Giants finalize deal with Alex Cobb

The Giants and free-agent right-hander Alex Cobb agreed on a two-year, $20 million contract, the team announced on Tuesday night. San Francisco is in the process of rebuilding its rotation after starter Kevin Gausman agreed to a five-year deal with the Blue Jays on Sunday.

Cobb will earn $9 million in each of the next two seasons, and his contract includes a $10 million club option for the 2024 campaign. If the Giants decline the option, Cobb will be entitled to a $2 million buyout….

Cobb has been a solid starter throughout his 10-year career when healthy, but it’s the “when healthy” part that may be cause for concern as he goes into his age-34 campaign in 2022. His most recent stint on the injured list was due to a right wrist injury and he was limited to 18 starts last season, over which he posted a 3.76 ERA (119 ERA+) for the Angels.

Cobb was worth 1.7 BWar last year.

If he can produce that in 2022 and 2023, I have to believe the Giants will be more than happy with this signing (he's not Gaussman, but he can be above average when healthy).
