Notes

Roster moves: In case you missed it, the Giants made a rare early-season Major League trade on Tuesday, and sent left-handed reliever Wandy Peralta (and a PTBNL) to the New York Yankees in exchange for outfielder Mike Tauchman. But with Tauchman unable to join the team immediately, due to the limitations in instantaneous cross-country travel, the Giants have activated outfielder Skye Bolt.

Posey third: Buster Posey bats third! Like old times!


Enjoy the baseball, friends.
