Eric Surkamp Designated For Assignment

By Denise Walos

Eric Surkamp was designated for assignment today to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for new left fielder Michael Morse.

Surkamp is 2-3 with a 7.26 ERA in the big leagues but has dominated in the minors in 2013 after recovering from Tommy John surgery in 2012.

The left-hander was 7-1 with a 2.78 ERA in AAA Fresno in 2013. In five seasons in MiLB he is 33-14 with a 2.84 ERA. I would be surprised if another team didn’t pick him up this time around.

Surkamp was originally drafted by the San Francisco Giants in the sixth round of the 2008 Major League Baseball Draft. Here was a Top Prospect video the Giants posted 2/2/2012.
