Lefty Specialist Needed
With the start of the season just a little over a week away, it’s time to start getting serious. San Francisco Giants reliever Will Smith will likely have Tommy John Surgery, which is a big blow to the Giants bullpen. They’ll have to decide who’s going to step in Smith’s role as a lefty specialist.
Giants Release Beckham
The Giants have recently parted ways with infielder Gordon Beckham. It was a long-shot for him to make the team with all the guys the Giants brought into camp. There’s only so many bench roles for a lot of big name players. Beckham’s time in San Francisco was short, but he seems to have brought a very positive energy to the Giants clubhouse. We wish you the best of luck in finding a new gig with another team!
Morse Hamstring Injury
Bad news for Michael Morse and his fans. Morse suffered a hamstring injury that has his chances of making the Opening Day roster in jeopardy. Morse did say if he didn’t make the Giants then he would be calling it a career. He was having a good Spring Training, so I have a feeling we haven’t seen the last of Morse with the Giants. Maybe a few weeks in Triple-A, and then we can see him get called up to help the G-Men with some big pop off the bench.
Welcome Home Barry
If you’re a die-hard Giants fan and haven’t already heard that Barry Bonds is now part of the Giants front office… You must not watch TV or have any social media accounts. You can catch up with that news here (Barry Bonds Joins Giants Front Office As Special Advisor To CEO)! Below is a quote from Bonds on his return to the Giants organization.
I am very excited to be back home with the giants and join the team in an official capacity. San Francisco has always been my home and the Giants will always be my family. I look forward to spending time with the team, young players in the system as well as the Bay Area Community. Most of all, I want to thank all of the fans who I consider family for all of your support. Let’s go GIANTS!!!
