The San Francisco Giants have designated 27-year old switch-hitting infielder Emmanuel Burriss for assignment to make room on the roster for Marco Scutaro. Burriss played in 52 games for the Giants this year and he was 28 of 131 (.214 avg, .494 OPS) with 15 runs scored, 0 homers, 6 RBIs and 5 stolen bases. He played in 274 games in his five years with the Giants and he was 174 of 715 (.243 avg, .574 OPS) with 87 runs scored, 1 homer, 41 RBIs and 40 stolen bases. It will be interesting to see if Burriss clears waivers.
UPDATE: (8/2/2012) - Emmanuel Burriss has cleared waivers and he has accepted an outright assignment to AAA.
