Triggs made the Giants' 60-man roster. He is not on the 40-man roster but will be available to provide bullpen depth this season. The 31-year-old righty had a lost 2019 season due to a hip injury. Triggs had a 5.23 ERA and 1.33 WHIP in 41.1 innings (nine starts) for the A's in 2018.
Triggs (hip) is listed as an available relief option for Thursday's Cactus League game against the Indians, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Triggs looks to be fully healthy again after he didn't pitch from mid-April onward last season due to a strained hip. The right-hander linked up with the Giants on a minor-league deal last September and has looked sharp through his first three Cactus League appearances, tossing three perfect frames while striking out four. Though he has prior MLB starting experience from his time with the Athletics, Triggs appears set to work exclusively out of the bullpen for San Francisco in 2020. If he's unable to win a relief job with the big club during camp, Triggs will likely report to Triple-A Sacramento to begin the season.
Triggs (hip) signed a minor-league contract with the Giants on Thursday, Baseball America reports. The deal likely covers 2020 as well, as Triggs is still recovering from a hip injury that has kept him on the shelf since mid-April. Across three big-league seasons with the Athletics (2016-18), the 30-year-old right-hander owns a career 4.53 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 148:50 K:BB in 163 innings (45 appearances, 27 starts).
Triggs (hip) was released by the Athletics on Thursday. Triggs hasn't pitched since April due to a hip injury, so he'll need to prove his health before he gets a shot elsewhere.
Triggs (hip) was designated for assignment by the Athletics on Wednesday. The move clears room on the 40-man roster for Tanner Roark, acquired in a trade from the Reds in a corresponding move. Triggs hasn't pitched since mid-April due to a strained hip. Between the injury, his age (30) and his mediocre 4.53 career ERA, he's not particularly likely to be claimed off waivers.
