After winning the National League West in 2021 with a franchise-record 107 wins, the San Francisco Giants took a step back in 2022, finishing third in the division with an 81-81 mark.
This offseason, with plenty of payroll space and an aging roster that needs some offensive punch, the San Francisco Giants are certainly a team to watch as the MLB Winter Meetings kick off on Sunday in San Diego. But which players could be a good fit in San Francisco? Let’s look at some possibilities.
3 players for San Francisco Giants to target this offseason
Come on, you knew Judge was going to be on this list, and he’s certainly not only the most coveted free agent available this offseason, but one that the Giants reportedly have a reasonable chance of landing.
For Judge to leave the New York Yankees, it’s not only going to be about the money, but also about San Francisco’s ability to “put a winning team around him that can get to the postseason,” said MLB insider Jon Morosi. That’s going to mean that Judge can’t be the only target for the Giants (other options coming later in this article), and it’s going to mean that San Francisco is going to have to be very aggressive this offseason to not only land him, but other roster pieces as well.
Judge would be a game-changer for the Giants, bringing power to the lineup and a new face to the franchise. Who else should San Francisco add? Let’s look at the mound.
