Giants reliever Santiago Casilla is doing well recovering from recent surgery on his right knee which removed a cyst. In fact, according to CSN Bay Area’s Andrew Baggarly, the right-hander is doing so well that manager Bruce Bochy estimates a return in two to three weeks. Casilla wasn’t expected to return until after the All-Star break.
Casilla went on the DL with a 1.89 ERA in 19 innings and has been nothing short of dominating since joining the Giants prior to the 2009 season. In 189.1 innings with the Giants, Casilla has a 2.19 ERA. In his absence, however, the Giants haven’t skipped a beat. They still own the National League’s third-best bullpen ERA at 3.07 and have featured six other relievers to cross the 20-inning threshold with an ERA below 2.60: closer Sergio Romo, Jose Mijares, Jeremy Affeldt, Javier Lopez, Chad Gaudin, and Jean Machi.
