The San Francisco Giants have added another pitcher to their rotation.

On Monday, the team announced they’ve signed right-hander Luke Jackson to a two-year deal worth $11.5 million. The deal includes a team option for the 2025 season.

Jackson missed the entire 2021 season following Tommy John surgery last spring.

“The Fort Lauderdale, FL native turned in one of his best seasons in 2021 as he helped Atlanta win the World Series. Jackson was 2-2 with a career-low 1.98 ERA over a career-best 71 games,” the Giants said in a press release. “He recorded 70 strikeouts and 29 walks in 63.2 innings of work. His 31 holds during the regular season were second-most in the Majors. He made 11 appearances for the Braves during the 2021 Postseason, striking out nine batters in 8.2 innings while holding opponents scoreless in nine of his 11 appearances.”

The team also announced a trade with the Philadelphia Phillies, exchanging right-handed pitcher Yunior Marte for Erik Miller. The 24-year-old left-handed pitcher was drafted in 2019 and ranked “as Phillies seventh-best prospect according to MLB.com.”

This is the fourth pitcher the team has signed this off-season. Luke Jackson joins Taylor Rogers, Sean Manaea, and Ross Stripling as the newcomers to the Giants rotation.
