Giants reinstate Alex Dickerson, Darin Ruf from injured list

The return of the duo also led to a somewhat surprising demotion for a teammate.

Lots of depth and lots of moves.

The San Francisco Giants have a lot of depth. That’s a very good thing to have, but it occasionally can feel frustrating.

Such was the case on Monday, when the Giants activated left-handed outfielder Alex Dickerson and right-handed outfielder and first baseman Darin Ruf off of the 10-day Injured List. To make room for the two power hitters, the Giants optioned left-handed third baseman Jason Vosler and left-handed...

MLB’s VP talks about the league’s celebration of Pride month.

Hello and happy Sunday.

The San Francisco Giants have been celebrating Pride month this June, and became the first team in Major League Baseball to don Pride colors on their jersey earlier this season, when they had a Pride-colored patch on both the sleeve and hat of their home uniforms.

They also released an important video in which Amy G talks with Billy Bean (not to be confused...

The Giants are flying high as they welcome the Phillies into town.

The San Francisco Giants are four games into a seven-game home-stand, and they’ve already secured a winning record. That’s a pretty lovely thing.

But they won’t be satisfied with throwing the last three games away, even if it still leaves them with a winning record.

The Giants were able to find some offensive rhythm this week, thanks in part to the...

Bad news on the prospecting front.

Hello and happy Friday.

The San Francisco Giants, on the whole, had good news on Thursday, when they cruised to a 10-3 win and a series sweep over the Arizona Diamondbacks.

But down on the farm there was some bad news.

In the AA Richmond Flying Squirrels game, right-handed starting pitching prospect Sean Hjelle was pulled due to an apparent leg injury. He had to be helped off the field.

Giants get a lot of hits, score a lot of runs, have a dandy old time

Photo by Lachlan Cunningham/Getty Images

It’s a sweep, and a historic one at that.

I have a little bit of a confession to make. I was a tiny bit scared of the San Francisco Giants four-game series against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

It had nothing to with a lack of faith in the Giants.

It had nothing to do with San Francisco mustering a paltry three runs in their previous four games.

It had everything to do with the Diamondbacks being unsustainably bad.

It’s not that I thought the...

The San Francisco Giants are going for a four-game sweep against the lowly Arizona Diamondbacks. Personally, I think four-game sweeps are the best kinds of sweeps.

Thursday BP: Splashtrzemski shirt season

We’ve got some new Giants merch for you.

Hello and happy Thursday, you beautiful people.

If you’re anything like me, you’re probably still thinking about the San Francisco Giants hilariously disrespectful comeback win against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday, in which they fought back from a 7-0 deficit, culminating in a truly glorious Mike Yastrzemski grand slam.

So we’ve got another t-shirt for you, because great things should be commemorated, and Yaz should be worn on your...
