Giants sign Ronny Cedeno

2 Comments

Journeyman infielder Ronny Cedeno has agreed to a minor-league contract with the Giants.

Cedeno had a brief stint in the majors last season with the Phillies, but spent most of the year at Triple-A hitting .313 with four homers and a .799 OPS in 83 games.

He’s a career .335 hitter in parts of five seasons at Triple-A, but the 32-year-old has batted just .245 with a .641 OPS in 875 games as a big leaguer and is purely a depth signing at this point.

We’re less than four hours away from the first pitch of the 2019 World Series. We’ve known for a couple of days that it’d be all about Max Scherzer facing Gerrit Cole. As of a few moments ago we know the lineups each of those aces will face:

NATIONALS

1. Trea Turner (R) SS
2. Adam Eaton (L) RF
3. Anthony Rendon (R) 3B
4. Juan Soto (L) LF
5. Howie Kendrick (R) DH
6. Asdrúbal Cabrera (S) 2B
7. Ryan Zimmerman (R) 1B
8. Kurt Suzuki (R) C
9. Víctor Robles (R) CF

As expected, Howie Kendrick gets the nod at DH, which takes Washington’s worst infield glove out of the equation while keeping his bat in play.

ASTROS

1. George Springer (R) CF
2. José Altuve (R) 2B
3. Michael Brantley (L) LF
4. Alex Bregman (R) 3B
5. Yuli Gurriel (R) 1B
6. Carlos Correa (R) SS
7. Yordan Álvarez (L) DH
8. Martín Maldonado (R) C
9. Josh Reddick (L) RF

We’re pretty much used to these guys at this point.
