Former SF Giants top prospect Kyle Crick DFA’d by Pirates

The Pittsburgh Pirates made a minor trade on Monday with the Los Angeles Angels, acquiring left-handed pitcher Dillon Peters from the Los Angeles Angels for cash considerations. To create a space for Peters on their 40-man roster, the Pirates designated right-handed pitcher Kyle Crick for assignment. Originally selected by the SF Giants in the first supplemental round of the 2011 MLB draft out of Sherman High School (TX), Crick was sent to Pittsburgh as part of the Andrew McCutchen trade package.

Posey homered to left in his first at-bat in more than two weeks, helping the Giants take an early lead at Dodger Stadium and ultimately win the first game of a huge four-game series.

Giants' 'bang-for-your-buck' bullpen has been key to success

They were a long way from being needed, so the broadcast crew spent some time trying to figure out what they could have been discussing. Were they strategizing? Going over scouting reports?

SF Giants: Offense is excelling in important metric

With a 59-34 record, the SF Giants have the best winning percentage in MLB. There are plenty of reasons for this, but they are excelling in a key metric that tends to correlate with a team’s overall record. In fact, they are excelling in just about every facet of the game. However, there’s one category that has stood out among the rest since president of baseball operations Farhan Zaidi joined the organization in the winter of 2018.

SF Giants prospect R.J. Dabovich continues on path to Oracle Park

The SF Giants drafted R.J. Dabovich just over a year ago, but the right-handed pitcher is already on a fast track to the major leagues. After starting the season at High-A with the Eugene Emeralds, the fourth-round pick out of Arizona State quickly laid waste to the competition. Dabovich allowed just eight baserunners across 12.2 innings pitched before he was promoted to the Richmond Flying Squirrels at Double-A. He’s dealt with a couple of difficult outings but has generally looked comfortable as their closer.

SF Giants rumors: Front office tied to Marlins OF Starling Marte

The SF Giants are “one of the key teams to watch” in trade sweepstakes for Miami Marlins outfielder Starling Marte, according to a report by Craig Mish of the Miami Herald. Marte will be a free agent at the end of the 2021 season, but the Marlins had hoped to sign him to a contract extension. However, per Mish’s reporting, the two sides were unable to come to an agreement, which will likely lead Miami’s front office to move Marte by the MLB trade deadline on July 31st.

SF Giants add dominant Sacramento reliever to MLB roster

The SF Giants made an adjustment to their bullpen heading into the second half of the season, purchasing the contract of right-handed pitcher Jay Jackson from Triple-A and adding him to their MLB roster.

In fact, our own Jeff Young pondered if Jackson would soon be promoted to the big leagues.
