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.

  2. emmanuel burris fills spot
