I honestly did not think we would see Kensuke Tanaka in a Giants uniform this season as a second baseman, much less an outfielder. He struggled so badly at the plate in spring training and made so many errors. But the Giants felt the need to do something, and Tanaka actually rebounded and played fairly well for Triple-A Fresno. So, today, the club purchased his contract and designated Cole Gillespie for assignment.
