Former outfielder Burrell may join coaching staff

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Giants general manager Brian Sabean said Sunday that he's still pondering whether to add former outfielder Pat Burrell to the team's stable of special assistants and part-time coaches.

Sabean said that Burrell's recent shoulder surgery has delayed a decision. Burrell, 35, was forced to retire this offseason after a right foot injury limited him to 92 games and a .230 average with seven home runs and 21 RBIs last year. In 2010, Burrell hit .266 with 18 homers and 51 RBIs to hasten the Giants' march to the World Series. His selective plate approach impressed the Giants and prompted their desire to add him to their staff.

"We hope to figure something out," said Sabean, who's contemplating "what suits his interests and helps us."

Other ex-Giants who are currently working within the organization in baseball operations include Will Clark, J.T. Snow and Jeff Kent.
