Federowicz was designated for assignment by the Giants on Monday, Amy Gutierrez of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

Federowicz was dropped from the 40-man roster to make room for Micah Johnson, who was recently claimed off waivers from the Reds. The 30-year-old backstop hit .231/.286/.692 in 13 at-bats last season. He'll take a spin through waivers to determine his landing spot for next season.

Federowicz entered Tuesday's blowout loss to the Diamondbacks in the fourth inning, going 2-for-3 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Bruce Bochy pulled his starters early in the game after the club fell into an 8-0 hole after just two innings, and Federowicz took advantage of the rare playing time for his second homer of the year. The 30-year-old has been used primarily as a pinch-hitter since joining the majors Sept. 1, so there isn't much to see here from a fantasy perspective.

The Giants will call up Federowicz from Triple-A Sacramento on Friday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Giants designated Jae-Gyun Hwang for assignment to make room for Federowicz, who'll put together reserve work as a catcher and perhaps first baseman.

Federowicz was designated for assignment Tuesday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

This is the corresponding move with Buster Posey returning from the 7-day DL. If Federowicz clears waivers, he'll likely wind up with Triple-A Sacramento.

Federowicz was added to the Giant' 25-man roster Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

With Buster Posey headed to the 7-day disabled list, Federowicz will serve as the Giants' backup catcher until he is back. With a capable Nick Hundley ahead of him, it's unlikely that Federowicz will see much playing time during his brief stint with San Francisco.

Federowicz agreed to join the Giants on a minor league deal Tuesday, Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 29-year-old backstop has mashed Triple-A pitching over the past few years, but his career .194 batting line in the big leagues limits his value significantly. As long as Buster Posey is behind the dish in San Francisco, Federowicz will likely have to settle for an organizational depth role.

Federowicz was outrighted to Triple-A Iowa on Monday, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Like he has in past seasons, Federowicz offered virtually nothing at the plate for the Cubs during his limited time in the big leagues. He'll likely continue to be an organizational depth piece moving forward.

Federowicz was called up by the Cubs on Tuesday, Patrick Mooney of CSN Chicago reports.

EDGE Analysis

Federowicz bit the bullet and accepted an outright assignment after being designated for assignment in June, and his patience has been rewarded as he will come up to join the expanded September roster. A .194/.245/.297 career hitter at the major league level, he will merely provide depth behind Willson Contreras, Miguel Montero and David Ross.

Federowicz cleared waivers and will join Triple-A Iowa, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Miguel Montero, David Ross, and now Wilson Contreras on the roster, there was no room to hold Federowicz, especially with his lack of offensive talent. The 28-year-old will head back to Triple-A and will likely remain there barring injuries at the major league level.

Federowicz was designated for assignment Friday.

EDGE Analysis

The Cubs called up Wilson Contreras, who has been hitting .353 with Triple-A Iowa, and in turn demoted the struggling Federowicz. The 28-year-old catcher was only hitting .191 in his 13 appearances this season.
