Discussion in 'San Francisco Giants' started by calsnowskier, Jul 11, 2013.
Adames and Green removed from the roster.
Get ready, here comes some more FZ approved transactions:
Mike Gerber and Ricardo Pinto dfa'd. Trevor Oaks, Keon Wong and Rico Garcia claimed off waivers.
Gerber was fantastic at AAA, but looked completely overwhelmed at the MLB level.
Should we start some kind of bet on how long each of the 3 new guys last before they are dfa'd for another claim?
Wong and Garcia are pretty interesting.
I think it's conceivable that Wong and Dubon could platoon at 2nd base. Wong can also play at 3rd and the OF.
Wong might make Longo expendable.
Maybe... but I wouldn't go that far. It would more than likely turn into a Connor Joe scenario. Now if they did that and signed someone like Howie Kendrick, then I would be on board. You could mix-and-match all over the infield.
(That being said, I don't expect them to sign Howie Kendrick - why would he want to come here? Just spit-balling names)
Maybe I over-spoke. I didn’t mean that he would equate to Longo, but rather fill the slot post-trade.
Gerber is now a free agent and Pinto is headed to Korea - Giants' Mike Gerber Elects Free Agency; Ricardo Pinto To Sign With KBO Club
Will Smith signed a 3 year deal with the Braves
Both he and Bumgarner rejected their QOs, giving the Giants two extra picks at the end of the 2nd round.
Interestingly enough, the Braves may be looking at Smith as the setup guy for Melancon. Weird. I would have thought they'd go the other way around.
Vogt signs with Arizona
Damn, not only do we lose him but he goes to a rival.
So, did the A's change their mind on him, not act fast enough or just got outbid?
The Arizona Diamondbacks agreed to sign two-time All-Star catcher Stephen Vogt to a one-year, $3 million contract with a vesting option for 2021, multiple media outlets reported Tuesday. The value of the deal reportedly could rise to $7 million based on the vesting clause, according to The Athletic.
Reports: D-backs agree to sign C Vogt to one-year deal
Peralta and Dickerson avoid arbitration by signing 1-year deals.
Meanwhile, Anderson, Garcia, Pillar and Rickard were all non-tendered. I can only assume that FZ and company thought that they could more easily pass Anderson and Garcia off the 40 man roster, and retain them, through the non-tender process than the waiver process.
This is a new regime indeed. Pillar would have been given a 3-year deal with the old FO
Anderson back in the fold. I'm glad, I think he could be a nice bounce back.
