SF Giants Rumors: Another Tough Loss, Giants Ink Jeff Francoeur

Posted on July 9th, 2013 by admin in SF Giants Rumors

JeffFrancoeurKCLast night was a game the San Francisco Giants desperately needed. Tim Lincecum was dealing, and struck out 11 Mets in his 7 innings of work. They went on to lose the game in the 16th inning. They had plenty of chances to score, and base-runners all over the place. They just weren’t able to cash in with a clutch hit. They’ve now lost 12 of their last 14 games, and are 6.5 games back in the NL West.

The pitching was there last night and the bullpen also tossed 9 good innings as well. It’s clear that the Giants can use some help with the bats right now.

Ken Rosenthal of FoxSports.com reported (via Twitter) this morning that the Giants have signed (minor league deal) outfielder Jeff Francoeur. The 29-year-old Francoeur was recently released by the Royals after hitting .208 with 3 homers in 59 games this season. He will report to the Fresno Grizzlies.

Francoeur is a career .264 hitter and averages 19 homers a year. He should still have a lot of juice in his tank since he’s only 29-years-old. Let’s hope a change of scenery is all he needs to get back on track!
