Giants trade starter Matt Moore to the Rangers for prospects

In Matt Moore’s first season with the Giants, he pitched them to within an inning of a winner-take-all playoff game against the eventual World Series champs. In his second year, he statistically was the worst starter in the majors. Moore, 28, will not get a third year in San Francisco. The Giants traded him to the Texas Rangers on Friday night in their first significant move of the offseason, a case of financial addition by subtraction. The Giants will receive minor-league pitchers Sam Wolff, a 26-year-old who is out at least until June after flexor-tendon...

Giants add reliever Julian Fernandez from Colorado in Rule 5 draft.

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — It will not appear this way on the transaction wire, but the Giants effectively completed a trade Tuesday that netted them hard-throwing Colorado relief prospect Julian Fernandez while they lost swingman Albert Suarez to Arizona. The Giants used the second pick of the Rule 5 draft Thursday to select Fernandez from the Rockies. He is a 22-year-old right-hander who routinely throws over 100 miles an hour and, though a long shot to make the 2018 club, could provide the strikeout stuff the Giants seek for their bullpen. Fernandez struck...

Giants complete ‘significant rebuild’ of weakened farm system

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. - In winning three World Series, the Giants used their farm system effectively to stock their big-league club and trade for help. Things have changed. The system is not be barren, but the flow of prospects to the big club has slowed, and the Giants acknowledge that a dearth of sexy Top 100 prospects hinders them in trade talks. "It's fair to say our system is not as strong as we'd like it to be, and it does sometimes cost us deals," general manager Bobby Evans said Wednesday. "That's reality." The Giants hope to change the reality. The...

Giants keep looking after Marlins deal outfielder Ozuna to Cardinals

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. - Less than a week after the Yankees cuckolded the Giants and Cardinals and got Giancarlo Stanton, Miami and St. Louis reached agreement on a deal for the second-biggest piece of Derek Jeter's fire sale. On Wednesday, the final full day of the winter meetings, the Marlins agreed to trade power-hitting left fielder Marcell Ozuna to the Cardinals for a package of minor-leaguers. Ozuna would have fit the Giants perfectly, but they could not offer the Marlins an equivalent of Sandy Alcantra, a 22-year-old pitcher who throws 100 miles an...

Willie Mays pens heartfelt tribute to friend Ed Lee: ‘I will miss him’

Willie Mays was close with San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee, who died early Tuesday morning. Last year, on Mays’ 85th birthday, Lee oversaw the dedication of a cable car to the Giants’ legend. Tuesday, Mays wrote the following: I can't believe that Ed Lee is gone. I am as shocked as I am saddened. Mayor Lee was just always there. I'd meet him on the street outside of the ballpark, or he'd be at home plate joining me in a ceremony like the one we had for Tony Bennett. When my wife passed, he immediately came up with the idea for the Mae Mays Softball Tournament...
