Black signed a minor league contract with the Giants on Friday, Rich MacLeod of MLB.com reports. Black hasn't pitched in the majors since 2014 and is coming off shoulder surgery, but Giants scouts saw him throwing 97 MPH in workouts and decided their former reliever was worth a flyer. The Giants bullpen has been ineffective thus far (4.89 ERA), and anybody who brings that kind of heat is enticing for a club in that situation.
The Mets have outrighted reliever Vic Black, who pitched for them the last two years before losing part of this season to a groin injury. Black has been relegated since his return to Triple-A Las Vegas, where he has compiled a horrid 1-6 record and 6.40 ERA with a whopping 28 walks in 32 1/3 innings.
For the first time since suffering a groin injury, Mets pitcher Vic Black was able to throw in a game at Triple-A on Tuesday, reports ESPNNewYork.com. Black was recently optioned to Triple-A after he was activated from the disabled list.
Mets right-hander Vic Black has been reinstated off the 15-day disabled list, but will remain at Triple-A Las Vegas. Black, who had been dealing with neck and back issues, has not pitched in the majors since September.

Mets reliever Vic Black is moving his rehab from Double-A Binghamton to Triple-A Las Vegas, ESPN.com reports. Black is recovering from a neck and back injury and has not pitched at all this season for the Mets. The team has not revealed an updated timeline for Black's return to the team's bullpen.
