The 2017 San Francisco Giants season was the Giants' 135th year in Major League Baseball, their 60th year in San Francisco since their move from New York following the 1957 season, and their 18th at AT&T Park. They finished 64–98, last place in the NL West and the NL, their worst record in 32 years.

Offseason[edit]

Preseason predictions[edit]

Preseason predictions for the Giants were generally positive. Ahead of spring training, Sports Illustrated ranked the Giants 10th out of 30 teams in their preseason power rankings, saying that if the bullpen improves as expected, "there’s enough talent here for the Giants to crash the playoffs yet again, despite a very quiet off-season outside of the Melancon deal".[9] Before the first regular-season game of the year, FanGraphs projected that the Giants would win 88 games, giving the team a 18% chance of winning the division and a 66% chance of making the playoffs.[10]
