After their bullpen ended the season on a sour note, the San Francisco Giants are doing their due diligence and speaking with representatives for three of the game's top closers.
All three players are free agents who may cost the Giants a pretty penny, after each posted a stellar season.
Chapman is reportedly looking for a $100-million contract, and the Giants may see competition for his services from the Los Angeles Dodgers, who are reportedly showing interest in the flame-throwing Cuban. The Giants' rival from L.A. is also reportedly interested in re-signing Jansen.
The Giants' bullpen finished ninth in the National League in ERA, and only managed to record 43 saves in 72 opportunities through the regular season. Eleven different players tried to secure a save for San Francisco in 2016.
Hunter Strickland is slated to take over the closer's role if the Giants don't make an addition, but the hard-throwing right-hander is just 4-for-11 in save chances for his career.
