Giants GM Reveals The Chances Of Signing Another Major Free Agent

The San Francisco Giants got themselves a bargain by signing four-time Gold Glove third baseman to what they're calling a one-year, $18 million contract with player options for two more years. But according to GM Farhan Zaidi, that's the last major move the team will make before the season.  

Per USA Today's Bob Nightengale, Zaidi said "We have talked all offseason and been very consistent that our plan was to continue to graduate some of our young players. The off-season is really over as far as I'm concerned.''

After a slow start, the Giants picked up steam as the offseason got into its later stages, and wound up getting themselves a nice haul of potentially impactful players, without going nuclear with any $300 million contracts, or anything close. 

The biggest move that Zaidi made was signing Korean hitting star Jung Hoo Lee for the leadoff spot and center field, with a 6-year, $113 million deal, then he added fireballing hurler Jordan Hicks with a $44 million deal to move into the starting rotation. Also coming aboard was slugger Jorge Soler with a 3-year, $42 million deal to DH and bat cleanup. Catcher Tom Murphy was also signed, and now Chapman. 

But despite what Jon Heyman suggests in his above post, newer comments from Zaidi on Sunday indicate that the Giants are done making moves.
