The big news of today: Brandon Belt has been optioned to Triple-A Fresno and Cody Ross has been reinstated from the disabled list. The reason for this move is likely because he needs to be an every day player and he was not getting this opportunity with the Giants. Also, as the brass says, to work on hitting.
Pablo Sandoval was scratched from the lineup today with a right tricep strain. DeRosa will be playing 3B ad Huff will play 1B.
