  • Giants' Sean Hjelle: Tagged for third loss

    Hjelle (3-3) allowed three runs on four hits while striking out one and walking none over one inning, taking the loss Sunday versus the Guardians.

    Hjelle has given up multiple runs in three of his last seven outings, taking two of his three losses this season in that span. The right-hander is now at a 3.83 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 46:6 K:BB through 44.2 innings while adding three holds. He sees very little high-leverage work as a multi-inning reliever, but his recent performance has offset his reliable control, as his groundball tendencies have led to too many hitters getting on base.

  • Giants' Sean Hjelle: Takes loss Saturday

    Hjelle (3-2) allowed eight runs (six earned) on six hits and a walk while striking out one over two innings to take the extra-innings loss versus the Dodgers on Saturday.

    Hjelle allowed a run in the 10th inning, but the Giants couldn't do anything more than pull even in their half of the frame. The Dodgers took over in the 11th, and Hjelle was left to take it on the chin, as he was seventh pitcher they used in the contest ahead of another likely bullpen game Sunday. Given the situation and opponent, it's understandable, but the poor outing still inflated Hjelle's ERA from 2.33 to 3.54. He's added a 1.03 WHIP and 40:6 K:BB with three holds over 40.2 innings as a multi-inning reliever this year.

  • Giants' Sean Hjelle: Snags third win

    Hjelle (3-1) allowed one run on one hit and struck out one over 1.1 innings to earn the win over the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

    Hjelle gave up a solo home run to Pavin Smith in the fifth inning, but Arizona never made a serious threat at a comeback. Hjelle ended up with the win because Jordan Hicks needed 92 pitches to get through 3.2 innings despite the Giants' strong offensive showing in support of their pitchers. All three of Hjelle's wins have come since May 17, and he's allowed three runs over 12 innings in that span. The right-hander is at a 2.77 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 25:4 K:BB through 26 innings this season, mainly serving as a long-relief option.

  • Giants' Sean Hjelle: Finishes off shutout of Phillies

    Hjelle (2-1) earned the win over Philadelphia on Tuesday night after tossing two scoreless innings and intentionally walking a batter.

    The Giants were without Camilo Doval and Ryan Walker Tuesday night because of their recent workloads, so Hjelle was called upon to work the ninth and 10th innings with the game at 0-0. He executed perfectly, getting through two frames by generating weak contact and coming out with a win after Luis Matos knocked in the winning run on a sacrifice fly. It was a huge result for Hjelle after allowing runs in back-to-back outings coming into the game. The 27-year-old now owns a 2.95 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 21:4 K:BB in 21.1 innings.

  • Giants' Sean Hjelle: Snags win in relief

    Hjelle (1-1) allowed three hits and struck out one without walking a batter over two scoreless innings to earn the win Friday over the Rockies.

    Hjelle was in the game when the Giants rallied ahead in the fifth inning, and they kept the lead the rest of the way. The right-hander has been decent in May, allowing two runs on 11 hits with a 14:0 K:BB over 10 innings across his last seven appearances. He's at a 2.81 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 17:1 K:BB through 16 innings this season as a multi-inning relief option for the Giants. Hjelle's also added two holds, but he has little chance of seeing consistent late-inning work.

  • Giants' Sean Hjelle: Takes loss Wednesday

    Hjelle (0-1) took the loss versus the Mets on Wednesday, allowing three runs on two hits and a walk while striking out two over 2.2 innings.

    Blake Snell (thigh) was placed on the injured list Wednesday, forcing the Giants to go with a bullpen game. Hjelle ended up with the most innings of the seven pitchers used, but he was unable to match his success from his season debut Sunday versus the Diamondbacks, when he pitched two innings of one-hit ball. The right-hander was on the shelf with an elbow injury to begin the season, and he'll likely serve as a long reliever for the majority of 2024.

  • Giants' Sean Hjelle: Taken off injured list

    The Giants activated Hjelle (elbow) from the 15-day injured list Saturday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    Hjelle has shown steady improvement during his rehab assignment, and in his last outing with Triple-A Sacramento on April 17, he struck out two while allowing one hit over one scoreless inning. The right-hander will return to the Giants' bullpen and figures to step into a low-leverage relief role. San Francisco optioned Kai-Wei Teng to Triple-A Sacramento in a corresponding move.

  • Giants' Sean Hjelle: Excelling on rehab assignment

    Hjelle made the fifth appearance of his rehab assignment Wednesday with Triple-A Sacramento, striking out two while allowing one hit over a scoreless inning.

    Hjelle was placed on the 15-day injured list prior to Opening Day due to a mild right elbow strain, but he appears to be bouncing back from the injury well based on how he's fared on his rehab assignment thus far. Between stops with Sacramento and Single-A San Jose, The right-hander has permitted two runs on five hits and one walk while striking out seven over 5.1 innings. Hjelle seems to be preparing for a relief role with the Giants once he returns from the IL, though if San Francisco elects to option him to Sacramento upon his activation, he could get stretched back out to start.

