As the San Francisco Giants' get closer to opening day their roster begins to get smaller and smaller, having a number of younger players pack up their stuff and get back to their minor league teams while the big boys get down to work.
RHP Seth Rosin, RHP Shawn Sanford, C Andrew Susac and IF Joe Panik were reassigned to minor league camp Monday evening, while IF Ehire Adrianza was optioned to Triple-A. OF Francisco Peguero was also optioned to Triple-A while C Tommy Joseph was reassigned to minor league camp. Joseph had two home runs on Saturday.
What that leaves is a few players still making a push for the 25-man roster, including Brett Pill, who isn't making the first base positional battle any either with Aubrey Huff and Brandon Belt as well. He went 2-4 on Monday boosting his average to .321 in 28 at bats. THose numbers are very comparable to Huff and Belt's , and Pill's versatility in the field may make him one of the last to leave camp or last to be put on the 25-man roster.
