  Pat The Bat Burrell The San Francisco Giants have released relief pitcher Ramon Ortiz, says Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle (via twitter). Henry Schulman also tells us that Pat Burrell has signed on as a scout for the Giants. Burrell will revisit the coaching or instructional position at a later time. GM Brian Sabean thinks a scout role is better for Burrell at this time. “They felt that since I’m close to playing I should step away from it for a while,” been around for a long time. He knows what’s best,” said Burrell. Jayson Stark of ESPN said (via twitter) over the weekend that the Giants are telling teams that they’re shopping Ryan Theriot and Mike Fontenot.
