Giants Starter Exercises Opt-Out Clause

A big name just entered the free agents.

San Francisco Giants starter Carlos Rodon exercised his 2023 opt-out clause and became a free agent Sunday.
Rodon signed a two-year deal with the Giants ahead of the 2022 season but will look for a new contract now.

The left-handed starter posted a strong 2.88 ERA, 1.03 WHIP, and 237 strikeouts over 178 innings this season. He held a 14-8 record. 

The twenty-nine-year-old holds a career 3.60 ERA, 1.24 WHIP, and 947 strikeouts over 847 innings of work across is eight-year major league career. He spent seven seasons with the Chicago White Sox before signing with the Giants in 2022.

Rodon will certainly draw plenty of interest in the free agent market this offseason.
