Hello and happy Friday.

Today is the deadline for the San Francisco Giants to protect players from the Rule 5 draft. To me, the three most interesting names — interesting meaning players the Giants should be invested in, and might actually be of interest for another team to draft — are Alexander Canario, Tyler Cyr, and Camilo Doval.

Canario is extra interesting, given the injury and subsequent surgery he just had.

According to the Giants website, they only have 39 players on the 40-man roster, so they can protect one player without getting rid of anyone. If they decide to protect multiple players, Chris Shaw would seem to be the most likely roster casualty.
