SAN FRANCISCO (AP) _ The San Francisco Giants sent left-handed reliever Troy Brohawn outright to Triple-A Fresno on Friday night to make room for newly acquired Scott Eyre.
The Giants claimed Eyre, another left-handed reliever, off waivers from Toronto on Thursday. Eyre was in the bullpen as San Francisco opened a three-game series against Pittsburgh.
Eyre went 2-4 with a 4.97 ERA in 49 appearances for the Blue Jays this season. He held left-handed hitters to a .218 average, making him very attractive to Giants manager Dusty Baker.
``He gets lefties, that’s his job,″ Baker said. ``We’ve needed somebody to do that consistently all season.″
