Giants purchased the contract of 1B/OF Travis Ishikawa from Triple-A Sacramento.

Ishikawa was designated for assignment by the Giants at the end of May, but he passed through waivers unclaimed and is now getting another shot in San Francisco. Last year's NLCS hero probably won't carry any sort of fantasy value, though he may see some starts in the outfield while Nori Aoki (leg) is sidelined.
Jun 24 - 4:45 PM

Giants sent 1B/OF Travis Ishikawa outright to Triple-A Sacramento.

Ishikawa has decided to accept the assignment and remain in the organization. Last season's NLCS hero provides the Giants with some solid depth.
May 31 - 1:24 PM

Giants activated 1B Travis Ishikawa from the 15-day disabled list; designated him for assignment.

Ishikawa, the hero of last year's NLCS, is now off the Giants' 40-man roster. He had been on the disabled list since the end of spring training with a lower back strain.
May 25 - 1:20 PM

Travis Ishikawa (back) has resumed his rehab assignment with High-A San Jose.

Ishikawa had a setback with his back a couple weeks ago, but he's ready to roll again. Assuming he doesn't have any other bumps in the road, he should rejoin the Giants relatively soon.
May 4 - 6:04 PM

Travis Ishikawa (back) suffered a setback during his rehab assignment.

He's in San Francisco to receive treatment on the back, and no new timetable has been established for his return. It was expected to be a short stay on the disabled list for Ishikawa, but this obviously throws a wrench in those plans.
Apr 22 - 8:10 PM

Travis Ishikawa (back) will begin a minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Sacramento on Saturday.

Ishikawa is only expected to need a couple of games to get his timing back and then should rejoin the Giants bench after a minimal stint on the disabled list. It's unfortunate that he's been sidelined at the same time as Brandon Belt or he could've found his way into additional playing time.
Apr 10 - 9:03 PM

Travis Ishikawa (back) hopes to play in extended spring training games on Wednesday and Friday.

Ishikawa admitted that his back bothered him throughout spring training, as he thinks he could have hurt it during the postseason last year. However, he's feeling much better now and it sounds like his disabled list stint could be a short one.
Apr 6 - 7:57 PM

Giants placed INF/OF Travis Ishikawa on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to March 30, with a lower back strain.

A recent MRI showed no serious issues, but the veteran is still very sore and wasn't able to get enough at-bats to be ready for the regular season. He should be able to rejoin the team in mid-April.
Apr 5 - 4:15 PM

Travis Ishikawa (back) will likely start the season on the disabled list.

"He’s still pretty sore," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. "The DL is a possibility, no question. This has put him behind and we’ll leave him behind so if he can get at-bats, he’ll do it here (in minor league games)." An MRI on Ishikawa's back showed nothing serious, but it just appears to be a time crunch at this point. He shouldn't be sidelined for long.
Apr 1 - 7:27 PM

An MRI on Travis Ishikawa's back came back negative.

Ishikawa had to be lifted from Sunday's game after his back tightened up on him, but it appears he'll be fine. He's expected to return to game action on Thursday.
Mar 30 - 7:18 PM

Travis Ishikawa was removed from Sunday's Cactus League contest due to back tightness.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said afterwards that Ishikawa's back flared up during the game. He'll be re-evaluated on Monday. The injury appears to be minor and shouldn't affect his status for the start of the regular season.
Mar 29 - 8:29 PM

Travis Ishikawa launched a two-run homer and scored three times in Thursday's Cactus League contest versus the White Sox.

Ishikawa walked three times in addition to his homer in his first four plate appearances before the Sox finally retired him on a groundout in the ninth inning. The 31-year-old isn't guaranteed a bench spot even after last year's NLCS heroics, but he's certainly helped his case by batting .500 early on this spring.
Mar 12 - 10:08 PM

Travis Ishikawa had a strong day at the dish on Friday, going 3-for-4 with a triple and two RBI as the Giants trounced the Rangers 12-3 in Cactus League play.

Ishikawa also scored a run in the contest. He's working to secure a spot as a reserve on the Giants bench after slashing .274/.333/.397 with a pair of homers and 15 RBI in 73 at-bats with them down the stretch in 2014.
Mar 6 - 8:06 PM

Giants and OF Travis Ishikawa avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $1.1 million contract.

Ishikawa was eligible for arbitration for the second time in his career. He batted just .252/.311/.393 in 2014 and probably should have been a non-tender candidate, but the Giants weren't going to dump the guy who sent them to the World Series with a walkoff home run against the Cardinals in Game 5 of the NLCS. Ishikawa probably won't have a major role with San Francisco in 2015.
