Giants Free Agent Francisco Peguero Signs With Baltimore

When Francisco Peguero was designated for assignment a short while ago, in order to make room for acquisitions and re-signings on the 40-man roster, many of us assumed that the Giants would have a shot at signing him to a Minor League contract.

Giants Cut Sandy Rosario and Francisco Peguero

The Giants made a little bit of a surprising roster move today, cutting reliever Sandy Rosario. On the day when the team had to tender contracts to their five arbitration-eligible players (Brandon Belt, Gregor Blanco, Joaquin Arias, Yusmeiro Petit, and Tony Abreu) in order to keep them, they chose instead to cut a non-arbitration player, letting Rosario become a free agent...

SF Giants Welcome Heath Hembree and the Seven Other September Call Ups

​Hard throwing San Francisco Giants prospect reliever Heath Hembree dropped in the Baseball America rankings prior to the start of the 2013 season. Hembree went from number three in 2012, to number seven in the Giants top 10 prospects list. This is likely due to him missing some time in 2012 with an injury. Hembree still has a power arm, and should get some strong consideration...

Lincecum only lasted 4.2 innings and allowed 7 hits, 2 ER and 2 walks. He continues to struggle to put up consecutive consistent outings. I really believe opposing teams no longer...

The National League West Race: Notes and Comments

The 2013 National League West simply will not stand still and cooperate.
