C. Trent mentions Gil on his blog today.
Jerry Gil is back. The versatile Gil caught manager Dusty Baker's eye early in the spring and after a quad injury set him back, Gil has played well in his return. He starts today at shortstop, perhaps Baker is looking to see if Gil could play there in Alex Gonzalez's absence. It's Gil's first start of the spring, having hit safely in 4 of his 6 appearances. He's played SS, 3B, LF, CF and RF.
