|Heath Hembree 'close' to joining Giants |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(5/29/13) Giants pitcher Heath Hembree is close to joining the major-league team, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
"I think he’s close, I do," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Wednesday. "He’s been throwing the ball well. We know he’s close."
Hembree has posted a 3.68 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 25:5 K:BB ratio in 22 innings of relief at the Triple-A level this season.
|Heath Hembree a solid dynasty league add |
|by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(5/16/13) Giants farmhand Heath Hembree has been stellar as the closer for the team's PCL affiliate in Fresno. In 19 innings, Hembree has a 1.89 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and has struck out 20. Owned in two percent of leagues, Hembree, 24, is a likely candidate to serve as the team's closer some day, but could help a Roto team with strikeouts and low ratios when he's called up.
Owned in two percent of leagues, Hembree -- who has a 2.56 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 11.6 K/9 in more than 218 minor-league appearances -- doesn't merit consideration outside of deeper Dynasty leagues but is worth keeping an eye on into the summer, as a call-up gets him in the bullpen and some kind of Sergio Romo catastrophe (or even a deadline deal to a rebuilding team like Houston) could vault him into the saves mix. There's a lot of speculation there, but Hembree has shown he has the talent to get batters out and can thrive in a late-game situation.

(4/11/13) Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Thursday he's impressed with pitcher prospect Heath Hembree and said Hembree will be in line for a promotion to the majors when the team needs relief help, according to CSN Bay Area.
