Today's updates – UPDATED
Lots of news at the park today. Here’s the rundown, and as always, I’ll have many more details when my notebook goes up.
1. Jason Schmidt will NOT start for the Giants, after all. Brad Hennessey will take his place.
2. Anthony Reyes threw a bullpen today and is scheduled to start Monday against the Brewers at Miller Park, with Marquis going Tuesday.
3. Izzy threw an extensive bullpen this afternoon and said it was mostly good, but his hip still gives way on pitches sometimes. His decision should be made in the next day or two, after he consults with Jocketty, TLR, Duncan, etc. He said he’s not really any more optimistic than he was before throwing.
4. Eckstein continues to work out and get closer, but he’s not listed on the lineup card
and from what I can tell, has not been activated from the DL. He’ll likely play in Milwaukee. Correction — shortly before the game, it was announced that Eckstein is off the DL. He could pinch-hit.
5. Danny Sheaffer will not be back as the manager at Memphis.
