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.
