SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Emmanuel Burriss is San Francisco's starting second baseman.
The Giants optioned Kevin Frandsen to Class AAA Fresno on Tuesday, giving the job to Burriss after a stiff competition in spring training.
"(Burriss') all-around play was very solid," Giants general manager Brian Sabean said. "It was a unanimous opinion from all involved -- front-office, coaching staff, scouts. He had a tremendous spring."
Burriss, 24, was hitting .357 with four doubles, four stolen bases and nine RBIs entering the Giants' game against Texas in Surprise on Tuesday. Frandsen hit .274 with a homer and six RBIs.
