Regularly throughout the 2017 season we sit down with Giants right-handed reliever George Kontos for Kontos Inside The Pen as part of The Sports Virus Inside China Basin podcasts.
Kontos is in his sixth season with the Giants, garnering World Series rings in 2012 and 2014. As an integral part of the San Francisco bullpen, he compiled a 2.90 ERA over his first five seasons with the Giants and has posted ERAs of 2.33 and 2.53 the past two seasons.
After pitching collegiately at Northwestern, Kontos was a fifth round draft pick of the New York Yankees in 2006. He made his Major League debut in 2011 with the Bronx Bombers. An early season trade in 2012 brought him to San Francisco, where he made a name for himself as a dependable set up man.
Don’t miss our insightful conversations with Kontos all season long.
