Belt receives $18.4M qualifying offer; Wood, DeSclafani don’t originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

The Giants on Sunday extended the $18.4 million qualifying offer to first baseman Brandon Belt

However, they did not extend it to pitchers Alex Wood and Anthony DeSclafani.

Here’s the entire list of players who received the qualifying offer before Sunday’s 2 p.m. PT deadline. 

Belt, who will be 34 next April, had a power surge this past season for San Francisco by hitting a career-high 29 home runs. He had a career-best .597 slugging percentage and also finished with a .975 OPS. 

But Belt’s season also only lasted 97 games. He didn’t play again after fracturing his thumb on Sept. 26 and missed the entire NLDS against the Dodgers. 

Players have until Nov. 17 to make a decision regarding the qualifying offer. If Belt accepts, he will be on a one-year contract. If he declines, he’ll become a free agent. If he signs with another team, the Giants will receive compensation by a draft pick. 

The Giants’ compensatory pick will come after Competitive Balance Round B if Belt signs elsewhere.

Wood, 30, went 10-4 with a 3.83 ERA in his first season with the Giants. He started Game 3 of the NLDS and threw 4 2/3 innings without allowing a run in a 1-0 win. 

DeSclafani, 31, went 13-7 with a 3.17 ERA during his first season as a Giant. He started Game 4 of the NLDS and allowed two earned runs in just 1 2/3 innings. 

Both Wood and DeSclafani now are officially free agents.

The Giants also exercised club options for left-handed reliever Jose Alvarez, infielder Wilmer Flores and right-handed reliever Jay Jackson. They official declined Johnny Cueto’s club option. 

Right-handed reliever Yunior Marte was selected to the Giants’ MLB roster.
