Diamondbacks vs Giants Pregame — May 13, 2023

PHOENIX, May 14 — It is Game Four of a four-game set between the host Arizona Diamondbacks and the visiting San Francisco Giants. It is the tenth game of a ten-game homestand for the Diamondbacks. For the Giants, this is the only stop on their road trip. Right-hander Brandon Pfaadt (0–1, 12.10 ERA) will start for the Diamondbacks against Giants righty Logan Webb (3–5, 3.46 ERA). Prior to the game, Giants manager Gabe Kapler met with the media on hand. Here are the highlights.

Shortstop Brandon Crawford has returned from injury for Sunday’s game. The team is going to manage his workload, easing him back into the lineup in an effort to prevent a reinjury.

Outfielder Mike Yastrzemski ran the bases during warmups and is close to returning from his left hamstring strain. Kapler said he will be back for the series in San Francisco against the Philadelphia Phillies, which is from Monday to Wednesday, May 15 to 17.

Outfielder Joc Pederson is feeling better in regards to his inflamed right wrist. Kapler said it’s a “day-to-day” situation with Pederson. He might be available off the bench Sunday but most likely will not return until they get back to San Francisco.

Kapler does not feel that Pfaadt’s performance thus far in the majors is indicative of his talent. Kapler added “He’s got really good stuff,” “So we have to be prepared. He’s gonna come out with a really good fastball.”
