San Francisco Giants: 21 players elect minor league free agency

High-profile MLB players like Madison Bumgarner and Will Smith are not the only ones hitting the open market for the San Francisco Giants this offseason.

Here’s a full list of the potentially departing players, courtesy of Baseball America:

  • C Ronnie Freeman
  • C Jin-De Jhang
  • C Hamlet Marte
  • C Francisco Pena
  • 1B Brock Stassi

From that group, outfielder Michael Reed is the only player who saw time at the MLB level for the Giants in 2019, as he notably saw his name penciled into the Opening Day lineup.
