Here are the day’s minor moves:
- The Giants have struck a minor league deal with righty Kyle Drabek, Matt Eddy of Baseball America tweets. But there’s a twist: while Drabek may ultimately return to the hill, San Francisco also intends to try him out at shortstop. As Eddy notes, the 28-year-old was once viewed as a talented two-way player who would have been a legitimate infield prospect. He has solely worked as a pitcher since going in the first round of the 2006 draft, but that hasn’t worked out as hoped. Over 179 2/3 innings of major league action, Drabek owns a 5.26 ERA with 6.2 K/9 against 5.9 BB/9.
