Torres, Casilla headed for rehab in Arizona

SAN FRANCISCO -- Manager Bruce Bochy said Saturday that outfielder Andres Torres and right-hander Santiago Casilla will intensify rehabilitation of their respective injuries at the Giants' training complex in Scottsdale, Ariz., while the team is on its upcoming three-city, 10-game trip.

This plan eliminates any possibility that Torres, the Giants' Opening Day center fielder and leadoff hitter who's nursing a strained left Achiiles tendon, will be activated from the 15-day disabled list when he's eligible next Monday.

"I think he's still a little ways away," Bochy said of Torres, who has resumed hitting and light running.

Casilla threw 20 fastballs in the bullpen Friday, marking the first time he had thrown off a mound since he went on the disabled list April 6 with an inflamed throwing elbow.

Bochy said that both Torres and Casilla might participate in extended spring training games during their Arizona stint.
