    Giants reinstate reliever John Brebbia from the 60-day IL and place OF AJ Pollock on waivers

    The San Francisco Giants reinstated reliever John Brebbia from the 60-day injured list on Tuesday. San Francisco also placed veteran outfielder AJ Pollock on unconditional release waivers before its game at the Chicago Cubs. Right-hander Tristan Beck was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento. The 33-year-old Brebbia hasn't appeared in a big league game since June 16.

    AJ Pollock's release and the limits of the aggregate

    Sure, AJ Pollock didn't anything while with the Giants (0-for-6 with 2 strikeouts) and was added to be a complimentary contributor, but his release really shows just how badly the front office has guessed wrong this year. The Giants have guessed wrong. The Giants' lineup has only gotten worse and worse and worse and worse. AJ Pollock was their big trade deadline deal which they made probably because they didn't want to trade from their prospect depth to add a bigger contributor and/or the quality of that prospect depth isn't all that impressive to other teams looking to trade big contributors to improve their team's future.
