(Michael Saltzman)  Best chance is Williamson, followed by a trade for J.D. Martinez and then Yoenis Cespedes.

(Chris Estrada)  Right now LF belongs to Mac Williamson and Jarrett Parker. The Tigers are rumored to be sellers this offseason. J.D. Martinez is a player the Giants could look into. Cespedes is also a possibility but he will not come cheap. If the Giants want to land Cespedes it will come down to how much they spend on a closer.

(Taylor Corbin)  As mentioned above J.D. Martinez would cover LF and serve as the bat upgrade needed if a trade were to occur. Two scenarios I see could happen.

1.  The Giants sign an elite closer or two forcing them to look at cheaper assets. Maybe Ian Desmond three-years at 45 million.

2. They miss out on a closer and dish out big-money for Cespedes or Bautista. Easily affordable if both sides can agree on years, if no elite-closer is inked.

(Daniel Sperry)  Cespedes would be the ideal fit for left. After that, J.D. Martinez via a trade as long as Panik isn’t involved.

And then the third option, which is the most likely option, is that Mac Willamson or Jarrett Parker is the every day left fielder next year. Out of those two, I think that Willamson emerges as that guy. So Mac Willamson should be your Left Fielder in 2017.
