Giants’ Cueto in jeopardy of missing World Baseball Classic

Johnny Cueto's participation in the World Baseball Classic is in jeopardy, at least for the first round, because of his extended absence from spring training, and a decision could come in the next day or two. Cueto also has been in touch with Moises Alou, the general manager of the Dominican WBC club, according to Moises father, Giants special assistant Felipe Alou. The Giants' main concern is Cueto's readiness to pitch in the season-opening series against the Diamondbacks. Pitchers need to be prepared to throw 65 pitches in a game, the limit for the first round under tournament rules.

Giants spring training Day 7: Rule change should help Bochy

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. On one of the many nights last season when his bullpen imploded, Bruce Bochy nearly put a catcher on the mound. Trevor Brown ended up playing an inning of third base on June 28 as the Giants gave up eight runs over the final two innings in a brutal loss to the As, and he said this week that he was told he was the next man up on the mound.

Giants’ Bochy says rule change could impact bullpen usage

Giants’ Bochy says rule change could impact bullpen usage Manager Bruce Bochy and his coaches met with league officials Saturday to discuss rules changes for 2017, one of which could profoundly affect how clubs manage their rosters. The league and players association agreed to shrink the disabled list from 15 days to 10, with teams able to backdate DL trips for up to three days. Teams could be more apt to place the injured pitchers on the DL, which could lead to less strain on the healthy ones. Sunday's rainout prevented pitchers from throwing their first scheduled live batting...

Tomlinson still a fit as Giants put bench together

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. The options game can be a cruel one. It can also be one of the most important parts of spring training.If two players are relatively even at the end of camp but only one can be optioned to the minors, hes usually the man left out. Giants officials have already made reference to this several times in discussing left field, where Jarrett Parker who is out of options would surely be claimed off waivers if the Giants try to sneak him back to the minors before opening day. Mac Williamson, on the other hand, can be shuttled back and forth.

Ruggiano had the labrum and rotator cuff repaired in his non-throwing shoulder, but said he is fully ready to vie to become...

Giants spring training Day 6: Bochy looks for improvement on bases

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. The Giants alwaysput together a long list of potential minor league free agents as the offseason approaches and they tend to go hard after two or three players from that group.
