Hello and happy Thursday.

The San Francisco Giants updated the injury status of three players on Wednesday: catcher Aramis Garcia, and right-handed pitchers Jeff Samardzija and Reyes Moronta.

Samardzija is perhaps the most important, as he’s set to throw five Alternate Training Site innings on Thursday and should be about ready to return, if the Giants want to make room for him.

But most exciting is Moronta, who pitched one inning at Sacramento on Wednesday.

The Giants haven’t ruled out a Moronta return this season. That sure would be special. The powerful pitcher was magical at times last year before suffering a severe injury that has now cost him more than a year.

Whenever he gets back on the mound, I’ll certainly be watching. And not just because it’s my job.


Did Barry Bonds hit a home run today?

Yes.

September 17, 1996: Against the San Diego Padres, Bonds hit a 2-run home run in the 8th inning off of Dario Veras, scoring Bill Mueller. It gave the Giants a 9-7 lead, which was the final score. It was his 41st homer of the year.

September 17, 1997: Against the Los Angeles Dodgers, Bonds hit a 2-run home run in the 1st inning off of Chan Ho Park, scoring Darryl Hamilton. It gave the Giants a 2-0 lead, and they would win 2-1 (beat LA). It was his 34th homer of the year.

September 17, 2004: Against the San Diego Padres, Bonds hit a solo home run in the 3rd inning off of Jake Peavy. It gave the Giants a 4-0 lead, and they would win 4-1. It was his 42nd homer of the year.
