Notable Free-Agent First Basemen

  • Jose Abreu (received qualifying offer)
  • Justin Smoak
  • Edwin Encarnacion
  • Eric Thames
  • Mitch Moreland
  • Neil Walker
  • Ryon Healy
  • Mark Trumbo
  • Justin Bour
  • Yonder Alonso
  • Mark Reynolds
  • Ryan Zimmerman

Unless the Giants can find a taker for Brandon Belt on the trade market, it’s unlikely they go after any of these guys.

Eric Thames can play some corner outfield and Neil Walker has some versatility as well, so perhaps they would fit as multi-faceted bench pieces.

Notable Free-Agent Third Basemen

  • Anthony Rendon (received qualifying offer)
  • Josh Donaldson (received qualifying offer)
  • Mike Moustakas
  • Todd Frazier
  • Jedd Gyorko
  • Martin Prado

Same story here. Unless Evan Longoria is sent backing, he’ll be manning the hot corner again in 2020.

A veteran presence and power bat like Todd Frazier would be a nice addition at either corner spot if the team can find a way to trade one of its high-priced incumbents.
