Farhan Zaidi named San Francisco Giants president of baseball operations

The San Francisco Giants have hired Major League executive Farhan Zaidi as the club's president of baseball operations, President & CEO Larry Baer announced today. 

Zaidi and Baer will be available to the media at a news conference tomorrow at AT&T Park at 1:00 p.m. 

The San Francisco Giants have hired Major League executive Farhan Zaidi as the club's president of baseball operations, President & CEO Larry Baer announced today. 

Zaidi and Baer will be available to the media at a news conference tomorrow at AT&T Park at 1:00 p.m. 

"We set out to find one of the best minds in baseball and Farhan's many accomplishments and expertise exceeded our expectations," said Baer. "Farhan is widely viewed as one of the top executives in our industry and we are thrilled to have him lead the next chapter of Giants Baseball."

"I am delighted to return to the Bay Area and to join one of the most storied franchises in the game," said Zaidi. "I have watched the Giants from afar and I have great respect for the organization's culture and many accomplishments. I am excited about this new opportunity and I'm looking forward to getting right to work."  

Zaidi spent the last four years as the Los Angeles Dodgers' General Manager after joining the club in November 2014. Under Zaidi's leadership, the Dodgers have won four consecutive division titles while advancing to the National League Championship Series the last three years and the World Series the last two seasons. During that four-year span, the Dodgers have posted the second-best winning percentage in all of baseball (.584, 379-270).  

Prior to joining the Dodgers, Zaidi spent 10 seasons with the Oakland Athletics, where he started as a baseball operations analyst in 2005 before being promoted to director of baseball operations in 2009, and assistant general manager/director of baseball operations in 2014. With the Athletics, his primary responsibilities included evaluating and targeting players in the amateur draft, free agent and trade markets.

The Athletics reached the playoffs during Zaidi's final three seasons with the club. (2012-14)

Zaidi, 41, earned his bachelor of science degree in economics from Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1998 and a Ph.D in economics from the University of California, Berkeley in 2011. He currently resides in Los Angeles with his wife, Lucy.

San Francisco and the baseball community mourns the loss of San Francisco Giants legend and Hall of Famer Willie McCovey

The San Francisco Giants issued the following statement on behalf of Willie McCovey's family and the organization:

It is with great sadness that we announce that San Francisco Giants Legend and Hall of Famer Willie McCovey passed away peacefully this afternoon at the age of 80 after losing his battle with ongoing health issues. 

The San Francisco Giants issued the following statement on behalf of Willie McCovey's family and the organization:

It is with great sadness that we announce that San Francisco Giants Legend and Hall of Famer Willie McCovey passed away peacefully this afternoon at the age of 80 after losing his battle with ongoing health issues. 

"San Francisco and the entire baseball community lost a true gentleman and legend, and our collective hearts are broken," said Giants President & Chief Executive Officer Laurence M. Baer. "Willie was a beloved figure throughout his playing days and in retirement. He will be deeply missed by the many people he touched. For more than six decades, he gave his heart and soul to the Giants - as one of the greatest players of all time, as a quiet leader in the clubhouse, as a mentor to the Giants who followed in his footsteps, as an inspiration to our Junior Giants, and as a fan cheering on the team from his booth."

Willie's greatest passion was his family and our thoughts and prayers are with his beloved wife, Estela, and his daughter, Allison, and her children Raven, Philip, and Marissa," continued Baer.

"I am grateful that my father passed peacefully surrounded by his family and friends while listening to his favorite sports channel," said Willie's daughter Allison McCovey.

"Every moment he will be terribly missed. He was my best friend and husband. Living life without him will never be the same," said Willie's wife Estela McCovey

Willie is also survived by his sister Frances and his brothers, Clauzell and Cleon.

A public celebration of Willie's life will be announced at a later date. Fans who wish to offer their condolences may send letters to the McCovey family care of San Francisco Giants, attention Forever 44, 24 Willie Mays Plaza, San Francisco, CA 94107. Or they may email Forever44@sfgiants.com.

Since 1980, the Giants have awarded the Willie Mac Award, which is given to a Giants player who best exemplifies the spirit and leadership consistently shown by McCovey throughout his career.

McCovey was a six-time All-Star, a National League MVP (1969) and National League Rookie of the Year (1959) winner. He was a three-time NL home run leader (1963, 1968, 1969) and twice led the league in RBI (1968, 1969). At the time of his retirement he ranked second to Lou Gehrig in career grand slams (18) and hit the most homers (231) ever at Candlestick Park. "Stretch" also established a Major League record for most seasons played (22) as a first baseman. In addition, he became the fifth player in MLB history to earn back-to-back home run and RBI titles, hitting 36 homers and driving in 105 runs in 1968 and then capturing NL Most Valuable Player honors with 45 home runs and 126 RBI in 1969. McCovey had hit more home runs (521) than any other left-handed hitter in National League history before Barry Bonds passed him in 2001. His 521 career home runs are tied with Frank Thomas and Ted Williams for 20th on baseball's all-time list. 

