1. Re-Sign RHP Mike Leake
As previously mentioned, San Francisco loves to build from within and retain some of their core players. Although Leake did not necessarily shine in his nine starts with San Francisco, he did show plenty of promise; particularly in his complete game shutout of the Los Angeles Dodgers in his final game of the season.
As you can see, both Leake and San Francisco show strong interest in a reunion, but nothing is imminent.
For a guy that is looking for around a $50-70 million contract, he is a consistent middle-of-the-rotation starter who has topped 167 innings pitched in every season since his rookie campaign in 2010. The California-native may never be a Cy Young contender, but he will be the ideal Game 3 postseason starter for a contending team.
