  • Giants' Mike Yastrzemski: Belts clutch homer

    Yastrzemski went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and a sacrifice fly in Monday's 7-6 victory against the Rockies.

    Yastrzemski drove in a run with a sacrifice fly in the seventh inning to give San Francisco a two-run lead, but Colorado tied the score in the bottom of that frame. The outfielder then swatted a solo homer in the top of the ninth inning, and that held up as the winning run when Camilo Doval closed out the Rockies in the home half of the frame. Yastrzemski's long ball was just his third of the season after he left the yard a career-high 25 times in 2021.

  • Giants' Curt Casali: Swats two long balls Monday

    Casali went 3-for-4 with two home runs, three total runs and four total RBI in Monday's 7-6 victory versus Colorado.

    Batting out of the No. 9 spot in the order, Casali drove in each of the Giants' first four runs with a solo homer in the third inning and a three-run shot in the fifth. This was Casali's third career multi-homer game and his first since 2015. The backup catcher has been red hot over his past four contests, going 7-for-10 with three homers, eight RBI, four runs and three walks.

  • Giants' Camilo Doval: Notches sixth save

    Doval earned the save against the Rockies on Monday, tossing a scoreless inning during which he allowed one walk and struck out one batter.

    After the Giants pulled ahead with a run in the top of the ninth frame, Doval was asked to protect the lead against the heart of the Rockies' order. He walked C.J. Cron with one out but retired the following two batters to close out the contest. Doval extended his streak of appearances with at least one strikeout to 13 games, and he converted his sixth consecutive save opportunity. He appears to be firmly entrenched in his role as San Francisco's closer.

  • Giants' Alex Wood: Falters in fifth inning

    Wood did not factor in the decision against Colorado on Monday, pitching 4.1 innings and allowing three runs on six hits and one walk while striking out five.

    Wood gave up a run in the first inning but then kept the Rockies off the scoreboard in each of the following three frames. However, he was pulled in the fifth after giving up three straight one-out hits, and he was ultimately charged with two runs in the inning. This was the left-hander's shortest outing since his first start of the campaign, when he completed 4.1 frames against San Diego. Wood's next start will likely come at home against the Padres on Sunday.

  • Giants' Ryan Murphy: Makes season debut

    Murphy (back) made his season debut for High-A Eugene on Sunday, striking out seven and scattering one hit and one walk over four scoreless innings in a 10-0 win over Vancouver.

    Murphy was sidelined for the first five weeks of the High-A season due to a back injury, but he looked plenty healthy Sunday in his 2022 debut. The 23-year-old right-hander dazzled over a sample of 31.1 innings at Eugene in 2021 -- he posted a 1.44 ERA and 0.68 WHIP while striking out 48 -- so a promotion to Double-A Richmond could come in short order.

  • Giants' Anthony DeSclafani: Shifts to 60-day injured list

    DeSclafani (ankle) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Monday.

    DeSclafani has been out since late April with right ankle inflammation. He's been throwing for nearly two weeks but apparently won't be ready for game action until late June. Per Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic, the veteran righty apparently hasn't suffered any sort of setback, but the Giants want to take things slowly with his recovery.

  • Giants' Austin Slater: Heads to bench

    Slater isn't in the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Rockies, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

    Slater will get a breather in the series opener after playing in each of San Francisco's last nine games. LaMonte Wade shifts to left field and Joc Pederson will man right with Slater out of the starting nine.

  • Giants' Joey Bart: Gets night off

    Bart isn't in the starting lineup for Monday's game against Colorado, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

    San Francisco will give Curt Casali a chance behind the dish in this one after Bart caught the last two games of the weekend series against the Cardinals. He's collected a hit in each of his last three games but is off to a rough start at the dish in May, going 3-for-23 with a homer, two RBI and four runs scored over his first nine games.

  • Giants' Mauricio Llovera: Returns to big leagues

    Llovera was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento on Monday, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.

    The Giants will add a fresh arm to the bullpen in Llovera, who hasn't appeared for San Francisco in just over 10 days. Through four appearances in 2022, he's allowed one run on three hits and struck out five over four innings of relief work.

