San Francisco Giants Acquire Outfielder From Phillies

The San Francisco Giants have made a move to bolster their outfield depth by acquiring outfielder Dalton Guthrie from the Philadelphia Phillies in exchange for cash considerations.

The 27-year-old Guthrie had been designated for assignment by the Phillies and will now join the Giants' Triple-A team in Sacramento.

To make room for Guthrie on the 40-man roster, the Giants transferred outfielder Mitch Haniger from the 10-day to the 60-day injured list.

Haniger, who underwent surgery for a fractured right ulna, is expected to be sidelined until September.

Guthrie brings positional flexibility and a solid minor league track record to the Giants' organization.

Although he has limited major league experience, his performance in the minors has been promising. With Guthrie's addition, the Giants aim to strengthen their depth and provide additional options for the outfield position as they continue their campaign.

In 37 games at the major-league level, Guthrie owns a .244/.393/.333 triple-slash line, with one home run, five RBIs, one stolen base, and seven runs scored.

For his minor-league career, he holds a solid .262/.321/.401 triple-slash line, with 29 home runs, 148 RBIs, and 39 stolen bases across 393 games played. Photo Credit: Jonathan Dyer-USA TODAY Sports
