Giants opening day roster finalized

The Giants finalized their roster for Monday’s season debut against the Dodgers.

Of note, the team kept Pablo Sandoval on the active roster rather than placing him on the disable list, likely indicating the third baseman’s worrisome elbow injury is improving.

With Hector Sanchez’s health iffy, the club will also carry three catchers after purchasing the contract of Guillermo Quiroz, who smacked a three-run homer in Saturday’s spring finale against the A’s. To compensate, the Giants sent OF Cole Gillespie to Triple-A.

Here’s the Giants’ 25-man roster for opening day:

Starting pitchers:

RHP Matt Cain (opening day starter)
LHP Madison Bumgarner
RHP Tim Lincecum
LHP Barry Zito
