Adios, Austin Jackson

The Giants have just announced a deal to trade Austin Jackson, Cory Gearrin and Jason Bahr to the Rangers for either cash or a player.

They are also bringing up Steven Duggar and Ray Black. Hopefully, they will stop losing games. They've gone 1-5 this week.

Here is the top of Henry Schulman's story for the Chronicle:

The Giants, meandering around .500 all season and in the midst of five losses in six games, are making massive changes Sunday.
The team announced it has traded reliever Cory Gearrin, outfielder Austin Jackson and Class A pitcher Jason Bahr to Texas for a player to be named or cash.
The Giants are promoting top center-field prospect Steven Duggar and reliever Ray Black, the oft-injured right-hander who can throw 100 mph.

The moves not only free up roster space for two prospects who can help the team now, but also space under the luxury-tax threshold that will allow the Giants flexibility to improve the team by trade at the deadline.

Duggar, 24, was hitting .272 with a .775 OPS and playing outstanding defense in his second season at Triple-A Sacramento. He hit his 27th double of the season Saturday night.
