Barry Zito Barry Zito expects to pitch his scheduled outing against the Dodgers on Sunday, he told Giants manager Bruce Bochy.

According to Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News , Zito met with his manager and told him he was shaken up, but otherwise OK following a car accident last night in West Hollywood.

Zito was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for precautionary X-rays and an MRI on his sore neck, and the tests showed no structural damage.

Bochy told KNBR that he still wants Zito to meet with trainers before making a decision about his Sunday start. Bochy said a car hit Zito's car after running a red light. Zito was not cited by police and was listed on the police report as "a party to" the accident, indicating he was not at fault.

Because the Giants have an off day on Monday, Madison Bumgarner could be moved up in the rotation to replace Zito.
