San Francisco Giants Claim Tony Abreu On Waivers


Hoping to add a bit of reserve infield depth, the San Francisco Giants claimed Tony Abreu off of waivers from the Kansas City Royals, who was designated for assignment on January 25th.

The utility man has a sub par .252/.280/.355 batting line in the majors and at 27 years of age, shouldn’t be more than a borderline MLB roster player, if he indeed finds a spot out of camp. With Ryan Theriot currently attracting interest from teams like the Indians and Rangers, the Giants were simply adding a bit of depth in the case they need it – nothing more, nothing less.
