Well, a familiar name is being acquired by the Giants -- Yastrzemski.

The grandson of Hall of Famer Carl Yastrzemski, Michael, has been acquired by the team according to NBC Sports Bay Area's Alex Pavlovic:

The 28-year-old left-handed outfielder has spent six seasons in the minors, with last season playing for the Baltimore Orioles' Double-A and Triple-A affiliates. He finished his 2018 campaign across those two teams boasting a .250/.339/.414 line with 10 home runs.

Yastrzemski should provide some much needed, starving outfield depth for the Giants. And, like Pavlovic says -- maybe more moves are happening in the near future.
