Gearrin picked up the save in Friday's extra-inning win over Arizona. He threw a scoreless inning and struck out two.

EDGE Analysis

Gearrin converted one of the most unique save opportunities you will ever see Friday. He started the bottom of the 12th on the mound, but was moved to left field while Javier Lopez came in to face a lefty. Gearrin returned to the mound with two runners on and one out and got the job done, capping off a wild win for the Giants. There are two important things to take away from his outing. First, Gearrin earned the first save since Santiago Casilla had been removed as the team's closer. Second, the fact that manager Bruce Bochy went to such great lengths to keep Gearrin in the game shows the confidence he has in the 30-year-old. The Giants announced they would use a closer by committee, so it isn't guaranteed that Gearrin will continue to see save opportunities, but he obviously has the early lead in claiming the role after Friday's win.

Gearrin surrendered two runs on three hits while retiring just one batter in Tuesday's loss to the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

Gearrin has struggled since returning from the disabled list Aug. 18, surrendering five runs in just 1.2 innings. After posting a 2.16 ERA and 13 holds through his first 36 appearances, Gearrin fell off the map in middle of the summer months before being placed on the disabled list with a shoulder injury. Even if he rights the ship, he likely still won't have value in leagues that count holds due to the strong play of Derek Law, Hunter Strickland and Sergio Romo who have all solidified their roles as late-inning options for the Giants.

Gearrin (shoulder) was activated off the 15-day disabled list Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Gearrin takes the place of right-hander Matt Cain, who was placed on the 15-day disabled list Thursday with a strained lower back. The 30-year-old reliever has made three rehab appearances over the past week, notching three scoreless frames and registering zero free passes. He'll add a righty arm for the Giants out of the bullpen.

Gearrin (shoulder) will make one more rehab appearance at Triple-A Sacramento before returning to the Giants, Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gearrin is healthy enough to return, but the Giants are still trying to figure out how he will fit onto the Giants' 25-man roster. Expect a decision to come shortly, but this appearance will buy San Francisco's management another day or two to think things over.

Gearrin (shoulder) tossed scoreless innings in rehab games Friday and Saturday with Triple-A Sacramento.

EDGE Analysis

Gearrin looks like he's ready to come off the DL and rejoin the Giants, but the team might be challenged to create room for him on the 25-man roster. The right-hander was serviceable, but not spectacular in 37 innings out of the bullpen with the big club earlier this season, contributing a 3.89 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 29 strikeouts.

Gearrin threw a scoreless inning in a rehab outing on Monday for Triple-A Sacramento, Alex Pavlovic of of CSN Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

If his rehab continues to go well without any setbacks, Gearrin is expected to rejoin the Giants at some point later this week. Gearrin won't likely pitch in many high-leverage situations with the recent acquisition of left-hander Will Smith from the Brewers.

Gearrin (shoulder) has joined Triple-A Sacramento and is ready to begin a rehab assignment, Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

A little more than three weeks removed from landing on the DL, Gearrin is ready to return to active competition with the Giants' top minor league affiliate. It's uncertain how long he'll need to prepare for a return to the majors, but the team may want to see Gearrin throw on back-to-back days before activating him.

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.
