Up­ton signs with Giants

Toronto Star - - SPORTS/SCOREBOARD -

SAN FRAN­CISCO— Melvin Up­ton Jr. signed a mi­nor league deal with the San Fran­cisco Giants on Wed­nes­day and the vet­eran out­fielder is work­ing out at ex­tended spring train­ing in Ari­zona. The deal had been in the works and Up­ton needed a phys­i­cal to fi­nal­ize the con­tract. It’s un­clear yet what role Up­ton might have and when he could join the Giants to of­fer some depth in the out­field. Up­ton, 32, was re­leased by the Blue Jays on April 2, af­ter com­ing to Toronto in a trade last sea­son.
