SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - A little bit of playful razzing comes with the territory for Brett Bochy.
He's in his first big league camp for the San Francisco Giants. And, his dad's the manager.
Yet a quick poll around the clubhouse will tell you that his teammates know the right-hander earned this opportunity.
Bochy has made an impression on the Giants' brass nearly three years after elbow ligament-repla replacement surgery. He went 7-3 with a 2.53 ERA and 14 saves in 41 appearances and 51 1-3 innings last year for Double-A Richmond.
A manager's son being in camp is not unprecedented. Two years ago, Detroit skipper Jim Leyland's catcher son, Patrick, received a spring training invite from the Tigers.
