“What has he done all year?” “Giants trading everyone except Rodon?”

The San Francisco Giants said goodbye to Trevor Rosenthal before he even threw a pitch for the team.

Rosenthal was traded to the Milwaukee Brewers for fielder Tristan Peters. The 20-year-old was recently promoted to Double-A and was the No. 19 Brewers, according to MLB Pipeline.

That #SFGigants and Brewers today inked a deal with OF Tristan Peters, who joined the Giants organization, in exchange for RHP Trevor Rosenthal

The Giants signed Rosenthal to a one-year, $4.5 million contract on July 21, but he never appeared for the team. Rosenthal was immediately placed on the Giants’ injury list with a hamstring injury and wasn’t to make itself felt until September.

Robertson has not served since signing a one-year, $11 million contract with the Oakland Athletics for the 2020 season. Due to an injury, he will be out for the whole of 2021. The Brewers added Rosenthal after the team traded Josh Hader closer to the San Diego Padres before the deadline.

The move meant the Giants were essentially paying a chunk of Robertson’s salary to secure a young prospect. Drafted in 2021, Peters had a .298 batting average early in his minor league career.

@SFGiant 🤣🤣🤣 Trading with Rosenthal is great.

With the Giants’ playoff hopes uncertain, fans seemed excited that the team had removed the veteran pitcher as a potential player from the tournament.

@SFGiant Good deal since Rosenthal is broken

Though still early in his career, Peters’ .306 batting average and 51 RBI in 90 games has wowed some San Francisco fans this season.

However, not all Giants fans were thrilled with how Deadline Day went.

@SFGiant The transaction of another (brilliant) giant… We take ourselves from ..🤔mediocre to…. 🤔mediocre..🤨

The team held onto its two top trade assets – Joc Pederson and Carlos Rodon – which could have brought better prospects. Rodon may step down from his $22.5 million deal after this season, and Pederson will be a free agent this winter.

@SFGiant They make the playoffs better and go on a 20-game win streak with Rodon and Peterson on the list, still LETS GOO

Instead, the team sold Darin Ruf and Curt Casali, bringing back five prospects and utility player JD Davis. Ruf, 36, and Casali, 33, brought young talent back to a team trying to find the line between competing and building for the future.

@SFGiant Who are these foos? 😡 Giving up reputation and Casali for it?

The San Francisco Giants were 4.5 games from the last National League wild card spot when they made those moves, and they’re unlikely to improve on that position.
