San Francisco Giants Claim Pitcher

The San Francisco Giants have claimed Jharel Cotton off of waivers from the Minnesota Twins.

Cotton cleared waivers three times already this season, but this time around, the Twins weren't so lucky. They now have lost a strong part of their pitching depth, and Cotton will be aiming to continue his strong season in the Bay Area.

Cotton has been nothing short of reliable when in the majors this season, and the truth is made apparent when taking a gander at his stats. In 25 games as a Twin in 2022, he had a 2-2 record and 2.83 ERA. That is all you can ask from a reliever. Let's see if he can have the same results as a Giant from here.
