The Giants may be pushing Todd Wellemeyer out of the rotation

Hacker is having a great year in Fresno, but he’s got very little track record in the major leagues.  This is all about Wellemeyer stinking up the joint to the tune of 5.71 ERA and a K/BB ratio of 29/27.  Sure, he’s the fifth starter, but when your 1-4 guys are as awesome as Lincecum, Cain, Zito and Sanchez have been, that kind of sticks out.

    So excited for Eric Hacker. Great, great guy.

    Wellemeyer will probably be up soon. He’s been more than solid after his first two horrible AAA starts.
