San Francisco Giants Release 6-Year Veteran Infielder

The San Francisco Giants have made the decision to part ways with infielder Johan Camargo, marking the end of his short stint with the team.

Camargo, known for his defensive versatility, spent just a month with the Giants, participating in only eight Major League games during that time.

His 2023 season was characterized by frequent transitions between Triple-A and different organizations, including the Kansas City Royals and the Detroit Tigers' Triple-A affiliates earlier in the year.

In mid-August, Camargo joined the Giants' Triple-A club in Sacramento after his earlier stints with other teams.

Over his seven-year career, the 29-year-old holds a .254/.313/.407 triple-slash line, with 37 home runs, 161 RBIs, two stolen bases, and 149 runs scored across 424 games played.

Although he briefly returned to the Giants' big league roster last month, he cleared waivers at the end of August and accepted an outright assignment to Sacramento.

Now, with seven years of MLB experience under his belt, Camargo becomes a potential candidate for minor league free agency this offseason.

While it remains uncertain if he'll join a new club for the final few weeks of the current season, his versatility and experience make him an intriguing option for teams looking to bolster their roster depth. Photo Credit: Robert Edwards-USA TODAY Sports
