Giants' Justin Ruggiano: Granted release Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ruggiano opted out of his minor-league deal with the Giants and will become a free agent, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Ruggiano struggled in his 63 plate appearances with the Giants this season (.217 average) and was subsequently designated for assignment in early June. The 35-year-old initially accepted his assignment to Triple-A but has ultimately decided to opt out of his deal. He'll look to pick up with another organization if possible.

Giants' Justin Ruggiano: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ruggiano was designated for assignment on Friday, Alec Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

With the promotion of Austin Slater, the Giants needed to clear a spot on the 40-man roster, and Ruggiano was the casualty. He hit .217/.238/.333 with a 17:1 K:BB in 60 at-bats prior to the demotion.

Giants' Justin Ruggiano: Joins lineup Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ruggiano is batting seventh and playing right field Thursday, Alec Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Ruggiano sneaks in a start with Christian Arroyo resting against the Cubs right-hander Eddie Butler. This year, Ruggiano has typically hit lefties (.308/.357/.308) better than righties (.214/233/.464) in his short 2017 sample size, which just about corresponds to his career trends.

Giants' Justin Ruggiano: Hits first homer of 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ruggiano went 1-for-3 with a solo home run during Saturday's win over Cincinnati.

Ruggiano just joined the Giants on May 6, and he's only started four games and made 20 plate appearances since. The 35-year-old veteran has historically been a solid contributor against left-handed pitchers (.276/.341/.527 career slash line), so he'll probably receive some starts against southpaws going forward, but barring a long-term injury to another outfielder, Ruggiano is unlikely to be an everyday player.

Giants' Justin Ruggiano: Contract purchased from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ruggiano had his contract purchased from Triple-A Sacramento on Saturday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

The Giants are wasting no time deploying him, as Ruggiano is slated to play left field and bat sixth against the Reds on Saturday. The 35-year-old appeared in just nine major-league games last season, though he batted .333 and swat two homers over 24 at-bats during the brief stint. He'll offer a strong bat against left-handed pitching for the Giants, though it's unclear how many at-bats he'll see. Drew Stubbs was designated for assignment to make room on the roster for Ruggiano.
