Mychael Urban of CSN Bay Area interviewed Giants GM Brian Sabean today…a few notes –
- In regards to payroll, Sabean says the Giants will go up incrementally in spending, but not dramatically.
- He says Brandon Crawford‘s done a really good job making mechanical adjustments in the Arizona Fall League, and has “earned” his high batting average there.
- Joe Panik, for a first-year player, has played second base really well; Gary Brown‘s showing signs of fatigue but he’s had some nice at-bats.
- Freddy Sanchez is back into rehab, and will probably start throwing around December 1st (seemingly on schedule).
- Buster Posey has hit on the field three days a week, and has continued to catch on the pitching machine; he’s going through an intensive running program as well.
