According to the San Francisco Giants’ team transactions page on MLB.com, the hated ones to the north came to an agreement on a minor league deal with a former Dodgers’ minor league pitcher. Right-hander Bryan Brickhouse spent the 2021 season at double-A Tulsa, going 1-3 with a 3.45 ERA in 19 games, 10 of which were starts.
The 29-year-old signed with the Dodgers after spending time in the Independent League in 2020.
A former third round draft pick by the Royals in 2011, Brickhouse has yet to make his major league debut. In 7 minor league seasons, he’s posted a 12-17 win/loss record with a 4.35 ERA over 292 innings pitched. He was with Kansas City from 2012-2019, missing parts of the 2013-2014 seasons recovering from Tommy John surgery. He missed the 2016 and 2017 seasons entirely while dealing with complications from the elbow surgery.
Kudos to Brickhouse for never giving up.
