Giants sign Brian Burres and Emmanuel Burriss

The Giants reached a couple of agreements today with players of similar sounding names.

Emmanuel Burriss will reportedly have a larger role in the 2012 season as the Giants try to groom him as a potential super utility guy. Hank Schulman of the SF Chronicle speculates that the deal will be close to the league minimum. By signing now the Giants and Burriss avoided an arbitration hearing.

The Giants also signed Brian Burres to a minor league deal with a spring training invite. Burres was drafted by the Giants and was once ranked #22 in the system by Baseball America, one spot ahead of Jonathan Sanchez. He will likely be rotation depth at Fresno.
