The San Francisco Giants are turning their attention to free-agent outfielder Michael Conforto, according to Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle.

The report comes in the wake of Carlos Correa spurning the Giants to instead sign with the New York Mets, Conforto's former team.

Correa's 13-year, $350-million deal fell through due to a difference of opinion on medicals, though both agent Scott Boras and Giants president of baseball operations Farhan Zaidi declined to elaborate further. The superstar shortstop reportedly landed a 12-year, $315-million contract with the Mets hours after he was originally scheduled to have his introductory press conference in San Francisco.

Both Correa and Conforto are represented by Boras.

Conforto is one of the top outfielders remaining on the open market and has generated interest from multiple teams. Most recently, the 30-year-old was tied to the Mets, Toronto Blue Jays, and Texas Rangers.

The former All-Star missed the entire 2022 campaign after rejecting the Mets' one-year, $18.4-million qualifying offer and undergoing offseason shoulder surgery.

He hit .232/.344/.384 with 14 homers and one stolen base over 125 games in a down year in 2021.

The Giants missed out on Correa and Aaron Judge this winter while also seeing Carlos Rodon leave via free agency.
