Former Biscuits pitcher Carlos Hines has been traded to the San Francisco Giants.
The Devil Rays swapped Hines for reliever Tyler Walker on Friday. Hines was with the Biscuits from their inception until last June, when Tampa Bay promoted him to Class AAA Durham.
The Rays soured on Hines this spring and moved him off their 40-man protected roster. The 25-year-old was in his sixth season in Tampa Bay's system.
