Evaluating the SF Giants' uneven first half of 2022

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.

SF Giants' position players falter in second straight mediocre month overall

The San Francisco Giants, surprisingly, had the NL's second-best team ERA in the month of June. Yet they only managed a 13-13 record, their second straight month of mediocre baseball. The Giants are currently on the outside looking in of the NL Wild Card picture, but they trail the final spot by just a single game. The Giants' June overall is evaluated. Carlos Rodón righted the ship in a major way, establishing himself as a legitimate Cy Young candidate. He was easily the Giants' best player this month. Not far behind him was Logan Webb, who has also had an excellent season. The bullpen was also good, led by Camilo Doval and John Brebbia. Alex Wood and Anthony DeSclafani really struggled in June, although DeSclafani only pitched 5.2 innings (but his ERA was near 20.00). It was the position players who were costly. Evan Longoria and Joc Pederson had strong months, but otherwise there wasn't much to write home about. Mike Yastrzemski cooled off in a major way, and Brandon Belt and Brandon Crawford continued to be essentially non-factors. LaMonte Wade Jr. played in just one game in June, but thankfully he is now back. Donovan Walton has played a lot and been a net negative. Jason Vosler's somewhat surprising demotion is discussed as well. Find and follow Locked On Giants on your favorite podcast platforms:

SF Giants' Carlos Rodón looks like a Cy Young candidate—but will he be back in 2023?

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:

Are the San Francisco Giants un-clutch? It sure feels that way sometimes, and their woes continued last night as they only got one total run out of a bases loaded, no out situation in the 8th and a second and third, one out situation in the 9th. Their numbers with the bases loaded and no outs are abysmal, but it's a tiny sample of just 14 plate appearances. With the bases loaded and one out, their numbers are excellent. Tommy La Stella popped out in the former situation, and Austin Slater got a hit in the latter. However, Slater's ball was hit so hard that it only scored one run. Wilmer Flores then came up in that same bases loaded, one out scenario and he chased a pitch in the dirt for strike three that would have been ball four and the lead. The league average rate of scoring a runner from third with less than two outs is 52.2%. The SF Giants come in at a below average rate of 49.7%, but it's not too far off the league mark, and several good teams, including the Astros, Braves, and Dodgers are beneath the San Francisco Giants. Logan Webb was great in this game, but the Giants' offense wasn't able to pick him up. Still, the Giants are on a 91-win pace and will have a chance at redemption this evening. Anthony DeSclafani is set to be activated off the 60-day injured list, which will require a corresponding 40-man move (in addition to a 26-man move to add him to the active roster).

Clean defense and a good, clutch bullpen? It's a run prevention recipe that worked exceptionally well for the San Francisco Giants in 2021, and we've started to see more of that recently in 2022. For the longest time, the SF Giants' pitching and defense was letting them down, but things have started to normalize in recent games. The Giants fell behind 2-0 early with Alex Wood on the mound, something that was all too familiar in May, but this time they were able to hold the line and tack on runs as the game went along. Royals starter Brady Singer at one point walked four consecutive batters after a two-out double by Austin Wynns. Donovan Walton, Mike Yastrzemski, and Darin Ruf made clutch defensive plays. Jake McGee, Mauricio Llovera, and Camilo Doval pitched clean innings out of the 'pen. When those two things are happening, the Giants are tough to beat. Brandon Crawford had a big hit. Thairo Estrada drove in a run with a single. Injury updates on Brandon Belt, LaMonte Wade Jr., Matthew Boyd, and Anthony DeSclafani are also provided.

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.

What are the San Francisco Giants' trading plans moving forward? With the team right in the thick of the playoff race, will they look to make a major addition like they did with Kris Bryant last season? SF Giants President of Baseball Operations Farhan Zaidi has a well-established track record of making major, win-now moves at the trading deadline. Who are some players the Giants could target? Willson Contreras has made a lot of sense all along, and his name continues to be one to circle in red ink. The Giants could also seek bullpen help, and a lot will depend on the health of currently injured players like Brandon Belt and LaMonte Wade Jr. Also discussed is what happens with Luis González when Steven Duggar is ready to return, and whether Jakob Junis has earned a permanent spot in the rotation even with the impending returns of Anthony DeSclafani and Matthew Boyd, both of whom are expected to fill rotation spots.

