Every few years, the baseball gods smile on the Giants. Sammy last pitched in the majors ten days ago, going two innings as an opener at home, after which he was packed off to Sacramento.

Takes loss
June 28, 2021
Long (1-1) was tagged with the loss Sunday against Oakland after allowing four runs on four hits and three walks across five innings. He fanned three.
ANALYSIS
Long was unable to repeat what he had accomplished in his previous start against the Phillies where he logged his first quality start of the season, and he had problems finding the strike zone in this one -- he tossed just 54 of his 91 pitches for strikes.

Drafted by the Rays in the 18'th Rd in 2016, he was released after two decent seasons at Rookie and A-ball. He didn't pitch in 2018. He moved on to the ChiSox in 2019 and posted a 3.06 ERA with 112 strikeouts in 97 IP. He elected Free Agency after the 2020 season and was signed by the Giants. Four starts at Double-A and one at Triple-A, where combined he struck out 37 over 21 2/3 innings with a 1.99 ERA, and he finds himself in San Francisco where he tosses four dominant innings in his debut. Small sample size warning, but it looks like he might pitch backwards, using the curve (42%@ 76.6 mph) to set up the fastball (34.8% @93.1 mph) and change (15.9% @ 80.9 mph). It begs me to wonder what the Giants saw in this kid that both the Rays and White Sox didn't?
