Logan Webb has earned another start.
The 22-year-old will stay in the rotation after his five-inning, one-earned-run performance Saturday in Arizona. Bruce Bochy told reporters before Sunday’s series finale at Chase Field that he didn’t know when Webb’s next turn would come. But assuming the Giants will go with normal rest for the Rocklin product, he’s lined up to pitch next weekend in Oakland.
The announced rotation for the Giants’ trip to Wrigley Field is, from Tuesday-Thursday, Tyler Beede, Dereck Rodriguez and Jeff Samardzija. For now at least, San Francisco is sticking with Beede, who has an 8.49 ERA in his past five starts. Shaun Anderson, who himself was struggling before a blister forced him to the IL, likely will need a rehab start before rejoining the team, Bochy told reporters. Also hanging over the rotation is Johnny Cueto, who’s building up his arm and expected back in September.
Webb, who was suspended 80 games at the start of the season after testing positive for a PED, showed the Giants enough in just five starts above Low-A — and just one start at Triple-A Sacramento — that they called him up for his debut. And now, after striking out seven and allowing five hits and a walk, he’s shown the Giants enough for an encore.
