On the Giants podcast with Marko:
#1 Marko, San Francisco Giants outfielder Joc Pederson will sit out Monday’s home run derby while nursing some aches and pains he said you can’t move too much for 24-38 hours it hurts too much.
#2 Pederson should be ready to get into Tuesday night’s All Star game in Los Angeles after getting some rest and he looks ready to get some batting practice in and meeting his National League teammates.
#3 Pederson this season is hitting .253, with 35 runs, 17 home runs, and 41 RBIs as of Thursday night which earned him a pick on the All Star team.
#4 Luis Gonzalez the former Arizona Diamondbacks player now a D-Backs broadcaster met with his namesake on Wednesday Giants outfielder Luis Gonzalez. They both shared Gonzo nicknames, talked about the D-Backs Gonzalez’ 2001 World Series home run that beat the New York Yankees and the Giants Gonzalez’s position player pitching debut this season as they posed for pictures in front of the Giants dugout. Good times.
