CSNBayArea.com’s Andrew Baggarly has the goods:
The Giants and 11-year veteran Xavier Nady have agreed to a minor league contract, club officials confirmed.
Nady, 33, is taking batting practice with Triple-A Fresno on Saturday and could be on the Grizzlies’ active roster as soon as Sunday, vice president Bobby Evans said. The contract is still pending a medical evaluation.
Nady was released by the Nationals at the end of July after batting just .157/.211/.275 with three homers and six RBI in 109 plate appearances. The 33-year-old could climb his way to the majors in September if he does well in San Francisco’s farm system.
Nady slugged 25 dingers and tallied 97 RBI in 148 games between the Pirates and Yankees in 2008.
