What needs should the SF Giants prioritize this offseason?

2. Shortstop/Infield

The Giants struggled to get any meaningful production from their shortstops in 2023. Brandon Crawford spent time on the injured list, but they cycled through Casey Schmitt, Johan Camargo, and Paul DeJong. Marco Luciano made some loud contact at the end of the season, so he should have the inside track for a lot of playing time.

Nevertheless, they should bring in some competition and depth. Free agency does not have a lot of options with Los Angeles Dodgers infielder Amed Rosario possibly being the best player currently listed as shortstop, but he will likely move off of that position sooner rather than later.

The Giants could go in a few different directions with the infield. J.D. Davis struggled badly in the second half of the year, so maybe they look at that position as an opportunity to upgrade. Or, they look at first base with the intent of moving LaMonte Wade Jr. to more of a DH role. There is some flexibility, but Thairo Estrada is one of the few players penciled into next season's lineup.
