Guillermo Moscoso has agreed to a contract with Nippon Professional Baseball's Yokohama Bay Stars.
Moscoso was cut loose by the Giants in November after posting a rough 5.10 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 31/21 K/BB ratio across 30 innings of work in 2013. The exact financial terms of his deal with Yokohama have not been disclosed. It's presumably a one-year contract. Thu, Dec 26, 2013 11:34:00 AM

Guillermo Moscoso has elected free agency.

The 30-year-old right-hander was designated for assignment on Wednesday and refused an assignment to the minor leagues. He appeared in 13 games with the Giants in 2013, posting a 5.10 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 31/21 K/BB ratio over 30 innings of work. With the ability to start and work in relief, there should be suitors willing to let him compete for a roster spot.

Giants designated RHP Guillermo Moscoso for assignment.

The Giants needed to clear room on their 40-man roster, and Moscoso became a victim of the numbers crunch. The right-hander had a 5.10 ERA in 30 innings of work, including two starts, this season. The 30-year-old must now pass through waivers to remain with the club.

Guillermo Moscoso struggled in his spot start against the Padres in Sunday's season finale, giving up five runs on four hits and four walks in only 4 1/3 innings.

The 29-year-old right-hander, who had appeared almost exclusively out of the bullpen this season, got the call in place of Matt Cain. Nick Hundley tagged him for a solo shot in the third inning, but most of the damage came after he departed in the fifth as all three of his inherited runners rode home on Jedd Gyorko's grand slam. He finishes the season with an uninspiring 5.10 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 31/21 K/BB ratio in 30 innings of work.

Guillermo Moscoso will start for the Giants in Sunday's season finale against the Padres.

He'll be working in the place of Matt Cain who has been shut down for the remainder of the season. The 29-year-old right-hander has appeared primarily out of the Giants bullpen this season, compiling a 4.21 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 27/17 K/BB ratio over 25 2/3 innings. He makes for a decent streaming option if you're scraping the bottom of the barrel in mixed leagues.

Guillermo Moscoso surrendered three runs on four hits over 4 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the Rays on Sunday.

He struck out three, walked four and allowed a two-run homer to Wil Myers in the first inning. Moscoso, who took the rotation spot of Barry Zito, entered the game with a 4.19 ERA over 24 starts and 34 relief appearances in the majors. He's not worth the hassle in fantasy.

Guillermo Moscoso will start Sunday against the Rays.

He'll take the rotation spot of Barry Zito, who has been moved to the bullpen. Moscoso, who was acquired from the Cubs last week, owns a 4.19 ERA over 24 starts and 34 relief appearances in the majors. He's not to be trusted in fantasy leagues.

Giants acquired RHP Guillermo Moscoso from the Cubs for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

Cubs claimed RHP Guillermo Moscoso off waivers from the Blue Jays.

Moscoso had an ugly 6.12 ERA over 50 innings with the Rockies this season, but he could make the Cubs' Opening Day roster as a reliever. The 29-year-old had a 3.38 ERA in 128 innings with the A's in 2011.

Blue Jays claimed RHP Guillermo Moscoso off waivers from the Royals.

Moscoso, 29, has bounced around in recent years, pitching for the A's in 2011 before landing with the Rockies last year. The Royals claimed him off waivers in November but released him Wednesday. In 50 innings last year, the right-hander had a hideous 6.12 ERA.

Royals claimed RHP Guillermo Moscoso off waivers from the Rockies.

Moscoso posted an ugly 6.12 ERA over 50 innings for the Rockies this season but did have a 47/19 K/BB ratio. It's possible he could get a chance to compete for a rotation spot given the Royals' lack of depth.

Rockies recalled RHP Guillermo Moscoso from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Moscoso has posted a brutal 7.53 ERA and 1.82 WHIP over 34 2/3 innings this season in the major leagues. He does offer some flexibility for the Rockies, though, as he can be utilized as a starter or reliever.
