DateQuestionAnswer
2015-04-16 17:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on Giants rotation and when/if we might see Yusmeiro Petit?
(wml2000 from NYC)
After Madison Bumgarner it looks really thin, though Jake Peavy and Tim Hudson could certainly surprise us. Chris Heston has shown some velocity improvement and could be better than we were expecting, but I still see him as a back end guy. Tim Lincecum's velo is really down and while the deception is better, I don't trust him much. Who knows when Matt Cain's coming back? I'd love to see Petit in the rotation, but it could be a while if Heston holds up. I'll guess June. (Mike Gianella)
2013-04-18 14:00:00 (link to chat)How many starts will the Giants need to get from pitchers other than Zito, Lincecum, Cain, Vogelsong and Bumgarner? Who will get those starts?
(Matt from San Mateo)
Rotation health has certainly been a major asset to the Giants in recent years, Matt, but the luck has to run out eventually, and with Lincecum struggling, it might not even take an injury. After only needing two last year, I'll say 12 this year, all of which will be picked up internally. My guess is that Chris Heston will get the first look, with Mike Kickham and Yusmeiro Petit in the mix, though all three have been knocked around at Triple-A Fresno. (Daniel Rathman)
