Greisinger faced 20 batters and gave up 9 hits (5 of which came off Yoshiyuki Kamei's bat over 6 plate appearances).  Assuming no sudden bumps in the road, Greisinger's first Ichi-gun start could come as early as 8/1 (vs Hiroshima).

Seth Greisinger pitched in a simulated game at Giants Stadium on Sunday.  He threw a total 75 pitches (he was able to mix in all his pitches) and faced Yoshinobu Takahashi, Yoshitomo Tani, and Yoshiyuki Kamei.  Greisinger told reporters that out of a max of 100, he was probably at about 90.

The Giants are hopeful Greisinger is close to being ready to rejoin the active roster.
