Giants Oddly Bring Back Reliever Waldis Joaquin

By Bryan Rose

Well, chalk this one up as unique.

If you remember, Joaquin was released by the Giants a few weeks ago after a very sub-par year at the Major and Minor league levels. The Chicago White Sox picked up the 23 year old arm off of waivers, but Joaquin declined their waiver and opted to become a free agent. And now, he’s back.

He’ll never be a super high quality arm out of the pen if and when he does make the major leagues, but, at 23 and somebody who strikes out over a batter per inning, he’s certainly a nice asset to have in your farm system.
