Giants acquire Willie Calhoun from Rangers to Stephen Duggar

The Giants and Rangers agreed to exchange players. will send rangers Willie Calhoun Giants vs. a defensive player Stephen Duggar by Andrew Baggarly from The Athletic (Via Twitter). The Giants will also receive cash considerations from Texas, according to Susan Sluser of the San Francisco Chronicle (Via Twitter).

San Francisco had to decide on Duggar, who needed to add him back to the 40-man roster after completing his rehab job. Calhoun himself recently went through unclaimed exemptions.

For their part, the Rangers gain a player with more defensive advantage than Calhoun, who hasn’t really found a defensive home. Duggar can play all three outdoor locations. However, he has been on the list of infected people since April 21. He has appeared in each of the Giants’ past five seasons, earning a .242/.297/.377 total streak over 805 board appearances with an extremely high strike rate of 29.4 percent and a very low walk rate of 7.0 percent.

The plan is for Duggar to join the active roster. Rangers will be appointed Spencer Button To be commissioned to make room on Duggar’s 40-man roster, for each team. They’ll need to make another move to make room in Duggar’s active roster.

with Luis Gonzalez Going to the injured roster today, the Giants could easily have brought Duggar back to the Major League roster, so it’s interesting that they decided to move on. As a left-handed hitter, Duggar’s skill set does not compliment the giants’ current collection of defensive players that includes Gonzalez, Jock PedersonAnd the Mike JastrzemskyAnd the Austin SlaterAnd the Lamonte Wade Jr.Who himself is almost ready to return from the list of infected. Slater is only among that group of right-handed bats.

Of course, Calhoun is a left-handed bat too, so it’s less of a decent acquisition and more of a staff rehabilitation project for Triple-A. In general, giants work miracles in finding roles for players who previously could not find a specific role in a large club. players like Wilmer FloresAnd the Darren RoveAnd the Thiro Estrada They are the players who have found their home in the San Francisco system. Calhoun had his chances in the seniors, and while no longer a prospect, the Giants are promising a landing spot as young vets like Calhoun hope to find him in this league. Currently, the Giants can send it directly to Triple-A without adding it to their roster of 40 players.
