weekend on the road against Arizona.

Giants' Sammy Long: Earns first MLB win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Long (1-0) allowed two runs on four hits and a walk over six innings Sunday, striking out six and earning a win over the Phillies.

Long made his first career start Sunday and turned in a strong performance to pick up a memorable victory. The only damage against him was a two-run blast by J.T. Realmuto in the third inning, but his offense provided plenty of run support. The 25-year-old rookie owns a 4.20 ERA and a 16:3 K:BB through 15 innings this season. Long could get another turn in the rotation next weekend at home against Oakland.

Giants' Sammy Long: Earns starting nod
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Long will start Sunday's game against the Phillies, Mark W. Sanchez of KNBR 680 San Francisco reports.

The lefty will make his first big-league start after pitching two long-relief outings. Manager Gabe Kapler said Long, who figures to fill the fifth spot in San Francisco's rotation, "has really earned the opportunity."
