Giants GM has funny comment about acquiring Kevin Pillar

Kevin Pillar

The Toronto Blue Jays are in full-on teardown mode, and the San Francisco Giants were happy to take advantage of that by acquiring Kevin Pillar from them in a trade.

The Giants traded Alen Hanson, Derek Law and Juan De Paula to Toronto on Tuesday for Pillar. Pillar is from Los Angeles and a Dodgers fan, so he’s having a hard time getting his friends and family to root for him since he’s now playing for the Dodgers’ biggest rival. Meanwhile, Farhan Zaidi, who acquired Pillar in the trade, feels similarly since he left his front office position with the Dodgers over the offseason to take the Giants job.

During a Thursday interview on KNBR, Zaidi joked that they would burn their Dodger gear together.

Pillar is 0-for-5 so far with the Giants and just 1-for-21 on the season, so he can only go up from here. He is also an excellent defender and should be able to help cover the extensive ground at AT&T Park.
