On today's Locked On Giants podcast, host Ben Kaspick talks about Giants General Manager Scott Harris saying on Tuesday that the club is targeting left-handed starters and hopes to add one in the coming weeks. This contradicts something Giants President of Baseball Operations Farhan Zaidi said a few weeks ago, that the club was not specifically targeting left-handed pitchers. The news should not come as a surprise, as the Giants currently project to have an all-righty starting rotation, and they lack sufficient starting pitching depth regardless of handedness. Ben discusses which lefty starters are out there in free agency, and which are the most likely fits for the Giants. Cole Hamels, James Paxton, Jose Quintana, Carlos Rodón, Rich Hill, Jon Lester, and others are discussed in detail.
