Jan. 20 12:00 PM PT1:00 PM MT2:00 PM CT3:00 PM ET15:00 ET20:00 GMT4:00 1:00 PM MST3:00 PM EST3:30 PM VEN0:00 UAE (+1)2:00 PM CT-Casilla is crossing the bay again, re-joining the Oakland Athletics with a two-year contract Friday after seven seasons with San Francisco. Casilla has spent his entire big league career between the two Bay Area teams; his initial six seasons were with Oakland. Analysis: While the right-hander lost his job as closer last season for the Giants' struggling bullpen, he provides A's manager Bob Melvin with some options of when to use him. Casilla could be called upon to help handle ninth-inning duties along with regular closer Sean Doolittle, while Ryan Dull also could be in the mix. He went 2-5 with a 3.57 ERA and 31 saves last season after posting a 4-2 mark record with a 2.79 ERA and a career-best 38 saves in 2015.

Analysis: Bochy was booed when he went to the mound to bring Casilla into the game, and booed louder when he had to go back and pull him two batters later. Casilla has blown nine saves on the season, with two coming in his last three appearances.

Analysis: Casilla is 0-1 with a 7.88 ERA over his last nine appearances, blowing two of his six save chances over that span.

Analysis: The shaky San Francisco closer had converted his last three opportunities, but he's now surrendered five runs in 6 2/3 innings in seven appearances since Aug. 14. Casilla has only three saves over that stretch, in part because the slumping Giants haven't had many late leads of late.
