1B Ishikawa Having Big Spring

By Chris "The Scout" Farino,

San Francisco Giants' rookie first basemen, Travis Ishikawa, is giving the Giants validation for starting at 1B opening day.  He is also showing that Pablo Sandoval isn't the only top prospect for the Giants that will be on the roster to start the season.  
Ishikawa is batting .314 with a league second-best five home runs thus far in Spring Training.
Ishikawa's power is not a fluke, he smashed 16 home runs with just 174 at bats for AAA Fresno in 2008. He added three more after being brought up to the Giants with 95 at bats and batted .274. Don't be surprised if the San Francisco Giants corner infielders are star prospects Sandavol (3B) and Travis Ishikawa (1B). Either way if Ishikawa keeps hitting home runs, he will start somewhere in the Giants' line up.
