Giants designated RHP Chris Heston for assignment.

Chris Heston's miserable spring continued on Friday as he was torched for five runs on five hits in just four innings of work against the Rockies.

Heston also walked three while striking out two on the afternoon. He's the proud owner of a 9.28 ERA, 1.69 WHIP and 5/4 K/BB ratio through 10 2/3 innings this spring. The 24-year-old posted gaudy numbers at the Double-A level in 2012, but isn't close to securing a spot in the Giants rotation any time soon.
