The San Francisco Giants acquired infielder/outfielder Luke Williams from the Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday.
Philadelphia received minor league infielder Will Toffey and cash considerations in exchange.
Williams, 25, played in 58 games as a rookie for the Phillies last season and batted .245 with one homer and six RBIs.
The Giants placed left-hander Matthew Boyd (elbow strain) on the 60-day injured list to open a roster spot for Williams. Boyd isn’t expected to be available until June after undergoing flexor tendon surgery last September, when he was a member of the Detroit Tigers.
Toffey, 27, batted .217 with eight homers and 24 RBIs over 65 games between Double-A Richmond and Triple-A Sacramento.
The Giants also outrighted outfielder Austin Dean to Sacramento after the 28-year-old cleared waivers. San Francisco claimed Dean off waivers from the St. Louis Cardinals last November.
