Chris Heston struggled in his first major league start, giving up three runs on six hits over four innings in a no-decision against the Padres on Sunday.
Heston walked and pair and struck out two on the afternoon. He settled in after the Padres scored a pair of runs in the top of the first inning, but was unable to hang around through five innings for a chance at the victory. He's unlikely to crack the Giants Opening Day rotation in 2015. Sun, Sep 28, 2014 07:34:00 PM

Chris Heston will make his first major league start in the Giants season finale against the Padres on Sunday.

The 26-year-old right-hander posted a 3.38 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 125/51 K/BB ratio over 173 innings at Triple-A Fresno this season. Those looking for a streaming option on the final day of the season could do a lot worse than firing up Heston against an abysmal Padres squad.

Heston, 26, compiled a 3.38 ERA and 125/51 K/BB ratio in 173 innings across 28 starts this season. He has pitched almost exclusively as a starter in the minors, but the Giants will likely use him in long relief.

Giants designated RHP Chris Heston for assignment.

The move was made on Saturday in order to clear room on the 40-man roster for Jeff Francoeur. Heston has had a miserable year at Triple-A Fresno, posting a 5.80 ERA and 1.61 WHIP over 19 starts.

Chris Heston's miserable spring continued on Friday as he was torched for five runs on five hits in just four innings of work against the Rockies.

Heston also walked three while striking out two on the afternoon. He's the proud owner of a 9.28 ERA, 1.69 WHIP and 5/4 K/BB ratio through 10 2/3 innings this spring. The 24-year-old posted gaudy numbers at the Double-A level in 2012, but isn't close to securing a spot in the Giants rotation any time soon.
