    Where is Tommy La Stella? Not with SF Giants

    La Stella, 33, who has spent most of the season on the injured list, was told by the Giants he could go home early, manager Gabe Kapler said Sunday before the club’s finale at Oracle Park. His locker, in the far corner of the clubhouse, was cleaned out and replaced by Jason Vosler. Despite a clear signal on the surface, Kapler said La Stella still factors in to the Giants’ plans in 2023.

    Giants vs. D-Backs Gamethread

    Well, it’s time for the San Francisco Giants to play their final home game of the 2022 season. And it’s also a chance for the Giants to win the series against the Arizona Diamondbacks, which would mark their fourth consecutive series victory. The Giants are going for yet another bullpen game, with lefty Scott Alexander taking the mound for the second straight game (he gave up no hits or walks in 1.1 innings to start Saturday).

    Webb to the IL, Junis optioned

    The Giants are doing it to protect him going forward — obviously — and I’m not complaining nor advocating you get ornery about it, either, just pointing out that after a helluva season, the double punch of IL and no playoffs is a bummer. Also a bummer but just as understandable: Jakob Junis’s thrashing as the bulk guy yesterday led to him being optioned down to Triple-A, where he won’t have to report because the minor league season has wrapped up.
