Giants offseason

Giants acquire outfielder TJ Hopkins in trade with Reds

NBC Universal, Inc.

The Giants made another move to bolster their roster Tuesday morning.

San Francisco announced it has acquired outfielder TJ Hopkins in a trade with the Cincinnati Reds for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

No other details were immediately available.

Hopkins was designated for assignment last week when the Reds signed former Giants catcher Austin Wynns to a major league contract. Hopkins went 7 for 41 (.171) in his first 25 major-league games last season, with all seven hits being singles, and also slashing .308/.411/.514 in 94 games at Triple-A Louisville.

The Hopkins trade is the Giants' latest move in the past week, after they signed Korean outfielder Jung Hoo Lee to a six-year, $113 million contract and reportedly adding right-hander Devin Sweet and Tom Murphy.