  • Giants' Yunior Marte: Back to Triple-A

    Marte was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Monday, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.

    Marte appeared in Sunday's series finale against the Cardinals but didn't fare well, as he surrendered four runs (two earned) on three hits and four walks over 1.2 innings. The right-hander owns a 7.71 ERA and 1.71 WHIP with a 7:6 K:BB across 9.1 frames so far this season in the big leagues.

  • Giants' Luis Gonzalez: Optioned to Triple-A

    Gonzalez was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Monday, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.

    Gonzalez owns an excellent .349/.397/.492 slash line through 21 games this season, adding two homers and three steals. He'll make way for now for Tommy La Stella (Achilles) to return from the injured list, but he seemingly did everything he could to earn another opportunity.

  • Giants' Tommy La Stella: Activated and in starting lineup

    La Stella (Achilles) was activated from the injured list Monday and will serve as the designated hitter against the Rockies, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

    La Stella underwent surgery on his right Achilles in October. The Giants expressed optimism during camp that he'd be ready to go by Opening Day, but he wound up missing over five weeks before returning for his season debut. He's ready to go after hitting .310 with a pair of homers in nine rehab games and should feature regularly against right-handers going forward.

  • Giants' Joey Bart: Connects for fourth homer

    Bart went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in Sunday's 15-6 loss to the Cardinals.

    Bart has hit safely in his last three games, and he hasn't struck out in his last two, the first time all season he's gone consecutive games without a strikeout. The catcher appears to be turning things around after starting May in an 0-for-15 skid. For the season, he's still slashing a shaky .185/.338/.385 with four homers, seven RBI, 11 runs scored and a 42.5 percent strikeout rate in 22 contests.

  • Giants' Joc Pederson: Hammers long ball

    Pederson went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Sunday's 15-6 loss to the Cardinals.

    Pederson went yard for the first time since April 25. Since that date, he's hit a pitiful .086 (3-for-35) in 13 games. That brutal slump has essentially erased his hot start -- he's slashing .244/.297/.524 with seven homers, 14 RBI, 13 runs scored and a stolen base through 91 plate appearances. Pederson's lost playing time to Luis Gonzalez, who has taken over the starting role in left field. Going forward, Pederson will likely be the designated hitter against right-handed pitchers, splitting that position with Wilmer Flores and Darin Ruf.

  • Giants' Luis Gonzalez: Hits three-run blast

    Gonzalez went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run in Sunday's 15-6 loss to the Cardinals.

    Both teams turned to position players to finish off the lopsided contest, and Gonzalez got the call on the mound for the Giants. He pitched 1.1 innings while allowing just one hit while also taking Albert Pujols deep on a three-run blast in the ninth inning. It'll count as Gonzalez's second homer of the season, and his other was back on April 25. The outfielder is hitting a sizzling .349/.397/.492 with 15 RBI, 11 runs scored and three stolen bases through 73 plate appearances, a performance that has earned him regular playing time in left field over Darin Ruf and Joc Pederson.

  • Giants' Carlos Rodon: Hammered by Cards

    Rodon (4-2) was handed the loss during Sunday's 15-6 defeat at the hands of the Cardinals, allowing eight runs on 10 hits and one walk with three strikeouts in 3.2 innings.

    Rodon struggled from the start, surrendering four runs in the first inning and four more in the fourth before being pulled in what was easily his worst outing. The eight runs surrendered exceed the seven the 29-year-old had given up through his first six starts, nearly doubling his ERA from 1.80 to 3.49 in the process. Also of concern is the three strikeouts Rodon has tallied in two of his last three outings, though a 12-strikeout performance is sandwiched between. He'll look to get back on track against San Diego next weekend.

  • Giants' Donovan Walton: Sent down Sunday

    Walton was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Sunday, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

    Walton was called up by the Giants on Friday and went 1-for-4 with a double and a strikeout in Saturday's loss to the Cardinals. However, he'll be sent to the minors to make room for Yunior Marte on the active roster.
