Giants add Anderson, DFA Barraclough

The San Francisco Giants made another off season move Tuesday afternoon. The club claimed left hander Tyler Anderson off the Colorado Rockies waivers and designated Kyle Barraclough for assignment in a corresponding roster move. Anderson spent the most of 2019 on the injured list to repair a cartilage damage in his left knee. Before he went down with the injury the University of Oregon alum was 0-3 in 5 starts with a 11.776 ERA striking out 23 batters in 20 2/3 innings. He was originally drafted by the Twins in 2008 but signed with Colorado when t-hey signed him in 2011 MLB draft. He has gone 18-24 in 73 games in his MLB career, totaling 367 strikeouts and a 4.69 ERA while throwing 397 innings. The 29 year old has a 25-14 (67 starts) record spanning over 5 minor league seasons with 306 strikeouts in 371.1 innings and a 2.45 ERA.

The San Francisco Giants had to make a roster spot for Anderson so they designated reliever Kyle Barraclough for assignment. The 29 year old right hander can win a World Series ring if the Washington Nationals can beat the Astros in game 7 tonight. Barraclough was claimed off the Nationals waivers at the beginning of August and time in AAA Sacramento going 0-1 in just 7 games for the Rivercats with a 11.12 ERA with 9 strikeouts in just 5 2/3 innings. He appeared in 10 games for the Giants going 0-0 with 10 strikeouts in 8 innings of work while owning a 2.25 ERA.
