Bochy has some options for doubleheader

NEW YORK -- The Giants will do their best to manage their roster around Monday's doubleheader, and manager Bruce Bochy said that he will attempt to use as many of his players as possible.

Bochy said that he will start outfielder Gregor Blanco in the second half of Monday's doubleheader, and he also said that catcher Buster Posey will only start the first game. San Francisco's two starting pitchers -- Tim Lincecum and Madison Bumgarner -- will be primed to go again this weekend.

"We'll see how this one goes, but there's some guys I want to get out there," Bochy said. "I don't know how washed out [Ryan] Theriot is, but there's a chance we could use him off the bench in both games. ... Ideally, you'd like to get all the guys in there. I know [Hector] Sanchez will be catching Bumgarner."

The doubleheader means that San Francisco will likely need to make a roster move for Friday's game against San Diego. Both Lincecum and Bumgarner would be on short rest to start that game on Friday, and the Giants may have to find a contingency plan off the roster at Triple-A Fresno.

Luke Hacker, who is 4-0 with a 2.19 ERA for Fresno, could be an option.

"Hacker's throwing the ball well. We'll address it once we get through [Monday]," Bochy said. "We'll see how we get through this and where we're at Friday. We'll talk about it after [Monday's] games."
