The SF Giants traded Billy Hamilton for pitching prospect Jordan Humphreys, The Giants signed one of the fastest players in MLB history in the offseason
Even the San Francisco Giants spent a lot of spring-training considering creative ways to make the most of center fielder Billy Hamilton’s elite rate. The Giants announced Sunday that they exchanged Hamilton as a swap for right-wing pitching prospect Jordan Humphreys, a 24-year-old who never prevailed over High-A from the little leagues. Humphreys has been also designated for assignment earlier this week by NYC, therefore he will be inserted into the Giants’ 40-man roster. Hamilton’s probability of helping the Giants diminished when he was not able to report to summer camp time because of health matters.
He came in Oracle Park a week until the season and also spent the early days of this program training at the team Sacramento alternative camp, however, the Giants no longer have a dependence on a different left hitting option in center field. Second-year outfielder Mike Yastrzemski has immediately established herself as a fulltime fighter in the career and directs the significant leagues with a 1.0 WAR throughout nine matches. Yastrzemski is hitting on .400 having a 1.328 OPS, and it has received compliments from director Gabe Kapler for how he has handled center field when leading the bar to your 54 record 76ers.
Humphreys has been optioned into the team’s alternative camp at Sacramento and can practice together with other Giants prospects for example catchers Joey Bart along with Patrick Bailey. The right-hander has a livelihood 2.60 ERA in the minors but has just appeared in just two matches as the 2017 seasons because he underwent Tommy John surgery to correct his own UCL in his throwing elbow.
and the fans are excited about the rangers vs giants game.
