Giants Claim Reliever Ryan Dull Off Waivers After A's Released Him

The A's announced on Monday the team has released right-handed pitcher Ryan Dull and was claimed off waivers by the Giants. San Francisco also confirmed the news. 

The Giants announced Dull will head straight to Triple-A Sacramento -- a place he's all too familiar with spending each season since 2015 pitching in.

This past season, the 29-year-old boasts a 5.45 ERA pitching in the Pacific Coast League with 50 strikeouts in 39.2 innings. His recent major league numbers don't exactly jump off the page with a 12.00 ERA across nine frames during three A's stints this season. 

Across five total seasons with the Green and Gold, Dull went 8-9 with four saves and a 4.08 ERA in 167 relief appearances.

Earlier on Monday, MLB Trade Rumors' Steve Adams reported the Giants will sign veteran pitcher Carlos Torres to a minor league deal. It appears the team wants that extra bullpen help with terms such as "NL wild-card spot" being thrown out into the universe.
