San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy used C Hector Sanchez at first base in the Cactus League spring game Wednesday, March 12, and it gives him another option in case 1B Brandon Belt should go down to an injury. "He did an outstanding job," pitcher Tim Lincecum said. Sanchez lost 20 pounds during the offseason, and his versatility and flexibility is pleasing to his skipper.
Fantasy Tip: Sanchez would have slightly more fantasy appeal in NL-only leagues if he gains eligibility at first base, but he still needs a long-term injury to either Brandon Belt or Buster Posey to have any real appeal.
