Giants release Kameron Loe: Best of luck, big guy, and thanks for the memory
And then there were 32 … players left in the San Francisco Giants’ camp.
Pitcher Kameron Loe requested — and was granted — his release by the Giants on Saturday.
Loe signed with the Giants after a solid performance in winter league. Despite his 2-0 record and 3.38 spring ERA, it became evident that Loe was not going to dislodge Yusmeiro Petit and David Huff in the battle for the long-relief job in the Giants’ bullpen.
As part of his deal, Loe could opt-out of his contract to seek opportunities elsewhere by Monday. He decided to get started on that pursuit early.
MoreSplashHits always liked Loe. Maybe it was because he was born in our hometown of Simi Valley, Calif.
Or maybe it was because he hails from the same alma mater, Cal State Northridge. Go Matadors!
Or maybe it was because Loe provided one of the more memorable, if not more disturbing, images of the spring, when the 6-foot-8, 245-pound Loe switched uniforms for the day with the 5-foot-11, 170-pound Tim Lincecum.
So as Loe looks for greener pastures, we leave you with one of the best tweets of the spring.
Best of luck Kam.
