Bryce Harper

The Giants want him. Bryce Harper likes San Francisco. What’s $400 million anyways?

Michael Brantley

Brantley is a great fit for what the Giants should be pursuing this off-season. Because of injuries, his market may be limited and his price may be low. When healthy, he has proven to be a dynamic player. With the Giants lack of outfield depth, he would be given every chance to succeed in San Francisco with the fresh start he may need to receive a multi year deal next off-season.

We looked at Brantley more closely earlier this off-season.

All of this adds up to a player the Giants could plug into right field and the middle of their lineup.

Avisail Garcia

The Chicago White Sox are in a full rebuild, so it was surprising to see them non tender Garcia. The 2017 All-Star struggled in 2018, but the 27 year old outfielder still hit 19 home runs despite playing only 93 games.

The Giants need power in the worst way and Garcia can certainly provide power.

It has been clear from all of the reporting after the season that the team wants to get younger and more athletic. Garcia is still young. Brantley is more than just athletic and Harper is both. If the Giants want to shore up left or right field in December, there are certainly options available to them.
