San Francisco Giants pitcher Mike Leake will start Saturday against the Pittsburgh Pirates after recovering from a hamstring injury, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. Leake was reportedly only running at about 60 percent earlier this week, but a strong outing during his bullpen session Wednesday cleared him to return. He suffered the injury during a routine workout session between starts, a disappointing development after he allowed just two runs in 6.1 innings during his first start since being acquired from the Cincinnati Reds before the trade deadline. “He wasn’t doing anything different, just the normal sprints he does,” Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. “He thought it was a cramp and it didn’t go away." Leake spent the first five years of his career with the Reds and is coming off his third double-digit win season. He is 9-6 with a 3.52 ERA in 143 innings this year.

San Francisco Giants pitcher Mike Leake will not make his scheduled start on Friday due to a strained left hamstring, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. Leake sustained the injury during a routine workout session in between starts and the team is hopeful that he will only miss one start. “He wasn’t doing anything different, just the normal sprints he does,” Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. “He thought it was a cramp and it didn’t go away. … It’s not worth the risk of starting him.” The Giants traded for the 27-year-old before last week's deadline, and he had a strong debut against the Texas Rangers over the weekend, allowing just two runs in 6.1 innings. Leake has thrown seven straight quality starts overall, and he will be expected to contribute down the stretch as the World Series champions attempt to make another postseason run.

Leake (6-5, 4.08) was absolutely masterful as he hurled 102 pitches (68 for strikes), and nursed a 1-0 lead through eight innings. When he is commanding the zone, as he has lately, he can be extremely effective. He'll carry this performance into the break, and try to build on it in the second half.
