Philadelphia Phillies vs San Francisco Giants Match Preview and Free Picks
The San Francisco Giants could have a few fresh faces in the clubhouse Friday, when they open a three-game series against the visiting Philadelphia Phillies. Second baseman Joe Panik, reliever Mark Melancon and outfielder Hunter Pence are expected to be activated from the disabled list prior to the contest against the Phillies, who began their 10-game road trip by splitting a four-game set versus the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Melancon has been sidelined all season with a right elbow flexor strain while Panik (left thumb sprain) and Pence (right thumb sprain) each have missed a month of action for the Giants, who have lost nine of their last 13 games. Hunter Strickland has converted 11 of his 13 save opportunities and is expected to continue to serve as the team’s closer while Melancon starts out in low-leverage situations.
The Phillies closed their first winning month (15-11) since 2012 on Thursday as Aaron Nola tossed seven strong innings in a 2-1 victory over the Dodgers. Slugging left fielder Rhys Hoskins fractured his jaw in Monday’s game but will not need surgery and could return in several weeks.
