Giants' Austin Slater: Retreats to bench
Slater is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Rockies, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Slater will retreat to the bench for what appears to be a routine breather after starting seven straight games. The 25-year-old is hitting .260/.336/.323 across 30 games (25 starts) since taking over an everyday role near the end of July. Gregor Blanco will get the nod in right field in this one.