At the beginning of the year, no one gave much thought to players like Jakob Junis, Jason Vosler, or Luis González. Donovan Walton was in another organization. But those players have established themselves as legitimate contributors on an SF Giants team that is now 29-24 despite not playing all that well all season long. Yes, the Giants have been merely mediocre for the past month-plus. But they've been a resilient bunch, and new players have been a big reason why. Walton hit a huge grand slam in the win on Sunday. He had a bases-clearing double on Saturday. Junis pitched a gem on getaway day. Vosler hit two big homers in the series and played exceptional defense. González was the NL's Rookie of the Month in May. The Giants have not been healthy all season. Brandon Belt and LaMonte Wade Jr. continue to be out with knee injuries. Anthony DeSclafani has barely pitched all year. But because of those new contributors, and strong seasons out of the likes of veterans Mike Yastrzemski and Joc Pederson, the San Francisco Giants have hung around above .500 and are still in good position to go on a run. They currently hold a two-game lead over a playoff spot. They haven't yet hit their stride but there is reason for optimism that it will happen eventually.

Well, they did it. The San Francisco Giants made another unpopular option decision, sending hot-hitting outfielder Luis González back to the minor leagues. González didn't deserve to be demoted, but the Giants had virtually no other choice. The only other conceivable option would've been carrying only 12 pitchers, which was clearly something they did not want to do—particularly in Denver. Same thing happened with LaMonte Wade Jr. last year, and he was back up in four days after Brandon Belt got hurt. González very much put himself on the map with his month of strong play in the majors, and rest assured that he will be back. This is his last option year, and the SF Giants can retain his rights for six seasons. If he continues to play well, he could be part of the mix for a long time. Starting next season, he will no longer be able to be optioned. Getting to the actual game, it was the Curt Casali and Mike Yastrzemski show on offense. Those two combined for three home runs, and the Giants needed every last one. Casali slugged two, and SF Giants catchers are now second in the majors in wRC+. Yastrzemski has been strong all season, and his home run last night was an impressive blast to right that traveled 420 feet. The San Francisco Giants' offense is second in the majors in runs scored per game. John Brebbia and Camilo Doval closed it out in the final two frames with scoreless outings. Prior to the game, Mauricio Llovera was added to the roster, Yunior Marte was optioned, and Anthony DeSclafani was placed on the 60-day injured list. DeSclafani isn't eligible to return until June 21. Find and follow Locked On Giants on your favorite podcast platforms:

That's more like it! The San Francisco Giants got a much-needed split against the Cardinals this weekend, salvaging the series by winning the last two games. Buster Posey day sparked the Giants to a blowout win on Saturday, and clutch home runs and pitching performances propelled the Giants to a close win on Mother's Day. They're getting healthy. Brandon Belt, Dom Leone, and Zack Littell were activated off the Covid-IL. LaMonte Wade Jr. finally returned from his knee injury that had kept him out the entire season. Mike Yastrzemski recently came back from the Covid IL and has continued to swing a hot all season. He added a clutch splash hit that was instrumental in Sunday's 4-3 win. Alex Cobb's spectacular peripherals are discussed. He has an unsightly 4.80 ERA, but the peripherals suggest much better results are coming. He's striking people out at a well-above-average rate, and inducing a crazy rate of ground balls. He, along with Carlos Rodón, Logan Webb, Alex Wood, Anthony DeSclafani, Jakob Junis, Matthew Boyd, and others, should put the Giants in a position to win pretty much every single day. The Rockies come into town next, with the same 16-12 record as the Giants. However, unlike the Giants, the Rockies have a negative run differential. They've been able to play above their weight class so far, but regression is likely coming. Why not have it start tonight? Find and follow Locked On Giants on your favorite podcast platforms:

It's hard to win a series when you allow 28 runs on 45 hits. That's over nine runs per game—yikes! The San Francisco Giants are dealing with a huge amount of injuries and a Covid outbreak, but that really wasn't why they got blown out by the Nationals over the weekend. Chalk the series loss up to uncharacteristically poor pitching. Alex Wood and Alex Cobb failed to set the tone in each of their starts, putting the Giants in big early holes. Cobb was returning off the injured list after missing a couple of starts with a groin injury. But yes, the Giants look largely unfamiliar due to all of their injuries and the Covid outbreak. Mike Yastrzemski, Brandon Belt, Dom Leone, and Zack Littell have tested positive for Covid-19. LaMonte Wade Jr., Evan Longoria, Tommy La Stella, and Anthony DeSclafani remain on the injured list. They're missing about 10 guys from their active roster who would ordinarily be in there. As a result, we're seeing a lot of the likes of Luis González (who's done a really nice job), Jason Krizan, Mike Ford (just acquired in a trade in response to all of the players on the IL), and Jason Vosler. Joc Pederson and Austin Slater are also banged up, but thankfully not on the IL. Despite it all, the Giants' hitting was not the problem this weekend, and hasn't been a problem all season. They're scoring the most runs per game in all of baseball (5.0), and scored six runs per game in this series. It was a weird one, but the Giants have no choice but to turn the page, try to get healthy, and get ready to face the Dodgers on Tuesday.

