Marrero signed a contract with the Orix Buffaloes of Nippon Professional Baseball in Japan, Jon Heyman of FanRagSports.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Marrero struggled during his time with the Giants, so rather than head to the minors to act as organizational depth, he'll head overseas to try to revive his career that way. The details of his contract are unknown at this time, but more likely than not, Marrero will try to return stateside in the next year or two.

Marrero cleared waivers Thursday and was outrighted to Triple-A Sacramento.

EDGE Analysis

Marrero was sent back to the minors earlier in the week after batting just .132 to start the season. He'll likely serve as an organizational depth piece unless he demolishes Triple-A pitching like he did last season in the Red Sox organization.

Marrero was designated for assignment by the Giants on Monday, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

The move was made to clear room for Drew Stubbs, whose contract was purchased from Triple-A on Monday. Marrero was struggling to start the year, slashing just .132/.171/.211 through 38 at-bats (15 games), prompting the Giants to seek an offensive upgrade in the outfield. It's unclear if he'll accept his assignment to the minors should he clear waivers.

Marrero is out of the lineup Sunday against the Rockies, Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Despite the Rockies bringing a left-hander to the hill in Kyle Freeland, Marrero will find himself out of the lineup as the Giants look to extract more offense by using Brandon Belt in left field. Marrero still looks like the team's primary option in left field, but his .135/.175/.216 batting line over 40 plate appearances this season shouldn't inspire much confidence from fantasy owners.

Marrero is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Royals, Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

For the time being, it looks as though Marrero will serve as the Giants' primary left fielder while Jarrett Parker (clavicle) remains on the disabled list, but after going 0-for-7 at the dish while starting the last two games, he'll give way to Aaron Hill in left field. If neither Marrero nor Hill are able to generate much production in the weeks to come, it wouldn't be surprising if the Giants explored external options to provide an offensive upgrade at the position.

Marrero will start in left field and bat eighth Sunday against the Rockies, Hank Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

With the placement of Jarrett Parker (broken clavicle) on the 10-day DL, there will be a lot of reps open in left field, and Marrero could see many of them in the short term. Provided the weather holds up for Sunday's game, Marrero will have started in two of the team's last three games. Aaron Hill or Brandon Belt are also capable of playing the outfield in a pinch, while the recently acquired Melvin Upon Jr., who is currently in the minors, could have a call-up awaiting him.

Marrero is not in the lineup Saturday against Colorado, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 28-year-old started in Friday's win over the Rockets and notched a pair of hits, including a home run, but he'll return to the bench Saturday as the Giants go with an outfield of Jarrett Parker, Denard Span and Hunter Pence.

Marrero got the start in left field Tuesday, going 0-for-3 in a loss to Arizona.

EDGE Analysis

The former top prospect tore the cover off of the ball in spring training, forcing his way into a left field platoon with Jarrett Parker to open the regular season. Marrero has come back down to earth, batting .059 (1-for-17) against major-league pitching. With the Giants picking up veteran outfielders Melvin Upton Jr. and Drew Stubbs this past week, the pressure is now on the 28-year-old to turn things around quickly or risk being removed from the 25-man roster.

Marrero is starting in left field and hitting seventh Thursday against Arizona, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

With the left-handed Robbie Ray taking the mound for the Diamondbacks, Marrero will start in place of Jarrett Parker. Marrero has played in two games and gone 0-for-5 to start the season.

Marrero will start in left field and bat seventh in Tuesday's game against the Diamondbacks, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, Marrero will get the nod over Jarrett Parker in left field with a lefty (Patrick Corbin) set to take the mound. The two are expected to platoon in left field for the beginning of the year.
