Gearrin (shoulder) will throw a bullpen session Tuesday, and if all goes well, he will head out on a rehab assignment, Amy Gutierrez of CSN Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gearrin has been slowly rebuilding strength in his right shoulder over the past several weeks, and now appears on the verge of joining a minor league affiliate. The 30-year-old was pitching well before landing on the disabled list, posting a 3.89 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 14 holds in 41 appearances. It's hard to imagine he'll be in the mix for saves at any point this year, however, with Hunter Strickland and Sergio Romo looming as the top options behind closer Santiago Casilla.

Gearrin (shoulder) threw a bullpen session at the team's spring training complex Tuesday, CSN Bay Area's Alex Pavlovic reports.

EDGE Analysis

It is unclear when he will be able to come off the DL, but for now it sounds like he is progressing in his rehab. Gearrin will offer relief in the middle innings for the Giants once he is healthy.

Gearrin (shoulder) was placed on the disabled list prior to Wednesday's game against the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

Gearrin will hit the DL with a right shoulder sprain after blowing Tuesday's lead against Colorado during two-thirds of an inning of work. The 30-year-old reliever had been pitching well most of the year, but has allowed eight runs over his last five appearances in 3.2 innings of work. Gearrin should be able to return to the club a week after the All-Star Break, but may be sent down to Triple-A if the Giants feel as though his declining production wasn't due to the injury.

Gearrin blew the lead Tuesday, giving up four runs over 0.2 innings against the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

Gearrin was ineffective Tuesday, allowing four of the six batters he faced to reach base. The big blow was dealt by Nolan Arenado when he smashed a hanging slider into left field giving the Rockies the lead and the win. Gearrin has now imploded twice over his past five outings, surrendering two home runs over that span. As a sinker-slider-changeup reliever, he will not be successful if he doesn't keep his pitches down in the strike zone, something he is having trouble with right now. While he carried some value in leagues that count holds, it may be best to look at other options until he rights the ship.

Gearrin picked up his 11th hold of the season after tossing a shutout inning in Wednesday's 7-6 win over Pittsburgh.

EDGE Analysis

Gearrin has returned to his role as the team's setup man with Santiago Casilla back from paternity leave. He notched his second save of the season this past weekend and should be first in line to see save opportunities should Casilla falter or go down to injury.

Gearrin was called on in a save opportunity Saturday because closer Santiago Casilla (paternity leave) was unavailable.

EDGE Analysis

Gearrin converted Saturday's save opportunity, his second of the season, but did give up a homer in the Giants' 6-4 win over the Rays. The right-hander has pitched well of late for San Francisco, having posted 11 straight scoreless appearances before Saturday's outing.

Gearrin has a 2.22 ERA and 0.95 WHIP after pitching 28.1 innings across 30 games this season.

EDGE Analysis

Gearrin's success this season can be greatly attributed to his increased control. His walk rate is currently sitting at 6.5 percent, down from his career average of 9.8. Gearrin is 2-0 this season with 10 holds and has been stellar as of late, throwing 10 straight scoreless innings and allowing just three hits in that time.

Gearrin threw a clean inning against the Diamondbacks on Saturday to earn his first save of the season.

EDGE Analysis

Before the save vultures rush to the waiver wire to grab Gearrin, we must note that the Giants' regular closer, Santiago Casilla, had throw in three consecutive days and was not going to be used Saturday. Gearrin's early success still needs to be monitored, however, as he has put together a 3.06 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and five holds through 17.2 innings. He doesn't strike out as many batters as Hunter Strickland, but he is used in similarly high-pressure situations, making him a solid source of holds.

Gearrin surrendered two runs over his lone inning of work Wednesday, but still managed to record his fourth hold of season.

EDGE Analysis

Gearrin wasn't himself Wednesday, surrendering five fly balls and no grounders after entering the game with a 1.71 GB/FB. Despite the rough outing, he technically held the lead and earned the hold. Gearrin continues to be used in high-pressure situations while Sergio Romo (forearm) and George Kontos (elbow) are on the disabled list.

Gearrin didn't allow a hit while walking one and striking out two in 1.1 innings of work Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

In a game where the Giants' bullpen surrendered four runs, Gearrin was the clear standout. Through 10.1 innings he has posted a 2.61 ERA with two holds. If the rest of San Francisco's middle relievers continue to struggle, then Gearrin should gain manager Bruce Bochy's trust to be used in in the later innings while Sergio Romo (elbow) and George Kontos (elbow) are sidelined.