  • Giants' Sean Hjelle: Starting rehab assignment

    Hjelle (elbow) will begin a rehab assignment with Low-A San Jose on Friday, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

    Hjelle is slated for one relief inning in what will be his first game appearance since he was diagnosed with a partial UCL tear in his pitching elbow back in early March. The Giants likely want to build Hjelle up for a long relief role, so he figures to require a handful of rehab appearances.

  • Giants' Sean Hjelle: Shelved with elbow strain

    The Giants placed Hjelle (elbow) on the 15-day injured list Thursday.

    Hjelle has resumed throwing off the mound since being shut down earlier this month with a mild right elbow sprain, but he's still likely to face an uphill battle to make it back from the 15-day injured list April 9 when first eligible. At this stage, Alex Cobb (hip) seems to be ahead of Hjelle in his throwing progression, as Cobb threw 40 pitches in a minor-league spring training game last weekend. If Cobb beats Hjelle back from the IL, the latter would likely have to settle for a long-relief role or a rotation spot at Triple-A Sacramento upon being activated.

  • Giants' Sean Hjelle: Throwing bullpen session

    Hjelle (elbow) will throw a bullpen session Saturday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    The tall right-hander is ready to take the next step in his throwing progression as he works his way back from a partial UCL tear in his pitching elbow. Hjelle will need time on the injured list, but the hope is that he can avoid Tommy John surgery.

  • Giants' Sean Hjelle: Resuming throwing program

    Hjelle (elbow) will begin a throwing program Saturday, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

    Hjelle was shut down for a week after being diagnosed with a partial UCL tear in his right elbow. While the hope is that he will able to avoid surgery on the elbow, it's no sure thing as he attempts to ramp back up.

  • Giants' Sean Hjelle: Shut down for one week

    Hjelle received a second opinion on his right elbow Friday and will be shut down from throwing for one week, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    The 26-year-old was expected to be shut down for at least a couple weeks after being diagnosed with a UCL sprain earlier this week, so the second opinion appears to have brought encouraging news. Hjelle still figures to begin the season on the injured list, but the shorter shutdown should allow for a quicker return.

  • Giants' Sean Hjelle: Diagnosed with sprained UCL

    Hjelle will be shut down for a couple weeks after being diagnosed with a right elbow sprain, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    Hjelle had been in position to win either a long relief job or potentially even a spot in the rotation, but now he has what could be a long-term injury. He'll be re-evaluated following the shutdown period, presumably at which point a decision will be made as to whether he needs surgery.

  • Giants' Sean Hjelle: Could shift into rotation

    Giants manager Bob Melvin said Thursday that Hjelle is a candidate to move into the rotation with Tristan Beck (arm) sidelined, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    The Giants' starting pitching depth already seemed shaky and is now further thinned out with Beck out indefinitely due to an aneurysm in his upper arm. Melvin would prefer to keep Hjelle in long relief but now has no choice to consider him as a rotation option. The Giants also figure to look for help outside the organization. All 23 of Hjelle's major-league appearances have come in relief, but they've often covered multiple innings, and he was a starter almost exclusively in the minors.

  • Giants' Sean Hjelle: Preparing for long relief

    Hjelle is expected to function as a long reliever in 2024, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Hjelle came up through the minors as a starter, but all 23 of his major-league appearances so far have come out of the bullpen. The right-hander is not stretching out as a starter this spring, which signals he'll be a multi-inning option out of the bullpen. That role comes with little fantasy interest, especially since it doesn't seem like manager Bob Melvin will deploy an opener as often as his predecessor, Gabe Kapler.

  • Giants' Sean Hjelle: Back in big leagues

    Hjelle was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento on Monday.

    Hjelle was added to the active roster to replace Luke Jackson, who was placed on the paternity list prior to Monday's game against San Diego. Hjelle has appeared in one contest for the Giants in September, allowing two hits and striking out one across 1.1 scoreless frames.

  • Giants' Sean Hjelle: Sent back to Triple-A

    The Giants optioned Hjelle to Triple-A Sacramento on Thursday.

    Hjelle worked 1.1 scoreless innings of relief Wednesday against the Diamondbacks, but the 26-year-old right-hander carries a rough 8.10 ERA across 13 total major-league appearances this season. Tristan Beck will join San Francisco's bullpen in a corresponding roster move ahead of Thursday's series opener versus the Dodgers.

    Hjelle was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento on Wednesday.

    Hjelle has had a rough 2023, posting an 8.59 ERA with the Giants and a 6.03 mark with Sacramento. He can give them some length out of the bullpen, though, which is needed.
