Report: Giants To Sign Jeff Francoeur

According to’s Ken Rosenthal, the sufficiently desperate Giants will soon sign outfielder Jeff Francoeur. Francoeur was recently cut loose by the Royals.

This season, the 29-year-old Francoeur has struggled badly: .208/.249/.322 with three home runs and six unintentional walks in 193 plate appearances. Across parts of nine major-league seasons, Francoeur owns a career OPS+ of 92, which isn’t adequate for a corner outfielder.
