Jarrett Parker went 2-for-3 with a pair of doubles and two RBI in Thursday's win over the Phillies.

Parker gave the Giants a 4-1 lead with his two-run double off Aaron Nola in the fifth inning. With his pair of two-baggers, he has now collected seven doubles in 22 games played this season. He is working to a .268/.307/.437 triple slash in that space.

Sam Dyson recorded his 10th save of the season via a scoreless ninth inning in Thursday's win over the Phillies.

With the Giants holding a 5-4 advantage entering the ninth, Dyson recorded the first two outs without issue before losing a touch of command. He walked Andres Blanco and fell behind Cesar Hernandez before coming back to strike him out looking to end the contest. Dyson has been money with the Giants, especially of late -- he has not allowed a hit in any of his last four appearances. Since the Rangers traded him over to the National League, the reliever owns a 2.05 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 21/12 K/BB ratio in 26 1/3 frames. He is 10-for-11 in save chances since putting on the San Francisco uniform.

Jeff Samardzija surrendered four runs on eight hits over six innings in Thursday's win over the Phillies.

Samardzija struck out six and walked one on the evening. He coughed up a pair of solo home runs, too, with Cameron Rupp and Nick Williams taking him deep in the fifth and sixth innings, respectively. Up next on the docket for the veteran right-hander, a home start against the Brewers. Samardzija will carry a 4.79 ERA and 1.21 WHIP into that one.

Austin Slater (hip) is ready to resume running.

It's a good first step, but Slater is still nowhere close to a return after tearing the adductor muscle in his right hip just prior to the All-Star break. With little to play for, the Giants certainly won't rush him in his recovery. Before he went down, the 24-year-old posted a respectable .290 average with three homers in 100 at-bats for San Francisco.

Miguel Gomez suffered a setback in his recovery from a right knee injury.

Gomez had been slated to return Saturday following a short rehab assignment with High-A San Jose, but obviously that's no longer an option. He'll be in a holding pattern until the Giants clear him for rehab games. So far the rookie has eight hits including two doubles in 33 big league at-bats.
Aug 17 - 9:20 PM

Brandon Belt (concussion) will begin light cardio work on Friday.

It's Belt's first activity of any kind since going down with a concussion earlier this month. The Giants are going to take things slow with Belt and there's no guarantee he'll be back before the end of the year. Ryder Jones has been filling the void at first base.
Aug 17 - 9:18 PM

Kelby Tomlinson went 0-for-4 with a strikeout Wednesday in the Giants' loss to the Marlins.

He started at second base in place of Joe Panik, who landed on the 7-day concussion disabled list Tuesday. Tomlinson is batting just .240/.314/.281 this year.
Aug 16 - 4:28 PM

Matt Cain yielded five runs -- two earned -- over four innings Wednesday in a loss to the Marlins.

Cain struck out seven batters and issued just one walk, but his defense let him down as he fell to 3-10 on the year. The veteran right-hander is expected to slide back into a long relief role for the stretch run.
Aug 16 - 4:24 PM

Miguel Gomez (knee) is on track to be activated from the disabled list Saturday.

Gomez will first play in a couple of minor league rehab games Thursday and Friday at High-A San Jose. The 24-year-old infielder has been sidelined since August 8 because of inflammation in his right knee.
Aug 16 - 11:59 AM

Johnny Cueto (forearm) is scheduled to throw a 70-pitch bullpen session on Friday.

Cueto made it through a 25-pitch bullpen session Tuesday without issue and is now ready to ramp things up. He landed on the disabled list July 15 with multiple blisters on his right hand and then suffered a flexor tendon strain in a rehab start on July 31. The right-hander could return to the Giants' rotation sometime in September if he can avoid further setbacks.
Aug 16 - 11:57 AM

Buster Posey is getting the day off Wednesday.

Nick Hundley will start at catcher and bat sixth in the Giants' series finale at Marlins Park. Ryder Jones is at first base and batting seventh.
Aug 16 - 10:40 AM

Denard Span went 3-for-4 with a two-run homer, a walk, a steal and three runs scored as the Giants topped the Marlins 9-4 on Tuesday.

Span doesn't do it often, but he filled up the box score tonight; it's the sixth time in 10 big-league seasons that he's homered and stolen a base in the same game. The Giants would be happy to trade Span this month if anyone wanted an outfielder, but given his troubles defensively in center, it seems unlikely that anyone is going to take him on. He's been decent offensively in hitting .272/.322/.430 this year, but that's still not what anyone is looking for from a left fielder and that's probably what he should be going forward.
Aug 15 - 11:14 PM

Madison Bumgarner gave up four runs over six innings in a victory Tuesday against the Marlins.

Bumgarner got some rare run support tonight, as the Giants scored more than three runs for just the third time in his 11 starts this year. He's now 3-5 with a 2.99 ERA. He allowed a total of two runs in his previous two wins.
Aug 15 - 11:09 PM

Mark Melancon on Tuesday pitched his second scoreless inning since coming off the disabled list.

Melancon allowed just a single in the seventh to earn his first hold of the year. He'd seem to be in line to resume closing duties next week or perhaps even this weekend.
Aug 15 - 11:07 PM

Ryder Jones homered and doubled Tuesday in the Giants' win over the Marlins.

He had as many extra-base hits tonight as he did in his first 17 games combined. Jones is batting just .190, and even more problematic, he's walked once in 61 plate appearances. The Giants have little to lose by playing him, but he has a long way to go to earn a spot in their plans for 2018.
