Knee injury sidelines reliever Romo
SAN FRANCISCO -- Giants manager Bruce Bochy said prior to Wednesday's game that Sergio Romo has been unavailable the last two games with a subluxed patella in his right knee, and that the reliever remains day to day.
"He's available to pitch today, but ideally we'd like to get him off today, and tomorrow's a day off," Bochy said. "We think he'll be ready on Friday."
Romo injured his patella while stretching prior to Monday's game, and an MRI confirmed the partial dislocation.
"He's walking around and he's in the dugout," Bochy said. "We just don't want to put him on the mound."
Bochy said everyone else was available to pitch out of the bullpen, even closer Santiago Casilla, who had saved each of the Giants' last three games.
"I'll tell you I'd like to stay away from Casilla, but he's going to tell me he's fine," Bochy said. "It'd be nice to give him a couple days [off]; he's gone three in a row."
Movie on former Giant Torres gets screening
SAN FRANCISCO -- The documentary film chronicling the life of former Giants outfielder Andres Torres is near completion."Gigante," which tells the tale of Torres' struggles with ADHD, will be presented in a test screening Thursday night at the New York University School of Medicine. Will Chang, one of the principal partners in the Giants' ownership group, is one of the film's executive producers. Chusy Jardine, who's writing, producing and directing the film, said in an email interview that this event will help shape the final product.
"Depending on the audience response and feedback, we will go back to the editing room to address communication issues and so on," Jardine said.Jardine said that he and others reconsidered the film's title after the offseason trade that sent Torres and right-hander Ramon Ramirez to the New York Mets.
"It also added a chapter of possible change for Andres as he takes more assertive steps to deal with his disorder as he suits up with his new team," Jardine said.
