Dodgers Almost Sign Marcus Giles

THURSDAY, 1:45pm: Not so fast.  Miller has an update to his initial report below, which came from Marcus' brother Brian.  Marcus' agent is now saying that Brian was misinformed - they never finalized anything with the Dodgers and he's not playing for them, after all.

THURSDAY, 8:14am: Scott Miller says Giles will report to Triple A for the Dodgers, after all.  The Dodgers still seem to have some interest in Wes Helms though.

TUESDAY: Tony Jackson of the L.A. Daily News chronicles the odd tale of the Dodgers' near-signing of infielder Marcus Giles.  Apparently an agreement was reached but Giles changed his mind on the drive over to Cashman Field in Las Vegas.  He was to re-acquaint himself with third base at Triple A before joining the Dodgers.

Jackson notes that this Giles debacle caused Ned Colletti to miss out on two available role players, one of which was Alex Cintron.  A commenter on Jackson's blog suggested Scott Spiezio was the other; not a bad guess.  Seems possible that Giles might retire; he turns 30 in May.
