San Francisco is another team that could be aggressive when it comes to Jake Odorizzi.

A team like the San Diego Padres could be a great fit for Jake Odorizzi, a young team on the verge of a deep playoff run that plays in a pitcher-friendly park and in need of starters to round out their rotation, but the Friars appear to be interested in a few overseas options and could certainly be landing spots for a Sonny Gray, Lance Lynn, or Blake Snell via trade.

But another NL West team in the San Francisco Giants could also be a good fit. The Giants probably won’t be as big of a World Series contender as the Mets or Blue Jays could be next year, with the Padres and Dodgers standing in the way in the division, but an expanded playoff field and an aggressive offseason could do the trick.

The Giants are one of the teams reportedly interested in Odorizzi and figure to be one of the more aggressive teams when it comes to adding starting pitchers to slot in behind Johnny Cueto and Kevin Gausman.

If the Giants can offer up the money and convince Odorizzi that they are building a winning ballclub, signing with San Francisco may be Odorizzi’s best opportunity for a lucrative payday.

With teams active in the pitching market early in the offseason, we may not have to wait long to see where Jake Odorizzi signs. He isn’t a starting pitcher that can lead a playoff rotation but has proven himself to be a reliable mid-rotation arm capable of providing a boost to a team in need.
