Andrew Baggarly of CSNBayArea.com says Angel Villalona no longer has a locker in the Giants clubhouse. Which means his work visa issues won’t be resolved anytime soon.
That’s not a huge blow to the Giants organization. Villalona was not going to be in camp fighting for a roster spot on the San Francisco Giants 25 man roster. He was just going to get some AB’s in spring and then likely start his season back with the San Jose Giants. I’m sure in time Villalona’s visa issues will be resolved.
In another article, Baggarly says prospect Francisco Peguero had another surgery on his right knee in December. It’s reported as just a cleanup procedure, and Peguero expects to be cleared to play in games in the next couple of days.
Peguero is another player that Giants fans might like to keep their eye on. He’s played most of his minor league games in right field. Peguero was hitting .324 last season with the SJ Giants before getting the call up to Richmond. Between both leagues, Peguero hit a combined .312 with 7 homers, 46 RBI, and 46 runs scored.
What’s your thoughts on Villalona’s visa issues and Peguero soon to be cleared to get some spring games under his belt?
