San Francisco, No. 1 pitcher announced by Waver to recruit
The San Francisco Giants embraced Jose Quintana, who was released from the Los Angeles Angels.
The Angels announced on the 31st (Korea time) that San Francisco will recruit Quintana as a wafer claim.
Quintana is a veteran left-handed pitcher who recorded double-digit wins for four consecutive years from 2016 to 2019. Quintana, who made only four appearances with the Chicago Cubs last year, made a fresh start after signing a one-year contract with the Angels as an FA this year for $8 million. But my grades were not good. He took the mound in 24 games and lost three games without winning, with an ERA of 6.75.
He was a starter until the end of May, but failed to win one game in nine appearances and was on the injured list due to shoulder inflammation after sluggish ERA of 7.22. He returned from injury and changed his post to a bullpen pitcher. In 10 games where he played as a bullpen, he had an ERA of 3.93. He started once against the Detroit Tigers on the 20th, but failed again with 6 runs in 1이닝 innings.
San Francisco ranks first in the western part of the National League, but is under heavy pursuit by the Los Angeles Dodgers. A situation that requires even a little power reinforcement.
Quintana is also likely to be a bullpen pitcher in San Francisco. Of course, he is a pitcher who can play as an alternative starter when the starting pitcher falls out due to injury.
