SF Giants Rumors: Tim Lincecum Spring Debut, Hunter Pence Flexes Chest, Brett Pill Show

Posted on February 27th, 2013 by admin in SF Giants Rumors

Brett_Pill_MLB_DebutYesterday the San Francisco Giants sent Tim Lincecum to the mound, and it was the first time he faced live hitters since the World Series. Lincecum allowed three runs, but told manager Bruce Bochy that he was happy with his outing. Bochy was also satisfied, says Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle.

“I think Timmy threw the ball well,” Bochy said. “He had a good rhythm. Pitching out of the stretch, he looked comfortable. He had good stuff today. Obviously, he got out of sync last year. He knows it. He worked hard cleaning it up a little bit.”

Alex Pavlovic of the San Jose Mercury News says before the Giants took a bus to Glendale yesterday, they had BP at Scottsdale Stadium. Outfielder Hunter Pence was swinging out of his shoelaces, and launched one out of the stadium in his final swing.

I think Pence is going to have a much better year for the Giants in 2013. He’s already found his comfort zone, and I’m sure is motivated since it’s also contract year for him.

Andrew Baggarly of CSNBayArea.com gives us some insights on Brett Pill. For those of you that haven’t heard; Pill hit two homers yesterday against the Dodgers. Pill knows if he makes the team it’s going to be a bench role. Last season, Pill was 2 for 15 with a homer and three walks as a pinch hitter.

“Being a threat off the bench with the bat is the main priority,” said Pill. “I tried to do too much last year. So to have at-bats off the bench is my goal this spring.”

Pill still has an option left, so the Giants can still send him to Fresno without the risk of losing him to another team.

  1. LETS WATCH BRETT PILL MAKE A NAME FOR HIMSELF OFF THE BENCH THIS YEAR !!! GO BRETT !!!

  2. With his power would any one start him in left for 2 @ bats and then bring in the other guys for the next 2 @ bats and late innings ?

    just asking………

  3. Pill is a BEAST! Give him AB’s!

  4. I would like to see Pill get some AB’s in LF. I think he could do a decent job on defense then replace him in the late innings.
