The Giants announced a series of roster moves today (via Maria Guardado of MLB.com). Right-handers Tyler Beede and Reyes Moronta, outfielder [url=https://www.baseball-reference.com/players/r/rickajo01.shtml?utm_campaign=Linker&utm_source=direct&utm_medium=linker-]Joey Rickard[/url] and catcher [url=https://www.baseball-reference.com/players/g/garciar01.shtml?utm_campaign=Linker&utm_source=direct&utm_medium=linker-]Aramís García[/url] were all reinstated from the 60-day injured list. Rickard cleared outright waivers and was assigned to Triple-A Sacramento. As a player with more than three years of MLB service, Rickard can choose to reject the assignment and become a free agent. Also clearing outright waivers were catcher [url=https://www.baseball-reference.com/players/h/heinety01.shtml?utm_campaign=Linker&utm_source=direct&utm_medium=linker-]Tyler Heineman[/url] and left-hander [url=https://www.baseball-reference.com/players/b/bandaan01.shtml?utm_campaign=Linker&utm_source=direct&utm_medium=linker-]Anthony Banda[/url]. Like Rickard, both players had the right to hit the open market. Banda, though, has already agreed to a new minor-league deal with San Francisco. Rickard, a former Oriole Rule 5 pick, was limited to six plate appearances in 2020. He’s a career .246/.300/.371 hitter. Heineman has taken 62 uninspiring trips to the plate over the past two seasons but amassed a solid resume in the high minors. Once a well-regarded prospect in the Diamondbacks’ and Rays’ systems, Banda has been limited by injuries to 51.1 innings across four MLB seasons. The southpaw has a career 5.96 ERA/3.67 FIP. San Francisco’s 40-man roster sits at 37 players.
