Bochy Declares LF Open Competition

 

Fred Lewis might have more idle time in his immediate future. Giants Manager Bruce Bochy sat Lewis against a left-hander in favor of Andres Torres, then declared that left field was an open competition.

Lewis is batting .182 against left-handers.

"Sure, we're looking for somebody to take that outfield spot if we think we can get some more production," said Bochy, who also mentioned throwing Nate Schierholtz into the mix. "We'd like to get Freddie going, (but) we're at the point now where it's going to be competitive. It might be the best matchup on that given day, and see who steps up and takes it."

Edit:

Bochy made a little news after Andres Torres hit a two-run double against Andrew Miller. Bochy said struggling Fred Lewis will not be an automatic in left field every night. Bochy now will choose among Lewis, Torres and Nate Schierholtz.

"Sure," Bochy said, "we're looking for someone to take that outfield spot, where we can use some production. We tried to get Freddie going. Now, we're at the point where it's going to be competitive. We're going to go with whoever we think is going to be the best matchup that day. We'll see who steps up and takes it."

Bochy, how about some Bowkermania?
