The Giants believe that prospect Steven Duggar could be a solution in center field sooner rather than later.

"We value Duggar as a guy we can look toward to in the future, so it does affect how we view addressing that need this offseason," Giants general manager Bobby Evans said on Monday. "It does give us a mindset more short term." The Giants have been mentioned as a potential trade fit for the likes of Jackie Bradley, Jr. and Billy Hamilton, but this would suggest that they might target a stopgap option instead. It's also possible they are just trying to gain some leverage by talking up Duggar. The 24-year-old was limited to 44 games in the minors this season due to elbow and hip injuries, but he's coming off an impressive performance in the Arizona Fall League. He's a .292/.384/.427 hitter in the minors.

Christian Arroyo (hand) is expected to be ready for the start of spring training.

Arroyo underwent surgery to have a pin inserted into his fractured left hand, but it's not something that's expected to linger into the new year. He figures to begin next season back in the minors.
Dec 11 - 6:39 PM

Mark Melancon (forearm) has been playing catch with no pain.

Melancon had surgery in September to repair the pronator muscle in his right forearm, but it sounds like he will enter spring training without any limitations. The closer posted a 4.50 ERA over just 32 appearances in his first year with the Giants, but he should bounce back in 2018 if he can stay healthy.

Craig Mish of Sirius XM reports that the Giants' full trade offer for Giancarlo Stanton includes prospect outfielder Heliot Ramos.

While no specifics on money are being mentioned, Mish hears that Christian Arroyo, Tyler Beede, and Chris Shaw are also a part of the offer. It's worth noting that Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle hears that Arroyo is not part of the team's proposed deal for Stanton, but there's no doubt that this offer would be much better for the Marlins than the one which previously included Joe Panik, Beede, and Shaw. Considered the Giants' top prospect, the 18-year-old Ramos batted .348/.404/.645 with six home runs and 10 stolen bases over 35 games in rookie ball this past season.
Dec 5 - 2:11 PM

Craig Mish of Sirius XM reports that prospect Christian Arroyo is believed to be in the Giants' proposed trade offer for Giancarlo Stanton.

Mish also notes that Joe Panik and Dee Gordon are not reportedly involved in the proposed deal. The 22-year-old slashed .192/.244/.304 with three homers and 14 RBI over 135 plate appearances in his first taste of big league action in 2017. It still remains to be seen which trade package the Marlins prefer and whether or not Stanton would even approve a trade to the Giants or Cardinals.
Dec 4 - 6:27 PM

Giants non-tendered RHP Albert Suarez.

The 28-year-old hurler appeared in 18 games for the Giants in 2017, compiling a 5.12 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 34/11 K/BB ratio across 31 2/3 innings. Given the plethora of teams in the market for bullpen depth, he shouldn't be out of work for long.
Dec 2 - 8:21 AM

Giants sent INF/OF Orlando Calixte outright to Triple-A Sacramento.

Calixte cleared waivers after being designated for assignment and will remain in the organization. He hit only .143/.185/.163 in 29 games for the Giants in 2017.
Nov 27 - 4:41 PM

Giants signed OF Luigi Rodriguez to a minor league contract.

Rodriguez posted a .276/.319/.497 batting line with 13 home runs and eight stolen bases in 82 games this past season for the Indians' Double-A affiliate. The 25-year-old outfielder has yet to play in a major league game and he probably won't get that opportunity with San Francisco.
Nov 23 - 2:37 PM

Giants sent RHP Daniel Slania outright to Triple-A Sacramento.

He's now off the 40-man roster. Slania held a 5.41 ERA over 25 starts between Double- and Triple-A in 2017.
Nov 20 - 9:16 PM

Giants designated INF/OF Orlando Calixte for assignment.

Calixte hit just .143/.185/.163 in 29 games for the Giants in 2017. He could clear waivers.
Nov 20 - 9:15 PM

Giants purchased the contract of C Aramis Garcia from Double-A Richmond.

Garcia, 24, hit .274/.323/.485 with 17 dingers between High- and Double-A this past season. He now can't be taken in the Rule 5 Draft.
Nov 20 - 9:13 PM

Giants purchased the contract of RHP Tyler Beede from Triple-A Sacramento.

A former first-round pick, Beede struggled in his first taste of Triple-A in 2017 with a 4.79 ERA and 83/39 K/BB ratio across 109 frames. The 24-year-old is now protected from the Rule 5 Draft.
Nov 20 - 9:11 PM

Giants purchased the contract of LHP DJ Snelten from Triple-A Sacramento.

Snelton, 25, thrived in his first year in relief with a 2.20 ERA and 71/23 K/BB ratio across 73 2/3 innings between Double- and Triple-A. He's now protected from the Rule 5 Draft.
Nov 20 - 9:09 PM

Giants purchased the contract of RHP Tyler Herb from Double-A Richmond.

Herb, 25, held a 3.09 ERA and 136/48 K/BB ratio over 163 1/3 innings at the Double-A level in 2017. He now cannot be taken in the Rule 5 Draft.
Nov 20 - 9:07 PM

Jake Peavy has been telling teams that he plans to pitch in 2018.

Peavy sat out the entire 2017 season to spend time with his four sons following a divorce from his wife. The 36-year-old right-hander had a 5.54 ERA in 118 2/3 innings with the Giants in 2016 and will likely have to settle for a non-guaranteed minor league contract or an incentive-driven one-year deal on this winter's free agent market. But he figures to get a shot somewhere.
