The San Francisco Giants purchased the contract of AAA minor-leaguer Ryan Sadowski and will be inserting him into their rotation, in place of a struggling Jonathan Sanchez.
Bochy described Sadowski as a fastball-slider-changeup pitcher who throws about 90 mph. Sadowski attracted interest from a team in Japan this season, but vice president of baseball operations Bobby Evans said the Giants rebuffed the Japanese request to buy his contract.
So much for that idea.
Wonder if the Bay Stars have another pitcher targeted.
