Giants Spring Training: Lineup Pruning Begins, Brett Pill Still Making Noise

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.

RHP Stephen Harrold, RHP Jake Dunning, RHP Austin Fleet and LHP David Quinowski were all moved before the game as well.

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.
