Monday Bobby Evans will no longer be the team's general manager.San Francisco Giants SFGiantsOFFICIAL: Senior Vice President amp;amp; General Manager Bobby Evans will step down from his general manager duties , effective immediately.#SFGiants jpaQwXf2TaHenry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle first reported the news.Giants CEO Larry Baer said the team expects Bruce Bochy to return for the 2019 season, according to Schulman.Since he is signed through 2019, the team plans to offer Evans another job within the organization, but he will also be free to seek employment elsewhere.San Francisco entered Monday with a 72-84 record Mookie Wilson Jersey , the fourth-worst in the National League.Evans has been with the Giants since 1994 but moved to the GM role in 2015 after Brian Sabean was promoted to executive vice president.While the team won three World Series titles in five seasons from 2010 to '14, things have gone south over the past four years.The squad has a 307-335 record in this stretch, with just one playoff appearance that ended with a National League Division Series loss in 2016. The 68-94 record from 2017 represented the Giants' worst season in over 30 years.While San Francisco dealt with a plethora of injuries over the past two years with Madison Bumgarner, Buster Posey , Johnny Cueto and others missing significant time, there was not enough depth to overcome these losses to find success on the field.Bob Nightengale of USA Today noted the Giants will try to replace Evans with two different hires:Bob Nightengale BNightengaleThe #SFGiants planing to hire twopeople for front office with Bobby Evans out: a Vice President of baseball operations and a GeneralManager. The Giants will be flooded with applicantsAlthough the team said it will immediately conduct a search for the next GM, there are conflicting reports about a potential top candidate.According to Nightengale, former Los Angeles Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti is the current favorite to take the job in San Francisco. However Gary Carter Jersey , Schulman reported that Colletti will not be taking the job. Atlanta Braves shortstop Dansby Swanson has been diagnosed with a partially torn ligament in his left hand after undergoing an MRI, the team announcedon Wednesday.Swanson is scheduled to undergo daily treatment through the end of the regular season and will be re-evaluated next week.The 24-year-old previously landed on the 10-day disabled list May 4 because of left wrist inflammation, but the injury only sidelined him 14 games before he returned May 19.When healthy, Swanson has been a key piece for a Braves team that has gone 89-68 en route to a National League East title.To date Dwight Gooden Jersey , he has slashed .238/.304/.395 with 14home runs and 59RBI. He also ranks sixthamong all shortstops with 11defensive runs saved, according to FanGraphs.In the event the Braves have to tread water without Swanson again, third basemanJohan Camargocould slide inas Atlanta's stopgap starter at shortstop.If Camargo isn't the replacement,Charlie Culbersonshould see some time at short with the Panamanian holding down his usual post at the hot corner.
