Ex-Cards reliever Brebbia signs one-year deal with Giants

SAN FRANCISCO — The San Francisco Giants signed John Brebbia to a one-year, $800,000 deal Monday, taking a chance on the right-handed reliever coming off Tommy John surgery.

The 30-year-old Brebbia spent his first three seasons with St. Louis, but he was non-tendered by the Cardinals on Dec. 2. He is 6-foot-7 with a 3.14 ERA and two saves in 161 career games, all in relief.

Brebbia had right elbow surgery on June 3 and missed the pandemic-shortened 2020 season. The Giants said in a news release that he is progressing well with his rehab and throwing program this offseason.
