Who’s pitching Sunday?
Thursday, July 28
PHILADELPHIA — Some weird stuff is happening with the Giants’ starting rotation.
Sunday’s starter against the Cincinnati Reds is. … To Be Announced. Undetermined. For now, it’s not Barry Zito, whose next turn would have been Sunday.
Zito said after Thursday’s 4-1 victory over Philadelphia that he hasn’t been informed of anything by Giants officials or manager Bruce Bochy. But Zito added that he expects to throw his usual between-starts session off a bullpen mound Friday.
Zito’s 6.75 ERA in four career starts at Cincinnati’s Great American Ball Park, where San Francisco plays this weekend, may have influenced the Giants decision-makers.
Bochy, who rarely hides behind “no comment,” remained mum when approached on the subject of Sunday’s.starter.
