A groin injury limited Beede, ranked San Francisco's No. 3 prospect by MLBPipeline.com, to 19 starts this past season with Triple-A Sacramento. He finished 6-7 with a 4.79 ERA and 83 strikeouts in 109 innings.

Rated eighth among the franchise's prospects by MLBPipeline.com, Garcia was named a midseason and postseason All-Star while hitting .272 with 17 homers and 65 RBIs for Class A Advanced San Jose. He proceeded to hit .282 in 22 games for Double-A Richmond. Garcia was recently named a "Rising Star" in the Arizona Fall League.

Acquired from Seattle to complete the Chris Heston trade, Herb posted a 2-3 record with a 2.76 ERA in 10 starts (one complete game) for Richmond in 2017. He struck out 48 batters in 65 1/3 innings and limited Eastern League batters to a .246 average.

Possessing intimidating size (6-foot-7, 245 pounds), Snelton divided his season between Richmond and Sacramento while compiling an 8-1 record with a 2.20 ERA and 71 strikeouts in 73 2/3 innings.

The Giants also designated infielder Orlando Calixte and outfielder Micah Johnson for assignment and outrighted right-handed pitcher Dan Slania to Sacramento. Infielder Engelb Vielma was claimed off waivers by Philadelphia. With the additions of Beede, Herb, Snelten and Garcia, the Giants' 40-man roster is full.
