|Diamondbacks claim Roger Kieschnick |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(4/4/14) The Diamondbacks have claimed outfielder Roger Kieschnick off waivers from San Francisco. Kieschnick struggled in 2013 and in exhibition play this spring, leading him to be designated for assignment by the Giants.
Kieschnic hit for decent power in the minors, but had no home runs in 84 at-bats last season.

|Roger Kieschnick impressing in early showing |

(8/7/13) Giants outfielder Roger Kieschnick has been able to earn consistent playing time early since his callup with his strong play, and he started and had multiple hits for the second game in a row Tuesday against the Brewers.
"I think the most impressive thing about Roger right now is he seems comfortable up here," manager Bruce Bochy told MLB.com. "He's not nervous, he's not in awe of anything. He looks like he's swinging the bat the way he was when he came up here from Fresno."
Kieschnick finished Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Brewers with a 2-for-4 line, while striking out once. Kieschnick has appeared in six of eight games since being recalled, starting five and hitting .381 in 21 at-bats.
|Roger Kieschnick worth NL-only consideration |
|by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(8/6/13) Giants outfielder Roger Kieschnick is in a pretty nice situation right now. The 26-year-old outfielder is hitting .353 in his first five games, playing for a team that is 10 1/2 games out of the second wild card spot and going nowhere.
His main roadblock to more playing time is Jeff Francoeur, a nine-year veteran who is hitting .234 in 15 games with the team. And even if they do platoon the rest of the way, Kieschnick has the better part of it, getting to face the right-handed pitchers.
Kieschnick showed off a big bat in the minors, with double-digit home runs in four of his five minor league seasons. In 2012, Kieschnick hit 15 home runs and 14 doubles over just 234 at-bats (he missed time with a broken hand). Before his call-up this season, he had 13 home runs and 27 doubles in 374 at-bats.
He may be stuck in a time-share with Francoeur the rest of the way, but that's probably going to be a worst-case scenario. I'm expecting a .260-.270 average, with 7-9 home runs, 8-10 doubles, and maybe a few steals mixed in the rest of the way. If something happens to Francoeur, those numbers could go up, and Kieschnick could find his way into deeper mixed league relevance.
