SAN FRANCISCO -- Giving a veteran a fresh opportunity, the Giants traded right-hander Scott Proctor to the Baltimore Orioles for cash considerations on Friday.

Proctor will report to the Orioles' Triple-A Norfolk affiliate, but apparently won't confront as much competition as he would have faced had he stayed with the Giants organization and gone to Triple-A Fresno. Proctor's fate was sealed on Tuesday, when the Giants basically ended the competition for the lone opening on the pitching staff by purchasing right-hander Chad Gaudin's contract.

Proctor, 36, hasn't pitched in the Major Leagues since 2011, but gave himself more time to heal from Tommy John elbow surgery and excelled while pitching professionally in Korea to earn an opportunity at Giants camp. He recorded a 4.15 ERA in 13 spring appearances.

"I was happy for Scott," Bochy said, reacting to the trade. "He did all we asked."
