Dan Uggla went 1-for-4 in his first game with Triple-A Fresno.

Whoa! Uggla with a hit? Crazy!. He was a great buy-low for the Giants as the cost is next to nothing. They're not getting much production out of their current second basemen, so this is a low risk/high reward move for them. Stay tuned to see how he fares in Fresno and when we might be able to expect him back in the Show.

Update: Angel Pagan (back) graduated from hitting off a tee to playing soft toss Wednesday.

Pagan is still a ways off and doesn't look like he's coming back until the middle of August at the earliest. Continue to monitor his condition, but don't expect too much upon his eventual return.

Santiago Casilla picked up his seventh save despite giving up one run on two hits against the Phillies on Wednesday.

The run allowed was Santiago's first since May 16, a span of 16 appearances, so while you never want to see your closer give up runs, he gets a pass here for now, especially since he still notched the save. The Giants are still likely to shop for closer help on the trade market as neither Casilla nor former-closer Sergio Romo are really built like closers. Both work great as set-up men and therefore the Giants could still look at some of the better ninth-inning specialists available. Keep your ear to the ground with regard to the rumors as the Giants trading for a closer would certainly kill the value of Casilla as well as the hope of any Romo fans.

Madison Bumgarner tossed eight shutout innings against the Phillies on Wednesday. He allowed five hits, walked none and struck out six.

Bumgarner continued to put his late June/early-July woes behind him with his third straight win and second-straight quality start. But unlike his last outings which last just six innings, this performance was that of an elite hurler as his command was dead-on and the Phillies never stood a chance against him. He threw just 93 pitches (65 strikes) and induced 10 ground ball outs to stifle the Phillies and looks like he's just getting warmed up for the second half. He'll face the Pirates next.

Santiago Casilla will unlikely be available to close on Thursday should a save opportunity present itself after after making an appearance in each of the last three days.

Casilla allowed one run on two hits Wednesday, but was still able to walk away with his seventh save of the season. The righty has three blown saves in 10 chances on the year, but has yet to blow one since taking over for Sergio Romo as the team's closer and Wednesday's run was the first he has allowed since he gave up two all the way back on May 16th. Should a save chance present itself on Thursday Romo or Jeremy Affeldt could get the call if Bruce Bochy does decide to rest Casilla.

Update: Brandon Belt is scheduled to undergo further tests in San Franicsco as he continues to deal with a concussion.

Belt's concussion was a freak accident as he was hit in the face with a throw during batting practice. Initial reports stated the Giants considered skipping the 7-day DL and placing Belt on the 15-day which lead most to believe his concussion was more serious than initially thought. As Belt continues to deal with his concussion his move to the 15-day DL could be coming.

Ryan Vogelsong will not throw his bullpen session Wednesday in case he's needed in an emergency.

The Giants played a 14-inning extravaganza that was highlighted by a Tim Lincecum save. With the bullpen taxed, the Giants will wit to see if Vogelsong can do his session in-game. If he's not needed, he'll probably just start throwing his usual session while the game is going on.

Brandon Belt (concussion) went back to the team hotel because he wasn't feeling well.

Well what was he doing not staying at the hotel in the first place? He's got a concussion, people. That's fine that he wants to be there with his teammates at the game, but let's be realistic people. Bed rest. That's what's needed. You've got a concussion, so you need to rest your brain and your head. If only there was a rocket scientist employed by each team to help these guys with such issues that require such brain power.
