Giants Bring Back Travis Ishikawa on Minor League Deal
The San Francisco Giants today signed their former prospect Travis Ishikawa to a minor league deal and assigned him to AAA Fresno. It’s a nice story to have the Giants bring back Ish, but I still think his best professional future remains getting a job with a Japanese team.
I just don’t see Ish helping the Giants much in the future. Even if Brandon Belt were to get hurt, I think the Giants have other better options to fill in at first, for example, moving Buster Posey to first and calling up Andrew Susac to split the catching duties with Hector Sanchez. Mike Morse could also be moved to first with Gregor Blanco playing in left.
