The San Francisco Giants acquired outfielder/catcher Blake Sabol from the Cincinnati Reds for a player to be named later and cash considerations.

What does it give the San Francisco Giants
In Sabol, the Giants get an incredibly versatile player who can line up in the outfield and also catch. As a Rule 5 draftee, he will need to remain on San Francisco's 26-man roster for all of the 2023 campaign.

What does it give the Cincinnati Reds
After selecting Sabol in the Rule 5 Draft from the Pirates organization, the Reds immediately sent him to the Giants for both a player to be named later as well as cash considerations. Cincinnati did well with this maneuver.

Fantasy impact
There is no fantasy impact here, as Sabol will likely serve a bench role in San Francisco in 2023. If he does not pan out, he will likely return to the Reds organization.
