Giles slapped himself in the face after allowing the Yankees’ Gary Sánchez to a ninth-inning home run in 2018.

Elías has a 3.52 ERA in seven relief appearances and is 22-24 with a 3.96 ERA in 54 starts and 79 relief appearances with Seattle (2014-15, 2018-19, 2022), Boston (2016-17), and Washington ( 2019). ).

Padlo, 25, was traded from Seattle to San Francisco for cash on April 27 and then requested waivers from the Giants on June 11. He has played in 14 major league games for Tampa Bay, Seattle and San Francisco over the past two seasons and has been 2 for 12 in four games for the Giants this year.
