On today's Locked On Giants podcast, Ben Kaspick talks about the 2021-22 free agent class, and how it might affect the San Francisco Giants this offseason. The Giants certainly have some areas of need this year, namely starting pitcher, and they figure to go into the 2022 offseason in an even more dire situation. Kevin Gausman, Johnny Cueto, and Anthony DeSclafani are all set to be free agents after the 2021 season, which will leave the Giants with just Logan Webb, Tyler Beede, and any other inexperienced players as the only starting pitchers under team control for 2022 and beyond.

In that case, should the Giants be looking to lock up starting pitchers to multiyear deals now? Trevor Bauer seems like a strong fit. Next year's free agent class has some intriguing names, but do the Giants want to face such enormous uncertainty? That question becomes especially pressing when it is considered that Buster Posey, Brandon Belt, and Brandon Crawford are also set to reach free agency after the 2021 season. The Giants have just about $23M committed for 2022, so it remains an extremely open and pressing question as to when, or if, they're going to spend real money.
