Tom Murphy's time with the Giants was minimal.

The catcher was claimed on waivers by the Giants from the Rockies on Monday.

He joined the team in the Bay Area, and on Thursday, when the Giants had to cut the roster to 25, Murphy did not make the cut. Murphy, who the Rockies lost on waivers because he is out of options, was reportedly designated for assignment by the Giants.

He would have to clear waivers to be eligible for the Giants to send him to Triple-A Sacramento.
