The San Francisco Giants have had a relatively quiet, uneventful spring training. This is the type of spring that manager Bruce Bochy hoped for.

The Giants are dealing with a a few injury issues, which they hope will not be a lingering concern. Pablo Sandoval has a sore throwing arm, but should be able to return to action soon.

Relief pitcher Jose Mijares is on the shelf due to a sore elbow and he is likely to open the season on the DL.

Hector Sanchez is the biggest concern for the Giants at this stage of the spring. He came to camp overweight and in poor condition. Then, Sanchez developed calf and shoulder problems.

Sanchez has not played in several days and if he cannot get fully healthy soon, he will not be ready to open the season. Sanchez will need to get into shape and prove to manager Bruce Bochy that he's healthy and in shape.

Outside of these three issues, the Giants seem ready to open the season. The team is doing some fine tuning as April 1 is rapidly approaching.

Let's take a closer look at who is winning the Giants' spring battles. Stats are courtesy of baseball-reference.com
