MLB Rumors: San Francisco Giants Expect Slugging Outfielder To Opt Out This Summer


The San Francisco Giants had a promising start to the 2023 season, but unfortunately, their lack of talent throughout the lineup caught up to them, and now, it seems all but guaranteed that they will miss the playoffs for the second straight season.

Now, their off-season fix will reportedly become much harder, as the Giants are now expecting veteran slugger Michael Conforto to opt out of the final year of his deal as he looks to get paid in a big way in a very weak free agent class.

In 2023, the 30-year old Conforto has played in 120 games, tallying 15 home runs and 56 RBI while hitting .243, and while it wasn't his best season, he has still shown the ability to be an impact bat, so he will be very sought after this winter.
