SF Giants officially eliminated; season will go down as a big disappointment

The San Francisco Giants are officially eliminated. At least it took until October, and at least they put up a fight at the end, but the 2022 Giants' season will no doubt go down as a huge disappointment. When all was said and done, the SF Giants didn't get enough out of their position players and bullpen. The Giants have played well in September/October, but they were sunk by extremely poor play over stretches during the middle of the season. Not a ton of positive development happened for the Giants in 2022, either. Joey Bart and David Villar offer some hope for the future, but they look more like role players than true impact talents. Bart's strikeout issues have resurfaced late in the year, and it's overall not a very impressive line. Villar delivered a walk-off hit for the Giants in their home finale on Sunday, but it wasn't even hit well and was lucky to sneak through into the outfield. Villar is also known to have some defensive limitations as well. Wilmer Flores has been a bright spot ever since he first signed with the team in 2020. Flores was the San Francisco Giants' most inspirational player this year, and he won the Willie Mac Award for his efforts. The Giants signed Flores to a two-year extension with a player/team option for a third year just a few weeks ago. Flores is a player the Giants want around to mentor young players as the team shifts that way in the coming seasons. Finally, Logan Webb was placed on the injured list as a procedural move to get someone else onto the roster. Jakob Junis was optioned for the same reason. Neither will pitch again for the Giants in 2022. Sean Hjelle, another somewhat promising young player to debut in 2022, will likely cover multiple innings on Monday, followed by season finales for Carlos Rodón and Alex Cobb. The Giants' slumping attendance numbers are also discussed, as is the reality that attendance is down across the sport. Find and follow Locked On Giants on your favorite podcast platforms:

Gabe Kapler, Zack Littell share tense moment as Alex Cobb, SF Giants defeat defending champs

San Francisco Giants reliever Zack Littell was out of line. Littell allowed four of the five hitters he faced to reach base, yet somehow he had the nerve to give Giants manager Gabe Kapler a hard time about taking him out of an existing inning. It was absolutely the right decision for Kapler and the Giants to remove Littell in favor of Scott Alexander, a lefty who's been good against Matt Olson, one of the game's best left-handed hitters, with the tying run on third in the eighth. Littell said after the game that he was wrong and that he apologized to the SF Giants' skipper. He was, indeed, out of line, and it was nice to see how the Giants manager handled the situation. He took Littell into the tunnel immediately after returning to the dugout and gave him a good old fashioned talking to. The Giants went on to win the game against the defending champion Atlanta Braves. More details on Wilmer Flores' contract extension with the Giants are discussed. It's actually three years, $16.5 million guaranteed, although the third year is a $3.5 million player option. If Flores declines his option, the Giants hold an $8.5 million club option, which could bring the value of the deal up to 3/$21.5 million. It's a solid deal for both sides. Right-handed flamethrower Cole Waites was added to the roster and could be a big part of the Giants' bullpen moving forward. He didn't make his debut last night, but expect it sometime in this series. Willie Calhoun, acquired earlier in the season for Steven Duggar, was also activated and had an impressive first plate appearance with his childhood team, as he drove in the Giants' first run with a single off the right-field wall.

While it's almost certainly too little too late, it was nice to see the San Francisco Giants play well and show signs of life. Wilmer Flores hit a thrilling walk-off to seal the Giants' sweep of the Phillies. Carlos Rodón was a big bad dude on the mound and racked up his ninth 10+ strikeout game, tying a franchise record. The offense exploded in the series opener, and Alex Cobb continued to be excellent. Cobb, who was so unlucky early in the season, has seen his results-based numbers rebound in a major way. Another win for the underlying numbers... There were several key injury updates over the weekend. SF Giants first baseman Brandon Belt had season-ending knee surgery. Belt is a free agent at the end of the year and it remains to be seen whether he's played his final game in a Giants uniform. Lefty reliever José Álvarez had Tommy John surgery and will miss all of 2023. Álvarez was very good for the Giants last season, but this year was a struggle and it's his last year under contract. Alex Wood has a left shoulder impingement and might be done for the season. He's given up a ton of runs since first dealing with the injury in mid-August. It wasn't a very good second season in San Francisco for Wood, who has an ERA in the 5's. But the underlying metrics suggest he deserved better. Lewis Brinson made his San Francisco Giants debut and collected a couple of hits. The Giants and manager Gabe Kapler used their bench aggressively over the weekend, something they've been able to do more with rosters expanded to 28 from 26. Last year, as a residual effect of the covid-shortened 2020 season, teams had 28-man rosters all season. It was perhaps an underrated reason why the Giants were able to be so successful with pinch hitting, platoons, and matchups. Aaron Judge's impending free agency, and the likelihood of the slugger landing with the Giants, is also discussed. Find and follow Locked On Giants on your favorite podcast platforms:

