The Giants have designated third baseman/outfielder Chris Dominguez for assignment, according to MLB.com’s transactions page. The move clears a spot on the Giants’ 40-man roster for the re-signed Ryan Vogelsong.
Dominguez, 28, made his Major League debut last season, appearing in eight September games and delivering one hit (a homer) in 18 plate appearances. He was picked by San Francisco in the third round of the 2009 draft and he posted a .269/.309/.436 slash line 2838 minor league plate appearances.
According to the MLB Trade Rumors DFA Tracker, Dominguez is one of six players in “DFA limbo,” along with Jose Constanza (Braves), Gonzalez Germen (Rangers), Cesar Jimenez (Phillies), Michael Ohlman (Orioles), and Dayan Viciedo (White Sox).
