SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. — The San Francisco Giants announced today that they have claimed left-handed pitcher Wandy Peralta off waivers from the Cincinnati Reds. Peralta will report to the Major League team.

The 28-year-old has split the 2019 season between triple-A Louisville and Cincinnati, posting a 3.27 ERA in 12 relief appearances with the Louisville Bats and a 1-1 record with a 6.09 ERA in 39 outings with the Reds.

Signed by the Reds as an amateur free agent in 2009, Peralta has spent each of the last four seasons at the big league level with Cincinnati, posting a record of 6-7 with a 5.00 ERA along with 120 strikeouts in 151.1 innings in 177 career relief appearances.

To make room for Peralta on the 40-man roster, the Giants recalled infielder Zach Green from triple-A Sacramento and placed him on the 60-day injured list with left hip impingement.
