Nevertheless, Bochy said Friday, the Giants "[aren't] thinking or dwelling on anything that's happened. They've done a tremendous job of picking each other up. That's the only way this is going to work, I think."
Bochy acknowledged that though the Giants might lack enviable 25-man depth, they possess enough roster flexibility to ease the impact of the injuries. Yusmeiro Petit has been an ideal emergency starter. Michael Morse has made a smooth transition from left field to first base. Brandon Hicks has settled in at second base. And left fielder Tyler Colvin has proven helpful.
"These guys have done a nice job of contributing on a daily basis," Bochy said. "We've gotten contributions throughout the lineup."
