The Giants will return to AT&T Park tonight for a three game series against the Padres. Matt Cain (1-5, 4.52 ERA) will make the start for the Giants at 7:15pm PT and Cuban right-hander Odrisamer Despaigne will make his debut tonight for the Padres after Andrew Cashner was scratched. Despaigne was 1-3 with a 6.03 ERA in the minors.
It looks like Joe Panik will be the everyday second baseman after yesterday’s performance for the foreseeable future. Ehire Adrianza is also out with a hamstring injury and it was just announced he was put on the DL.

The Panik family went back east, took red eye after yesterday’s game. He’s alone tonight except for his new 40,000 friends. #sfgiants

Tonight they will honor Roger Craig at the park.
Looks like the Giants have another injury on their hands with Ehire Adrianza.
Bochy said Ehire Adrianza is getting an MRI on right hamstring. Felt soreness a couple days ago. “He’s day to day right now.” #SFGiants

It looks like Angel Pagan won’t be headed to the DL.
Brandon Belt will start rehab in San Jose this week.
Bochy confirmed Belt will start his rehab later this week in San Jose, no later than Friday probably earlier. #SFGiants
