SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Matt Cain, Madison Bumgarner, Jeremy Affeldt and Javier Lopez will be among the more experienced Giants throwing off bullpen mounds Saturday as pitchers begin working toward season-opening shape.
Naturally, San Francisco's prospects will draw plenty of attention. One pitcher guaranteed to be scrutinized Saturday is left-handed starter Edwin Escobar, whom general manager Brian Sabean mentioned as having an outside chance to ascend all the way to the Majors this year. Sunday's contingent will include right-handed starter Kyle Crick, the organization's No. 1 prospect, and reliever Derek Law, who enjoyed an outstanding 2013 season in the Minors and the Arizona Fall League.
