The Giants will land a powerful corner outfield bat

A corner outfielder with some pop is the piece of the puzzle that the San Francisco Giants have been in pursuit of for seemingly a decade.

They’ve had flashes in the form of Pat Burrell and Mike Morse out in left and of course Hunter Pence in right, but that pursuit will continue this offseason.

While I don’t believe the Giants will land someone like Marcell Ozuna or Nick Castellanos, I do think somebody like Corey Dickerson is a much more feasible target and he would obviously come at a cheaper price than some of the premier free-agent outfielders.

With Dickerson in left and Alex Dickerson either backing him up or platooning, the Giants should feel pretty safe in the corner outfield spots with Mike Yastrzemski manning right field.

After losing out on both the Bryce Harper and Giancarlo Stanton sweepstakes the past two offseasons, perhaps setting their sights a little lower will prove fruitful.
