Wisler (0-1) allowed two runs on one hit and a walk while lasting just a third of an inning as he was handed the loss in Tuesday's game against the Padres. Wisler came on to begin the seventh and was unable to preserve a 1-1 tie. The 28-year-old got the first out before walking the next batter and then serving up a two-run homer to Victor Caratini before being yanked from the game. Wisler has had a nightmarish start to the season, allowing six runs in 1.2 innings en route to a 32.40 ERA.
Wisler allowed one run on two hits over two-thirds of an inning in Monday's 3-2 win over the Padres. Wisler was charged with a blown save, as he was unable to protect a one-run lead in the sixth inning. Caleb Baragar relieved Wisler to finish the frame and earned the win after the Giants pulled ahead in the seventh. The 28-year-old Wisler has given up four earned runs in 1.1 innings spanning three appearances -- a brutal start to his first year as a Giant. Expect the right-hander to see lower-leverage assignments until he corrects course. He had a 1.07 ERA and 1.14 WHIP in 25.1 innings with the Twins last year, but his 3.34 FIP suggests that he didn't pitch quite as well as those numbers would indicate.
Wisler agreed to a one-year, $1.15 million contract with the Giants on Tuesday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports. Wisler was a surprise non-tender by the Twins last week. He threw 83 percent sliders last season with astonishing results, finishing with a 1.07 ERA, 3.35 FIP, 1.14 WHIP and 35:14 K:BB in 25.1 innings. Tyler Rogers is the only healthy Giants reliever who had any success in the late innings last season, so Wisler could find his way to high-leverage work, depending who else the Giants sign this offseason.
Wisler was non-tendered by the Twins on Wednesday, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports. The move is a bit of a surprise, as the right-hander had an impressive 2020 campaign with a 1.07 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 35:14 K:BB over 25.1 innings. Wisler enters free agency coming off the best season of his career.
Wisler threw two scoreless, hitless innings as the opener in Game 2 of Friday's doubleheader between the Twins and Tigers. He allowed one walk and struck out three. Make it five straight scoreless appearances for Wisler; he has a 0.93 WHIP and 13 strikeouts in that stretch (8.2 innings). The right-hander is putting together his best MLB season by a wide margin. The Twins have another doubleheader next week, so Wisler could get another opportunity to open before transitioning back to a traditional bullpen role.
