The deadline was Midnight EST or 9:00PM PST, but the Giants have announced their roster additions and those details are starting to pour out. At the beginning of the day, the Giants had thirty guys on their forty-man roster (thirty-one if you include Angel Villalona)
- Nick Noonan, Edwin Escobar, Jake Dunning, Chris Heston, and Juan Perez all added to the 40-man and protected against the Rule 5 Draft
Eric Hacker had his contract purchased to the Major League club Brian Wilson has been optioned to the 60-day DL Dan Otero has been optioned to Triple-A Fresno
**Material struck out was a repeated report sent out by the Giants
What this all means is that the Giants have thirty-five men on their forty-man roster, so they have some space to play with going into free agency and Spring Training. In case you were wondering, young guys like Gary Brown are still protected against the Rule 5 Draft so there’s no chance he gets scooped up by another team at the Winter Meetings.
