Gee, I wonder if Dexter Fowler is talking to the San Francisco Giants?

Dexter Fowler, who turns 30 in March, hit .250/.346/.411 with 17 home runs, 46 RBI, and 20 stolen bases in 690 regular season plate appearances for the Cubs in 2015. He performed well in the playoffs, hitting two doubles and two homers in 39 trips to the plate.

The San Francisco Giants are in need of an outfielder. Preferably one who can play center field given Angel Pagan‘s recent ineffectiveness and fragility.

Hmm . . . if only those two parties could get together and talk things out . . .

I wonder how he was able to get center court, courtside tickets to the best team in basketball last night. How fortunate that his financial advisor got a ticket next to him. I wonder what they talked about last night and what they have planed in the Bay Area today?

LOS ANGELES — Jeff Samardjiza has been placed on the 10-day injured list by the San Francisco Giants due to right shoulder impingement.

Manager Gabe Kapler said before Saturday’s game against the Los Angeles Dodgers that the right-hander told trainers and the coaching staff that he felt like wasn’t able to get the arm loose during Friday’s game. Samardjiza is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Saturday.

Samardjiza went four-plus innings and allowed six runs on seven hits in a 7-2 loss to the Dodgers. He is 0-2 with a 9.88 ERA in three starts.

The Giants have recalled left-hander Andrew Suarez from their alternate training site, but Kapler said he hasn’t finalized a revised starting rotation.
