The Giants will call up Federowicz from Triple-A Sacramento on Friday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. The Giants designated Jae-Gyun Hwang for assignment to make room for Federowicz, who'll put together reserve work as a catcher and perhaps first baseman.
Federowicz was designated for assignment Tuesday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. This is the corresponding move with Buster Posey returning from the 7-day DL. If Federowicz clears waivers, he'll wind up with Triple-A Sacramento.
Federowicz was added to the Giants' 25-man roster Tuesday. With Buster Posey headed to the 7-day disabled list, Federowicz will serve as the Giants' backup catcher until he is back. With a capable Nick Hundley ahead of him, it's unlikely that Federowicz will see much playing time during his brief stint with San Francisco.
Federowicz agreed to join the Giants on a minor league deal Tuesday, Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reports. The 29-year-old backstop has mashed Triple-A pitching over the past few years, but his career .194 batting line in the big leagues limits his value significantly. As long as Buster Posey is behind the dish in San Francisco, Federowicz will likely have to settle for an organizational depth role.
Federowicz was outrighted to Triple-A Iowa on Monday, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports. Like he has in past seasons, Federowicz offered virtually nothing at the plate for the Cubs during his limited time in the big leagues. He'll likely continue to be an organizational depth piece moving forward.
