    Xavier Nady

    Xavier Nady, who hit .184 in 59 games for the Nationals and Giants this year, has agreed to a minor-league contract with the Royals.

    Melky Cabrera

    According to Andrew Baggarly of CSNBayArea.com, the Giants reinstated Melky Cabrera to their 40-man roster today.  However, this isn’t as exciting as it sounds. The Giants still have no plans to carry him on their roster at any point during the postseason. Cabrera completed his 50-game PED suspension, so the Giants were basically required to…

    Boston Red Sox v Baltimore Orioles

    Orioles 6, Red Sox 3; Yankees 9, Blue Jays 6: 159 games and NOTHING has been decided in the AL East. And, say what you want about the new playoff setup, but the fact that it matters so much who wins the division makes this a fantastic final three days. The Yankees close things out with…

    Alfonso Soriano

    Alfonso Soriano made it known before the trade deadline that he wasn’t interested in a trade to the Giants.

    Washington has activated Mark DeRosa from the disabled list after the oft-injured veteran missed the past two months with a strained oblique muscle. DeRosa went 1-for-11 with four walks during a brief minor-league rehab assignment at Single-A and really struggled before the DL stint, so he’s unlikely to see much action unless Ryan Zimmerman‘s shoulder…

    May 7, 2012, 6:56 PM EDT

    Washington Nationals Photo Day

    Ryan Zimmerman needing a stint on the disabled list certainly isn’t a surprise considering the third baseman’s shoulder injury hasn’t shown any improvement, but the Nationals’ choice to replace him on the roster is a shocker. General manager Mike Rizzo announced that Bryce Harper will be called up from Triple-A tomorrow to make his MLB…

  18. The Giants and Xavier Nady have “mutual interest”

    Jan 27, 2012, 4:45 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Dodgers v Arizona Diamondbacks

    Looks like the Giants are looking at a youth movement. Hank Schulman on Twitter: Next name to watch for Giants: Xavier Nady. There’s some mutual interest, but almost certainly on a minor-league deal + invite. He could be a useful bat depending on his health, but coming off a 248/.287/.359 season, he’s not exactly a tonic…
