Hello and happy Sunday.

Over the weekend, the San Francisco Giants agreed to a deal with right-handed reliever Reyes Moronta. That left just one of the Giants tendered players without a contract: second baseman Donovan Solano. And it appears that the Giants and Solano will head to arbitration, as they filed at prices roughly $650,000 apart, and were unable to find a spot to compromise on, per’s Mark Feinsand.

Of all the players the Giants tendered, Solano seemed the most likely to head to arbitration, given that he was sensational in 2020, but prior to 2019 — his age 31 season — he had basically no history of being a good MLB player. We’ll see what happens.
