San Francisco Giants: Bay Area Aussies

To date two Australians have played Major League Baseball with the San Francisco Giants. The first was Damian Moss in 2003 followed by Travis Blackley in 2007, and West Australian pitcher Cameron Lamb is currently within the Giants Farm System. Traditionally the Giants have not been particularly active in Australia in terms of regularly signing amateur free agents. Nevertheless they have a decent alumni of Aussies, and the return of the Australian Baseball League may encourage the Giants to increase their scouting in Australia.
