Stays? Giants prepare huge contract extension for Kris Bryant

The San Francisco Giants are undoubtedly this season’s breakthrough team in a division. where they didn’t even look like favorites to get to the National League wild card. A month and a half into the season, the Giants continue to lead all of MLB and for the final trade date, they acquired one of the best players available since the Chicago Cubs, Kris Bryant, who has done very well and seems to like life in San Francisco.

The reality is that the Giants took a risk with the signing of Bryant because the player’s contract ends at the end of the current season, however, according to information from Marc Delucchi of Fansided, the Giants are in a great position to to be able to give a contract extension to Kris Bryant, after having extended his MVP, Brandon Crawford, and preparing one for Buster Posey as well.

The Giants seem to have built a contending team in a short time thanks to the work of Farhan Zaidi, and seeing the competitiveness within the roster, as well as the warm reception he has had in the bay could be factors other than the money to convince Bryant to stay, having few teams that could offer him so much being contenders, a great fan base and of course, a large contract.

What is certain is that it will be necessary to see if the Giants can finalize this extension before the end of the season, thus preventing Bryant from going to the free agent market in what has been a good stay at the moment for the former Cubs. , hitting a .295 / .348 ./. 525 line with three homers and 8 RBIs in 16 games with the Giants.
