Jewell was part of the Giants organization last season, but didn't make the major league squad and didn't pitch in the minor leagues with the season canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

In 31 appearances out of the bullpen in his big league career, Jewell has a 7.75 ERA over 38 1/3 innings. He also is 25-43 with a 4.78 ERA in his minor league career.
