Giants exercise contract options on Bumgarner, Sandoval
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Madison Bumgarner's $12 million contract option for the 2019 season has been exercised by the San Francisco Giants, keeping the 2014 World Series MVP and ace left-hander with the club for at least one more season after his past two years were shortened by injuries.
The Giants on Monday also exercised third baseman Pablo Sandoval's option for the $555,000 minimum.
Giants activate Strickland, shift Sandoval to 60-day DL
CINCINNATI (AP) — The San Francisco Giants have activated reliever Hunter Strickland from the 60-day disabled list.
Strickland broke his pinkie finger on his right hand when he punched a door in frustration after a blown save against Miami on June 18. He is 3-3 with a 2.84 ERA and 13 saves in 34 games.
Giants’ Sandoval out for the season with hamstring tear
PHOENIX (AP) — San Francisco Giants infielder Pablo Sandoval will miss the remainder of the season after tearing his right hamstring while sliding.
Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Thursday that the 2012 World Series MVP has a significant tear requiring surgery. Sandoval was injured while sliding into home plate Sunday against San Diego.
The 31-year-old Sandoval was hitting .248 with nine homers and 40 RBIs. He also played first and third base during his second stint with San Francisco.
SAN DIEGO (AP) — San Francisco Giants right-hander Johnny Cueto was placed on the disabled list Monday with a sprained right elbow, and manager Bruce Bochy said there's a "strong possibility" he will need reconstructive surgery.
Posey’s 4 hits help Giants end skid against Brewers
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Pablo Sandoval had no problem legging out his first triple in more than three years. Diving into home plate moments later was another matter and could land the Giants infielder on the disabled list with a right hamstring strain.
Right fielder Andrew McCutchen's bruised left foot may also be an issue — yet another blow for a team already beset by injuries much of the season.
SEATTLE (AP) — Pablo Sandoval hustled out of the box, and once the ball trickled past pitcher Edwin Diaz, he knew there was a chance of reaching base to keep San Francisco's ninth-inning rally alive.
In this case, a hustling Panda was speedy enough for the Giants — with a little help from a bad throw by Seattle second baseman Dee Gordon.
Steven Duggar scored from second base on Gordon's throwing error, giving the Giants a 4-3 win over the Mariners on Tuesday night.
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Dereck Rodriguez had no problems sliding back into San Francisco's starting rotation after a rare appearance out of the bullpen before the All-Star break.
The Giants even hit a couple of home runs Friday night — a rarity these days for manager Bruce Bochy's ballclub.
Rodriguez pitched three-hit ball into the seventh inning for his fourth consecutive win, sending the Giants to a 5-1 victory over the Oakland Athletics.
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Pablo Sandoval left Boston last season and returned to the San Francisco Giants realizing he no longer held Bay Area star status.
"I accepted my job and I came here to have fun," he said.
He certainly is lately, with Sandoval delivering again — even if not quite the way he did as 2012 World Series MVP.
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — At some point, Giants manager Bruce Bochy plans to give Pablo Sandoval a day off. It's just that Sandoval's bat, coupled with a slew of injuries in San Francisco's infield, is making it increasingly difficult to rest the portly third baseman.
Sandoval homered and had five RBIs to back an uneven start by Madison Bumgarner as the Giants beat the St. Louis Cardinals 13-8 on Sunday.
PHOENIX (AP) — San Francisco third baseman Pablo Sandoval left the Giants' game Sunday against the Arizona Diamondbacks with a bruised right elbow after being hit by a pitch in the third inning.
Sandoval stayed in the game for the moment but was replaced by Alen Hanson to start the bottom of the third. X-rays were negative.
Sandoval reached base in both of his plate appearances Sunday.
Sandoval lifts Giants in 16th, Longoria injures hand
MIAMI (AP) — It was a much-needed win for the San Francisco Giants, but it came at a great cost.
