03/03 Padres Preview: ST Game 6 @ San Francisco

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Josh Johnson makes his Padres debut against Tim Lincecum and the Giants.

After split squads went 0-1-1 yesterday afternoon, the Padres are still looking for their first Spring victory today as they travel to Scottsdale to take on the Giants. Making his much-anticipated Padres debut will be Josh Johnson, who is likely to have a spot in the rotation going into Opening Day of the regular season. San Diego signed JJ to a one-year $8 million deal in the offseason. Following a season of struggles on the mound and injuries that kept him off of it, Johnson looks to fit in nicely and bounce back to form with the Friars this season.

Venable is leading off today and taking over in center field today after yesterday's Maybin mishap. He'll likely be doing that during the regular season also now that it's looking pretty definite that Cam won't be available for Opening Day.

As for our opponent, the Giants are sending Tim Lincecum to the mound for his Spring debut. The Padres struggled a great deal against the right-hander in 2013, but Lincecum has been known in the past to put forth subpar Spring performances. So it would be a good time for the Padres to capitalize and put some offense together and maybe get that first victory of the year.

Game time is once again set for 12:05 and audio will be available via At-Bat and MLB.com.
