    Salary Arbitration: Who Stays and Who Goes?

    I figured this is thread worthy considering there's some tough calls on here.

    Ken Giles – $8.4MM
    Matt Shoemaker – $3.8MM
    Brandon Drury – $2.5MM
    Devon Travis – $1.95MM
    Ryan Tepera – $1.6MM
    Derek Law – $1.3MM
    Luke Maile – $800K
    Ryan Dull – $800K

    The only sure thing is Giles really. I'm down to give Shoemaker another chance too. I think Travis and Dull are gone. Drury, Law, Tepera and Maile are all on the bubble. If one of Jansen or McGuire is dealt (unlikely) then I'd see them keeping Maile otherwise he'd probably be non-tendered. I'm okay giving Drury a year with being our utility bench warmer. I think 1 of Law and Tepera will be non-tendered.

    I would say Dull and Travis are going to be non tendered

    Is Travis gonna be ready to go at spring training?

    I'd say Travis, Maile, Law and Dull are shown the door. Drury should be as well but I see them holding on to him.

    I could see them tendering some guys just to trade them.

    I think Maile and Law stay just based on cost.

    He's out of options even if he is ready. I don't see them keeping him over our other 2B options.

    Well, if he isn’t going to be then it makes the non tender decision pretty easy.

    I could see him back on a minor league deal.

    Drury is dead to me.

    Law’s 2nd half earned him a tender.

    Maile and dull can go.

    Pretty indifferent about Tepera

    Law was pegged as the future closer for the Giants a few years ago. I thought he was done. he's impressed enough - if Giles is traded he gets the closers job.

    And it’s only 1.3m. It would be hard to find anything better at that price tag in free agency.

    I think you hang on to Giles, Shoemaker and Drury. Derek Law was lucky as heck to pitch to a 3.00 ERA in the second half. He walked 25 guys, hit 2 batters and gave up 27 hits in his 32.1 "second half" innings. How his ERA was only 3 is remarkable. I say let him go and find someone better to fill that roster spot.

    There are too many young guys coming up that they need to squeeze on to their 40 man roster next year to keep the rest of them around.



    Here are my top Rule 5 eligible pitchers (not in order):


    1) Dany Jimenez- mid to high 90's FB with a high 80's SL who struck out 93 batters in 59 innings between A+ and AA

    2) Bryan Baker- high 90's FB (which has reportedly touched triple digits this year) with high 80's SL who struck out 71 batters in 54 innings between AA and AAA.

    https://www.baseball-reference.com/r...d=baker-000bry



    3. Jackson McClelland- He can touch triple digits at times with a mid 80's SL and CH.

    4. Corey Copping- mid 90's FB with a low 80's CB who struggled in AAA this year but was great in AA in 2018.

    https://www.baseball-reference.com/r...d=coppin000cor




    That's 4 possible arms that throw mid 90's or higher that could replace him for a third of the cost.
