Sean Hjelle dealing with right elbow sprain

Sean Hjelle is reportedly dealing with a right elbow sprain.

Fantasy Impact

The Giants pitching depth continues to take a hit. After it was announced that Tristan Beck suffered an arm injury, Hjelle was thought to be the favorite for the No. 5 starter role. Logan Webb, Kyle Harrison, Jordan Hicks and Keaton Winn are currently the only healthy starters for the Giants.

Sean Hjelle mentioned as potential No. 5 starter for the Giants

Giants manager Bob Melvin mentioned Sean Hjelle as a potential candidate for the team's Opening Day rotation.

Fantasy Impact

Tristan Beck was diagnosed with an aneurysm in his upper arm after he had been the favorite to be the No. 5 starter for the Giants. Hjelle is a candidate to be that final starter if the Giants don't sign Blake Snell or another starter off free agency.

Sean Hjelle optioned to Triple-A Sacramento

San Francisco Giants reliever Sean Hjelle has been optioned to Triple-A Sacramento.

Fantasy Impact

Hjelle was sent down to make room for Darin Ruf on the active roster after he returned to the Giants on a minor-league deal Saturday. The 25-year-old struck out 10 over six innings but also surrendered six earned runs and four walks in that time. He worked to a 5.76 ERA in 25 innings with the Giants last season.

Sean Hjelle strikes out eight in five scoreless innings Monday

Sean Hjelle did not factor into the decision after allowing four hits and one walk while striking out eight in five scoreless innings of Monday's 7-4 loss to the Padres.

Fantasy Impact

After San Francisco once again used an opener on Monday, and Hjelle took over in the second inning and dominated during his outing. The 25-year-old has looked good in this role as the season has come to an end, as this is his third straight outing allowing two earned runs or less. The righthander will cap off his 2022 season with a 1-2 record in 25 innings pitched, turning in a 5.76 ERA and a WHIP of 1.64.

Sean Hjelle picks up win Wednesday versus Rockies

Sean Hjelle tallied the win after allowing two runs (one earned) on two hits and two walks while striking out two in four innings of Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Rockies.

Fantasy Impact

Hjelle pitched the second through fifth innings on Wednesday and was able to record his first win of the year. In seven appearances, the righthander has allowed 16 runs in 20 innings pitched to go along with 20 strikeouts. The Giants have been utilizing bullpen games relatively often as the season has begun to wind down, and Hjelle has seen more looks as a result.
