Giants prospect Derek Law threw off a mound Wednesday for the first time since undergoing Tommy John surgery.

Law tossed 25 fastballs and reported feeling great. "I was supposed to go 50 percent," said Law. "I might have gone 60 percent." The 24-year-old relief prospect probably won't be cleared to join one of the Giants' minor league affiliates until July. He may be considered for a September callup if his rehab continues to go smoothly.

Brandon Crawford is currently battling shoulder soreness.

Crawford also dealt with it last year and it's not believed to be serious. He's still healthy enough to DH, like he'll do on Wednesday, but the Giants don't plan to have him play in the field until next week.

Madison Bumgarner was touched up for four runs over just 1 2/3 innings in Tuesday's loss to the Athletics.

Bumgarner surrendered a double, a triple and a home run among the five hits he permitted. The lefty had a huge workload in 2014 between the regular and postseason, but we'll only become worried if he starts to have a few of these kinds of outings when the regular seasons begins.
Mar 3 - 6:58 PM

Adam Duvall singled and launched a solo homer in Tuesday's Cactus League loss to the Athletics.

The longball came in the second innings off of left-hander Rudy Owens. Duvall, 26, didn't do much in his limited time with the Giants last season, but he's consistently displayed big power in the minors. He's hoping to earn an Opening Day bench spot.

Sergio Romo (shoulder) threw a bullpen session Sunday with no issues.

He's had some soreness in his pitching shoulder early on in camp, but Giants manager Bruce Bochy said the reliever was "letting it go" Sunday with no problems. Romo is slated to serve as the club's setup man in 2015.
Mar 1 - 3:04 PM

Madison Bumgarner will start the Giants' Cactus League opener against the Athletics on Tuesday.

The World Series MVP will head back to work, looking to improve upon a terrific 2014 campaign where he posted an 18-10 record, 2.98 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 219/43 K/BB ratio over 217 1/3 innings. While the large workload that he shouldered in the postseason is mildly concerning, the 25-year-old hurler should still be one of the top seven starting pitchers selected in fantasy drafts.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy announced Saturday that Matt Cain's Cactus League debut would be pushed back a couple of weeks.

That means Cain won't toe the slab in game action until at least March 10. There have been no setbacks in his recovery from elbow surgery, the Giants simply don't want to rush him. He remains on track to be ready for the start of the regular season.

Angel Pagan (neck) will take live batting practice on Saturday.

Pagan had been held out of workouts the previous two days and was scheduled to have Saturday off as well, but felt significant improvement in his neck. While he's on track to be ready for Opening Day, he remains a significant injury risk. He has averaged just 84 games played over the past two seasons.

Angel Pagan was held out of workouts for a second straight day Friday due to a sore neck.

It doesn't appear to be a major concern at this point, but with Pagan's history of injuries there's always some worry when anything pops up. Pagan is coming back from back surgery but entered camp with no restrictions.
Feb 27 - 12:52 PM

Giants signed INF Ronny Cedeno to a minor league contract.

Cedeno made it up to the majors briefly with the Phillies last season but spent most of the year at the Triple-A level, batting .313/.368/.431 with four homers. The 32-year-old is merely a depth signing.

Matt Cain (elbow, ankle) is on track to make a start during the first week of Cactus League play.

Cain was a bit behind the Giants' other starters when he arrived at spring training in Arizona, but that was by design. The right-hander needed surgery in August to remove painful bone chips and spurs from his right elbow and then underwent a minor procedure in September on his right ankle. He should be 100 percent for the beginning of the 2015 regular season.
Feb 26 - 2:37 PM

Sergio Romo (shoulder) is expected to begin throwing off a mound in a couple of days.

Romo showed up to camp with some soreness in his right shoulder, but it's so minor that the Giants didn't even call for a precautionary MRI. The 31-year-old has plenty of time to catch back up with the other relievers in camp. He'll serve as a setup man in 2015 for San Francisco closer Santiago Casilla.
Feb 26 - 2:34 PM

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Tim Hudson (ankle) will throw off the bullpen mound on Wednesday.

Hudson underwent surgery in early January to remove bone spurs from his right ankle and is a little behind the other pitchers in camp, but there's still plenty of time for him to get ready for the season. Ryan Vogelsong and Yusmeiro Petit will function as insurance if the veteran right-hander has a setback.
Feb 24 - 2:58 PM

Angel Pagan said Tuesday that he has no restrictions following back surgery.

Pagan dealt with a back injury for most of last season before undergoing surgery in September to repair a bulging disc and also narrow the nerve canal, but he's now back to 100 percent. "I'm good, I'm perfect," said Pagan. "I feel like never before." The 33-year-old projects to be the Giants' regular center fielder in 2015, but it's possible he'll be moved down in the order when Nori Aoki is in the lineup.
Feb 24 - 11:35 AM

Sergio Romo (shoulder) said he expects to be throwing by next week.

"At this point, I don't have to come in throwing 100 miles an hour. I'm ready physically," Romo said. The shoulder started bothering Romo last month, and he's been playing catch on flat ground even while not throwing off a mound. The 31-year-old is set to be a setup man for the defending champs this season.
