Giants pick up Reds pitcher and add to a growing bullpen


Daniel Bartel-USA TODAY Sports


Add another name to the growing pile in the bullpen.

The Giants picked up Wandy Peralta from the Reds on Saturday, another lefty arm for a relief corps that will have 13 members when Peralta joins the team Monday.

In the corresponding move, the Giants placed Zach Green on the 60-day injured list with a left hip impingement.

Peralta, 28, had a 6.09 ERA in 39 appearances with Cincinnati this season and has seen time in the majors since 2016. He most recently entered games on Monday and Tuesday, combining to allow five runs in two innings.

For his career, the Dominican Republic product has a 5.00 ERA.

This is a tough way to end the season for Green, who, at 25, finally saw his major league debut in July after tearing up Triple-A Sacramento competition. He went 2-for-14 with the Giants while slashing .282/.380/.659 with the River Cats with 25 home runs. He last played in a game Aug. 15.
