San Francisco Giants Sign Closer


It's a family reunion in The Bay Area. The San Francisco Giants are having a busy day, following their Michael Conforto agreement, they're now bringing in left-handed reliever Taylor Rogers for the back end of their bullpen.

Taylor joins his twin brother Tyler in the Giants 'pen with a 3-year, $33M contract. 

Rogers (Taylor) has been a solid closer in recent years, notching 28 saves for the San Diego Padres last season before they dealt him in a trade deadline deal for Josh Hader. In 2021 he was an All-Star with the Minnesota Twins, and in 2019 he saved 30 games in the Twin Cities. 

He has a 3.42 lifetime ERA with a 1.16 WHIP and 81 saves, striking out 10/6 batters per nine innings. 

How joins Camilo Doval for an elite one-two punch at the back end of games for the Giants. And Tyler Rogers is no slouch, either, having posted a 2.94 ERA in four seasons in San Francisco as an elite set-up man. 

Once a star in the Twin Cities, Taylor Rogers now teams up with his twin brother.
