Giants: Bumgarner said his body felt good, “but my mechanics were just a bit off. That’s understandable at this point. I was just happy to be able to go out and get outs.’

As far as his schedule leading up to the opener is concerned, he said, “I feel pretty good where I’m at. There is not a lot to fine-tune before April.”

Ryan Vogelsong follwed Bumgarner and gave up one hit over two innings. He struck out one.


Brewers: Roenicke said 3B Aramis Ramirez “is progressing well” as he comes back from surgery in December to remove a non-cancerous polyp from his colon.

Giants: Left-hander Jeremy Affeldt, expected to be the team’s primary setup man out of the bullpen, will be eased back into game action after having surgery to repair muscle tears in his legs. He was scheduled to throw a bullpen session Friday and will throw batting practice on Sunday.


A strong winter storm was expected to hit the Phoenix area late Friday night and threaten Saturday’s games. Right-hander Kyle Lohse, the scheduled starter for the Brewers‘ spring home opener against the Dodgers, would get his work done in the covered cages if the game is rained out.

Bruce Bochy was not sure how his club, scheduled to play on the road against Oakland, would handle pitching chores.
