The San Francisco Giants have designated right-hander Eric Hacker for assignment, reports Hank Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle:

The Giants designated Hacker to make room on their roster for infielder Emmanuel Burris, who was added yesterday.

Hacker appeared in four games, including one start, with San Francisco this season. The 29-year-old allowed six runs on fourteen hits and two walks with eight strikeouts over nine and two-thirds innings of work.

Hacker’s 2012 campaign brings his major league innings total to eighteen, as he’s also pitched for the Pittsburgh Pirates and Minnesota Twins.

Spending a majority of the year with the Giants’ Triple-A affiliate, Hacker had pitched in twenty-six games, including twenty-five starts. Over 150 and one-third innings, he’s maintained an ERA of 4.01 with 6.2 SO/9 and 2.6 BB/9. He owns a career ERA of 3.94 over nine seasons in the minors.
