First baseman Justin Smoak was designated for assignment again this month when he was cut loose by the San Francisco Giants on Monday after outfielder Alex Dickerson was activated from the paternity list.
Smoak also was designated for assignment Sept. 3 by the Milwaukee Brewers before landing with the Giants.
Smoak played in just three games with the Giants, going 0 for 6 with two strikeouts. He batted just .186 with five home runs and 15 RBIs for the Brewers, who signed the 11-year veteran to a $5 million deal this season.
