John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle says (via twitter) the San Francisco Giants have signed catcher Eli Whiteside to a major league deal.
Whiteside will make $600K if he’s on the major league roster and $175K if he’s in the minors. It’s unknown where Whiteside will start the season with Buster Posey back, Hector Sanchez knocking on the door and Chris Stewart trying to make the squad.
Ex-Giant shortstop Omar Vizquel says he plans to play in 2012, and tells fans (via twitter) he would sign with the Giants if they offered a one-year deal.
The Giants are not going to sign Vizquel. He just answered a question from a fan, and said he would sign if they offered a 1-year deal. They’re not interested in bringing him back at this point in his career.
What’s your thoughts on Whiteside signing with the Giants and Vizquel’s tweet?
