Bond wins Giants' spring newcomer award


SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Despite being reassigned to Minor League camp on March 15, Giants infielder Brock Bond left a lasting impression.

The non-roster invitee won the team's Harry S. Jordan Award, given annually to the player in his first big league Spring Training camp who distinguishes himself the most with his performance and dedication. Bond, 27, was selected Tuesday in a vote among teammates, coaches and the athletic training staff.

Bond, 27, hit .435 (10-for-23) with two doubles, two home runs and six RBIs in 13 Cactus League games. Last year he hit .332 with a .422 on-base percentage for Triple-A Fresno.

The Harry S. Jordan Award is named in honor of a former longtime Minor League athletic trainer for the Giants. Previous winners of the award include Russ Ortiz (1998), Pedro Feliz (2001), Tim Lincecum (2007) and Brandon Belt (2011).
