Giants' Thomas Szapucki: Returns to Giants on minors pact
Szapucki (shoulder) signed a minor-league contract with the Giants on Nov. 18.
Szapucki was non-tendered by San Francisco on Nov. 17 before being brought back into the fold one day later. The 27-year-old left-hander hasn't pitched at any level since 2022 because of a shoulder injury that ultimately required thoracic outlet surgery this past May. It's hard to say what his health status will be at the beginning of the 2024 campaign.... See More ... See Less

Waites was non-tendered by San Francisco earlier this month but is now back in the organization. The 25-year-old had Tommy John surgery in September and will be sidelined until at least spring training in 2025. He'll now get to conduct his rehab in familiar surroundings.... See More ... See Less

Diaz signed a minor-league contract with the Giants on Tuesday.
Diaz, 27, slashed .278/.374/.484 with 16 home runs over 94 games with Double-A Tulsa in the Dodgers organization last season. The shine has long since worn off since his top prospect days, but Diaz is still fairly young and the Giants felt he was worth a no-risk flier.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Mike Yastrzemski: Signs for $7.9M deal
Yastrzemski avoided arbitration with the Giants on Friday with a one-year, $7.9 million contract, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.
The 33-year-old outfielder earned $6.1 million in 2023 while registering a .775 OPS with 15 home runs across 106 games for San Francisco. He had an .831 OPS against righties and should continue to fill a strong-side platoon role in 2024.... See More ... See Less

Slater (elbow) signed a one-year, $4 million contract with the Giants on Friday, Craig Mish of the Miami Herald reports.

Slater will turn 31 in December and is expected to be ready for the start of spring training after undergoing right elbow surgery in October.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Kai-Wei Teng: Receives 40-man spot
The Giants added Teng to their 40-man roster Tuesday.
Teng split time between Double-A Richmond and Triple-A Sacramento last season, putting up a 4.42 ERA and 1.36 WHIP through 126.1 combined innings.

Giants' Erik Miller: Selected to 40-man roster
The Giants added Miller to their 40-man roster Tuesday.
Miller put together a solid season in 2023, logging a 2.45 ERA and 1.20 WHIP in 62.1 frames between Double-A and Triple-A. He's now protected from being selected in next month's Rule 5 Draft, and a strong spring from Miller could lead to a spot in the Giants' Opening Day bullpen.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Trevor McDonald: Protected from Rule 5 Draft
The Giants added McDonald to their 40-man roster Tuesday.
Rather than risking losing McDonald in the upcoming Rule 5 Draft, the Giants will give the 22-year-old righty a spot on their 40-man. McDonald spent the early stages of the season working his way back from an arm injury before posting a dominant 0.96 ERA and 0.86 WHIP in 37.2 innings at High-A Eugene. It's possible the Giants bump McDonald up to Double-A to begin the 2024 campaign.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Cody Stashak: Inks minors deal with SF
Stashak signed a minor-league contract with the Giants on Friday.
After undergoing season-ending surgery in June 2022 to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder, Stashak found work with the Lancaster Barnstormers of the independent Atlantic League of Professional Baseball and eventually worked his way back into the Giants' farm system for the final month of the 2023 campaign. He'll remain with the organization to begin 2024 in hopes of joining the big-league bullpen down the road. Stashak posted a 3.86 ERA and 0.98 WHIP through 16.1 innings with the Twins in 2022 before getting injured.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Spencer Howard: Latches on with Giants
Howard signed a minor-league contract with the Giants on Friday.
Howard made three major-league appearances with the Rangers in 2023, though most of his time was spent in Triple-A, where he put up a 6.86 ERA and 1.24 WHIP over 21 frames. Given his career 7.20 ERA and 1.67 WHIP across 115 innings in the majors, it's unlikely Howard makes an impact with the Giants.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Chase Pinder: Signs MiLB deal with Giants
Pinder signed a minor-league contract with the Giants on Friday.
Pinder spent most of last season with the Cardinals' Triple-A affiliate, where he slashed .265/.401/.417 with 34 RBI across 279 plate appearances. The 27-year-old outfielder will likely report to Triple-A Sacramento and could see time in the majors if he replicates his performance from 2023.... See More ... See Less

The Giants pulled Bednar from the Arizona Fall League due to recurring back discomfort, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.
Bednar made six appearances in the Fall League before being pulled, surrendering eight runs over 5.1 innings.
