Posey Scratched From Lineup Vs Dodgers With Stiff Neck

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- A stiff neck will keep Buster Posey out of the first Giants-Dodgers game of the new year.

Posey was scratched an hour before Wednesday night's game with stiffness that was described as "very minor." Tim Federowicz was inserted in the starting lineup. Posey has had a heavier-than-usual workload early in camp because he'll leave in the coming week to join Team USA for the World Baseball Classic.

San Francisco Giants:
1. Span CF
2. Nuñez DH
3. Pence RF
4. Belt 1B
5. Hill 3B
