3 veteran relievers the SF Giants should consider to solidify the back of the bullpen

2. Robert Stephenson

Another option for the SF Giants bullpen is Robert Stephenson. Born in Martinez, California, Stephenson would match the profile of a Bay Area acquisition like J.D. Davis, Joc Pederson, or Mitch Haniger.

He has been a decent relief pitcher as well. Last year with the Pirates and the Rays he recorded a 3.10 ERA in 52 and 1/3 innings pitched.

He appeared in 60 games and would be a guy similar to the Walker or Luke Jackson mold who ideally you would bring into the game in the 6th inning or so if the starter was unable to go deep into the game.

The Bay Area connection could help the Giants sign him to a one year deal to add some depth to their bullpen.

3. Ryne Stanek

One final option could be the right hander Ryne Stanek. Last season with the Astros he recorded an ERA of 4.09 in 50 and 2/3 innings pitched.

While that does not jump off the page, his 2022 stats do. He had an ERA of 1.15 in 54 and 2/3 innings for the Astros. That is a pretty remarkable ERA to maintain over the course of a full season. His FIP that season was 3.02 so luck definitely factored into it, but he could still be an interesting relief option for the Giants on a one year deal.

These are three bullpen options for the SF Giants. While the bullpen seems set to a certain extent, these additions could help solidify the bullpen as the Giants head into the season.
