Returns to majors
OFSan Francisco Giants
September 14, 2019
Gerber was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento on Saturday, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
ANALYSIS
Gerber helped bring home a Pacific Coast League championship and will be rewarded with a return to San Francisco. The outfielder was 23 percent better than the average PCL hitter during the regular season, but it's uncertain how much he will play over the final two-plus weeks. Gerber is 27 and not a part of the team's long-term future.

2016 Fantasy Outlook
As a 15th round pick in 2014, Gerber lacks pedigree, and at 23 he was a bit older than the typical Low-A prospect dynasty league owners get excited about. However, his numbers in 2015 were hard to ignore. Gerber slashed .292/.355/.468 from the left side with 13 homers and 16 steals in 583 plate appearances in the pitcher-friendly Florida State League en route to being named the Tigers’ minor league hitter of the year. He was deployed primarily in right field and at DH for West Michigan, and along with Christin Stewart he will form a frightening middle of the order combo for High-A Lakeland in 2016. The standard qualifications about late-round college hitters who are old for their level apply here, but in a Tigers system that is heavy on pitching, Gerber qualifies as one in a small handful bats to watch next season.
