Right-hander Reyes Moronta Reaches One-year Deal With Giants

Righthander Reyes Moronta agreed to a $695,000, oneyear contract with the San Francisco Giants on Friday to avoid salary arbitration.

SAN FRANCISCO: Right-hander Reyes Moronta agreed to a $695,000, one-year contract with the San Francisco Giants on Friday to avoid salary arbitration.

The 28-year-old reliever didnt pitch during the coronavirus-shortened 2020 season as he worked back from shoulder surgery. There had been hope he might get into a game before the end of the season, when the Giants lost on the seasons final day to miss the playoffs.

Moronta is 8-9 over three seasons with San Francisco, going 3-7 with a 2.86 ERA over 56 2/3 innings and 56 appearances in 2019 after going 5-2 with a 2.49 ERA in 69 outings the year before.

Moronta earned $217,963 in prorated pay of his $588,500 salary during the shortened 60-game seasonr.

Versatile infielder Donovan Solano was San Francisco’s remaining arbitration-eligible player.

Were certainly hoping we can get those deals wrapped up this week, Giants executive Farhan Zaidi said last Saturday.
