Holy bath salts, Batman! I missed this last night. Here’s Jayson Werth’s quote after last night’s loss to the Phillies:

 

Given that, for most of his career, Werth has looked like a guy who was stranded in the Sierras when winter hit, no, I don’t suppose we should be too surprised by this.

The Giants announced on Monday night the signing of outfielder Austin Jackson. According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, it’s a two-year, $6 million deal with performance incentives that allow Jackson to earn up to an additional $2.5 million for a total of $8.5 million.

Jackson, who soon turns 31 years old, spent last season with the Indians. In 318 plate appearances, he hit .318/.387/.482 with seven home runs, 35 RBI, and 46 runs scored.

The Giants have been on the hunt for a center fielder and Jackson addresses that need relatively cheaply. Jackson will join Hunter Pence and newcomer Andrew McCutchen in the outfield.
