Giants Send Down Matt Downs – Recall Waldis Joaquin

By Bryan Rose

After using five pitchers last night, the Giants felt they were in need of another arm and that came at the expense of Downs. With the return of Freddy Sanchez, Downs was expendable even with the injury to Edgar Renteria.

Waldis Joaquin struggled in his 4 2/3 innings for the Giants earlier this year, but settled down when he was sent back to Fresno. He had a 1.23 ERA in 8 appearances for the Fresno Grizzlies.
