Hello and happy Monday.

On Sunday, the San Francisco Giants made a subtle bullpen move, recalling right-handed pitcher Rico Garcia and optioning left-handed pitcher Andrew Suárez.

Garcia has made 9 appearances this year, and accrued an ERA of 7.50 and an FIP of 5.30. In 6 innings he’s allowed 12 hits and 2 walks while striking out 3.

Suárez, a former second-round pick, has made 5 appearances, and has a 5.14 ERA and 6.00 FIP. In 7 innings he’s given up 9 hits and 5 walks while striking out 4.

Welcome back, Rico.

Did Barry Bonds hit a home run today?


September 7, 2000: Against the San Diego Padres, Bonds hit a 2-run home run in the 3rd inning off of Matt Clement, scoring Marvin Benard. It gave the Giants a 2-0 lead, and they would win 13-0. It was his 44th homer of the year.

September 7, 2004: Against the Colorado Rockies, Bonds hit a 2-run home run in the 3rd inning off of Jamey Wright, scoring Edgardo Alfonzo. It gave the Giants a 3-2 lead, but they would lose 8-7. It was his 40th homer of the year.
