San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Tuesday, Feb. 18, that 2B Marco Scutaro will rest periodically, and that INF Joaquin Arias likely will receive most of the activity at second base when Scutaro sits. During spring training, 2B Tony Abreu and SS Ehire Adrianza are also likely to see time at second base while they compete for a utility role.

San Francisco Giants 2B Marco Scutaro (fingers), 38, will be eased into activities this spring and probably won't be in the lineup when spring training games start. Manager Bruce Bochy will also try to give Scutaro more days off than last season during the regular season. SS Joaquin Arias stands to see more playing time at the keystone as a result. The swelling in Scutaro's ring finger went down over the winter and his pinkie is straighter. He's now able to hold the bat normal again.

San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy is sticking with 3B Pablo Sandoval over INF Joaquin Arias, who had four hits Tuesday, Aug. 13. "You know, we've got to get Pablo going," Bochy said of Sandoval, who has one home run since May 22 and a .209 average in 43 games since returning from the DL in late June. Sandoval's last extra-base hit was on July 28.
Fantasy Tip: Sandoval gets himself in trouble when he chases bad pitches, and that's probably partially to blame for his current cold streak. The Giants could choose to rest him some more if he doesn't bounce out of the funk soon. Maybe you should do the same.
