Nate Schierholtz, OF—Schierholtz got some playing time when Winn went down with an injury, and is playing a lot off the bench lately. He needs more consistent at-bats, and he's proving himself in the field. I'd prefer him coming in to sub instead of Eugenio Velez.
Eugenio Velez, OF—As I've said numerous times, I'm just not a fan. He strikes out when he pinch hits, he's not an outfielder, and I haven't seen the power that he supposedly has had since birth. I can't wait until Andres Torres gets back. Hopefully they can find a place for Velez, but until he gets more consistent at the plate, Bochy has got to stop using him to pinch-hit.
Rich Aurilia, IF—He's not performing at the plate, but he's still got the skills and the mindset to contribute to this team. His strong top hand will help him get line drives, and he still has his rightfield-first mentality.
Juan Uribe, IF—A good pickup by the Giants, he's contributing here and there and still has the skills to start if someone gets injured or if someone else slumps really bad.
Steve Holm, C—I like him. He's a true backup catcher, and it takes a lot of pressure off of Pablo Sandoval, allowing him to focus on other things, like playing third base. Not an automatic out, which is also good to have on the bench.
