Report: Giants, Piscotty agree to minor-league deal
The San Francisco Giants and outfielder Stephen Piscotty agreed to a minor-league contract with an invite to spring training, according to FanSided's Robert Murray.
Piscotty's deal is worth $1 million at the major-league level, Murray reports.
The 32-year-old journeyman stays in the Bay Area after most recently playing for the Oakland Athletics. Piscotty was traded from the St. Louis Cardinals to Oakland in an effort to be closer to his family, and he spent five seasons with the A's before getting released in August.
Last year, Piscotty hit .190/.252/.341 with five homers and two steals over 42 games. Over his five-year stint with the Athletics, he posted a .728 OPS with 55 home runs and 11 stolen bases over 403 contests.
The Giants have addressed their need for outfielders throughout the winter, previously signing Mitch Haniger and Michael Conforto.
