The Giants aren't done making moves.
The team traded outfielder John Andreoli to the Twins for outfielder Michael Reed as NBC Sports Bay Area's Alex Pavlovic reported on Saturday.
The Giants traded for Michael Reed, a Twins outfielder. They sent John Andreoli the other way. Steven Okert was DFA’d. Pray for the person in charge of updating the media guide.— Alex Pavlovic (@PavlovicNBCS) March 23, 2019
The team confirmed the transaction Sunday.
Reed played in just seven games last year with the Braves, hitting .286/.286/.286 -- the man, if anything, is consistent.
But across 53 games in Triple-A, he boasted a .363 batting average with seven home runs and 25 RBI.
Obviously, his big league numbers are at a very small sample size, but those numbers in the International League seem promising.
The Giants released both Cameron Maybin and Matt Joyce over the last 24 hours. The team acquired Michael Yastrzemski on Saturday to help bolster the outfield and provide more bodies for an empty situation -- that appears to be the trend with bringing Reed to the team.