The San Francisco Giants have won twice as many regular season games as they've lost since the start of the 2021 season. At 120-60, the Giants have the best record in baseball over that span. It's a remarkable achievement for a team that people expected to struggle in both 2021 and 2022. After leading the majors with 107 wins last year, the Giants trail only the Mets in winning percentage so far in 2022. Last night, it was another dazzling performance by Carlos Rodón, who has been nothing short of dominant over his first four starts. He leads the majors in strikeout rate, and has allowed three or fewer hits and one or fewer runs while striking out eight or more in all four of his starts. Jacob deGrom is the only other pitcher in the to do that over any four-game span in the modern era. Wilmer Flores and Austin Slater each hit three-run homers as the SF Giants coasted to a victory and a 13-5 record. It was their third straight win, each in consecutive days and in a different time zone. Zack Littell landed on the injured list prior to the game after testing positive for Covid-19. He joins Mike Yastrzemski on the Covid-IL. Kervin Castro was added to the roster as a replacement. Tonight, Sam Long will take the mound for the injured Anthony DeSclafani. Long has been fantastic, and Jakob Junis is likely to pitch after Long opens. Junis had a spectacular debut with the Giants in a bullpen game on Friday.

The Giants responded to criticism about their offense with a 24-run eruption in a sweep of the Washington Nationals. The Giants are 11-5 with the sport's second-best run differential. Doesn't matter that the Nats are an inferior opponent; doesn't matter that their runs have come in bunches. Runs are runs, and the Giants have played like one of the best teams in baseball so far in 2022. Joc Pederson continues to look like a great free-agent signing. All he's done is hit, and he hit two more home runs and a double on Sunday. Compare his production to a similar player like Kyle Schwarber, who signed a four-year, $79 million deal with the Phillies this winter. Look at the below-average production so far from the likes of Carlos Correa, Marcus Semien, Trevor Story, and many others. Would it make fans feel better if the Giants were paying Pederson more money? It's not about what they're paid; it's about the production on the field. And so far, additions like Pederson and Rodón have played like some of the best free-agent additions in baseball. The state of the roster is discussed. Mike Yastrzemski tested positive for Covid-19 and will be out for a while. Luis González was added to the 40-man as Steven Duggar went on the 60-day IL with an oblique injury. Jakob Junis was added and was brilliant in a bullpen game on Friday. LaMonte Wade Jr. started a rehab assignment on Saturday and is close to returning. Anthony DeSclafani was placed on the 10-day IL with right ankle inflammation. There was another dumb unwritten rules controversey, with the Nationals ultimately looking like a bunch of babies. Thairo Estrada attempted to steal second with a six-run lead in the ninth inning, with the Nationals neglecting to hold him on, and they took offense. The Giants don't care about these ridiculous unwritten rules, and the sport will be better off for it. Find and follow Locked On Giants on your favorite podcast platforms:

Carlos Rodón for Cy Young? He sure has pitched that way through his first three starts with the San Francisco Giants. Rodón struggled with command at times in Wednesday's nice team win against the Mets, but when he was able to throw strikes, he was unhittable. He's struck out 29 batters in his first three starts, good for a ridiculous 44 K%, and it's the most strikeouts by a pitcher in their first three games with the Giants. The offense set the tone early, with three quick runs against a good starter in Chris Bassitt. Brandon Belt got a hit for the first time in his career on his birthday, and it was a home run to boot. Mike Yastrzemski had a couple of much-needed knocks. Joey Bart had a critical caught stealing against Starling Marte, who had 47 steals in 52 attempts last year. Bart continues to have major strikeout issues at the plate, but his defense has been solid all year. The bullpen closed it out with Rodón only being able to go five innings due to pitch inefficiency. But the 'pen stepped up, as they have so often in the past couple of years. They're an unheralded group. Jake McGee was a bit shaky with command in the 9th but got the job done. Tyler Rogers and John Brebbia gave up one run each, but they've been more than solid in the early season. Now, the Giants turn the page to Anthony DeSclafani vs. Carlos Carrasco in the series finale, with a chance for a split and a happy flight.

