The San Francisco Giants have added another arm to their bullpen, securing left-handed pitcher Ethan Small from the Milwaukee Brewers. This move follows the Brewers’ roster adjustments after trading Corbin Burnes to the Baltimore Orioles, making room for new acquisitions.
Formerly a first-round pick by the Brewers in 2019, Small transitioned from a starter to a reliever during his tenure. While his Triple-A stats show promise with a 3.18 ERA and 61 strikeouts in 51 innings, his limited MLB appearances prompted Milwaukee to reassess his role.
Now, Small’s move to the Giants offers a fresh start. With a minor-league career ERA of 3.14 and 303 strikeouts in 252.1 innings, the 26-year-old brings potential to San Francisco’s bullpen.
For the Giants, acquiring Small represents a calculated risk with the potential for significant reward as they fortify their pitching staff for the upcoming season.
