4/25/2015 | Giants impressed with Heston's composure after outing

The Giants learned a lot about rookie Chris Heston when he was called up to fill Matt Cain's spot in the rotation and he responded with three starts of six innings or more while allowing one earned run or less.

4/24/2015 | Trio of Giants stars make progress in rehab

The only drawback with being as great as Clayton Kershaw and Madison Bumgarner is found in the implausibly high standards they set for themselves. Living up to that greatness is an ongoing challenge.
