Erick Aybar is listed as day-to-day after leaving Friday's game against the Marlins with a foot contusion.

Aybar was pulled after getting hit on the foot by a pitch from Adam Conley in the fourth inning. He may sit out on Saturday as a precaution, but expect him to return to the field before the weekend is through.

Matt Cain was forced to leave Friday's start against the Rockies in the second inning due to an apparent injury.

It's unclear at the moment exactly what happened, but Cain shook his head and looked toward the dugout after throwing a pitch in the second inning. Given his history of arm troubles, it could be something serious which would be a tough blow for the veteran right-hander and for the Giants after Cain had finally put together three straight quality starts. The Giants should have an update on his status shortly.

Jaime Garcia yielded two runs over seven innings in Friday’s victory over the Nationals.

It was an encouraging showing after back-to-back shaky outings. Garcia allowed seven hits (including a solo homer by Danny Espinosa) and walked just one batter while notching four strikeouts. He evened up his record at 4-4 with the victory and holds a 3.47 ERA and 55/21 K/BB ratio in 59 2/3 innings over 10 starts. The southpaw will try to keep it going next week against the Brewers.

Max Scherzer took the loss Friday against the Nationals after giving up five runs over seven innings.

It was a strange outing. Scherzer gave up just three hits, but one of them was a grand slam by Stephen Piscotty in the third inning. He also walked in a run (one of four on the night) before the grand slam. Scherzer retired 14 batters in a row after the grand slam and finished with six strikeouts. Still, issues with the long ball are hurting him. He leads the majors with 15 home runs allowed and owns a 4.05 ERA through 11 starts overall. He’ll look for improvement against the Phillies next week.

Stephen Piscotty launched a grand slam in a 6-2 win over the Nationals on Friday.

Max Scherzer walked Matt Holliday with the bases loaded to force in a run before Piscotty delivered the big blow of the game. It was the first grand slam of his career. The 25-year-old has built off an impressive rookie season by batting .324/.395/.505 with six homers and 30 RBI over 48 games.
May 27 - 9:57 PM

Greg Garcia homered, drew two walks, and two runs scored Friday against the Nationals.

Garcia, who was called up on Thursday, got the chance to start at third base and hit leadoff with Matt Carpenter away on paternity leave. The 26-year-old has made the most out of his limited opportunities in the majors, but he’ll likely head back down to Triple-A when Carpenter is ready to return.
May 27 - 9:56 PM

Danny Espinosa socked a solo homer in Friday’s loss to the Cardinals.

Espinosa has now homered in back-to-back games. It’s nice to see him finally pick things up, but it’s likely just a matter of time before top prospect Trea Turner takes over at shortstop. Even with the power over the past two days, Espinosa is batting just .203/.299/.320 over 48 games. Fortunately, he has provided value with his defense.
May 27 - 9:56 PM

Anthony Rendon went 2-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base Friday against the Cardinals.

Rendon now has six multi-hit games in his last 10. He has pulled his batting average up from .229 to .262 along the way. After stealing only one base over 80 games during his injury-plagued 20145, he’s already up to six stolen bases this year.
