The Giants have added OF Gary Brown, RHP Kendry Flores, 3B Adam Duvall and RHP Hunter Strickland to the 40-man roster and have designated RHP Guillermo Moscoso for assignment. Adding these players to the 40-man roster guarantees they won’t be taken in December’s Rule 5 Draft.
Gary Brown, OF, has a .279 BA in the Minors but only a .233 at AAA Fresno in the 2013 season.
Kendry Flores, RHP, is 27-18 with a 3.29 ERA in the Minors, most recently in Class A Augusta.
Adam Duvall, 3B, has a .263 BA in the Minors with a .252 at AA Richmond in the 2013 season.
Hunter Strickland, RHP, is 21-20 with a 3.80 ERA in the Minors. He underwent Tommy John surgery in late May 2013 and was designated for assignment in July. The Giants ultimately released him and then worked out a new minor league contract in August.
