Giants announce 25-man roster, stick with 13 pitchers


The San Francisco Giants announced their 25-man roster this afternoon, electing to stick with 13 pitchers—one more than usual—and Spring Training standout Matt Duffy.

Ehire Adrianza will be designated for assignment, losing out to Duffy for San Francisco’s last infield spot. The 25-year-old doesn’t have any options left, meaning other teams will have a chance to claim him off waivers.

Jean Machi and George Kontos give the Giants 13 total pitchers, a number that will likely go back down to 12 when Hunter Pence returns from the disabled list in late April or early May.

The entire roster breakdown is as follows:

    Though San Francisco is only carrying four natural outfielders going into the season, there’s a good chance that Brandon Belt or Duffy sees some action in left.

    In other news, recently promoted Giants general manager Bobby Evans said on MLB Network radio that Ryan Vogelsong could replace a struggling Jake Peavy in Arizona on Tuesday. The team could even go with six starters the first time through to let Peavy get a couple more days off.

    Evans also stated that they will not be signing anyone else in the near future, including former San Francisco postseason hero Cody Ross, who was released by the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

    The Giants and Diamondbacks square off Monday night at 7:10 p.m. PST, with Madison Bumgarner and Josh Collmenter taking the hill for their respective ball clubs.
