Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle tweeted over the weekend that the San Francisco Giants have designated Minor Leaguer Chris Heston for assignment to make room for outfielder Jeff Francoeur on the 40-man roster.
Cole Gillespie was placed on waivers by the Giants last week, and he’s since been claimed by the Cubs.
Right-handed starter Chris Heston has been designated for assignment to make room on the 40-man roster for outfielder Jeff Francoeur. Heston, who was struggling mightily at the AAA level, had a 5.80 ERA and 1.61 WHIP in 19 starts.
To keep Heston in the organization, he will have to clear waivers. Something that appears likely given his struggles.
