|SF Giants trade for outfielder who excelled at Triple-A last year. The San Francisco Giants have been active at the top end of free agency, but that doesn't preclude them from operating at the margins. After signing center fielder Jung Hoo Lee for $113 million over six years, the Giants added another outfielder — although on a much smaller scale. Tuesday morning, the team announced they traded cash and a player to be named later for TJ Hopkins, who played 25 games for the Reds last year. The Reds selected Hopkins in the ninth round of the 2019 MLB Draft after he spent four years at the University of South Carolina.
