    Beede sent down, supposedly in favor of Sammy. But Sammy won’t be added today. They don’t HAVE to call anyone up until Tuesday, so I don’t expect to hear any news until then.

    I would list the candidates as...

    Okert, Snelton, Herb, Gomez and...

    Mac.

    I doubt it will be Mac, but he has to at least be an option to consider.

    Doesn't Okert have to stay with Sacramento for 10 days before he can get called back up? If so, he won't be able to get a call up until the 21st unless there is a guy placed on the disabled list. Gomez wouldn't be available until the 20th. Suarez isn't available until the 22nd. Herb hasn't looked that good. So either they just activate Samardzija or bring up Snelten (who hasn't looked that good himself). I don't see a position player being brought up.

    I was too lazy to look up the option dates on those guys. I thought maybe the 10 day period had passed already. With Beede being a starter, they aren’t losing a bully arm, so maybe they use that as an excuse to call up Mac.

    Or, maybe they go with Garcia with Posey banged up a bit. Give him a couple extra days to rest his thumb.

    Well, these are the guys eligible to fill that roster spot without having to remove someone from the 40 man roster (not counting Smith or Chase Johnson):
    Johnny Cueto
    Tyler Herb
    Jeff Samardzija
    DJ Snelten
    Aramis Garcia
    Miguel Gomez
    Ryder Jones
    Austin Slater
    Mac Williamson

    I can see Snelton getting a 1-day call. He is active for Tuesday, then is sent back down for Wednesday’s game when Cueto is activated. The play before Saturday will dictate who is optioned for Sammy’s activation.

    My bet is on Derek Law, after tonight's game.

    Considering today is an off day and tomorrow Cueto is scheduled to start, I would think that Cueto will just get activated tomorrow. No one called up in the meantime.

    According to MLB Atbat, Cueto is scheduled for tomorrow.


    Nevermind...

    Latest On Mark Melancon
    Based on this article, I'd say that Melancon is at least a month away from returning. We may not see him in game action until June.

    It's not going to happen (nor should it because the Giants were dumb enough to sign him knowing he was injured anyway), but it would be nice if Melancon opted-out after this season as a courtesy for being one of the most useless investments in Giants' history

    I think we all knew this was going to be a bad signing when all was said and done, but he filled a CRITICAL hole that looked like was all that was missing to make the ‘17 team a true contender.

    Yeah. That didn’t work out. And he is proving to be so much more of a bust than even the signings biggest opponents didn’t dare imagine.

    I was okay with him because he seemed to be consistent and was much cheaper than the two or three bigger named closers on the market. My only issue was the length of the deal. I would have much rather it been a 2 year or 3 year deal. I didn't expect him to be injured so much and struggle as much as he has when healthy, but has he even been healthy since playing with the Giants?

    Nope. He arrived at ST last year with his sore firearm and the rest has been history.

    He was injured before ST. He was injured when they signed him

    I didn't know this (or completely forgot, but it doesn't sound familiar). That looks pretty bad on the FO.

    They did a similar thing with Mark DaRosa.

    Apparently it was an annual thing with him, IIRC. It just was never serious. I'll have to look it up again, but yeah he was damaged goods and the Giants knew it.

    Just added Cueto to the active roster.

    Looks like Smith and Sammy are not far behind...

    Sounds like Derek Law and Josh Osich are about to embark on the shuttle to Sacramento.
