The San Francicso Giants rocked the roster today by designating OF Aaron Rowand and INF Miguel Tejada for assignment. The team has 10 days to trade or release both players and GM Brian Sabean doesn’t expect much action on the trade market. The moves cost the Giants over $15 million.
The defending World Series champs are famously struggling on offense and Rowand and Tejada weren’t helping. Both were batting in the .230’s with four HR’s apiece and not seeing much playing time after working through injuries this season.
To be eligible for post-season play, Rowand and Tejada must find their way to another club before 9PM PT tonight.
