DENVER -- The Giants would have preferred to announce Hunter Strickland's one-day promotion to the Majors themselves. But Strickland had his own ideas. Strickland disseminated news of his good fortune Friday afternoon on Twitter.
The right-hander, who made 17 appearances for the Giants late in the regular season and in the postseason last year, will join the club for Saturday's day-night doubleheader against Colorado. Strickland will be eligible to pitch in either game. He'll return to Triple-A Sacramento on Sunday.
