Top Giants News

  • Giants' Chris Stratton: Gets to start Cactus League opener

    Stratton will start the Giants' Cactus League opener against the Angels on Saturday, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    The right-hander regressed hard in 2018, as his ERA ballooned to a lofty 5.09 mark and he only mustered a 7.0 K/9. However, even following veteran additions to the pitching staff, Stratton has a decent chance to crack the Opening Day roster either as a starter or as a long reliever simply because he is out of minor-league options. Clarity regarding his role for 2019 will likely come as the Giants' roster takes shape over the course of spring training.

  • Giants' Buster Posey: Easing into game action at catcher

    Posey isn't expected to play catcher in a spring training game until March 1, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

    Relatively speaking, Posey has been one of the more durable catchers in baseball, logging at least 100 games behind the plate each year from 2012 through 2016, as well as 99 in 2017. However, following hip surgery in August, the Giants are really trying to ease their star catcher back into action. Posey could see time at designated hitter and first base before March 1, but his catching workload is apparently being monitored closely. He is still expected to be fully ready for Opening Day.

  • Giants' Fernando Abad: Lands with Giants on minors deal

    Abad (suspension) signed a minor-league deal with the Giants on Wednesday, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.

    The veteran lefty didn't pitch in the big leagues last season but owns a 3.65 ERA across eight major-league seasons. He'll be ineligible to pitch until midseason while serving an 80-game suspension after testing positive for Stanozolol.

  • Giants' Johnny Cueto: Throws from 45 feet

    Cueto threw from 45 feet Monday, his first time throwing since undergoing Tommy John surgery in August, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

    Tommy John surgery carries a recovery time of at least one year, leaving Cueto with an outside chance at best to return in some capacity late in the season. He seems to be making the expected progress so far, but the right-hander is still a long ways off.

  • Giants' Cameron Maybin: Inks NRI deal with San Francisco

    Maybin agreed to a minor-league contract with the Giants on Sunday that includes an invitation to spring training, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.

    The veteran outfielder split 2018 between the Marlins and Mariners, posting a .249/.326/.336 slash line with four home runs and 10 stolen bases. He isn't what he used to be at the plate, but Maybin can still run well if his 33 steals in 2017 are any indication. He figures to be a legitimate contender for one of the Giants' outfield spots given the dearth of experienced options in camp.

  • Giants' Steven Duggar: Tabbed for top-two lineup spot

    Duggar is expected to hit first or second for the Giants this season, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    The decision to give a key spot to Duggar says as much about the state of the Giants' lineup as it does about Duggar himself. The 25-year-old does have a theoretically interesting bat, with scouting reports showing potential for both contact and power, and he has the speed of a classic leadoff hitter. He didn't do much in his first taste of the big leagues last season though, hitting an uninspiring .255/.303/.390 in 41 games. That line was propped up by a .354 BABIP, so any skills growth could be offset by a regression in his batted-ball luck. Still, the extra at-bats that come from hitting at the top of the order would provide a small bump to Duggar's fantasy value.

  • Giants' Ryder Jones: Hits for first time since surgery

    Jones took batting practice Friday for the first time since September knee surgery, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    Jones dislocated his patella after coming to the plate just eight times last season. He appears to be on track to return by Opening Day, though his odds of breaking camp in the big leagues are low.

  • Giants' Yangervis Solarte: Reaches deal with Giants

    Solarte signed a minor-league contract with the Giants on Friday, Robert Murray of The Athletic reports.

    The Blue Jays declined to tender Solarte a contract in November, making him a free agent after the worst offensive performance of his major-league career with a .226/.277/.378 slash line. The 31-year-old played all four infield spots with Toronto last season and is likely to battle with the likes of Pablo Sandoval for a utility role in San Francisco. According to Jon Heyman of FancredSports.com, Solarte will receive $1.75 million, plus additional incentives, if he sticks in the majors.

  • Giants' Johnny Cueto: Nearing return to throwing

    Cueto (elbow) will begin playing catch next week, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.

    The veteran hurler underwent Tommy John surgery in August of 2018, but it seems like he's making good progress in his rehab program. Cueto is still on track to miss most if not all of the 2019 season, though his timetable for return will likely become clearer once he gets back onto the mound.

  • Giants' Johnny Cueto: Shifts to 60-day injured list

    Cueto (elbow) was placed on the 60-day injured list Wednesday.

    The Giants needed a 40-man roster spot for new acquisition Trevor Gott, and Cueto was the easy choice to make room. The veteran starter won't be available until the end of 2019 at the earliest after undergoing Tommy John surgery in August, so he'll simply move to the 60-day injured list to give San Francisco more roster flexibility for the beginning of the season.

  • Giants' Trevor Gott: Dealt to Giants

    Gott was traded to the Giants on Wednesday in exchange for cash considerations, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

    The 26-year-old was designated for assignment by the Nationals earlier in the month, but the Giants decided to pounce on him before he cleared waivers. Gott doesn't possess a ton of fantasy upside given the middling 6.1 career K/9, not to mention his 4.64 career ERA. However, he is out of minor-league options, so that could give him a leg up on other candidates for middle-relief work to start the season.

  • Giants' Josh Osich: Designated for assignment

    Osich was designated for assignment by the Giants on Tuesday, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.

    Jose Lopez, who was claimed off waivers Tuesday, will take Osich's place on the Giants' 40-man roster. Osich spent most of his time in 2018 with Triple-A Sacramento, notching a 4.96 ERA and 1.63 WHIP in 45.1 innings. He also made 12 appearances for the big club, but allowed 11 earned runs on 20 hits across 12.0 innings in those appearances.

  • Giants' Jose Lopez: Scooped by Giants

    Lopez was claimed off waivers by the Giants on Tuesday, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.

    Lopez will trade 40-man spots with Josh Osich, who was designated for assignment in a corresponding move. The right-hander compiled a 4.47 ERA and 1.30 WHIP across 26 starts with Triple-A Louisville in 2018. Lopez will likely open the year on San Francisco's farm.