Do the San Francisco Giants have one of MLB's worst cores? ESPN's Kiley McDaniel ranked all 30 cores, with input from executives around the game, and the SF Giants ranked 28th. These cores include all players under team control through at least 2024 and include prospects. The Giants have no "elite" talent (5+ WAR) locked up, and only Logan Webb falls into the "above average" category (3-5 WAR). The Giants have several players in the "solid" category (2-3 WAR), including major leaguers such as Alex Cobb, Joey Bart, Camilo Doval, Thairo Estrada, Mike Yastrzemski, Austin Slater, and Anthony DeSclafani. Several prospects also fall into this category, including Marco Luciano, Kyle Harrison, Luis Matos, and Patrick Bailey. But the Giants need to supplement their core through free agency. That much has become apparent this season. The Giants got star-level production out of Brandon Crawford, Buster Posey, and Brandon Belt last year, but no position player has come close to matching that production this year. Aaron Judge is a free agent this offseason and would be the best and simplest way for the Giants to add a player long-term who falls into the "elite" category. Judge will probably win the MVP this year, and he grew up a Giants fan. Other players who would help the Giants build a better core include Trea Turner, Carlos Rodón (if the Giants extend him), Carlos Correa, Jacob deGrom, Edwin Díaz, and Brandon Nimmo.

Do the San Francisco Giants need to re-sign Carlos Rodón? The Giants been very good even with Rodón, so it would seem that they'd be setting themselves further back if they don't replace him. The best way for the Giants to replace Carlos Rodón may be for the Giants to bring back ... Carlos Rodón. The Giants' 2023 rotation options are explored. Logan Webb will be eligible for arbitration for the first time, and is under club control for three more seasons. Alex Cobb, Alex Wood, and Anthony DeSclafani have guaranteed deals for 2023. Jakob Junis, who's been a bright spot this season for the Giants, is arbitration eligible for the final time and can be retained for a relatively cheap salary. Free-agent options are discussed. Could the Giants try to sign Jacob deGrom to a short-term, high-AAV deal? Something like two years, $90 million? Or would the Giants be better off spending something like 4/$120M on Rodón? Plenty of options are out there, but Rodón and deGrom are pretty clearly the best available. The Giants should probably sign one of them and also spend aggressively in the position player market, where stars like Aaron Judge and Trea Turner are free agents.

They're not done yet. The San Francisco Giants needed to get hot in a hurry after a miserable start to the second half, and to they're credit they've been able to do it. The Giants won their fourth straight last night behind a gritty Alex Cobb, and improved to 7-2 since they were swept at home in a four-game series by the Dodgers. This is a soft pocket in the schedule, and it was clear that the SF Giants needed to take advantage. Fortunately, they've been able to do so over their last nine games. Now the challenge will be to keep it going. It helps to have excellent starting pitching, and the Giants have quietly had that this year. It's been lost in the shuffle thanks to bad defense and a struggling bullpen dominating the conversation. But Cobb, Logan Webb, Carlos Rodón, Alex Wood, and Jakob Junis have been among the game's best. Cobb was supremely unlucky to start the year, but those sparking peripherals that were discussed ad nauseum early in the season have proved to be more predictive of his future ERA. Cobb has an ERA under 3.00 since late May, which the peripherals predicted. Joey Bart continues to thrive since being called up from the Minors in early July. He has a 144 wRC+ since then, and importantly has only struck out about 31% of the time. That's still pretty high, but nowhere near the 45% rate he posted before being optioned to Sacramento.

Thairo! The San Francsico Giants' unsung infielder delivered a walk-off home run on Sunday, securing a much-needed three-game sweep of the Pittsburgh Pirates. Estrada has emerged as an important player on the Giants this season, and this wasn't the first time he hit a late-inning bomb that helped the Giants win a game. Down by a run with one out in the ninth, Estrada turned on the first pitch he saw and socked it high and deep into left-center field. Estrada has been above-average in pretty much all aspects of the game this season, which is great to see considering his age and multiple years of team control remaining. Co-aces Logan Webb and Carlos Rodón helped the SF Giants win the first two games against Pittsburgh. Even with the win, however, the Giants still have a tough road ahead. Their record is just 57-57, and they are six games out of a playoff spot. But they have nine straight games remaining against below-.500 teams, and will need to continue to take advantage. The D-backs come into town next for a four-game series, and they've been a tough matchup for the Giants this season. Madison Bumgarner will be on the mound opposing Alex Cobb tonight. It remains to be seen how many wins the Giants will need in order to sneak into the playoffs (probably around 88-90), but in order to get in the Giants will simply have to play good baseball for the rest of the season. Joey Bart returned after a few days off with an ankle sprain. He continues to be a bright spot this season, as he has been on a roll since being recalled after an early-season demotion to the minors. Joc Pederson took a pitch off the pinky on Sunday but thankfully X-rays came back negative. Thomas Szapucki was recalled from the minors and replaced Yunior Marte on the active roster. The Giants still have only 12 pitchers, and may make a move for another arm soon. Luis González appears to be a candidate to be optioned if that's the case.

