San Francisco Giants Clear Payroll by Trading Moore to Texas


Perhaps a return to the American League will turn Moore's luck around as his trade helps the Giants refuel their depleted farm system, and opens up a portion of their payroll.

San Francisco last month exercised Moore's $7 million option for 2018.

John Shea also reported that Giants outfielder Hunter Pence was a possibility to be moved, but Pence has a no trade clause and according to Alex Pavlovic, they have not asked him to waive his no trade clause.

Additionally, Erdogan pledged to take more steps so that "the maximum number of countries" could recognize Palestine . Previously, US President Donald Trump proclaimed that the US recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

He was 6-15 with a 5.52 ERA in 2017. He struck out nearly 12 batters per nine innings in 2017, but allowed 36 hits and 21 earned runs in 32 innings.

Moore, 28, is coming off a awful season.

Moore would be the fourth lefty in the rotation, joining Cole Hamels, Martin Perez and Mike Minor. Pence is entering the final year of a five-year, $90 million extension he signed following the 2013 season. Texas general manager Jon Daniels has said the club intends to use Minor as a starter.

Yu Darvish and Jake Arrieta the best three free agents, but they should land deals around $25 million a season. Despite playing home games in the pitcher-friendly AT&T Park, Moore led the NL in earned runs allowed.

Wolff pitched exclusively out of the bullpen in 2017 and split the year between Double-A and Triple-A. If the Rangers take all of Moore's salary for 2018, the Giants would save $9 million. In Triple-A, he owned a 2.38 ERA, 1.147 WHIP, and struck out 32 batters in 22.2 innings.
