The Giants will option pitcher Eric Hacker back to Triple-A Fresno and recall reliever Steve Edlefsen on Saturday morning, a team source said after Friday’s 5-3 loss to the Padres.

Edlefsen up. Hopefully Danny Otero finds his control in Fresno and comes back soon.

Manager Bruce Bochy dropped his strongest hint yet that Brandon Belt would be the Giants opening day first baseman, with Aubrey Huff shifting to left field. Bochy repeatedly stressed that that all decisions are in pencil until at least Wednesday’s final roster cuts. But when asked if Belt will be at first base for the regular-season opener against Arizona on Friday, he did nothing do dispel the notion. "He’s been getting most of the playing time there,’’ Bochy said. "We’ve said we’d put the bats out there that are swinging well."

Sources tell (Andrew Baggarly) that the volume of dialogue has increased between the Giants and Cain's representatives as Friday's soft deadline edges near. Cain reiterated on Saturday that he sees the start of the season as a "cutoff" to ensure he stays focused on baseball.

"Manny's playing well," Bochy said. "We'll meet after the day off and reevaluate where we're at. Freddy Sanchez will play a part in this when we can get him out there. Manny's playing some good ball."

Time running out as Sanchez aims for roster | SFGiants.com. Your daily reminder that Freddy Sanchez hasn't played in the field yet this spring, while Manny Burriss is hitting .441/.486/.647. Fontenot, Theriot, or Burriss? Why not take them all? (And I'm not ashamed to restate my hope that Manny can turn into Willie Harris one of these days.)

Asked if he would rather be a bench player in the big leagues or a starter at Triple-A, Belt made another surprising comment. He said he’d rather play. "That’s a tough decision," he said. "We all want to be in the big leagues. But my main goal is to play every day. If I have to start in Fresno, that’s what I’ll do. Then my goal will be to produce enough to get back up here."

From Baggs. I'm with Belt. If he isn't starting in the majors, he should be starting in Fresno. Also, Brandon Belt probably isn't going to start the season in the majors. This is your weekly reminder. Every time I type it out, I feel like I'm dropping acid.

"I see a pure hitter. Just a pure hitter," Alou said Tuesday. "I see a guy with a very simple, consistent swing that gets right to the ball. I haven’t seen him swing and miss, and I’ve been watching him ever since instructional league. I haven’t seen him swing and miss yet."

Felipe Alou’s clock is set to Panik Time | Extra Pavs -- Think I've decided that every week needs something on Joe Panik until he's in the majors or he hits .210 in San Jose. I loved this quote, even if Alou then made Panik warm up in the bullpen for three innings before forgetting about him.
