    From Bruce Levine of Chicago’s 670 The Score comes word that the Cubs have activated catcher Welington Castillo from the 15-day disabled list and designated Eli Whiteside for assignment in a corresponding move to open up a roster spot.

    Eli Whiteside is giving Sandy Rosario some competition for the waiver wire’s favorite player this offseason. Today the Rangers claimed Whiteside off waivers from the Blue Jays, who had claimed him off waivers from the Yankees … who had claimed him off waivers from the Giants. And all since November 1. Somewhere along the way…

  3. Blue Jays claim Eli Whiteside off waivers from Yankees

    Eli Whiteside, Matt Cain

    Eli Whiteside has been a busy guy. First the Yankees claimed him off waivers from the Giants in early November. Then he avoided arbitration with the Yankees by signing a one-year, $625,000 deal. Then the Yankees dropped him from the 40-man roster and placed him back on waivers. And now the Blue Jays have claimed…

    Eli Whiteside has agreed to a one-year, $650,000 contract with the Yankees, avoiding arbitration after being claimed off waivers from the Giants earlier this month. Whiteside isn’t much of a hitter, batting .215 with a .608 OPS in 208 career games, but the 33-year-old has thrown out 31 percent of stolen base attempts and is…

    It’s “are interested in” season: Mike Napoli, the Texas #Rangers free-agent catcher, is drawing interest from the New York #Yankees — Bob Nightengale (@BNightengale) November 12, 2012   Eli Whiteside:  What am I, chopped liver? Brian Cashman: Well, kinda. Red Sox: Are you just doing this because you saw that we were interested in Napoli…

  6. Yankees claim catcher Eli Whiteside off waivers from the Giants

    The Yankees announced this evening that they have claimed catcher Eli Whiteside off waivers from the Giants. It’s your move, Russell Martin. Whiteside, 33, appeared in 12 games with the World Series champion Giants this season and owns a meager .215/.273/.335 batting line and a .608 OPS over 537 plate appearances in the majors. He…

  7. Melky Cabrera left off Giants’ unchanged World Series roster

    As expected the Giants have decided against adding Melky Cabrera to the roster for the World Series and will stick with the same group they used in the NLDS and NLCS. Cabrera’s exclusion was all but given considering the team’s comments about the situation for the past several weeks, but there was some speculation that…

  8. Hector Sanchez adds two more homers in bid to make Giants

    Mar 12, 2012, 4:00 PM EDT

    Hector Sanchez

    No catcher has played in 100 major league games in his age-22 season since Brian McCann in 2006. Hector Sanchez probably won’t be the next — actually, Kansas City’s Salvador Perez figures to pull off the feat if he stays healthy this season — but he is bidding to make the Giants as a backup…

  9. Running down the rosters: San Francisco Giants

    Feb 16, 2012, 11:47 PM EDT

    Tim Lincecum, Buster Posey

    Coming off a disappointing 86-76 finish in 2011, the Giants’ big moves this winter were a pair of underwhelming trades: Jonathan Sanchez for Melky Cabrera and Andres Torres plus Ramon Ramirez for Angel Pagan. To say the least, they didn’t make the kind of splash their fans were hoping for (but have come not to…

  10. Buster Posey aiming to take batting practice and run the bases in early February

    Time for another update on Buster Posey‘s recovery from the broken leg that ended his sophomore season on May 25. Chris Haft of MLB.com reports that Posey has now progressed to 30- and 60-yard sprints along with additional agility drills and “mild distance running.” Posey has yet to go through live batting practice and isn’t…

  11. Giants re-sign Eli Whiteside to minor-league contract

    Dec 16, 2011, 12:44 PM EDT

    Prince Fielder, Eli Whiteside

    UPDATE: Whiteside is officially back in San Francisco, getting a minor-league contract, so the Giants made the correct call in non-tendering him. He’ll have to compete for a roster spot during spring training. ========== Earlier this week the Giants non-tendered Eli Whiteside, making him a free agent, but John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle…

  12. Tracking the non-tenders: Joe Saunders, Luke Scott, Hong-Chih Kuo

    Dec 13, 2011, 12:54 AM EDT

    Luke Scott

    Here’s the official list of players non-tendered prior to the Monday midnight deadline: American League Baltimore: OF/DH Luke Scott, LHP Jo-Jo Reyes, RHP Willie Eyre Scott went from hitting .284/.368/.535 during an excellent 2010 season to .220/.301/.402 in 209 at-bats during a 2011 season shortened by shoulder surgery. The Orioles could re-sign him for significantly less…
