Giants pitcher Derek Holland has criticized San Francisco’s front office and says he faked an injury that led to a recent stint on the injured list.
The Giants announced after Saturday’s game that Holland would be moved to the bullpen, which prompted an annoyed Holland to take a few shots at the organization and tell reporters he faked an injury this season.
“To be honest, I have no idea what they’re doing,” he said, per Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle. “I don’t mean [manager Bruce Bochy] … It’s more from the front office. We keep changing a lot of things. I did a fake injury so I’m not happy about that. But at the end of the day I’m going to do what they ask me to do. I’m going to be here for my teammates. That’s what it’s all about.”

Holland was referencing a 10-day stint on the injured list with a bone bruise on his left index finger.
Farhan Zaidi, the team’s president of baseball operations, told the San Francisco Chronicle later Saturday that the injury was legitimate.
Something stinks in San Fran.
