I think the only time we at HBT ever talk about Scott Proctor is when he signs a minor league deal someplace. So in that spirit, let us note that Scott Proctor has signed a minor league deal someplace. From the TC Palm:

Veteran Major League Baseball right-handed pitcher Scott Proctor has agreed to terms with the defending World Series champion San Francisco Giants, according to his agent, Mark Rodgers.

Proctor was out of the bigs in 2012, playing for the Doosan Bears in the Korean Baseball Organization. He saved 35 games in 57 appearances with a 1.79 ERA over there for what it’s worth. Probably not a lot given the level of competition but it does suggest that he was healthy in order to take the ball that often, and that’s worth something for a guy who had his arm shredded like Proctor did back in the day.

    “…for a guy who had his arm shredded like Proctor did back in the day.”

    Thank You Joe Torre, .. master of the bullpen strategy.

    He’s about as useless as they come.. Couldn’t believe the braves even gave him as many chances as they did

      You do mean Torre, right?

    I didn’t think he had a chance of hooking up with another team, but good luck anyway.

    last time the Giants took a flier on a pitcher in the Asian leagues it worked out. Ryan Voglesong was an All Star in 2011 and has been near the top of the league for ERA for starting pitchers.

    Not saying Proctor is another All Star reclamation project. He’s a long shot to be sure. But if the Giant’s scouts see something of value in him, then it’s worth a low risk investment.
