Ellison has been a Giants lifer, playing all three outfield spots. He’s been a starter, platoon-mate, fourth outfielder, fifth outfielder…you name it. He’s seen a lot of Triple A pitching, and was able to rock it to a .406/.452/.536 tune in 192 ABs last year. He may be able to earn himself a starting job for 2008.
Blackley is a soft-tossing lefty who relies on his changeup. He missed all of ’05 after labrum surgery. He could be a fifth starter option in San Francisco this summer.
