Sunday BP: Silvino Bracho has a strained oblique

The reliever will be out at least a week before pitching at the Alternate Training Site.

Hello and happy Sunday. And happy Passover and Easter to those who celebrate.

On Saturday, the San Francisco Giants announced that right-handed reliever Silvino Bracho — who is not on the active roster or the 40-man roster — had a strained oblique, and would miss 7 to 10 days before returning to the mound.

Bracho, who has five years of MLB experience with the Arizona Diamondbacks (though has pitched just 89.2 innings) had a decent Spring Training with the Giants, giving up just 4 hits and 2 walks (though 4 earned runs) in 7.1 innings, while striking out 12.

He’ll be at the Alternate Training Site in Sacramento when he gets healthy, and it wouldn’t be surprising to see him on the active roster at some point this year.
