Giants Claim Jose Castillo

According to Juan C. Rodriguez of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, the Giants claimed infielder Jose Castillo off waivers and the Marlins didn't pull him back.  I believe the Marlins can now either work out a trade with the Giants or just let them have him and his $650K salary.  One of today's writers, Alejandro, noted that Castillo is already on the Giants' 40-man roster on MLB.com.

Pure speculation, but this may be a signal that the Giants are done considering trade options such as Wes Helms, Brandon Inge, and Joe Crede.  Giving up something decent for Inge or Crede never made sense for this team anyway.  Castillo probably won't do much for the Giants, but at least he doesn't cost anything.
