by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Middlebrooks has been ice cold at the plate for about two weeks now, collecting a hit in just three of his last 13 games played. He has yet to record a hit in the month of May and could be in danger of losing more playing time if this funk continues.

Cory Spangenberg, who started at second for the Padres on Tuesday, got the start at third base Wednesday against the Giants. 


Giants' Casey McGehee feeling the heat from fans
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12:43 pm ET) Giants third baseman Casey McGehee can't quite put things together yet at the plate, leading to manager Bruce Bochy to sit him in Tuesday's game. Over the weekend, McGehee was hit with a smattering of boos when he struck out with a chance to drive home runs. He said he understands, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

"I have no hard feelings toward anybody who got on me last night," McGehee said. "There were times last night, if I were up there, I'd have booed myself. I'm looking forward to the day I get things going and the boos turn around."

McGehee, who is hitting .181 with three RBI in 72 at-bats, thinks he's starting to have some better at-bats.

"I felt especially on the weekend I was swinging the bat pretty good," he said. "The trick is to just keep going. I've been down and out, counted out, before. The only way I know how to do it is to keep showing up, preparing, keeping my nose down and keep working.

"I guarantee you there wasn't one person in the stands who was more frustrated or disappointed than myself. It's not easy. (Booing) is not something you look forward to. At the same time, I'm frustrated, too."
