Gerber was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Tuesday, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Gerber went 1-for-15 at the dish in four games after having his contract selected, so he'll head back to the minor leagues after getting a taste of the majors.
Gerber will start in left field and bat eighth Monday against the Reds, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Gerber will make his fourth start in as many games since joining the Giants, but he'll drop precipitously in the order after batting second in each of the prior three games. The 26-year-old has struck out in six of his 12 plate appearances to date and has recorded only one hit. Even with Gerardo Parra out of the mix, Gerber may not have a long leash in an everyday role with the big club, especially with Mac Williamson mashing at Triple-A Sacramento and angling for a promotion.
Gerber started in left field and batted second Sunday, going 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in a 6-5 win over the Reds.
Gerber has started all three games in left field since being called up following Gerardo Parra's designation for assignment on May 3. The 26-year-old's success with Triple-A Sacramento (.357/.402/.655) has not carried over to the majors, as he has gone just 1-for-12 in those three starts. Gerber remains on the strong side of a platoon in left field with Tyler Austin, but he could lose playing time to his platoon mate or another outfield option in the minors if he doesn't start stringing some hits together.
Gerber's contract was purchased from Triple-A Sacramento on Friday.
Gerber looks set for an important role with the Giants, as he'll head straight into the second spot in the order while starting in left field Friday against the Reds, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports. Gerardo Parra was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.
Gerber will be called up to the big leagues soon, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
The promotion is yet to be officially announced but could come prior to Friday's game against the Reds. Gerber hit just .095/.170/.119 in his 18-game debut for the Tigers last season but is hitting .357/.402/.655 with six homers in 21 games for Triple-A Sacramento.
Gerber was reassigned to minor-league camp Monday, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Gerber was a non-roster invitee to spring training, but had fared well at the plate going 8-for-19 with a double and a triple. He was always considered a long shot to make the Opening Day roster, however. The 26-year-old has just 47 career plate appearances at the big-league level.
Gerber cleared waivers Wednesday and was outrighted to Triple-A Sacramento, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.
Gerber's 4-for-42 showing in his big-league debut last season was not promising enough for another team to give him a roster spot. He could be called upon this season should the Giants suffer an injury crisis in the outfield but shouldn't be expected to make a significant impact.
Gerber was designated for assignment by the Giants on Wednesday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Gerber was claimed off waivers from Detroit in December but didn't last the offseason on the Giants' 40-man roster. He was dropped to make room for new signee Drew Pomeranz. The 26-year-old got his first taste of big-league action with the Tigers last year but failed to impress, going just 4-for-42 at the plate.
Gerber was claimed off waivers by the Giants on Monday.
Gerber got his first taste of big-league action with the Tigers last season but hit a miserable .095/.170/.119 in 47 plate appearances, striking out 44.7 percent of the time. He hit better but not particularly well in 74 games for Triple-A Toledo, recording a .213/.277/.411 line with a 32.6 percent strikeout rate. If he can get back to the form he showed in previous seasons, posting a wRC+ of at least 116 at every minor-league stop through 2017, he could at least fight for a bench spot in San Francisco.
Gerber was demoted to Triple-A Toledo on Sunday.
Gerber has collected just four hits in 42 at-bats this season for the Tigers (18 games), so he'll head down to the minor leagues as JaCoby Jones (hamstring) will be activated from the disabled list Monday. Gerber figures to return to the big leagues when rosters expand Sept. 1.
Gerber is sitting for the fifth time in the Tigers' last eight games Saturday against the Twins, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.
Gerber appears to be losing playing time to Mikie Mahtook, who has now started four straight games in left field. Gerber has gone hitless in his last 10 games, so the loss of a job makes sense, though Mahtook is just 1-for-14 since getting recalled Monday, so he's not a particularly deserving candidate for a starting role either.
Gerber is out of the lineup versus the Twins on Thursday.
Gerber will take a seat for the second straight day and fourth time in the past six games as Mikie Mahtook gets another start in left field. Since earning a promotion to the big leagues near the end of July, Gerber has gone 4-for-28 (.143 average) with two RBI and 12 strikeouts in 11 games.
Gerber is out of the lineup versus the White Sox on Wednesday, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.
Gerber will retreat to the bench after going 0-for-3 with three strikeouts during Tuesday's game. In his place, Mikie Mahtook will man left field and bat seventh.
Gerber is not in the lineup Monday against the White Sox, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.
Gerber is hitting just .160/.267/.200 across nine games since earning a promotion to the majors at the end of July, so he'll head to the bench for the second time in three games. Mikie Mahtook, Victor Reyes and Nick Castellanos will man the Tigers' outfield from left to right in this one.
Gerber is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Twins, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.
Gerber started the last six games for the Tigers -- covering all three outfield spots -- but is only 3-for-18 with four walks in 23 plate appearances over that span. The 26-year-old appears to have a prime opportunity to earn a full-time role in the Tigers' outfield, but Victor Reyes will start in left field against Kyle Gibson and the Twins on Saturday.
Gerber will start in right field and lead off Sunday against the Athletics, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.
Gerber will draw his second consecutive start and move up from the No. 9 spot in the order to the table-setting role with normal leadoff man JaCoby Jones (back) on the bench. Gerber likely will shift back down in the order once Jones is healthy, but he could have a decent shot at retaining a full-time role in the outfield with rookie Victor Reyes (.222/.235/.274 slash line in 119 plate appearances) not making much of an impact this season.
Gerber was called up from Triple-A Toledo on Tuesday.
Gerber will join the big-league team after Leonys Martin was traded to Cleveland on Tuesday morning. Through 68 games with Toledo this year, Gerber has hit just .209/.276/.399 with 12 home runs, 31 RBI and two stolen bases. Look for him to serve as a reserve outfielder during his time with Detroit.
Gerber (shoulder) has returned to health and hit his fourth double of the season with Triple-A Toledo on Sunday, Emily Waldon of The Athletic Detroit reports.
Gerber landed on the disabled list May 5 with a shoulder injury, but he appears to be fully healthy after taking three weeks to recover. The 25-year-old outfielder is batting a dismal .191 with two home runs and seven RBI in 16 games at Triple-A this season.
Gerber (shoulder) was placed on the minor-league disabled list Saturday, John Wagner of The Toledo Blade reports.
Gerber was forced to miss a couple games with a shoulder injury earlier this week, and it looks like he aggravated the issue during Friday's game against Durham. The club has yet to release any specific information on his status, but Gerber will be eligible to return from the DL next Saturday.
Gerber (shoulder) is batting second and serving as designated hitter for Friday's Triple-A game against Durham.
Gerber exited Monday's minor-league game with a shoulder injury, and his return to the lineup Friday appears to confirm it as a minor injury.
