Gearrin (finger) gave up one run on two hits in his lone inning of work on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Gearrin made his first appearance in 12 days, as the 30-year-old was dealing with a broken fingernail on his throwing hand. He posted a 4.28 ERA in 48.1 innings with the Giants last season, but his spot in the bullpen isn't guaranteed heading into the 2017 season. Gearrin still has time to prove himself this spring, but he'll need to improve upon his 9.00 ERA and 2.00 WHIP if he's looking to return San Francisco's bullpen.

Gearrin threw for the first time Friday after missing a week due to a broken fingernail, Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gearrin's condition is improving, but it remains unclear when he will be able to return to Cactus League action. After posting a 4.28 ERA in 48.1 innings last season, Gearrin's spot in the San Francisco bullpen shouldn't be considered guaranteed. We'll monitor his status as spring continues.

Gearrin made his third Cactus League appearance Thursday, giving up two runs on two hits in his lone inning of work.

EDGE Analysis

Gearrin hasn't gotten off to a great start this spring, giving up three runs over three innings. Despite the slow start, there isn't much competition for his bullpen spot and he should make the Opening Day roster. The veteran righty nailed down a few saves last season when the Giants' bullpen was in flux, but the addition of Mark Melancon will keep Gearrin in middle relief for the majority of the season.

Gearrin agreed to a one-year, $1.05 million contract with the Giants on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

The right-hander battled shoulder issues in July and August but returned to San Francisco and finished strong, posting a 1.35 ERA and 13:1 K:BB in September. He racked up 16 holds and three saves in 56 total appearances. Health permitting, the sinkerballer should once again play a prominent role near the back end of the bullpen for the Giants in 2017.

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.
