SF Giants Rumors: Nothing Like Sweeping Dodgers, Wilson To Start Throwing, Pagan, Scutaro and Stratton News
It was a sweet road trip for the San Francisco Giants. It started by taking 2-out-of-3 from the Padres at Petco Park, and then sweeping the Dodgers at the Giants home stadium in Los Angeles (just kidding). The G-men now have a 2.5 game lead in the NL West. This is the first time the Giants have swept the Dodgers in L.A. since 2007.
Outfielder Angel Pagan has been on a tear as of late. Pagan went 13-for-27 (.481) with 4 RBI and 8 runs scored on the trip.
Infielder Marco Scutaro has been swinging a hot bat since he put on a Giants uniform. Scutaro is hitting .337 with 2 homers, 18 RBI, and 13 runs scored in 25 games for the Giants.
Andrew Baggarly of CSNBayArea.com says (via twitter) Brian Wilson will start throwing in October. That’s 6 months after his Tommy John surgery. Baggarly points out that Wilson looked good, healthy. However, his beard, not so much!
In another tweet, Baggarly says Giants prospect Chris Stratton has been released from the hospital. This is great news Giants fans. Let’s hope for a speedy recovery!
