• Manager Bruce Bochy said first baseman Brandon Belt (neck) was held out of baseball-related activities Monday. Bochy hopes that Belt, whose discomfort is not considered serious, can play Tuesday against Colorado.
• Mark Minicozzi, who has one of the Giants' three homers this spring, crushed a ninth-inning drive to left field that was ruled foul. Bochy confirmed that the call was correct. "I hit a few of those," said Bochy, who spent parts of nine seasons in the Majors. "They were always foul."
• Yusmeiro Petit, the pre-camp favorite to capture a long reliever's role, fell to 0-2 and has allowed eight runs (seven earned) in 2 1/3 innings. Bochy reiterated that Petit's finesse style often doesn't play well in the Cactus League. "This is not the best place for him to get in shape," Bochy said. "He's not a power guy."
