The Giants have traded Ross Stripling and cash to the Athletics in exchange for utilityman Cox.

The Bay Area witnessed an unexpected swap between its neighboring baseball teams as the Giants and Athletics engaged in a trade on Friday.

In this deal, the Giants shipped off Ross Stripling, a seasoned right-handed pitcher, along with some cash considerations, to the Athletics. In return, they acquired Jonah Cox, a versatile player who can cover both the infield and outfield positions.

Stripling, who had a tough season with the Giants, struggled to find his rhythm after joining the team on a significant contract. Despite his experience, his performance fell short of expectations, with a winless record and a high earned run average (ERA). However, the Giants have decided to continue supporting him financially by agreeing to cover a portion of his salary as part of the trade.

On the flip side, Cox brings youth and potential to the Giants’ roster. At just 22 years old, he has already demonstrated his skills in various positions during his time in the minor leagues. His versatility and promising batting statistics make him an exciting addition to San Francisco’s lineup.

As both teams gear up for the upcoming season, Stripling is eager to showcase a new pitch he’s been perfecting, dubbed the “Deathball.” Joining him in Oakland will be his former Giants teammate, Alex Wood, adding a touch of familiarity to his new environment.

With this trade, both clubs aim to bolster their rosters in preparation for the challenges that lie ahead in the upcoming baseball season.
