Tuesday’s Pre-Game: Buster Posey and Angel Pagan Out, Grand Slam Sanchez In

As news just popped up that Miguel Olivo bit off a chunk of Alex Guerrero‘s ear, Giants fans are concerning themselves more with the back of Buster Posey and the left shoulder of Angel Pagan. Both of these players will be out tonight in Denver as the Giants begin their three-game road trip against the second-place Colorado Rockies. Here are the lineups you have been seeking:

 This will be Michael Cuddyer‘s first game back for the Rockies since April 17th. He’s only 35 but I feel like he’s so much older. 

As for news specific to the pre-game situation, the beat writers Alex Pavlovic and John Shea have you covered. On Posey’s back:

 It’s true. Their bench is an injured Buster Posey, an injured Angel Pagan, Ehire Adrianza, and Joaquin Arias. The benefits of a thirteen-man pitching staff are rearing their ugly faces yet again! As for Tim Hudson, seems that the news out of Giants HQ are positive:

Arbitrary endpoints: Rockies starter Franklin Morales has seen at least four earned runs attached to his record each of his last four starts, including four home runs. Madison Bumgarner‘s only consistency is his inconsistency, being the ace in a few starts, and then missing the mark in the majority of his starts. He definitely hasn’t been the ace Giants fans envisioned when the season began. My cat is being incredibly distracting, and I have run out of time, so this is what you’re getting for the pre-game. It isn’t purrfect, but it’ll get you by.

First pitch is scheduled for 5:40 PM PST.
