MLB: San Diego Padres at San Francisco Giants Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

Hello and happy Thursday. I hope it’s a wonderful one for you.

The current international signing period is nearing an end, and the San Francisco Giants — as they have been all year — are remaining active. The incomparable @giantsprospects had news — and even a little video — on the four most-recent signings by the Giants, which pushes their total for this period over 50.

San Francisco reportedly added right-handed pitchers Brayan Alejandro Palencia, Yonathan Rafael Ochoa, and Jose Gabriel Gonzalez, along with catcher Claudio Jose Falcon (80-grade name).

Most international signings are low-budget moves, and a large percentage never even see the Minor Leagues. Still, the Giants making so many signings is further evidence of the current regime exploring all options for growth.

Thanks as always to @giantsprospects for always being on top of this valuable info.

Did Barry Bonds hit a home run today?

No he did not.
