Buster Posey started at first base Tuesday for the first time this spring and handled the position smoothly. He made a difficult catch on Wily Peralta's third-inning foul popup before deftly plucking shortstop Ehire Adrianza's low throw out of the dirt on Jonathan Lucroy's fifth-inning grounder.

Michael Morse, who hasn't been tested much defensively in left field, made a nice sliding catch on Rickie Weeks' fourth-inning line drive. "I think he feels he's over the [right] calf issue," Bochy said.

• Bochy said third baseman Pablo Sandoval likely would not play in Wednesday's Cactus League finale against Colorado due to a "gash" in his hand. Bochy indicated the mishap was not serious. Except for Sandoval and Scutaro, the entire projected lineup is expected to start.
