Red Sox promote slew of players from Pawtucket


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/17/2014) Ballyhooed Cuban outfielder Rusney Castillo is far from the only promotion from Triple-A Pawtucket made by the Red Sox on Wednesday. But he is certainly the most significant.

The team has also brought up left-hander Edwin Escobar, right-hander Heath Hembree, third baseman Garin Cecchini, outfielder Bryce Brentz and catcher Ryan Lavarnway.

(8/24/2014) The Red Sox have optioned pitcher Brandon Workman to Triple-A Pawtucket and recalled pitcher Heath Hembree.

Workman surrendered seven runs in 3 1/3 innings in his latest start, and the off performance has cost him a spot in the rotation. He's 1-8 with a 4.93 ERA and 56:28 K:BB ratio in 73 innings. Hembree has made one relief appearance with the major-league club, tossing four scoreless innings on Aug. 9.

Red Sox receive pair of pitching prospects for Peavy


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/26/2014) The Red Sox will receive pitching prospects Edwin Escobar and Heath Hembree from the Giants in exchange for pitcher Jake Peavy, ESPN.com reports Saturday.

Escobar entered the season as Baseball America's 56th-ranked prospect, but has struggled at Triple-A Fresno. He has a 5.11 ERA with 96 strikeouts and 37 walks in 111 innings at Fresno.

Hembree is the only one of the two with major-league experience, as he tossed 7 2/3 scoreless innings for the Giants last year. He has a 3.89 ERA in 39 1/2 innings over 41 appearances for Fresno this season.

The Giants also reassigned catcher Guillermo Quiroz, first baseman Mark Minicozzi and pitchers Brett Bochy and Adam Reifer to minor-league camp Friday.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Giants plan to recall eight players


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2013) The San Francisco Giants announced Monday they will be recalling eight players from the minors on Tuesday prior to a game at San Diego, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

The following players will be brought up from various levels of the minors: Infielders Nick Noonan and Ehire Adrianza; outfielders Francisco Peguero and Juan Perez; relievers George Kontos, Jake Dunning and Heath Hembree; and catcher Johnny Monell.

Heath Hembree 'close' to joining Giants


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/29/2013) 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
(5/16/2013) 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. 


Giants will call on Heath Hembree


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/11/2013) 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.

Hembree has opened the season at Triple-A Fresno with three scoreless innings. In his career, he is 2-2 with a 2.61 ERA and 1.12 WHIP in 113 relief appearances. He is also striking out 11.7 batters per nine innings and has recorded 58 career saves in 110 1/3 innings.

Hembree is considered the Giants' fifth-best prospect by MLB.com.


Trio of cut Giants could be back before long


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/15/2013) Among the cuts the Giants made Friday were the young trio of Roger Kieschnick, Heath Hembree and Gary Brown. Those Fantasy players casually familair with prospect lists may recognize Brown -- he was the team's first-round pick in the 2010 draft and could be the long-term answer in center field. This season seems to be the make-or-break one for Brown, who took a step back in power and average in 2012 after a promising 2011.

Hembree and Kieschnick, although lesser-known, could find their way to San Francisco sooner. Hembree struggled a little in 2012 as he jumped from High-A to Triple-A and battled an elbow strain, but his 4.19 ERA belied a solid 1.16 WHIP, and he struck out a batter per inning. Although there's little room for him in the closer mix at the major-league level, Hembree, who throws in the mid-90s, could eventually join the bullpen as a low-ratio, high-strikeout middle reliever.

Kieschnick is a big-swinging outfielder who hit .295 with 15 home runs in 234 at-bats last year. He missed three months after fracturing his left shoulder against an outfield wall trying to make a catch on a home run. With the Giants probably juggling Gregor Blanco and Andres Torres in left this season, it's not unlikely to think if they're hurting for runs, and Kieschnick gets off to a hot start, he could get the call. This is pure deep-league talk, but if I'm picking an NL-only reserve (or even a dynasty league reserve), I'd probably go for Kieschnick first out of these three players. 


Giants ship 20 players to minors


by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com
(3/15/2013) The San Francisco Giants completed another round of roster cuts Friday, optioning pitchers Dan Otero, Jake Dunning, Chris Heston and Sandy Rosario, shortstops Ehire Adrianza and Nick Noonan and outfielders Roger Kieschnick and Juan Perez to Triple-A Fresno. Pitcher Edwin Escobar was sent to Class A San Jose. The team also reassigned Brett Bochy, Boof Bonser, Steve Edlefsen, Heath Hembree, Michael Kickham, Mitch Lively, Shane Loux, Ricky Oropesa, Adam Duvall, Brock Bond and Gary Brown to its minor-league camp.
