San Francisco Giants release Tony Abreu
- Updated: March 23, 2014
Abreu, who hit .268 for the Giants last year in a limited role, was having an atrocious spring. He only managed a .179 batting average with just one extra-base hit and no walks. The Giants are in desperate need of reliable middle infielders due to the uncertainty surrounding Marco Scutaro‘s injured back, so it speaks to just how terrible Abreu has been this spring when the Giants were so willing to cut ties with him.
The Giants will likely carry three backup infielders to start the year: Joaquin Arias, spring training monster Brandon Hicks, and defensive specialist Ehire Adrianza. Should Scutaro start the season on the disabled list, Arias figures to see the bulk of playing time at second base.
The Giants open their 2014 season on Monday, March 31 against the Arizona Diamondbacks on the road.
