San Francisco Giants

Unlike the Angels and A’s, the San Francisco Giants still do have their franchise shortstop, but not for much longer. Two-time World Series champion Brandon Crawford, who will be 34 years old in January, will be an unrestricted free agent after the 2021 season.

The Giants could be very interested in Rosario for several reasons. He’s under team control through 2023 and can feature him however they like while still benefiting from Crawford next year.

San Francisco shocked the league by remaining in playoff contention until the last week of the regular season, and they have the tools to be just as good next year. Adding Rosario will be beneficial to them and they can benefit the Mets, as well.

Three Giants relievers the Mets could be interested in are Jarlin Garcia, Reyes Moronta, and Wandy Peralta.

Garcia was excellent for the Miami Marlins in 2019 and even better for San Francisco in 2020, boasting a 0.49 ERA and 0.982 WHIP in 19 games. Garcia will be 28 years old in January, is set to make $1.1 million next year, and is under team control for three more seasons.

Moronta boasts a very impressive 2.66 career ERA in three years, will also be 28 in January, and is also under team control for three more seasons.

Peralta, who is 29 years old, hasn’t had as good or as consistent of a career as Garcia or Moronta, but he’s been very effective since going to San Francisco in 2019, boasting a 3.27 ERA and 1.152 WHIP in 33 games. His contract situation is identical to that of Garcia: he’ll be making $1.1 million next year and is under team control through 2023.
