As we enter the final month of the 2019 MLB season, now seems like the perfect time for an overview of the San Francisco Giants roster and a look ahead at free agency.

The San Francisco Giants have a lot to figure out over the final month of the season.

With a 5.5-game deficit in the wild-card standings and five teams to pass in order to move into the second wild-card slot, the team’s postseason odds are dwindling by the day.

There’s still a lot to play for in September, though.

As the roster gets younger and players look to prove they deserve a spot in the club’s long-term plans, the final month could have a major impact on how the 2020 roster takes shape.

At the same time, the team will have some money to spend and could be active in free agency as they look to plug holes on the roster in hopes of another unexpected run at contention.

Will the focus more on rebuilding or focus more on the team’s short-term outlook?

Ahead we’ve taken a position-by-position look at the San Francisco Giants roster, with an overview of who could make sense as a potential offseason target.
