Emmanuel Burriss Clears Waivers, Outrighted To Triple-A Fresno

The San Francisco Giants have hung on to one of their longer-tenured players after infielder Emmanuel Burriss cleared waivers Thursday and has been outrighted back to Triple-A Fresno, according to report.

Burriss was designated for assignment on Sunday after the Black and Orange picked up Marco Scutaro from the Rockies, and apparently wasn't a commodity worth grabbing by another MLB club, so back to the farm Burriss goes.

The 27-year old out of Kent State saw time in 52 games for the Giants this year, owning a meager .214/.273/.221 batting line in 144 plate appearances. A career .243 hitter and solid utility infielder and base runner, Burriss will provide some insurance down in Fresno, and could be a likely candidate to be brought back once the rosters expand on September first.
