Ferguson was placed on the 7-day injured list Thursday due to an undisclosed injury.
It remains to be seen what type of injury Ferguson is dealing with, although it's obviously significant enough to warrant a trip to the injured list. Reliever Tanner Duncan was called up to Triple-A Round Rock in a corresponding move.
Ferguson was selected in the Rule 5 draft this offseason but was designated for assignment by the Giants on Thursday. The 26-year-old endured a rough spring training with a .111/.294/.111 slash line, four stolen bases and six walks through 20 games. Ferguson should return to Triple-A, where he slashed .305/.436/.429 over 65 games in 2019.
Ferguson was designated for assignment Thursday, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Ferguson was the 14th pick of the Rule 5 draft this offseason. He can now be claimed by another team that would also have to carry him on their major league roster. If he's not, he would likely head back to the Astros' minor-league system. Ferguson managed only three hits in 27 at-bats this spring.
A 26-year-old outfielder who looks like a Quadruple-A hitter on paper, Ferguson hit .305/.436/.429 with four home runs and six steals in 292 plate appearances in the Pacific Coast League as a member of the Astros' organization. This is a good opportunity for Ferguson, as he was unlikely to ever break through with Houston, but may get a shot in San Francisco.
