Pat Burrell To Potentially Rejoin San Francisco Giants – Sort Of

We’ve known for a while that the Giants offered Pat Burrell a “baseball related job” and it appears The Machine might just be ready to take them up on it – at least for a short period of time.

Henry Schulman is reporting that Burrell could make his way down to Scottsdale to take part in Spring festivities as an instructor:

Pat Burrell, one of the heroes from the Giants’ 2010 championship run, might join a luminous list of former players who visit spring training for a week or two of special coaching.

Manager Bruce Bochy just told me that he and general manager Brian Sabean talked to Burrell this winter about a post-retirement role in the organization, and that could include a stint here in Scottsdale doing the kind of work that Will Clark (currently here), Robb Nen and Shawon Dunston do.

“Brian and I will get together and see what makes sense for both sides,” Bochy said. “We think a lot of Pat.”

No word on what rookies or young players will be subjected to a late night visit from a special, leather bound gimp, but I have a feeling if you resemble John Stamos – you may want to sleep with the lights on.
