Giants Trade Chris Heston to the Mariners

Chris Heston

After the San Francisco Giants signed one of the elite premier closers in the game Mark Melancon, they had to figure out who would be the odd man out on the 40-man roster. The Giants decided that they would be willing to part ways with pitcher Chris Heston. Let’s not forget that Heston tossed a no-hitter for the Giants a little over a year ago. Which is probably why they were able to trade him last night to the Seattle Mariners for a “Player to be Named Later”.

It was just his 13th career start when Heston pitched the game of his life against the New York Mets. Thank you Chris for everything that you’ve done in a Giants uniform and we wish you the best of luck in Seattle!
