Do the San Francisco Giants actually sign one of the big three closers?

(Michael Saltzman)  Yes. They have the money. With no guarantees that Greg Holland or Wade Davis would be healthy enough to close, the team will have to outbid teams on one of three.

(Chris Estrada)  Getting a closer is their biggest need and priority #1. The Giants have been linked to checking in on Wade Davis and Greg Holland. They are both coming off injuries which is a red flag. If the Giants pass on those two, you can bet they will enter the bidding war to land one of those three big closers.

(Taylor Corbin)  Mark melancon is the likeliest to be signed because of price.  Bobby Evans has been cited saying Jansen is a perfect fit for the team, so expect them to pursue him as well.  I wouldn’t be surprised if the Giants try to ink both closers and give the Mac Williamson/Jarrett Parker experiment a try.  Chapman has been mentioned as an option, but may cost the most.

(Daniel Sperry)  Absolutely. With the Dodger’s known lust for Chapman, why not make a run at Jansen? Only thing with him is he can still accept the Dodger’s Qualifying offer, which may be worth more this year than what he might get AAV. However, I see the Giants getting Melancon out of any of them.
