The San Francisco Giants continue to find solutions for their 2018 outfield.

Fan Rag Sports’ Jon Heyman reported on Monday that the Giants and Austin Jackson agreed to a two-year deal worth $6 million. He says there are incentives that could make the deal worth $8.5 million.

Jackson had an incredibly strong season in part-time duty with the Indians last season. The soon-to-be 31-year-old batted .318/.387/.482 in 280 at-bats. A center fielder for most of his career, Jackson spent time at all three outfield positions for Cleveland in 2017.

Considering the Giants are getting Jackson for such a cheap price, they can afford to make him part of a platoon in center. Jackson proved to be particularly excellent against left handed pitching last season, as he batted .352 with a 1.014 OPS in 122 at-bats against southpaws.

Only eight players of the San Francisco Giants were on all three (2010, 2012, 2014) World Series-winning teams. Can you name them all?