It was certainly an uneven first half for the San Francisco Giants, yet they find themselves just half a game out of a playoff spot with the second half set to begin on Thursday in Los Angeles. The Giants are 12.5 games back in the NL West. The Giants' position players don't really jump off the page, but they've been a solid unit nonetheless. Their team wRC+ of 107 is 10th in MLB and the Giants' baserunning has been a net positive, but defense that has been among the worst in baseball has their overall production more or less league average. If they could improve their defense to go along with a solidly above average offense, they could get back to being one of the upper-third offensive units in baseball. Wilmer Flores, Austin Slater, Thairo Estrada, Mike Yastrzemski, and Joc Pederson all were among the Giants' best contributors. Brandon Crawford, Brandon Belt, Evan Longoria, and Tommy La Stella, for various reasons (injury and underperformance) were differing degrees of disappointing in the first half. As were Darin Ruf and LaMonte Wade Jr. Starting pitching, as expected, has been the Giants' greatest strength. Logan Webb and Carlos Rodón form a dynamic duo at the top. Alex Wood and Alex Cobb have excellent peripherals but seem to have been hurt by the defense. Jakob Junis was a bright spot before getting injured and should re-join the rotation in the second half. Anthony DeSclafani had a disastrous second year for the Giants, as he was totally ineffective and ultimately succumbed to season-ending ankle surgery. The bullpen has taken a big step back, but Camilo Doval, John Brebbia, and Dom Leone were bright spots. Tyler Rogers was also hurt by the SF Giants' poor first-half defense.

For the second time in two days, the San Francisco Giants' right-handed-heavy lineup, the one that faces left-handed starters, led the Giants to a double-digit win. On Sunday, they beat MacKenzie Gore and the Padres 12-0. Yesterday, they lit up Dallas Keuchel and the D-backs by the final score of 13-0. Austin Slater, Yermín Mercedes, Joey Bart, and Thairo Estrada led the way as the SF Giants crushed four home runs in the victory. Giants President of Baseball Operations Farhan Zaidi met with the media prior to Tuesday's win. He discussed the team's disappointing first half of the season, and he talked about the upcoming trade deadline. Zaidi said that he thinks the starting pitching is in a good spot, and it's hard to argue against that with Carlos Rodón and Logan Webb leading the group. Alex Wood and Alex Cobb have peripherals that suggest better results are coming, and Jakob Junis will re-enter the rotation after the All-Star break. Brandon Crawford's supremely disappointing double play the night prior is discussed. Should he have been swinging in a 2-0 count with the bases loaded and the tying run on third (hint: yes). Also discussed is the SF Giants designating Jake McGee for assignment over the weekend. McGee was a crucial part of last year's bullpen, which led the majors in ERA, but the results just weren't there this year. McGee was owed close to $2 million, so this move suggests the Giants are willing to eat a salary if the performance is poor enough. Luis González's return from the IL is also discussed.

Carlos Rodón was a major All-Star snub, and the San Francisco Giants have been a major disappointment so far in 2022. There's something seriously wrong with the All-Star process if a player of Rodón's caliber doesn't make the team, while some decent reliever does just because his team needs an All-Star representative. Logan Webb is also somewhat of a snub; should All-Star rosters simply be bigger? Rodón's snub is not the only think irking SF Giants fans right now. The team has been in a bit of a tailspin as of late, and overall they're just one game over .500 more than halfway through the season. Veterans like Brandon Crawford and Brandon Belt haven't been able to rekindle the magic they had in 2021. The Giants' defense has been atrocious, and it has seriously cost them all year long and led to worse-than-expected results for pitchers like Alex Cobb, Alex Wood, Tyler Rogers, and many others. The Giants didn't add payroll coming off a 107-win season, and it's fair to criticize them for that, particularly given how this season has gone. Buster Posey retired, and they essentially spent the money they would've spent on his 2022 club option on Rodón, who has been excellent, but they didn't really add to their team. They brought back many players who were part of last year's historic season, but they probably should have done more. There were many star position players available to sign, and the Giants only signed Joc Pederson, who has admittedly been a very strong addition. So: will the SF Giants be buyers or sellers at the trade deadline, which is now just three weeks away? It all depends on how they play over these next three weeks, which makes every game very interesting right now. Find and follow Locked On Giants on your favorite podcast platforms:

