Xavier Nady Close To Deal With Giants

7:48pm: The Giants are talking with Nady about a Triple-A deal, pending a physical, tweets Andrew Baggarly of CSNBayArea.com.  Nady is taking batting practice in Fresno tonight and is likely to be activated tomorrow, Baggarly adds (via Twitter).

7:39pm: Outfielder/first baseman Xavier Nady is close to agreeing to a minor league deal with the Giants, according to Andy Martino of the New York Daily News (via Twitter).  The Nationals designated Nady for assignment in late July before granting him his unconditional release on Sunday.

Nady, 33, has been out of action since mid-June due to a wrist injury.  Before that, Nady had a  .157/.211/.275 slash line with three homers in 109 plate appearances for Washington.  The veteran had interest from San Francisco over the winter but wound up inking a minor league deal with the Nats in March.

    Meh, could bring some experience at 1B.

      Just what the Giants need, more first baseman. They have one already that should start everyday.

    Uh-oh. This is just the kind of sub-mediocre veteran that Bruce Bochy loves to give all kinds of playing time.

  3. Don’t know why there are complaints. Low risk option similar to the Pat Burrell deal back in 2010. Let him get some AB’s in Fresno, and if the bat has something left give him a shot to provide some much needed pop at 1B. Not too optimistic on his chances of recapturing his 2008 form but no significant risk to the deal…

      Agreed low risk move that can potentially pay off. You just never know with these deals.
