The San Francisco Giants are getting closer and closer to the end of Spring Training and the beginning of the 2015 season. There are still position battles to be sorted out, players recovering from injuries, and other more general questions heading into the 2015 season.

In this week’s Giants Mailbag, we discuss the potential overuse of the bullpen in 2015, if Joe Panik will step up in Pablo Sandoval‘s absence, and which pitcher, George Kontos or Jean Machi, will earn the final spot in the bullpen.

This is the 10th edition of the Giants Mailbag, which is a series of weekly posts. In these articles, I answer fans’ questions about the Giants, and I choose three questions to answer from the ones sent to me over Twitter.

In last week’s Giants Mailbag, I answered questions about which new player has the most potential to have a strong year for the Giants, who will step up offensively with Hunter Pence out, and how concerning the Giants’ slow start to Spring Training is.

Thank you to the fans that submitted questions this week. Let’s get the 10th edition of the Giants Mailbag started.
