The website Sportslogos.net hears “from a reliable source” that the Giants are going to bring back their old interlocking “SF” road jerseys as a road alternate next season. It’s supposed to be a slight update of this number:
Eh. I’m kind of partial to their current look with the block “San Francisco” on it. But I guess it beats a black jersey or something equally lame.
Infielder Trevor Plouffe has signed a minor league deal with the Phillies, Gerry Fraley of the Dallas Morning News reports. Plouffe asked for and was granted his release from the Rangers earlier this month.
Plouffe, 31, had a double and a home run in 17 plate appearances with Triple-A Round Rock to start the 2018 season. He spent last year with the Athletics and Rays, putting up a meager .198/.272/.318 batting line in 100 games.
Plouffe has mostly played third base throughout his career, but can also handle the other three infield spots and both outfield corners, so he’ll serve as organizational depth at Triple-A Lehigh Valley for the Phillies.
