Hello and happy Saturday. I hope it’s a great weekend for you. If you’re looking for baseball to whet your appetite for next week, we’re wrapping up our rewatch series tonight at 6 with a random game: The San Francisco Giants vs. the Philadelphia Phillies, from July 24, 1993.

As for this season, the Giants Summer Camp just grew, with three recently absent names appearing at Summer Camp.

According to MLB’s Maria Guardado (who published the report on the Giants official site), Billy Hamilton, Jarlin Garcia, and Luis Madero have all physically joined the team’s Summer Camp, after being named as part of the initial 60-player pool.

Madero, a non-roster invitee right-handed pitcher, showed up at the start of camp but tested positive for the coronavirus. He has now been cleared.

Hamilton, a non-roster invitee outfielder, and Garcia, a left-handed pitcher on the 40-man roster, had been on the team’s injury list for undisclosed reasons.

Welcome to camp, fellas.
