PITTSBURGH - Leaning back in a chair at his locker, hand resting on an outstretched leg, Barry Bonds looked relaxed back in the city where he took his first cuts in the majors.

He joked around and said he enjoyed road trips to Pittsburgh.

Finishing his playing days here is another story.

"I don't think I can come back to Pittsburgh. I'm sorry," said Bonds, who was in the lineup Friday night when the Giants played the last-place Pirates. "I've had a good time here in Pittsburgh. I enjoyed it. ... I've had my time here."

BRAVES: Kyle Davies, who's been on the disabled list since May 16 recovering from a torn right groin, threw 40 pitches in two simulated innings before batting practice. "Every time I go out there it gets better and better," he said. "I didn't feel it one time." Davies expects to head to the minors for a two-inning rehab assignment.

BREWERS: Milwaukee placed right-hander Jose Capellan on the 15-day disabled list with a right shoulder strain. Capellan is 2-0 in 40 appearances with a 4.29 ERA and no saves. The move is retroactive to Tuesday.

DODGERS: Nomar Garciaparra, sidelined because of a sprained ligament in his right knee, is expected to return to the lineup on Tuesday against Cincinnati.

GIANTS: San Francisco acquired veteran left-handed reliever Mike Stanton from Washington for minor league right-hander Shairon Martis.

PADRES: San Diego sent pitcher Chan Ho Park home to have further tests on lower digestive tract ailment. The Padres didn't provide anymore information other than to say Park, who was scheduled to start Sunday against Colorado, is day-to-day.
