Giants' Ray Black: Headed to big leagues
San Francisco cleared room in the bullpen for Black by trading away three players -- including reliever Cory Gearrin -- to the Rangers on Sunday. Across 31.2 innings between Sacramento and Double-A Richmond this season, the 28-year-old Black posted a 2.27 ERA and 0.79 WHIP while riding a triple-digit fastball to 58 strikeouts. He'll likely work in middle relief for the Giants initially but could earn his way into a higher-leverage role if he makes major-league hitters whiff at this same prolific rate.
