Cueto, who is still in the Dominican Republic taking care of his ailing father, may not be ready to participate in the World Baseball Classic, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Although there is no doubt Cueto will be ready to start the season, his late start to spring training may hold him back from playing in the World Baseball Classic, which starts March 9th. He is currently working out in the DR, and has thrown live bullpen sessions on schedule with the pitchers actually at camp for the Giants, but he still hasn't had time to prepare under the supervision of pitching coach Dave Righetti, which worries San Francisco. The two are trying to work things out currently, but if Cueto doesn't report to camp shortly, it may not be surprising to see him held out of the WBC.
With several veterans competing for the backup third base role, Arroyo will see less at-bats this spring and is destined to start the year in the minors, CSN Bay Area reports.
The Giants brought in Jimmy Rollins and Aaron Hill to compete with Conor Gillaspie for the primary backup third base role this spring. General manager Bobby Evans already acknowledged that Arroyo will lose playing time this spring because of the competition, but he also mentioned that organization "knows he can hit at this level." While that is a positive comment to hear from the GM, it also means the club has already determined that Arroyo won't be competing for a 25-man roster spot. A strong start in the minors would go a long way in forcing the Giants' hand should a spot open up in the majors at some point this season.
Pence (side) took 25 swings of live batting practice today and said he felt great after the session, Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area reports.
Hitting was the last step of the rehab process left for Pence to complete, so this was a promising sign for his nearing return. His back injury was never considered serious, and the club was simply taking it extra precaution with their veteran outfielder after he was experiencing pain in his side. Assuming there are no setbacks, Pence should get into some spring games and be ready for Opening Day.
Cueto is still in the Dominican Republic taking care of his ailing father, Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area Sports reports.
The absence has lasted longer than initially expected, but manager Bruce Bochy says Cueto is working out in a team facility there. It's nothing to be concerned with at this point and it seems reasonable that the Giants' ace will return as soon as possible.
Heathcott spent most of 2016 at the Triple-A level, first with the White Sox and then with the Yankees. In his final stop of the season with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, the 26-year-old outfielder slashed .230/.271/.363 in 97 plate appearances. While he will have a chance to prove himself at spring training, he will most likely begin 2017 in Triple-A.
