The MLB offseason is fully underway, which means one thing. Well, it means many things, but among those many things is this one thing: Minor League free agents. Lots of them. So many of them.

According to Baseball America, 422 players have been declared Minor League free agents for this offseason. That equals about 14 Minor League free agents per organization. The San Francisco Giants are a little bit above average (hey, we don’t get to say that much these days) and have 16.

Here they are:

Cristhian Adames (INF)
Enderson Franco (RHP)
Yapson Gomez (LHP)
Zach Green (3B)
Tyler Heineman (C)
Chris Herrmann (C)
Jake Jewell (RHP)
Jesus Liranzo (RHP)
Luis Madero (RHP)
Rodolfo Martinez (RHP)
Sam Moll (LHP)
Carlos Navas (RHP)
Joey Rickard (OF)
Nolan Riggs (RHP)
Jose Siri (OF)
Kean Wong (2B)

Five of those players — Adames, Franco, Green, Heineman, and Rickard — ended up playing games for the Giants. Two of them — Heineman and Rickard — played for the Giants this year. And Herrmann, Madero, and Navas were part of the player pool during the 2020 season.

The Giants also re-signed OF Drew Robinson and RHP Raffi Vizcaino to Minor League deals, per @giantsprospects.

It’s not surprising that, with 422 Minor League free agents across baseball, there are some familiar faces for Giants fans. So if you’re looking at players that you want the Giants to dish out contracts to, here are some former Giants who are now available. I’m sure I’m missing some. 422 names is a lot of names.

Matt Duffy (New York Yankees)
Tim Federowicz (Texas Rangers)
Mike Gerber (Colorado Rockies)
Tyler Herb (Atlanta Braves)
Connor Joe (Los Angeles Dodgers)
Ryder Jones (Boston Red Sox)
Tommy Joseph (Boston Red Sox)
Derek Law (Texas Rangers)
Dan Otero (New York Yankees)
