by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/18/2015) Giants relief pitcher Santiago Casilla worked a scoreless one-hit ninth inning in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Diamondbacks. 

Casilla allowed a single to Mark Trumbo and then hit Tuffy Gosewich with a pitch before forcing Chris Owings into a game-ending double play. Casilla lowered his ERA to 3.60.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2015) Giants closer Santiago Casilla allowed a solo home run in a nonsave situation Thursday in his team's 7-6 loss in extra innings to the Diamondbacks.

Casilla was brought in with two outs in the 10th inning and his team tied but served up a home run to left field to A.J. Pollock, the first batter he faced. He was able to retire Paul Goldschmidt on a flyout to end the inning. Casilla then stayed in to pitch the 11th after the Giants were able to tie the game for a second straight inning, finishing his day with one earned run on three hits and one walk in one inning of work and leaving the bases loaded with two outs in the 11th.

Casilla owns a 3.86 ERA and 4:2 K:BB ratio in 4 2/3 innings to go along with three saves.

Casilla has earned the save in each of the team's three wins, giving up just one hit in three scoreless innings while striking out three and walking none. He's pitched both Wednesday and Thursday, so it's possible the Giants turn to another reliever if a save option presents itself Friday.

Bruce Bochy: Giants may slide Sergio Romo in the ninth periodically


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.

Casilla opened the ninth with a flyout and strikeout but lost a battle to Bryce Harper when he issued a walk on a full count to extend the game. The free pass didn't hurt him, as he induced a groundball from the next batter to seal the series. Casilla has delivered three scoreless innings during the postseason.
