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.
