    New home for HardballTalk favorite Jeff Francoeur. MLB.com beat writer Corey Brock reports that the Padres have signed the veteran outfielder to a minor league contract. He will report to the minor league side of Padres camp on Wednesday morning. Francoeur was cut by the Indians last week despite batting .286/.359/.429 with 10 RBI in…

    Francoeur Getty

    Jeff Francoeur signed a minor league deal with the Indians over the winter in hopes of earning a spot on the Opening Day roster, but Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports that he was cut from the team this morning. Francoeur was actually pretty productive during Cactus League play, hitting 286/.359/.429 with one home run, two…

  12. Jeff Francoeur was depressed last year

    Feb 20, 2014, 4:57 PM EDT

    Jeff Francoeur AP

    Jeff Francoeur was cut by the Giants before the season was over last year. This after a disastrous 2013 season and a sub-par 2012 season. He’s in Indians camp now, likely with his las shot at the majors. Paul Hoynes spoke with him and he talked about what was ailing him at the end of…

  13. The Indians are interested in . . . Bobby Abreu?

    In a world where people keep giving Jeff Francoeur paychecks I don’t suppose anything should surprise us. But this is still surprising: Indians are very interested in signing OF Bobby Abreu. They have been monitoring him in winter ball and talking about deal with him. — Tony Lastoria (@TonyIBI) January 7, 2014   Abreu has…

  14. Indians sign Jeff Francoeur

    Jan 6, 2014, 7:31 PM EDT

    Jeff Francoeur AP

    The Indians just announced that they have signed outfielder Jeff Francoeur to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training. ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick reported earlier this evening that the two sides were close to a deal. Francoeur, who turns 30 on Wednesday, hit rock bottom last season by batting just .204/.238/.298 with three…

  15. Hunter Pence could be first outfielder since 2007 to start every game

    Sep 9, 2013, 7:05 PM EDT

    Hunter Pence

    No outfielder since Jeff Francoeur in 2007 has started every game in a season, yet Hunter Pence is on pace to do that this season for the Giants, CSN Bay Area’s Andrew Baggarly reports. If he does so, he’ll be the first Giant to start every game in a season since shortstop Alvin Dark in…

  16. What we talk about when we talk about Yasiel Puig

    After reading one really, really bad Yasiel Puig column and one really, really good one this morning, I stopped to think about what really animates people about this guy. And I decided that, while it isn’t racism as we’ve come to think about it — I don’t for a second think that everyone who gets…

  17. Today’s Yasiel Puig hilarity: he’s apparently a “poor man’s Jeff Francoeur”

    Aug 22, 2013, 8:25 AM EDT

    Yasiel Puig

    Buzzfeed has waded knee-deep into derp: See, the thing about this is that while “hype in social media age” can, indeed, be tricky, baseball players are not properly assessed by their “hype in the social media age.” “Sharknado” got a lot of hype in the social media age too. No one has mistaken it for…

  18. Is the end here for Jeff Francoeur?

    Aug 21, 2013, 12:40 AM EDT

    Jeff Francoeur

    Maybe someone will pick Jeff Francoeur up for their bench after the Giants designated the 29-year-old outfielder for assignment on Tuesday, but it’s far from a given. His former habit was to hit like gangbusters whenever he joined a new team, but in San Francisco, he came in at .194/.206/.226 with no homers and four…

  19. Giants designate Jeff Francoeur for assignment, place Chad Gaudin on 15-day disabled list

    Aug 20, 2013, 7:39 PM EDT

    jeff francoeur getty

    The Giants made a flurry of 25-man and 40-man roster moves before Tuesday night’s game vs. the Red Sox. Our friends at CSNBayArea.com have the goods: The Giants recalled pitchers Mike Kickham and Jean Machi from Triple-A Fresno and made room on the 25-man roster by placing Chad Gaudin on the disabled list and designating…

  20. The defending world champs have Jeff Francoeur starting in center field

    Aug 7, 2013, 6:45 PM EDT

    Jeff Francoeur

    Never has a team fallen so far, so rapidly. Jeff Francoeur is making his third career start in center field as the Giants take on the Brewers in San Francisco tonight. His other two both came last year with the Royals, when he played 16 innings and somehow never had a ball hit his way.…

  21. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 6, 2013, 6:34 AM EDT

    Minnesota Twins v Kansas City Royals

    Royals 13, Twins 0: Hard to envision any more of a domination than this. A four hit shutout for Jeremy Guthrie while the Royals offense puts up a baker’s dozen. Jamey Carroll was literally the most effective pitcher of the game for the Twins. Eric Hosmer drove in five. Dodgers 3, Cardinals 2: Fifteen straight…

  22. Giants plan to platoon Jeff Francoeur with Kensuke Tanaka

    Jul 12, 2013, 9:20 PM EDT

    Jeff Francoeur AP

    Per CSN Bay Area’s Andrew Baggarly, Giants manager Bruce Bochy says he plans to platoon newcomer Jeff Francoeur and 32-year-old Japanese rookie Kensuke Tanaka in left field. Francoeur, signed by the Giants on July 8 after being designated for assignment by the Royals, will join the team tomorrow. Tanaka made his Major League debut on…

  23. Report: Jeff Francoeur to join the Giants

    Kansas City Royals Photo Day

    Ain’t that a daisy? Sources: Francoeur agrees with #SFGiants. — Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) July 9, 2013   I’d be inclined to joke that this should fix everything for the Giants, but Brian Sabean and Jeff Francoeur have both made me look foolish for doubting their success — even if I disagree with their methods —…

  24. Royals release Jeff Francoeur

    Jul 5, 2013, 3:45 PM EDT

    Jeff Francoeur AP

    As expected no teams wanted anything to do with the $3 million or so remaining on Jeff Francoeur‘s contract, so he passed through waivers unclaimed and has been released by the Royals. That means Francoeur is now a free agent and able to sign with any team for whatever money and role he can get.…
