Ryan Vogelsong yielded four runs (three earned) in six innings, taking his first loss since April 29 in Monday's start against the Pirates.

Vogelsong was strong over the first four innings, but the Pirates broke a 2-2 tie in the fifth thanks to a Neil Walker two-run double. It was one of five hits the right-hander served up while walking two and striking out five. Vogelsong had a terrific month of May, but still has a subpar 4.26 ERA with a 1.33 WHIP and a 43/22 K/BB ratio over 57 innings. He'll try again for his fifth win in a road start versus the Phillies.

Giants released RHP J.C. Gutierrez.

Steve Adams of MLBTradeRumors.com says Gutierrez has exercised the opt-out clause in his contract. The 31-year-old has posted a 4.94 ERA with 21 strikeouts over 23 2/3 innings at Triple-A Sacramento this season. He should be able to latch on elsewhere pretty quickly.

Giants released RHP Robert Coello.

Coello used the June 1 opt out in his minor league agreement with the Giants and is now free to sign with a new organization. The 30-year-old right-hander had posted a 3.50 ERA, 1.34 WHIP, and 49/28 K/BB ratio in 64 1/3 innings (11 starts) this season at Triple-A Sacramento.

Sergio Romo was unavailable on Sunday due to illness.

Romo was feeling a bit under the weather, which is why the Giants top setup man wasn't used late in the game. He should be available for Monday's contest against the Pirates.
May 31 - 7:34 PM

Brandon Belt went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Braves.

Belt hit a solo homer off of Julio Teheran in the second inning. Brandon Crawford followed Belt's homer with a solo shot of his own, as the Brandons went back-to-back. The nice game boosted Belt's season slash to .306/.383/.544.
May 31 - 7:27 PM

Madison Bumgarner allowed three runs on five hits over 6 1/3 innings during Sunday's loss to the Braves.

Bumgarner struck out six and walked just one. The big blow against the ace came in the form of a two-run homer by Juan Uribe in the seventh inning. The homer made the score 3-2 in a game that the Braves would ultimately win 7-5. Despite the rough moment here and there, Bumgarner's been moving steadily along through the season and currently holds a 3.12 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 61/13 K/BB ratio across 69 1/3 innings. He'll try to continue his good run of pitching when he faces the Phillies next Saturday afternoon.
May 31 - 7:22 PM

Giants pitching prospect Tyler Beede contributed a career-high 11 strikeouts Saturday for High-A San Jose.

His previous career-high was six. He only allowed four hits over seven shutout innings but the bullpen blew a two-run lead in the eighth, costing Beede what would have been his third win of the season. The Vanderbilt product is now third in the California League in ERA (2.24) and fifth in WHIP (1.15). With a few more starts like this, the 23-year-old could be headed to Double-A Richmond.

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 signed INF/OF Kevin Frandsen to a minor league contract.

He's now back in the organization where he began his career. Frandsen, 33, has hit .309/.352/.333 at Triple-A this season and gives the Giants a solid depth utility option.
May 31 - 12:32 PM

Giants released RHP Kevin Correia.

He had a 3.58 ERA in six starts for Triple-A Sacramento but didn't receive consideration for a promotion, so Correia has exercised the opt-out clause in his contract. He should catch on quickly elsewhere on a minor league pact.
May 31 - 9:37 AM

Tim Lincecum surrendered four runs and eight hits in 4 1/3 innings Saturday in a loss to the Braves.

Lincecum has been a big success story for the Giants thus far, but the peripherals don't match the nice ERA. He'll probably have more outings like this going forward.
May 31 - 2:13 AM

Matt Cain (elbow) is expected to pitch three innings Wednesday in extended spring training.

Cain could be getting closer to a rehab assignment. He's been sidelined by a strained flexor tendon. Cain has pitched just 274 2/3 innings since 2013. Before that, he had thrown 200+ innings in six straight seasons. The Giants are hoping to have him back before the All-Star break.
May 30 - 8:38 PM

Kevin Correia is expected to be granted his release by the Giants, ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports.

Correia had a June 1 opt out. Even with all of the Giants' injuries, he hadn't been called up to the majors yet this season. He had a 3.58 ERA in six starts for Triple-A Sacramento.
May 30 - 4:11 PM

Buster Posey drove in three runs with a homer and a double as the Giants topped the Braves 4-2 on Friday.

Following a quiet April, Posey has hit .333 with five homers, 17 RBI and 17 runs scored in May. He's also on pace to walk more than he's struck out for the first time in his career (17/20 K/BB).
May 30 - 2:02 AM

Tim Hudson pitched seven strong innings, allowing just one run, in a win over the Braves on Friday.

It was the first time Hudson faced the Braves since wrapping up his nine-year stint in Atlanta in 2013 (he did pitch against them once while with the A's). He's struggled to string together consecutive quality starts this season, but he still looks pretty good when he's on. His days as a mixed-league starter seem over, but he should provide value in NL-only leagues the rest of the way.
