MLB News: SF Giants Pull Off Two Trades

The San Francisco Giants were busy on Friday, pulling off a pair of trades, including sending out a pair of struggling pitchers, including one that they just acquired in a trade last month. 

Mitch White has had a rough go of it since leaving the Los Angeles Dodgers for the Toronto Blue Jays in 2022. He had a 7.11 ERA for the Jays last season, then after a mediocre start this season he went to San Fran and was hammered for seven runs in 5.1 innings in his three appearances (11.81 ERA). Now he's on the move again, to the Milwaukee Brewers. The Giants get cash considerations.

Former first-round pick in the MLB Draft, right-hander Daulton Jeffries had an even more troubling start to his Giants season, with a 17.36 ERA (!!), allowing 14 hits and 13 runs in 4.2 innings. The 28-year-old's Triple-A numbers were much better, with a 3.44 ERA over 18 1/3 AAA innings. He missed all of last season following his second elbow reconstruction surgery on Sept. 9, 2022. His recovery was so difficult, he even contemplated quitting baseball altogether. 

Jeffries now heads to the Pittsburgh Pirates in return for outfielder Rodolfo Nolasco. The 22-year-old Dominican prospect is still in A-ball; last season he displayed some power launching 20 HRs in 359 at-bats.
