Giants Claim Ashton Goudeau From Orioles

The Giants have claimed right-hander Ashton Goudeau off waivers from the Orioles, per announcements from both teams. San Francisco placed righty Dedniel Nunez on the 60-day injured list with an elbow sprain in a corresponding move.

The 28-year-old Goudeau spent only a few months with the Orioles, who claimed him from the Pirates in December – less than a month after Pittsburgh claimed him from Colorado. Goudeau made his major league debut in Colorado last year and allowed eight earned runs in 7 1/3 innings. However, he logged a much better 2.07 ERA with fantastic strikeout and walk percentages (30.1 and 4.0, respectively) over 78 1/3 frames with the Rockies’ Double-A affiliate in 2019.

Nunez, 24, joined the Giants as a Rule 5 pick from the Mets last December. He had been competing for a spot in the Giants’ bullpen, but his injury means Tommy John surgery may be a possibility.