Carlos Rodón puts SF Giants on his back, gets snubbed from All-Star team

Carlos Rodón has been one of the best pitchers in all of baseball this year. He leads the league in fWAR and FIP and is second in strikeout rate. He put the San Francisco Giants on his back when they absolutely needed it, firing a complete game against the rival Padres on Saturday when a loss would've put the Giants below .500 for the first time all year. Yet somehow, Rodón was not named to the NL All-Star team. It's one of the bigger snubs in recent memory. Rodón absolutely deserves to be there, much more than Joc Pederson actually, but the politics of making sure each team is represented got in his way. It should make Giants fans and baseball fans at large wonder whether All-Star rosters are too small. Either that, or we need to stop making sure each team is represented. How is it good for baseball that Joe Mantiply is an All-Star and Rodón is not? D-backs fans might be happy about that, but that doesn't mean it's right. Clayton Kershaw should be an All-Star, but he hasn't been better than Rodón since he's pitched far fewer innings. Regardless of the All-Star talk, Rodón's complete game was much needed by the Giants. He put the team on his back, and then they carried that momentum into Sunday with a resounding 12-0 win behind an excellent start from Alex Wood. The SF Giants' starting pitching could carry this team in the second half. Logan Webb also deserves to be an All-Star, though his case is more borderline. Wood and Alex Cobb have excellenet peripheral numbers which suggest that they should have better results than they've had to date. Wood showed why on Sunday. The offense also exploded, with Wilmer Flores hitting two homers and several other Giants having good showings at the plate. Hopefully the Giants can carry this into their upcoming series with Arizona and Milwaukee before the All-Star break. Find and follow Locked On Giants on your favorite podcast platforms:

The first half of the season for the San Francsico Giants was pretty ugly. The Giants are 41-40, but that doesn't quite tell the whole story. They began the season 13-5, so they are 28-35 ever since. They've lost seven of their last eight games as well, including a walk-off loss in extras last night. Overall, their position players just haven't been good enough. Austin Slater and Joc Pederson have been good in platoon roles, and Luis González was a real bright spot when he was here and healthy, but veterans like Brandon Crawford, Brandon Belt, Tommy La Stella, and many others just haven't done enough to help the team. Overall, the defense has been the worst in baseball while their team wRC+ is slightly above average. However, the SF Giants rank 20th in overall WAR by their non-pitchers. Not good enough. The starting pitching has been the strength of this team, though it isn't always apparent. Carlos Rodón has been by far the Giants' best player, followed by Logan Webb. Those two have been more valuable than any Giants position player by a wide margin. Alex Cobb and Alex Wood have deserved better fates but the defense and some bad luck has let them down. The bullpen has taken a big step back, but some have seemingly been very unlucky as well, like Tyler Rogers. Camilo Doval has been inconsistent. Dom Leone and John Brebbia had strong first halves.

Carlos Rodón could very well win the Cy Young Award, and then find himself pitching for a new team in 2023. Rodón has been excellent for the San Francisco Giants so far in 2022, but he's getting closer to triggering his right to opt out of his 2023 contract with the Giants, which is for one year and $22.5 million. If Rodón keeps pitching like he has all year, opting out would be a no-brainer, considering he could do much better than 1/$22.5M on the open market. The SF Giants have shown that they generally don't want to sign pitchers to long-term deals, which makes it seem likely that Rodón won't be back in San Francisco in 2023, unless he's willing to accept a shorter-term deal for a high average annual value. The Giants' payroll will remain fluid going into the offseason. If Rodón opts out, they'll have roughly $70 million committed to the 2023 team, a huge fall from their roughly $165M payroll this year. That means lots of room to spend in creative ways. Their rotation looks pretty set with Logan Webb, Alex Wood, Alex Cobb, Jakob Junis, and Anthony DeSclafani signed through at least next year. The Giants could add one top starting pitcher and essentially call it a day. There should be a lot of good ones available, and many should require shorter-term deals than Rodón is likely to command. Last night's tense win is discussed. Rodón was excellent again, Mike Yastrzemski was a star on defense (and he had a clutch two-out, two-strike, two-run single), and Camilo Doval saved the day with a huge pitching performance. Prior to Wednesday's game, LaMonte Wade Jr. was activated off the injured list and inserted into the top of the Giants' lineup. It remains to be seen how the Giants will fit Luis González back onto the squad once he's ready to return from his back injury. Find and follow Locked On Giants on your favorite podcast platforms:

