LOS ANGELES -- The Giants were prepared to activate Gregor Blanco on Friday evening, marking the first in what could be a flurry of roster moves.
SAN FRANCISCO -- Who returns first: Gregor Blanco or Hunter Pence? At the moment, you would want to bet on the fourth outfielder, not the starting right fielder.
SAN FRANCISCO -- Bruce Bochy went up to Brandon Crawford on Saturday night and asked if his former No. 8 hitter wanted to bat third or fourth on Sunday.
NEW YORK -- Chris Heston is in the rotation because a flexor strain put Matt Cain on the disabled list before he could make his first start of the season.
