Giants Sign Former Dodger Tony Watson

By Chandler Guadagnin

The Giants have officially added to their bullpen. San Francisco has added former Pirates and Dodgers relief pitcher Tony Watson on a multiyear deal to sure up the back end of their bullpen.

San Francisco has agreed with the lefty on a 2 year contract, worth $7-$9 million. The pact includes a player option for the 2020 campaign. This is big for the Giants, as it allows them to stay beneath the Luxury Tax threshold and avoid penalties for a third straight year.

Here are Watson’s statistics for the 2017 season, which he split between Pittsburgh and Los Angeles.

Watson is entering his age 33 season.
