Hicks, who made the season-opening squad as a non-roster invitee to Spring Training, was hitting .444 (4-for-9) with two doubles and a home run through Saturday.
Expect Joaquin Arias and Ehire Adrianza to get their share of playing time, though. Bochy said he will continue to settle on the player who gives the Giants the best matchup that day when he's selecting a second baseman. It could be a platoon-based decision or simply sticking with a hot hand.
"I'll try to mix it up among all three of them," Bochy said.
Bochy added that Brandon Crawford's presence at shortstop Saturday, even with Dodgers left-hander Paul Maholm opposing the Giants, shouldn't come as a surprise. The left-handed-batting Crawford started last Tuesday against Arizona lefty Wade Miley and isn't automatically subject to being platooned. But Bochy did say that he would "give [Crawford] a break" against certain left-handers, which would afford additional playing time for Adrianza, Arias or Hicks.
