Giants Pitching Coach Dave Righetti To Miss Series After Suffering Vertigo

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS/AP) – San Francisco Giants pitching coach Dave Righetti is expected to miss their weekend series in Miami after experiencing a case of vertigo that prompted the team’s plane to make an unscheduled landing in Las Vegas so he could receive medical treatment.

The plane was en route to Miami when it was diverted Thursday morning to Las Vegas. Righetti remained there Friday but was expected to be fine, a Giants official said.

The Giants began their series at Miami on Friday night.
