Couple of roster moves are coming down the pipe. Kensuke Tanaka is apparetnly in San Francisco, as reported by Andrew Baggarly. He’s an infielder who has been playing second base, but apparently will be playing Left Field, too. He’s hitting .330 this season (.339 against Righties / .279 against Lefties).
I can only speculate at this point, but Tony Abreu may be heading back to Fresno in his place, unless they bothered to bring Nick Noonan up for a day only to send him right back. Cole Gillespie was DFA’d, according to Pavlovic. Phew, I can’t keep up with all of this.
Pending roster moves for Giants. Kensuke Tanaka is here.

Mike Kickham is also back, as reported by Henry Schulman. Hector Sanchez heading to the DL.
Kickham is here too. If he's activated someone has to be DL-bound.

Cole Gillespie DFA'd, Tanaka added from Triple-A. Kickham recalled. Hector Sanchez to DL. Got all that?
