The Giants’ first round pick Bryce Eldridge reached a big milestone in his pro career, hitting his first pro home run down in Arizona.  Wade Meckler picked up his first home run at Triple-A, while Aeverson Arteaga had a huge day in Eugene, and Scott Bandura made his San Jose debut and made it memorable, getting on base five times and picking up a home run.

Roster Notes:

A lot of Monday moves in the Giants system came to light.  As Casey Schmitt moved to Triple-A, infielders Donovan Walton and Will Wilson headed to Double-A.

In addition to the Triple-A news, outfielder Michael Gigliotti was released.  The 27-year old had played this season in Sacramento, hitting .240/.377/.353, and had played in Richmond the season before.  He was claimed off waivers from the Tampa Bay Rays after the 2021 season.

Meanwhile, in the name of upward mobility, the Giants promoted 2023 3rd rounder shortstop Cole Foster, 7th rounder outfielder Scott Bandura, and recent indy league signee RHP Cody Tucker from Arizona to San Jose.  And one of them had a huge debut.
