Giants re-signed RHP Shane Loux to a minor league contract.

Loux became a minor league free agent after being outrighted off the Giants' 40-man roster in October. The 33-year-old right-hander posted a 4.97 ERA and 1.62 WHIP over 25 1/3 innings with the big club in 2012 and should function as organizational depth next season.

Giants sent RHP Shane Loux outright to Triple-A Fresno.

With Melky Cabrera reinstated from his suspension, the Giants needed to clear room on the 40-man roster and Loux was one of the unfortunate casualties. The 33-year-old right-hander posted a 4.97 ERA and 1.62 WHIP over 25 1/3 innings in relief for the Giants on the season.

Giants activated RHP Shane Loux from the 15-day disabled list.

Loux, who was placed on the DL earlier this month with neck strain, posted a 3.00 ERA and 7/0 K/BB ratio over six innings during a rehab stint with Triple-A Fresno. He has a 5.66 ERA in 14 relief appearances with the Giants this season.

Shane Loux (neck) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Fresno Tuesday.

Loux landed on the DL a week ago with a neck strain, an injury that he also dealt with back in June. He could be ready for activation before long he can avoid a setback, but it's no guarantee that he'll be added to the Giants' bullpen.

Giants placed RHP Shane Loux on the 15-day disabled list with a strained neck.

It's the same injury that cost him a month of action earlier this season. Loux has been ineffective in 14 games out of the bullpen for the Giants this season, posting a 5.66 ERA and 1.60 WHIP while striking out just nine over 20 2/3 innings. The newly acquired Jose Mijares is taking his spot in the bullpen.

Loux will return to the Giants' bullpen on Thursday after missing all of July with a strained muscle in his neck. He has a 4.50 ERA in 16 innings this season.

Giants placed RHP Shane Loux on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to June 26, with a strained neck

Loux has appeared in 11 games in a long-relief role for the Giants, compiling a 4.50 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 8/3 K/BB rate over 16 innings of work. Brad Penny has replaced him on the active roster and assumed his role in the bullpen.

Giants purchased the contract of RHP Shane Loux from Triple-A Fresno.

As expected, Loux was added to the roster once Ryan Theriot was placed on the DL. He's been impressive during his time at Triple-A, posting a 0.43 ERA and 12/3 strikeout to walk ratio over his 21 innings of work. He'll likely serve as the long man in the Giants bullpen for the time being.

Andrew Baggarly of CSNBayArea.com reports that right-hander Shane Loux has been summoned to join the Giants on Friday in Arizona.

No official roster move has been made and it's possible the Giants are just stashing him in case of injury. Loux, 32, has an 0.43 ERA and 12/3 K/BB ratio over 21 innings this season with Triple-A Fresno. He hasn't appeared in the big leagues since 2009 as a member of the Angels.

Giants reassigned RHP Shane Loux and LHP Wilmin Rodriguez to minor league camp.

Both are organizational depth arms and will function as such again in 2012.

Astros signed RHP Shane Loux to a minor league contract.

He also receives an invite to Spring Training. Loux, 30, put up a 5.86 ERA, 1.77 WHIP in 18 games (six starts) with the Angels last season, averaging exactly 2.93 K/9 and 2.93 BB/9. Someone this hittable doesn't belong in the majors and chances are the Astros will agree.

Angels sent RHP Shane Loux outright to Triple-A Salt Lake.

Loux, 30, was designated for assignment last week after posting a 5.86 ERA, 1.77 WHIP and 19/19 K/BB ratio in 58 1/3 innings for the Angels. It's doubtful he fits into the club's postseason plans.

Angels designated RHP Shane Loux for assignment.

Someone had to go from the active roster to make room for the return of Joe Saunders, and Loux was an easy choice. The 30-year-old has a 5.86 ERA, 1.77 WHIP and 19/19 K/BB ratio in 58 1/3 innings for the Angels this season.

Angels activated RHP Shane Loux from the 15-day disabled list.

He'll take the roster spot of Rich Thompson. Loux was sidelined with shoulder tendinitis in May. He is coming off seven innings of one-run ball in a rehab assignment with Triple-A Salt Lake on Wednesday. Loux had a 5.40 ERA in eight games (six starts) with the Angels this season.
