Takeaways: Miley holds Cardinals scoreless

JUPITER, Fla. -- Takeaways from the first spring training game Wade Miley ever warmed up for with a two-hour-plus bus ride -- the sacrifice Miley had to make when traded from a team that trains in Arizona (the Diamondbacks) to the Red Sox. * Pablo Sandoval’s comments this weekend to Scott Miller of Bleacher Report that he left San Francisco because he felt "disrespected" and misses only manager Bruce Bochy and outfielder Hunter Pence is a stark departure from what he said after the Giants’ victory parade last fall.

Giants OF Hunter Pence has broken arm

The Friars foes up north by the bay will be down a key man in April. The Giants' All Star outfielder literally got a bad break when he was hit by a pitch today. He will miss 6-8 weeks healing from a non-displaced fracture in his left forearm. The Padres open their first homestand hosting the Giants for 4 games. Pence will certainly miss those games. The Friars' first road trip to San Francisco will be in early May. It is possible Pence could be back for those games, but an eight week recovery would have him returning just before. If he needs additional rehab time due to missing spring...

Read the article anyway. The Giants confirmed that Hunter Pence has a broken right ulna bone and will miss from six to eight weeks. The good news is it's March 5. The bad news is that Pence will still miss at least two or three weeks of the regular season, and that's in the most optimistic of optimistic scenarios. It could have been worse, though. Not only could it have happened on the last day of spring training,...
