The Giants spent the Winter Meetings continuing their offseason-long efforts to make an impact move. But Giancarlo Stanton and Shohei Ohtani eluded them shortly before the Meetings began, going to the Yankees and Angels, respectively. Then Miami traded Marcell Ozuna to St. Louis a day before the Meetings ended. Giants officials left the Meetings with general manager Bobby Evans' acknowledgment of "a sense of urgency to upgrade the roster" ringing in their ears.
The Giants announced their player development staff for the 2018 season on Friday, along with their coaching staffs for all eight Minor League affiliates.
The Giants gained a potential Major Leaguer and lost a proven one in Thursday morning's Rule 5 Draft, which unofficially concluded baseball's Winter Meetings.

Grady Fuson was the West Coast honoree at Scout of the Year reception Wednesday night.. Russ Bove of the Blue Jays (East Coast) and Todd "Tiny" Thomas of the Giants (Midwest) also received awards at the 34th annual event, a highlight of the Winter Meetings.
In so many words, Giants general manager Bobby Evans acknowledged Wednesday that the superior depth of the St. Louis Cardinals' farm system helped them, not San Francisco, emerge as trade partners with the Miami Marlins to secure slugging outfielder Marcell Ozuna.
Giants manager Bruce Bochy expressed confidence Tuesday at baseball's Winter Meetings that his ballclub can regain the quiet, almost-but-not-quite-smug confidence it maintained for years. But, Bochy said, the Giants will need a few more early-season wins than they engineered last season.

Interview with Giants manager Bruce Bochy from the Winter Meetings.
Giants general manager Bobby Evans admitted Monday that, when weighing the acquisition of an outfielder, the ballclub might have to consider a performer who's lacking defensively if he's competent offensively. Of course, the Giants would prefer not to make that sacrifice.
Giancarlo Stanton followed his heart as well as his mind in respectfully deciding the Giants weren't the ballclub for him.
The Giants are out of the Giancarlo Stanton sweepstakes, according to a statement released by the team Friday.
The Giants missed out on Shohei Ohtani, the multi-talented Japanese star who is headed to play for the Angels, according to his agent. But the sting of losing the opportunity to obtain such an intriguing performer wasn't exceedingly sharp. Ohtani, the pitcher/outfielder who considered the Giants among seven teams in free agency, surely would have been entertaining. However, he was far from a necessity.
Barry Bonds, who spent a lot of time jogging unimpeded around the bases, actually began his Giants career with a false start.

For the first time in three years, the top spot on MLBPipeline.com's early Draft Top 50 list is not topped by a high school pitcher. It should come as no surprise that the top guy is still a pitcher, and one from the 2017 College World Series champion Florida Gators. Right-hander Brady Singer, who helped pitch them to that title as a sophomore, is the clear choice as the best overall talent in the 2018 Draft class.
The Giants tendered contracts to second baseman Joe Panik and right-handed relief pitchers Cory Gearrin, Sam Dyson and Hunter Strickland, and lefty reliever Will Smith.
Alonzo Powell will bring a wealth of experience with him into his first season as the Giants' hitting coach. Powell, 52, played professionally in the Major Leagues and in Japan. The San Francisco native joins the Giants after serving as the assistant hitting coach for the World Series-champion Astros. MLB.com caught up with him for a chat.
The Giants introduced Curt Young as their new pitching coach on Nov. 6. Young, 57, replaced Dave Righetti, whose 18-year tenure in the position established a franchise record. Young also knows something about longevity, having served two stints totaling 13 seasons as Oakland's pitching coach spanning 2004-17. To get to know Young a little better, MLB.com recently caught up with him for a mostly light 10-question interview.
As a leadoff batter, Denard Span knows that reaching base ranks among his top priorities. He can dictate a game's tone by establishing his team's offensive rhythm. Span, the Giants outfielder, intends to create similar empowerment through his charitable efforts. And in American society, few possessions are more empowering than a car.
Barry Bonds and Jeff Kent frequently appeared back to back in the batting order as Giants teammates. When the subject is Hall of Fame voting, however, Bonds has steadily separated himself from Kent in recent seasons.
Highly rated pitching prospect Tyler Beede was among four players the Giants added to their 40-man roster Monday. Right-hander Tyler Herb, left-hander D.J. Snelton and catcher Aramis Garcia also joined the 40-man contingent before Monday's 5 p.m. PT deadline to protect players from next month's Rule 5 Draft.
After missing much of the second half of the regular season with a groin injury, a healthy Tyler Beede finished his Arizona Fall League campaign Tuesday on a high note with a solid outing in Scottsdale's 6-5 loss against Surprise at Surprise Stadium.
The fourth career Silver Slugger Award that Buster Posey received Thursday validated his season-long effort as the National League's top offensive catcher.
