The San Francisco Giants are giving outfielder Melvin Upton Jr. a fresh start. The two sides reportedly agreed to a minor league deal Saturday.
The Toronto Blue Jays released Upton at the end of spring training. He only batted .194 in 14 games.
The Giants hope Upton can provide some much-needed outfield depth and speed on the basepaths. Jarrett Parker is currently the Giants starting left fielder.
