Giants - Siigned Phelps
San Franciso Giants - Signed 1B Josh Phelps to a minor-league contract.
Josh Phelps is a pretty good example of how important timing can be. The Kevin Reimer/Dante Bichette trade cost the former and earned the latter millions of dollars. David Ortiz might have ended up as a “poor defensive malcontent AAAA slugger” if Jeremy Giambi’s shoulder had been in better condition.
In Phelps’s case, he left the Indians before he could have replaced an injured Travis Hafner, the Rays before they decided to give a 1B shot to a solid non-roster invitee in Carlos Pena, played for the Yankees while Jason Giambi was healthy, and then played for a non-DH team with the best 1B in baseball. The Giants are the best situation Phelps has been in for playing-time since he was in Toronto and sadly, he’s not the hitter he once was and the Giants have no business giving him a full-time job at 1st when they need to be looking at the younger options like Ishikawa. Phelps, if he makes the team, will be a pinch-hitter, but he’s not particularly good at that role.
