The Giants have signed right-hander Nick Tropeano to a minor league deal and invited him to Spring Training. The pact includes a $1.1 million base salary with incentives that can raise the value to nearly $2 million. (Susan Slusser on Twitter)
Tropeano is a six-year MLB veteran with experience as both a starter and reliever. His big-league action came with the Astros, Angels, and Pirates, though he also spent time on the Yankees' and Mets' rosters. In 2020 with Pittsburgh, he allowed just two earned runs (1.15 ERA) over 15.2 innings while striking out 19 batters and walking four. Slusser adds that San Francisco feels confident that the 30-year-old can make the team out of camp.
