Giants leave former first round draft pick off 40-man roster

SAN FRANCISCO — The Giants have added outfielder Alexander Canario and pitchers Kervin Castro, Camilo Doval and Gregory Santos to their 40-man roster and designated catcher Aramis Garcia, utility player Chris Shaw and pitcher Jordan Humphreys for assignment.

Shaw, 27, was drafted 31st overall out of Boston College by then-Giants general manager Bobby Evans. He played 38 games for the Giants over two years in 2018 and 2019, and hit .153 with seven RBI in 72 combined at-bats. Shaw, however, was never on the big league roster for this past 60-game season.

Shaw, Garcia and Humphreys are now all eligible for the Rule 5 draft, which takes place Dec. 10.

Canario, 20, had major shoulder surgery earlier this month to repair a labrum tear and won’t be ready for the scheduled Opening Day of the 2021 minor league season. The injury took place during the final week of the Giants’ instructional league.

Castro, 21, pitched for Salem-Keizer in the short season Northwest League in 2019, going 5-3 with a 2.66 ERA in 67 2/2 innings. Doval, 23, has been pitching in the Giants organization since 2016. He pitched for the San Jose Giants in 2019 and went 3-5 with a 3.83 ERA in 56 1/3 innings.
