Giants RHP prospect Chris Stratton supplied seven shutout frames Tuesday in a win for Triple-A Sacramento.
He scattered six hits and two walks while collecting eight strikeouts. The right-hander has now won five of his last six starts with a 1.72 ERA during that stretch. Stratton has made seven appearances out of the Giants' bullpen this season, though he's mostly been used as a starter in the minor leagues. The former first-round pick is tied for third in the Pacific Coast League with 12 wins this season. Aug 31 - 3:19 PM

Giants optioned RHP Chris Stratton to Triple-A Sacramento.

Stratton holds a respectable 3.60 ERA in seven outings for the Giants this year but his underwhelming K/BB (6/5) was probably a factor in his demotion. The 25-year-old should get a few more cameos in the big leagues this season.

Giants recalled RHP Chris Stratton from Triple-A Sacramento.

Stratton barely had a chance to unpack his bags and now he's headed back to Sacramento. At least it's only an hour-and-a half drive. Stratton was sent down when the team activated Matt Cain from the disabled list. Now Cain's headed back there and Stratton will join the Giants out of the bullpen. He owns a 3.00 ERA in three appearances for the Giants this year.

Giants optioned RHP Chris Stratton to Triple-A Sacramento.

Matt Cain (hamstring) is back from the disabled list and will take his spot on the active roster. Stratton allowed one run over three innings during his stint with the big club and notched his first major league win over the weekend.

Giants recalled RHP Chris Stratton from Triple-A Sacramento.

The 25-year-old right-hander will replace injured Matt Cain (hamstring) in the Giants' starting rotation, both physically and statistically. Stratton had compiled a 6.02 ERA in 51 1/3 innings for Triple-A Sacramento with just 36 strikeouts. How Cain-like, indeed.

Giants purchased the contract of RHP Chris Stratton from Triple-A Sacramento.

The 25-year-old right-hander is now protected from next month's Rule 5 draft. Stratton posted a 3.95 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 111/62 K/BB ratio over 148 innings between Double-A Richmond and Triple-A Sacramento in 2015. The former first-round selection could get a look as a spot starter for the Giants in 2016.

Giants prospect right-hander Chris Stratton is in stable condition after being hit in the head by a line drive during batting practice on Tuesday.

Stratton, who was selected No. 20 overall in June's First-Year Player Draft, was standing behind second base when he was struck by the line drive. Giants vice president Bobby Evans said that he was preliminarily diagnosed with a concussion. His first pro season is likely over. The 22-year-old right-hander has a 2.76 ERA and 16/10 K/BB ratio over 16 1/3 innings in eight games (five starts) with Low-A Salem-Keizer.

Giants signed 2012 first-round pick RHP Chris Stratton.

He'll get $1.85 million, which is the slot value for the 20th overall selection. Stratton fell farther than expected in the draft and looks to have a good shot to become a mid-rotation starter down the line.

The Giants selected Mississippi State RHP Chris Stratton with the No. 20 pick in the 2012 draft.

San Francisco practically sprinted to the podium to get this pick in, as they probably didn't believe they'd have a shot at Stratton when the evening began. Stratton began the season in the bullpen, but quickly became the Bulldogs' ace and led the SEC in strikeouts. He has an ideal frame and a four-pitch arsenal. All of his tools are projected to be between average and above-average at the major league level. Assuming the late-bloomer fulfills that prophecy, the Giants just snagged no worse than a middle-of-the-rotation starter.
