Bruce Bochy was asked about Hector Sanchez’s improvement, and if there was anything he could do during Spring Training to earn a roster spot (or, in other words: change the fate we’re all expecting for Sanchez in April: a trip to Fresno).
“We have a couple guys both are making it very difficult, Whiteside and Stew,” Bochy said. “I doubt that we go with three catchers, but you never know. We haven’t committed one way or the other 100 percent yet.”
One guy who seems like he probably will make the final roster is Gregor Blanco, who went 3-for-3 and stole another base (that’s 6 this spring) against the Royals, the last team Blanco played for in the Majors back in 2010. The Giants have been pretty vocal about their desire to become a faster team. However, Bochy isn’t going to add any speedy guys who can’t hit, and Blanco’s been hitting (singles) like crazy (.545/.615/.591).
