San Francisco Giants Sign Right-Handed Pitcher

Bringing him back.

The San Francisco Giants have signed pitcher Trevor Hildenberger to a minor-league contract with an invite to spring training.

Hildenberger has yet to appear in the majors since making a pair of relief appearances for the New York Mets in the 2021 season.

Last season, at Triple-A Sacramento, the right-handed pitcher appeared in just 6.1 innings, posting a 4.26 ERA with five strikeouts. For his minor-league career, Hildenberger holds a strong 2.30 ERA, 0.98 WHIP, with 253 strikeouts across 226.2 innings of work.

The thirty-two-year-old has found plenty of success in the minors, but he has yet to translate that over to the major-league level. He is a veteran of 133.2 major-league innings, sporting an underwhelming 5.52 ERA, 1.41 WHIP, and 133 strikeouts. He's spent time with the Minnesota Twins and the New York Mets.

At this stage of his career, Hildenberger is really not much more than organizational relief depth.

He is a former 22nd-round pick by the Minnesota Twins in the 2014 MLB Draft.
