Contract Details: Wright, Grabow, Theriot, Fontenot

Some contract details from a pair of rivals in the NL West…

  • Jamey Wright and John Grabow can opt out of their minor league contracts with the Dodgers on Sunday, reports Dylan Hernandez of The Los Angeles Times (on Twitter). If the players opt-out, the team can keep them by adding them to the 40-man roster by March 30th.
  • Hank Schulman of The San Francisco Chronicle reports (on Twitter) that decision day for Ryan Theriot's contract is March 30th, not the 29th as previously reported. If the Giants cut him by the 29th, they'll only have to pay him one-fourth of his $1.25MM salary.
  • The same is true for both Mike Fontenot ($1.05MM) and Clay Hensley ($750K) according to Schulman (on Twitter). Their contracts become guaranteed if the Giants do not cut them before the 29th.

Very common practices with minor league contracts.

Fontenot probably stays.

I’d say Theriot probably goes. Although there are injuries to Sanchez, Theriot and Burriss.

Hensley goes…he has been awful

I really hope you are wrong.  I cant trust Fontenot out there as much as he is going to have to be.  Sanchez is one more injury away from possibly ending his career.  We will be lucky if Sanchez plays 100 games this year.  This means we need to have a STARTING 2B man.  Theriot is a better option, imo.  He gives us another RH bat and has had success in his career.  

I could care less what happens to Hensley.  I think the decision will come down to Surkamp in the bullpen, or Surkamp starting in Fresno.
