Giants off season outlook

The following look is a look at who is signed, who is not and the various status of every player I currently have listed in the organization. I ahve gone through all the rosters through Augusta. As I add in the remaining two levels (Salem-Keizer and AZL Giants), expect nearly all those players to be "under team control."

Under contract past 2014
RHP Matt Cain (through 2017; 2018 option)
RHP Tim Lincecum (through 2015)
OF Hunter Pence (through 2018)
C Buster Posey (through 2021; 2012 option)
RHP Tim Hudson (through 2015)
Angel Pagan (through 2016)
INF Marco Scutaro (through 2015)
LHP Jeremy Affeltd (through 2015)
RHP Santiago Casilla (through 2015; 2016 option)
LHP Javier Lopez (through 2016)
LHP Madison Bumgarner (through 2017; 2018-19 options)
INF Joaquin Arias (through 2015)
OF Daniel Carbonell (through 2017)

Eligible Major League free agents (more than six years service time)
NOTE: Free agency starts the day after the conclusion of the World Series. The Giants have a five-day window of exclusive negotiating rights.
Within those five days, the Giants can extend a "qualifying offer" to the player. The player can accept (and thus be re-signed), or decline (and resume free agency). The player must decide seven days after an offer is made. If the player declines, and signs with another team, the Giants are eligible to receive compensation (in the form of a draft pick).
RHP Jake Peavy (not eligible for qualifying offer because he did not play full season for Giants)
INF Pablo Sandoval
RHP Sergio Romo
OF Michael Morse
RHP Ryan Vogelsong

Arbitration eligible (more than three seasons, less than six)
For players with less than six years experience, the Giants can tender them a contract, or "non-tender" them, thus the player becomes a free agent.
INF Brandon Belt
OF Gregor Blanco
RHP Juan Gutierrez
RHP Yusmeiro Petit
INF Travis Ishikawa
INF Brandon Crawford

Under team control (less than three seasons)
C Guillermo Qurioz
C Hector Sanchez (potential "Super Two" player, who could be arbitration eligible)
RHP Jean Machi
OF Juan Perez
INF Ehire Adrianza
RHP Brett Bochy
OF Gary Brown
RHP Erik Cordier
OF Chris Dominguez
INF Matt Duffy
INF Adam Duvall
RHP Kendry Flores
RHP Chris Heston
LHP Mike Kickham
RHP George Kontos
INF Joe Panik
OF Jarrett Parker
RHP Hunter Strickland
C Andrew Susac
INF Angel Villalona

Potential minor league free agents
There are multiple ways a minor league player can be eligible for free agency ("six-year" free agent- which really means playing parts of seven eligible seasons in the minors, "XX-D" free agents, meaning the player was optioned in 2014 for at least the second time in his career, or "secondary contract" free agents. I do not break down who is on what list here, but a great explanation can be found here). I do not have knowledge if any of these players have signed a 2015 contract or has some kind of option.
