The San Francisco Giants will face the Chicago White Sox at 1:05 PM PDT today at Scottsdale Stadium. It’s the first of two meetings between the two teams this spring. The White Sox are an even 5-5 this spring, while the Giants remain steady at 8-5.
Here are today’s lineups.
San Francisco Giants
Tim Lincecum is on the mound again today. The starting rotation is starting to show that they are human, but it’ll still be interesting to see how Timmy fairs out there today. They’ve looked good all spring, so hopefully it will carry over into the regular season. The updated lineup is below. Originally, the lineup contained Pagan and Belt, instead of Blanco and Sanchez.
#SFGiants lineup change for 3/12: Blanco CF, Morse LF, Posey C, Pence RF, Sandoval 3B, Sanchez 1B, Abreu 2B, Crawford SS and Lincecum RHP

Apparently Belt is sick with a stomach bug.
Belt still sick, Sanchez at first base. Here he was yesterday, right after yelling: “Boch, it’s a piece of cake!” http://t.co/NVOzh8PWbi

The Giants made another round of cuts today.
Mitch Lively was a bit of surprise being cut this early. He’ll still have his shot though.
Lively was Venezuelan League pitcher of the year. Didn’t allow an ER this spring. Not a roster candidate but thought he’d stay longer. — Andrew Baggarly (@CSNBaggs) March 12, 2014
Good news for Marco Scutaro!
And just for laughs:
Writer I’ve never seen before just walked up to Giants PR guy: “Hey, where is Barry Zito’s locker?” — Alex Pavlovic (@AlexPavlovic) March 12, 2014
