Giants starter Chris Heston goes 6 1/3 for no-decision Friday


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/2/2015) Giants starter Chris Heston allowed one run on five hits in 6 1/3 innings on Friday to take a no-decision against the Angels.

Heston struck out five and walked one in the outing.

Heston's next start is set for Tuesday, May 12, in Houston.

Giants starting pitcher Chris Heston knocked around in loss on Friday


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/25/2015) Giants starting pitcher Chris Heston (2-2) was knocked around for six runs on 11 hits in 5 1/3 innings on Friday to take the loss against the Rockies.

Rockies leadoff hitter Charlie Blackmon hit a second-inning solo homer against Heston.

Heston posted three strong starts to begin the season before Friday's shaky performance.

Heston's next start is set for Wednesday in Los Angeles against the Dodgers.

Giants' Bochy won't move starters up after Peavy sent to DL


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2015) Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Sunday that he will insert either Ryan Vogelsong or Yusmeiro Petit into the rotation against the Dodgers Thursday rather than alter his other starters' schedules after Jake Peavy was placed on the disabled list, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

The Giants have an off-day Monday, and the team's regular rotation will receive extra rest rather than bump up in order to cover for Peavy's absence. That will leave Chris Heston and Tim Hudson to face the Rockies in Colorado Friday and Saturday, respectively.


Giants pitcher Chris Heston allows one run in win Saturday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/18/2015) Giants pitcher Chris Heston allowed one run on five hits in 7 2/3 innings Saturday in San Francisco's 4-1 win over the Diamondbacks.

Heston made just one mistake in the outing, allowing a leadoff home run to David Peralta in the fourth inning. He settled down and sent the remaining hitters down in order. Heston allowed just one hit over his last three innings of work.

"He's a four-pitch guy with command," Giants manager Bruce Bochy, referring to Heston's fastball, sinker, curveball and changeup, said after the game, per MLB.com. "That really works."

Heston, now 2-1, boasts a blistering 0.87 ERA in three starts and will look to keep rolling Friday against the Rockies.


Giants P Chris Heston picks up loss Monday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/13/2015) Despite producing a solid seven innings of work during Monday's game, Giants pitcher Chris Heston received the loss against the Rockies.

"He looked like he was throwing Wiffle balls up there," Giants third baseman Matt Duffy said, per MLB.com. "Everything was moving."

Heston allowed seven hits over the seven innings while striking out five and walking two. He allowed two runs with only one of the runs earned. He is now 1-1 on the season.

Heston said having Buster Posey behind the plate has given him confidence to trust his pitches. 

"Having Buster back there, you trust what [signs] he puts down, and I know if I can make my pitch, it'll turn out for the best," he said.

His next start will likely be Saturday against the Diamondbacks. 


Giants P Chris Heston strikes out five in six innings


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(4/9/2015) Giants pitcher Chris Heston struck out five in a 5-2 win over the Diamondbacks on Thursday.

Heston went six innings, giving up two runs on three hits with five strikeouts and two walks. The win gives him a record of 1-0 on the season.

Heston looks to build on his performance against the Rockies on Monday.


Chris Heston to start for Giants, Matt Cain DL bound


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/7/2015) RHP Chris Heston will start for the Giants on Wednesday, in place of Matt Cain

Cain is sidelined with a forearm injury, and has been placed on the disabled list retroactive to April 3. Heston was recalled from the minors.

Cain said the forearm gives him trouble with certain movements but had no "killing" pain, per the San Francisco Chronicle. He has no timetable for returning to throwing. "But only time will tell," he said.

Heston appeared in three games for the Giants last year, starting one.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Prospect Chris Heston exposed in spring


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/22/2013) Giants pitching prospect Chris Heston has impressed in his minor-league career so far, but he has been exposed in his time with the big-league team in spring training so far.

He allowed a two-run home run to Carlos Gonzalez in the first inning. He struck out just two batters in the game, as his ERA rose to 9.28 on the spring.

Heston posted a 2.24 ERA in 148 2/3 innings in Double-A Richmond last season, and will likely begin the season with Triple-A Fresno.
