Shark sharp

Jeff Samardzija looked decent against the Dodgers. He was OK in 2017 and too banged up to do much last year

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- After an offseason of rehabbing, Giants right-hander Jeff Samardzija has enjoyed a smooth start to the spring, clearing every hurdle he’s faced while working his way back from the nagging shoulder injury that wrecked his 2018 campaign.
The latest encouraging milestone came Monday, when the 34-year-old veteran threw three scoreless innings in the Giants’ 8-2 loss to the Dodgers at Scottsdale Stadium.
Facing a Dodgers lineup stacked with regulars, Samardzija yielded just one hit while walking two and striking out four in his second Cactus League outing. He consistently hit 94 mph and said he was pleased with the movement of his fastball and cutter.
