Giants pitchers' return won't cause issue after all

Somewhat remarkably, the composition of the Giants' five-man starting rotation, which recently loomed as a compelling issue, solved itself. The Giants' chief decision-makers, including manager Bruce Bochy and baseball operations czar Brian Sabean, had wondered how the rotation would absorb Matt Cain and Jake Peavy when they were prepared to leave the disabled list. That's no longer an issue, though the solution's likely to be temporary.

June 30, 2015 at 8:53 PM ET

Cain, Peavy officially scheduled for MLB starts

The crucial trial period for Matt Cain and Jake Peavy, which has been in the conceptual stages for months, finally became imminent Tuesday when Giants manager Bruce Bochy announced the veteran right-handers will make their comeback starts Thursday and Friday, respectively.
