Giants manager Bruce Bochy indicated that Ryan Theriot could be his regular second baseman going forward.
Theriot didn't start Thursday because Bochy thought he might be tired after a long flight from Arizona, where he was working out in extended spring training. He will be in the lineup Friday, and it sounds like he'll play ahead of the struggling Emmanuel Burriss most days. "We need another bat in the lineup," Bochy said. "He's a proven hitter. ... What's going to be important for us is getting production everywhere."
