3yBarry Zito was noticeably different as he threw from the stretch in his first bullpen session of the spring Sunday. He stood in a partial crouch and bent at the knee with his front leg in an attempt to add more movement.
3yThe Giants, and specifically manager Bruce Bochy, are charged with helping restore Buster Posey to his full strength while learning just how much rope to give him in that restoration, and how much to hold fast.
3yMarc Kroon, the journeyman right-hander whose bid to make it back to the major leagues became an emotional storyline last season, announced his retirement on his Twitter account Sunday.
3yBruce Bochy has forbidden Buster Posey from blocking the plate after losing his star catcher for the season last May. The Giants manager confirmed it on Sunday in Scottsdale.
3yAll eyes were on Buster Posey Sunday in Scottsdale, where he caught Tim Lincecum and Matt Cain in the bullpen area. After his workout, he sat down for a long Q&A with the media, including Giants Insider Andrew Baggarly.
3yRyan Vogelsongs 2012 season isnt off to a dream start. The right-hander wont pick up a baseball for the first 7-10 days of the spring after straining his lower back in the weight room a week ago.
3yBrian Wilson threw 20 pitches Thursday, took a rest to replicate an inning break, then threw 20 more. Bruce Bochy estimated that his closer was throwing with 80 percent effort, mixing in some cutters and sliders.
