Hello and happy Thursday.

I come bearing good news, which you could surely use after the San Francisco Giants got utterly destroyed by the Los Angeles Dodgers Wednesday night. Brandon Crawford is ready to return.

Before Wednesday’s game, it was reported that Crawford was likely to be activated for Thursday’s series finale matinee.

Thairo Estrada has done an admirable job filling in for Crawford while he was out, but it sure will be great to have the All-Star shortstop back.

His namesake, Brandon Belt, is also nearing a return, and will start a rehab assignment on Thursday.
