From Beer Mug Sports:

San Francisco Giants relief pitcher Brett Bochy was told that he didn't make the Major League team and was being assigned to the minors last Thursday, which is not uncommon for a 25-year-old youngster during spring training.

What is abnormal about his "cut" meeting is that it was performed by manager Bruce Bochy, who happens to be his dad, over a nice personal dinner.  Talk about preferential treatment!  Most guys just get a pink slip in their locker, but since he is the manager's kid, he got to be let down over a nice warm meal.

Ultimately, the fact that he wasn't told in the same manner as the other 21 players being cut was the only thing that upset the younger Bochy about the situation.

"He was disappointed I didn't bring him in to cut him," Bruce Bochy said according to the San Francisco Chronicle. "I may do it tomorrow just to make him feel better."

Brett Bochy gave up two runs in 2 2/3 innings over three appearances this spring. Last year at Double-A Richmond, he was 6-3 with a 2.53 ERA and 14 saves.  

"He's worked hard to get here to this point, and I was very proud of him," said the elder Bochy of his son's performance.  

Brett is expected to be assigned to Triple-A Fresno for the beginning of the 2013 season, and who knows? If an injury or two occurs, he may find himself up in the bigs pitching for his pops before long.
