The SF Giants missed out on Shohei Ohtani and Yoshinobu Yamamoto. Their attention has now turned to Blake Snell. If they miss out on him it will turn to Jordan Montgomery, Shōta Imanaga, and on down the line.

Let’s imagine a world where the Giants are unable to land any of these free agents. If that is the case, then the Giants will have to make some trades if they want to have a stronger starting rotation going forward. 

The trade market at this time in the offseason remains murky. With free agency still very much ongoing, the players that teams are willing to deal can be a bit of a guessing game.

However, there have been some rumors about several starting pitchers that teams are looking to deal in a trade. 

Plus, the Giants may have an advantage in trade negotiations with other teams because they can deal from their wealth of young pitching prospects in order to make a deal for one of these starting pitchers.

The SF Giants organization and fans alike can agree that the rotation needs to improve if the Giants want any chance at the postseason in 2024. If the free agency woes continue, then the Giants could be forced to deal for one, or more, of the following three pitchers.
