It is unlikely that Jonathan Papelbon will be available for Thursday's game against the Brewers as he has pitched in three consecutive games.
With that, either Ken Giles or Jake Diekman will likely fill the role if a save situation arises. We like Giles to get the first opportunity what with the killer strikeout numbers both in the majors and minors.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Colin Kaepernick has worked with Kurt Warner on his throwing mechanics this offseason.
Specifically, the story notes that Kaepernick is working on "engaging his lower half" to allow for better touch. It's hard to believe Kurt Warner would know more about throwing mechanics than Jim Harbaugh or any other quarterback coach Kap has ever worked with. This appears to be more fluff than anything else, though is reports from camp suggest there's been a real change to approach or delivery of throwing a football, it could be something worth remembering on draft day.
