Giants add Guillen in trade with Royals

Kansas City Royals

The San Francisco Giants added depth for their  stretch  run by acquiring outfielder  Jose Guillen from the Kansas City Royals for a player to be named later.

Guillen’s  three-year, $36 million contract is set to expire at the end of the year, and the Royals agreed to pay a portion of the pro-rated contract.

Guillen,  34,  was in the  midst of  his third season  with the Royals and was batting  .255 with  16 homers and 62  RBI in 106 games before being designated for assignment on August 5.

San  Francisco’s  current outfield  boasts  Pat  Burrell, Aaron  Rowand,  Nate Schierholtz and Andres Torres.

Guillen  last played  in the National League  in 2006, when he batted .216 and hit nine home runs in 69 games for the Nationals.
