After signing Tim Lincecum to a two-year, $35 million contract Tuesday, the San Francisco Giants will need to be smart with their money during MLB free agency.

The Giants entered the 2013 season with the sixth-highest payroll of any MLB team at $142,180,333, according to Deadspin. However, they could easily spend more money than that this season after signing Lincecum to such a hefty contract.

According to the McCovey Chronicles, the team has already committed to spending $128,480,000 in 2014, and it still needs to acquire two outfielders, two starting pitchers, two relievers and a bench player.

If the Giants are to stay around the same payroll that they were at last year, they can only spend another $14 million or so. However, filling seven spots on the roster with that little money isn't an easy task.

If the Giants are going to keep their payroll down, they should look into making these savvy moves this offseason.
