The Giants sign Scott Proctor to a minor league deal

6 Comments

I think the only time we at HBT ever talk about Scott Proctor is when he signs a minor league deal someplace. So in that spirit, let us note that Scott Proctor has signed a minor league deal someplace. From the TC Palm:

Veteran Major League Baseball right-handed pitcher Scott Proctor has agreed to terms with the defending World Series champion San Francisco Giants, according to his agent, Mark Rodgers.

Proctor was out of the bigs in 2012, playing for the Doosan Bears in the Korean Baseball Organization. He saved 35 games in 57 appearances with a 1.79 ERA over there for what it’s worth. Probably not a lot given the level of competition but it does suggest that he was healthy in order to take the ball that often, and that’s worth something for a guy who had his arm shredded like Proctor did back in the day.

The Braves claimed lefty reliever Grant Dayton off waivers from the Dodgers, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Dayton, 29, underwent Tommy John surgery back in August and is almost certainly out for the entire 2018 season. The Braves, obviously, are making a longer-term play here by acquiring him, as he is under team control through 2022.

Over parts of two seasons in the majors, Dayton has a 3.42 career ERA with 59 strikeouts and 18 walks in 50 innings.
