Good morning baseball fans!
San Francisco placed pitching prospect Ian Gardeck on waivers Saturday afternoon:
Gardeck will not pitch in 2016 as a result of season-ending Tommy John surgery, but he could prove to be a valuable addition to a club's roster moving forward.
Last season, at 25, Gardeck pitched well enough to earn a spot on the Giants' roster. Over 86.1 innings in relief in Single-A, he pitched to a 3.54 ERA.
It will be between 12 and 15 months before we see Sam Fuld again:

A Ryan Braun trade is "becoming more realistic," according to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal.
If the Yankees don't turn things around, Aroldis Chapman and Andrew Miller might be moved, Rosenthal adds.
