The San Francisco Giants announced Monday that they have re-signed right-hander Anthony DeSclafani to a three-year contract. By ESPN’s Jeff Passan, the deal is worth a total of $ 36 million.

DeSclafani, 31, comes after a 2021 season where he hit a 3.17 ERA / 129 ERA + for the NL West champion Giants with a career-best ratio of 3.62 K / BB in 167 2/3 innings spread over 31 starts . As such, DeSclafani was a key member of the Giants’ rotation behind Logan Webb, and it was an organizational priority to bring him back to 2022 and beyond. Given that DeSclafani’s move forward last season was supported by increased use of his shooter, the Giants are likely to bet his 2021 wins are sustainable.

For his career, DeSclafani has a 104 ERA + across parts of seven major-league seasons. The Giants originally bought DeSclafani as a free agent before last season and signed him to a $ 6 million one-year deal.

Elsewhere, Passan, builds from an introductory report by Robert Murray of Fansided, reports that the Giants are close to concluding a deal that will bring left-back Alex Wood back on a two-year, $ 10 million contract. Wood, who turns 31 in January, recorded a 3.83 ERA / 107 ERA + in 26 starts for San Francisco last season. For his career, he owns an ERA + of 112 across nine MLB seasons.
