Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle later tweeted that Elder was in Minnesota last night to scout the Twins bullpen, and not Chamberlain.
Schulman posted in The Splash that a big prize would be left-handed closer Glen Perkins. However, he’s not likely to go anywhere. The other intriguing Twins reliever is right-hander Casey Fien. He has a 3.55 ERA and a 0.88 WHIP in 38 games thus far. This means GM Brian Sabean and his staff are looking to upgrade this team, and not just allow this downward slide continue to gain momentum. Help should be on the way soon Giants fans!
Jim Bowden tweeted that manager Bruce Bochy told them during his interview that Mike Kickham has made his last start. Kickham will now take on the long reliever role, and Chad Gaudin will make his next start.
