The Giants were awarded waiver claim on Royals LHP Jose Mijares. He'll be added to 40-man and join Giants big league club once he reports.— Andrew Baggarly (@CSNBaggs) August 6, 2012
Wait, what? This was a player I would have liked to see the Pirates trade for. He's a good lefty reliever, and he's under team control for two more years after this one. He also makes less than a million bucks this year. It looks like the Royals gave him up for free, which is just bizarre.
