Giants sign Travious Relaford (from 44th RD - 2011)

Fla-Giant likes this signing and has said Relaford has quite a bit of upside so would have to assume he has more value than the typical 44th RD pick...

 

(from wjtv.com)

Relaford, who was a Baseball America preseason All-American pick, hit .280 with seven doubles and stole five bases on the season for the Eagles. He was recently named Best Junior College Defender for all community and junior colleges in the country by Perfect Game.

more after the jump...

 

The Hinds CC website shows these stats for him last spring:

Tee Relaford     .280 avg.   (28x100)    .280/.410/.350     7 doubles, 0 triples, 0 HR     19 BB-7 KO   8 SB-0 CS

  Fielding stats:      49 PO     88 A    18 Errors   -    .884 fielding %

 

so it appears he has good speed but limited power at this point.

Cousin of ex-Giant Desi Relaford according to Baseball America.

 

from Baseball America:

Travious hit just .280 for Hines this spring with seven extra-base hits and remains raw in all phase offensively. Defensively, he has the athleticism and arm strength for shortstop, though his skills need refinement.

 

also was quite a basketball prospect at point guard according to ESPN.

not sure what the signing bonus is yet.
