SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Giants left-hander Tony Watson has exercised his $2.5 million player option for 2020.

The 34-year-old Watson went 2-2 with a 4.17 ERA in 60 games for the Giants last season. Abad was 0-2 with a 4.15 ERA in 21 games for San Francisco.

The Giants also announced that right-hander Kyle Barraclough cleared waivers, was sent outright to Triple-A Sacramento and elected free agency.
