SF adds two more players on AAA deals

The San Francisco Giants have kept busy during the offseason as they have signed two more minor leaguers. Andy Sugillio comes to the club after spending 6 years in the Cincinnati Reds organization drafted in 2013 out of the Dominican Republic. The 24-year-old Dominican Republic native had a .286 average in the Reds organization and collected 175 RBIs with 12 homers. Sugillio's best season was last season, appearing in 118 games and had 3 home runs, 39 RBIs, and hit .294 in high A+ ball for the Daytona Tortugas. Sugillio has seen playing time in both the infield and outfield, but mainly outfield. He has a career fielding percentage of .969 with 20 errors and has made 596 putouts.

The other player joining the organization is relief pitcher Daniel Alvarez, who had been with the Yankees the past 6 seasons. The Venezuelan native was 26-12 during his time in the Yankees organization with a 2.69 ERA in 124 games (35 starts) totaling 345 strikeouts. He had allowed opponents to hit just .193 off him last year with 4 homers allowed in 47 games including 76 strikeouts. The 24-year-old right-hander finished the season with a 7-2 record. 21 saves and a 2.31 ERA. Alvarez got as high as AAA ball but appeared in just 2/3 of a game early in the season as the Railriders lost 4-3 to the Rochester Red Wings.
