Erick Threets Designated

MONDAY: Threets has been designated for assignment; he probably wouldn't pass through waivers.

FRIDAY: According to Chris Haft of MLB.com, it seems that the Giants do not have room for 26 year-old southpaw reliever Erick Threets.  The surprising emergence of Alex Hinshaw has caused the roster crunch.  Threets is out of options, and his minor league rehab assignment ends today.

In this year's Baseball America Prospect Handbook, Threets was ranked 20th among Giants prospects.  Even with a lengthy injury history, Threets throws in the mid-90s with a solid changeup.  He's more about potential than numbers, given his high walk rates and subpar strikeout rates.
