  • Bour signed a one-year, $350,000 deal with the LG Twins of the Korea Baseball Organization on Tuesday, Jee-ho Yoo of Yonhap News Agency reports. Bour, who signed a minor-league deal with the Giants this offseason, slashed .213/.346/.426 with six home runs across 130 plate appearances at Triple-A Sacramento before the organization released him over the weekend. The 33-year-old didn't take long to find a more lucrative opportunity overseas, where he'll remain for the rest of the season. Bour will be making his second appearance in a foreign league after he spent the 2020 campaign in Japan's Nippon Professional Baseball with the Hanshin Tigers.

  • The Giants released Bour from Triple-A Sacramento on Saturday. Bour hit .213 with six home runs and 17 RBI in 108 at-bats with the Triple-A squad this season. The 33-year-old last appeared in the big leagues in 2019, when he hit .172 and slugged eight homers with the Angels. Bour is now four years removed from his best season, when as a Marlin in 2017 he posted career highs in both batting average (.289) and home runs (25).

  • Bour did not make the Giants' Opening Day roster and will head to minor-league camp as expected, Maria Guardado of MLB.com reports. After spending 2020 in Japan, Bour was not a part of big-league spring training. He'll serve as organizational depth at first base. The 32-year-old shouldn't be expected to see much time in the majors this year.

  • Bour signed a minor-league contract with the Giants on Friday, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports. The 32-year-old spent the 2020 campaign in Japan with the Hanshin Tigers and had a .245/.344/.424 slash line with 17 homers in 102 games. Even with starting first baseman Brandon Belt (heel) limited to open camp, Bour won't be invited to major-league spring training and will report to minor-league camp April 1, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

  • Bour signed a contract to play for the Hanshin Tigers in Japan on Thursday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. Bour struggled at the plate last season with just a .172/.259/.364 slash line, so it was unlikely that he would gain a spot on a major-league roster in 2020. The 31-year-old will get a chance to work in Japan, though it wouldn't be out of the question to see him return to the United States at some point if he can rediscover his potential.
