Giants designate Jeff Francoeur for assignment
For the second time this season, Jeff Francoeur has been DFA'd. He's hitting .204/.238/.298 with three homers in 256 plate appearances.
He was granted his release from the Royals on July 5 and signed with the Giants four days later.
Francoeur, 29, once appeared a very promising prospect, but he's never lived up to expectations that came from his excellent rookie season. He still has a cannon for a throwing arm and the potential to hit for power, but this season he's hitting just .204/.238/.298 with three homers in 256 plate appearances.
He's still young enough that he'll likely find work somewhere, but he's now been discarded by five teams in the past five seasons.
