Giants sign pitcher Haley to AAA Deal

Justin Haley has found a new home after spending time with the Samsung Lions of the KBO league, Haley is from Fair Oaks, California and went to Sierra College and was drafted out of Fresno State in the 2010 MLB Amateur Draft in the 46th round by the Cleveland Indians but didn't sign. He was then drafted by the Red Sox in the 2012 Amateur Draft by the Red Sox in the 6th round and then went to the Angels in the 2016 rule 5 Draft. The Padres purchased his contract but never appeared in the big leagues until he was traded to the Twins for Miguel Diaz

While with the Twins, the 28 year old right hander appeared in 10 games and collected 1 save with an ERA of 6.00 in 10 games totaling 14 strikeouts in 18 innings. Later in the year 2017 he was shipped back to the Red Sox going winless in 4 games for the Red Sox with a 4.70 ERA and collected 3 walks, 0 strikeouts in 7.2 innings. Haley then went to the KBO League and went 5-8 in 19 starts, he had a 5.75 ERA with 84 strikeouts in 87.2 innings of work. Haley was released from the Lions and funny, his roster spot was given to former Giant Mac Williamson.

His minor league numbers are significantally better than his MLB stats but that's because he has spent more time in the minors. Haley has a record of 43-54 in 154 games (141 starts) and a 3.42 ERA with 641 strikeouts in 737 innings of work.
