Variety spices Giants’ bullpen

Should the Atlanta Braves summon their closer to pitch today at AT&T Park, you’ll see a stocky right-hander whose average fastball of 96.1 mph ranks as the ninth-fastest in the majors this year. Should the Giants summon theirs, he’ll be a compact right-hander with a side-slinging motion who averages a fastball about 8 mph slower and throws his knee-buckling slider nearly 50 percent of the time.
