Brian Wilson held back, Andres Torres and Aaron Rowand taking hacks, Pablo Sandoval looking good, Scott Reiss and Mychael Urban bring you the Giants scoop from Arizona.
Scoop here is all about Brian Wilson who you may recall left practice early on Wednesday after he tweaked his back. Well Willie did not work out on Thursday Bruce -- decided to hold him back one more day. But the good news is there is no MRI scheduled and the injury appears to be minor. Earlier order -- -- it and we just felt were.

But nonetheless disappointing yeah surprisingly -- Happening this early normally gets at least a couple of weeks but it it was kind of underscores in my opinion. -- the self inflicted wounds that the -- have. Had a over the past few years look I understand. They're getting guys who have. Long injury histories. Hope he makes him a little bit more available little bit more their warehouse financially but there's that risk guys who have been hurt. They often get hurt again and that's been the case time and time again with a return and meanwhile Brian Wilson's that kept him off the field on Thursday it doesn't seem to be an issue going forward he said minor back problems in the past -- he has he's never had to be LSU with a back. They're not sending him for an MR I think that's the most significant news.

Yards to the end they'll lose in a book how to really outcome aside -- one offseason you know being working out. Stop this stuff are -- -- before a loss through great. I asked Pablo exactly what he's weighing in at these days and he gave me the Dikembe finger and said tomorrow tomorrow so I guess we'll have to wait another day one more note from Bruce -- she's news conference he identified Ramon Ramirez as a player who is impressed. As much as anybody this first week of camp saying the relief pitcher already looks. Game ready.