Pablo Sandoval's tie-breaking two-run single in the 16th inning lifted the Giants past the Miami Marlins 6-3 on Thursday, but the Giants also lost third baseman Evan Longoria to a broken left hand after he was hit by a pitch.
"A great win, but a tough loss," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said.
Scherzer takes rare loss, Richard flirts with no-no
WASHINGTON (AP) — Brandon Crawford went 4 for 4 with a two-run homer, and the San Francisco Giants dealt Max Scherzer his first loss in more than two months, defeating the Washington Nationals 2-0 on Sunday.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Brandon Crawford did something on Sunday that few hitters have done this season. He got the best of Max Scherzer.
Crawford went 4 for 4 with a two-run homer, and the Giants dealt Scherzer his first loss in more than two months, defeating the Nationals 2-0 to win the three-game series.
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Brandon Crawford credited a tip from Giants teammates Pablo Sandoval and Gregor Blanco for helping get his season turned around at the plate.
First baseman Brandon Belt, in turn, credited Crawford with helping keep San Francisco's offense going while the team awaits the return of several key injured players.
Crawford got three more hits and drove in four runs as the Giants beat the Colorado Rockies 9-4 on Saturday to end a three-game skid.
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Giants manager Bruce Bochy had no problem pulling his starting pitcher in the fourth inning. Cincinnati's Jim Riggleman hesitated to do the same thing and the Reds paid for it.
Pinch hitter Pablo Sandoval delivered a tying two-run single off Tyler Mahle, Andrew McCutchen drove in the go-ahead run with a grounder two batters later and the Giants beat the Reds 5-3 on Tuesday night.
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Johnny Cueto was still at home getting dressed when he saw Giants teammate and backup infielder Pablo Sandoval pitch a perfect ninth inning during the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Dodgers.
It wasn't exactly a Shohei Ohtani moment, but it was enough to make Cueto smile before he followed up with a strong outing of his own on the mound.
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Pablo Sandoval's role with the Giants is much different now.
"A guy who's going to be an important pinch hitter for us," manager Bruce Bochy said, praising the Panda's efforts to stay ready at all times.
That didn't keep Sandoval from calling his shot during a pregame chat with teammate Andrew McCutchen.
Cueto pitches Giants past A’s 5-1 in Bay Bridge game
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Considering the state of the San Francisco rotation, the Giants were hoping to see something positive from Johnny Cueto.
And Cueto delivered in his final start of spring training.
Cueto pitched into the sixth inning, Pablo Sandoval hit his fourth home run this spring and the Giants beat the Oakland Athletics 5-1 Sunday in the opener of the three-game Bay Bridge exhibition series.
Giants giving former sparkplug Gregor Blanco another shot
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Something about being back with the San Francisco Giants has Gregor Blanco feeling rejuvenated.
The veteran outfielder won two World Series rings with them and will forever be remembered by Giants fans for his diving catch that preserved former pitcher Matt Cain's perfect game in 2012.
At 34, Blanco hopes he can still run down a ball in the outfield that same way.
Altuve hits 3 home runs in Astros’ playoff opener
HOUSTON (AP) — Jose Altuve has hit three home runs for the Houston Astros against Boston in Game 1 of the AL Division Series.

Giants place Belt on concussion DL, call up Sandoval
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The San Francisco Giants placed first baseman Brandon Belt on the seven-day concussion list Saturday and called up third baseman Pablo Sandoval.
Belt was hit in the head by a 78.9 mph curveball from Arizona rookie Anthony Banda on Friday night. He was down while being attended to by Giants head athletic trainer Dave Groeschner.
It is believed to be Belt's fourth concussion with San Francisco.
BOSTON (AP) — Eduardo Nunez and Rafael Devers ended up being the bats the Boston Red Sox needed — and they came a few days before the trade deadline.
Red Sox President of Baseball Operations Dave Dombrowski had a hole to fill at third base after the club released Pablo Sandoval last month. Just before Monday's cutoff for making deals without waivers, Dombrowski opted to shore up the bullpen by acquiring Addison Reed from the New York Mets.
