How are members of the 2023 SF Giants doing on their new teams?

8. John Brebbia

A decently integral part of the Giants’ pen from 2021-23, Brebbia brought a beard with him that only Brian Wilson could have rivaled.  In Brebbia’s three-year Giant career, he threw 124.2 innings of 3.83 ERA ball (4.38 xFIP), appearing as an opener for the team 21 times and typically pitching middle relief in most other appearances. 

Brebbia now finds himself on the south side of Chicago, toiling away for the hapless White Sox.  He’s only gotten into four games so far, giving up one run in 2.2 innings of work, but he deserves mention because he was one of the more important Giants to depart over the offseason.

9. Jakob Junis

Junis also deserves mention because of his significance with the Giants over the past two years before moving on to Milwaukee this year.  He only made a single start before landing on the IL due to a shoulder impingement, though, so there’s not a ton to say about him just yet. 

He threw four innings of one-run ball against the Twins back on April 2nd, striking out four against one walk.  Junis was excellent in his long-relief and spot-starter role with the Giants, a role that they’re hopeful Keaton Winn, Sean Hjelle or another internal option may inherit once some arms begin returning from injury.
