Help is on the way!

Last, but certainly not least, there’s plenty of good news out of the injury ward.

Cain still has a ways to go, but Peavy has his sights set on rehab starts, and Pence made a huge step in his recovery over the weekend:

Another week or two and Hunter should be ready to roll.

The Giants might also be exploring a trade for a new third baseman/starting pitcher. Fingers crossed that a deal gets done (without sacrificing too much young pitching).

Happy Cinco de Drinko Mayo, Giants fans!
