Giants send Tyler Colvin to Triple-A, release Dan Uggla

getty images Outfielder Tyler Colvin has been sent to Triple-A Fresno by the San Francisco Giants. Colvin, 28, is hitting just .223/.268/.381 this season with two home runs and 18 RBI.

Giants News: San Francisco releases Dan Uggla, Tyler Colvin

Many understood why the San Francisco Giants signed Dan Uggla. It was a low risk move that could have paid huge dividends for them. With the team being in desperate need of a second baseman, giving Uggla a shot was a smart thing to do.In about a week with the team, Uggla went 0-11 with six strikeouts, and three errors. In that short amount of time, the Giants had seen enough.#452907368...

Madison Bumgarner started strong, sitting down six straight Athletics, but trouble arose in the third inning, as a mixup in communication between Joe Panik and Hunter Pence...

Giants Avoid Sweep Behind Hudson’s Brilliant Start

Tim Hudson was brilliant once again as San Francisco avoided being swept for the first time all year and (finally!) defeated the Washington Nationals 7-1. The Giants got on the board first for the first time all series when Michael Morse led off the bottom of the second with a single, and Tyler Colvin tripled him home. Brandon Crawford followed it up with an RBI groundout, making...

“Vintage Timmy,” Plus Colvin Puts One In The Cove In Giants 4-2 Win Over Braves

With the exception of a fifth inning mistake to BJ Upton that landed in the left field bleachers, Lincecum was on top of his command on Monday night. “It was vintage Timmy, the way he had...

SF Giants Rumors: Barry Bonds Giants Instructor, Giants Sign Tyler Colvin

The Home Run King Barry Bonds is going to be in Scottsdale March 9-17 as an instructor for the San Francisco Giants. Bonds have never officially retired, but I would say showing up as a special instructor means you’re not going to get penciled in the Spring Training lineup. With that said, you sure are missed Barry!   The 49 year-old Bonds last played in September 2007. That...

Orioles concerned with Tyler Colvin's physical, similar to Grant Balfour situation

As a standard practice, when a player signs with or gets traded to a new team, he has a physical performed. Normally, no problems arise, and the transaction becomes official.
