by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

So in came Casilla, who promptly tossed gasoline on the fire by allowing a run-scoring single to David Freese.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Giants' Santiago Casilla avoids injury during BP session


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/26/2015) Giants reliever Santiago Casilla avoided a major injury on Thursday after he was hit by a comebacker during a batting practice session, according to MLB.com.

Casilla took a line drive off the shin during the session. He laid on the ground for about a minute, but was able to walk off the field under his own power. X-rays came back negative, so Casilla is not dealing with a fracture. He may miss a day or two due to the injury, but that's it. Casilla said he wanted to simulate a real game, which is why he decided not to pitch behind a screen.

The 34-year-old posted a 1.70 ERA over 58 1/3 innings last year. He's expected to open the season as the team's closer.
