Jarrett Parker went 2-for-2 with two walks, two runs scored, and two RBI in the Giants' 9-5 victory over the Reds on Sunday.

Parker singled in the top of the first inning and slugged a two-run homer off Reds minor leaguer Nick Routt in the top of the fourth, producing a positive result in all four of his plate appearances on the day. The 28-year-old is looking to claim a share of the Giants' starting left field gig out of camp this spring.

Matt Moore didn't make it out of the second inning in his Cactus League debut Sunday versus the Reds.

Moore struck out two batters in a scoreless first, but Scott Schebler drew a walk to open the second and the Reds rattled off four hits in a row against Giants reliever Matt Reynolds -- with one of the four Cincinnati runs being charged to Moore. He officially went 1 1/3 innings, yielding two walks and one hit against three strikeouts. Moore is locked into a spot in the San Francisco rotation.

Johnny Cueto will not report to Giants camp this weekend as hoped.

Cueto is tending to his ill father in his native Dominican Republic and working on getting him a visa. Manager Bruce Bochy said Saturday that he still didn't have a firm date as to when the pitcher would report, but Cueto being a little behind schedule shouldn't be a big deal.

Jae-gyun Hwang hit a three-run home run in Saturday's Cactus League win over the Cubs.

Hwang is an interesting one to watch this spring. 2017 will be his first year playing in America, as the Giants signed him out of the KBO near the end of January. The 29-year-old infielder absolutely crushed it last season with the Lotte Giants, slashing .330/.391/.558 with 26 homers, 104 RBI and 24 steals. He has a chance to make the Opening Day roster and could potentially push Eduardo Nunez for playing time at third base if he truly impresses.

Matt Cain surrendered two runs (one earned) on three hits in two innings during Saturday's Cactus League win over the Cubs.

Cain is in a competition for the final spot in the Giants' rotation. If he pitches respectably this spring, that job is most likely his. The veteran has posted ERA's north of 5.00 each of the past two seasons and has not held an earned run mark under 4.00 since 2012. He is past the point of fantasy intrigue.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Will Smith (elbow) will resume throwing off flat ground in a day or two.

Smith was shut down with elbow inflammation earlier this week but it doesn't appear to be a long-term issue. As of now, there's no concern about his status for Opening Day. The left-hander holds a 2.95 ERA over his last two seasons.

Eduardo Nunez will be limited to DHing while he deals with a sore right shoulder.

He started feeling some tightness during a recent weight room session. Nunez said the injury isn't serious and insisted he'd be fine to play third base if it were the regular season. The Giants tentatively expect him to return to the field sometime next week. Nunez also said he needed five weeks to recover from a hamstring injury after last season but claims his hamstring is back to 100 percent.

Johnny Cueto is not expected to arrive to Giants' spring camp this weekend.

Cueto is still working on getting a visa for his father, who is battling illness in his native Dominican Republic. The right-hander has been throwing at a facility in the Dominican Republic and shouldn't be far behind the team's other starters once he finally arrives.
Feb 25 - 12:00 PM

Chris Marrero blasted a three-run homer off of Kevin Shackelford in the ninth inning on Friday, propelling the Giants to a 6-4 victory over the Reds in Cactus League action.

Marrero also delivered an RBI single in the fifth inning, finishing the afternoon 2-for-3 with a run scored and four RBI. While it's a nice highlight for the 28-year-old to begin the spring season, he's unlikely to crack the big league roster.
Feb 24 - 6:44 PM

Madison Bumgarner looked shaky in his Cactus League opener against the Reds on Friday, surrendering a pair of runs on two hits and a walk in his lone inning of work.

Arismendy Alcantara started the rally with a one-out double and Adam Duvall drew a walk, setting the stage for Patrick Kievlehan's two-run single. All that maters at this stage of spring training is that pitcher's are getting their work in though, so his struggles on Friday really don't mean much. He's firmly entrenched as a top-five starting pitcher in fantasy drafts.
Feb 24 - 6:37 PM

Jake Peavy has yet to sign with a team due to family issues.

Peavy is going through a divorce, and he has four young sons. "It hurts not to be in spring training," the veteran right-hander told ESPN. "I know that day is coming, but right now being a dad is absolutely No. 1. There’s no way in a million years that I could leave my boys at this time." There should be a minor league contract out there somewhere for him when he's ready to return to the mound.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said that Hunter Pence (oblique) is "ready to go" for Friday's Cactus League opener.

Pence is dealing with an intercostal injury initially sustained prior to the start of spring camp. He took part in batting practice on Wednesday, though, and there doesn't seem to be any reason for long term concern. Said Bochy, "I’ll make that call [Thursday] once I talk to the staff, but Hunter assured me he’s a full go with no limitations, and he really wants to play [on Friday]."

Will Smith has been shut down with left elbow inflammation.

The MRI came back clean, but the Giants plan to back off him for the next week. Giants manager Bruce Bochy is still confident he'll be ready for the start of the season, but he can't afford any significant setbacks. Smith posted a 2.95 ERA in 26 appearances after being acquired from the Brewers last August and will pitch in a set-up role if healthy in 2017.
Feb 22 - 12:20 PM

Hunter Pence (oblique) took some swings against Madison Bumgarner on Tuesday.

Pence tweaked his side before reporting to camp, but he took swings off a tee and in the batting cage on Sunday and now he's been cleared to face live pitching. It's a sign that he should be good to go pretty soon.
Feb 21 - 1:19 PM

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Tuesday that Johnny Cueto hopes to arrive in camp by the weekend.

Cueto has been taking care of his father, who is battling an illness in the Dominican Republic. His father is expected to accompany him to the United States, so they are working on a visa issue. Cueto has thrown bullpen sessions and batting practice in preparation for the spring, but it's unclear whether he'll be able to pitch in the upcoming World Baseball Classic.
