3. The Giants could trade for Reds pitcher Sonny Gray.

The San Francisco Giants had one of the best starting rotations in the league last season.

But, Johnny Cueto is a free agent, as is Kevin Gausman. The Giants are unlikely to bring back Cueto, but Gausman is certainly on their radar.

Unfortunately for the Giants, Gausman has caught the eye of several other teams as well.

If San Francisco hopes to bring back their ace, it's going to cost them. The Seattle Mariners and Los Angeles Angels have their sights set on Gausman.

The Giants were also said to be in on Steven Matz, who eventually signed with the St. Louis Cardinals.

The San Francisco Giants have already re-signed former Reds starter Anthony DeSclafani to a three-year deal.

Alex Wood, who also pitched for Cincinnati, is rumored to be closing in on a new deal with San Francisco as well.

The Giants have money to spend this offseason, so they may be more apt to sign a free agent starter rather than trade for Sonny Gray.

But, if the market dries up and the Giants are left out in the cold, San Francisco's President of Baseball Operations, Farhan Zaidi, may give Nick Krall a call.
