Skip Schumaker (shoulder) will travel to Arizona on Thursday to begin participating in extended spring training games.
Schumaker dislocated his left shoulder during an exhibition game on March 21. He's been taking batting practice in recent days, and he's now ready for game action. He'll go from there to a rehab assignment at Triple-A Louisville. He's looking at an early- to mid-May return.
Michael Pineda was ejected in the second inning of Wednesday's game for having a foreign substance on his neck.

Two starts ago -- against the same Red Sox club -- Pineda made news for what appeared to be a foreign substance on his hand. When questioned about the substance after that start, Pineda called it "dirt." Fool me once, shame one you, but Red Sox manager John Farrell wasn't going to be fooled again. Pineda could be in for a suspension as a result of the ejection.
Hector Sanchez hit a grand slam in the 11th inning -- his second home run of the game -- and the Giants outlasted the Rockies for a 12-10 win on Wednesday.
The teams combined for 22 runs and 29 hits, with Sanchez accounting for four of those runs on one swing. Getting the start for Buster Posey behind the plate, Sanchez also added a solo homer in the eighth inning. They were his first two home runs of the year, and his five RBI more than doubled his total heading into the game.
