Giants re-sign Jose Flores, Craig Whitaker

The minor-league free agent deals continue, as the Giants have re-signed Jose Flores and Craig Whitaker (via the incredible resource that is Baseball America’s Minor League Free Agent Database).

Jose Flores, a 24-year-old switch-hitting third baseman, spent the year in both San Jose and Richmond, where he posted an underwhelming .217/.295/.301 line in 415 plate appearances.

Craig Whitaker, 27, was the Giants’ first-round pick back in 2003. He’s pitched in 193 career games in the minors to date, mostly out of relief. He’s averaged just over a strikeout per inning in his career, but the walk rate (6.2 BB/9) isn’t pretty. It doesn’t appear that he pitched at all in 2011.
