Giants Sign Recently Released Pitcher Following Strong Minor-League Numbers

The San Francisco Giants have made a recent addition to their organization by signing right-handed pitcher Phoenix Sanders to a minor-league contract.

Sanders, who was previously released by the Baltimore Orioles, wasted no time in finding a new team with the Giants.

He recorded an impressive 2.00 ERA, 1.00 WHIP, and 11 strikeouts across nine innings with the Orioles' Triple-A Norfolk.

While he currently resides with the Triple-A Sacramento team, his arrival brings potential opportunities to showcase his talents in the struggling Giants bullpen.

During his brief major league appearances last season with the Rays, the 27-year-old pitcher displayed promise, delivering a 3.07 ERA and recording 12 strikeouts over 14.2 innings.

However, Sanders encountered some struggles in the minor leagues in 2022, surrendering 22 earned runs across 27 outings.

Despite the challenges faced in the minor leagues, the Giants organization believes in Sanders' abilities and aims to tap into his potential.

With the Giants' bullpen in need of improvement, the signing of Sanders provides added depth and an opportunity for him to make an impact at the big-league level. As Sanders settles into his role with the Triple-A team, the Giants will closely monitor his progress and evaluate his readiness to contribute to the team's bullpen needs.
