Hello and happy Tuesday. And happy 47th anniversary to my wonderful parents.

On Monday, the San Francisco Giants announced that they had released infielder Abiatal Avelino.

Avelino was designated for assignment a few weeks ago, but cleared waivers and was reassigned to the Alternate Training Site in Sacramento. But he didn’t stay there for very long before getting released.

The right-hander made his MLB debut in 2018 for the Giants, and appeared in 10 games over the course of two seasons with San Francisco, hitting 5-18. His release marks the completion of the Andrew McCutchen trade, as Avelino was acquired from the New York Yankees, along with right-handed pitcher Juan De Paula in 2018. De Paula was subsequently traded as part of the package that landed the Giants Kevin Pillar, who was non-tendered in the offseason.


Did Barry Bonds hit a home run today?

Yes.

September 8, 1996: Against the Cincinnati Reds, Bonds hit a solo home run in the 6th inning off of Dave Burba. It tied the game 1-1, but the Giants would lose 8-3. It was his 37th homer of the year.

September 8, 2002: Against the Arizona Diamondbacks, Bonds hit a solo home run in the 4th inning off of Brian Anderson. It tied the game 1-1, and the Giants would win 3-1. It was his 42nd homer of the year.
