Giants haunted by free agent they could have signed in blowout loss to D’backs

PHOENIX — The Giants had vacancies at both corner outfield positions this offseason and under new leadership in the front office, they had the freedom and financial flexibility to fill those spots as they pleased.

President of baseball operations Farhan Zaidi swung for the fences (and missed) with Bryce Harper, took a chance on Rule 5 draft choice Drew Ferguson and attempted to add depth with cost-effective minor league free agents in Gerardo Parra and Cameron Maybin.

One outfielder the Giants didn’t pursue? Free agent Adam Jones, who delivered three hits including a run-scoring double that helped break open the Diamondbacks 7-0 win over the Giants on Friday.
