Mike Fontenot Update

By bullpenbrian at 08.25.2010 Leave a comment.

Since joining the Giants via trade on August 11, Mike Fontenot is 6-for-21 at the plate (.285) with three runs scored and zero RBI. He’s played seven games, starting five–3 at second base and 2 at shortstop.

All totaled between Chicago and San Francisco, Fontenot has played 82 games making 45 starts–32 at second base, 9 at shortstop and 4 at third base–batting .284 with 1 home run and 20 RBI.

In exchange for Fontenot the Cubs received speedy Single-A center fielder Evan Crawford, who’s currently projected as a back-up major league outfielder in the coming years.

Fontenot, the 19th overall pick in the 2001 draft, spent six seasons with the Cubs after joining the club as part of the Sammy Sosa deal with Baltimore in 2005.