Do the San Francisco Giants have MLB's best starting pitching staff? They sure do look to have a case after going nine straight starts to begin the season with two earned runs or fewer allowed by the starters. In Cleveland, Carlos Rodón, Anthony DeSclafani, and Alex Wood led the Giants to a series sweep. San Francisco is 7-2 and has allowed the fewest runs in baseball by far. Offensively, it's largely been a grind thus far. Their expected numbers have consistently been ahead of their actual results. That's a good sign, as expected numbers are more predictive of future performance. Sure enough, on Sunday, the offense seemed to finally break through. Brandon Belt and Thairo Estrada homered, and several SF Giants had good days at the plate. Joc Pederson has been swinging the bat well all season. Now the Giants go to New York to face the Mets. If anyone has rivaled the Giants' pitching so far this year it's been the Mets. On paper, this is a heavyweight matchup of two of the game's best pitching staffs. On Tuesday, the matchup is set to be Logan Webb against Max Scherzer. The Giants seem well positioned to win at least a couple of games in New York, especially considering that the Mets are dealing with a couple of key absences on the Covid-19 IL.

The Giants don't care about the unwritten rules. Even if they're winning by a lot late in the game, they're going to keep trying to score. Why shouldn't they? The oppoenent is still trying to win, and they won't apologize if they come back. For the San Francisco Giants, it's completely unemotional. They see a strategic reason why they should always continue to apply pressure to the opposing team. Critically, Gabe Kapler said the Giants will not be upset if the opposing team does the same to them. It's a refreshing stance that seems like it could make a real difference in unwritten rules that are not exactly good for the game. Logan Webb delivered another gem in Wednesday's win, and the SF Giants improved to 4-2 on the young season. The starting pitching has been as advertised, with Webb, Carlos Rodón, Anthony DeSclafani, Alex Wood, and Alex Cobb collective producing the game's highest strikeout rate, fifth-lowest walk rate, and third-highest ground ball rate among starting pitchers.

The Giants begin their NL West title defense TODAY. Logan Webb will take the mound for the San Francisco Giants in a rare Opening Day in San Francisco, as the Giants look to build off their shocking and remarkable 107-win season in 2021. The Giants' lineup is missing key contributors from last year like Buster Posey and Kris Bryant, but they're a deep and flexible group that should continue to be a problem for opposing pitchers. Webb leads a staff that figures to be among the best in baseball. New to the Giants are Carlos Rodón and Alex Cobb, who join returnees Alex Wood and Anthony DeSclafani. Joc Pederson, the former Dodgers, joins the lineup and should add thump against right-handed pitchers, whom the Giants figure to see a lot of over the first month of the season. What will the Giants' record be in 2022? The prediction here is 91-71, which ought to be good enough to make one of the six up-for-grabs playoff spots in the National League.

Yes, the San Francisco Giants released their 2022 Opening Day roster today. No, it does not feature Buster Posey, Kris Bryant, or any of the superstar hitters who were free agents this offseason. But it does feature two aces at the top of a deep rotation. And the position players should form versatile lineups that can maximize performance and exceed expectations again. It also features an underrated bullpen, one that posted the majors' best ERA last season, plus a full season of breakout sensation Camilo Doval. Carlos Rodón and Logan Webb could be as any 1-2 punch in the game. Anthony DeSclafani, Alex Wood, and Alex Cobb are as solid of a back-three as there is in the sport. Doval, McGee, Tyler Rogers, Dominic Leone, Jarlin Garcia, and others make up a better-than-perceived bullpen. Fringe pitchers who made the roster include Tyler Beede and Sam Long. On the position player side, Mauricio Dubón and Luke Williams are the fringe players to make the team. Find and follow Locked On Giants on your favorite podcast platforms:

