The Giants have designated right-hander Angel Rondón for task, Andrew Baggarly of the Athletic was amongst these to relay. The transfer clears a 40-man roster spot for infielder Tommy La Stella, who’s again after a stint on the COVID-19 injured checklist.
San Francisco nabbed Rondón off waivers from the Cardinals two weeks in the past, and he’s made simply two Triple-A appearances since that time. He’ll now lose his roster spot and maybe by no means seem in an enormous league sport with the Giants, as he’ll both be traded or waived inside the subsequent week.
Rondón, a 24-year-old righty, has three massive league appearances beneath his belt. He tossed two frames over two outings final season, and he’s made one five-inning aid look with St. Louis this yr. He’s spent the vast majority of the yr in Triple-A, working as a swing choice for the Cardinals high affiliate in Memphis. Rondón threw 49 innings in 18 appearances (5 begins) there, posting a 4.04 ERA with an honest 24.2% strikeout proportion however an elevated 15.3% stroll fee.
That is the second of three minor league choice years for Rondón, so any workforce that acquires him may stash him in Triple-A as a depth arm for the subsequent season and a half. If he passes by way of waivers unclaimed, he’d stay with the Giants high affiliate in Sacramento as a non-roster participant.
