San Francisco Giants Sign Starting Pitcher

An interesting addition by the San Francisco Giants.

The Giants have signed starter Joe Ross to a minor-league contract with an invite to spring training.

Ross is an interesting low-risk signing by the Giants after he missed all of last season due to Tommy John surgery.

The twenty-nine-year-old posted a pedestrian 4.17 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, and 109 strikeouts over 108 innings and 19 starts back in 2021 for the Washington Nationals.

It's not yet clear when he'll be ready to return for the Giants, but, at worst, he should be able to make an impact in the second half of this season.

Over his six-year career, Ross holds a 4.26 ERA, 1.33 WHIP, and 403 strikeouts over 443.1 innings and 76 starts. He's played all six of his seasons with the Nationals.

Ross is a former first-round pick by the San Diego Padres in the 2011 MLB Draft.
