​Scutaro ​G​ets day ​O​ff, Bochy ​H​appy ​W​ith ​S​wings of Belt, Kieschnick

The “Marco Scutaro batting leadoff” experiment might have come to a quick end.   Scutaro is 0-for-9 in two games since Bruce Bochy took the San Francisco Giants leadoff production problem into his own hands, inserting the team’s everyday two-hitter into the first spot in the lineup. But after a second straight hitless night, Bochy could ditch the plan as quickly as it began...

Giants end their five-game losing streak with a 9-2 victory over the Phillies

Roger Kieschnick’s debut was highly productive and Brett Pill finally brought the bat he used to mash the Pacific Coast League all season. But the moves that management didn’t make might have been just as inspirational in the Giants’ 9-2 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies. GM Brian Sabean didn...

Down on the Farm: Roger Kieschnick 2013 Preview

Brown, Kieschnick reassigned to minors

The Giants whittled their spring training roster down a couple more spots today when they sent top prospect Gary Brown and Roger Kieschnick to their minor league camps. Both outfielders are on the Giants’ 40-man roster and didn’t have a realistic shot at making the club’s 25-man Opening Day roster anyway. But it was definitely a good experience for them. Especially Brown, who...
