The San Francisco Giants have already signed their two top targets of the offseason. Angel Pagan and Marco Scutaro will be returning to AT&T Park next year, and while the Giants could still use a couple additions to their team, the big moves are done.
Seventy-eight million has been committed to Pagan, Scutaro and Jeremy Affeldt over the last month. After tendering contracts to seven arbitration-eligible players on the team, there isn't a whole lot of money to go around.
Needs include a left fielder to split time with Gregor Blanco and another right-handed reliever to fill out the bullpen. “Big-ticket items” like Nick Swisher and even less pricey options like Scott Hairston, are no longer on the radar.
However, San Francisco can add several cheaper players to round out their team and help defend their World Series title in 2013. Rumors have been scarce since Pagan and Scutaro were signed, but here are some potential free-agent targets.
