Giants Designate Eric Hacker For Assignment

The Giants have designated Eric Hacker for assignment, according to Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle (via Twitter).  The right-hander saw just nine innings of work for the Giants this season, including one six inning start in April.

Hacker spent the bulk of the year with Triple-A Fresno, posting a 4.01 ERA with 6.2 K/9 and 2.6 BB/9 in 25 starts and one relief appearance.  The 29-year-old has a 4.76 ERA with 6.6 K/9 and 3.2 BB/9 in five Triple-A campaigns.

I’m still wondering why Brock Bond was not called up to replace Hacker?

I mean Bond has paid his dues and was accidentally drafted by the Giants for crying out loud.

Don’t believe me go look it up.

He’s been designated to go “work” on Don Mattingly’s laptop… remotely of course…
