2/25 Samardzija, Cashner get head start
Jeff Samardzija and Andrew Cashner threw live BP on Thursday before the full squad stretch, getting their work in early at Fitch Park. They weren’t the only ones on the field for extra work. Infielders Mike Fontenot, Ryan Theriot, Jeff Baker, Micah Hoffpauir and others did drills with coaches Alan Trammell and Ivan DeJesus.
Jeff Gray, who has been sidelined with a sore groin, did long toss in the outfield. Angel Guzman, slowed after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery in January, is close to throwing off a mound.