Carlos Rodón was an underrated addition, and he and Logan Webb could be legitimate co-aces on one of the best starting staffs in baseball. But their main position player addition was ... Joc Pederson? When stars like Seiya Suzuki, Marcus Semien, Corey Seager, Carlos Correa, Freddie Freeman, and others were available to sign? And the Giants had so much money coming off the books? Yes, the Giants had a strange offseason. On the one hand, they brought back several key players such as Brandon Belt, Brandon Crawford (mid-season extension), Anthony DeSclafani, and Alex Wood. They brought in Alex Cobb, who could be a big upgrade at the back of the rotation. They stockpiled pitching depth in the form of Matthew Boyd, Jakob Junis, and Carlos Martinez. But it's hard not to be underwhelmed by simply adding Pederson to a team that lost the likes of Buster Posey, Kris Bryant, and Donovan Solano. They'll probably be fine, but it's understandable that some fans are frustrated. The Giants' payroll looks to be about flat with last year's final payroll of $162 million. They rank 13th in MLB, but they figure to be a good team that has future flexibility (much better than being stuck with bloated contracts and a bad team, which is what Farhan Zaidi took over in 2018) to make additions if they so desire. They're in a good place as 2022 is set to begin on Friday. Find and follow Locked On Giants on your favorite podcast platforms:

The Giants are hoping for another Joctober. Joc Pederson has been an October baseball staple over the course of his career, and he joins the SF Giants on a one-year deal. Matthew Boyd, an intriguing depth signing for the rotation, also joins the team for 2023. However, the news of these two signings was overshadowed by the Dodgers acquiring yet another superstar in his prime, inking Freddie Freeman to a six-year deal last night. On today's Locked On Giants podcast, host Ben Kaspick talks about how Pederson and Boyd will fit the Giants, and why he understands fans' disappointment at the relatively small moves compared to the Dodgers' acquisition of Freeman. The Giants have spent money this offseason, but they've really spread it around and haven't made any commitments longer than three years. Anthony DeSclafani, Alex Wood, and Brandon Belt were re-signed. Alex Cobb and Carlos Rodón were added to the rotation. Pederson joins the offense, and the likes of Boyd, Jakob Junis, and Carlos Martínez are depth signings for the rotation/bullpen. Ben also discusses the official changes to the schedule to make up the six games that were lopped off from the beginning of the year. The Giants make up the games in some tough ways in Milwaukee, and now end the year on the road against the Padres. The Dodgers get the advantage of ending the season with six home games against the lowly Rockies, who, by the way, signed Kris Bryant to a seven-year, $182 million deal yesterday.

Carlos Rodón, Carlos Martínez, and Jakob Junis are San Francisco Giants. When the lockout ended, the Giants' pitching staff looked solid, but lacked a front-line arm to pair with Logan Webb. Rodón fills that void, as he has the upside of a true ace. With a starting five seemingly in place, it was still a group that looked particularly vulnerable to potential injuries. Enter Martínez and Junis, who represent a nice secondary layer of depth. This is how the Giants built out their staff last season, and it worked exceptionally well. Now that the starting staff looks well equipped, with Webb, Rodón, Anthony DeSclafani, Alex Wood, and Alex Cobb leading the group (a couple more additions may be necessary), the Giants can turn their attention to the position-player segment of the market. Several very good option remain: Carlos Correa, Freddie Freeman, Trevor Story, Seiya Suzuki, Nick Castellanos, Kyle Schwarber, Kris Bryant, Tommy Pham, and Michael Conforto among them. Ben thinks there's a pretty good chance at least one of those players is wearing an SF Giants uniform in 2022. Finally, Ben looks at the Giants' under-the-radar pickup of José Godoy off waivers. Godoy becomes the Giants' third catcher on the 40-man roster, an important position to be in behind the unproven Joey Bart and veteran Curt Casali. If there's an injury or if Bart struggles, the Giants will need to rely on their next-in-line catchers, an area in which they were lacking after everyone moved up on the depth chart following Buster Posey's somewhat unexpected retirement.

The Giants just made a major move, signing LHP Carlos Rodón to a two-year, $44 million deal. Rodón joins breakout star Logan Webb at the top of the Giants' rotation, one that now looks to be among the best in the game -- assuming health. Health is not something that can be assumed with the rest of the Giants' rotation, let alone Rodón. He has dealt with injuries throughout his career, including shoulder fatigue in 2021. Nevertheless, he has huge upside when he's on the field, as evidenced by his sensational ERA and strikeout rate last season, both of which ranked among the very best in the game. With Rodón in the fold, the Giants are likely to turn their attention to adding a significant piece on offense. They'll need to continue to stockpile depth on the starting pitching front, but the heavy lifting is out of the way after the Giants re-signed Anthony DeSclafani and Alex Wood prior to the lockout, in addition to bringing in newcomer Alex Cobb on a two-year deal. Kevin Gausman, notably, departed on a five-year deal with the Blue Jays. Find and follow Locked On Giants on your favorite podcast platforms:
