Here are the day’s minor moves:
- The Giants dealt first baseman/outfielder John Bowker to the Pirates earlier in the week, Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area tweets. Bowker came to the San Francisco organization over the offseason after a run in Japan. The 31-year-old former big leaguer has hit .263/.304/.372 in his 148 plate appearances at Triple-A. Pittsburgh sent cash or a PTBNL in the deal, per Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle (via Twitter).
The Left Shark
Seriously. Let’s hope heearned how to hit consistently the second time around.
Oops, the above should have been in response to the “déjà vu” comment. The Giants sent Bowker to the Bucs the first time around, I believe in the Freddy Sanchez trade.
It was the Javy Lopez trade. Sanchez gave the Bucs Tim Alderson
Anyway deal makes a fair amount of sense Hunter Morris the Pirates AAA 1B went on the DL today. Pirates needed a body to fill that spot.
Prep move to bring up bell soon? Doubt it though
