Giants claim Tony Abreu off waivers from Royals

4 Comments

San Francisco picked up a potential backup infielder by claiming Tony Abreu off waivers from Kansas City today.

Abreu spent most of last season at Triple-A, but got into 22 games for the Royals and has 464 career plate appearances in the majors, hitting .252 with a .635 OPS.

Even for a utility infielder that isn’t much production, but the 28-year-old switch-hitter has done some nice work in the minors, batting .324 in 355 games at Triple-A to suggest he might be capable of more offensively.

Not much has changed with the All-Star voting in the National League this week. All of the same leaders from last week are leading this week. Matt Kemp and Bryce Harper have flip-flopped at 2-3 in the outfield voting but it’s still all the same.

Buster Posey leads at catcher, first base is Freddie Freeman, second is his Braves teammate Ozzie Albies, third is Nolan Arenado, short is Brandon Crawford and Nick Markakis leads the outfield trio.
