The Giants are moving a struggling Sean Manaea to the bullpen. Manaea signed with the Giants in 2022 with a two-year, $25 million contract after coming off a career-worst season with the Padres. Manaea owns an ERA of 7.96 and 1.77 WHIP throughout eight starts. In his most recent start, he gave up eight runs, four of which were earned, to the Nationals in just 2 2/3 innings. According to Gabe Kapler, Manaea will now be used as a long relief pitcher.

“I only have myself to blame,” Manaea said. “At the end of the day, it’s going to be a blessing in disguise…..whenever those opportunities arise, I’ve just got to take them and run with it.” pic.twitter.com/OoUb4UWs7p
