INSIDE CHINA BASIN: Ray Woodson On Giants Hot Streak & Jeff Samardzija’s Spot In The Rotation

Welcome to the INSIDE CHINA BASIN Baseball Podcast

Updated twice a week on TheSportsVirus.com!

The Giants hot streak has everyone optimistic about contending the entire season in the NL West. Joe and Ray discuss why it’s going well right now for SF and look ahead to the road trip that begins Friday in Washington. RHP Jeff Samardzija is on the mend  (shoulder-expected to throw a bullpen session on Friday) and we both agree that when he returns he will need to step it up to remain in the rotation with young pitchers like Andrew Suarez and Dereck Rodriguez on the rise.

INSIDE CHINA BASIN: Gearrin Talks About Trip, Groeschner On Injuries, Amy G On Clubhouse Vibe

Welcome to the INSIDE CHINA BASIN Baseball Podcast

Updated twice a week on TheSportsVirus.com!

Monday at AT&T Park in San Francisco we chatted with Giants reliever Cory Gearrin about the recent 10-game road trip. We also hear from Giants manager Bruce Bochy, trainer Dave Groeschner and NBC Sports Bay Area reporter Amy Gutierrez.

Giants trainer Dave Groeschner talked about Madison Bumgarner’s rehab: “He’s made great progress the last 10 days or so, throwing just about every day and got off the mound today. …He did a great job keeping his arm strong and the rest of his body strong, his lower body, his core…He did a lot of shoulder exercises, we did a lot of different things, cuff weights on his arm, just to do anything we could to keep his strength in there…Everyone sees Bum’s competitiveness on the field and that’s pretty much what he  does with his rehab. He works really hard. He gets after it just like he does in the game and that helps us. We get a guy that’s that motivated, I really feel like that helps you come back bigger, stronger and quicker and he’s been working his butt off.”

Listen To Gearrin, Groeschner and Amy G

Join us again later this week when our regular guest Ray Woodson joins us to talk about the current homestand trip.
