Ryan Vogelsong will take to the mound today against the Texas Rangers in the Giants Cactus league match. He will be aiming to improve upon an awful start the last time out, and will be looking to reach the high standard the rest of the rotation have set this spring. Here’s is how the Giants will line up behind him:

Gregor Blanco – CF

Brandon Crawford – SS

Pablo Sandoval – 3B

Roger Kieschnick – LF

Mark Minicozzi – 1B

Andrew Susac – C

Juan Perez – RF

Brandon Hicks – DH

Nick Noonan – 2B

Things to look out for: Firstly, Ryan Vogelsong, as previously mentioned, will aim to improve upon his awful start his last time out. Brandon Hicks, the young second baseman is continuing to impress as he aims to win a place on the roster. Finally, Mark Minicozzi, the fairytale that is Minicozzi will continue today, look for him to build upon his impressive spring thus far.

This is how Texas will lineup;
