News 
 Jeff Samardzija, who has been out since August eighth with a shoulder injury, will throw five innings at the Giants alternate site on Thursday. The Giants have been noncommittal on what Samardzija's role will be upon his return but it appears as if they are preparing him to start. Perhaps if all goes well on Thursday he will be activated next week.
