Giants' Sean Hjelle: Expected back with Giants
Hjelle is expected to be recalled by the Giants on Sunday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Hjelle was optioned to the minors Saturday, but he will be able to return after Logan Webb (back) was placed on the injured list. The Giants are set to throw a bullpen game Sunday, and Hjelle last pitched Wednesday. That makes him a candidate to work multiple innings against the Diamondbacks.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Scott Alexander: Opening again Sunday
Alexander will serve as the opener Sunday against the Diamondbacks, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Alexander threw 1.1 scoreless innings to begin Saturday's game against Arizona, and he'll likely pitch a similar amount Sunday. The Giants are poised to throw a bullpen game, and Sean Hjelle is expected to be recalled from Triple-A Sacramento to fill a long-relief role for the contest.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Logan Webb: Done for season
Webb (back) was placed on the 15-day injured list Saturday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Webb was set to start Sunday against the Diamondbacks, but his season will instead be over after 32 starts. He posted a strong encore to his breakout 2021 campaign, maintaining a 2.90 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and a 163:49 K:BB across 192.1 innings. Sean Hjelle is expected to be recalled to take Webb's place on the active roster, and Scott Alexander will start a bullpen game for the Giants on Sunday.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Sean Hjelle: Optioned to minors
Hjelle was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Saturday, Evan Webeck of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Hjelle was recalled Wednesday and tossed four innings as the bulk reliever against the Rockies, picking up a win. His regular season may be done, though the Giants could still recall him if another player hits the injured list in a corresponding move. If he doesn't pitch in the big leagues against this season, he'll end his rookie campaign with a 7.20 ERA in 20 innings of relief.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Logan Webb: Could be done for season
Webb is dealing with back stiffness and may not make another start this season, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Webb's injury doesn't appear to be a major one, but there's little sense in risking anything with the Giants all but eliminated from postseason contention. The 25-year-old righty has seen his innings jump from 148.1 last year to 192.1 this season, so shutting him down at this point may be a good idea even if he weren't dealing with a minor injury. Webb's turn in the rotation is due up Sunday, so the Giants will likely have to make a decision quite soon.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Brandon Crawford: Heads to bench
Crawford will sit Saturday against Arizona, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
The Giants are all but officially eliminated from postseason contention, though the 35-year-old shortstop still finds himself playing a heavy role, starting nine straight games prior to Saturday's contest. Thairo Estrada will take his spot this time around.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Wilmer Flores: On bench Saturday
Flores isn't starting Saturday against the Diamondbacks, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Flores started the last two games and went 1-for-6 with two RBI, a run and a walk. He'll get a breather while J.D. Davis serves as the designated hitter and bats fifth.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Jarlin Garcia: Returns from paternity list
Garcia was reinstated from the paternity list Saturday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Garcia landed on the paternity list Wednesday but will rejoin the Giants after spending a few days away from the team. The southpaw made nine appearances in September and posted a 3.55 ERA and 0.95 WHIP in 12.2 innings.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Jakob Junis: Working behind opener
Junis will pitch behind opener Scott Alexander as the bulk reliever Saturday against the Diamondbacks, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Junis also served as a long reliever during last Sunday's win over Arizona and picked up the win, allowing a run on four hits and a walk while striking out seven in 5.1 innings. He should be able to handle a similar workload while pitching behind Alexander once again Saturday.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Scott Alexander: Serving as opener Saturday
Alexander will serve as the opener for Saturday's game against the Diamondbacks, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Alexander has tossed 7.2 scoreless innings over his last eight appearances, and he's converted both of his save chances while picking up three holds over that stretch. However, he'll serve as an opener for the second time in less than a week Saturday, while Jakob Junis should be available as a bulk reliever.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Austin Wynns: Knocks third homer
Wynns went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 10-4 win over the Diamondbacks.
Wynns has gone yard in two of his last four games, and he has multiple hits in five of his last eight. The surge has him up to a .264/.318/.365 slash line three homers, 21 RBI, 14 runs scored and seven doubles through 174 plate appearances. The 31-year-old has seen a slight uptick in playing time to go with his strong hitting, which has corresponded with Joey Bart hitting just .182 across 18 games in September.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Joc Pederson: Scores thrice in win
Pederson went 2-for-3 with a triple, a double, two walks and three runs scored in Friday's 10-4 win over the Diamondbacks.
Pederson went nearly the whole year without a triple, but he's hit three of them in the last four games. The outfielder has gone 13-for-29 (.448) with five extra-base hits in his last eight contests as he surges late in the season. He's up to a .276/.352/.530 slash line with 23 home runs, three triples, 19 doubles, three stolen bases, 70 RBI and 56 runs scored through 130 games overall.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Mike Yastrzemski: Stays warm Friday
Yastrzemski went 2-for-3 with a home run, a double, a walk, two RBI and three runs scored in Friday's 10-4 win over the Diamondbacks.
He's homered four times in his last 10 games, and he's added a double in three of those contests as well. It's a strong push to the finish line for Yastrzemski, who has had his ups and downs throughout 2022. That's most evident in his .214/.306/.390 slash line, though he's added 16 homers, 30 doubles, 54 RBI, 71 runs scored and five stolen bases while providing solid defense around the Giants' outfield....

Giants' Evan Longoria: Mashes out of slump
Longoria went 2-for-4 with two home runs and five RBI in Friday's 10-4 win over the Diamondbacks.
Longoria hadn't homered since Aug. 23, going 26 games without a long ball. He had just two multi-hit efforts in that span, but he ended the quiet stretch with a massive performance. He knocked a go-ahead three-run blast in the first inning and tacked on a two-run shot in the second. Longoria is up to 14 homers, 41 RBI, 31 runs scored and 13 doubles through 88 contests this year.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Thomas Szapucki: Moves past hip injury
Szapucki (hip) struck out two in a perfect inning Friday versus the Diamondbacks.
Szapucki hadn't pitched since Sept. 24 after exiting his last appearance with hip tightness. Friday marked his first clean outing this year, though his season-long numbers remain skewed by his lone appearance with the Mets in May in which he allowed nine runs in 1.1 innings versus the Giants. He has given up three runs in 11.2 innings across nine outings over two stints in the big leagues with the Giants since he was included in the Darin Ruf trade at the deadline.... See More ...

Giants' Alex Cobb: Grabs seventh win
Cobb (7-7) allowed four runs on nine hits and a walk while striking out five over five innings to earn the win over the Diamondbacks on Friday.
Cobb wasn't at his sharpest Friday, but he made it through five frames with enough run support to earn his first win in three starts. He's given up 11 runs over his last 15.1 innings. The right-hander now has a 3.79 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 144:43 K:BB through 144.2 innings across 27 starts this season. Cobb is projected for one more start in 2022, a road outing in San Diego next week.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Joey Bart: Riding pine Friday
Bart is not in Friday's lineup against the Diamondbacks, Sonja Chen of MLB.com reports.
Bart is hitting .136 with zero home runs in his last 10 games. Austin Wynns will start behind the dish and hit ninth.... See More ... See Less
