It was a bit of a quiet day at Scottsdale Stadium Wednesday on the eve of the position players for San Francisco Giants arriving to camp, but CSN Bay Area's Andrew Baggarly was on hand for the inside scoop of what went down today with the Black and Orange.
Tim Lincecum resumed his normal activities after missing a day with some back stiffness on Tuesday. He took part in team stretching and calisthenics work, as well as playing some catch with Barry Zito. His day was a cut a little short as a precaution, but skipper Bruce Bochy fully expects him to take part in his normal bullpen session on Thursday.
Closer Brian Wilson did not throw with his group off the mound today, instead the team decided that he'll throw his bullpen sessions every other day as a precaution with his pesky elbow. He will be on the docket in the 'pen with Timmy tomorrow. "It's all mapped out," Bochy said.
Buster Posey had another rest day from catching, sticking with his every other day schedule with team medical staff right now, but that could pick up depending on how Buster's leg responds. Once again, erring on the side of caution is fine when it comes to #28.
Freddy Sanchez pushed his throwing to 140 feet today, which is a good sign that he's recovering well. He's still to make athletic throws in the infield though.
Aubrey Huff made an appearance a day early, taking some swings in the cage and making his rounds before he get's to work tomorrow.
