"It actually worked out well," manager Bruce Bochy said.
Tim Lincecum was among the pitchers who threw off a mound. "He feels good and looks great," Bochy said of Lincecum, who has yet to face hitters in live batting practice.
Left-hander Michael Kickham, one of San Francisco's more promising starting prospects, overcame discomfort caused by a blister and logged his first throwing session. Right-hander Boof Bonser, who's in the closing stages of his recovery from Tommy John elbow surgery, is expected to throw a bullpen session Thursday.
Bochy and pitching coach Dave Righetti are pondering whether to stage a five-inning intrasquad game Friday or skip the game to set up pitchers for Cactus League appearances. The Giants open the exhibition season Saturday against the Los Angeles Angels.
