Giants acquire left-handed reliever Banda from Rays for $75K

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The San Francisco Giants acquired left-hander Anthony Banda from the Tampa Bay Rays for $75,000 on Monday, adding depth to their bullpen.

Banda went 1-0 with a 10.29 ERA in four outings with one save over seven innings for the Rays before being designated for assignment Sunday. Tampa Bay needed a spot on its 40-man roster.

He gave up five runs on five hits with three walks in one inning earlier Sunday against the Marlins in Miami.

San Francisco’s payment to the Rays is due on Sept. 15.

Also Monday, the Giants placed outfielder Joey Rickard on the 60-day injured list with left elbow inflammation.
