Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Get your green on…as in grassy infields, outfields, and lush lawn seats! (And if you happen to have one of those sick green Giants lids, rock it!)

The Giants (10-4-2) will split their squads today, with one team traveling to Glendale to take on the Dodgers (8-3) at 7:05 p.m. (PT). Left-hander Brian Burres (1-0, 1.80) goes up against Aaron Harang (1-0, 5.40).

The other squad will host the Oakland A’s (10-3) at Scottsdale Stadium at 1:05 p.m. (PT). Tim Lincecum (1-0, 6.75) will face Tom Milone (1-0, 3.12).

The Giants-A’s game can be seen on Comcast Sports Net Bay Area and MLB Network and heard on KNBR. The Giants-Dodgers contest will be televised on the MLB Network and can be heard via web stream at MLB.com’s online Media Center.

Pre-game notes: Hector Sanchez is batting fifth in the lineup and playing catcher against the Dodgers and Eli Whiteside is playing catcher vs. the A’s. My spidey sense tells me Chris Stewart may have lost his grip on the backup backstop job … Time is running out on Brett Pill. The Giants have him at first base today with Brandon Belt in left in the Dodgers game. I just can’t see both players making the 25-man roster … The pitchers will bat in the evening game.

 

Position battles: Below are the number of innings that each player has logged at his position(s), through the Giants’ first 14 Cactus League games.

 

C — Stewart (33), Whiteside (32), H. Sanchez (24), Posey (10), J. Williams (10), Susac (9), Joseph (6)
1B — Pill (46), Huff (28), Belt (27), Dominguez (17), Oropesa (3), Anders (3)
2B — Burriss (24), Theriot (24), Fontenot (18), Panik (18), Arias (17), Noonan (17)
3B — Gillaspie (49), Sandoval (49), Dominguez (12), Arias (5), Noonan (4), Burriss (4), Theriot (1)
SS — Crawford (37), Arias (26), Theriot (23), Adrianza (15), Burriss (9), Panik (6)
LF — Cabrera (39), Christian (29), Perez (16), Burriss (13), Graham (8), Belt (6), Huff (5), Parker (5), Pill (5)
CF — Pagan (41), Brown (28), Blanco (20), Graham (15), Cabrera (10)
RF — Schierholtz (38), Kieschnick (25), Blanco (20), Belt (17), Graham (11), Perez (10), Parker (3)
