Hunter Strickland (elbow) is playing in games at extended spring training in Arizona, according to San Jose Mercury News' Alex Pavlovic.

Strickland continues to work his way back from Tommy John surgery last May. The 25-year-old is viewed as a future closer candidate by some within the Giants organization, according to Pavlovic.

Giants purchased the contract of RHP Hunter Strickland from High-A San Jose.

The 25-year-old showed why the Giants are eager to keep him with a strong performance at San Jose, posting a 23/5 K/BB ratio while allowing just two earned runs over his 21 innings. Adding him to the 40-man roster guarantees he won't be taken in December's Rule 5 Draft.

Giants re-signed RHP Hunter Strickland to a minor league contract.

Strickland underwent Tommy John surgery in May and will continue to recover under the Giants' watch. The 24-year-old righty had a 0.86 ERA and 23/5 K/BB ratio in 21 innings at High-A San Jose before injuring his elbow.

Giants released RHP Hunter Strickland.

Strickland was designated for assignment by the Giants earlier this week despite his cool 0.86 ERA and 23/5 K/BB ratio in 21 innings at High-A San Jose. The 24-year-old should find a new organization rather quickly.

Giants designated RHP Hunter Strickland for assignment.

The move was made in order to clear room on the 40-man roster for Yusmeiro Petit. Strickland, 24, holds a 0.86 ERA over 21 appearances at High-A this season. It's possible he'll draw some interest on waivers.

Giants claimed RHP Hunter Strickland off waivers from the Pirates; optioned him to High-A San Jose.

Strickland was designated for assignment by the Pirates last week. The 24-year-old had a 3.70 ERA and 58/23 K/BB ratio in 87 2/3 minor league innings last season and will serve as organizational depth for San Francisco.

Pirates designated RHP Hunter Strickland for assignment.

Strickland posted a 3.70 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 58/23 K/BB ratio in 87 2/3 minor league innings last season. The 24-year-old probably won't draw much interest on waivers.

Pirates purchased the contract of RHP Hunter Strickland from Double-A Altoona.

Strickland, 24, had a 3.70 ERA and 58/23 K/BB ratio over 87 2/3 innings this season between High-A and Double-A. He was converted to the bullpen around midseason and has good stuff, so the Pirates aren't ready to give up on him yet.

Pirates acquired RHP Hunter Strickland and SS Argenis Diaz from the Red Sox for first baseman Adam LaRoche and cash.

Strickland has posted a 3.35 ERA and 51/13 K/BB ratio in 83 1/3 innings for Single-A Greenville this season. The right-hander boats a low-90s fastball, but needs to develop his secondary pitches if he'd like to enjoy a major league career. He doesn't turn 21 until September, so time is on his side.
