Bruce Bochy’s early Giants rest days lead to surprising lineup vs. Padres

SAN FRANCISCO—Giants backup catcher Erik Kratz has plenty of experience as a Position Player Pitching, but Bruce Bochy said Friday that Pablo Sandoval is still his first choice for the role.

So some things haven’t changed. But the lineup certainly did Friday, and it came as a bit of a shock. Here’s the group for the second game of the season:

Michael Reed RF (picked up a week ago)
Buster Posey 1B (not catching after just one day)
Yangervis Solarte 2B (no Panik after just one day)
Evan Longoria 3B (this is normal)
Brandon Crawford SS (ditto)
Connor Joe LF (picked up eight days ago)
Duggar CF (nothing strange here)
Kratz C (picked up last weekend)
Holland LHP (nothing strange, except some of the t-shirts)

Pending retirement’s just another word for nothing left to lose….
