Following the announcement, Jordan Hicks wish is fulfilled by the manager.

The San Francisco Giants have had a lengthy offseason, but it appears that they have finally made a headline deal. This team’s pitching rotation hasn’t been at its best lately. However, after bringing in Jordan Hicks, a former pitcher for the St. Louis Cardinals, things might now alter.

That’s right! San Francisco officially signed Jordan Hicks to a $44 million contract, per ESPN’s Jeff Passan. San Francisco plans to incorporate him in the starting rotation instead of the bullpen.

“BREAKING: Right-hander Jordan Hicks and the San Francisco Giants are in agreement on a four-year, $44 million contract, a source familiar with the deal tells ESPN. Hicks, 27, is expected to work as a starter after spending the majority of his career in the bullpen.”

This is a fantastic signing for the Giants. He’s gone back and forth between the starting rotation and the bullpen throughout his career. His numbers last season weren’t terrible either, as he finished 2023 with a 3.29 ERA, 81 strikeouts, and a 1.355 WHIP. His win-loss record wasn’t anything to gloat about (3-9) but he did have 12 saves on the season.

Hicks will be joining a rotation consisting of two young prospects the Giants’ organization are excited about, Kyle Harrison and Keaton Winn. Mix these three with some veteran leadership from Logan Webb and Alex Cobb, and San Francisco has a nice rotation for the 2024 season.

Hopefully, things improve for the Giants, as the franchise aims to get back to playoff contention sooner, rather than later. If it all works out, San Francisco could be a nice surprise playoff team.
