The Giants announced that they have selected the contracts of outfielder Mac Williamson and catcher Trevor Brown from Triple-A. To clear room on the 40-man roster, Joe Panik has been transferred to the 60-day DL, and outfielder Daniel Carbonell has been designated for assignment, per Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area (Twitter link).
Carbonell, now 24 years old, signed a four-year, $3.5MM contract with the Giants last summer after defecting from Cuba. Though he performed exceptionally well last season in the low minors, he struggled in the Arizona Fall League and looked similarly overmatched in 2015, batting just .146/.173/.194 in 218 plate appearances at the Double-A level. Carbonell’s bat was said to be raw at the time of his signing, with scouts praising his glovework and speed over his bat.
