Ex-Giant Eric Surkamp Claimed by Chicago White Sox

When the San Francisco Giants designated Eric Surkamp for assignment to make room for Michael Morse on the 40-man roster, they were hoping he could sneak by the radar of other teams, so that the Giants could bring him back to their farm system. And they were close. But you know what they say about close . . . something about horseshoes and dangerous explosives. Surkamp...

SF Giants DFA Eric Surkamp

We recently talked about how the San Francisco Giants are selling Brett Pill’s contract to a foreign ball club. The talks began when the team signed Michael Morse, and needed to clear up space on the 40-man roster. So Morse is taking Pill’s place, right? Wrong. Since Pill has not yet reached an agreement with the Kia Tigers of the Korean Baseball League, the Giants...