McCovey made his Major League debut with the Giants on July 30, 1959, and went 4-for-4 against Hall-of-Famer Robin Roberts of the Philadelphia Phillies, hitting two triples and two singles. He then went on to win National League Rookie of the Year honors while posting a .354 batting average with 13 home runs and 38 RBI in just 52 games for the Giants. The Mobile, Alabama native spent many years at the heart of the Giants' batting order along with fellow Hall-of-Famer Willie Mays. His best year statistically was 1969, when he batted .320 with 45 home runs and 126 RBI en route to being named the National League Most Valuable Player.

After four decades in baseball, McCovey retired following the 1980 season after a 22-year big league career (18 with the Giants). He ended his playing career with a batting average of .270 along with 1,229 runs scored, 353 doubles, 46 triples, 521 home runs and 1,555 RBI for the Giants (1959-1973, 1977-80), San Diego Padres (1974-76) and Oakland Athletics (1976). He was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1986 in his first year of eligibility, appearing on 346 of 425 ballots cast.

In honor of the Hall of Fame great, the portion of San Francisco Bay behind right field at AT&T Park is named "McCovey Cove." In 2003, the Giants unveiled a statue of McCovey at China Basin Park, which is located across from AT&T Park on the southern shoreline of McCovey Cove.

McCovey had spent the past 18 years as a senior advisor to the team.

Giants exercise options for LHP Madison Bumgarner and IF Pablo Sandoval

The San Francisco Giants have announced Monday they have exercised club options for LHP Madison Bumgarner and IF Pablo Sandoval for the 2019 season. Additionally, the Giants have reinstated C Buster Posey, IF Pablo Sandoval, RHP Jeff Samardzija, RHP Johnny Cueto and RHP Julian Fernandez from the 60-day disabled list.

Bumgarner, 29, posted a 6-7 record with a 3.26 ERA in 21 starts in 2018. The left-hander posted a 1.63 home ERA, the fourth-lowest in the Majors and tossed 22.0-consecutive scoreless innings at AT&T Park from August 7-September 28. He missed the first two months of the year with a displaced fracture of the fifth metacarpal on his left hand.

He missed the first two months of the year with a displaced fracture of the fifth metacarpal on his left hand.

Drafted by the Giants in the first round (10th overall) of the 2007 First-Year Player Draft, Bumgarner is 110-83 with a 3.03 ERA in 255 career appearances and contributing to the Giants' three World Series championships (2010, 2012 and 2014) during his 10-year career. His 1,591 strikeouts in a Giants' uniform are fifth-most in SF Giants history and he's 15 strikeouts away from tying Hall-of-Famer Gaylord Perry (1,606 career strikeouts) for fourth-most by a Giant since 1958. His 110 career victories are third-most in SF-era history.

Sandoval, 32, appeared in 92 games in 2018 and hit .248 with nine home runs and 40 RBI. The utility man saw action at first base (24 games), second base (two games), third base (36 games) and came in to pitch the 9th inning in Game 1 of a doubleheader vs. the Dodgers on April 28. Sandoval hit .323 (20-62) with 30 RBI with runners in scoring position while batting .286 (8-for-28) as a pinch-hitter in 2018. His season was cut short after being placed on the 10-Day DL on July 30 with a right hamstring strain.

The switch-hitter has posted a .281 average with 134 home runs over his 11-year career with San Francisco and Boston. Sandoval also contributed to the Giants' three World Series championships (2010, 2012 and 2014).

With Monday's transactions, the Giants' 40-man roster now stands at 36.

San Francisco Giants mourn the passing of former longtime broadcaster Hank Greenwald

The San Francisco Giants issued the following statement on behalf of the Greenwald Family:

It is with deep sadness we announce that former Giants broadcaster Hank Greenwald passed away peacefully yesterday afternoon at the age of 83 after a long battle with heart and kidney complications.

The San Francisco Giants issued the following statement on behalf of the Greenwald Family:

It is with deep sadness we announce that former Giants broadcaster Hank Greenwald passed away peacefully yesterday afternoon at the age of 83 after a long battle with heart and kidney complications.

"Hank was a broadcasting legend throughout the Bay Area and was a huge part of the Giants throughout his 16 seasons as our play-by-play announcer. He was the key link to our fans listening at home and brought our game to life through the radio," said Giants President and CEO Larry Baer. "Hank and his family continued to stay connected with the Giants following his retirement and he often could be found talking baseball or taking in a game on the broadcast level of AT&T Park. He will be deeply missed and our thoughts are with Carla, Kellie and Doug."

"My dad's goal was to be a Major League Baseball broadcaster, the San Francisco Giants provided him with that opportunity and in turn he provided Giants fans everywhere with many exciting moments," said Hank's son Doug Greenwald.

Hank spent 16 seasons overall as the play-by-play voice of the Giants on KNBR (680 AM). He was the voice of the Giants from 1979-86 before departing for a two-year stint with the New York Yankees radio team. He returned to the Giants in 1987 until his retirement from the club in 1996. A 1957 graduate of Syracuse University, Hank did radio play-by-play for the University of San Francisco Dons basketball, Syracuse football, Hawaii Islanders of the Pacific Coast League and the Golden State Warriors. Hank also served as the press box public address announcer for the Super Bowl. Following his retirement from the Giants in 1996, Hank did some broadcasting for CBS radio and served as a part-time television broadcaster for the A's during the 2004 and 2005 seasons.  

He is survived by his wife Carla of 48 years and their children Kellie and Doug. A celebration of Hank's life is pending.
