Giants Place Outfielder On Waivers After Productive 2022 Season

The San Francisco Giants have designated outfielder Luis González for assignment, as reported by Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic.

González, who joined the team in 2021, enjoyed a productive 2022 season, but his journey has been marked by injuries in 2023.

Last season, in his rookie year, Gonzalez slashed a decent .254/.323/.360 triple-slash line, with four home runs, 36 RBIs, 10 stolen bases, and 31 runs scored across 98 games played.

After a recent stint in Triple-A that saw a decline in performance, the Giants have made the decision to remove him from their active roster.

González's promising track record and previous potential could make him a candidate for claims by other teams off waivers.

However, his uncertain future in the league stems from his current setbacks. This move illustrates the Giants' strategic efforts to address their roster needs and explore alternatives in light of González's challenges.

For his minor-league career, the 27-year-old holds a .265/.348/.415 triple-slash line, with 38 home runs, 182 RBIs, 47 stolen bases, and 227 runs scored across 388 games played. Photo Credit: John Hefti-USA TODAY Sports
