Giants Injury Update: Santiago Casilla activated

By on 6/17/2014 05:30:00 PM

Santiago Casilla of the San Francisco Giants has been activated, the team has announced. Casilla was on the 15-day disabled list with a strained hamstring he suffered while trying to beat out a ground ball in Colorado on May 21, as I reported. George Kontos was demoted to Triple-A to make room for Casilla.

Casilla has thrown a plethora of bullpens and has looked sharp in them, so he has been activated as the Giants travel to Chicago for a two-game series against the White Sox.

Casilla, 33, has been an important part of the Giants bullpen since 2010 having an earned run average under 2.00. This season, Casilla has pitched 26.1 innings and has a 1.37 earned run average. He has walked 9 and struck out 17 while having a 1.03 WHIP.

In 2013, Casilla had a 2.16 earned run average in 50 innings pitched. He had a 1.28 WHIP and had 23 holds.

The Giants sit at 43-27, the best record in baseball, and will face the White Sox Tuesday where Matt Cain (1-4, 3.84 ERA) and John Danks (5-5, 4.17 ERA) will square off.
