Giants Designate Jeff Samardzija For Assignment

With the Giants in playoff contention, if they make it they will be without the shark, as Jeff Samardzija, who was in the final year of his five year/$90M contract.

As a Giant, he went 33-45 with a 4.24 ERA, but 2020 was a disastrous year for the former Cubs All-Star. He posted a 9.72 ERA in only 16 1/3rd inning, with shoulder injuries.

The DFA comes with them having to leave him off of a potential postseason roster, thus placing him on unconditional release waivers despite his run with the team coming to an end. Samardzija says he plans to play in 2021.
