On May 25 the Giants designated Travis Ishikawa for assignment. Today they’re doing it again, and selecting the contract of outfielder Ryan Lollis to take his place on the roster.
The first time he cleared waivers and went to Triple-A Sacramento. He’s been back up since the end of June when Nori Aoki went on the DL. Since that time, however, Ishikawa has only had six plate appearances, going 0-for-5 with a walk. Lollis, 28, in turn, has .358/.431/.500 across three levels of minor league ball this year.
In other Giants transaction news, they have placed Tim Hudson on the disabled list and have activated Jake Peavy.
