News: Affeldt failed to record a single out in Friday's win over the Rockies, as he was torched for four runs on five hits.
Impact: Fortunately for Affeldt, the Giants held an 11-4 lead when he entered the game, so his disastrous showing didn't end up dooming his team. Nonetheless, his ERA doubled as a result of the poor outing, jumping from 3.00 to 6.00. Affeldt has been one of the Giants' most trusted setup men for the last several seasons, but with his average fastball velocity down nearly two miles per hour from 2014, the 35-year-old's numbers may not be primed for much of a recovery.

News: Affeldt will take his three children into account when it comes to making a decision on whether he keeps pitching beyond this season.
Impact: The San Francisco Giants left-hander and 2014 World Series Game 7 winner at Kansas City would like to give it at least another season after 2015, when his $18 million, three-year contract with the reigning champions is set to expire. Affeldt insists he would like to remain a Giant after helping the franchise win three titles in the past five seasons.

News: Affeldt allowed three baserunners Monday in an inning of work against the Rockies but emerged without allowing a run.
Impact: A lefty specialist like Affeldt is subject to greater fluctuation in his ratios. A case in point, Affeldt's outing pushed his WHIP up to 1.88.
