Retired outfielder Randy Winn is getting an informal taste of coaching in the San Francisco Giants’ farm system to see if it’s something he would like to pursue on a full-time basis.
He is piling up nicknames nearly as quickly as he is piling up hits. Melk Man. Melky Way. And the old standby from his Yankees days, Leche—milk in Spanish.
The 36-year-old Winn was granted his release by the Baltimore Orioles on Monday after signing a minor league deal with the club in early February.
