Hello and happy Wednesday.
Sometime last week, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reported that the San Francisco Giants might call up left-handed pitcher Sammy Long sooner rather than later. The same Long who was out of baseball in 2018 and 2020. The same long whom the Giants signed to a Minor League contract for this year. The same Long who, prior to the start of the Minor League season last month, had never even appeared in a single game above A ball.
The Giants made it official on Tuesday, when Gabe Kapler said the team would be calling him up for Wednesday’s finale against the Texas Rangers.
