After swinging and missing on a few other star free agents, the San Francisco Giants finally landed their offseason superstar last week. San Francisco came to terms with elite shortstop Carlos Correa for an indulgent 13-year, $350 million deal.

The Giants are preparing to officially add Correa to their roster but had to clear a roster spot first. Unfortunately, this resulted in the DFA of a young pitcher.

The team's Twitter account reported Monday afternoon that the team had designated Gregory Santos for assignment. Santos combined to make five appearances for the franchise since debuting in 2021, giving up 7 earned runs in just 5 2/3 innings of work.

He was originally part of the Boston Red Sox organization before landing in the Bay Area as part of the Eduardo Núñez deal in 2017.
