Giants hope Banks can provide depth

Monday, Jan. 31

SAN FRANCISCO — According to contract information obtained by MLB.com, the Giants have signed right-hander Josh Banks, who has pitched in the Major Leagues briefly in each of the last four years, to a Minor League deal.

Banks, 28, is 4-8 with a 5.66 ERA in 27 career appearances, including 19 starts, with Toronto, San Diego and Houston. A second-round pick in the First-Year Player Draft by the Blue Jays in 2003, Banks spent most of last season with Houston’s Triple-A Round Rock affiliate, finishing 9-12 with a 4.04 ERA in 27 starts.

Banks made one appearance with the Astros last season and absorbed the defeat, allowing six runs in four innings.

Depth? This guy doesn’t sound like a Major League Pitcher. Seems like he gives up a lot of runs…a bit like Wellemeyer. Not sure if there’s much to bank on there….
