Ryan Theriot 2B SF Jan 16 '13
CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Phillies and Giants are among the clubs interested in free agent infielder Ryan Theriot.
Theriot, 33, batted .270/.316/.321 with a .637 OPS in 384 plate appearances last season with the World Series champion Giants. He'll likely be used as a backup middle infielder wherever he lands, so his fantasy impact should continue to be minimal.

According to Andrew Baggarly of CSN Bay Area, the Giants are talking to free agent Ryan Theriot.
San Francisco would like to bring Theriot back as a utility infielder. The 32-year-old hit .270/.316/.321 in 384 plate appearances this summer for the World Series champs.

Ryan Theriot went 2-for-4 with an RBI single, accounting for the Giants only run in Saturday's loss to the Pirates.
On a day in which most of the Giant bats were stifled by James McDonald, Theriot came through with a pair of solid singles. He's done a nice job for the Giants over the first half of the season, hitting .280 (58-for-207) with a homer, 19 RBI and eight steals. As long as he's hitting near the top of the lineup and playing everyday, he does have some value as a middle infield option in deeper mixed leagues.

Ryan Theriot went 3-for-5, drove in two runs and stole a base Monday against the Angels.
It was his second straight three-hit game, raising his average from .250 to .275. Theriot is a weak option as a regular second baseman at this point of his career, but the Giants seem to like what he offers. He'll remain a fixture for a few more weeks at least.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy indicated that Ryan Theriot could be his regular second baseman going forward.
Theriot didn't start Thursday because Bochy thought he might be tired after a long flight from Arizona, where he was working out in extended spring training. He will be in the lineup Friday, and it sounds like he'll play ahead of the struggling Emmanuel Burriss most days. "We need another bat in the lineup," Bochy said. "He's a proven hitter. ... What's going to be important for us is getting production everywhere."

Ryan Theriot (elbow) is expected to be activated from the disabled list Thursday.
It's the first day he's eligible. Theriot is expected to battle Emmanuel Burriss for playing time upon activation. "It'll be competitive. I'll leave it at that," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. "We'll go with the hot hand. Theriot has a resume and a history of hitting."

Giants placed INF Ryan Theriot on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 9, with right elbow inflammation.
Theriot has already battled injuries and illness in the early part of the season, and was only hitting .179 with two RBI in his 56 at-bats while on the field. He should be back to his utility role within a couple of weeks, but shouldn't be owned in any fantasy leagues.
