Kyle Jensen: Dropped by Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jansen was released by the Giants on Tuesday, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Jensen was hitting just .196/.251/.317 across 52 games with Triple-A Sacramento prior to being cut loose. The 30-year-old will now look to latch on elsewhere as organizational depth.

Giants' Kyle Jensen: Cut from major-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jensen was moved from the Giants' spring training and assigned to minor-league camp Monday, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Jensen made plenty of plate appearances off the bench this spring, as he went 8-for-26 (.308) and drew 10 walks over 21 games. Of his eight hits, five were home runs. However, Jensen last appeared in the majors in 2016 as a member of the Diamondbacks, appearing in 17 games and hitting .194 with a .717 OPS. He'll likely provide organizational depth at Triple-A Sacramento this season.

Giants' Kyle Jensen: Cranks fifth spring homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jensen went deep for the fifth time this spring with a solo home run in his only at-bat as a pinch hitter in Monday's loss to the Rangers.

The corner outfielder has opened eyes with a league-high five homers in just 11 at-bats this spring. The low number of at-bats can be attributed to his primary usage off the bench (as he was used Monday), and his success is a testament to the low level of pitching he has been facing late in these exhibition contests. Don't overreact to these impressive numbers from a free-swinging power hitter. Barring a couple of serious injuries to the Giants' current starting position players, Jensen's best-case-scenario would be playing his way into a bench role on the 25-man roster.

Giants' Kyle Jensen: Inks minors pact with San Francisco
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants signed Jensen to a minor-league contract Tuesday, Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reports.

The outfielder/first baseman spent the 2017 campaign in the Nippon Professional Baseball league with the Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks, appearing in only six games before the Japanese club released him. The 29-year-old Jensen previously saw time in the majors with the Diamondbacks in 2016, but will likely have to prove himself in the high minors before receiving another cup of coffee in the big leagues.

Kyle Jensen: Headed to Japan
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jensen's rights were sold to the Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks of Japan on Tuesday.

The 28-year-old utility man finally broke through to the majors in 2016 after spending seven-plus years toiling in the minors. This move to Japan gives him a more stable situation, as he would have likely spent all or most of 2017 in the minors if he stayed stateside.

Diamondbacks' Kyle Jensen: Bashes second homer since promotion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jensen went 1-for-3 with a homer, a walk and two runs against the Dodgers on Thursday.

He's homered twice along with a pair of singles in 14 at-bats since being called up. Jensen racked up some eye-popping stats in Triple-A -- chiefly his 30 homers and 120 RBI -- but as a 28-year-old who strikes out prolifically, starts only rarely, and had spent his entire career in the minors until this month, he doesn't merit much fantasy interest.

Diamondbacks' Kyle Jensen: Contract selected by D-Backs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jensen's contract was selected from Triple-A Reno on Saturday.

The 28-year-old journeyman outfielder will get his first career call to the big leagues this September. He took advantage of the favorable hitting conditions in the Pacific Coast League, hitting .289/.350/.546 with 30 homers and 120 RBI with Reno this year. His 30.5 percent K-rate and .373 BABIP suggest that those numbers are fairly irrelevant, with regards to how he will perform against big league pitching. Look for him to play sparingly down the stretch, primarily serving as a strong option off the bench against lefties.

Diamondbacks' Kyle Jensen: Signs with Diamondbacks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jensen signed with the Diamondbacks on Monday, Matt Eddy of Baseball America reports.

Jensen has never appeared in the majors, but he has flashed intriguing power in the minors, slugging 20 homers in 2015 and hitting 27 the year before. He'll likely start the season in the minors and will serve as outfield depth for the big league club.
