SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Like most ambitious young men his age, Christian Arroyo is preparing for his career. Except Arroyo's counterparts are in college surrounded by peers. Arroyo is an apprentice engulfed by titans of his industry.
Arroyo is the youngest player at the Giants' Spring Training camp. In fact, he's believed to be the youngest Giant in camp for a while. Arroyo is 19, one year older than outfielder Ken Henderson was when he arrived at Spring Training in 1965 as one of Willie Mays' understudies.
