David Huff (shoulder) allowed a run on two hits over an inning of work in his Cactus League debut Monday.
Matt Cain tossed five no-hit innings before Huff allowed a single to the first man he faced in the sixth. "I thought he threw the ball fine his first time out," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. "We'll try to get him stretched out. It was good to see him pitch an inning." Assuming he's healthy, Huff should make the Opening Day roster as a long reliever.
Matt Lindstrom (oblique) played catch Monday and went through a strenuous workout in the training room.
Lindstrom had been shut down since last Tuesday, when he had a setback with his strained oblique. There's no timetable for his return to game action, but he hasn't been ruled out for Opening Day yet. "I'm not tentative, but I'm not real confident in it just yet," Lindstrom said. "It's one of those things where you want to fire it in there as hard as you can, but you don't want it to do what it did last time and take a step back."
