LHP Wandy Peralta

Wandy Peralta split his time in 2019 between the Cincinnati Reds and Giants.

Wile he struggled to a 6.09 ERA during his time with the Reds, he had a solid 3.18 ERA with five strikeouts in 5.2 innings after joining the Giants.

As another lefty, he would bring the balance to a clean 4-4 split between righties and lefties in the bullpen. He is also a safe option to start the year given the fact that he has four years of experience at the big league level.

He’s not as sexy as Rule 5 acquisition Dany Jimenez, who has struck out batters at an incredible rate in the minors. However, he is more likely to earn a spot on the roster than unproven players.
