    He didn’t play in 2013, but it wasn’t for lack of interest on his part. Now he’s done, though: Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reports that Ryan Theriot is officially retired. Theriot ends his career with a line of .281/.341/.350 and 17 homers across eight big league seasons with four teams, mostly the Cubs. He…

  2. Stephen Strasburg fine after being struck by line drive

    Mar 22, 2013, 7:32 PM EDT

    Stephen Strasburg

    Nationals fans collectively held their breath after Stephen Strasburg was hit on the arm by a Prince Fielder line drive. A Ryan Theriot line drive, you’re probably going to be okay, but a Prince Fielder liner? I’d preemptively draft a will before ever throwing him a pitch. Strasburg, though, is just fine. Via Mark Zuckerman:…

  3. Quiet Riot? Ryan Theriot’s playing career may be over

    Ryan Theriot has failed to latch on anywhere this spring. Hank Schulman hears that he’s assessing his options: I’m hearing Ryan Theriot, who is still unsigned, is thinking of becoming an agent. #sfgiants. — Henry Schulman (@hankschulman) March 18, 2013   Which inspires one to wonder: what is an agent’s version of TOOTBLAN? Anyway, if…

  4. Rangers and Indians among teams interested in Ryan Theriot

    San Francisco Giants Photo Day

    As we count down the final days before pitchers and catchers report to their respective complexes in Florida and Arizona, teams are currently trying to put the finishing touches on their rosters. The Rangers and Indians are two examples of this, as FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal reports that both clubs have interest in free agent…

  5. The Phillies like Josh Hamilton, but are they serious?

    Dec 12, 2012, 10:30 AM EDT

    Josh Hamilton

    The rumors of Josh Hamilton going to the Phillies seem kind of light. There was reportedly an offer — a three-year deal, reported by 94WIP’s Anthony Gargano — but there’s not a sense that it’s a game-changer or anything. At the moment the Rangers and the Mariners seem like the two teams most interested in Hamilton’s…

  6. Free agents can sign starting at 12:01AM Saturday

    Oct 29, 2012, 2:00 PM EDT


    The season is over and the hot stove is upon us. It used to be we had to wait a while until players filed for and then signed in free agency. It doesn’t work that way anymore. Guys whose contracts have expired immediately become free agents after the season ends (i.e. last night) and signings…

    NLCS Cardinals Giants Baseball

    Lil Wayne was at Game 6 of the NLCS last night because he’s apparently friends with Giants utility infielder Ryan Theriot–seriously, it’s true–and sang “Take Me Out To The Ball Game” during the seventh-inning stretch:

  12. Marco Scutaro is in the Giants’ lineup for Game 3

    Marco Scutaro Getty

    It looks like Game 3 of the NLCS might be postponed by rain, but if the Cardinals and Giants do play today Marco Scutaro will be in San Francisco’s lineup. Scutaro exited Game 2 early after injuring his left hip on Matt Holliday‘s takeout slide at second base and was diagnosed with a muscle strain.…

    St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Lohse delivers a pitch to a Washington Nationals batter during the first inning of their MLB National League baseball game in St. Louis

    Sad jams:  this could be the last time we have multiple baseball games on one day this year. What’s on tap: Giants vs. Cardinals, 4PM Eastern: Fox:  The series is tied 1-1, but in some ways it feels like the Cardinals are behind. Probably because their starting pitching is in need of some stability. Indeed,…

  16. Ryan Vogelsong holds Cardinals in check as Giants draw even in NLCS

    Ryan Vogelsong Getty

    Coming into the postseason, most mentioned Matt Cain and Madison Bumgarner as the reasons to fear the Giants’ starting rotation. And rightfully so. But Ryan Vogelsong has been their most effective starter thus far. After allowing one run over five innings in Game 3 of the NLDS against the Reds last week, Vogelsong limited the…

    San Francisco Giants v Cincinnati Reds - Game Three

    Hunter Pence did more to add to his legend yesterday than most guys do all year. In addition to playing without functioning legs (more or less), he gave the Giants the Knute Rockne treatment before the game. Via Andrew Baggarly at, here’s the speech he gave his teammates: “Get in here, everyone get in…

    Freddy Sanchez hasn’t played a game in the majors since June 10 of last year following shoulder and back surgeries, but he’s still hoping to help the Giants as a pinch-hitter down the stretch. According to Andrew Baggarly of, Sanchez is currently working out at the Giants’ complex in Scottsdale and could begin playing…

    Angel Pagan

    Check this one out: San Francisco’s Angel Pagan covered a whole lot of ground in center to rob Carlos Quentin of a double or triple in a 2-2 game against the Padres on Tuesday. He then got up and made the relay to Brandon Crawford to double up Chase Headley at first base. Here’s the…

    Ryan Theriot is back from the disabled list, as the Giants activated the veteran infielder following a minimum 15-day stay for an elbow injury. To make room on the roster San Francisco optioned Charlie Culberson to Triple-A after the rookie went 3-for-22 (.136) in his first taste of the big leagues. Prior to injuring his…

  21. Freddy Sanchez is playing third base on rehab assignment

    Pablo Sandoval being out 4-6 weeks with a fractured hamate bone has the Giants thinking about creative ways to replace him, which is why second baseman Freddy Sanchez played third base yesterday on his minor-league rehab assignment. Sanchez has suffered numerous setbacks trying to recover from shoulder problems, so counting on him returning as a…

  22. Looking at MLB’s least productive positions to date

    Xavier Nady

    Nationals left fielders, “led” by Xavier Nady, have amassed an MLB-low .406 OPS in 101 at-bats to date, hitting just .119 with no homers and six RBI. Here’s the list of the worst OPSs by team and position so far, along with the player most responsible for the poor showing. LF Nationals – .406 (.119/.237/.168)…

    Freddy Sanchez has had so many false starts and setbacks with his surgically repaired shoulder that recovery timetables seem sort of silly at this point, but the Giants have a new one anyway. Sanchez’s minor-league rehab assignment begins today and manager Bruce Bochy told Andrew Baggarly of that the Giants have mapped out an…

    Mets Giants Getty

    The Mets beat the Giants 5-4 this afternoon, but whether anyone actually deserved to win, well, that’s up for debate. The Mets certainly appeared to be in control entering the top of the ninth, as Frank Francisco was handed a 4-1 lead after Mike Pelfrey tossed eight innings of one-run ball. However, Francisco was pulled…

    Apr 13, 2012, 5:42 PM EDT


    Jim Bowden reports that the Phillies are going to sign Mike Fontenot to a minor league deal. Fontenot hit .227/.304/.377  for the Giants last year and remained with the team this spring because there is a little known law requiring him to be within three miles of Ryan Theriot at all times.  With this move, the…
