SAN FRANCISCO -- Andrew Suárez’s 2019 debut didn’t start or end on the best note, but in between, the 26-year-old left-hander showed why he could have staying power in the Giants’ rotation.

The toughest guy to strike out on every team

@williamfleitch
May 19, 2019

The world of baseball has embraced the strikeout in a way that is sometimes obsessive: For the second consecutive year, we’re on pace for more strikeouts than hits. Even the best hitters in baseball don’t sweat the strikeouts anymore. It’s all part of the game. This ends up making those

PHOENIX -- The Giants are struggling to string together wins early in the season, and their starting pitchers aren’t putting them in the best position to do so. Friday’s 7-0 series-opening loss to the D-backs at Chase Field marked their fifth loss in seven games and their 27th straight game

These 30 top prospects were Draft sleepers

May 17, 2019

With the 2019 MLB Draft edging closer each day, there's an increasingly heavy focus on the top players in this year’s class as teams aim to determine who they might take in the early rounds. But having a strong Draft involves more than a team simply doing well on paper

@matthewhleach
May 16, 2019

We tend to parse words to an extreme degree in baseball. Does “most valuable” really mean “best?” [Side note: Nearly all of the time, yes, it does]. “Control” isn’t exactly the same as “command.” Are an “ace” and a “No. 1” starter the same thing? Depends who you ask. So

Mock Draft: Rutschman remains at top

@JimCallisMLB
May 17, 2019

As in my first attempt at projecting the first round two weeks ago, I still foresee six position players going in the first six picks, followed by teams scrambling to snap up the four best college or junior college pitchers. Oregon State catcher Adley Rutschman remains the favorite to become

May 15, 2019

SAN FRANCISCO -- The opener debuted at Oracle Park on Tuesday night, though the first iteration of the unconventional pitching strategy did not play out as the Giants had hoped. Right-handed reliever Nick Vincent drew his first start of the season, but he couldn’t avoid the same pitfall that has

SAN FRANCISCO -- Yasiel Puig may no longer be a member of the Dodgers, but his change of uniform has done little to quell his longstanding feud with Giants ace Madison Bumgarner. Bumgarner delivered a sharp retort after Puig crushed an inside fastball to left field for a solo home
