Pitchers

The Giants pitchers have struggles so far this spring. All of the starters have had a hard time, and there doesn’t seem to be any pitchers who were in the minors last year that will make the team. Most are long shots. Chris Stratton pitched 10 innings and a 1.82 ERA, but was sent to Triple A Sacramento on March 14th. Clayton Blackburn may be the closest we get, and he has struggled in 13 innings, pitching to a 6.23 ERA. Josh Osich, who pitched well down the stretch for the Giants, may likely make the team in a Jeremy Affeldt type role.

Next: Recap 3/25

You probably shouldn’t expect to see any of the big name pitching prospects make the team out of Spring Training. Names like Tyler Beede, Chris Stratton, and Adalberto Mejia will need more time in the minors, though while it’s a slim chance, you could see them down the stretch this year.
