• Giants add another veteran in Guyer
  • Guyer will be another player on a minor league deal
  • Guyer has chance to make it to the big league

The San Francisco Giants continue to address their outfielder woes, bringing in another veteran in Brandon Guyer. The 34-year-old player has reportedly agreed to a minor league deal with the Giants with an invite to the big league training camp.

According to Bob Nightengale of USA Today, Guyer will earn $1 million if he cracks the 26-man roster. He provides non-roster depth to San Francisco but his skills make him an appealing addition. Further, he joins a cast of mostly left-handed hitters. That includes Mike Yastrzemski and Alex Dickerson.

Guyer has a career .274/.376/.449 slash line against lefties. He did not play in the big leagues last year and owned a .671 OPS for the Cleveland Indians the year before. The 34-year-old is the latest veteran to be added to the mix following Hunter Pence.

In a previous post, Pence was taken in a reunion of sorts. Already 36, the big question about Pence is his injury history. Regardless, the fact is that he is a four-time All-Star and the Giants are hoping a reunion could ramp up their woes in the outfield. He played just 83 games last season due to a back injury.

Guyer last suited up for the Chicago White Sox. He started his MLB career with the Tampa Bay Rays where he played give big league seasons. He also had three with the Cleveland Indians.

The Giants continue to rebuild and it appears they are pinning hopes on veteran MLB players. Before Pence, San Francisco signed Pablo Sandoval as well. He is another returning Giant, reportedly agreeing to a minor-league arrangement. But similar to Pence and Guyer, the 33-year-old also has his share of injuries.

Sandoval had a brief stint with the Boston Red Sox in an unforgettable tenure. He has been occasionally called upon when Giants players suffer an injury. Looking ahead, it appears this will be the same scenario for Sandoval, the same with Pence.

Sandoval is expected to play behind Evan Longoria this coming NFL season. He is expected to pinch-hit when called upon, a role he does not seem to mind. However, there is the possibility that he along with Pence and Guyer could see more action if some Giants are bitten by the injury bug.
