The SF Giants seem to be fairly set with Opening Day fast approaching. After the team signed starting pitcher Blake Snell, they appear to be set. There are still a large number of former SF Giants available in free agency though.

12 former SF Giants who remain without a team prior to Opening Day

Free agency is always a crap shoot for players. Whether they get signed depends on the market, team needs, team budgets, all factors that are out of a player's control.

While most of the former SF Giants available in free agency are not fits for the 2024 Giants, it is still interesting to take a look at the names still out there and wonder what their future in the MLB will look like.

Let us begin with a first class SF Giants legend whose name was brought up as a potential signing after the Giants sustained several injuries to their starting pitching staff.

Former SF Giants available in free agency: SP Madison Bumgarner

The legendary left-handed former ace of the Giants Madison Bumgarner is still a free agent. He was a huge part of all three World Series titles, most notably in 2014, and will go down as one of the best World Series pitchers of all time.

The Arizona Diamondbacks released him last season after a really poor tenure that saw him struggle mightily. Since then, he has remained unsigned.

The lefty still wants to pitch in the big leagues, but it remains unclear what team would want to take a flyer on him. The Giants seemed like a possibility with all of the injured pitchers they have, but they seem certain to roll with their batch of young pitchers to begin the year.

Even if Bumgarner never throws another pitch in major league baseball, he is still one of the greatest San Francisco Giants of all time.

The next former Giant still available in free agency is another great Giant who somehow remains unsigned after a solid 2023.
