Giants' Jimmy Rollins: Left off Opening Day roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Bruce Bochy informed Rollins on Tuesday that he did not make the Opening Day roster, CSN Bay Area's Alex Pavlovic reports.

This news does not come as much of a surprise, as the 38-year-old hit just .125 (5-for-40) in 16 games this spring. Rollins has the option to remain in the organization as a minor league player, but no decision has made at this time.

Giants' Derek Law: Remains option for setup role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Law -- despite having a 6.32 ERA this spring -- is still a candidate to serve as the Giants' setup man.

Manager Bruce Bochy has remained mum on how he plans on setting up his bullpen outside of Mark Melancon serving as the club's closer. Law had a breakout campaign in 2016, posting a 2.13 ERA over 55 innings and finishing the year as a part of closer committee. Both he and Hunter Strickland figure to see the majority of seventh and eighth inning opportunities, but whoever acts as the team's primary setup man will be the better target for accruing holds.

Giants' Hunter Strickland: Still no clarity regarding setup role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strickland retired the only batter he faced Monday, slightly lowering his Cactus League ERA to 4.82 over 9.1 innings.

Manager Bruce Bochy has remained quiet regarding who his primary setup man will be this season. Both Strickland and Derek Law were considered the frontrunners, and Will Smith's (elbow) injury has removed the lefty from the equation. Both relievers are expected to be used in some capacity in the late innings of close games, so the competition only affects those who play in leagues that count holds as a category.

Giants' Denard Span: Heating up as Opening Day nears
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Span reached base three times Monday, going 2-for-4 with a walk, a pair of RBI and a pair of runs scored in a 14-2 win over Cincinnati.

The 33-year-old was mired in the slump through the first couple weeks of spring training, but he has turned it on over the final few weeks of exhibition play, batting .458 (11-for-24) during his current seven-game hitting streak. Outside of a slight uptick in power, Span had a disappointing season in his first year with the Giants, failing to provide the batting average, runs and steals he was known for despite receiving 637 plate appearances. The most-concerning aspect of his decline was his inability to generate stolen bases, attempting 19 and only converting 12. If Span is nothing more than a 10-15 steal outfielder, then there won't be a ton of value for those in standard leagues. That being said, the veteran outfielder is worth a flyer due to his position atop the Giants' lineup and the possibility of a bounce back campaign.

Giants' Brandon Belt: Expected to bat second in order
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Bruce Bochy has signaled in his Cactus League lineups that he plans to use Belt as his No. 2 hitter to begin the season, Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News reports.

While Belt has yet to emerge as the consistent 20-plus-homer threat the Giants probably envisioned early on during his time in the big leagues, he's been an on-base machine throughout his six seasons with the team. After posting a career-best .394 mark in 2016, Belt's presence in the two hole in front of Hunter Pence, Buster Posey and Brandon Crawford would seemingly help his chances of establishing a new career high in runs, though he could sacrifice some RBI opportunities as a result. Manager Bruce Bochy isn't necessarily married to the idea of using Belt as his No. 2 hitter, so if the team struggles to generate offense early in the season, it's possible that Belt could move into the heart of the order.
