Preview: Dodgers at Giants

Hanley Ramirez hopes to be in the starting lineup Thursday when the visiting Los Angeles Dodgers look to salvage the series finale against the San Francisco Giants, who have posted back-to-back one-run wins. Ramirez gave the Dodgers a scare in the seventh inning Wednesday when he was hit by a pitch from Ryan Vogelsong on the left hand, but X-rays were negative. The Giants have won four of five against the Dodgers and moved into first place in the National League West with Wednesday's 2-1 victory.

RHP Tim Hudson has replaced former teammate LHP Barry Zito in the Giants' rotation. Talk about small shoes to fill. Hudson has responded well to the low-pressure situation, rating as the Giants' best pitcher in the first two weeks of the season. The veteran has allowed only 10 hits and three runs in 15 2/3 innings, without having walked a batter.

MLB Team Report - San Francisco Giants - INSIDE PITCH SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- The San Francisco Giants were mostly about pitching on their roads to World Series titles in 2010 and 2012.

The Giants invested heavily on starting pitching in the offseason, re-signing Tim Lincecum for two years and $35 million and adding Tim Hudson for two years and $23 million. They also brought back Ryan Vogelsong for $5 million.

MLB Team Report - San Francisco Giants - INSIDE PITCH SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Marco Scutaro might be running out of time. The San Francisco Giants veteran wasn't close to getting into a spring training game as of March 9, and manager Bruce Bochy was wondering if he should look at other second base options for Opening Day.

1B Brandon Belt was a late arrival to spring training because he was in Florida for an arbitration case that never happened -- he and the Giants settled before the hearing. He'll make $2.9 million, a bit more than the two sides' midway point; he filed for $3.6 million, while the Giants offered $2.05 million. There is still a chance Belt could sign to a multiyear deal. GM Brian Sabean said the Giants "want to hold on to him. But first things first." Thus, the one-year deal.

MLB Team Report - San Francisco Giants - INSIDE PITCH At the Giants' spring training camp, all eyes will be on Tim Hudson and Michael Morse. The 2014 roster will look much like the 2013 roster. In fact, it's not a whole lot different from the 2012 team that won the World Series. Two exceptions will be the talk of training camp: pitcher Tim Hudson and left fielder Michael Morse, both signed to free-agent contracts to fill gaping holes.

1B Brandon Belt opened spring training without a contract. He's the only arbitration-eligible Giant who hasn't agreed to a new deal. He's seeking $3.6 million while the Giants offered $2.05 million. If it comes to a hearing, it's a tossup. The Giants want to have Belt under contract before a hearing is necessary, "If you can avoid it, both parties would like to do that," Belt said.
