San Francisco Giants Spring Training: Freddy Sanchez Gets First Start Against Cubs

The San Francisco Giants’ second baseman Freddy Sanchez will get his first Cactus League start of the season today against the Chicago Cubs at Scottsdale Stadium. Since having off-season shoulder surgery in December Sanchez has been doing rehab and slowly increasing his level of baseball activities, although his shoulder has affected his hitting more than his fielding/throwing. But after taking part in practice at full strength last week (including live BP) Freddy will get the start at second for the G-Men.

This game also involves a mini-duel between the Giants Tim Lincecum and the Cubs Ryan Dempster, both elite pitchers in the National League who are looking to have big seasons for their respective clubs. Let’s see if either of them will go a full three innings, the maximum usually allowed pitchers this time of year.

The lineup for the Giants will be:

F. Sanchez 2B
Tejada SS
Huff 1B
Posey C
Ross RF
Burrell LF
Sandoval 3B
Rowand CF
Lincecum P

First pitch is at 12:05 PT (1:05 MT). You can listen live for FREE thanks to the Giants' G-Cast right here.
