San Francisco Giants outfielder Joc Pederson was just one of two MLB free agents to accept a qualifying offer at the start of the offseason. Pederson will be manning left field for the Giants in 2023 and hopes to have a new right fielder playing alongside him.

On Tuesday, a day the Giants reportedly rolled out the red carpet for Aaron Judge in his official free agent visit, Pederson took to Instagram to offer his own form of recruiting.

It was a simple message, but an effective one. Sharing a photoshopped picture of Judge wearing the Giants tasteful cream colored uniform, Pederson wrote "I got 99 problems ... winning ain't one. We're ready when you are @thejudge44."

A clear allusion to Judge's infamous #99 jersey.

MLB insider Jon Morosi reported full details of Judge's free agent visit in SF on Tuesday. The team rolled out all of the stops, holding "multiple meetings that went all the way up to the ownership level."

San Francisco has been open about their desire to spend big and spend big to acquire Judge in free agency. He's a northern California native who grew up rooting for the Giants. According to Morosi, Judge may announce his decision in the next couple of weeks.
