Giants released INF Tony Abreu.

Abreu had a shot to make the team this spring with Marco Scutaro sidelined, but the infielder hit just .179/.220/.179 in Cactus League play. He'll likely catch on as infield depth elsewhere.
Mar 23 - 1:39 PM

Giants avoided arbitration with INF Tony Abreu by agreeing to a one-year, $745,000 contract.

It was Abreu's first season of arbitration eligibility. The veteran infielder batted .268/.301/.442 with a pair of homers over 53 games for the Giants in 2013 and will serve as a backup at second and third base in 2014.
Jan 17 - 11:38 AM

Giants activated INF Tony Abreu from the 15-day disabled list.

Abreu has been sidelined since late July with bursitis in his left knee. The defensive-minded 28-year-old has slashed .266/.306/.418 with a homer and seven RBI in 79 at-bats for the Giants this season.

Giants placed INF Tony Abreu on the 15-day disabled list with a left knee bursitis.

Tony Abreu went 2-for-5 with a double and a home run in the Giants' loss to the Reds on Wednesday.

Abreu now has seven doubles to go with his first home run on the year. Abreu is hitting .326 in 46 at-bats but doesn't have a home on the infield as it stands, limiting whatever fantasy value the journeyman might have.

Making his first start in place of the injured Marco Scutaro, Tony Abreu went 3-for-5 with three runs scored in Wednesday's loss to the Pirates.

Abreu also had a double in Tuesday's game. Scutaro could possibly be out for a while, and Abreu has surely earned more start with tonight's showing. It's possible he could develop some NL-only value.

Giants activated INF Tony Abreu from the 60-day disabled list.

Abreu has been sidelined since mid-February because of a severely strained quadriceps muscle. He will serve as a utility infielder for the Giants going forward and is doubtful to carry any sort of fantasy value.

Giants transferred INF Tony Abreu from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

Tony Abreu (quad) will make his spring debut Monday against the Rangers.

Abreu has been sidelined the last month with a strained quad, but he's finally ready to return. Assuming he can avoid setbacks, he'll be a strong candidate for a utility role with the Giants.
