Giants add Kiesh, Culby, Otero, Correa, Graham and....Villalona???

So far, no link, just posts from Baggs on Twitter.

In preparation for the Rule 5 draft in a couple of weeks, the Giants protected six players on the 40-man roster while dropping two.  They are:

OF Roger Kieschnick

OF Tyler Graham

IF Charlie Culberson

RP Charlie Culberson Dan Otero (Too tired to proofread, apparently)

RP Hector Correa

IF Angel Villalona (No kidding)

The team released RP Darren Ford and RP Waldis Joaquin.

Baggs suggests that the Villalona move is probably a procedural thing.  He also confirms that Villalona still needs to get a U.S. Work Visa before he can start his career again.

Wow...I did not see that coming.

This is Joaquin's second release from the Giants' 40-man roster.  He was claimed off of waivers by the ChiSox last time around, but refused and returned to the Giants as a minor league free agent before the start of the 2011 season.  Meanwhile, Ford gets dropped for a player that might be just as fast, and has a bit more of a hitting upside.  Just a little bit...but then, Ford had just about none upside, so that's a low bar.

Correa's name might surprise a few, but he'll surprise a few more.  The kid is pretty talented.