SWEEEP. The SF Giants pulled off an improbable three-game sweep of the Los Angeles Dodgers over the weekend, reminding both clubs that the Giants are not to be taken lightly. The Giants came through clutch all weekend with big pitches, clutch defensive plays, and big hits. Seemingly all season long, they haven't been able to make that big pitch or big play defensively. Too many batted balls have not been turned into outs, but that trend reversed over the weekend. There was a lot of unsustainability in the Giants' high rate of batted balls turning into hits, so sooner or later the tide was likely to turn. Austin Slater and Thairo Estrada made big plays. Jarlín García, Camilo Doval, John Brebbia, and Dom Leone made huge pitches in dicey situations. Darin Ruf, Estrada, Slater, and Mike Yastrzemski hit big homers. It was a thrilling weekend for SF Giants fans, but it wasn't all sunshine and roses. Jakob Junis, whose emergence has been one of the best stories of the year for the Giants, went down with a significant hamstring injury in the sixth inning of his start on Friday. Junis will miss at least 4-8 weeks. Junis had been pitching so well, and he was about to face his former team that had non-tendered him over the weekend. So the timing was bad on multiple levels. But on the bright side, the Giants have Anthony DeSclafani close to returning. Alex Cobb and Matthew Boyd are also getting close as well.

Tommy Pham SLAPPED Joc Pederson in the face prior to the San Francisco Giants' game on Friday against the Cincinnati Reds. Apparently, Pham held onto a grudge for months after he didn't agree with some of the things Pederson wrote in a fantasy football group chat late last year. Pham thought that Pederson was being shady with some rules, but Pederson says he was operating within them and that Pham was actually doing the same thing. Pham also says (and Pederson admits) he made fun of the Padres with a GIF late last season as the SF Giants and Dodgers fought over first place in the NL West and the Padres floundered. Pham took these incidents so poorly that he decided to hit Pederson in the face on Friday. Pederson did not fight back and said that "violence isn't the answer." Pham was suspended for three games by MLB. The Giants then went on to play an ugly series in Cincinnati. Their offense just could not get anything going pretty much all series, until they finally broke through with six runs with two outs in the 8th inning on Sunday. They were being no-hit through 6.2 innings until Thairo Estrada finally broke up the no-no. Evan Longoria delivered the big hit in the 8th, crushing a three-run homer to right that gave the Giants the lead. Luis González added a two-run double, and the Giants would go on to win the finale. Still, it was a rough series and the Giants have played relatively poorly over an extended stretch this month. Their team offense has overall been pretty good, however, with a 112 wRC+. Their pitching has under-performed their peripherals by a wide margin. Alex Cobb has been perhaps the unluckiest pitcher in baseball, but the results finally matched up with the peripherals with a very strong outing on Sunday. The SF Giants have a three-game lead over the final playoff spot and are five games over .500. Despite the poor play as of late, they appear to be in pretty good shape to improve over the remaining 70%+ of the 2022 season. Find and follow Locked On Giants on your favorite podcast platforms:

The San Francisco Giants' starting rotation has been the unluckiest unit in baseball. They've allowed the highest BABIP, and as a team they have the biggest gap between their ERA and their FIP. Results are all that matters in the end, but it's hard to explain these numbers with anything other than luck. Maybe a bit of bad defense, too. It happened to Alex Cobb again last night. He was cruising along before five runs came across after two were out. Three bloop hits with two outs ended up scoring two runs, then Pete Alonso really made the SF Giants pay with a back-breaking three-run homer. It was too much to overcome, and Cobb (6.25 ERA, 2.73 FIP) has by far the biggest gap between his ERA and his FIP among pitchers with at least 30 innings pitcher. Carlos Rodón and Alex Wood are also in the top 13 in that category among 127 pitchers with at least 30 IP. The team is on its second five-game losing streak in the month of May. It's been an ugly stretch of baseball, bad fortune being just a part of it. Looking down to the minors for some potential help and/or bright spots, David Villar remains a call-up candidate as he continues to dominate in Triple-A. He would need to be added to the 40-man roster. Kyle Harrison, meanwhile, earned a promotion to Double-A after he struck out exactly half of the 118 batters he faced this season. He was great in San Jose last year, and somehow managed to get significantly better in Eugene this year. Harrison is just 20 years old, and he's getting closer to the major leagues. His rise is something for Giants fans to watch very closely. Find and follow Locked On Giants on your favorite podcast platforms:
