SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Ryan Vogelsong is set to start the spring training opener for the champion San Francisco Giants, followed in the rotation by Matt Cain and Madison Bumgarner.
Manager Bruce Bochy said Friday that Tim Lincecum will pitch the fourth game and Barry Zito will start after that. Bochy said there will likely be some shuffling before the end of camp.
The Giants begin the exhibition play Saturday against a visiting split squad of Los Angeles Angels.
Earlier this week, Bochy announced Cain would be the regular season opening day starter.
