2. Infielder Wilmer Flores

Similar to Pederson, parting with Wilmer Flores would be a tough move for the Giants. He is a free agent at the end of the season after the Giants picked up his $3.5 million option last offseason.

The right-handed bat has been a steady presence in a lineup that has been inconsistent at times. Flores consistently brings good at-bat quality, plate discipline, and modest power to the table. The 10-year veteran has registered a .242/.331/.405 (106 OPS+) with nine home runs, 41 RBI, and 40 runs in 290 plate appearances with the Giants this year.

He has played in 181.2 innings at third base, but he is likely better suited for the right side of the infield with occasional work as the designated hitter. Given his reliability and modest positional flexibility, he makes sense for a handful of teams including the Houston Astros and the New York Mets.
