Giants expecting less playing time for OF Maxwell, Blanco


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(5/18/2015) Now that outfielder Hunter Pence has returned to the Giants' lineup, manager Bruce Bochy admitted that playing time will be squeezed for Justin Maxwell and Gregor Blanco, per the San Francisco Chronicle

Maxwell had opened some eyes with good defense, but struggled offensively in May, making it easier to move him to the bench in favor of Pence. Blanco is hitting .266 in 32 games and will continue to be valuable bench piece moving forward. 

"It'll be up to me to keep these guys sharp," Bochy said. "They know Hunter's going to be out there every day, and Angel (Pagan). I'm going to have to get creative in left field."


Giants' Justin Maxwell yet to take off offensively in May


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/11/2015) Giants outfielder Justin Maxwell has hit just .219/.257/.250 with no home runs and one stolen base in 32 at-bats in May.

There was talk in late April of Maxwell sticking as a regular in the lineup upon Hunter Pence's return, but his production has turned south over the last two weeks, with his current .714 OPS representing his lowest mark since joining the lineup on a regular basis. He'll look for more success when the Giants travel to Houston and Cincinnati this week.


Giants outfielder Justin Maxwell back in the lineup Monday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/4/2015) Giants right fielder Justin Maxwell is back in the starting lineup Monday agianst the Padres, sending Gregor Blanco to the bench.

Giants' Justin Maxwell out of lineup Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/3/2015) Giants outfielder Justin Maxwell is not in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Angels.

Maxwell has made nine straight starts in right field thanks to a hot start with the bat, but he's hitless in 11 at-bats in his last three games and just 2 for 21 in his last five games. Gregor Blanco will draw the start in right field and bat eighth.

The Giants (-105) are a coin flip with the Angels (-105) Sunday, per VegasInsider.com.


Giants' Bochy: 'No way' to take Justin Maxwell out of lineup


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2015) The Giants outfield is getting more crowded with the news that Brandon Belt will see more time in left field, and manager Bruce Bochy indicated that Justin Maxwell will continue to receive regular playing time when Hunter Pence returns from the disabled list, the San Jose Mercury News reports.

"There’s no way you can take Maxwell out of the lineup right now," Bochy said. "You’ve got to find a place to put him, with the way he’s been swinging."

Maxwell, who homered Saturday, has hit .308/.400/.615 with three home runs and nine RBI in 39 at-bats. Bochy mentioned the possibility of Maxwell and Pence manning the corners while center fielder Angel Pagan gets days off here and there.

"I could keep them all going, keep them all fresh," Bochy said.

If everyone's healthy, it appears that Nori Aoki could see the starkest reduction in playing time, despite him posting a .303/.391/.382 line with five stolen bases in 76 at-bats while serving as the team's regular leadoff batter.

Giants' Bochy on keeping Justin Maxwell in lineup: 'He's earned it'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

He is batting .417 (5 for 12) with one triple, one home run and three RBI in his last four games. He also had the game-winning hit in the 10th inning Thursday against the Dodgers.

"Right now with the way he's playing, he's earned it," manager Bruce Bochy said, per CSN Bay Area. "I like his at-bats, and not just the hit to win the game, but the quality of the at-bats has been very good. I look at the patience he's shown, particularly with two strikes. He's not panicking. He's quiet up there and not expanding the zone. He's keeping his composure up there. He's not chasing."

Giants OF Justin Maxwell's pinch-hit single brings home win


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/9/2015) Giants outfielder Justin Maxwell drove in the only run of Thursday's game against the Padres, singling in the 12th inning to give his team a 1-0 win.

The Giants had a man on second and one out in the 12th inning thanks to a fielding error, and after recording the second out of the inning, the Padres chose to intentionally walk Gregor Blanco to bring up the pinch hitter. Maxwell's single to center field delivered the only run of the game.

"I was just trying to hit the ball hard," Maxwell said after the game, per the Associated Press. "He made some tough pitches and I faced him a few years ago so I kind of knew what he threw. When (Brandon) Crawford got on base there, then they walked Blanco in front of me, so I was ready to hit."

He's now 2 for 7 in three games this season.
