Blach was added to the Giants' 40-man roster Friday, Andrew Baggarly of the Bay Area News Group reports. The lefty has made a quick rise since being drafted in the fifth round out of Creighton University in 2012, opening his third professional season at Triple-A Sacramento and holding his own in the PCL throughout the year. He may never strike out enough batters to be fantasy-relevant in mixed leagues, but Blach has shown great control and may be one of the team's top injury-replacement rotation options during the year.
The Giants re-assigned 11 players to minor-league camp Tuesday: catchers Aramis Garcia and Ty Ross, second baseman Kelby Tomlinson, shortstops Carlos Triunfel and Christian Arroyo, outfielder Mac Williamson and pitchers Cory Gearrin, Chris Stratton, Ty Blach, Kyle Crick and Adalberto Mejia.
The Giants re-assigned right-handers Kyle Crick, Clayton Blackburn, Chris Heston, Jose Casilla, Sandy Rosario and Rafael Dolis, catchers Jeff Arnold and Ben Turner, outfielders Mac Williamson and Javier Herrera, left-handers Ty Blach and infielder Joe Panik to minor-league camp on Thursday.
